    "1. No more threads posting up help for one character in whatever game no exceptions"

    thats really harsh walter.


    *bacardi answer*

    being the smallest forum, I try to keep it as organized as possible but if there is lets say a KOF2k2 thread, I am tired of seeing K' 2k2 strats & help*
    Stupid games...

    6. thread Necromancy (I really fucking hate this one)

    Is it just me or do those two kinda contradict each other? If there is an existing thread for a particular fighter, old and abandoned for all extensive purposes. And I want help for a character in that game... what do I do? I'm not allowed to ressurect the thread, yet I can't post because I'm asking about a single character in the game.



    *bacardi answer*

    Make a new thread for the game

    I second a lot of this....search for the threads ahead of time before making a new one..

    Hes saying post up in the thread asking for help instead of making a thread for ONE character..

    Also there are other threads in FGD that may solve the problem as well I think to help answer things.

    For some stuff that makes sense, but as a whole this is wack. If I have a question about a character, it makes no sense to get that shit bogged down by other information that's not relevant. Something like Jojo's one thread makes sense. Alpha 3 one thread for the game is insane. Putting all that info in one thread completely negates the usefulness of the search function.

    6. thread Necromancy (I really fucking hate this one) if the last time someone posted in the thread was last year you might be better off with a new thread
    Iif we post a duplicate thread (which is against forum rules across the board), we get an infraction. If we post in an old thread, we get an infraction. Why post at all then? Also, it doesn't make sense to start a new thread (if what you're posting is really relevant, otherwise don't post it all) because then you have more than 1 thread for the same thing (which is what your first rule was trying to avoid) and you lose the information already posted in the first thread because it will eventually fall off the boards.

    All the other rules are much needed.

    Yeah, I don't understand what the problem is with necromancy. Especially if the old thread has a lot of valuable information and you need something clarified.

    I've seen people get infractions for bumping old threads rather than starting new ones and I've seen people get infractions for starting a new thread rather than bumping up some 6 month old one.
    SRK mods in general need to be more clear and uniform about their rules.

    Most problems with thread necromancy is that people just bump the fucking thread and dont add nothing

    So who issues out infractions anyway because I got a red bar for no reason what so ever. So you are saying talk about the game but just not something specific of the game character wise that may result into a FAQ?

    "Intents and purposes."

    Anyway, is it ok to start a Soul Calibur 4 thread? it seems "other games" is all 2D fighters. I don't want to get in trouble for starting a 3D game thread in here.
    Is it time for the Calibur tourney yet?

    1. No more threads posting up help for one character in whatever game no exceptions

    So if I have a question that only regards with one character I can't ask that?

    Never really understand this one. No problem following the rules but there are so many instances where I have searched for something online that could still be relevant if answered now even if the last post was ages ago. Just because the original conversation ended doesn't mean it's not helpful to others.

    Anyways no big deal just my own experience :)

    @GearType‌ before the forum upgrade thread Necromancy was an issue as the forums were a lot more active.

    @ryushen‌ why not just start a Garou thread? Get some players going ?

    Is it okay to make a "Hyper Street Fighter II" thread? I am asking this because I like that game and it contains the most variants of the various characters. 65 variants to be precise. Also, I think that Hyper Street Fighter II should be released on steam.
  • BacardiBacardi steal this avatar Joined: Posts: 5,391 mod
    go for it

    And I have created the Hyper Street Fighter II The Anniversary Edition thread.

    It is a few days old but it is still fresh. Now discuss all the tactics about the Various Variants and the tactics for said characters. But remember Akuma/Gouki is still banned. And will always be banned!
