Walking Dead Episode 205: No Going Back
Official Megathread for civil Character Discussion
Pizza/Ice Cream discussion only goes here now, and old threads will be locked (and will not be merged unless they are already civil). Please report other threads using the Flag button so we can close them.
The other moderators and I have noticed that - as of lately - the forums are being placed into a heated, passionate debate about the choice you made in Episode 205. Initially, we chose not to intervene when people got upset at insults against fictional characters as they are just that - fictional. However, upon looking over the state of the forums as of lately, it appears things could be better.
Because of that, I'm creating a central thread where people can discuss the "Pizza/Ice Cream" choice players made in Episode 205 in a thread that will have less toleration of character insults made to provoke forum drama. Normally, I would choose to merge all the currently existing threads into this one large thread. However, the currently existing threads are filled with drama over users disagreeing with how they view other characters, and this new thread is intended to purge the forums of the drama while still allowing you to discuss the choice. I'm choosing to add new rules to this particular thread to prevent forum drama from spreading further. Because I cannot apply new rules to retroactive posts, I'm instead choosing to make this thread a new start for the Pizza/Ice Cream choice discussion.
If you see a post breaking one of these guidelines for maintaining civil discussion about the choice in this particular thread, report it using the Flag button at the upper righthand corner of a post. Since this megathread is being made, new threads discussing the character aspect of the choice will be locked, so please report new threads as well.
Maintaining Civil Discussion:
- Criticism of characters is allowed, but insults and exaggerations of characters are not as they prevent civil discussion. If you criticize a character, back it up with why you believe that criticism is valid.
- Refrain from posts that refer to an ending objectively being better over another ending - or posts that insinuate an ending is "wrong" or "right."
- Memes, Gifs, Images, etc of Character deaths that are posted mockingly do not allow for civil discussion. Refrain from posting them.
- In addition to the rules specifically for this thread, the forum guidelines still apply here as well. Please conduct respectful and civil discussion.
