All right, ladies and gentlemen. The battle forum mods have decided that the time has come… for a test, of sorts.

For one week, starting today, the rules shall read as thus regarding DBZ on the battle forums:

DBZ, DB, GT, and all parts of the Dragonball franchise, may be matched up against and alongside anime / manga characters. This only includes characters who originate in anime or manga; it does not allow characters who originate in other media (like video games, comics, or movies) that get an anime / manga adaptation.

The one week time limit can be altered. It can be permanent if all goes well. If things don’t go well, then the time can be cut short. As always, read the battle forum rules. Please make sure that it still fits the criteria of a battle, and make sure that it is a fair matchup.

Don’t blow it, and – if you don’t like DBZ or anime – don’t ruin this for everyone else. Keep such feelings to yourself and stay out of threads you do not have interest in.

Users who go into threads just to slam DBZ will be given a warning, right off the bat.

As always, if there is a problem, contact a battle forum mod.

EDIT: The trial has been a success. The above rules regarding anime / manga vs DBZ will remain in place.

Sorry about that, man, only reason I did that was to get jedixman name in there too so he can unlock that thread.

I think this is for the best. This is the perfect balance of DBZ on the vine.

Look if you can see a debate between you and someone else about to spin out of control just don't respond to the person.

Some trolls were trying to get Naruto and Bleach banned recently. I hope that DBZ doesn't fall for that.

Do not flood the site with Z threads. Do not engage fan bases you know hate DBZ. This could be a major turn around for the site mates. Don't screw it up.

@ssjbatdan: as long as it's one person then of course not. But if like last time it becomes flame wars and tons of trolling fans than it should get rebanned. Not to say comic fans weren't in the wrong. Its just that you can't ban comics here.

@jedixman:

At what point does this place just become Animevine?

Half the fights in the battle board are nothing but anime vs anime BEFORE this unbanning.

He probably saw how civil everyone was debating in this thread. There were legit arguments and literally zero flaming or insulting.

http://www.comicvine.com/forums/battles-7/raditz-vs-new-52-wonder-woman-1654456/#44

Also can you unlock that and bump it, Jedixman, I am actually curious to see the debates, because they were getting interesting.

... no, because you clearly didn't read the rules.

It only allows DBZ vs anime. DBZ vs comics and any other media is still banned.

Feel free to ignore them as you please. Feel free to create comic book-based battles and only debate with comic book characters. Nobody is asking you to like anime or participate in the debates.

You mean 1 of the 7 total fights on the front page out of 38 battles that is actually a Comic vs Comic fight, that is not a CAV.

I would honestly deal with it easier if you just actually said that traffic is down and we want more numbers.

Or you could go with what I suggested 2 years ago, just make a battle forum for anime to make things easier.

Or, you know, this place could catch up to 2015 and have an ignore button.

I was on Electric Ferret in their battle forum for over 10 years, I left when this kind of thing happened.

@jedixman:

Hmm yes I see well this is a step forward in the right direction ad least.

Question: If you see that the users are mature and civil enough to be able to debate Dbz without it spinning out of control would you consider a allowing video game characters next?
