    General MangaFive rules

    General MangaFive Forum Rules, Guidelines and Etiquette


    Basic MF Rules:

    Be Respectful
    No compromises. No exceptions. It's the number one rule at MF.

    No Chat Speaking
    This is a forum where members can carry on discussions about topics that interest them. It’s not an IM session or a chatbox, so please don’t treat it as such. Use proper English (or as close as possible for those who aren’t native English speakers) grammar, spelling and punctuation. We won’t jump all over you for every little thing, but if you make a habit of pOStiNg l1Ke tHiS, then expect to have someone say something to you about it.

    No Bashing
    This means:
    No bashing people. (This includes any single person and or group/race of people)
    No bashing other sites. (If you don't like the site, then why mention it?)
    No bashing manga / characters. If there's something in particular you dislike about a manga or character, you can state that in an existing thread. But if you dislike a manga / character there's no need to create a thread for that, and there's no need to bash the manga / character. It just ends up leading to fights
    This includes PMs that bother people.

    No Spamming inside the forum
    Spam is any post that doesn't contribute to the discussion. For example, posting just to say “Yeah!” or “I agree with this!” is considered spam. Excessive spamming will not be allowed and any posts will be deleted. Anyone who makes a habit of posting short, spam-like posts will be warned and if it continues, infractions and possible bans will ensue.

    No Fighting
    Don’t fight with other members, and definitely don’t start fights with the staff. Seriously, it’s not worth it and no one will end up happy, least of all you.

    No Flaming/Flame Baiting
    Flaming is attacking someone. Very simple, if you're respectful and don't get into fights, you won't need to worry about it.
    Flame Baiting is making statements that try to get them to respond back at you with derogatory statements. It's punished just as severely as flaming itself.

    No Hentai / Porn
    Absolutely no porn / hentai links, images or downloads. Any such posts will be modified/deleted accordingly and you will be hearing from one of the staff. Depending on the severity of the offense it may result in a ban. This is a PG-13 forum, let’s keep it that way.

    No Duplicate Accounts
    That means one account per person. There's really no need for anyone to have more than one account anyway. We're not going to go off on you if you have multiple accounts (we understand about siblings) but just know that we're watching, and we know.
    If you are banned for other reasons and you create a duplicate account to get around the ban, then the ban will be made permanent.

    No Advertising Links
    This is pretty self-explanatory. The OneManga Forums aren’t here for you to spam advertising links for any reason. No links to money making sites of any sort are permitted in posts or signatures. Anyone found posting such links will be given a warning and/or ban as the situation merits.



    Forum Etiquette Guidelines:

    Post Smart. Remember to make your posts thoughtful and always try to invite good discussion, and have respect for other people's opinions. If we feel that you are deliberately looking to start trouble or to annoy people, don't expect either your thread or posts to last very long. Remember to argue the topic, not the person.

    As long as your post is related to the topic of the thread, it won't be considered spamming or off-topic. Have fun. If a thread is already starting to veer off-topic, please don’t contribute to the problem.
    Don't Double Post (posting twice in a row in a short period of time). You have an edit button, use it to alter your posts instead of making another post altogether. In some situations, it's acceptable- if the two posts are spaced out in time and topic. Try to avoid it, however.
    Look to see if a thread about your interest already exists: Several of the forum boards (especially the Naruto, Bleach and One Piece) have handy master lists of discussions that the staff here work hard to keep updated. If you're unsure whether the topic you'd like to discuss already has a thread, please check there first.
    Make your titles very clear: if you are creating the thread, please follow the existing title format (if there is one) or make sure that the thread title sufficiently represents what the topic is about. Don’t make a thread title with something like “Why should I…?” and expect that something so vague won’t changed by the moderators here to better reflect the subject of the thread, even if the first post is excellent.
    Be Considerate. We have a nice community here. Let's keep it that way. If you make a lot of offensive posts - anything sexual in nature, for example - they'll be deleted. If you include a lot of vulgarity in your posts or deliberately try to get around the word filter, that won't be tolerated for very long either. So don't be immature and silly, and you'll be just fine.

    Most of all, remember to have fun and enjoy yourself. OneManga is a great place to talk about your favorite manga, so let’s keep it that way!

    Basic MF rules

    Original Version:

    Forum Etiquette:

    This is very simple.
    1) Be respectful. Respect the opinions of others. Debate, but not too loud, or with too much emotion. Don't say things that aren't nice.
    2) Forums are not IMs. Speak english please. I won't jump on you for every little thing, but a sentence like "nARUTO IS TEH BEST!!!! iT ROXORS MY SOXORS!!!" just doesn't cut it. Also, try not to post messages with one word, like saying 'lol', and also keep the profanity down.
    3) Don't spam.
    4) Don't say derogatory things to each other
    5) Don't tell La Del you don't like Sasuke
    6) Double Posts are okay as long as they're separate thoughts...
    7) Stop the fighting: I don't know why it's suddenly came up but don't do it. I do NOT like it.
    Cool Don't multi-accounts. I do NOT like it.
