A Study of Gothic Subculture

an Inside Look for Outsiders

Posting Access:
Anybody , Moderated
Since I haven't added new profiles to the site or updated old ones in a long time, I thought this might be an interesting way to keep up with everyone. Fill out this survey and post a few pictures of yourself, share your ideas on goth or the Study of Gothic Subculture website. Much like the message board, this community exists as an addendum to the site. Goths can share their views about the culture here, but this community is not intended for general socializing or "Is x gothic?" questions. There are many other forums on the net for this. The community serves the same purpose as the site: to comprehensively and realistically examine the gothic subculture; to educate non-Goths about it; and to promote tolerance by eliminating some common misconceptions.

  • Fill out a survey with a picture or two of yourself as an introduction to the group.
  • Share your thoughts about Goth (if you are one) or ask questions (if you aren't).
  • Treat everyone with courtesy and respect.
  • Use the <lj-cut> tag for long posts or pictures.

  • Post quiz results or other memes
  • Bash any group -- religion, nation, sexuality, race, etc.
  • Respond to inflammatory messages that are intended to provoke an argument
  • Post in all caps
  • Flame or insult others

    This community is currently unmoderated, but it will be moderated if the need arises.


    This survey differs slightly from the one on the site, so fill it out again even if you have done it before. Only fill out the information you feel comfortable providing. Remember anyone can view this info once you post it. Please be thorough and detailed in your answers.
