Let's go on the assumption that everyone that gets into this group is going to be as obsessed with Evanescence/Amy Lee as I am myself. That would be pretty hardcore, right? You should see how I act in real-life! But more than that, I know all the songs and all the lyrics and own them all and have a ton of pix and websites, etc.Last time I checked, people like me are not the only people who will try&apply (for membership). Since none have yet I can't rightfully say. HOWEVER, let's be realistic! If I was to be that close-minded I'd be sucking all the fun out of Not Another Evanescence Community!. At least in my opinion. People should come here and join if they like Evanescence and want to know/learn more! (...Maybe that's just my friend/member-whorishness speaking...)So, as I was saying, since we are NOT going to be so limiting ("we" being the royal-we, being me) we need to be fair to those...less insane than some of the rest of us (when it comes to Evanescence, anyway). This post shall cover their albums and songs, as well as some websites I know. (When I get some more members up in here we'll add more websites.

These are going to be, at least at first, real basic. Real simple stuff, most of which goes without saying. Upon suggestion and depending on necessity, I will edit them.1. Respect the opinions and thoughts of others, despite what you may think to the contrary. If you disagree, express yourself politely. And never look down on others. You shouldn't anywhere, least of all here. Preps, goths, whatever. We are all equal as long as I'm "in charge".2. Love Evanescence. Do not come in here and start dissing the band. Why would you be here if you didn't like them? That's just dumb.3. Don't curse just to curse. Language is something I definitely do not have a problem with, but overusing it just makes a person seem ill-educated and obnoxious.4. Use good judgement. If I have to explain this one don't even bother joining.5. No OvErUsE oF sTiCkY cApS. wHiLe ThEy CaN bE fUn, ThEy CaN aLsO bE a PaIn In ThE aSs To ToLeRaTe. ThAnK yOu.6. Comment! Don't keep things to yourself!!7. If you know something, share it! We love that sort of stuff! This is an Evanescence Community! The more the merrier!8. Use proper grammar and good spelling. If you're not great with that stuff, that's fine, but if it's really bad, use the spell check feature. As for grammar...you know about periods and capitalization, right?9. I am not perfect, so please, don't give me a hard time, no matter how loserish or slow I can be. Contribute to the group, help me out, make suggestions...but don't be cruel or condescending. It's bad enough I deal with that shit in my own self, aight?10. Never. Be. Afraid. To voice your own opinions, to share your experiences, to make suggestions, whatever. That's not what we are about.11. Do not post new entries if an old entry already addresses the exact same topic. (I don't see us growing that big, do you? I didn't think so. And if we do, I can modify my own durn rules, mwahaha.)12. Make all posts "Friends Only". Only the first three entries (created by me) should be "Public".13. Read the first three entries before doing anything else (preferrably, even before joining).(((Note: I have a tendency to focus on Amy Lee and not the rest of the band...I don't mean to, but I'll be the first one to admit I'm horribly biased. If it gets annoying or too out-of-control, let me know. Chances are if it gets that bad I need to notice and make some changes. I focus on the star of the show, I'm sorry. I LOVE EVERYONE ELSE TOO YOU KNOW! At least I'm not focusing on myself!...as one-mindedly as I used to. *sweatdrop*)))
As the very first member, I shall be the first to introduce myself. As others join they can follow suit BY COMMENTING ON THIS ENTRY.The way is simple. Telling the community a bit about yourself!Name: Mira AngelNickname(s): MiraAge: 16Birthday: 2/24/91Gender: FemaleHow long have you been an Evanescence Fan?: Since 6th grade. So...4 years. (Seems like longer in such a good way!)Ever been to an Evanescence concert?: As of right now, no. (I plan on remedying that in the future, however.)What would you do to meet Amy Lee?: ANYTHING!!!!!!If you were to ever meet Amy Lee, what would be your initial reaction?: Death.Explain your love for Evanescence/Amy Lee as best as you can.: Evanescence is my support, Amy Lee my inspiration. Beautiful music, meaningful lyrics, wonderful morals. I identify and know by heart all their songs, and do/have identified with each and every single one. Without them I would not be who I am today, if