Make sure to use your searchbutton or be willing to go back a few pages to see if something has alreadybeen posted so that the information isn't repeated time and time again! Forexample, when you see a thread discussing MCR’s latest video and you want toshare your favorite part, please post in the existing thread rather thanstarting a new one. Asking questions isn't necessarily a bad thing; however,please use the search button first. Do not post the same thread in more thanone forum. This will all keep the board less cluttered and help things to runmore smoothly. Please post topics in their appropriate forums. If youposted a thread (that doesn't belong in the forum it was posted in) and it hassuddenly disappeared, chances are it has been moved to the appropriate forum.Please look there and please DO NOT re-post a moved thread because you cannotfind it. Also, feel free to refer back to the forum descriptionsabove when posting topics. If you aren’t sure where to post, come back here andre-read the info. Choose the forum that MOST relates to your topic. 3. Member Relationships: A lot of people here have become good friends. Some peopleare on here every day and have relationships outside of the boards. Do notexpect to make friends over night. Don’t be afraid of posting or askingquestions. We’re all here for the same reasons. Also, don’t hesitate to contactthe board admin/mods. They’re here to answer your questions and make thismessage board a great place for all fans to hang out. If you stick aroundthough, you'll make friends and participate in a lot of fun activities. **That said, please be extra cautious giving out anypersonal information. Additionally, do not post anyone else’s personal/ privateinformation on the boards.** 4. Respect Board Members: Please be respectful of others. It is ok to have an opinion;however, it is not an invitation to bash someone. Disagreement is OK.Controversy is OK. Everyone can be respectful when they disagree. There is noneed to get nasty over a disagreement. Keep in mind that people of all agesread these boards. Some people may kid around and be sarcastic, but I thinkpeople can generally decipher the difference. Provoking them will not solveanything and if they are bothersome to everyone (and its obvious), they will betaken care of. Report ANY thread you think a moderator should look at.Sometimes the board admin/mods might miss a thread. If you find spammers,obnoxious threads, or anything you think should be reported, send the mods/admina message or report the thread (see below for more info on reporting posts). 5. Personal Attacks and Trolls: Sometimes, disagreements can turn into personal conflicts. This canbe classified as something going beyond a minor disagreement and it turninginto something that can be handled outside of the boards. Please, try to avoidthese, or they will be handled otherwise. However, if someone makes fun of youbecause you didn't read the above listed advice, that is NOT considered apersonal attack. There is a difference. If it needs to be more clearly definedlater, that can be arranged. 6. Closed/DeletedThreads: Please be aware that if you don't follow the rules, there will beconsequences. It’s up to the discretion of the board admin and moderators.Threads/posts can get deleted, edited, or closed when deemed appropriate. Mostlikely there is an explanation why a thread has been closed; however, if youare unsure why one of your topics gets closed or deleted, contact the admin/modthat closed it. Threads/posts will ALMOST never be disposed of for an opinion.However, the option is always there for a thread to be deleted/edited(especially if it goes against the board regulations). 7. Reporting Posts:Do you see a post/thread with content that you think violates some of the ruleslisted above? Most of the time a board admin or mod will catch it. If it’s notclosed or handled quickly, feel free to report the post. Although they try, itis not possible for admin/mods to view every post on every page all the time.Any help you can provide in helping us solve these problems is greatlyappreciated. When reporting a post, please make sure to include a descriptionwhy the admin/mod needs to address the thread or post. It will help them knowwhat they are looking for instead of reading through pages of posts. If thereare certain members causing trouble in a particular thread, make sure youinclude their usernames and why you think they should be reported. **To report a post, use the Report button on the bottom-lefthand side of each post. If you can’t find it and still want to report thethread, copy the thread link and send it in a message to the boardadmin/mods.** 8. Signature Guidelines: For more information on signature guidelines, click here. 9. Spelling and Grammar: When posting, please make sure to double check your spelling.Additionally, please refrain from using text/AIM speak such as, "i wnt 2tlk b4 tmrrw" or "idk y u r tlking lyke that". It's ok to usesome terms like "lol", "bff" or other common abbreviations,but please don't compose a whole post like that. We appreciate your input andwant to make sure that everyone can read it. Also, please don't use a large font or bright colors as yourdefault posting settings. It's ok to use once in a while, but can make yourposts difficult for members to read. 10. FileTrading/ Bootlegs: Discussion of how and where to obtain bootleg (illegallyrecorded) audios or videos is not allowed. Direct links to such files will beremoved promptly and threads will be closed if it gets out of hand. Please keepsuch discussion segregated to private messages. If you're unsure whether or notsomething is a bootleg, here's a simple rule of thumb - if someone sitting inthe audience recorded it, it's a bootleg. Officially recorded aired ontelevision, radio, etc are perfectly acceptable. If you're still unsure, do nothesitate to contact a mod asking whether or not the audio/video you'd like topost is an illegal recording. This is both out of respect for MCR and any otherperformers, as well as to conform to all applicable copyright laws. 11. Becoming a Board Mod: If you are interested in applying for a board mod position (or suggesting another member), please PM the board Admin for more information. You can also email your application to tinamcrofficial@gmail.com with the following info: 1. how do you think you can contribute to the MCRmy community 2. what qualities do you posess that will make a good mod 3. do you have any mod experience? 4. other fun facts about yourself Only the board Admin has the ability to add new mods. Any threads about mods (ie suggestingmembers, bashing mods, etc) will be deleted. If you have concerns about theboards, either post them in the Help section or address it with anotheradmin/mod. 12. Respect BoardMods and Administrators Mods and Admins are only doing their jobs to enforce rules.They are volunteers that are passionate about the community and help it to run. Disrespect towards mods will not be tolerated. However, if you feel they haveacted harshly, please contact me privately and i will pass evaluate the issue.The mods are very nice people and if you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact them. They are full of knowledge. If you have any questions, feel free to contact one of your Administrators or Moderators.

