Battle Forum Rules. (IMPORTANT)
Battle forum rules:
-Before battle verses are posted or both battlers have posted their verses.
-If you aren't casting a vote - do not post at all. Your post will be deleted. (To keep threads clean from unnecessary chit chat)
-And Do not make a thread unless someone has accepted your call out.
-If the battle doesn't start within 3 days or call out is not responded to (in the call out section) - The thread will be removed (Battlers have to start deciding on deadlines).
-No shit talking as well - if you are not an active battler - your threads/posts will be deleted.
-From now on: Battlers are not allowed to "comment" on a voters 'opinion' until the battle has been voted to a conclusion - the only post the battler will/should be making is to up for more votes are to make sure the thread doesn't fade away without being concluded.
No dick riding:
-Newbies are not allowed to vote on battles unless they are currently in a battle (To avoid dick riding)
-If you feel that someone is voting against you for some petty reason - feel free to send a pm to any of the mods and we'll be able to assist as much as we can, take note that we'll assess the problem with an open mind.
Voting made easy:
-Common Battle Categories:
It all begins with understanind the categories - Avoid voting if you are not sure about something.. It complicates things.. And do not front like you know something when you don't - you "punishing" more than yourself by doing that so please ask someone first..
Cleverly executed "disses" incorporating all/most components of a battle verse, namely: Metaphors, wordplay and nameplay - Directed at mocking/demeaning your opponent..
Rhyming more than one syllable.
Comparisons without like or as.
Newbies are not allowed to vote on battles unless they are currently in another a battle. Commenting/freeposting happens after battle votes are concluded.
Please follow these rules and we'll all get along just fine. :wink:
If you have anything to add or do not agree with something.. I'll leave this thread open temporarily for discussion.
