[1/20/10] *POSTS MUST BE IN ENGLISH: Your posts must be in English otherwise it is considered spam. We are an English forum, in order to generate discussions, we must be able to understand what you write. If you need to include some Chinese or other languages into your comment, that is fine. If your entire post is in another language, that is NOT fine. Thank you.

[6/18/09] *COPY&PASTE OFFENDERS: will suffer stricter consequences on 2nd offense.

*Save us both time, if you know the comment your making is spam, don't post it! We know it and you know it... why waste time? Do it right the first time and we'll all be happy. =)

Double Posting

What IS considered double posting?

-- [Double Post Rules] --
  • posting more than once of the spam post in the same forum/thread.
  • posting more than once of different posts in the same forum/thread, but at very close time intervals (Such as, Post #1 made at 1pm - Post#2 made at 1:10pm = Double post)
  • posting a comment in a thread and then posting the same or similar comment at a much later time. Any 'double posts' made 3 months or before is considered as double posting. (Such as Post#1 made in February 2008, Post#2 made in March 2008 or April 2008)

What's NOT considered as double posting?
  • Topics in Battle of Words, General Chat or in Asian Entertainment Discussions (Asian Series).
    Battle of Words & General Chat: These forums allow double posting, because you may be speaking to another member or debating. In this case, double posting is allowed, however must be different comments and quote the member your replying to. (If you showed no sign that you are responding to another member, Double Post rules apply.)
  • Asian Entertainment Discussions: Take Asian Series as example, in February 2008 you may have seen the series and thought of it this way. However in March 2008 when the series ended, you thought differently and wanted to share. In this case, you can double post. (Do not make the same post if you feel the same way after the series ended = Double post.)
  • [uPDATE: 8/19/2009] Double Posts made more than 3 months after the first post is not considered as spam. We know you all are humans and have limited memory, meaning that you can't possibly remember everything you posted. For example, if you made post #1 in February 2008 and posted again (post #2) in August 2009, you will not be penalized because that is over a year ago. You will, however, be penalized if you made the same exact comment as post #1. -- this is copying and pasting.

-- How do you know if you already have posted in a topic? If you see the following icons beside a topic, then that means you already have posted in that topic.--

When and Where do I quote?

It looks like since we disabled the Quoting First Post. Some members has decided to just go quote any old person and write something that is totally unrelated to the quote. NO! This is spamming and will not be accepted. You are not respecting our Staff or contributing to AEU if you do this.

Quote says: I like this series, the setting and costumes are very pretty, acting is also good!
You say: Can't wait to watch this series! I really like the plot and the cast.

(^ NO! Not Acceptable)

Quote says: I like this series, the setting and costumes are very pretty, acting is also good!
You say: really? I haven't seen this series yet, but I think the costumes are beautiful too! they made good choices and also do like the location of the series, looks relaxing.

(^ OK! your reply should be responding to the quote and relating to it)

If you spot any of these actions on AEU, please be so kind to report it.
