News Discussion Rules

The following rules apply only to the News Discussion board in addition to the Site & Forum Guidelines and take precedence whenever there is a conflict.
  1. Posts that merely consist of "Will watch", "Won't watch", "Yay!" etc. will be removed without notice. Try expanding on why you are or are not interested.
  2. News threads will be locked 1 month after the announcement to keep the topic list relevant (quarterly threads are exempt). If additional newsworthy information is released after this time period, please submit a news article or message a moderator from the News Team. Otherwise, please move series-specific discussion to the anime/manga series boards.

Modification of Rule #2 due to threads consistently being bumped with no new information beyond the two week time limit. Old news threads will now be auto-locked without message 1 month after their creation. The goal of this rule is (and has always been) to keep the topic list relevant. A user should be able to enter the News Board and easily see new news topics which they can discuss, without needing to read through 100+ (5 index pages of) threads. The modification of this rule will help us to better facilitate the purpose of the News Board: "current news".

2. Do not bump threads more than two weeks old unless you have new information to add.
