Rules of the Entertainment Forum


  • All Universal Forum Rules relating to posting behavior apply!
    These should be the first thing you read when you join the forums, and they apply everywhere on the AE Forums.

  • Not everything goes
    A list of topics that are prohibited or on probation in the OOC, can be found here.

  • Discussion is a must
    The OOC is a place for friendly, civilized discussion. When posting here, please keep a few things in mind:
      Posts that are simply lists of things, or just contain links are not considered having a discussion and will be removed.
      Put effort into your posts. Check spelling, grammar and cite sources as best you can.
      Remember that not every discussion is a battle. It is always better to agree to disagree rather than get into a heated argument.
      Tone matters and there is no excuse for being rude or disrespectful. Convey your views and opinions with courtesy and tact.

  • No spamming, flaming or trolling
    The OOC sets a high standard for posting behavior, and all instances of spamming, flaming or trolling will be met with consequences. Pointless topics such as "I like Pie!" do not belong here. Nor do popularity threads such as "How recognizable are you" or "Who's the coolest OOC member?"

  • No ranting
    The OOC is not meant to be an outlet for your anger. Threads and posts made solely to vent your negative feelings will be removed and met with consequences.

  • No advertising
    Posts intended to advertise your YouTube Channel, social media account, pet project, petition, product etc. are not allowed in the OOC.

  • Use this forum for what it was meant for
    Polls do not belong in the OOC. Entertainment topics including music, movies, video/computer Games, etc. belong in the Entertainment Forum.
    Forum Games belong in the Forum Games subforum.

  • No advice or tech support threads
    We are a game forum, not "Dear Abby." This is not a place to ask for help with your real life problems, nor is it for putting your personal life on display. This includes any tech support threads - the OOC is not qualified to provide any personal or technical assistance.

  • Protect your privacy.
    Do not post your real name, age, address, phone number, school name/location or any other information that could be used to invade your privacy. If you feel like someone is pressuring you to reveal your personal info, PM a Moderator immediately.

  • You are responsible for your links
    Do not link to anything that would not be considered appropriate on the forums. This includes the comments section of videos, blogs, news articles, etc. The following links can be used to hide YouTube comments.


  • No mini-modding
    We have Moderators and ArchKnights for a reason. If you see an issue you think we have missed, please PM one of us and we will handle it. Not sure who to contact? Check the Staff list located here.

  • No duplicate topics
    There is no need to have four threads discussing the same topic. When it comes time to make a second thread, do NOT make a new one until the old one is locked. If necessary, PM an active ArchKnight or Moderator to have the thread taken care of. Patience is expected.

  • Necrobumping
    Threads are considered dead if they've been inactive for 14 days or more. If you wish to revisit the topic, just make a new thread.

  • Staff have final say
    Membership of this forum is a privilege, not a right. Forum Staff have final say on any given matter, and any disagreements not conducted in a private and respectful manner through the appropriate channels will be considered both harassment and trolling. If you have issues with Forum Staff, follow these instructions:
    • For an ArchKnight: PM them first and attempt to resolve the issue privately. If you cannot resolve the issue, contact the head moderator of the board (For the OOC this is: Corvus Corax) If your issue still cannot be resolved, you can take it to the forum Co-heads Scakk and/or Stratos.
    • For a Moderator: PM that moderator first and attempt to resolve the issue privately. If they cannot resolve your issue, you can take it to the forum Co-heads ( Scakk and/or Stratos.).

    Prohibited Entertainment Forum Topics

    The following discussion topics are not allowed in the Entertainment Forum:

    • Movies and shows rated NC-17 (No children under 17) or AO (Adult Only)

    These topics may NOT be discussed in any form or fashion. This includes any form of TV show, movie, anime, etc. Breaking this rule can result in consequences up to and including a permanent forum ban.

    Probationary Entertainment Forum Topics

    The following discussion topics are to be considered on ongoing probation:

    • Vs. threads - Because of the nature of the gaming community, it is only logical that such threads come up. Know that the almost volatile nature of some fans, these threads will be watched especially close. There will not be much in the way of tolerance for rule breaking in here. Examples: Warhammer vs Star Wars, Xbox One vs Playstation 4, Console vs PC, etc.

    • R rated movies - May be discussed, but content that violates forum rules may not be discussed. This includes video links.*

    • M rated game discussion - May be discussed, but content that violates forum rules may not be discussed. This also includes video links.*

      quote:

      Ratings Guide

      *Examples of movie and game content that violates forum rules includes but is not limited to:

      Blood and Gore - Depictions of blood or the mutilation of body parts
      Sexual Content - Non-explicit depictions of sexual behavior, possibly including partial nudity
      Strong Language - Explicit and/or frequent use of profanity
      Intense Violence - Graphic and realistic-looking depictions of physical conflict. May involve extreme and/or realistic blood, gore, weapons and depictions of human injury and death


    Forum Members are tentatively allowed to discuss these probationary topics, but any inappropriate conduct in them will result in disciplinary action ranging from Official Warnings to Forum Bans. Furthermore, if it is seen that any of these topics are becoming problematic, they may be moved into the Prohibited Topics category. If you have any questions about the appropriateness of a thread or post, PM any OOC Moderator or ArchKnight for guidance.

    This list is not to be considered all inclusive, and may be added to at any time.

    You are responsible for your links
    Do not link to anything that would be considered inappropriate on the forums. This includes the comments section of videos, blogs, news articles, etc. The following links can be used to hide YouTube comments.
