let's make opinions threads a thing again

Here's mine. Doesn't necessarily have to be about people, but I'm not inclined either way in regards to talking about people or not-people-things.

General Section Rules

14 August 2017 - 05:40 PM

In addition to the below, all Yu-Gi-Oh! Cardmaker site rules apply. Do not break them.


  • When posting your thread, make sure it has proper grammar and spelling. Opening posts and titles of threads may be edited to correct spelling/grammar errors.
  • Speaking of posting your thread, be sure to keep the following in mind:
    • Threads meant to discuss political, ethical, religious, or otherwise controversial subjects, belong in Debates.
    • Threads meant purely for a joke/meme, or otherwise silly threads that are more a joke than an intended place for discussion, belong in Misc.
    • Threads in General, Debates, and Misc, may be moved between the three sections as needed, depending on how the thread develops.
  • Spam/meme threads posted in General or Debates will be handled on a case-by-case basis, but generally will be given 24 hours to become a thread appropriate for the section if it was meant for that section, before being treated as spam and moved to Misc, or moved straight to Misc with the same treatment without a 24-hour grace period if there's no indication of such intent. More on spam later.
  • When posting your thread in General, remember to give a prompt that can generate some discussion about the intended topic. Don't just say "Talk about x subject" for instance. Threads of the "Talk about x subject" nature may be treated as spam, on a case-by-case basis.
  • A final note on actually posting your thread: You are only allowed to post one topic in General per hour. Don't flood the section. Cases where members continually post one topic per hour will be looked into and handled at moderator discretion.
  • When replying to a thread, try to stay on-topic. 
  • Necrobumping - the act of posting in a thread that has received no activity in over thirty days - will be handled on a case-by-case basis. As a general guideline, necrobumps with nothing to contribute will be treated as spam, but those that add new contributions to the thread (a new biological discovery might be posted in a dead thread about biology, for instance) should more often than not be fine. Remember, this is a case-by-case situation.
  • Posts that don't contribute to the discussion in a thread will be handled on a case-by-case basis, but will likely be treated as spam.
  • Lastly, just a reminder: Don't spam, don't flame, etc. These will be punished appropriately, which we'll get to right now.

So, I'm not sure how punishments work and scale in other sections, but this is how it's going to work in General and related sections (these guidelines will be in the rules for the other sections as well, as they're updated). Quick disclaimer first: These aren't set in stone, to-the-letter systems; just a general guideline. Consider each offense to be a case-by-case basis, but unless the offense is something drastic, this is generally how it should work.

  • Harrassment/Flaming: Upon the first offense for either of these, a verbal warn will be given. Each repeat offense will be given a number of warning points, starting anywhere between one and three depending on the degree of the offense and if the member has a known history of these behaviors, with future repeat offenses being assigned higher warn point values, generally in increments of one or two points. Harrassment and flaming offenses will be treated as one and the same here; a repeat offender for one will not receive a verbal warn on their first offense for the other.
  • Spam: In the case of spam replies, the first offense will receive a verbal warn, with warn points being assigned to repeat offenses similarly to harrassment or flaming. Spam replies will be hidden. In the case of spam threads, the thread will be moved to Misc or deleted/hidden, and otherwise treated the same as spam replies.
  • Flooding: First offense will prompt a verbal warn, with potential additional actions being taken on a case-by-case basis depending on the thread in question. Repeat offenses will be given warning points based on the number of offenses and the severity of the offense.
  • Necrobumping: In the case that a necrobump is punished, the first offense will prompt a verbal warn, with repeat offenses gaining warn points as with every other offense so far. In addition, a punished necrobump may lead to the thread being locked and/or hidden, on a case-by-case basis.
  • Inappropriate Content (Non-pornographic): This includes, but isn't necessarily limited to: Excessive swearing (you shouldn't be able to reach "excessive" without trying, don't worry), hate speech/racism, sexual content, excessive gore, etc. If the site rules and/or your common sense tells you it's inappropriate, odds are it's inappropriate. The first offense in these cases will be given both a verbal warn and at least one warning point, with the exact amount depending on the severity of the content. Repeat offenses will be given continued increases in warning points, once again depending on the severity of the content. Inappropriate posts may be edited to remove the content in question.
  • Inappropriate Content (Pornographic): The offender will be immediately permabanned, and their post/thread will be deleted. No exceptions.
  • Anything Else: If it isn't listed above, it's best to assume it will be treated as most other offenses; the first offense prompts a verbal warn, with warning points coming in after that. Should offenses not on this list come up, the list may be updated accordingly.

We've come full circle.

Original vs Cover 5: Stargazer

16 July 2017 - 07:52 PM

With Cow's blessing I got to pick the next Original vs Cover. If you haven't seen an OvC thread before basically he sets up a poll where people vote for the original version of a song or the cover. Typical rules apply, no spamming if you're gonna post, please follow site rules, etc.
