Blatantly stealing the idea of "vintage meat" from the community of the same name (vintage_meat), I've decided to create a claims community that allows you to claim those individuals who are indeed vintage. Like a fine wine, they only get better with age.
Rules! Please Read Before Joining!
+ Limit of two (2) claims per user. I find out that you created another username just to claim stuff, you're out and your claims are up for grabs.
+ Only one user/claim. No sharing. Had problems with this in the past. All current shares still valid, but no new claims with shares will be allowed. No fighting, flaming, bitching, et cetera. Fight once, you're out, the rules are your first and only warning.
+ You can change your claims ONCE. Post in the journal to notify me of the change. Once the claims are changed on the list, there is no going back, and your previous claims will be up for grabs.
+ "Vintage" is defined as follows: Any person, living or dead, whom at the time of the post, is at least 40 years of age. I'm going for people only, preferrably famous ones (actors, actresses, authors, singers, etc).
+ I'll try to update the claims list monthly, but always check both the list and the most recent entries to avoid overlaps.
+ To insure that you read these rules, please put the phrase "like a fine wine" in the subject of your claim.
+ I can't stress enough that this is just for fun. By posting claims here, you have no real claim over any person, place, thing, event, other noun/verb/adjective/part of speech that you claim here.
+ All warnings are included in this post. Patience with those who don't read the rules is nearly non-existant. If you do not check the claims list and the most recent posts before posting your own claim, your post will be deleted, and the claim not honoured, with no comment. A second incorrect claim post will result in being banned from the community. If you have a question, just ask. As long as you've checked the most recent claims list, I will be willing to double-check the availablity of a claim for you.
+ I'm sure other stuff will come up, and the rules will be adjusted to meet those needs.
+ You can always visit our sister community, classics_claims, if you find your claim has already been staked.
