About first_dwellings:

This is a community started by two people who are experiencing first time living on their own. We reside in the Pittsburgh area, thus the community mostly caters to that - however, we will try to incorporate as much help as we possibly can to people in other areas. We were interested in creating this community mainly because we were never given full information about how to do apartment searching, what to look for, where to get resources, etc. etc. etc. and so on and so forth.

Thus, we decided that we wanted to be as helpful for those people freshly starting out, as we are, and also give them a chance to help each other. We will answer as many questions as we possibly can, keep the memories and links and helpful communities list updated regularly to help you as much as possible, and we will try our best to keep this community fun and lively! For as much as we will try, we also need your help as members of the community. So stay active, and remember - you're helping others as much as others are helping you, ourselves included!

Community Rules:

  • This is a community to help others. If you don't have any helpful advice, don't respond to someone's post.

  • When posting, please be kind to your readers - internet speak, 1337 speak, slang, or anything that is not plain English will not be tolerated. This goes for "alternative" spellings and "tYpInG lIkE tHiS" as well.

  • No flame wars, please! If you do not like something someone said, simply ignore it. If it bothers you that much, tell one of the moderators.

  • Anonymous comments will be screened. To save yourself the time and trouble, just log in.

  • Please search memories before posting. This will ensure that we only get questions once, and your question may have already been answered. Repeat questions will be deleted.

  • Please use cuts for large pictures, multiple pictures, and long posts. If you don't know how, the lj FAQ will answer that for you.

  • HAVE FUN! This is a helpful community intended to give you ideas, tips, and advice. It is also a place where you can share your ideas and experiences with others.
