Just a note for while the boards are offline. If you have questions/queries/submissions for the Secret Santa then send them along to kerryaod@yahoo.co.uk and I'll answer/save everything there :) Thanks guys!

Make sure to put in the subject title Secret Santa: and insert Question/Query/Submission so I don't accidentally pass over it :) Thanks!

 
 
 
Hello dear House Boards members! During the two weeks long downtime we'll be using our livejournal community to provide you a place to discuss the episodes etc. However, these are special circumstances, which need special rules. (Below.) Please read them carefully and stick to them! Don't worry if you don't have a livejournal account, anonymous commenting is allowed, so everyone can take part of the discussion. :)

RULES:
  • All general House M.D. Boards rules apply here too. Let me emphasize that these include the following: no member/actor/character bashing is allowed. Please state your opinion in a way that it doesn't hurt those who may disagree.
  • Livejournal doesn't have spoiler tags, therefore we have to ask you to keep from talking about any kind of spoilers for the upcoming episodes.
  • This is important! Please include your HMDB username somewhere in your comment, either in the title or just put it at the end of your comment. This way others will know who they're talking to.  Anonymous comments without your username will be deleted.
LJ USAGE GUIDE:
For those who are unfamiliar with the way livejournal works, here's a little help. Livejournal comments are HTML formatted and you need to be familiar with the codes if you want to quote, or put links to the text.
  • The usual way of quoting is to use italic text. <i>write what you want to quote here</i>
  • Links. <a href="link here">text</a>
Now onto the discussion.

Note that this post will only be open for discussion while HMDB is down, as soon as it reopens comments here will be frozen and the discussion moves back to the boards.
