    Re: DGD Orphans

    Wow, that was fast! So that new forum is called DGDivinity.

    Unfortunately, the way the new forum is at the moment, I'm going to have to pass on it. There are things I like about the setup of the forum, but the things I don't like outweigh them to the point where I don't want to join, even despite badly wanting a DGD replacement. It's early days yet, so for all I know things might change, so I'm going to mention a few of those things in case it's helpful.

    - The colour scheme is light grey on a dark grey background. It's not very readable at all. I can't envisage spending long browsing a site with that sort of colour scheme, because it would be uncomfortable.

    The main problem by far is the rules of the new forum: http://dgdivinity.yourme.net/n2-r-u-...ead-this-first

    By contrast, I don't have a problem with the Mangahelpers forum rules or the old D.Gray-divinity's rules. (You can still see the old DGD's rules at the internet Archive: http://web.archive.org/web/200902110...ity-rules.html)

    I don't like those rules. First of all, they're unclear. Rule 1 appears to prohibit any aggressive posts but also "personal insults and critics, the coarseness and vulgarities"...but what does that mean? If it means "No swearing, and no criticism of anyone" I'm not sure that's practical. (And to be honest, some of the old members of DGD have really filthy mouths! They would never be able to follow a no swearing rule.) Rule one also appears to say that French law applies to the forum, but again, it's unclear.

    Quote Quote:
    2. Messages who promote - or evoke - illegal practices are prohibited.
    6. Links and files which are refering illegal website/hosters/downloaders are also prohibited.
    Rules 2 and 6 are written unclearly, are very very broad, and are very difficult to enforce. For example, copyright infringement is illegal, so those rules are saying that none of that will be tolerated by the mods at DGDivinity. This rules out people using things like manga or anime art in their avatars and signature banners. But people are already doing that at DGDivinity now. The piece of art from D.Gray-man at the top of the page, used as the forum banner, contravenes that rule, which means the mods have already broken the rules themselves. The Fan Art subforum there says that people can post their own fan art or fan art they like there, but going by the forum rules, they will be in big trouble if they post fan art that isn't theirs and they don't have permission to post.

    Under those rules, we would also be unable to discuss recent chapters of D.Gray-man, given that scanlations infringe copyright and rule 2 prohibits anything which could be seen as promoting illegal activity. It would also be impossible for things like the scanlations of profile pages from the Character Book to be posted.

    Quote Quote:
    Any message contravening the listing above will be edited or removed without additional notice or justification within deadlines which will depend on the availability of the moderators. Any abuse will involve the cancellation of the registration. Internet is neither an anonymous space, nor a space of no-right! We reserve ourselves the possibility of informing your access provider and/or the legal authorities of any malevolent behavior. An IP address of each poster is recorded in order to help us to make you respect these conditions.
    This rule is the worst, IMO. As we all know, the net really isn't a totally anon space or somewhere free of laws, but the phrasing there is not welcoming to members, and reads as a threat.

    Re: DGD Orphans

    At first, thanks for your opinion and the tips

    1. The font color
    Dou you think a white one is better? I don't want to use colours like red or blue in the main texts. For headlines it's okay of curse =)

    2. The Rules
    Wow, thank you for the link to the old DGD-Rules =)
    But I have to be honest. English is not my main language. This is one of the reasons, why the rules sadly aren't perfect.
    I need some help with it and I'm really thankfull, that you're so honestly.
    You're right with the forum header o.o
    Man, it's really cognizable, that this one is my first forum

    If I'm writing, where I get it, is it possible to take the DGD-Rules for DGDivinity? What you think?


    Edit: I have to say that the rules were specified by the forumhoster

    Edit2: I'm not able to make that DGM-Translation-Things because I don't know how and were to get. Thats one of the topics I need help with a special moderator who wants to manage that

    Ahhh, that explains it. The content of the rules there seemed odd for you to be saying, but for a forum hosting site's default terms it's different. In that case, it's not so worrying at all! The forum host, like most website hosts, probably doesn't care at all about things like the forum header and people discussing new chapters. If it had all been your idea as the mod and you were raring to go to enforce even the broadest and trickiest of the rules to the fullest extent, I didn't think it was a good sign for the forum, but it wasn't that. Sorry for doubting you.

    I think there are probably a few options for the best forum readability. Black text on a white background can be good for some people, as can white text on dark backgrounds. (I agree, blue or red wouldn't work...)

    Ohai guys! I was Artemis on DGD. More of a lurker, but was there every day for months before it died. I am the only fan of DGM that I know of here in New Zealand, so it is nice that I have somewhere else to go and lurk haha.

    Re: DGD Orphans

    Ahh? DGD has been down for awhile because of lack of payments? .. D: Awww... It was my first DGM forum to join before coming here. Lots of nice people over there. (I was dgraygirl, or something like that over there.)

    Welcome to all the survivors to this place! ^____^
