Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
TV episodes, anime fansubs, and similar are questionable and will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis.
I'd like to know the current status of this subject. I've been personally posting links to downloads of unlicensed anime for a long time now under the assumption that it was OK. As I recall we used ot have a rule saying that doing so for TV shows that aren't out on DVD yet is OK, but since it's not there anymore I'll assume that this huge grey area is all we have left. I've also been told by mods before that it's OK.
If a straight answer one way or another is not possible, I'd like to know exactly how this is being judged and dealt with. What are the conditions under which it is OK to post something like that, and what are the conditions under which it isn't? Either way I think the rules should be updated to say exactly what is OK and what isn't, and under what circumstances.
I don't want to resurrect a dead subject but this is the entire reason I was arguing over this particular subject. I feel the rules on this are vague and encourage selective enforcement by our mods, and this is obviously not a good thing. More personally I don't want to wake up one day to find that something I've been doing in front of mods without consequence has suddenly become a jailable or bannable offense, as happened last time. The punishment was very light for the previous occurrence so I wasn't really directly mad at that, but the possibility of a recurrence with a more severe punishment made me argue the point.
So what I'm trying to do here is head something like that off before it becomes an issue.
