Community description:Temp. Closed
Welcome to KAT-TUN Love, the biggest KAT-TUN community on LiveJournal. A six-member Japanese boy band, it was originally formed by Domoto Koichi in 2001 for backdancing purposes. However, due to the group’s growing popularity, KAT-TUN started to appear on TV shows (e.g. Shounen Club, Music Station) as a single group. At the end-of-the-year Johnny’s Countdown concert for 2005, KAT-TUN was the sole group who performed but had not yet debuted.

Finally, after six long years, KAT-TUN debuted on March 22nd, 2006. Their debut single managed to sell over 1 million in sales, and eventually became the #1 single of the year. They went on to release one more successful single and co-host a highly popular annual charity TV program.

However, in October 2006, one of their members, Akanishi Jin, decided to take a temporary hiatus from the group in order to further pursue studies in English. During his break, he stayed in Los Angeles and only met with the group once or twice briefly throughout the six months. Despite Akanishi’s absence, the group continued to work under “KAT-TUN” and ultimately released both a single and an album.

On April 19th, 2007, Akanishi returned to the group, and since then, the six-member group has released three singles and has performed in a musical (Kamenashi and Tanaka only). A year after Akanishi's return, their second album was finally announced. Called KAT-TUN Ⅲ -QUEEN OF PIRATES- (following the album name pattern from their second album, cartoon KAT-TUN II You), it will be released on June 4th, 2008, a little over a month over after their seventh single and just before their 2008 summer concert begins.
1. No bashing of any KAT-TUN members! This includes polls such as "Who's the best singer?", "Who is the best looking?", etc.

2. No bashing of any community members. No posting anything that can be considered racist, sexist, or otherwise derogatory (this includes comments). We have many people from different countries and/or cultures. Please respect that. Discrimination will lead to a ban from the community.

3. No excessive profanity. No porn (or anything remotely similar). No plagiarism. Do not repost fanworks (e.g. translations) without explicit permission.

4. No TROLLING! If any member is caught trolling, they will be banned immediately, and their name will be put on a list for other JE communities to watch out for.

5. Do not disable comments unless given permission from a mod. If you are caught with comments disabled, the post will be deleted automatically and you will be given a warning. Screening comments will only be allowed with permission by a moderator.

6. Regarding requests: Please see this post.

7. Regarding advertisements (e.g. LiveJournal communities, message boards, fansites etc.): Please see this post. Posts selling merchandise and other fan products go under a monthly cummulative post that is tagged under here.

8. Regarding LiveJournal cuts:
  • All images larger than 300px (in width) must be kept under the cut, as are all fanfics, scans, graphics, embedded videos, spoilers etc.
  • Only three images can be shown outside out of the cut, regardless if they are graphics or pictures.
  • A short profile of the fanfiction may be shown outside of the LJ cut.
9. Font sizes and/or colors should be left at the default setting. Not everyone likes to see hot pink font size+20 on their friends page. No StIcKy CaPs either. If your post has either of these things, your post will be deleted immediately.

10. Regarding fanfics: Please see this post.

11. Regarding tracker URLs (e.g. money-making links):
  • No tracker URLs are allowed unless they're for charity or for downloads. In the case of charity links, you must include valid proof that they're for charity.
  • If tracker sites are used, an original link (e.g. non-tracked) must be provided. It must also be explicitly said that links are from tracker sites.
12. Regarding friends locked posts: You can make a "friends locked" post to the community, but if you are posting a link to an entry in your personal journal or to another LJ community, that entry needs to be public. This is a fan community, not a popularity contest. Making people friend you or to join your community just so they can download something from you is rude. Don't do it. However, we will allow it if the linked post remains public for at least three days.

13. Member warning:
  • If someone who is not a mod tries to warn you that your post and/or comment is against the rules, do not give them a hard time. They're trying to help you. If you think they're lying, or that they're being an ass, feel free to contact a mod. We'll take care of it from there.
  • If you are trying to help warn a member about their post/comment, do not be rude about it. Try to keep it friendly, or at least polite. If the person you're trying to help is rude to you, do not respond to them. Tell a mod. We will handle it from there.
14. Once you have posted, please tag your post properly using the already given tags.

15. If you say in your post "If this is inappropriate, mods, please delete" or anything remotely similar, we will delete it. And without warning or notification. Saying that just goes to show you have not read the rules.
