B. Posting Rules
The Naruto Battledome is a subsection dedicated to the discussion of hypothetical 'versus' scenarios (ie. battles) between Naruto characters based on the Naruto storyline. This may include direct match-ups between characters, characters against specific jutsu, or jutsu match-ups.
When creating a match-up in the Battledome, it is strongly recommended you specify the knowledge, location, distance, restrictions and any other special conditions there might be. By default, manga knowledge is assumed in every thread in the Naruto Battledome. Also, if you want to post a thread that's anime-friendly, dub-friendly or what have you, please specify in the thread.
Please read and ensure you understand the below rules before posting in the Manga Battledome. If you have any questions or problems, PM a section moderator.
For more information on this section, and the Konoha Colosseum, refer to the Naruto Battledome Wiki.
A. Thread Rules
- Post threads of the appropriate subject.
- Do not post threads based on spoilers.
- If there is a thread identical to the one you want to post on the first five pages, reply there instead.
- Post threads only if there is a discussion to be had.
- Post all required information, including location, starting distance, knowledge and any special circumstances.
- Location, starting distance and etc. are optional for tier/ranking threads.
- Do not post to cause drama or incite an argument.
Does your thread belong in the Naruto Battledome Battledome? (Read the first paragraph on what should belong here. Discussion of the Naruto Dub, Manga, Anime and general banter belong in the Dub Section, Konoha Library, Konoha TV, and Konoha Plaza respectively. Hypothetical battle scenarios involving other storylines or worlds belong in the appropriate subsection of the Outskirts Battledome.
In addition, match-ups such as ‘Sex battle: Sakura vs Hinata in chocolate syrup bath. who would win?’ are not acceptable in the Battledome. You may wish to refer to the Joke Battledome in the Outskirts Battledome for such threads. As for match-ups such as ‘Neji v. Shikamaru: Who is smarter?’, such threads should be made in the House of Uzumaki.
2. Do not post threads based on spoilers.
In the Manga Battledome, any pre-RAW spoilers pertaining to the week’s chapter may not be discussed in the Naruto Battledome. Unlike the Konoha Library, if the chapter scanlation has been made available and there is discussion of it in the Konoha Telegrams, then such applicable post-RAW content may be used in the Naruto Battledome. Members do not have to wait for three days to post information pertaining to the latest chapter. BUT please keep in mind that if you are going to mention post-RAW spoilers, please spoiler tag it. If you are going to be making a thread please write a warning such as:
in the title.
3. If there is a thread identical to the one you want to post on the first five pages, reply there instead.
There's no need to start a new thread if one already exists, and if the only difference is a minor detail then it's probably not worth starting a new thread either. PLEASE at least check the first two pages. Also, it would be a good idea to make use of the search function (if it is working) If you are planning to make an obvious thread like Kakashi vs Gai, Sasuke vs Kakashi, Kakuzu vs Deidara,etc., then there is a very good chance that someone has made that thread before. In addition, DO NOT post spam threads for a single character to prove a point or to be annoying. These threads will be sent to the landfill and the user will be punished.
On the other hand, 'necroing/necrobumping' - resurrecting a thread more than a month old - is generally frowned upon in this section, but is not bannable as long as the post is contributive, or new information has been brought to light in the manga (introduction of new jutsu, feats, et cetera). Posting just to boost your count can and will be punished.
4. Post threads only if there is a discussion to be had.
Threads posted can fail to leave opportunity for discussion if a) they are too speculative, with little to nothing known of one or more of the shinobi involved, or b) the outcome is self-evident without explanation. Threads where the outcome is clear without any discussion should also not be posted (e.g. Hinata against Jiraiya).). If you are going to make a thread involving characters such as Post-TS Temari, Hinata, Lee, etc. try to use you original post to explain what other abilities these characters might have for this battle to have healthy a discussion. i.e. Hinata w/ Neji's moves
5. Post all required information, including location, starting distance, and knowledge.
It is recommended all threads contain information pertaining to the location, distance, mindset, knowledge, restrictions and special conditions where necessary, although omitting these specifications is not a punishable offence.
Please, use descriptive thread titles so people know what they are getting into. So, no more threads like "what if...", "fight to death...", "assassination...", etc. These thread titles are terribly unclear. If a person reads such a thing they don't know what characters are involved and specifically what they are getting into. Above all, use common sense.
6. Do not post to cause drama or incite an argument.
No matter how clever or justified you think it is, don't use threads as a way to prove a personal point or to get back at someone – even if you do it in a very subtle way. Furthermore, if you know that someone has a rather controversial view, don't specifically make a thread to try to bait them into an argument. Basically, no spite threads or flamebaiting.
7. Please don't post open-ended threads.
Threads like 'Which characters can X beat', where their opponents aren't clearly defined, are too open-ended. Most people will only post one-line responses, and we're trying to stay clear of that.
An Example to Writing a Good Manga Battledome Thread:
Naruto Battledome Poster X said:-Title-
Taka Sasuke vs Post-TS Kakashi
Restrictions: Taka Sasuke does not have his Cursed Seal(CS), Orochimaru inside of him nor any powers provided by Orochimaru (ie. summoning tatoo). Sasuke also doesn't have access to the Mangekyou Sharingan.
Battlefield: Pre-TS Bell test battle ground
Starting Distance: 80 meters.
State of Mind : Blood Lusted. So, no more opinions like Kakashi won't harm Sasuke because he cares about Sasuke and, he is his teacher.
