    Default Miscellaneous Forum Rules

    Welcome to the Miscellaneous Stuff forum!

    If you are a new member of TPM, feel free to make a new thread introducing yourself in this forum!

    For all members old and new, please familiarise yourself with the Miscellaneous Forum guidelines below:

    1) Global Forum Rules are in effect.

    2) The Miscellaneous Stuff forum is literally for anything that does not belong in any other forum. We encourage you to at least look at all the other forums before posting a thread here if you are unsure about where to post. As a rule of thumb, anything to do with Pokemon, Anime or Video Games belong in another forum. Anything from movies, TV shows, cartoons, news, politics, religion etc. will usually belong in this forum.

    If you feel a topic, story or issue deserves its own thread, such as a local news story, talking about your favourite sports team or even telling us a story or update about your own life (such as a new pet), feel free to make one! As long as the thread is worthwhile, it should garner decent replies. However, if a thread is deemed to be worthless by the moderators, for example, one line threads or completely spam threads with no real topic will be deleted/moved to Mt. Moon and the thread starter may get an infraction, depending on the circumstances (such as repeatedly starting stupid threads).

    Polls are welcome in Misc. now. If you want, you may preface your thread title with [POLL] or POLL or similar to denote it as something you would like a response to. Polls are allowed to develop into a wider discussion on the subject, however, if the thread starter wishes, it may be separated from the poll by request. However, polls that are more suited to another forum or are worthless may be moved to a more suitable forum or Mt. Moon as the discretion of the mods.

    3) You may begin collated threads (threads that have an ongoing topic, such as the Daily News thread or the NFL thread) without a moderator's permission but please do not start collated threads when it would be more appropriate for separate threads per new entry to be made, for example, please no Birthdays thread.

    4) Many topics and issues are divisive, particularly those of a religious, personal or political nature, and while we do encourage members to engage in debate, we ask that posts are constructive and respectful of a person's beliefs and views. Debates can get heated and escalate quickly as people attack each other's viewpoints. We ask that members don't post anything that could be construed as flaming. Witty banter and friendly jibes between friends are fine, but there is often a very fine line between a very aggressive debate and an outright flame war, and we ask our members to bear this in mind when they post. We're not here to regulate how debates are conducted, you as members can come to a consensus on that, but once we feel certain members' behaviours are beginning to ruin or derail a thread, we are obliged to take measures to rectify it.

    5) As a common courtesy to your fellow members, if you are revealing spoilers regarding a film, book, TV show etc. please either make use of the BB code regarding spoilers or indicate so at the beginning of your post.

    6) If you have any grievances, questions or issues in this forum, please do not make a thread or a post about it but PM one of the Miscellaneous Stuff mods.

    Thanks for reading and happy posting!

    - The Misc. Team
