What do you mean?


Also Multiple threads about the same thing (and sorta the same thing, + either closed or hard to find in search)


We do think it's good to have fresh new threads as well as well-established longstanding threads, and we don't want things to get stagnant by closing new threads just because there's an (inactive) older thread, so sometimes we cull old threads. We also don't want the place getting cluttered with too much repetition of threads that are largely the same.

We rely a lot on others to point out duplicates, and if an old thread is found that's more than a couple of months of old we'll generally close the old one to keep the new. With new threads that have some commonality with other new threads, it's a judgment call. If they start off distinctively enough then it's likely both threads will be allowed. In the end it's the users who decide what stays active and what sinks back into the pages where they get less attention.

Regarding searches that turn up threads in the Closed forum -- that's inconvenient. Most of the time it's fine to create a new thread if the only existing thread on the topic has been closed -- but that does depend on the reason the thread was closed. Usually there will be a post at the end of the closed thread saying why it was closed. If it was because the topic was inappropriate, then don't start a new one. If it was a thread closed recently because it generated a lot of fighting, then it would be best to wait a little while before attempting the topic again.

Directing people to sites for content that is not appropriate on CR's forums is also not appropriate. Therefore you should not link to graphic violence or extreme gore.

To some extent it's a judgment call. If you are uncertain whether something you are considering is or is not suitable, then I'd say the most appropriate thing is to choose not to post it.

We're also pretty reasonable. If it seems someone made a bad choice without realizing it might offend, they'll generally get just a warning the first time, and it will serve as an example to help calibrate better judgment about what's okay here. Here are quotes from the rules, broken down in a slightly simpler fashion:


should be appropriate for the comfort of a wide range of users.
- So consider different ages and different sensitivities.

Avoid especially salacious or graphically violent content


as well as material likely to be found offensive, including excessive vulgarity


and tasteless commentary or jokes regarding rape, sexual orientation, race, nationality, religion, etc


Keep in mind that context is relevant.
-So be aware of the situation, and assess your choices based on that.

There aren't!

The site rules get updated very infrequently, but we did a major rewrite at the beginning of June so Bjaker posted about it here to alert people to it, and to give folks a chance to ask questions and give feedback. It's been pretty quiet for a while, but just recently some questions came up, so I've been answering them.

i don't know exactly where to put this, so I'm leaving it here , since spamming is against site rules and it could pertain to this.... but there's a fair amount of spammers coming into the forums lately and linking to virus or scam sites, has this always been a constant thing for CR, or have i just begun to notice? Also, is there any way for CR to block these guys permanently based on their IP? I'm just kinda concerned. I have been helping exterminate these spammers as quickly as they pop up by reporting them, but is there anything else that can be done to thwart them from coming back?

There's a limited amount that can be done, because they don't all come from the same place, and it's easy for them to resurface. Kind of like whack-a-mole. If you want to express your concern directly to CR, then I suggest using the Contact Us form.

And, keep reporting them when you see them. We really appreciate that a lot!

Welcome! Thanks for reading up on the rules!

This thread isn't for general conversation though. To introduce yourself and engage in more personal "chatty" type conversation, go to the Chit Chat forum.

For topic-based discussion, visit one of the content-based forums (Anime, Manga, Gaming, Movies, Music, etc.) shown in the "Discussion" section of the main forum page. For topic-based discussions that don't fit into any of the listed categories, use "General Discussion."

Enjoy!

I wonder what Janus Cascade would say about the Rules! ;p Yes the Legendary Outlaw from Wild arm 3! :p

I'm not spamming btw! -_-;, I'm pretty sure if Janus Cascade is real he would share his intellect about this discussion! :p

Isn't that right Karkarov?
