    Anime Online Rules and FAQs

    ANIME ONLINE RULES

    Anime Online is run by a group of individuals who have come together to form one of the best online communities just for anime fanatics. As with any great community there must be rules and enforcers of those rules to ensure that all can fully enjoy this community and that it maintains the maximum amount of order and tranquility. The following is a listing of the site leaders and the rules they will be enforcing:

    Administrators (Appear in Light Orange):
    • Dragon Ball - Site Owner and Operator
    • Sinistra
    • Trunks
    • frr_Vegeta

    Their duties are to facilitate ways to mature and grow the site to the best of their abilities while keeping the best interests of the community intact. This is through the promotion, advancement, and general upkeep of the site. This also includes the selection of the next set of "leaders" on the board:

    Super Moderators (Appear in Light Green):
    • LenMiyata (Head Moderator)
    • Hassun
    • Eriadd
    • Pyoro-Pyoro
    • Miroku4444
    • Jaderabbit
    • Dancy_SaZ
    • kedar
    • Soldat of life

    Gallery Moderators (Appear in Light Yellow)
    • Kasai
    • SasuraiHell
    • Sazuka
    Their duties are to enforce the rules and guidelines outlined in this document.

    Please read through this document carefully as it contains important information for users on how to utilize our forums as well as essential rules on how to conduct oneself on our board.

    USER INFO:
    1. You must use correct information when registering. This includes your email address and real name.
    2. Strictly no impersonation. Do not impersonate any person, forum leaders, guides or Admins, or falsely state or otherwise misrepresent your affiliation with a person or entity. Names which are similar to those of the forum leaders or the Administration will be deleted. For example, it is unacceptable to register a username of "Dragon Ball-7" given the administrator of this site’s username is "Dragon Ball".
    3. Do not register an obscene or slanderous name. Administration will delete any account created with offensive names.
    4. Do not register an obscene or slanderous avatar/signature. It will be deleted and you will be reprimanded.
    RESTRICTIONS:
    1. Insults towards other members, Admins or Moderators, excessive swearing, cursing and foul language is not allowed. Any member seen behaving in an aggressive manner shall face an immediate ban. Members are equal and anyone with a 'god-complex' will not be tolerated.
    2. Don't request licensed materials, illegal content or pornography.
    3. Avoid typing in capital letters. Typing in caps can be interpreted as "shouting".
    4. Praising of the killing of innocent civilians, ethnic minorities, arguing in favor of or providing links in support of such arguments is emphatically prohibited. Violators of this rule will be banned without delay.
    5. Newly registered members are not allowed to advertise their own sites in signatures until they have a post of count of at least 50. Otherwise, such signatures will be deleted.
    6. Custom Avatars are only available to Community Members and higher. To become a Community Member, you will need to reach 50 posts or more. Avatars are restricted to 80 x 80 for all usergroups excluding Staff and Veterans.
    7. Do not upload, post or otherwise transmit any material that is prohibited by law, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, torturous, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libelous, invasive of another's privacy, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable.
    8. We welcome vibrant and educated discussions. However, we advise personal discussions are kept off our regular forums. Any talk of a personal nature should be taken to private PMs or to external services like MSN Chat, Yahoo Messenger, Skype and so forth.
    9. Do not flood the forum with random long postings that are impossible to read. Do not repetitively post the same thing. Do not post the same topic in multiple forums as all such threads will be removed. Do not double post on an individual thread. An example of what is acceptable and unacceptable when posting is demonstrated below:

      Acceptable:

      Your post
      Someone else's post
      Your post

      Not acceptable:

