Using the LJ-cut feature

If you don't know what the LJ-cut feature is, than you ought to look at the LJ facts page, here.

If you are posting more than one or two pictures (or a very large sized picture over 500 pixels), it is courtesy to use the LJ-cut in order to prevent killing your friends' friend-pages. This doesn't just apply to picture posting; but to lengthy posts that go on for forever plus a decade.

There are also other situations, which warrant the use of an LJ-cut. If you are posting something that you know might be offensive to some on your friends-list, a cut is a common courtesy. It gives them the ability to read it if they choose to. They must intentionally click the link to read it, rather than just nonchalantly bumping into a picture or article that they might not take to. Another option would be to create a custom friends group; but we will look into that at a later date.

Hi. :) I found this LJ comm while surfing the interests page. Posting about LJ etiquette is a pretty good idea. I know more than a few people who can benefit from this. I'll be adding this comm to my friends list. :D

Alright! Yeah, I witnessed some drama on my friends-page earlier this week, and got the idea to create an LJ-etiquette page.
