Make sure to use your searchbutton or be willing to go back a few pages to see if something has alreadybeen posted so that the information isn't repeated time and time again! Forexample, when you see a thread discussing MCR’s latest video and you want toshare your favorite part, please post in the existing thread rather thanstarting a new one. Asking questions isn't necessarily a bad thing; however,please use the search button first. Do not post the same thread in more thanone forum. This will all keep the board less cluttered and help things to runmore smoothly. Please post topics in their appropriate forums. If youposted a thread (that doesn't belong in the forum it was posted in) and it hassuddenly disappeared, chances are it has been moved to the appropriate forum.Please look there and please DO NOT re-post a moved thread because you cannotfind it. Also, feel free to refer back to the forum descriptionsabove when posting topics. If you aren’t sure where to post, come back here andre-read the info.

Some peopleare on here every day and have relationships outside of the boards. Do notexpect to make friends over night. Don’t be afraid of posting or askingquestions. We’re all here for the same reasons. Also, don’t hesitate to contactthe board admin/mods. They’re here to answer your questions and make thismessage board a great place for all fans to hang out. If you stick aroundthough, you'll make friends and participate in a lot of fun activities. **That said, please be extra cautious giving out anypersonal information. Additionally, do not post anyone else’s personal/ privateinformation on the boards.** 4. Respect Board Members: Please be respectful of others. It is ok to have an opinion;however, it is not an invitation to bash someone. Disagreement is OK.Controversy is OK. Everyone can be respectful when they disagree. There is noneed to get nasty over a disagreement. Keep in mind that people of all agesread these boards. Some people may kid around and be sarcastic, but I thinkpeople can generally decipher the difference. Provoking them will not solveanything and if they are bothersome to everyone (and its obvious), they will betaken care of. Report ANY thread you think a moderator should look at.Sometimes the board admin/mods might miss a thread. If you find spammers,obnoxious threads, or anything you think should be reported, send the mods/admina message or report the thread (see below for more info on reporting posts). 5. Personal Attacks and Trolls: Sometimes, disagreements can turn into personal conflicts. This canbe classified as something going beyond a minor disagreement and it turninginto something that can be handled outside of the boards. Please, try to avoidthese, or they will be handled otherwise. However, if someone makes fun of youbecause you didn't read the above listed advice, that is NOT considered apersonal attack. There is a difference. If it needs to be more clearly definedlater, that can be arranged. 6. Closed/DeletedThreads: Please be aware that if you don't follow the rules, there will beconsequences. It’s up to the discretion of the board admin and moderators.Threads/posts can get deleted, edited, or closed when deemed appropriate. Mostlikely there is an explanation why a thread has been closed; however, if youare unsure why one of your topics gets closed or deleted, contact the admin/modthat closed it. Threads/posts will ALMOST never be disposed of for an opinion.However, the option is always there for a thread to be deleted/edited(especially if it goes against the board regulations). 7. Reporting Posts:Do you see a post/thread with content that you think violates some of the ruleslisted above? Most of the time a board admin or mod will catch it. If it’s notclosed or handled quickly, feel free to report the post. Although they try, itis not possible for admin/mods to view every post on every page all the time.Any help you can provide in helping us solve these problems is greatlyappreciated. When reporting a post, please make sure to include a descriptionwhy the admin/mod needs to address the thread or post. It will help them knowwhat they are looking for instead of reading through pages of posts. If thereare certain members causing trouble in a particular thread, make sure youinclude their usernames and why you think they should be reported. **To report a post, use the Report button on the bottom-lefthand side of each post. If you can’t find it and still want to report thethread, copy the thread link and send it in a message to the boardadmin/mods.** 8. Signature Guidelines: For more information on signature guidelines, click here. 9. Spelling and Grammar: When posting, please make sure to double check your spelling.Additionally, please refrain from using text/AIM speak such as, "i wnt 2tlk b4 tmrrw" or "idk y u r tlking lyke that". It's ok to usesome terms like "lol", "bff" or other common abbreviations,but please don't compose a whole post like that. We appreciate your input andwant to make sure that everyone can read it. Also, please don't use a large font or bright colors as yourdefault posting settings. It's ok to use once in a while, but can make yourposts difficult for members to read. 10. FileTrading/ Bootlegs: Discussion of how and where to obtain bootleg (illegallyrecorded) audios or videos is not allowed. Direct links to such files will beremoved promptly and threads will be closed if it gets out of hand. Please keepsuch discussion segregated to private messages. If you're unsure whether or notsomething is a bootleg, here's a simple rule of thumb - if someone sitting inthe audience recorded it, it's a bootleg. Officially recorded aired ontelevision, radio, etc are perfectly acceptable. If you're still unsure, do nothesitate to contact a mod asking whether or not the audio/video you'd like topost is an illegal recording. This is both out of respect for MCR and any otherperformers, as well as to conform to all applicable copyright laws. 11. Becoming a Board Mod: If you are interested in applying for a board mod position (or suggesting another member), please PM the board Admin for more information.

