REMINDER.
Post By Tamoo. 28/07/09, 03:41 pm

We have been receiving complaints about the constant off-topicness


I advise you all to read the rules again
http://cosplaynewzealand.forumotion.com/announcements-and-updates-f1/rules-update-30-03-09-t52.htm


Or please take note of this:

Quote :
No off-topic posts.
The only place you can be off-topic in is in the random sub-forum. Please note the bold there - it is important, and the amount of off-topic that has been taking place elsewhere is really getting to some of our members. For example, if the thread is about bananas and you start talking about types of Swiss cheese; we will not be pleased.


Please, no more going off the tangent. Us mods will now be more strict with trying to uphold this rule.


I have also been noticing one-on-one conversations, so please refrain from breaking that rule as well:

Quote :
No one-on-one conversations.
This is when you continuously to post in reply to another person - and ignore the other members' posts. If you feel compelled to start a one-on-one conversation, take it to our PM system, or any instant messenger. When you start these one on one conversations, it is really hard for people to intervene and post their own relevant message - and nobody really wants to go through pages of you and your friend and I'm sure you don't want people "eavesdropping" on your own personal conversation!

Just a query on the one-on-one conversation,
If only one person has information relative to the thread, is one-on-one still unacceptable?

That is fine. But if its constantly only to one single person, we would prefer it if its condensed to one post or taken up to PM then added to the thread in one post.

You know how we had a chatbox on the site a while ago? Maybe we should try it again and suggest people use that if they don't want to/can't be bothered taking the convo elsewhere?

I would also just like to remind people to refrain from Double Posting.

Double Posting is when you post twice successively. We're alright with double posting if it's for a good purpose, like reviving a thread or announcing something that people will need to see but if you're going to just add something to a somewhat recent post of yours please just edit it in using the Edit button located at the top of your posts.

What if it's like, slightly off-topic with like ... five people? OTL;; I think we're doing that in our KHR cosplay thread OTL;;

Oh, and if any of you notice I'm going off topic, tell me over MSN, I tend to not notice Dx. (Or I notice but try to add in something that is on topic too >___>)

...Five? Wow. I feel bad for doing Mafia double posts, even though it's allowed OTL;;

The offtopic-ness doesn't annoy me unless it's like five or six posts (or more) in a row that's by two people (like the one-on-one posts).

Yeah, any posts more then 5 and its just gets too excessive. It doesn't matter how many people are in it, offtopic is offtopic.
If its one-on-one they can take it to PM. If its by more then a few then they can go create a thread in the random section about it.
Its been getting out of control, offtopicness makes it hard to keep up with relevant posts, organise or even post with an ontopic post.

If you guys notice a thread going offtopic, or someone double posting, that the mods haven't seen yet, either remind the person/people posting or PM a mod please.

Also guys dont be afraid to contact the moderators for any issues you have with the forums. We don't bite =3

Yeah~
Could we try once more? Then mods can tell people to go chat there instead of spamming threads with conversation~ ^^

I personally can't see the harm in putting it back - even if no one uses it, it's at the bottom of the page so it's out of the way.

To add to what Aura has said: If you guys ever feel too shy or uncomfortable PMing a moderator about a post, click on the "!" button in the triangle at the top right of the post in question, and you can report it without having to contact one of us directly if you don't want to. :)

Jess speaks truth~!

Use the report button if you don't feel comfortable with PMing a mod. :3

I'm going to try to check the reports every day. I've also just updated the "Reasons for Reporting" bit so that things like Offtopicness are available.

When reporting, the text box is for you to add details about why you've reported the post and to explain why if you selected Misc. as your reason. :3
