Welcome to the discussion boards for Mike's Comics and Games! To make the boards as fun and enjoyable for all, we ask that you read through and agree to the following rules:

General Rules

  • Do not flame or belittle others for their opinions. We may not agree on everything and everyone has their own opinions, but let's keep it civil. Tasteful debate is encouraged. Please do not turn it into personal attacks or flame wars.
  • Do not use bad or offensive language here. There may be youngsters here, and we would like to keep it family-friendly.
  • Please do not back seat moderate. If you notice a post that is offensive or otherwise does not fit our guidelines, please bring it to a moderator's attention.
  • Keep the conversations on-topic.  Posts that are off-topic will be moved to the appropriate section or deleted at the moderator's judgement.
  • Do not bump or resurrect threads that are more than  30 days old.
  • Posts in the nature of "this my my 100th post" or other posts that serve no purpose than running up the post count will not be tolerated.
  • No spamming or trolling of the board. Violators will be banned on the first offense. There will be no tolerance for this behavior.
  • Please refrain from starting a discussion aimed at a specific member. These are best handled through private messages

  • Moderators reserve the right to edit, close or delete any thread or post without warning or explanation.
  • Members who select to violate any of these regulations will be subject to appropriate disciplinary action. The moderators of these forums reserve the right to define “appropriate”. This includes, but is not limited to, posting restrictions, account suspensions and permanent bannings.
