Be Nice, Be Respectful.
This is the principle upon which the Blacklist Support Group was founded, and which sets us apart.
Do I need a Google account?
Although you may be asked if you have a Google account or email, it is not required.
How do I leave a comment with my user name?
Click on the comments at the bottom of the comments. Choose Name/URL and enter your screen name, or sign into your gmail/Google account if you have one. URL is not required. Comments will appear in a separate window. If you click on Jump To Comment, it will take you to the bottom of the list of comments.
Can I post anonymously?
No. Anonymity is not permitted. You must have a user name, but it does not need to be your real name. Consistently using the same user name contributes to the formation of a community, and allows others to follow your comments. Anonymity erodes a strong community and invites trolls. Internet trolls (people who make very controversial or inappropriate comments to incite an argument or reaction) do so by hiding behind anonymity. If you accidentally post something anonymous, just make another post letting us know it was you and we'll keep it up.Please consistently use the same user name for all of your comments. Anonymous comments will be deleted unless the user lets us know within a reasonable amount of time.
Are my comments monitored for content?
We encourage free expression, regardless of viewpoint, but require that such expressions be respectful of other commenters and to the personnel involved with the production of the program, and relevant to the topics on which they are posted. We do, however, reserve the right to remove any comment for any reason.
In particular, you may not submit a comment that is abusive, defamatory, disrespectful, illegal, offensive or disparaging (whether on the basis of disability, ethnicity, gender, nationality, race, religion, sexual orientation, traits with which people are born, politics, or otherwise) to any other commenter or actor/producer/writer/personnel involved with show.
You also may not submit a comment that attacks or threatens another person, threatens or promotes violence, wishes for harm to befall another person, invades another person's privacy or proprietary rights, or uses expletives (including veiled profanity).
You may not stalk or harass another person, dominate the conversation, discourage participation by others, or mock, bait, bicker, taunt, or belittle others.
We do not allow shipping on the Blacklist Support Group. Shipping is a term (derived from relationship) created by the fandom to express the desire for characters to form a romantic relationship. It is a component of fan fiction, which is not a part of our site. In particular, the idea that there is a romantic relationship between Liz and Red is a dead theory. It has been well established, repeatedly, that Red is a father figure, or possibly father, to Liz. Therefore, to suggest that there is a romantic relationship between them hints at incest and is completely unacceptable at BSG. There are numerous other internet sites that allow and/or are dedicated to shipping and fan fiction.
Our Spoiler Policy Has Changed 4/21/2016
We are no longer using spoiler tags/alerts/warnings, and are now allowing spoiler conversation on any page of the forum. The current (Ye Olde Blacklist Spoiler Page) has been archived, meaning it is still available to read, but it will be closed to further comments. A new spoiler page (Le Nouveau Blacklist Spoiler Page) has been created to serve, first and foremost, as a reference. The top of the page will always contain the most current vital statistics on upcoming episodes: date, episode name and number, synopsis, preview/spoiler photos and videos, and/or links to photos and videos. BSG members can add their own links in comments or discuss spoilers there, on the episode discussion pages, or any other page.
We feel that the vast majority of our members are reading the spoilers anyway, so avoiding them is no longer a priority. At this point, it feels as though the spoiler page has become a hindrance to discussion as we have to jump back and forth among multiple topic pages. The result is repeated comments, broken continuity, and a greater number of comments to be read. We apologize if this disappoints any of our members/readers, but we feel this new policy best serves our community.
I think one of my comments was deleted, what do I do?
Most likely, your comment was deleted in error or it was posted anonymously. There are very few reasons a post would be deleted intentionally. Read above at Are my comments monitored for content? If you believe one of your posts was incorrectly deleted, please post a message below.

How do I get an avatar/profile picture?
To create an avatar, you must be signed in with a Google account/email. Once you are signed in, go to Blogger and open up your Blogger profile. That's where you upload a photo or image which will appear when you post your comments here at the Blacklist Support Group.
The comment section below this post allows for you to ask questions regarding the how-tos of this site. How do I leave a comment? Where does my comment belong? How do links work? That kind of thing. The Blacklist Support Group has three administrators who will be alert to questions that arise on this page.
