READ ALL OF THIS INFORMATION BEFORE SUBMITTING AN APPLICATION.
STEP 1:If you have a FRIENDS ONLY journal please make sure that you add all the official members so that we can rate your journal fairly.
Failure to do so will result in a drastic removal of points. The reason that we ask this is because reading your actual journal is part of the application process.
And no you don’t have to keep us on there after.
STEP 2: If you want to become a member of non_loser, fill out the application form below and post it to the community. Then it will be checked by a community moderator before being listed on the main page. Following then, existing members will vote on your application over the next 3 days. Until those 3 days have passed, you can't post a comment in any post other than your own application.
After 3 days, if you've received enough "Yes" votes then you'll be stamped and added to the list of members (at the bottom of this page.) Then you can vote on new applicants and make other posts.
Important Points to Remember:
Due to the fact that the uJournal community doesn't have an age limit, anyone coming over from uJ is exempt from the age requirement. All others must be at least 16 year old. Some exceptions may be made but please send one of the moderators an IM or email requesting so.
DO NOT change the layout of your journal after you've submitted an application. In the past, people would respond to negative comments and change their layout and/or colour scheme accordingly. This isn't allowed, you will be automatically banned if you're caught doing this. Don't try and be clever. dansetothe80s always spots any punks trying this.
If you are easily offended, can't stand rejection, or think you are omnipotent and may keel over and die if someone doesn't actually like you, then think very carefully before posting. Some of our members rate people harshly. If you try and cuss them out, they'll just think it's funny. Whiners, complainers, bitchy people whether male, female or alien are not welcome here. If, on the other hand, you appreciate a little constructive criticism then read on.
You must use an lj-cut tag in your application, or it won't be accepted. If you don't know how to do so, click here. We aren't going to edit your posts for you- either sort it out yourself, or don't submit an application.
You cannot vote on an application without being stamped and accepted. If you vote or even comment on an application that is not your own, you will be banned. If you have a question, feel free to contact one of the moderater via AIM or email.
Without further ado, here's the application form:

10 points-journal layout
If you have a cool layout. Meaning assorted background pics or fixed backgrounds or anything like that.
We like: Easy to read layouts with nice pictures. We don't like: Journals with fonts like this that are impossible to read and a lack of innovation.
10 points- Readability
Can your journal be read easily, or do we need a You to English translator?
We like: Good usage of spelling and grammar, knowing what the shift key is, proper paragraphs We don't like: Knot noin how 2 spel or TyPE proporlee.
15 points- Interesting?
Pretty obvious, this one.
We like: Interesting, funny, clever, original, decent journals. We don't like: A lack of entries and/or detail, sheer boredom reering its ugly head.
You'll need 35/50 to gain entry to the community. Don't worry, most people are pretty fair. Assuming your journal doesn't suck. If you've any questions, you can ask either the moderators or the specialists on their journals. They are listed below.
If you get accepted to the community, you can leave a post with three of your interests which will be added to the community.
If you don't get accepted... don't worry about it. You won't be the first or the last. You can apply again in about two weeks, assuming you've improved whatever we didn't like. You can't get in on the double jeopardy rule.
AND finally, If you have any problems with this community then please take it up with one of the moderators on their journals. Don't clutter the community with useless garbage- you'll be banned and then we just won't care after that.
