This is the official information thread for Sci-Fi/Fantasy: Books and Comics. Raven and NYCitygurl will keep it updated with important information. Please check in about every week. If you have any questions, post below or PM one of us. Mod News Raven and NYCitygurl are going to be around full-time for the next few weeks. As per a new Mod Squad policy, if we are away for more than five days, we will be changing our colors to green font and transparent background, and our titles will say 'absent' or 'on vacation.' The latest Mod Squad update, done by NaboosPrincess, can be found here. A new 'Around the Boards' feature, which will be done every week by rhonderoo, can be found here. Games and Contests The writing contest, hosted by Master-FatBurt, will be starting again soon, with a different format. Look for the signups thread soon!! If you've got an idea for a game or contest, let us know!! Rules and Reminders Please have a look at the Official Profanity and Disallowed Words List. There have been some new additons, and posting words on the dia-allowed list is a ban-worthy offense. Quoting an inappropriate post will also get you in trouble. Unban applications are applicable to the same TOS that posts are. No rudeness or profanity is allowed there, either. Just as a reminder, while you are allowed to discuss, debate, and disagree about books, comics, authors, genres, etc., don't get nasty or personal; be respectful of the other person's viewpoint. On a messageboard where people can't see the faces and expressions of those they are debating with, things can be taken the wrong way. Personal and mean-spirited comments will be edited and appropriate action taken. Also, please remember that this is not the place for questions or discussions about Star Wars books and comics. Those threads belong in Literature.
