Welcome to American Girl Collectors, where Collectors of all Kinds are welcome! We're the Socially Conscious, Troublesome American Girl Message Board you've probably heard of. We are both for American Girl collectors and are an openly Social Justice Focused/Oppressed Peoples First board. Please read the rules, and once you can confirm you understand the rules, then contact staff to obtain membership.

MEMBERSHIP ALERT: 11/22/17:
A situation has come to the attention of the mod staff, which has collectively led to the the unfortunate decision to restrict access by outsiders to any of AGC's content. Until we can be certain that we as a board are left well enough alone, we will not be accepting any new members that have not contacted a moderator beforehand. Guests and non-members will not be able to read any information beyond rules and announcements. All unsolicited/non-invited applicants will be automatically rejected.
If you would like to be part of our fine, if weird, and socially conscious doll community, then please find a way to contact moderator staff. Thank you for understanding.

Announcement, 6/15/17: We are working on some adjustments to our rules, as well as a central post for Rules Updates and Clarifications. The post is here. This is also a reminder that all rules apply to all members from the first moment you are admitted.
Announcement, 11/15/17: A new rule has been added in "Rules of Self Expression: Gender, Race, Religion, and The Like" articulating to that we will not allow Native-mimicking/culture disrespective crafting or displays of any kind, here or elsewhere. The full new rule can be seen here: Why Culturally Appropriative/Non-Native Craft Is Not Allowed
Announcement, 1/3/18: Luciana Vega has been added to the AG Pictionary! Please refresh yourself on the rules for the Pictionary before posting. We have also included Bald Dolls, CYO, and Boy Dolls!

Due to several situations that have come up on the board recently, the rules are in a period of refresh and clarification. This is likely to be the first of many, but some things about the board will not be changing whatsoever. Keep an eye on this thread.



Changes, June 15, 2017:
--More definition of terms in the Self Expression, including Ethnic/Culture terms. This section is ever expanding.
--The Self-Expression Rules are now written as six separate posts, with a header that will be cleaned up later; it was getting very long and hard to update as a single post.
--The new following information in The Rest of the Self-Expression Rules:

Language Regulation: The mods all speak English primarily, so all posts should be in English. But feel free to use other languages here and there at any time, as long as there is a translation so the mods will understand. As for curse words: The general curses are allowed here. All of them. We can say damn, shit, fuck, bitch, ass, and all that. They are not censored. You may censor yourself, but don't censor others when they use them as parts of their speech. People will curse, cuss, and use "bad words." Do not tell people not to curse, but you can tell people not to curse at you. Note the difference between "fuck this" and "fuck you." There is a difference if they are cussing at you, and that is mod-worthy. Don't report a post for saying "what the shit," for example. This is not up for debate. If liberal, open cursing bothers you to the point you can't participate in this board, then this is not the board for you.
