  • Clubs and Ships Rules!

    Hi everyone

    As the clubs/ships section is still a very busy part of the forum it is our plea that spamming is kept to a minimum. These threads encourage discussions on characters/relationships, but a one line post agreeing with someone's point will get you a warning.

    I've also noticed that some members make 6 or 7 posts a day in the same club thread. This is not allowed when the discussion is no longer than 2 lines. Please only visit a couple of times a day and reply to all relevant posts then. No need to reply instantly to everyone with your comment.

    At BuffyForums we pride ourselves on quality, not quantity. So many members have joined due to the deep discussions and lack of spam on these boards. If your post has no real point, just rambling it maybe 5 lines but will still be considered spam if there is nothing to be gained from reading it.

    Please note that just because a club is pro a ship that doesn't mean that members who don't feel the same way can't post in that thread. They probably won't be joining the club, but a healthy debate can only take place when there are people on both sides. And since this is a discussion forum I'm encouraging it Just remember.. no insulting!

    Also I've had to close some clubs recently. We have a rule that clubs only for real relationships are allowed. This is because this section is for discussing the shows. And ships that didn't happen can't discuss the show, only imagination, fics or artwork. This should belong in the misc section where posts don't count and you are free to discuss anything.

    If you have any comments or suggestions you can make them public in the FAQ/Suggestions forum. Or if you wish to make a private comment or suggestion you can always send me or any of the Super Moderators a private message.
