OK, guys, so as of recent it seems that we've had increasing amounts of trouble with trolling in the topics in this forum. Therefore, I'm setting up a specialized list of rules for this forum.
If you violate any of these rules, you will be warned/banned.
1. Do not bring other artists in unnecessarily to a discussion. IE, if we are discussing Christina Aguilera, do not bring in Britney Spears if it is going to be for the purpose of bashing one or the other.
2. In a discussion with another person, do not slag off someone you perceive to be an artist he/she likes in order to retaliate against them. IE: Person A: I didn't like Christina's last album. Person B: Well Britney sucks too!!!!1!!!!1111
3. Do not throw out cutesy rude sayings like "Well you must have heard a different version of that song" or "Well you need to get your ears cleaned out" etc. It's rude, makes you sound like an ass, and generally leads to fighting.
4. If you see a person doing any of the above, PLEASE do not engage them. Doing so means there is a great possibility you will be warned/banned as well. If a person is violating the rules stated above, he/she will be taken care of by the mods, and there is no point in dragging yourself into the problem. Just ignore it, and it will be handled.
5. One big thing that people don't seem to realize is that warnings, etc take place behind the scenes. Just because you haven't seen any action publicly taken doesn't mean that the person hasn't been warned. Thus, please don't quote people breaking rules and say "why hasn't this been handled?" This will get you a warning of your own. Instead, if you think something needs attention and hasn't been handled, please PM me or one of the admins and we will fill you in.
I know a lot of these rules are basically contained within the general rules of Pulse, but violations such as the ones above seem to be the most popular in this forum, so I'm stating them bluntly. You will be warned or banned if you violate these, so please do not complain about it, since it is all spelled out above.
