The bashing thread is for the sole sake of venting frustrations towards any artist or fandom.
Forum rules apply even in the bashing thread. The specific guidelines are as follows…
- It is not a place to discuss frustrations (ranting) towards a specific user or users on the forum. Do not link to or reference specific posts/threads elsewhere on the forum. Linking to or referencing threads/posts is treated as directed bashing towards the poster of the thread/post being referenced.
- No defending, period. Even if the content is misinformed it is not acceptable to quote and correct the poster. Long winded conversations derailing the thread about who is right or not are the reason for this rule.
- Long conversations are not acceptable. To be exact, quoting once or twice to agree with a bash is fine as long as a new bash is made to stay on topic. Anything beyond that will not be accepted. Please keep any minor conversations to a minimum of less than one page. The purpose of this is to keep the thread clean and tidy.
- It goes without saying but reporting people for bashing in this thread will be dismissed as that is the purpose of this thread, to bash an artist or fandom.
- Do not copy content from the bashing thread to post it elsewhere on the forum. Any links to or posts copied outside the thread will be removed.
What happens in the bashing thread stays in the bashing thread.
The breaking of any of these rules will result in an immediate ban from this thread. The ban is permanent and can only be removed through an amnesty event or through an appeal process. Check the Rules tab for the appeal information.
If you want to ask who banned you and why, use the Ask a Mod thread. This thread is a joint effort between all the mods.
