Ontd hbo the largest community, Why is ontd so popular?

Ontd hbo : Oh No They Didn’t, also known as ONTD, is the largest community on LiveJournal with over 100,000 members. The community focuses on celebrity gossip and pop culture with most of its posts aggregated from other gossip blogs. The site formed a partnership with pop culture blog network Buzz Media in July 2010 that was not renewed a year later.

The blog boasted over 300,000 page views daily according to a 2008 Popmatters article, although it has considerably decreased in recent years. When LiveJournal increased the comment limit on posts from 5000 to 10,000 comments, ONTD contained the first post to reach this new limit.

About LiveJournal

In January 2009, ONTD became the first LiveJournal community to surpass 16,777,216 comments. This crossed LiveJournal’s previously undisclosed limit on comments. This resulted in about a week’s time left for the community,

While LiveJournal worked to fix the issue. A second community, ONDT, was created and members posted and commented until the issue was decided.

On June 25, 2009, following the death of Michael Jackson, he was suspended Oh No Way due to an explosion in use.

The amount of traffic the community received brought down all of LiveJournal’s servers, resulting in downtime for the entire domain.

During this time, the members temporarily moved to ONDT once again.

On January 18, 2012, Oh No Way did not black out for 12 hours in protest against SOPA.

The decision was left to users who voted in support of the site’s blackout.

========================================
PLEASE READ BEFORE JOINING OR POSTING:

This community revolves around celebrities, movies, TV shows, music, video games, and other forms of entertainment.

Oh No They Didn’t is a community that welcomes anyone regardless of their identity. Discrimination of any kind, including but not limited to: mental health status, ableism, racism, homophobia, anti Semitism, sexism, and transphobia, are not allowed. Opposing discourse stops being discourse the moment personal attacks and derogatory language are used.

On the topic of transphobia, offenses include but is not limited to: purposely misgendering when you know their preferred pronouns, or speaking of SRS in vulgar/crude terms in order to shock or offend.

Someone calling you “stupid” or “gross” isn’t what we consider a major personal attack. Please report only actual substantial and truly offensive personal attacks. Serious personal attacks include saying “f-ck you” / “f-ck off” to someone, using insulting and pejorative language directly toward them, or threatening someone with physical/sexual violence.

Constant trolling will result in being banned.

You can be reasonably critical of the celebrities these posts are about, but serious personal attacks are frowned upon. If you’re constantly using slurs and offensive language toward a celebrity, or if you’re simply being misogynistic, you may get a warning (at the very least) to tone it down.

Rather than ask “Who?” when you see a celebrity you don’t recognize, use Google.

 Mods decide what gets posted – not you.

Sometimes mods accidentally approve posts that have already been posted. No need for a flood of “posted” comments. We’ll take care of it if the OP doesn’t delete the post themselves. Posting different information from an article that has been posted already is considered a repost. Either delete it yourself or we will.

Use good judgment when you’re choosing or making an icon. No nudity, offensive images, or bigotry. Someone may end up reporting your offensive icon to Livejournal.

No off-topic (OT) comments in regular posts. We have ONTD Roundups at least five times a week, and two Free For All posts during the weekend – save your OT comments for those posts.

New membership is moderated. Your journal must show some past activity or at least have a filled-out profile before being accepted.

OTHER RULES TO BE AWARE OF Ontd hbo :

  • Don’t spam stuff in the comments, especially photos, gifs, or tweets/Insta posts. Or use a spoiler cut to save users from scrolling.
  • No advertising.
  • Limit the use of gifs in your post. More than 20 big gifs will slow down browsers or eat up bandwidth. Maybe put a warning if your post has a lot of gifs so that those on mobile browsers don’t use up all of their data.
  • Don’t delete/freeze comments in your own post. You can be banned for this.
  • If you are frequently deleting your own posts for whatever reason (not counting posts that include news already posted), you may have your posting privileges suspended.
  • Trolls will be banned. Ban evaders will be banned (unless there is some exception unique to their situation).
  • No posting of pornographic images, even it’s manipulated/Photoshopped. There is a “film – adult” tag for news about porn, but it is up to the discretion of the mods on whether or not the post is acceptable. Even in posts about porn, there should be no posting of pornographic images.
  • You may only have one username in ONTD at a time. If we find out you have more than one LJ username account here, at the very least, you will be asked to choose only one of your accounts and then remove the others from ONTD.
  • Don’t post pirated copies of books, music, movie/TV downloads, etc..
  • Don’t include long winded personal thoughts at the end of your post. Save it for the comment section.
