-Grues did not create feminism. They might not even know what that is.
-Grues don't own the media. They probably don't know what that is either.
-Grues don't start wars, politicians and advisors are not known to be grues (mostly because they refuse to enter the dark).
-Hollywood seems to be kept in the dark about grues.
-Grues are the ones pushing for mass immigration of people into the Dark (they're hungry).
-Grues don't have bank accounts.
-Grues can't even see pornography. It's too dark.
-95% of all "grue" attacks are REAL attacks that are carried out by underground grue agents.
-Grues didn't create major social media networks, nor do they control any social media accounts.
-Grues were not responsible for slavery (the ships which brought African slaves to America had no grues).
-Grues don't work at 7-11 (don't Google this, I don't feel like backing up my claims with facts).
-Grues are probably susceptible to diseases. I don't even know.
-Grues may not even be aware of pro-transexual or pro-homosexual messages. If they are, they probably don't even pay them any heed.
-Grues have eaten everyone who tried to obtain even the slightest hint of grue religion.
-Speaking in the dark is a good way to get eaten by a grue.
-Grues are not trying to take away your guns (there aren't even any grue politicians, see above).
-Nobody knows if grues are more likely to have mental diseases (grues are not a disease. You can't "contract the grue").
-The educational system has an underwhelming number of grue students; a grand total of ZERO. Grues are also not related to communism at all.
-Everyone who tried to find out if there are even any homosexual grues have been eaten.
-There is absolutely no information on any genocidal events in which the grues were the victim. All we really know is that if you are in the dark, you will be eaten by a grue.

You are Gan Ning, you are a man of action and you do not really take to "etiquette". You are very confident in your own abilities in battle often times trying to force a duel out of any you can, this exterior can come across as arrogant but most people do not realize that you have a decent head on your shoulders.
This is especially amusing considering who got Ling Tong.

If you could draft up a small rules list (1-3 rules) for YCM (site) in relation to the discord, what would you propose then?
There probably isn't very much of a need for more rules in regard to the Discord. There was that "don't bring drama from the forum to Discord and vice versa" rule, but I'm not entirely sure of my own stance on that, to be honest.
The only thing I can think of right now is to require mods on the Discord to have the same username and/or avatar that they do on the forum, or very similar. Not in support of extending this rule to all members though. It would let users more easily identify who's who, so that if they need to speak to a mod on the Discord about something on the forum, they can make sure they have the right one.

So we would keep the Discord under Lujan's ownership and have it officially be tied to YCM again. I'm okay with this. However, I do have some concerns.
The biggest problem YCM's Discord presented was applying punishments for Discord actions retroactively across YCM (site) and YCM (discord). This would require many changes to the rules and how they apply to YCM (site) and YCM (discord). What do you propose?
While I'm wanting to tie the two back together, there probably isn't a need to carry over punishments from one to the other. Infractions, from what I've seen, have solely only been from what happened on the forum, or what happened solely on the Discord, but not quite both. There probably will not be a need to punish rulebreakers on both entities.

Haven't really been on DP much lately but I guess I can try to answer these questions.
The existence of this section, rather than having the Duel Portal thread shelved as a pinned thread in some other section, is a notion of support for the project that I like that the site is showing. A pinned thread blends much more easily into the background of everything else in CC, and heck, we even sometimes have questions in the Questions section about Duel Portal. Which is why that despite the section's lack of activity, that it's had since like forever, I'm loath to say to get rid of it.
Given the Discord's takeover of pretty much anything this section could be used for, there's not really much that can be done here. It exists, and is getting the activity, and an entire forum section doesn't have all that much to offer in its stead despite having the advantage of your posted threads being on the surface for far longer than they would be in the Discord before they're eventually buried. Speaking of the Discord, a small benefit could be to pin a thread for the Discord channel, or see if Sea will edit the OP of his thread to include it. I know it is available in the Duel Portal site, but hey, you get to save a step in getting there. Another small change would to also allow this section to function as the Deckbuilding section, in addition to a CC section. I don't actually think anyone would've even batted an eye if someone had posted a Deck build thread, but saying that it's allowed couldn't hurt.
This section's activity is based more on the activity of Custom Cards than it is on the activity of Duel Portal itself; YCM is mostly irrelevant to the Discord community from what I've seen.To them, YCM isn't really a community, it's more alike a tool because of the "upload from the cardmaker" option, and they think even less of this place since right now our cardmaker is pretty awful. The eventual cardmaker fix would help activity in this section, but only because it'd improve the activity in CC in general. The Duel Portal Discord community has little reason to even consider a forum when they have Discord, and there's perhaps absolutely nothing that can be done about that. As of this post, they haven't even acknowledged that they even know this thread exists.
Perhaps the best course of action would be to try to foster a community that just feels different from the one in the Discord. This could be just because of a few users on the Discord, but the DP Discord peeps sometimes seemed kinda hard to approach. A bit ironic to say coming from me, but still. Nevertheless, they don't seem to have the patience for dealing with DP members that don't commit very much to their archetypes, or play on their power level (which, kinda like back when I and other YCMembers were in their position, seems to be a meta-level or slightly below such). They're totally going to quote this post just to say "nuh-uh, we're totally nice!" now that I said this. The section should be welcoming to the users who aren't doing that. If their entire archetype has no synergy whatsoever, if their monsters are Ninjas instead of Warriors for no apparent reason, if their card arts have no background half the time, let's not get abrasive about it.
This is more of a thing that's in this (currently nonexistent) community's hands than in the hands of a moderator, though.
