    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.

    Exactly, and to avoid that kind of drama to escalate on AKP, restricting the promotion of other forum due to the increased amount of drama and shade, we will hopefully end with less toxic threads alike those we already have experienced ^^

    we're not trying to compete. The main objective of this thread is to let users know that we are trying to avoid any and all drama between the fourms and decided that this was the best way to achieve that.

    Ahh I understand now you were talking about people promoting other forums not the forums themselves. Though I don't really see how someone could gain something out of that unless they were the site owner.

    From what I remember it's always been a rule to not mention other forums on akp since it could start an issue. It's not really a new rule if others are trying to find a problem with it.

    Hmh, are you limiting not only promotion, but also discussion of other forums and kpop websites with this cause you probably know, but many akp users are users on multiple forums and discussion sites including not only forums, but things like article side of AKP (usually frowned on forums), Netizenbuzz etc. I guess this works as band-aid for now for the issue on AKP's side, idk how it would be as long term solution though.

    It is not meant to be a kind of band-aid for a short terms sake - however for a general direction
    The threads of which has happened to only promote or compare the so-called different sites has several times ended with being shade and bash, whether on the one or the other side; which has resulted in discomfort for users
    To avoid this, restricting the promotion of other forums on AKP would be a way to prohibit these kind of threads of becoming the norm
    Stopping discussions of news sites of this kind of sort is not what we are aiming at - users are allowed to link articles, discuss news section of the given websites and much more; however the general promotion and comparison between the forums that basically are made to shade staff or users on the given sites or that end up being like that, we would like to avoid and therefor the general restriction would direct the users towards a more civil approach rather than going heads first with the end result of a messy thread ^^

    I can't say much regarding what other sites contain; I have no knowledge in that department
    However by making a rule against promoting other forums, it would prohibit promoting any forum, whether infected or not
    Hopefully that will do ^^

    Two questions:
    • If I were to post a link to an article/post on a site, such as Reddit, would this be a violation to the rule?
    • ***This question is sincere and is no means disrespectful: While I appreciate the removal of drama in anyway it can be done on AKP, if this is going to be implemented shouldn't other rules be also, such as no posts about controversial topics as they usually devolve into personal attack (i.e. Abortion posts tend to result in people being called stupid and uneducated)?
