o1. You must be 18 or older to join. This is simply because we do not want to be responsible for influencing minors, in any way. If you're under 18 you cannot join. There will be no exceptions. Make sure that at least the year of your birth is displayed on your userinfo, or you will not be accepted.
o2. You do not have to be emaciated, or even at an anorexic weight to be a part of the community. You do have to be actively pursuing weight loss and have an ultimate goal of emaciation. This is the nature of the community. If this is not your goal, I suggest looking somewhere else.
o3. You must already have an eating disorder. I cannot stress this enough. That doesn't mean you have to have been diagnosed by a doctor, or hospitalized, but it does mean that we will not be helping people "develop" eating disorders.
o4. (th)Inspirational pictures, lyrics, etc are allowed. Just put them behind an lj-cut and include a NSFW warning if needed.
o5. Numbers are allowed. If you want to post your weight or calorie intake, feel free. That's part of what this community is for. Detailed posts about binges or self-injury should be put behind an lj-cut with a warning attached.
o6. Posting is not optional. There will be no lurkers here. You do not have to post every day, but if you are inactive you will be removed from the community.
o7. Posts must be friends only. Always.
o8. No fighting. If there is an issue that needs to be discussed, by all means do so. I encourage you to find your voice and speak out when you feel it necessary. But. There will be no injury to personal character, and the mods retain the right to freeze commenting if they feel it necessary.
o9. You may not promote in the community. If you have your own community and would like the mods to consider it as a sister community, please feel free to ask. If you want to promote a community you may do so here.

This community does not encourage the development of eating disorders. If you want to learn how to lose weight, you have the wrong place.
