The OneManga Battle Rules


  • Be Respectful. No compromises. No exceptions. It's the number one rule at OMF. Obviously people will not always see eye to eye. Discussions often lead to heated debates. A disagreement of opinions is not an excuse to attack a person’s character/intelligence/life. Be respectful, courteous and levelheaded. Don’t make posts just for the sake of being rude. And absolutely NO derogatory remarks when it comes to race or sexual orientation, either directed at another poster or character.
  • No Joke Threads. Basically this means that when opening a battle thread for certain characters those characters need to taken seriously. As in they need to have some type of fighting ability that can actually be discussed. If the thread, or characters involved in the thread, have no reason for being there other than a joke then the thread will be closed.
  • No Bashing. This goes along with “Be Respectful”. This means:
    • No bashing people. This includes any single person and/or group/race of people.
    • No bashing manga/characters. It's one thing to point out why you don't like a particular manga/character but quite another if it's an all out bashing without no coherent reason.
    • This includes PMs that bother people.
  • No Chat Speak. This is a forum where members can carry on discussions about topics that interest them. It’s not an IM session or a chatbox, so please don’t treat it as such. Use proper English (or as close as possible for those who aren’t native English speakers) grammar, spelling and punctuation. We won’t jump all over you for every little thing, but if you make a habit of pOStiNg l1Ke tHiS, then expect to have someone say something to you about it.
  • No Spamming/No Picture Spamming. Spam is any post that doesn't contribute to the discussion. For example, posting just to say “Yeah!” or “I agree with this!” is considered spam. Excessive spamming will not be allowed and any posts will be deleted.
  • No Trolling. Trolling is just randomly posting with nothing to say.
  • No Horse Race Announcer. We can see if character X or Y is winning or if they're tied in the polls; no need to state the obvious.
  • No Fighting. Don’t fight with other members, and definitely don’t start fights with the staff. Seriously, it’s not worth it and no one will end up happy, least of all you. Any problems you have can be solved with calm and polite conversation. If you have a question or wish to bring up a topic with the staff that you don’t wish other posters to see, then use the Private Forum. That’s what it’s there for.
  • No Flaming/Flame Baiting. Flaming is attacking someone. Very simple, if you're respectful and don't get into fights, you won't need to worry about it. Flame Baiting is making statements that try to get them to respond back at you with derogatory statements. It's punished just as severely as flaming itself.
  • This is a PG-13 board. OM has made it a point to make this site as family friendly as possible. This also means there is to be no talk of rape, implied rape, drugs, or implied drug use. No string of expletives. If you can't articulate without cursing you should rethink your vocabulary. Please don’t try getting around the word filter in place by using alternate or foreign language characters, either. Be mature about what you’re submitting.
  • Don't be Spoilerific. Some users may not be caught up with the current chapters of a manga or know all there is so far about a character - therefore, do not discuss anything that may "spoil" the users. If you want to discuss spoilers, take the talk to the appropriate thread. Breaking this rule will result in infractions. By the way, anything over a month old does not count as a spoiler.
  • No Duplicate Accounts. That means one account per person. There's really no need for anyone to have more than one account anyway. We're not going to go off on you if you have multiple accounts (we understand about siblings) but just know that we're watching, and we know. If you are banned for other reasons and you create a duplicate account to get around the ban, then both accounts will be permanently banned.
  • No Advertising. Now, just to clarify. This doesn’t mean all forms of advertising are banned. Members are still allowed to put a link in their signature to the polls and garner support for a certain character that way. But sending mass amounts of PMs and VMs to members to get them to vote for a character is not allowed. Also, "campaigning/advertising" in any of the threads in the discussion boards is not acceptable. If you are caught doing this not only will your vote be taken away you will possibly be barred from participating in any future OMCBs.