Improvements To The Board

Recommended Posts

Killjoys!

Now that the board has been up for awhile, i wanted to get some of your comments on how to improve this place?

For example, are their forum sections that need to be modified, are their rules i need to clarify or add?

what would make this place friendlier/ more welcoming for you?

Are we, the mod team addressing your needs/ concerns? Do you think we need more mods?

Any and all feedback is appreciated. Thank you so much!

I'm being annoying here, probably, but a lot of the posts on this forum are back-and-forth things that you don't see coming. Some people also might think single-line posts are too short... Do you think it would be worthwhile to put in a little Shoutbox or something at the top of the page? (I'm not sure what others think about it. It could be just me!)

I also think the "Not MCRmy" section is a bit confusing. "Randomness" seems more along the lines of "Forum Games" to me, which is probably where everything of the sort (Continue the song, count the posts, etc) seems to go. Either that, or we might need our own "Forum Games" section, haha? Perhaps there should be a Roleplay section, too, but then... I don't know how many 'Roleplay' threads there are.

The mods seem to be doing a great job right now, and aside from me being picky or questioning, everything's great! If you think the forums are good and nobody else thinks my ideas are good ones, they're probably right. Either way, this place is awesome to hang out in. :3

I think switching out inactive mods with new ones would be good. We don't NEED constant moderation but there are threads that get created enough that could be taken care of faster. I suggest Marie as mod because she is everything a mod is/should be. zombiesereande.

aand I think also think NOT MCR and Randomness are the same thing, so maybe combine those into one? They have no real difference.

ETA

yeah. the mods have been good , just notice that a few have been working harder than others?

I agree with combining the Non-MCRmy boards, simply because they are very similar.

I want to note that the mods are very good with merging topics when there are several of the same subject. It must get tiring, but they're very quick to it, which helps to keep the boards organized. That's basically one of the only things that is frustrating, when users don't search before opening a new topic, because I've noticed some users have gotten negative rep for redirecting people to an already existing thread.

i also think the two non-mcrmy boards could be improved. since "randomness" seems to be mostly forum games, it could be renamed to that. there could also be different subcategories within non-mcrmy, eg. "other bands," "tv," "news," "personal help," etc. etc. but that might get too confusing and detailed.

otherwise, i really love the forums here, and all of the mods have been awesome.

I agree with rachelescent. I think merging the 'Non-MCRmy Discussion' and 'Randomness' would create too much confusion. They are probably the two most frequented sub-forums, therefore people post in different threads all the time, meaning threads would get pushed back to the second and third pages of the sub-forum really quickly (if that made any sense?). It would make more sense to make more specific sub-forums (e.g. games, bands/tv/films).

I think the moderators are doing a great job, I really can't praise them enough. If there is a problem, it's normally seen to rather quickly.

One thing I have noticed (this isn't really a problem) is that there are never any moderators online until about 2pm GMT because the majority of moderators are based in the US. I usually come online before I go out, say 10am GMT, and if there is a problem like spam or an inappropriate thread, it can take a while for it to get sorted. Please don't think I'm complaining about the moderators; I understand that they need to sleep, and I don't expect them to stay up until stupid O'Clock just to check here! It may be worth getting a moderator from somewhere in Europe, who would be online whilst the US is sleeping.

Other than that, I honestly can't think of anything right now. This is a great forum, and I'm just grateful that MCRmy 2.0 works!

I'll address this. i agree it would be extremely helpful if people are more specific when naming their topics

I think the two "general discussion" threads should be remained to something less confusing

I think Member Lounge and Other Discussions are still pretty much the same thing. Possibly just consolidate them as one General Discussions section and add a Gaming section for all of the game & spam threads?

I also think the two "General Discussion" boards under My Chemical Romance and MCRmy are causing confusion. There are misplaced topics posted there constantly. It would be clearer if they were named something like "MCR Discussion" and "MCRmy Discussion"

You should probably pm a mod directly, or ask in the rules section, rather than here. This thread doesn't have much to do with what is against the rules or not, and the mod who deleted your thread may not see your post here.

My guess is that video would probably be inappropriate, I can't imagine the discussion about it going anywhere good.

I don't understand how a question like can be asked. MCR is against violence , even if that video is in jest, to upload it would be in bad taste

I'm not really sure this is necessary, but I remember on the old boards there was a 'Newbie' subforum. There's been a few threads like that that I've seen around, so maybe there could be a place for new members to introduce themselves? Maybe a pinned thread in the Members Lounge.

I agree. An Introductions sticky or subforum could be useful.

It was reported, and I deleted it because its inappropriate, and it violates the personal life rule because it doesn't have to do with them being in the band.

More of a question than suggestion, but what happened to the points system and prizes from completing missions like the old board had?

Will that be coming back?

I don't mind the avtar size limit. Having ones too much would make the boards awkward,

I think everyone really hates the size limits on pictures, it should atuomatically resize the picture, or reduce the quality until it meets requirements. Also i would like to upload pictures from my computer when replying, rather than having to find one on the internet. (like, be able to upload a picture from my desktop in this post)

You can, just click 'Use Full Editor' and underneath the box where you type, there should be an option to attach pictures from your computer :) However, it's limited to 500k per user, which for me was only five or six photos.
