    Default Mod Rulings And Archive Searching Thread

    This thread is for quick-reference to Mod Rulings. Please PM me with any rulings, including links to their locations.

    A slightly grouchy explanation of how these things work.

    Below the rulings is Nik Hasta's instructional post on using Advanced Google Search to find old threads.

    Edited by Siriel:
    If you have a problem with a mod ruling, check when it was made. If it was made yesterday, now is probably not the best time to contest it. Unless you know the information the ruling is based on is false. The information, not the interpretation.
    If the ruling was made a fair amount of time ago, then send a Private Message to the moderator who made the ruling explaining why you feel the ruling should not stand. Do not start arguing against the ruling in open threads

    Possible reasons for modifying a mod ruling would be along these lines:
    1 - The character has gone under a significant change in presentation and thus past rulings should no longer apply.
    2 - New evidence has come indicating that the original ruling is mistaken. (For example, it is revealed that when someone pushed a planet, the planet was actually empty inside.)

    Finally, DC has fairly recently undergone a global reboot that means that feats from past versions of characters are no longer applicable. While no mod rulings have been made on the New DC Universe as of yet, it is probably inevitable that they will come. As such, please check what version of the character is being discussed when you go through the rulings before trying to get the ruling changed.

    Default How to use Advanced Google Searches...

    Okay chaps, since the search function on the site is full of fail and can't find... well anything, I'm just putting together a little instructional post on how to use Advanced Searches with Google in order to find things on the board.

    So here we go, let us say I am a user on CBR and I wish to find some stuff and things, I know the search function on the site doesn't work, so let's try faithful old Google:

    But oh no, these results are stuff and things from the whole internetz, what do we do now?!

    Well we click on the link marked "Advanced Search," circled in the image above.

    This is well take us to the advanced search window. Here we type in the URL of the site we wish to search in the "Search within site or domain," option. In this case it is

    Hitting search again will thus bring up all the stuff and things that you are searching for within CBR itself and it will include the Archive within it's search parameters so you can even find really old threads that have long since been lost! Joyous occasions!

    Hope this helps you all out finding stuff and this post should hopefully be getting stickied.

    Default Links to Respect Threads.

    Nik Hasta:

    Killua Zoldick Respect thread.

    Killy Respect thread, though this was only a short thread and everything has 404'd on me in this one.

    Tenjou Tenge Respect thread.

    As Nik notes, the lazy bum hasn't used proper imagehosting and some images have gone to the dreaded red 'x'.
