MDL Rules - PLEASE READ!
Double, Triple & Quadruple Posting: Please use the multi-quote option when responding to more than one person instead of double, triple and quadruple posting. Every once in a while it will happen, but please be mindful that it doesn’t get out of hand. If you don't know how to multi-quote and want to know, please ask and one of your very kind MDL pals will be glad to help you!
Re-Posting or Quoting Pictures & Videos: Please be aware that if you want to respond to a person about their picture...rather than re-posting a picture again and again, try addressing the person in BOLD letters and referencing the picture with words. It can be redundant when it happens over and over again. Note that if you "reply with quote" to someone, a link will appear next to their name that will allow people to click on it and take them to the original post/pic/vid. Sometimes just using words can be hard to track on long threads, but if you "reply with quote" then replace the pic/vid link with words, people will be able to navigate to the original in a snap!! ~ Kawaikochan
Threadjacking: Threadjacking is carrying on a non-related conversation in a thread! For example: If you want to talk about Coffee Prince, the Buzzer Beat thread is not the place to do it! (Hey...It happens!) Try not to do this. It's not very polite when it is done over and over again.
Trolling: We are trying to keep MDL a friendly place to come and discuss dramas and make friends. A little teasing among friends is fun! Let your personality shine! But don’t be mean and antagonistic on purpose. Don’t be rude. If you have a problem or things are escalating, PM an admin or a moderator and they can step in to diffuse the situation.
Offensive Language: MDL does have a censor built in but be aware that extreme course language is not wanted or tolerated, ESPECIALLY if it's aimed at other MDL members. The occasional GIF/funny image with a cuss word is OKAY, as long as it's not explicit.
Provocative Pictures: MDL is a family friendly site. In order to keep it family friendly, please do not post provocative pictures and/or nudes.
Starting A New Thread: MDL has been around for a year and the forums have a lot of threads with many different subjects. If you have a great idea for a new thread, first take a stroll through the forums to make sure you aren’t duplicating an idea. For example: What dramas have you dropped? ~ There is a thread for that! And so on… Look before you post!
Spoiler Etiquette!!: Spoilers are only appropriate in Discussion Threads for Dramas and Movies. They are NOT acceptable in reviews or random threads. Please be sure to use the bold option to warn of spoilers and white out your spoiler text. There is a tutorial for this in the MDL Help and Feedback Center. How To Hide Spoilers Tutorial
Review Rules: Please be sure to read these rules when writing your reviews. #1 rule…Please watch the whole drama before you write a review! Episode Reviews are there for those who want to express their thoughts after each individual episode watched.
• Write your own reviews!
• Don't Include Story Summaries as users have already read the plot summary.
• Write why you liked or disliked the Drama/movie/show.
• Only write a review after you've seen the Show/Movie/Drama
• Do not post spoilers as you'll just ruin the show for those who follow!
• Do not post spoilers!
• Do not post spoilers!
Languages: MDL is an English speaking site so please have simple courtesy and use English when communicating. With two exceptions: On your personal profile page; feel free to use any language you choose when communicating personally or if you want to use Asian characters to express a thought or two in a thread.
Respect Your Admins & Mods: Please make sure you respect when an Admin or Moderator steps in to gently remind you of a rule or mediates an argument. It doesn’t happen very often but the above rules are there for a reason…lets all get along!
Your Admins and Mods are as follows:
Skye N Rain – Admin
Ji-N - Admin
LisNoir – Moderator
Ashu – Moderator
Dojemi10 - Moderator
The MDL Help and Feedback Center: Please look through this thread for helpful tips on how to write reviews, add dramas to the database, edit profiles and much much more!
Please note the Admin reserves the right to add to these rules as he sees fit. Have a wonderful day and Eat Cake!
