Chatter Post

Cabin Pressure Chatter Post One

Please see the most recent MOD NOTE and ADDENDUM

(updated 5 July)

Good evening ladies and gentlemen (and good day to you too, inhabitants of the other side of the world). As always - this isn't a captain speaking but I come bearing news nonetheless.

It has been brought to my attention today(/night) by our good friend OxfordTweed, that a Chatter Post might work quite well for our fandom.

I'm inclined to agree with him.

As such, here you have a brand-spanking-new post to chatter, Brit-pick, ask questions, debate, gossip, gush and generally indulge in any fannish activity that does not fall under the category of posting or filling prompts. I hope you all enjoy it

The usual guidelines apply, but mostly:

-  Please be respectful to one another.

-  Don't bash other (non)anon's comments/questions/ideas/etc.

-  Have fun

Now go forth, chat amongst yourselves and enjoy. I am of course on stand, so if any problems arise, feel free to drop me a line.

And if you stumble across any plot bunnies here, please just drop them off home at the Prompt-Post, the rest of the herd will be overjoyed to meet them.

Or as they say in Limerick

It's been brought to my attention we are needing
A place for discussion, not reading
I hope this post will do
I'll leave the rest to you
And Beware of the plot bunnies breeding

Sorry if the poem is rubbish - I literally haven't written one since grade five.


According to numerous Child Safety laws it is illegal to provide pornographic material to minors. Seeing that the majority of the stuff we have here is rather adult in nature, this Meme is consequently an 18+ zone. Failing to comply to this rule could result in the Meme getting shut down. So if you're here and you're under 18 please back button now.

Please do not post anything regarding minors in a sexual situation. It really doesn't matter how tasteful or crass it is, there are laws that classify that sort of thing as child pornography and as such, I'm afraid we're going to have to go with the attitude that safe is better than sorry.

It really is VERY important that these rules are upheld as the consequences are severe.

Other than that - go crazy guys. Any problems please just message me and I'll try my best to work it out.

Genuine Question:

What happens when ignoring doesn't work? I've seen writers go on writing sprees over in other fandoms, hijacking prompts left, right and centre. Ignoring didn't help, they just carried on and ruined people's prompts. Fillers were put off doing second fills because of backlash from the original filler, and prompters were put off re-prompting.

There comes a point where you can't just passively make a rule and hope everyone will follow it. Chances are, the person who causes these rules to be made don't realise they're the reaosn. At some point, you as the mod have to actually point your finger and tell them to stop, and ban them if you have to. Coming from us will either be ignored, be classed as troll comments or bullying.

At the very least, it protects the com and keeps it active, because worse case scenario if you-know-what continues to happen, most people will leave and the ones remaining will ask "What happened to the good days?"

Different anon, I just want to say that out of all anon memes I've participated in, this one definitely has the best mod and the highest level or organization. Thank you for all your work ♥

Let us all ask ourselves, what would Finnemore do?

Hard the be precise because I think I must have missed whatever drama prompted this (I assume posts have been deleted), so I'm not sure what's going on, but anyway... Whatever it was, he would smile and say something polite, tactful but quietly to the point.
