General Rules - *Please Read!*

Post by LeSkuh on Sun May 29, 2016 1:36 pm

I'm a little behind with this, but as things are coming up, I decided it best to make a little guideline of basic forum etiquette.  I know a lot of you guys are newbies to forum style of chatting.


01] For the sake of your mods, we ask that you stick to English on this board.  Obviously, bits and pieces of relevant languages are fine, but unfortunately at this point we don't have any multilingual mods to monitor entire threads in any other language.  Expanding on this, please do your best to use proper spelling and grammar, though I am aware we may have some EASL speakers and will be lenient with this rule.

02] Generally, try not to go overboard with fonts/colors/smilies.  We want things to be as readable as possible.  If for some reason you'd like to start a smiley spam thread please take it to the off topic board.

03] Don't make a habit of replying to yourself multiple times.  We'll all probably do this from time to time, but a thread devolving into you holding what is essentially a conversation with yourself is unnecessary.  We do have an edit feature after all!

04] Please not to be repetitious with threads.  This is one I'm starting to see crop up.  If your comment/information could fit under another existing thread there is no reason to start a new topic.  I know we have a few head canon threads out there that could be used for future HC ideas.  Same with news about Voice Actors.

05] This goes hand in hand with rule 4.  I highly encourage EVERYONE to post their creative endeavors. However, you should make one thread for yourself per applicable section (1 in fan art, 1 in fanfic, 1 in projects) and stick to those.  You don't need a new thread with each new story/drawing/etc.

06] Be respectful and kind!  We're different people with different ideas and viewpoints, but I expect you all to be tolerant of one another.  If you ARE having issues with anyone, please let me know in a PM so that I can try to assist in the situation.

Just to clarify about headcanon threads, how would you like them organized (by user, subject, character)? Should they be in "Hey Arnold!" area or somewhere else?

I'm not super picky about where, but just a general "character head canons" thread that we should stick to would be good. We currently have five separate head canon threads under the Hey Arnold area and none are really getting discussion, so a more generalized thread would probably be good.

What if you blocked any more posts to the existing ones, and just started a catch-all thread?
Or perhaps 2, one being a general head canon thread and the second having to do with character sexuality/gender since that seems to be a popular head canon topic?

Thank you for this list of rules, and it will certainly be quite helpful!

However, I do have one question. I like to have discussions about the future of the Hey Arnold characters (their jobs, possible kids, etc.,) and I just wonder if that is allowed on here? I, in fact, have a few headcanons as well, which I've seen on the board, so I might be posting some of those soon, as well.

Thank you.

Absolutely! Feel free to make some sort of "Character's Future" type thread. If there's just general head canons about character's backstories or lives, I would try to just add them onto already existing Headcanon threads to maybe keep discussion going on head canons in general?