Any threads about mods (ie suggestingmembers, bashing mods, etc) will be deleted. If you have concerns about theboards, either post them in the Help section or address it with anotheradmin/mod. 12. Respect BoardMods and Administrators Mods and Admins are only doing their jobs to enforce rules.They are volunteers that are passionate about the community and help it to run. Disrespect towards mods will not be tolerated.

  1. If only it were easy enough to do it state by state! It's very difficult when our states are so politically divided. I believe most people are able to get health insurance through their jobs. For example, the health insurance I have right now through my work is actually very good and affordable. But when you, for example, work several part time jobs, or are a contractor or freelancer, or work for a small business that can only provide limited options- that's when you get into the tricky grey area. My friend is a contract employee for a school district and freelances on the side. Obtaining health insurance has been very difficult for her since she's kind of a "non-traditional" employee. That's the type of situation ACA is supposed to cover :-/ but everything is difficult. My previous job was a small business as well, but they were able to offer health insurance, except it was expensive and provided limited coverage. So some people went to ACA since it was cheaper.
  2. Yeah i understand it is a little harder to implement because of our size and whatever... but still... the thing is too that many poorer people are able to get things like Medicaid, but when you're between dirt broke and comfortable, but you have a job, there's fewer options? If that makes sense. Because a lot of the social programs designed to help people only apply to those making less than a certain amount, but everything else is freaking expensive, so if you make too much for one and can't afford the other you're kind of screwed lol that's why I liked the ACA but i guess we'll see how things go.
  3. I don't have Obamacare right now, since I have insurance through my job. But it would be nice to have an *affordable* option. Luckily I don't have any severe health issues so I can probably get away with getting the most basic packages, I'm really hoping PP will survive if anything for all of my feminine needs. since this job I'm hoping to get is a small business, it would actually be more expensive if they offered any sort of health insurance- one of the hazards of going from a large organization (like the city government in my case!) to small. I'm hoping that if they offer me a job I will be able to negotiate a pay raise at least since it will be a big change. Yeah the US health insurance system makes no sense.
  4. Hey, I'm not much of a writer, but I love to read and I'm a pretty good editor when you get to that point! I'll be around for awhile probably haha i had a really good interview this morning that I'm excited about! It's with a small business right in the area I was looking for. The pay is equal to what I make now but it comes with more leadership opportunities. And I'm hoping my cost of living will go down once I move out of the city. The only downside is that it doesn't come with insurance :-/ which sucks since Obamacare seems to be on its way out. But I'm really excited about it. The people seem very cool, hardworking, and down to earth. I'll hear from them next week! I'm so ready to move on from my current job.
  5. Hey guys! Glad you are having a fun evening together!
  6. Yeah, I think because in the city the buildings are so close together, plus there are a lot of highways going through the city that people are traveling on.
  7. It was a quiet night in my apartment, but outside my apartment, the bars nearby were celebrating until about 3am!! Thankfully inside the city limits, there's a fireworks ban, but my parents' neighbors were setting off fireworks most of the night too. Any fun resolutions for you guys this year? I just want to be more disciplined with my health and career. I really need a new job.
  8. happy birthday, Brinn, and happy new year to everyone!! does anyone have any fun new year plans? It's looking like a quiet evening with my pets for me
  9. I got Sonia's card! I also love the "moose" haha. I usually use the automated postal thing since the line for the human is always so long. And then when you finally get there the person is usually grumpy. I'd rather just send my mail and get out as quick as possible!
  10. Merry Christmas! Have fun and be safe!
  11. I'm glad you got it Francesca! I was iffy about the international postage since I used the automated thing at the post office. Glad to know I did it right if I don't hear back I will probably enquirer after all the festivities, they said they were hoping to have an offer in for someone by New Years.
  12. It's been 3 days and I haven't heard any feedback or word about the position... just going to go ahead and guess that it's not in the cards for me. Oh well! I'm going to start looking in earnest closer to the time when my lease will be up.
  13. That is so awesome! I hope she does email you. What a cool experience to not only meet your childhood idol but have her ask about something you made!! So update on the job, I guess the first interview went better than I thought, since they emailed me back wanting to bring me back for a second... if I completed a project. It's been an incredibly busy week at my current job, since we were running a promotion all week, so I didn't get to it until last night (it was due today, I pulled an all-nighter and just sent it in ). I think I did okay, but I have never done a project like that before, so we'll see! The prompt was vague so I went with my best guess on what they wanted. I know I might not be as experienced as they might want for this position, but I think it is something I could learn and excel in, so hopefully they see that. But one of the big factors for me is that it is in my hometown, I miss living there so much! BTW I sent my holiday cards last week, hopefully they get there okay! Sulfur, I can still send you one if you'd like! Just PM me your address.
  14. I guess I associate advent calendars with a fun thing for families and children, since that's what they were for me growing up. But I see what you mean. The job is a marketing position at a natural pet food store chain in Houston. It's basically exactly what I'm looking for, the bonus being that the headquarters are in my hometown. I've been wanting to move back so I'm excited for this opportunity (not too excited... still trying to be realistic.)
  15. I have friends that have gotten various advent calendars and have been posting about them on social media but somehow I feel like getting one for myself in my one person apartment is kind of lonely :-/ I have a really exciting interview on Tuesday! Wish me luck, though I'm trying not to get my hopes up again haha
