    "Fakemon" and other hypothetical ideas like that are fine. We already have threads for ideas for new Pokemon and moves that you can post in, or you can create a blog post about your own ideas if you'd like. :)

    This may be the thread you'd be most interested in: http://bmgf.bulbagarden.net/f313/ideas-new-pokemon-12100/

    Yeah there is a section on the RP section which is called Private RP's. So you and your friend can create one where both and only you two can post in it, being if your friend is a user.

    Hello, I would like clarification about rule number 12. My question is that I understand that inter-site drama is prohibited, but are we allowed to reference those sites in a discussion? Some situations may require these references (such as a debate). Provided there is no intent to slander/dramatize but rather due to the sources' relevance to the thread are we allowed to reference these sites?

    Yes. Intersite Drama is more like complaining about things people have done on other sites and bringing issues with them or the other site over here. You're allowed to mention other sites, just dont bring any drama or issues you have with them or any users there.

    Is it okay to bump an old thread?
    I wanted to start a new thread in the video game forum but I've found that one already exists, but it's about a year old. Is it okay to bump it or no?

    Yes, it should be as long as the post is contributing to the subject of the thread.

    Does that include something like a TV-14 anime scene? Or is that too much? Like not gore as in exposed flesh or even a severed artery's worth of blood just like relatively big cuts, trauma, and small trails of blood streaming. Not planning on posting anything of the sort at the moment just curious.

    I'm assuming it does (but I'd rather be sure first) but does the "no illegal Pokemon content" rule include offering hacked Pokemon for trade? Or is the "illegal Pokemon content" just like the ones listed below the rule?

    Offering hacked Pokemon is allowed just make sure you say they're hacked.

    Out of curiosity, would linking to or embedding entire episodes/shorts (from any show) be permitted if they're from an official source, say, the official BBC youtube channel?

    Hi Bulbagarden! I'm a long-time follower of the Anime forum, but I finally signed up because I wanted to ask a question (and finally participate in some conversations!). If there's a thread about a new song, and people are wanting to just listen to it, is it okay to provide a link to a non-downloadable stream, like on Youtube or a fansite? Not a torrent site or anything. Specifically, I was hoping to help out in the 'New TR song in the making' thread. But I don't want to go against the Bulbagarden rules in case that's a big no-no. What do you think?

    How long does it take to receive a response to the Contact Us form? I sent one in a week ago and I've gotten no response from any of the staff on my issue.

    There is no specific time, it depends on how much discussion is needed regarding the issue. We will get back to you once a decision has been reached.

    What are the rules on defining necroposting here? Is it fair game for anything that's either:
    • on the first page, or
    • within a certain period of time?
