    Default Inter-site drama

    Hi everybody,

    Hope the summer (at least in the Northern Hemisphere) is treating everyone well. I wanted to bring an issue to everyone's attention.

    Recently, users have been "importing" drama from other forums to Bulbagarden. Whether that's talking behind someone's back, trolling their VM page, or doing anything else to antagonize them, it's not nice. More than that, though, it's disruptive to the Bulbagarden community.

    Going forward, people who bring drama from other forums to Bulbagarden will be at risk for receiving a 10-point infraction for trolling-an automatic two-day ban. We understand that there can be conflict and that the internet is not always a perfectly harmonious place. But whatever issues you have with others, please leave them "at the door" when you come on Bulba.

    If you have any questions about this, you can direct them to me or post in this thread. Again, I hope the summer continues to treat everyone well.

    Thanks for your understanding,
    evkl and the rest of the Bulbagarden team

    From my understanding, users here have been having drama on these forums over discussions which have taken place on other websites.

    They certainly can join here, thats not the issue of this announcement. The announcement just means to leave off site drama at the other site, and dont bring it here to Bulbagarden.

    Would you mind clarifying what you mean? Yes, the forum is open to everyone. We're only asking that our members keep off-site drama, well, off-site.

    Edit: or pretty much what minimag and Neoflare have stated above.
    And I don’t care if I lose
    Because my heroes did too
    They shouted court should be adjourned
    Because the jury are fools
    And the judge can’t decipher his left from his right
    Or his right from his wrong

    We've been getting reports of intersite incidents for a while now. A few mods have noticed things of their own, as well.

    Im not 100% sure what you mean by this, but...well...if drama is obviously being carried over from another site, then this new rule would apply. For example, if a user was being bullied on another site, and the bully and the victim start getting mad at each other on this site, and causing drama because of it, I think this rule would apply.

    ^ There are a couple examples that I know of. A certain user on another forum got banned on that forum, and they complained about it a lot on here, causing a lot of drama.

    So you are saying you can't bad-mouth other sites. Most people join similar sites like pokemon forums because they do not like the old one.

    He means you cannot get mad at someone on these forums over events which happened on other websites.

    Basically, what happens elsewhere, stays elsewhere. You don't carry conflicts over to Bulbagarden, or create tension/negative circumstances over something that doesn't have its origins here.

    No, although we would of course prefer that rather than bad-mouthing other sites you simply don't mention them at all. Basically what the announcement means is this:

    User A and User B have a history of fighting on at least one other Pokemon forum. Both users join BMGf. If that fighting, which originated on another forum, carries over here, then both users (and anyone else who decides to join and continue the fight in "support' of one side or the other) can look forward to a 2-day ban. If it continues after the bans have expired then they can, of course, look forward to a more severe punishment.
