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

410 posts in this topic

I wouldn't mind if we switched out inactive mods with members who would be more active.

I'm not blaming the mods for having lives. Laurie has done a fantastic job, she should get some kind of recognition perhaps. But there are members who are willing to put in the time and can.

I do miss the MCRmy board specific missions. Well, at least the old boards were seen as the official street team, while I don't know if these new boards are just a board or the street team. I liked those missions and points and prizes. I always tried to do all the missions! (I still do the ones that get posted by MCRmy on twitter and stuff)

idk if this can be done but the limits on the avatar and sig size are ridiculously small.

I asked about the siggy image size in another topic before. =<

It's a real hassle to split up an image because it's a little bigger than the size limit.

Maybe the avatar sizes should be a little bigger? I believe most avatars are made to be 100x100. Personally, I make 'em 98x98. :P

I think some kind of notification when someone quotes you would be cool. I don't like flipping back and forth to threads I casually posted in to see if anyone replied to my post specifically.

I really wish there wasn't so many different forums on this board, it makes keeping track on different thread a real pain in the ass.

I've given up on trying to navigate through them all and now I only use the "View New Content" page :mellow:

I hate that so much. Avatar and Sig limits are good.

I'm happy we get to have avatars and signatures at all on these boards. It's so fancy compared to TSN.

You can. Go to your settings--->Notification Options---->"Notify me when somebody quotes my post" (choose e-mail, PM, Inline Notification or Mobile)

If you choose inline notification, it will create a little pop-up on your screen when you're on the boards immediately when somebody quotes your post.

Oh I'm not saying the limit should be made huge. I just think it'd be better if they were a little bigger. I think the avatar size should go from 90x90 to 100x100 because I believe that is the default size avatars are made.

As for the signature size, from what I've seen around other forums, people like to make a kind of "block signature".

example.gif

Like this.

I find 300 pixels not wide enough to make one of these "block signatures". I think 500 would be better. The height I'm only a little iffy with because it's the same height as an avatar. I wouldn't make it more than 150.

Edit: I just realized that I got the dimensions reversed.

It's 100 width x 300 height.

Yeah, no, I don't think that works. =/

This is the signature limit for pictures:

test.gif

I've maybe seen one signature like that my whole life. Maybe the dimensions were meant to be 100 height x 300 width ?

Ehh, even so, I think it should be 100(or 150) height x 500 width.

The avatar limit is actually due to the template of the board. I'd hesitate to make it larger. As for sigs, it makes the board a lot easier to read if there aren't photo after photo stacked on top of each other.

Point System- this board doesn't have a point system. The reason we moved to this tumblr/ message board system was because TSN had A LOT of issues. Tumblr has more freedom in that its not a closed system. MCRmy that wants to just drop by and complete missions could. Its VERY easy to update. Also, its really expensive to run on a street team system like TSN.

Understood.

Is there any way to make it so users are able to see what posts of theirs were given positive/negative rep? Kinda like the quote notification?

Also, are there any plans for sub-forums in the future? Like a music sub-forum in the Entertainment section? Or are there not enough topics on the subject to make it necessary for sub-forums?

I like knowing so much on who is giving you rep. like what posts and what not, like stated of above.

and I'm glad we have a new mod!

But I still think that getting rid mods who haven't been active, should be replaced by more willing members like Marie (zombieserande) and sexy. They're everything a mod should be like Laurie and droprgedagger lady

I think i read somewhere in this thread that there should be a section so newbies can introduce themselves. I know we have that one thread where everybody introduces themselves, but it seems a bit cluttered and a section dedicated just for that would make it easier. People could make their own threads when they first join and we welcome them and what not. idk just a thought~

Understood.

i agree with everything in this post

another forum i'm on has both of these, and it's really great.

the sub-forums will make the place a bit more organized.

could we possibly lose the, "No posts about self- harm allowed!" from the description to members lounge?

it bothers me.

1, It's already included in the rules and has a separate section where it stated again (with poor help materials) and is a pointless and redundant statement. We know. We get it. We agree.

2, makes us all sound like three kinds of people, psycho attention seekers or seriously disturbed people or wounded teens.

3, It just is such a negative thing to include when you want people to feel "good" and post and meet new people

if I was that on another forum, I'd leave the board after I read that.
