Behold now mortals! Err, members. Below you will find the final draft of the changes to the TCG/OCG Discussion section. It's just a revamping of the rules, which will become effective come February 1st.
(_|The New TCG/OCG Discussion Section Rulebook|_)
Below you will find the rules for the TCG/OCG Discussion section.
Rule #1: YCM Forum Rules Clause
Follow these rules here in this section as you would any other section. If you wish to see these rules, click here.
Failure to comply will result in 1 WP for each breach.
Rule #2: The Civility Clause (AKA the Don't be a Dick to Each Other Clause)
This clause dictates that civility and courtesy must be maintained in this section, and while it is UTTERLY dreadful that people should have a different opinion than you, posting in TCG/OCG Discussion section requires you to be respectful of the opinions of others and not be a dick about it either. Nor should you deliberately rile someone up or attempt a loophole in this rule to get other people to start fights. It's not on.
Failure to comply will result in a verbal warning(s) via PM.
Failure to comply with the verbal warning(s) will result in an appropriate amount of warn points based on how much arguing occurred.
Rule #3: The Advanced Clause (AKA the Anti-Shitposting Clause)
This clause dictates that thoughtful discussion must be present in the TCG/OCG Discussion section, and it is mandated through four Sub-Rules:
Sub-Rule #1: Thread Name Clause
If you are to post a card(s) in the TCG/OCG Discussion section, you MUST include the name of the card/archetype in the name of the topic thread, as not including the name is confusing and clickbaiting.
"Poki Draco" is CORRECT
"Baby Dragonite Holding an Aspear Berry (Poki Draco)" is CORRECT
"Baby Dragonite Holding an Aspear Berry" is INCORRECT
Also, any card from the anime or manga you wish to discuss must include the appropriate [ANIME] and/or [MANGA] tags in the thread topic name as to not confuse people by making them believe said cards have been made. It's just douchey.
Failure to Comply will result in 1 WP and your thread's name will be altered to what is correct.
Changing these edits will result in 2 WP.
Sub-Rule #2: Opening Post Advanced Clause
Sub-Rule #3: Discussion Posting Advanced Clause
Sub-Rule #4: Blank Card Clause
