    Rules of the UBD

    Insults and otherwise excessive personal attacks will be punished. Stay civil and preferably on topic.
    It's entirely fine to poke fun or throw some flack as long as it doesn't get out of hand.


    Standard setting unless specified otherwise by the OP:

    Starting Distance: 50 meters
    Mindset: Bloodlust (Characters are not prone to CIS and will do anything and everything to win the fight. This does not limit or hinder their mental capacity unlike a berserker state/rage.)
    Starting forms: Base
    Location: Neutral Setting giving no advantage to either combatant(s)
    Energy equalized
    Speed unequalized

    General Rules:

    -Off topic posting will only be tolerated to a certain extent. Having members making a post or two that doesn't pertain to the thread is something not of much concern, but if the thread starts getting derailed with over a page of off-topic posts then that's not something that can be tolerated. Generally a warning to get back on topic would suffice, but if it gets out of hand post deletions can happen, and if the thread isn't looking to get back on course it may be closed. Generally this will only result in a warning to stay on topic, but if the member has a history of derailing threads then they may risk punishment.

    -Proposed upgrades in the Meta Battledome may not be used until accepted.

    -If threads on a certain series start to get too out of hand and plague the section then that series can run the risk of having restrictions put on it in the battledome. If it's a single member or two making all the threads then the limits will be placed on them, but if a whole group is making posts about a certain series then there will be a limit set in place on how many can be made per week until we feel things have calmed down. Members who try to break this limit will have their threads closed, and if they continue in spite of warnings can receive further punishment.

    -Derailing threads is frowned upon in the UBD. If a member makes a habit of derailing threads they can receive punishment, likely a temporary section ban should the behavior persist regardless of warnings.

    -As for the character profiles, should you plan to make one then make sure that you're putting quality effort into it and not something half-baked with little substance, otherwise you run the risk of your entry being seen as clutter and removed. An important thing to note is that if you're going to throw down stats for a character in a profile, it is important that you cite your work. If you come up with these stats yourself then post your evidence and work for how you came to that conclusion, and if you got those stats from somewhere else then it's also important that you cite your work. You don't want to disgrace yourself or the forum by throwing down plaguerized work and passing it off as your own.

    -If the staff feel that a thread is too much of a stomp, was made out of spite, or doesn't provide any discussion value, then they may reserve the right to close the threads as they see fit.

    -That said, the staff are not perfect and may close a thread that still had quality discussion value or didn't reach a satisfying conclusion. If a member feels that one of their threads was unfairly closed then they can appeal with reasoning on why it should be opened. A member who tries to skip this step and just make the same thread will have it closed, and can receive punishment for repeat offenses.

    -Not so much of a rule as it is a reminder, but for some characters things like location and mindset are important, so including them helps to make your thread as clear and concise as possible. For instance, a character like Jinbe is at his strongest in the water, while a character like Spiderman is chatty and utilizes things like buildings to his advantage, so putting that the location is Grand Central Station with bloodlust would prevent confusion, so make good use of the edit button if you forgot to include that stuff. Otherwise assume the characters are in character in the most neutral playing field possible, a WWE ring.

    tl;dr


    "For years he devoted himself to training and after he could no longer find strong foes, Mihawk joined the Warlords."

    "Though Hawk-Eyes strikes fear into the hearts of those who follow the way of the sword, he looks forward to the future, to the day when he will meet the swordmaster that surpasses his rival 'Red Hair'."

    "He rose to renown even before the Great Age of Piracy. Even now he reigns supreme as the World's Best in name and actuality, an exceptional master swordsman."

    "He sits atop as the strongest, gazing down at his prey. The World's Strongest Swordsman!"

    Actually these rules are pretty reasonable.


    I understand that the staff like PoPs, GP, and MC will be looking over this, but is there a staff in particular we should alert if one thinks rules are violated?

    X and Ichi sound like safe bets, they've been most vocal in the Parliaments about this.

    The staff have been hearing the complaints that have been going on in the UBD and have decided it's time to put some rules in place to keep the section on track.

    -Off topic posting will only be tolerated to a certain extent. Having members making a post or two that doesn't pertain to the thread is something not of much concern, but if the thread starts getting derailed with over a page of off-topic posts then that's not something that can be tolerated.

Generally this will only result in a warning to stay on topic, but if the member has a history of derailing threads then they may risk punishment.

    -Pixel scaling has no official merit in the versus debates; most authors aren't even that consistent with the exact size they draw things. If a member is seen bringing in scans and trying to measure the pixels as an argument then it may be seen as derailing the thread and result in their post being deleted.

    -If threads on a certain series start to get too out of hand and plague the section then that series can run the risk of having restrictions put on it in the battledome. If it's a single member or two making all the threads then the limits will be placed on them, but if a whole group is making posts about a certain series then there will be a limit set in place on how many can be made per week until we feel things have calmed down.

    -That said, the staff are not perfect and may close a thread that still had quality discussion value or didn't reach a satisfying conclusion. We will end up opening an appeal thread, if a member feels that one of their threads was unfairly closed then they can post in the thread with reasoning on why it should be opened. A member who tries to skip this step and just make the same thread will have it closed, and can receive punishment for repeat offenses.

    This means no calcs then since the artists/authors don't write this with nerds doing calculations over the feats in their intentions



    Your friendship?
    I'll take it!

    i agree with rax to a degree. some form of scaling - including pixel scaling should be allowed. however then the pixel scaling cant be just done for a chosen scan to downplay or make a feat look more impressive than it is.

    the scaling has to be consistent with other scans and feats available - e.g. some scans of fairty tale or nanatsu no taizai cant be taken into account for pixel scaling when they indicate a heavily worse result than former showings and feats. vice versa as well of course.

    Members have been complaining that the UBD is dead for quite a while now, it isn't new.

    RIP Chester, you'll always be loved and missed.

    Even if the UBD were suffering a large quantity loss, the rules should hold.

    People will eventually adjust to and use the rules correctly, and the UBD will grow from casual interest.

    More seriously, this needs time to fully work. Just like how you can't get results out of a single gym visit, you can't expect a complete turn around of the UBD in less than half a week.

    Rules are quite messy. We would prefer more discrete one. Anyway Rax got a butthurt.
