    Default Appreciation discussions and thread titles. Please read!

    I'm very heartened by the fact that the first batch of new threads on the forum are 'Appreciation' threads as it shows a lot of folks like the positive new direction. Posting anything that isn't 'appreciative' in those threads will be considered trolling and trollers will be permanently banned first time out, no warnings given.

    That being said, please feel free to start threads that *do* allow for differences of opinions, but be mindful of the new forum rules regarding behavior on the forums. If you are not contributing to the discussion in a meaningful fashion, either by derailing threads, repeating the same opinion ad nauseum, or poking those with opposing views with sharp verbal sticks, you will be banned.

    I cannot stress enough - this does not mean you cannot have a negative opinion on a subject. You just need to express that opinion in a mature fashion and not beat people over the head with it. If you dislike something (or even if you like it), please provide sound reasons for your opinions and discuss it in a civil manner.

    To further clarify - An 'appreciation' thread is a place to go to post positive things you like about the subject, be it pictures, discussion, etc. However, what an 'appreciation' thread is not? It's not a refuge or an excuse to post entire discussions on comic book issues or previews and the like without opposing opinions. For example, a five page preview is released for a book and you like how a character is portrayed in a panel or two, feel free to toss them into the Appreciation thread. You want to discuss the entire preview? Make a new thread about it and an open discussion will follow.

    Appreciation threads are not a private members only club to exclude people with opposing opinions from expressing their viewpoint, and there will not be two separate threads, one for people who liked Issue 30 and those who want to discuss it with all points of view. This forum will not be segregated in such a fashion.

    Also take note of the rule that says do not use 'discussion,' 'thread' or 'official' in any thread titles. I've had to edit a large number of those today as we settle in, but if folks continue to ignore this rule, warnings will be issued (believe me, I don't want to issue any warnings!)

    Roger that!
    Though much is taken, much abides; and though
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are,
    One equal temper of heroic hearts,
    Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
    To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

    --Lord Alfred Tennyson--

    In that regard, could we please drop the "The" from the front of the Steve Trevor Awesome thread.

    regards

    UPDATE!!!

    Appreciation threads have gotten so long that they are (in part) causing the forums to crash and/or slow down to a crawl.

    As such, many of them across a lot of forums have been locked and new threads started.

    That being said, it is time to stop with the petty 'my longer thread proves my favorite hero/couple/team is best' nonsense. Not only is it childish, but spamming these threads is just causing the same problem all over again.

    So post with moderation, post multiple pictures and links in one message and not just one picture per post, and don't just copy and paste all of the pics from the previous thread.

    Spamming of Appreciation threads in this forum will be deleted as a preventative to further technical difficulties for the entire board.

    Use some common sense, folks and enjoy and celebrate your favorites with moderation!
