The Captain Gamer Forum Rules

Welcome to the forum dedicated to  the Captain Gamer mediums! Here we can talk about everything that's come to mind when reading the story Digital Defender, or the comic strip OOC. This forum is very open to debate, but of course, it is a civil debate fought with fact and tact, and not with flame. The rules are as follows...

1) No spam - An excellent treat on camping trips, but not so welcome in discussion. Posting randomly is likely just to take up space. People will like you more if you join in a discussion, or even if you started your own serious Thread!

2) Play nice - We're all likeminded individuals who respect each other, so no one person will be nudged out of the way for no good reason. In addition, we can all watch ourself and resolve conflict without setting the forum ablaze. Right?

This also includes knowing the difference between disagreement and antagonism, or burning somebody because they made a comment which may have gone beyond your sense of humor. After you make a post with any bit of anger attached, stop, breathe, breathe again if need be, and look at what you wrote. If that really isn't how you think, or you really aren't that angry any more, you can save friendships by rewriting something more agreeable.

Finally, not only do I want people to play nice, I want people to BE nice. What I mean is that tossing out obscenities and insults everywhere will not promote a friendly environment that anybody can participate. If your style is littered with passive-aggressive insults and obscenity, I ask that you reconsider, since these types of things really are not necessary and you can make a point and make it strong WITHOUT resorting to these things... no matter HOW angry you get when typing.

3) Make sure your thread is open for discussion -  Though I've carved out plenty of starting threads, if you feel there's a topic worth its own thread, go right ahead. If you have a really interesting insight, consider whether it's worth its own thread or could just be pitched into one of the current discussions.

4) No asking about future plot/characters - As much as I love curiosity and speculation, direct questions like these, I'm afraid, are a little off-limits. The only way you're going to find out about future characters and plots is by reading the updates as they come. You can ask, just to clarify, but all you'll get from me are sealed lips.

Those are pretty much the bare-bones basics of what this forum is about. If you can think of anything else, post away and good ideas will be added in for future updates to the list.

5) Constructive criticism is encouraged - If there's anything off about a chapter that you would like to point out in a civilized and helpful manner, please do so! Be it an error with spelling or grammar, or an inconsistency, I personally enjoy hearing these things to better my craft. Rule 2 applies here, mind you. Forum Index -> Captain Gamer
