Who can join us?
The membership of this community is monitored not because we want to discriminate but because the entries are all member-locked in order to save unknowing male Arsenal fans from the fangirl world and to keep haters from intruding. Also, the community is open for discussions and such so if the content of those discussions would ever offend fans of another team, we wouldn't want them to come upon it, right?
Anyone who is an Arsenal fan is free to join! Once you've clicked the link, a notification will be sent to one of the mods and the only things we'll be checking for is that you are first and foremost a female Arsenal fan. We understand that many of our members are also fans of other teams but this community is for those whose FIRST choice team is Arsenal.
Once you have been sent the approval e-mail through livejournal, feel free to join, post and discuss! We're all here to have fun!

What can you post?
There are scheduled daily and weekly posts from all mods of the community, as well as our famous Arsespam and Post Match Discussions.
All members are granted posting access so we allow posts containing discussions, picspams, fics and the like.
News however, should be left to the mods as we do have a daily news update which should cover everything in the lastest 24 hours. Mods are also in charge of a weekly newsletter, collecting information from all the affiliated player communities so please refrain from cross-posting between this community and the individual player communities.

What can't you post?
We ask that you PLEASE DO NOT make a single entry promoting a new community you made. Even if it's a community related to Arsenal or one of its players, we ask that you at the very least make a picspam or include a video in your post and at the end include a link to your community. Posts that contain nothing except an ad for a community will be deleted after address by one of the MODs.
Also, PLEASE DO NOT make posts asking LJ technical questions such as how to make an lj-cut. These will be deleted after warning as well.

Monday - Sunday: Daily News Update
Monday: Player/Legend of the Week!
Tuesday: Video of the Week!
Wednesday: Weekly Discussion!
Thursday: Gunner Moment of the Week!
Friday: Topic Picspam!
Saturday: Gunnergirl Interview!
Sunday: Weekly Newsletter!
We also post: Match Predictions, Post-Match Discussions, and the all-famous Arse-spam!

All in all, this is supposed to be a happy and enjoyable environment for everyone so please be considerate towards one another, that's the only rule we've really got!
We're here to band together in the solidarity of being female Gunners! (:

If you've got any questions, please leave it as a comment in this post and it will be addressed right away by one of the MOD staff!

Hello, sorry to be such a twat, but I don't think it's very appropriate for our comm to be titled Gunnergirls United. Don't want other people thinking we have allegiances to other teams, do we? ;) We can have something like Gunnergirls: manlier than our team. Or something. *lame*

Sorry Haley, I had the same thought. Maybe hello, hello, we are the Arsenal girls like the song. Or something! *g*

But I'm really glad to see this up and running, and it looks really professional and well organised. You've done a great job.

Aw, thanks Zara!

Okay I'll change it to that then. I didn't really have any great ideas in minddd.

I have one question: as someone who is modemically challenged going online, I'd rather like to know in advance what is being set up. Can one of the mods set something in my account so that I might get an alert whenever a new topic is posted? That would save me time and money. And it works well on other communities.

If it's impossible, don't worry. I don't want to be a pain in the neck.

Thanks to all of you for building up this community. A great idea for us lasses! Kudos to you all!

Umm, I'm not 100% sure what you're asking but I think you mean if you could be notified when something new is posted in the community right?
Well, you could always see the community updates on your friends page, it will automatically come up but if you mean you won't be coming online at all until there's something posted in the community, then I don't think you could be notified all the time because we post every day as you can see from our posting schedule above.

Sorry I could't be of further help :S

Sorry to butt in, but maybe this is what you're looking for?
And check the box:
Notify me when: Someone posts a new entry to gunnergirls

Hope that helps! =]

That's it! Thank you so much!! I don't know why this managed to escape my eyes all the time!

Hi I have a question!!!

You know those picspam posts after each match? Are they always taken down when the next match comes on? I just noticed cos I added one of them to memories and now it says no such entry and I've noticed the pictures from past matches are gone.

Thanks guys :) You do a great job here.

<3 Whit

Hey, I don't post the match pictures myself and although I think any MOD could delete any posts within the community, most of the time I think Rose (_meandthemajor) does it.
I didn't realize that they were being deleted but maybe she's deleting them after a while? I'm not completely sure, sorry about that! :S
but I'll be sure to ask for you some time and see who's been deleting these posts and why.

Hey, I know a few sets of match photos were deleted because I changed the names on some of the albums in my photobucket account. I haven't gone through all of them yet to make sure they're still there.

Which match did you save to your memories, because I will fix that one first :)

I am so incredibly sorry that I am replying this question about five months later. I mustn't have gotten a notification from LJ or I must have forgotten about it.
I know that you are most likely not interested in posting it anymore but you are absolutely welcome to and please by all means post it if you still want to!
Again, I'm REALLY sorry and I know replying to this comment now doesn't do much good but I didn't want to leave it unanswered.

I'm so incredibly sorry that I am replying this question about five months later! I musn't have gotten a notification from LJ or if I did then I forgot about it and it's entirely my fault.
I know replying this now isn't much good but I didn't want to leave this unanswered.
If you still want to, please by all means use this community to find some other Australian female fans! But I ask that you don't just make a post asking Australian members to reply or friend you. If anything please include a post with something like a video or picspam and add at the end that you're looking for other Australian female gunner fans.

Sorry again for replying this so late!
