Dream (Level 21)

The Winter 2015 season's winding down. Expect me to be whipping out a few reviews on titles I've been watching this season over the next few days.

Battles » Battle Forum Rules 2.0. ALL USERS PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING!!

@Falbium_Asmodeus: You can still use pictures and feats used from other sites, so long as you make an effort at putting information on the feats in question with your own words or at least give credit to the source you get it from. The rule mostly applies to thread creation.

Battles » Battle Forum Rules 2.0. ALL USERS PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING!!

@CosmicKnight75: We had a case of a Comic Vine user in one of SMXLR's CAV battles who complained that their thread idea was stolen from him. From what was investigated, SMXLR copied all of his CAV Battle threads off whatever was off Comic Vine, down to the very battle conditions that were set up. The recent rule in place is meant to circumvent this issue from occurring again.

I've also added on a new policy regarding necroed threads since I've taken notice recently of new users digging them up:

Necroing Threads

I will allow older threads to be necroed without a time limit. However, think about whether or not the thread in question is still worth discussion. Many past matches are either one-sided yet were overloooked by the mods with being locked years earlier or the threads were made long before the Battle Forum Rules were overhauled by me, Sonata and takashichea from a couple years ago, notably with the addition of the Banned Character List. Any necroed thread that is one-sided, contains a now banned character or violates any other Battle Forum Rules will be locked on sight by me or any other forum mods.

I've added a new rule onto the General Rules listing thanks to some recent issues that came up involving plagiarism:

Much like wiki projects, plagiarism won't be tolerated in this forum. By this, I mean copying someone else's thread or project from this site or other battle forum sites and pasting all the information for it within a thread without the original creator's consent. If I find out any user has plagiarized off the content of another user without their permission, then they will be disciplined for it.

Battles » CAV Battle #18 : Wonder woman (New 52) VS Naruto Uzumaki

@SMXLR8: I see you were plagiarizing the battle conditions for this match and other CAV threads entirely off Comic Vine threads. Afraid you're gonna have to be punished for this.

Battles » CAV Battle #18 : Wonder woman (New 52) VS Naruto Uzumaki

@SMXLR8: Care to explain why Naruto is nerfed as badly as he is?

Also, I believe the New 52 version of Diana is about on par with her Post-Crisis counterpart in terms of attributes meaning this baby looks like a mismatch.

General Discussion » Uncomfortable anime/manga couples.

Guess if I were to be serious with pairings that make me uneasy, it would be anyone pairing with School Days' Makoto Itou (obvious reasons if you've seen the series).

And while I might have necroed old threads as an excuse to rack up on my posts, I've reached a milestone. Wooot, 9000 POSTS! :D

Battles » List of Banned Characters in the Battle Threads

@CosmicKnight75: I never said I was claiming to advocate for what I thought the author of ToAru was saying. However when exotic abilities like reality warping get brought into a title whose medium is heavily dependent on text to convey the actions taking place like visual and light novels, it becomes a pain in the ass to get a good sense of the scale of their capabilities since readers will have differing interpretations of what is being expressed. I had similar fits with that when it came to dealing with Umineko stuff.

Battles » List of Banned Characters in the Battle Threads

@CosmicKnight75: And that's not what the author was stating?

You're aren't the author nor are the ones putting together the wiki entry. Since the feats in question are expressed entirely through text, there are going to be different reader interpretations of how they think the scope of the power plays out, especially with an ability as ridiculous as the manipulation of reality.

Since I don't feel like going over this ad nauseum all over again, Othinus is now moved to the Headache section. Egad, this is like dealing with Umineko all over again.

Battles » List of Banned Characters in the Battle Threads

@CosmicKnight75: Judging from the comments made in Othinus' entry, a couple users have interpreted dialogue within the novel to assume that she has become transcendent and capable of multiversal feats, despite the fact the site seems to acknowledge that what she performed on Earth was a form of reality filtering when she became a Majin as the ability is still listed among her abilities.

And I wonder why I love dealing with source materials that are dependent on dialogue to express their feats. -_-

@CosmicKnight75: I argued with you and EVA_01 on the matter before about my thoughts on what happened with Othinus' power demonstration. It's nothing greater than universal-level in my book. Let's leave it at that.

Battles » List of Banned Characters in the Battle Threads

@Shadowchaos: Only cases a character would be added to the Headache list are issues of controversy with a character or if they are featless. Seems like Hao has clear enough feats where a ban isn't necessary.

In any event, the mentioned ToAru characters brought up are now banned. However, I'm still convinced multiversal-level Othinus is an exaggeration thus is not banned.

@CosmicKnight75: Fiamma universal-level? Last I recall, La Persona Superiore only gave him power comparable to an archangel thus being at least planetary level.

Regardless, I'd still consider it a nerf to ban said dragon since it technically exists as a part of Touma's body via Imagine Breaker. Ban it and I'll have to say Touma will have to be banned with said Dragon since you're stripping away part of his powerset.
