I created this because a user had abused the @ system and disrespected the mods in attempt to lock threads he/ or she did not like. I'm not a forum mod, but I would help my teammates control the situation.

This is a checklist:

  • Review the Battle Rules
  • State why this thread should be locked - This makes my job easier since I'm not familiar with most comic book and anime characters.
  • When you requesting a thread to lock, don't insult people or put silly images. Take it seriously, please.
  • Don't ask mods in a rude fashion. My teammates and I are busy people like everyone else.

Yeah, I see this a lot. Threads that aren't even in violation of the rules requesting a lock, usually because an individual doesn't like what he/she sees. It should be clear that even if a thread is locked, people's opinions aren't going to change.

@takashichea: to be honest the serious part is not really needed since it should not be but I do agree with the pics and such

@takashichea: Well said Taka, I have been giving thought about putting a thread post limit to battle threads to prevent threads from going off topic.

@Sonata: @takashichea: I wonder if there could be a CAV challenge thread for users looking to do /setup and arrange a CAV ? CAV = Challenge A Vicer

@SMXLR8:

I put the "Take it seriously" part because there are users who cry wolf. Plus, it's annoying to see demotivational images or GIFs with the requests. I can't tell if the person is serious. It's a waste of time.

Edit:

I don't know what you mean by Challenge a Vicer. If Sonata says so, I'm fine with that.

@takashichea: Ill also help out if it's needed since I am very familiar in these park.

From now on if I see insults I will let you or any mod know about it.

@DBZ_universe: there is no need for that since some times these thing resolve them self's

I think he means a thread where one user challenges another for a 1 on 1 debate.

Personally I feel it'll be pretty useful for these Toriko vs DBZ topics, since they've been attracting many users from other forums like MvC.

@supernova7005:

Thank you. Did you get my message about your wiki edit? I just want to follow up with you.

Not really, you have a chance. I actually denied this position several times, and in addition, it seems that they didn't need new mods because the community's size was reaching a plateau (it's not increasing much like 3 years ago) Out of the blue, they made me mod due to my involvement with the anime seasonal guides (see Summer Anime 2013 Trailers as an example).

I prefer another person who knows battle threads to help out Sonata or the other pre-existing mods to help out (once a week at least). I can't deal with battle threads. It's a major headache to look up the characters and pick who's right and who's wrong. I'm more of a wiki mod.
