Hey all, welcome to the Pokémon Manga & Other Media Rules and Guidelines thread. To reduce some of the clutter and disorder, we moderators of the section are here to announce the new rules and guidelines for this section.
This post will contain the rules of this section, of which you will be warned or infracted for if broken.
The rules for the Pokémon Manga & Other Media section are as follows:
1. Image size limit (Incoherent/Unreadable Post)
Images (such as scans or promotional art, for example) that exceed 700 pixels in either dimension should be under a spoiler tag.
Here is a breakdown of some of the Forum Rules and how they would be applied in Pokémon Manga & Other Media:
1. Copyright Violation
Please see Common Infractions and How to Avoid Them by @Wolverine to see breakdowns of some of the more common infractions (Wrong/Banned Topic, Pointless Post, and Flaming & Baiting).Members may not request or provide help to illegally view copyrighted content or play ROMs. YouTube and similar links are allowed, except YouTube links to full pokémon episodes or movies (in part or whole). Mentioning fan translation in general is permitted, but not specific translation groups or projects. Finally, when putting someone else's fanworks in your forum or blog post, you should at least note that it is not yours and if possible credit the creator.
Posting direct links to full episodes, games or chapters, and presenting other people's fanwork as yours, is a severe violation, barring exceptional circumstances.
This means Posting images of, providing links or downloads of, and asking for scanlations. Members may post snippets and previews of manga volumes, but they may not request or provide help to view full content illegally.
If you have any questions about the forum-specific rules or how whole-forum rules would be applied to Pokémon Manga & Other Media, please contact any Pokémon Manga & Other Media moderator.
