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

this is a pretty minor request but it is possible to get more smileys cos i've noticed that on other forums they have all the same smileys we have on here but loads more cool ones as well... ?

we're limited on the smiley front since the board is preloaded with the ones you see. i think its only the "essential" faces because they didn't want it getting out of control with moving animals and stuff like that.

Art is a broad and generic term. It shouldn't be only related to MCR anyway. And if it should be then by your argument all MCR art should be on the MCR section.....which would leave the art section empty.

having seen all this stuff about locked topics and stuff being forgotten, I thought I'd let you guys know about an idea I had in what I think was the wrong board sorry about that :/

I'm a member of another forum (not MCR) that has a pinned topic in each board where it might be appropriate called "Quick Question? ask here!"

I'll just quote from the site since they'll explain it more concisely than I can...

"A lot of specific, narrow questions get new threads opened in the hops of a quick response, but this leave lots of dead threads with only 2/3 replies. so if you have a quick qestion that doesn't deserve its own thread, post it here so the sections stay clear and bigger topics stay relevant"

what do you think?

it's not really something that I've noticed needs doing on here, but on the site I pinched it from, it really has helped keep the place clean.

i have noticed that there are quite a few threads in the MCR discussion subforum that are just questions, some that have been asked multiple times or addressed in other threads. i think a "quick question" pinned thread would be really helpful there, and maybe in the MCRmy discussion one, too.

there's a thread in the Member Lounge that's called "quick question..." maybe that could be pinned as well, for people to just ask general things, without having to make a new thread?

also, considering there's a lot of stuff the guys do outside the band, we could set up a "side projects" board, with threads for Leathermouth, Umbrella Academy, Gerard's misc. artw, that mention of G and Mikey's comic book collaboration etc. - to keep the MCR discussion thread about MCR and helping define what belongs where?

:)

I see the quick questions thread and it is pinned but in order for the idea to work it needs to be marked as an announcement on this forum for it to be in all sections I think...

I think just a FAQ would be helpful but the trouble is people are lazy and don't read anyway, so even though it's a good idea, people are people and will continue to ask questions that have been answered over 100 times.

READING IS GOOD, PEOPLE.

I thought there were multiple "Quick Questions" threads for each section so that people could post quick questions that could be categorized in those sections. =/

i guess maybe the main post could include- you know what, i was basically going to just describe FAQ the long way round...

although I had an idea this morning where we could make like, an ''MCR dictionary' where you can search for common words in in-jokes like "w*y", "unicorn", "keeper of-" or whatever and it answers what the joke is about or where it came from. it would be a mammoth task but it'd be quite fun to collaborate with everyone on it...

am I the only one who thinks the Member Lounge should be a Protected Forum if you're not logged in?

there just seems to be alot of personal info/discussions in there which is just kinda laid bare for anyone who wants to casually sift through it at might not actually be part of the site...

the facebook/twitter thing particularly

or am I just being paranoid? :P

that's a good point. especially with the facebook thing.

i guess if people want to share it publicly they can have it in their sig, but if you only want it for site members, there's no real way of doing it rather than PMing everyone :P

Hmm, you've got a good point. I think the only person who can change which forums are/aren't protected is Tina.

personally, i'm a fan of smaller images in signatures.

it sucks that you lose detail in something you want in the sig, but at least it means people don't just take advantage of extra space and fill the place up.

some forums are unreadable without rules on signatures

For sure small images should be used in signatures.

It just sucks when the image height is fine but the length is too long. Like my killjoy characters. I had to split the image. =[

I just wanted to add this baby in my siggy:

partymini.png

But I can't cuz it's over the length limit by 92. =<

actually, yeah i think the length could be increased. it's the more the height of the sig that becomes irritating to scroll through.

also, I'm noticing alot of threads being started for selling/trading merch. do you think we should start a pinned/official(*ahem* "Rmy official" :P) thread for this with some rules/regs in the first post? like the ticket selling post in the tour section?

I agree. I understand a smaller image limit in siggys but this 8 lines is pissing me off. instead of lines can we have a character count?

like must not exceed 500 characters or something.

charcater counting may suck if you're using bb code in your sig though - links etc.
