    Hello everyone!


    We have a new rule that we’re going to put into place after some discussions we’ve had and from what we’ve seen on the forums recently.


    We are going to ask everyone to refrain from promoting other forums/websites here on AKP. From what we’ve seen, when this happens it ends up turning into a giant bashing session on here (akp), which we want to avoid from now on.


    We understand some of you are frustrated with AKP or how the system works. We are trying our best to fix the issues and have good friendly discussions. However, comparing forums just leads to staff/user shading/bashing on here (akp) and we would like to avoid promotion of forums that bash and target AKP users


    We have nothing against any of the websites you want to promote on AKP, but we had been having issues with users trying to promote these pages as a way to bash AKP. All we want is the forum to be a nice place for everyone.


    Thank you, from the AKP Moderation Team~

    this is over the top. this is based on someone making up stories. the mods on kps has been locking and deleting any form of shade directed to akp as soon as they saw that. you guys are painting a way different story. please just ignore kps and move on with your life.

    Yeah. First of all there was that drama with all those rantings and people who could not decide between AKP and OH and than as the first user ever came over and made people instantly leaving for KPS it became really bad. I know I made some jokes about that, but not in a way to ever hurt anyone who is on OH or KPS and I apologize if someone feels hurt from the jokes I made but I know other users did really bad on that topic, because all those "I leave AKP cause on KPS is no drama" sounds so bad and new users might feel hurt and than think AKP was bad... I guess you all know what I mean and we don't like people geting to see a side that is maybe even a big lie or mistake to those who have no idea of anything.

    Next time if anyone of you leaves us than please don't ad "I'm leaving for KPS cause AKP has a lot of drama" and don't act like "KPS is better cause..." because this might hurt users who are true fans of AKP and maybe even makes that more and more people want to leave AKP too when they know where to find you when that users really like to write with you and new users at the end maybe leave too cause they find messages like "I hate the drama on here" etc. and think that KPS was better cause of you advertising it as "drama-free"

    And than there is still the part of users who likes to rant a lot about OH and sides similar to OH or even end up like "I don't know why you are all so much against OH, I love that side" etc.

    It sounds to me like if Kids in the supermarket fight over if Nutella is the best or if a no-name brand-version of Nutella was better and than some kids would be like "but how can't you not like the Original Nutella?" and than be like if they had to tell why the original was better etc. and people who never ate Nutella before would maybe than buy the original one cause they think other brands would be worse ...

    The rule is made on AKP and therefor given to be refering to that
    Beside, shading users and the site has and is still happening on given sides - so that would be correct too, and not everything has been deleted no ^^
    Generally speaking; we target this on AKP and want our forum to become more drama free from these kind of threads - so we’re not painting a picture of other forums but giving the direction we want ~

    So other websites, does this include Soompi, Twitter, Naver, Nate etc. As sometimes I prefer making discussions using information from other sites. I greatly prefer using Soompi articles in my threads to AKP ones etc.

    Those other new forums had malware on them anyway when I checked them out, had to do a deep scan clean and delete all cookies.
    Im staying here.

    Yeah I know. I amconfused because you wrote other websites/forums and Soompi has a forum. I just want to be sure your not going to delete threads for using Soompi articles etc.

    I believe there’s a difference between referencing articles versus promoting a forum with agenda.

    Sorry I don't understand? I think it is far fetched to say other kpop forums have agendas. They are just communities like this one.

    I honestly don't want any drama. There is no need for that. Best thing is to let it be. akp is working great as it is now. competition will always be there- even for forums. At the end of the day it's all just communities.

    That’s not what I said at all???

    I said it’s a difference for an individual to simply use reference off of articles versus the agenda of promoting another forum to gain something out of it.
