A few updates for TER. I won't take any names. Sorry if you're offended, as this isn't directed at anyone in particular.

Necroposting and spamming are two different, but still similar things.

Necroposting: When you post on an ancient or dead forum.
Spam: When something pointless is posted. That can even be something that makes sense in general, but is posted at the wrong place.

Stop necroposting and spamming. 5 word rule, remember. I'll post a necroposting rule at the end.



Secondly, misleading titles. Don't post anything with a title that is similar to this:

OMG LOOK AT THIS
wow!!!
How sad/cool/funny...etc.
Or any emoticon for a title.

It's misleading, as I mentioned, and being on point is important. So please ensure that your titles are not misleading. And chat speak is permitted on the chatbox, but the forum wants you to use good grammar, or atleast try to.



A few more rules we'll pass/update:

Necroposting rule: You may not post on any threads that have not been posted on for a month. That includes Pokemon Trade threads.

Spam rule: We're still keeping the 5 word rule. Posts such as "cool." and "oh." are accepted as spam. You can figure what other kinds of posts are accepted as spam.


I'm still leaving the rest for you all to figure, such as what is accepted as spam, necroposting, when you're defying the 5-word rule, and misleading titles.


Peace out, Azure still loves you. :3

If, hypothetically, you were to make a trade thread, then find that nobody has posted in it for a month (while you were away), would you make a new one when you got back, then?

There is an exception for some threads, like art and trade threads etc.

You may revive your own thread, but not someone else's. As Rai said, some threads are an exception for reviving. Bumping certain threads is allowed as well, but not all threads can be bumped. For example, threads for tourneys or announcements.

Since there are no more concerns, this thread is locked.