      Your post
      Your post
      Someone else's post
    10. Avoid posting large images in the forum. Use the gallery for all your image posting and commenting. This is to keep the amount of scrolling down and to keep the board as clean as possible.
    POSTING GUIDELINES:
    1. No junk posting. Give your threads and posts useful content. Posts such as "This is great", "I agree" etc., will be deleted.
    2. When creating or replying to a thread, try to use a descriptive Title. This makes it easier for all to quickly know whether your information is of interest to them. A Title with "Hi" really doesn't mean much.
    3. Please utilize the "Search" feature before creating a new topic, as the same topic may already have been posted and discussed previously.
    4. Please maintain proper conduct when replying to other members. Bad language and misbehavior will not be tolerated at any cost.
    5. Exercise courtesy at all times. Make use of the "Edit" button found next to each post if you wish to edit a comment.
    6. Please read the forum description before posting or opening a new topic, i.e. post in the relevant forum sections. Members should use an appropriate, descriptive title when posting a new topic. Members should use a "normal font" and avoid the excessive use of capital letters.
    7. Members are restricted to start no more than 4 threads a day. Please do not flood the forum with excessive, useless posting.
    8. Inactive threads, which have not been posted in for 14 days or more, should not be revived. They are considered dead.
    9. Please use the Journals for information of personal nature. The forums should only be used for discussions.
    10. Members who post on a regular basis will have the privilege to utilize the Gallery section. Only content which is your own can be uploaded here. Any "leached" content will result in the member being banned without delay.
    11. Advertising in any thread will result in an infraction, no exceptions. You may advertise in your signature and journal only.
    12. Contests are allowed subject to approval by staff.
    13. DO NOT MAKE LIST THREADS! IT WILL BE CONSIDERED SPAM!! Favourite threads are allowed only if you explain as to why it is your favourite.
    14. Please do not pseudo mod. We have Moderators on the forums for a reason, it is not your job to correct other members.
    SIGNATURES:
    • Your main signature image has a maximum size of 500 (width) x 115 (height) pixels, with a maximum file size of 200Kb.
    • 1 userbar is allowed in your signature, the maximum dimensions are 400 (width) x 20 (height) pixels.
      2 userbars are allowed for clan leaders (one extra userbar to show their clan leader status).
    • Text in signatures is limited to 4 lines. Blank lines are also counted towards the text line limit. The max. text size allowed in any signature is size 3.

    The Galaga System

    Below your avatars in the userstats legend you will notice little shields. Each shield represents a post count as listed below:

    = 5 posts
    = 50 posts
    = 100 posts
    = 500 posts
    = 1,000 posts
    = 5,000 posts
    = 10,000 posts
    = 25,000 posts

    Exclamation Anime Online Rules and FAQs

    Junk Posting

    All members please note that Junk Posting is no longer allowed at Anime Online.

    No-one wants to read another members "Junk Posting" and it just clutters up the forums and hides useful information.

    I'm sure many members dislike reading garbage, and so from now on, let's all be responsible members of AO.

    Please only reply or post a new thread if you have something useful to say.

    Posts such as:
    • I agree
    • This rocks
    • Checkout this site.... (link)
    • Anime rules
    • Hello, I'm new.
    • etc..
    Will be deleted and an infraction given.

    Also remember to give your posts and threads meaningful titles. A title of "Help" is not meaningful and does not describe accurately what is contained within a post.

    The staff here are all working very hard to bring you an enjoyable forum with content rich posts. Your co-operation is appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Anime Online Rules and FAQs

    We are trialling the re-introduction of favourite threads. You can now ask about other's favourites, however you MUST EXPLAIN WHY IT'S YOUR FAVOURITE!

    Simply posting a name/title and declaring it's your favourite is nothing more than a list post. List posts are still not allowed. That is, posts that comprise of no explanation as to why you chose a certain favourite.

    Thank you.

    Reviews Section

    The Reviews Section is a high quality area for members to read up on the lastest Anime, Manga, Book and Game Reviews.

    General Rules
    • Do not steal a review from another website! If you are found stealing then you may be banned up to 2 days. Excessive theft may have you banned permanently from Anime Reviews or from the main forums.
    • Do not write just about the story. It's your opinions that we are after.
    • Do not ask questions in your comments. The Reviews Section is a critique, not a discussion forum.

    When submitting a NEW Review:
    • Plan to write around 200 words or more.
    • Feel free to upload images for your review. If you don't, the staff will then upload complimenting images.
    When commenting on an EXISTING Review:
    • Must contain at least 1 full sentence and YOUR OPINIONS. Anything less will result in your comment being deleted.
    • Rationalise your answers. If you think the plot is "cool", then explain why!
    If you are unsure how to write a review, just checkout the existing reviews.

    Thank you.

    Member Safety

    This is to keep you safe and us safe from lawsuits and other stupid stuff.

    High Security Risk To You
    • DO NOT post your full mailing address. (Especially the female members and underage women of the board - this is a good way for a pedophiles that could be acting as a member of the site to find you and do bad things to you). This is a BIG no no. Members we find doing this in their profile will be edited by a staff member.
    • DO NOT post a phone number unless it's a cell phone. This is another way someone can find where you live.
    • DO NOT give out any private info in the blogs or in the profile that is very dangerous to you.
    The Rules
    • No hentai images allowed in profile. If found your profile, it will be locked down and you will not be able to access it.
    • No hatred videos. You are allowed to post videos in your profile BUT nothing relating to racial bashing such as KKK or any other racist organizations.
    • NO POSTING LICENSED ANIME! This is also a big no no. You can post clips of a licensed anime, but thats it.

    To keep you all safe from bad people, remember to follow the rules and DON'T post any private content about yourself EVER. Just a bit of commonsense, that's all.
