Board Rules/Intros #7: Your Guide to Everything on the Lost Board. (Updated 07/16/12)



Welcome to the LOST Board!


we're watching you
We're glad you've joined us! This thread is the perfect place to start. Here you'll find links to every thread on the board. If you don't see a thread that you would like, just ask us here in this thread, or send a PM to one of the moderators and we'll be able to tell you if it's okay to get one started.
Introduce yourself!

How did you get hooked on Lost?:
The following are the rules that are specific to the Lost board which we feel will help us keep the board a welcome environment for all posters. However, there are rules for the entire realm of Please do take time to read the Official Fan Forum Rules and Regulations before posting. Remember to read them carefully and please adhere to the rules when posting. Failure to do so will result in abolishment of your posting privileges.

ANTI-THREADS
• Currently, we allow anti-character threads on the Lost board. We would also like to point out that although criticism is allowed please express your opinion in a constructive not in a bashful way. A friendly debate is fine, but please respect every poster's opinion. It is also important to keep any anti-conversation about the characters in the show. Talk that bashes the actor or actress playing the part will not be permitted. It is important that we respect each other and this includes the people that put so much time and energy into the show we love.

• Due to the high tension between shippers on this board we currently only allow anti-character threads. No anti-ship threads are allowed.

• Anti-threads on the Lost board are not allowed to use a title. Anti-threads alone come with some tension between posters. Naming the threads just heightens this problem because there is such a fine line between bashing and simply expressing dislike. As moderators we want to try to keep the board a peaceful place for Lost fans to come and discuss the show. This can't happen if there's constant debate over what an appropriate title for an anti-thread is to be.

• Lastly, we highly encourage posters that may be a fan of a character not to venture into that character's anti-thread. Chances are likely that you will not like what you read, and it will only serve to upset you.



AVATARS AND SIGNATURES
• Avatars and signatures that are designed to put down any fictional character or couple or their fans or which make any kind of threatening remark are not permitted, because they can be seen all over Fan Forum and they take away from the positive posting atmosphere that we strive for here.

• Keep your signatures within FF limits. Please see the Official FF Rules for your guide.


BASHING
• There will be no bashing on this board. We take this rule very seriously. It covers everything – posters, real people (i.e. cast, writers, producers, etc.) and fan bases. There have been problems with veiled and subtle comments against various fanbases and it will not be tolerated. Remember to respect everyone and their opinions. In an effort not to offend or hurt someone please remember to reread your comments before you post. Doing so will help ensure that every poster is respected and bashing is not taking place.

• In addition to that, lurking on opposite threads (those you don’t ship or appreciate) is firmly discouraged. Talking about what other posters have said in their respective threads in your thread will not be allowed.


EPISODE DOWNLOADS
• This is against Fan Forum rules. Links to any download sites will be edited out. Do not advertise websites that allow downloading of episodes. If you’d like to discuss with other posters, use PM.


QUOTING PICTURES
• We’ve been lenient about this here though it’s actually a part of the Official Rules. PLEASE DO NOT QUOTE PICTURES! That’s fairly explicable.


STAY ON TOPIC (AVOID CHATTY POSTS)
• Keep chatty conversations down to a minimum on the discussion threads on our forums, as they detract from legitimate discussions. Now, we're certainly not asking you all to refrain from saying "hey" to all your buddies on the boards, but please do not make that the entirety of your post. If, at the moment, you really can't add something constructive and relevant to the topic of the thread, then we ask that you wait until you can. Being off topic includes things like "Hi" or "How are you?" in a single post and posting only smilies. Keep the discussions on topic about character/ship that thread is dedicated to. From time to time we understand that there will be lulls in discussion, especially when the show is on hiatus for the extended period of time each year. We do take this under consideration, however, for the most part there should not be any off topic chat in the threads.

• We have the Off Topic Thread; use it for your convenience. Any posters caught red handed will receive a PM from us quoting their posts.


SHIPPER THREADS -- STRIKES
Tension between the shipper groups at the Lost board are quite high. As a result rules have been broken in the past. In an effort to curb the ongoing "shipper wars" the board uses a "3-Strike Rule."

The rule is pretty easy to understand. Each shipper group will be given a strike when a rule on the board is broken. Once the second strike has been issued, the moderators will consult with the Moderator Managers about a possible temporary thread closure. All strikes expire 6 months after they've been issued.

We understand that this may appear to be harsh but it has gotten to the point where a simple slap on the hand will not to the trick. Everyone should be respected on the board.

