This is where anyone can discuss pairings-related issues from the Naruto manga. Everyone, no matter what pairings (if any) they like, is welcome to post.
Please keep these simple rules in mind:
- No bashing
Character/pairing/fandom bashing is NOT allowed, period. Any and all bashing posts will be deleted by Moderators without warning. Examples of bashing are:
"Haha, (pairing name) sucks."
"(fandom name) fans don't know what they're talking about."
"(character name) is useless/stupid/a b*tch."
You get the gist. If you want to disagree with an argument/theory/opinion, you can do it without bashing (see below).
If you disagree with an argument/theory/opinion, please show your logical reasoning why, and show evidence wherever possible.
Good: "I feel this theory doesn't stand up because... (quote manga evidence)"
Bad: "They don't know what they're talking about, lol."
- Quote carefully!
If you only want to agree with a post, please don't quote it! It's OK to just use their name, like so:
It's OK to quote posts if you want to highlight/debate certain points, but please try to avoid quoting posts in their entireity.
- Acceptable Evidence
Only manga chapters, official databook entries, and Masashi Kishimoto interviews may be accepted as evidence. The Naruto anime and movies cannot be accepted as evidence, because they often devitate from canon. If possible, link to the evidence (such as manga pages on OneManga) so everyone can see what you're talking about.
- Poke at it!
Even if it's a theory/argument that supports the pairing you like, don't be afraid to poke a stick at it! If it feels flimsy to you, point it out and give your reasoning why.
- No spam
This thread is for debating ONLY. Any off-topic/spam posts that don't contribute to debates will be deleted.
These rules are in draft form, so they may be finetuned over the next few days.
I'll reserve the next post so we can highlight good debate posts (no matter whether they support NaruSaku or not). So, if you debate well, you could find your posts pinned up for everyone!
Now, debate away.
