BASIC FORUM GUIDELINES

Post by Dark Lilly »

BASIC FORUM GUIDELINES

PROFANITY
The occasional “damn” or “hell” may be overlooked. More graphic and vulgar language will not be tolerated in any of the forums, even the ones for adults only.

SPAM
Pointless, annoying or off topic posts will not win you friends. You my find your messages moved, nuked and/ or your account locked.

POST IN THE CORRECT FORUM
- Think before you submit. Make sure your topic in the most logical and effective place. Example: If you are asking about song lyrics, don’t post in Any Specific Anime. (It’s been done) Post it in Music Discussion.

- If you have something to say about RahXephon, for example, look to see if there is a forum dedicated to it. There isn’t. Therefore you post it in Any Specific Anime and not in Anime Discussion.

- “My Little Brother Stuck A Bean Up His Nose” goes in Pointless Chit-Chat.

DON’T START A REDUNDANT THREAD

Read through at least the first two pages of a forum and make sure there the topic does not already exist. We really don’t need another “Who Do You Think Is Hot” thread anywhere.

DON’T GIVE AWAY THE ENDING!!!

Don’t screw up a story for someone who hasn’t seen it yet. Do not come out and say “So-and-so died” or “Joe Greentooth ended up with the girl,” or anything else crucial to the plot. Use “Spoiler” warnings and the spoiler black out feature.

RESPECT

Respect other’s likes even if they don’t suit your own. Stating “That anime sucks,” is not valid criticism. You certainly can say you don’t like a particular anime but there is no need insult all the people who do. If you don’t like something state reasonably why.

REPORT JERKS
Don’t hesitate to PM a moderator or two or three when you see someone messing things up. We are all on at different times so one of us is bound to take care of it.

Stand back! This old Otaku has PMS, a broadsword, a double bladed battle ax, a flail, dagger in her teeth and a pistol in her belt.

^ Yeah, that sounds about right. It's people who

1. Spam their own topics
2. Continue to spam them.
3. Who don't follow the rules.
