Technical Guidelines

  • The Shout Out Thread will go up to 100 pages.
  • The Shout Out Thread will be stickied.
  • When a new Shout Out Thread is created, it will have the title "The Shout Out Thread" (with nothing appended to it). The first post will compose only of the rules, with all colors and links preserved.

Rules and Guidelines for New Members

Welcome to the Shout Out Thread! The SOT, as it is commonly abbreviated, is an area for casual discussion of all topics. Here are some guidelines to follow while in the SOT.

  • Be respectful. This applies not only all across OMF, but in life.
  • Do not spam. While this is an area for casual conversation, it should contribute to the flow of conversation.
  • No flaming. No talking about people behind their backs. No bashing other forum members, either individually or as a group.
  • Don't talk about drugs, alcohol or porn.
  • Avoid posting intimate details about your personal life.
  • Cursing is discouraged. Do not dodge the filter.
  • Just because you are new to the SOT does not make you a second class citizen. If someone tries to bully you or make you feel like you do not belong, please report the incident.
  • To hop into the conversation, just say something or reply to someone. It does not have to be profound.
  • No inappropriate pictures, hentai, porn, or other similar content.

Rules and Guidelines for those who Regularly Visit The Shout Out Thread

I will preface this with a history lesson. Over the years, the SOT has been closed multiple times. We have tried changing the title in order to remove the stigma. We have changed the rules in order to make things more appropriate. Every time this issue comes up, the staff holds a discussion about whether the SOT should exist. And to be honest, the support for it is dwindling.

The Shout Out Thread has the ability to be a great place for casually discussing diverse subjects. Do not ruin it.

With that in mind, here are the rules focused at regular members. If you need to brush up on the more general rules, look at the "New Members" section, just above.

  • Be respectful. This applies across all of OMF, and life.
  • Be welcoming to new posters. You aren't better than anyone just because you've posted in an off topic thread on a manga forum before.
  • No spamming. Posts should contribute to the flow of conversation. [Smiley posts are permitted but not encouraged].
  • No flaming. No talking about people behind their backs. No bashing other forum members, either individually or as a group.
  • Be careful if you're being sarcastic. Make sure that it isn't taken the wrong way.

The Shout Out Thread should be an enjoyable experience for everyone. Do your part to ensure that it is.

At the rate they fill up nowadays it might not be a bad thing.

 

But I guess it really doesn't make a big difference in the long run.

Doesn't help that pages on IPB are twice as long as vB.

I'm really asking. Sarcasm seems to be disallowed too.

It used to not be okay to swear but I could have sworn in recent years that rule was retired.

 

The rule above might just be because thats been copied pasted for years.

Biting SoT is not swearing pika.

Well, technically speaking there's no notice saying OMF is +16, so nothing's stopping people under 16 from joining the site. By that logic there should be such people and they could very well see this thread.

 

If that rule was really retired, I'd say it's because the site's getting old. I mean, it is nowhere near as active as it once was and there are a number of old members somewhat still active; I believe that affects the newer joiners. There isn't much  to share between a 12 year old and a 25 year old.

 

On a side note; looking back, a good number the people I knew around when I first joined were under 16.

Suuuure, my little cousin(15) plays Pokemon Go, so do almost all my friends way back from middle/high school(26). I would LOVE to see them talk about Pokemon.

 

They also watch anime and read manga and stuff. Oh I would be delighted to see my little cousin and my friends from way back when exchange their opinions about anime and manga.

I'm going to shave. Hair on my legs makes me itchy and I like to have smooth skin. Plus I don't like doing what things or people tell me to do. I wish I a boss, bossing people around , scaring them...