Some of the strikes we will be looking for are the following:
[*]Bashing of Jack, Kate, Sawyer, Juliet in the Copulator and Outlaws thread[*]Bashing and making fun of any couples. Constructive criticism and comparisons are fine, but it will be our discretion as to whether or not it crosses the line.[*]Bashing either fanbase or taking posts from their thread is not allowed[*]Lurking in the other threads is strongly discouraged and members should leave it up to the mods of that thread to control them (but by all means, if you see a rule being broken, report it)[*]Making fun of titles, or using titles that take jabs at the other fanbase is not allowed
Threads With Strikes

Mavie - 0 (issued: | expires: )
Copulators - 0 (issued: | expires: )
Outlaws - 0 (issued: | expires: )


Thank you for taking the time to read all of the rules. While it may seem like a lot, the rules contribute to making this board a welcome and serene place to post. We cannot, of course, do this on our own, we need you guys to know how to self-moderate. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to PM us.

Posting here is a privilege, so please do not find ways for that privilege be revoked. We would like our Lost family to grow day by day, we don’t want banned posters. You will be receiving PM from one of us if ever you violate a rule.

Your cooperation and adherence to the rules are much appreciated.

Name: Tia
Location: NYC
Fave Lost characters: Mr. Eko, Sayid, Miles Straume, Juliet Burke and Desmond Hume.

I have a love/hate relationship with Sawyer and Jack....

Honorable Mentions: Richard Alpert, Jin-Soo Kwon, Hurley and Benjamin Linus(for his awesome quotes lol)

Fave Lost couples: I'll just say when it comes to the whole Jack/Kate/Sawyer thing. During S1-S3, I was Skate all the way... but then Kate made me not like them anymore, cause it seemed she was only using him cause she was really in love with Jack, which through me off because during the first two season I had the impression she was into Sawyer more.
Jack/Kate I like more during S5-S6.. and I love them in the first couple of episodes of Season 1, but I never truly shipped a couple from that whole deal.

Now back to favorite couples. Sawyer/Juliet: It really came out of no where and I really enjoyed it more then I expected too and Sawyer grew so much when being with her, and she loved him for who he was. Sayid/Shannon, opposites really do attract. I didn't appreciate there relationship until Shannon died, I finally get why Sayid loved her when I kept watching more and more of his backstory. She was probably like the lightness to all his darkness. With Nadia, he truly loved her but she was with his brother... and it was just all not good. With Shannon everything was new and different, I guess.

Juliet/Jack - If it wasn't for him, no one would've trusted her in the gang. I just loved them during S3 and enjoyed only a friendship later on.

Penny and Desmond - There was just something about them that caught me captivated, I loved it.

Charlie/Claire - Not my favorite but they were my favorite during Season 1.
Also I got a love/hate relationship with Jin/Sun.

Why do you love Lost: I don't know if I can just say one reason but I'll say it's a unique show, it starts with a bang. A group of people from a plan [that crashed] that are on a Island. It's really different from shows I usually watched. I love all the different types of characters on the show, no one is just 'all too good' or really all the evil, everyone has a motive and a reason for being the way they are. I'd admit, there were times during the show where I was very confused but it was still fun to watch and complete in three weeks.

Fave Lost moment: It's actually the last moment 2x07 'The Other 48 Days' I love when the episode recapped everything that happened for some reason.
That Sawyer&Juliet moment from Season 5, Episode 17 “The Incident, Part 2″ was just amazing just incredible acting by Holloway and Elizabeth.

The show really did have some amazing moments, it's difficult to just choose one.

How did you get hooked on Lost?: I just really enjoyed the concept of the show, but I really gotta say I became kind of hooked during episode 'House of the Rising Sun' but I wasn't 100% hooked on it yet. I was just watching the episodes just to be watch it... I was just trying to hurry through the seasons honestly. So it really took all the way to episode 1x18: Numbers. I was surprised how much I loved the episode. It had me laughing because of the Hurley life events that was going on but it still remained a great episode, we find out how serious those lottery numbers are.



Sorry for that long introduction....lol

Why do you love Lost: It's always got me on the edge of my seat. I've just barely started watching it and I already put it on my list of favorites.
Fave Lost moment: So far, the imaginary peanut butter scene. Just too awesome for words. It's what makes me love Charlie and Claire so much.
How did you get hooked on Lost?: I rented it just to see what it was like cause Emilie De Ravin is one of my favorite actresses, and I just got hooked. lol
