There are a few things I want to go over with everyone. Mostly about one word posts, post farming, trolling, flaming, etc.
Read what's in red. IF YOU DECIDED NOT TO READ IT neg reps will be warranted, and based on the severity, I will do it multiple times.
I warn you. DO NOT BREAK THE RULES.

There will be no one word answers. All answers should be AT THE VERY LEAST one sentence long and should contain legitimate reasoning to back up your take on a fight. Any answers not meeting these standards are subject to down reps, spamming infractions, and post deletion.
Flaming ABSOLUTELY will NOT be tolerated. Any flaming or semblance of flaming may be subject to down reps, infractions, and post deletion.
Stay on topic with the debate at hand. A certain amount of leniency will be allowed, but if the conversation begins to stray towards Off Topic then down reps, infractions, and post deletion may be warranted. You MAY NOT simply say "I agree with __________". You must post your own reasons and facts in order to be considered a participant in the debate and not just a post farmer.
Joke Threads are allowed, but be forewarned that there is a limit as to how far you can go with them. If something looks like post farming, flaming, trolling, wanking, etc. down reps, infractions, and post deletion may be warranted. Also, be aware that not many debaters may share the same sense of humor as you, and no Mods, Admins, FAIL members, BAD members, etc. are to be held accountable for any negative repercussions you receive from a Joke Thread.
There is a limit as to how many threads you may make a day. The limit is that a single person may only make five threads in the Battleground per day. ALL FORUM RULES ARE IN EFFECT WHILE IN THE BATTLEGROUNDS.
