So you want to talk about anime right? Or even manga? You’ve come to the write place! Us Otakuplayground love talking about anime, and we can get into some pretty heated discussions. All opinions are welcome, but not all words are accepted. Now, you want to share your love of anime? All we ask is some pretty self-explanatory things, for example:

1. Make sure to have a specific question
When you make a new discussion, make sure to give your fellow Otakuplayground something to talk about and focus their sharp minds. Be eloquent, or at the very least, passionate. Some good examples of questions:

“Hey, did you see the new episode? Where do you think it’s going next and why? What was the MC thinking when he did this?”

A not so good example would be this:

“Hey! You think this was cool? I think it’s cool. Cool!”

While we appreciate the energy, we would definitely like some good thought put into each word and sentence. While we’re on that topic…

2. Stay on topic
This isn’t just a rule (well it is), but it’s also an act of kindness. When your fellow Otakuplayground posts something, and then you digress, it makes them feel bad. If you decide to put a post, and then your fellow member decides to talk about another show, wouldn’t that upset you? So please, stay true to the course. Some leniency is allowed as long as you get back on-topic within your next comment. After all, this is a community and we understand you want to connect with other people.

3. Don’t be a jerk
Pretty self-explanatory. While cussing is permitted, too much or needless vulgarity will be dealt with accordingly. Don’t insult others, say inflammatory remarks, be sexist, you get the drill.

4. Don’t spam
The biggest problem is one-word responses. They will be deleted automatically with no warning whatsoever. Massive spaces and obviously troll-esque comments will be given a warning and then deleted. Continuing to this will result in a ban.

5.Don’t post things on the ban list
Ban List:
A. Links to fanfiction.
B. Any form of self-promotion which include: Drawing, product placement and blogs (even if anime related).
C. Overly explicit images/gifs/videos which include: Excessive gore, decapitation, nudity, hentai, and other explicit images.
D. Don’t post cartoons or video games.

6. English only
