About Music, Films, and TV and Rules (UPDATED DEC 3RD)
Welcome to Music, Films and TV!
What exactly can we find here?
A classic form of entertainment! Whether it’s released in cinemas, direct-to-DVD or just shown on television, feel free to share your opinions on movies you've recently watched, your own favourites or any upcoming releases you’re excited to see.
Are you a fan of a show and want to discuss it with some others? Is there an upcoming TV series you’re interested in seeing? Feel free to share it with us here.
From store bought comics to webcomics and even comic strips in the papers, you can discuss your favourite comics, their artists and authors and even just the latest comic news.
We've all got our own musical tastes and with the sheer variety of music available today it's always interesting to share some of your favourites. Be it songs, artists, bands, albums or maybe even musical influences, share it with us here. You can even discuss things like what you're currently listening to or what songs you just can't get out of your head!
Another thing we allow is reviews of any of the items listed above. See a movie and want to share a review? Start a thread. Read a book and want to share a review? Start a thread. The hope is that these start discussions on the reviewed item.
It's out of this world! No, literally it is! Feel free to share with us any story you find fascinating or your favourite fantastic characters - creatures such as werewolves, dragons, vampires or others.
This is where you can dish about all of those fascinating celebrities. What are they doing? Who are they dating? What movie/TV show are they appearing in? What award did they win? What drug are they currently doing? What item did they steal? Who died? All good stuff to be discussed here.
Gone to a play lately and found yourself astounded by the performance? Have a favourite actor or play you love? Share it with us here and tell us if you'd recommend the show.
But what DOESN’T go here?
Television news. Sports. Things that are televised, but are, essentially, real (not counting reality TV shows. We consider these to largely be fake). These are best left to Serious Business.
Anything originating from Japan that might otherwise go here is probably better suited to Land of the Rising Sun.
Self-made media like blogs, videos or songs? Visit Multimedia Creations.
While posting in either Video Games and Technology or Music, Films and TV, please remember that as well as all forum rules applying, an extension of these specific to this subsection are to be respected and followed in the same manner. These subsection rules are listed below. If you have any questions about them, feel free to contact Kaori or Dolce.
Discussion of a show, film, game or artist's fandom is perfectly fine if relevant but going as far as to insult, tease or be unnecessarily aggressive about a fandom will result in a Flaming and Baiting warning or infraction depending on the severity of what has been said. Use some degree of consideration in how you speak about these things.
Multiple consecutive posts are acceptable if your previous post was at least two days ago and you are posting again only to add updates to a fitting topic. "Updates" can mean posting new information that has since been released or simply an opinion on a new episode or addition you have just seen, particularly with view to series threads.
Pokémon anime and/or games
We realise that some of the topics within this section may apply to media forms or franchises that technically belong in their own other respective sections or subforums, including Pokémon (in anime or game form) or other unrelated anime. Brief contribution fitting a thread's topic is fine, but if it derails the thread to more in depth discussion it will be treated as a pointless post and you may be warned or infracted as such.
An example of an acceptable place to mention Pokémon or other anime might be in the thread "What Did You Watch On Television Last?" - posting that you just watched Pokémon is fine, going into what you thought about the episode is not.
It is important to note that moderator discretion is key with these rules and should be respected. Conditions are variable and we will enforce the spirit of the rules through in thread warnings, informal PMs or full warnings and infractions depending on the type and severity of the infringement. If you disagree with how staff have managed the situation, do not argue in the thread or by VMs. Instead, feel free to raise your concerns in private with a moderator of the section via PM. If you are still unsatisfied with how the issue is dealt with, feel free to approach a senior staff member, again in private.