I was to even exist! Amy Lee is my own personal goddess, so easy to look up to and admire. I love them!!! (There, I scrachted the surface :P :D).How many Evanescence songs/pix do you own?: All the songs and going on 300 pix. (Sorry, I can't help but brag ^___^;).How about merchandise?: I got an Evanescence "The Open Door" store-bought tee, as well as two homemade ones with Amy Lee on them.Do you have a favorite/least favorite Evanescence song/album?: No. What I favor depends on my mood/state of mind.Even if you don't, tell me some of them.: Going Under, Bring Me To Life, Everybody's Fool, My Immortal, Haunted, Tourniquet, Imaginary, Taking Over Me, Hello, My Last Breath, Whisper, Sweet Sacrifice, Weight Of The World, Lithium, Cloud Nine, Snow White Queen, Lacrymosa, The Only One, Your Star...and those are just off the albums!How did you react when "The Open Door" came out?: I was so excited that day! i had a meeting to go to afterschool, and from there a friend of mine and myself were to be picked up by my father and shuttled over to the mall...She had an anime DVD to get she was DYING for, since it was her favorite anime way back when...Well my father said that I never asked him, so he wouldn't take me. I nearly cried. I was so pissed!!! But then I sugared my way into getting my other friends to ask their mom, who is the nicest thing ever!!! So we stayed waaay late at the school and went to the mall. I bought it and was obsessed over it on the way home. Just ask them -- it was a total goober moment. (Then, once home, I made listening to and discovering the lyrics a religious ceremony and listened to them nonstop for about a week, memorizing it all quickly.) (P.S.: Before that, I found this thing on the album from an interview or something with Amy Lee that explained the songs. I color-coded it, printed it out, and worshipped that for about a month before it was released, keeping count of the days in a most annoying manner.)Anything else you'd like to add?: I love using lil' smilies (:D X3 <3) and swearing (I'll try to keep it down in here, just in case). I am an authoress into a hella lot of stuff, let's not get into that, and in fact there's so much I could say that I'll refrain from saying anything (more) at all!...Except sorry for the obnoxious length of the above >______< and that those were too many damn questions...
Here is a very basic overview of my very first community...the 5 W's:~Who is this community for? Those who love Evanescence's sound (overall), voice (Amy Lee), lyrics (songs), values (no sex appeal, originality, etc), backbone (the band members), message (be true to yourself, be what you want to be, etc), instrumentals (raw music), look (gothic, punk, etc), feel (dark yet uplifting, meaningful), and general awesomeness (what's not to love?). ~What shall these people do in this community? We (since this all includes me!) shall post topics about this band. Why we love them, what got us into them, what about them draws them to us, how they have affected our lives, favorite songs, favorite albums, tours, Amy Lee, news, quotes, cool facts, other websites, etc.~Where can we meet others of our kind and go to as well as here? In other communities like our own! There are so many, some better than others. We should spread the love and absorb much of it as we can!~When can we start posting and sharing? At any time! I will approve those people I know for a fact are good for the group, and those that I do not know personally I shall research as thoroughly as I can. I prefer people who spell decently, use okay grammar, and are in general understandable. Illiteracy, chatspeak, and other such nonsense is not something I am fond of and as the Founder of this here community I do not have to tolerate it. (Not to exclude smilies, slang, and some net-abbreviations [i.e. "lol"]; sticky caps are also fun, on occasion -- everything in moderation).~Why did I create this community in the first place? I, Mira, created this community for a reason both simple and rather obvious. Evanescence is my favorite band in the world! Amy Lee is an immense inspiration to me and the music as helped me through a lot in my life, such as recent tough times. Not Another Evanescence Community! is my expression of personal obsession where I hope to meet others like myself and provide them with a place to share all that they feel along with me. Heck, perhaps this place won't even be strictly tied to Evanescence and Evanescence only! Perhaps we'll share past experiences and the rest, in accordance with this, my/our favorite band.
