Welcome to Gaia! ::

TV Anime Forum Rules and Guidelines

Welcome to the TV Anime subforum, hereafter referred to as TVA. This forum is for the discussion of anime that air or have aired on Basic Cable stations in North America. This includes discussion on specific episodes/movies that have yet to be localized, but still fall into the above category, ex: discussion of one of the Naruto movies.

As a member, it is your responsibility to familiarize yourself with the forum's rules before posting. Posting in this forum implies that you read and understand the rules and guidelines and that you accept responsibility for the appropriateness of your thread or post.

General Posting Guidelines

Please be sure to follow the Terms of Service and Rules and Guidelines here, as in all forums.

-Spamming: Image spamming is absolutely not tolerated. As amusing as you might think you are, you aren't! This includes, but is not limited to, posting fail macros, or other internet memes in misplaced threads. Off-topic chatter should be kept to a minimum. Remember, all threads should have discussion pertaining to a topic related to Anime, Manga or comics (also cartoons).

-Copyrights: Requesting or providing links to copyrighted materials such as: manga, television shows, anime etc, is not permitted! The only exception to this rule is official media provided by the owner or publisher, such as official streams.

-Spoilers: It is common courtesy to provide spoiler warnings and/or hide them within white text when discussing them. Maliciously or repeatedly posting spoilers in order to ruin someone's enjoyment of a manga or anime is considered trolling and is a bannable offense.

-Flaming: Do not flame users for any reason! Flaming often involves name-calling and insults. It will only result in you being warned. Please keep all your discussions civil. Pictoflaming, similar to image macro spamming, is not tolerated. Please keep your amusing image macros to yourselves and attempt to discuss in a civil manner

If you find Terms of Service violations, or threads that may need moved to a different forum, please use an appropriate report. The procedures for doing so can be found here.

Rules & Guidelines for Posting in TVA

1. Please use the stickies located in AMC main. Any thread that covers a topic that fits into a sticky will be removed.

2. Please read the What belongs in TVA sticky for a list of shows that are appropriate to base discussion on.

3. Copyrighted Material: Regarding downloads, threads having links to web sites or other resources containing illegal downloads or streaming episodes of anime and/or manga are not permitted on the forums. Asking for or giving out such content is a warnable offense and any topics or posts created for such a purpose will be removed. Note: Linking to a site that contains copyrighted materials, even if you aren't linking to the materials in question, i.e. a picture gallery when the site contains a media page with downloads of manga, is still considered linking to copyrighted materials and a ToS violation. Any and all threads asking for download links of any sort will be removed from the forum and the creator punished if necessary. The only exception to this rule will be sites with streaming episodes that are officially provided by the original or licensing companies. (e.g. toonamijetstream.com)

4. Regarding "Official" Threads: We'd like to stress the fact that outside of the stickies, and the threads highlighted within the stickies (should there be any) there are no "Official" threads in AMC. All threads that bear the title "Official" and are not mentioned in said stickies, or a sticky themselves, are nothing more then user created threads.

5. Polls are not discussion. Anything that can be answered by simply voting in a poll is not suitable for TVA.

Report Hacking, Scamming or Abuse & Harassment?

The Hacking, Scamming and Abuse or Harassment report forms can be found at the bottom of the forum index. When submitting a report, ensure that you fill out all fields and include as much relevant information as possible.

    Report A Hacking
    Use this form to report a Hacking. Hacking, on Gaia Online, refers to the unauthorized access of an account by someone other than the account owner. In most typical hacking cases, an unauthorized person enters an account which does not belong to him or her and takes items or gold from the account, often changing the account information so that the original owner can no longer access his or her account.

    Report A Scamming
    Use this form to report a Scamming. Scamming is when another member of Gaia takes your gold or items, or tries to take your gold or items, by making false promises of giving you rare items, get-rich-quick schemes, or by any other deceptive means. Scamming generally involves a situation in which two members of Gaia make an arrangement to trade gold, items, or a Gaia approved service (e.g. avatar art commission) with each other and then one of the parties involved in the arrangement fails to live up to his or her promise of an exchange.

    Report Abuse or Harassment
    Use this form to report ongoing Abuse or Harassment. If you are reporting harassment or abuse that is occurring directly in a thread, please use the "Report This Post" button instead.
