Aiya They Didn"t!
Aiya They Didn't is the Chinese version of ONTD and as such is dedicated to the sharing of entertainment and cultural news from the Sinosphere. This includes Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and any other major Chinese-speaking/influenced area. Anything falling under the umbrella of media or pop culture or celebrities is fair game. General news and politics are only occasionally posted.

If you run an Asian or Chinese related community, and would like to affiliate, please PM evilcoc0nut and we will add you to the profile.

AYTD on Twitter and Last FM.

★ Check tags and/or the custom Google search bar at the end of the profile to see if your article has been posted.
★ All posts must include a source link, must be in English. Either from a translated source or of your own accurate translation. We will not accept "translated" posts put through online language translators, as this is not a reliable means for determining article content.
★ Use LJ cuts. No more than two media items may be outside of a cut. This can be one pic and one vid or two pics. Any more than that must be cut.
★ No Hot-linking. Upload pictures to a hosting site such as Tinypic, Imageshack, or an LJ gallery. Try not to use Photobucket as bandwidth is easily exceeded.
★ Don't include anything in your post that will start playing instantly, whether it's audio or video. That's just annoying.
★ Posts must be related to Chinese pop culture. Try to avoid politics and general news, unless really interesting. Posts about random foreign artists' activities in the Sinosphere are also extremely discouraged, unless they also involve a Chinese artist and are not rumors.
★ Keep post content relatively recent. Generally as long as it hasn't been posted about and took place within the current month, it's fine.
★ Tag rules are HERE, please tag all posts accordingly.
★ We also do the occasional !guesswho, !wwib and !pimp post. Please see the respective tags for examples.
★ Use a somewhat informative title for your post. You don't have to use the source's, but try to make it informative and not ridiculous.


❖ No personal attacks on other members. Be respectful.
❖ In general, keep comments related to the post, unless it's a FFA.
❖ Spamming/trolling is never acceptable. Gifs are cool if they're related to the post in some way.
❖ There's no need for fandom fights.
❖ Please try to comment! If you're looking at a post and you like it, say so. We're trying to be a discussion community, not just a news-posting site. :)
