The Easy Company Stamping Community

We Stand Alone Together

Posting Access:
All Members , Moderated


This is a stamping community dedicated to the HBO miniseries, 'Band of Brothers', the book by Stephen E. Ambrose, and of course the incredible men who fought in Easy Company during World War II. Since we're a fan community first and foremost, it's expected that we draw our opinions from the impressions we get watching the series or reading the book. But the question must be burning in your mind: which Easy Company solider am I most like? Well, we're here to help you find out. Also, as a supplement to stamped members, we offer a Matchmaking Survey, in which other members of the community vote on your best love-match in the Company. So, welcome, and don't get hurt.

{ | STAMPED MEMBERS LIST - Updated 04 April 2007

{00 | It should be rather obvious, but please be polite and keep things on the level. If any arguments break out or fellow members are disrespected, we'll be right here to provide disciplinary action.
{01 | Feel free to advertise other stamping or 'Band of Brothers' related communities. Links back to this community are always appreciated in return.
{02 | You will receive your "jump wings" (or rather, stamping will occur) at Officer's discretion. The most annoying thing about some stamping communities is waiting three weeks to get stamped. We can't place en exact number of votes or an exact date on things, but currently the scheme that seems nice is as follows: fifteen votes on an application or eight concurrent votes for the same character before we stamp. Then, when your alter-ego has been sufficiently decided, you'll be rewarded with a lovely stamp to display proudly.
{03 | Did I mention that flames are considered contraband and will result in immediate dismissal? Have I made myself clear?
{04 | Posting is limited to Applications and Moderator Announcements (tagged as "Officer's Post"s) only. :-)
{05 | Perhaps most importantly, we stand alone together. Just because you're one of us doesn't mean you leave us behind. Keep voting, and keep joining in on any discussions!

{01 | LJ-cut all pictures; try to LJ-cut all surveys (they can get rather bulky)
{02 | Bold the question part of the survey to make for easier reading.
{03 | The subject line of your application must include the line "Flies spread disease, so keep yours closed!"...just to make sure you've read the rules and everything. We'd hate to find that you haven't read the rules, now wouldn't we?
{04 | You are allowed one re-up, or re-application. Please wait at least a week after you're stamped to post a new survey. You may not have a re-up unless you are active in rating. In otherwords, don't be a useless replacement.
{05 | A picture is not REQUIRED to apply. We'd like it, of course, since photos can show a lot about a personality, but guidelines will now offer you the option to simply describe your "look".
{06 | We will not stamp anyone who doesn't follow the rules.
{07| Once you've been stamped, feel free to also apply for your Easy Match Stamp - you can find the rules and regs on that one HERE! But remember - that's only once you're stamped!

{01 | You must have completed the original survey and have your stamp to apply for the Match Survey.
{02 | All of the rules on the regular survey apply. Please read them (above) carefully.
{03 | Bold the question part of the survey to make for easier reading.
{04 | The subject line of your application must include the line "Hinkle sweetie, I'm home!"...just to make sure you've read the rules and everything. Again, we wouldn't want to find that you haven't read the rules, now wouldn't we?

{01 | Bold your votes. Otherwise they may not be counted.
{02 | Vote for one character only. If you want to mention more than one character, that's great - it lets us know you were really thinking about it - but only bold one.
{03 | You don't have to be stamped to rate (but you should be stamped before posting other, non-application-related, material).
{04 | Please rate other people. Each week resident Intelligence Officer Shadow will provide recon on which applications still need votes, and hopefully that won't need to happen that often. So please rate other applicants.
{05 | Only soldiers of Easy Company that were featured in the HBO miniseries will be acceptable votes. For the most part, this makes it easier to create stamps. Secondly, most members will not have read the book. This is all in the spirit of fun and love for the show, so by all means, have fun.
{06 | Try to rate someone as a soldier they're familiar with, unless you think there's someone that they're an absolutely perfect match for. Remember, there are a LOT to choose from, so it's probably best to go with gut instinct based on applications. But if someone is a perfect match, explain why! Votes are always more fun to receive when someone's actually told you WHY you're like that person.
{07 | Please don't vote on surveys that don't follow all the rules. An Officer (or Mod, as you LJ folk call us) will be swift to point this out.
