Long Time No Speak

I've got to say, I was a bit disappointed when I flicked through the blogs and saw a couple of negative ones about the whole Gerard/twitter thing. I'm just gonna put my opinion right here.
 
The @MCRofficial account being closed
 
The band have no access to the account; it's run by the record company. It's very rarely used, in fact it's hacked into more frequently than it's used. Every band member has a personal twitter which is far more interesting, so I don't see why it's a big deal that it's closing. Good riddance!

Hey!

Hey guys! It's been a while since I posted! I've been checking up here every now and again to make sure things are running smoothly, but you guys don't need constant supervision. If there are ever any problems (spam, rule breaking, fights etc.), don't forget you can always message me here or on twitter (there's a link on my profile).
 
Anyway, me and Sam got a kitty :D We've named her Tali'Zorah, or Tali for short. Isn't she adorable?

Hi there newbies!

The unfortunate recent news has fortunately brought an influx of new members to this website. Welcome to MCR.com! May this tragedy bring us together as fans.

A few things you may find useful if you're new:

1. I'm one of four moderators on here, so if you ever have a problem with the site or think somebody has broken the rules, shoot me a message and I'll get back to you asap!

2. Please be sure to familiarise yourself with the rules on the right hand side. If you break the rules your blog will be edited or deleted, and you will have one strike against your name. As a general rule, three strikes will result in a ban.

3. When you post a blog, it takes a while for it to show up on the main community page. You only need to post it once for it to show up. If it does post more than once, you can delete the repeats by clicking on the blog, clicking "edit" underneath the title and then selecting "delete" at the bottom.

Conventional Weapons

I've seen a lot of people talk about illegally downloading the songs or ripping them off youtube. Please don't do this; there really is no excuse for it.
 
"But I don't have a record player!"
The songs will be available digitally on the day of their release.
 
"But I can't use iTunes!"
"But I don't have an iPod!"

It won't just be available through iTunes, but through Amazon and possibly other retailers too.
 
If you guys didn't catch the awesome interview Gerard, Becky Cloonan and Shaun Simon did at New York Comic Con, you should definitely watch it on youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fCYRSEiQb98). To get my earlier point across, here is an excerpt from the interview:

Concert FAQ

A lot of people on here have questions about gigs, and a while ago I compiled a list of information to form an FAQ. Whilst it was constructed with MCR in mind, it pretty much applies to any gig, so go ahead and read it!

-----

How early should I get to the venue?

This depends upon where you are sitting/standing. If you are sitting, your seat is already allocated so it is guaranteed no matter what time you arrive (as long as you're not super late). If you’re standing, you need to decide whether you aim to get to the barrier or not. If you don’t want to get to the barrier, then again, it’s not really that important when you arrive. However, if you do want to get to the barrier, it’s advisable to arrive as early as you safely can. Do not arrive late and then push and shove people to get to the barrier!

- How early

Rumours

DO NOT BELIEVE RUMOURS UNLESS THERE IS EVIDENCE TO PROVE THEY ARE TRUE!

Fact:
- There is concrete evidence to back up the statement (a picture, a link to the source you heard it from).
- It has been announced on from an official source. These include the band member's official twitter accounts or the @MCRofficial twitter, the news section of this website or said by a member of the band in a video.

Fiction:
- The rumour is vague.
- There is no evidence or official sources.
- Think about it logically. Where did this information come from? How did that person know? How would one random fan in a million get this inside information without other people hearing about it? And where would they get it from? Answer is simple: They didn't get it from anywhere other than their imagination.

Out of respect for the band, you should not spread rumours (and I'm not just talking about on this website).

IMCRD and Bullets Anniversary

Happy IMCRD and happy 10th birthday to Bullets!

I spent yesterday in London with MCR fans from all over the UK. The band sent loads of merch to raffle, sell and auction, which just goes to show how kind they are. One of the things they sent is the ghost diagram they held up during the Kerrang! Awards acceptance video, which sold for £250 ($388). We raised a total of £2012 for the SING It For Japan charity, so congrats to anybody who went!

*Repost* Enforcement of self harm rule

TL;DR: Posting about self harm is against the term and conditions which you agreed to when you signed up for the website. If you post about it, it will be deleted.

Hey Everyone!

It's the Mod Squad, popping in to give you guys a small reminder of the rules. We all know everybody hates spamming and hate posts, and we all know that we have to be excellent with each other and not post pictures of the bands family... but the most important rule is the "no self harm posts" rule.
