~Deckslists: If you want to have someone critique your deck, please post it in the appropriate section of the forum dedicated to the format you want to play it in. If you don't want to play it in a tournament setting, that's what Casual is for.
~MtGO/MWS Talk: Any talk about Magic Online or any other Magic-related software belongs in their own dedicated section.
~Card Shops/Prices and Trades/Sales: If you want to discuss where to buy cards online or to debate the value of a card on the secondary market, please do so in Market Street Café. If you want to make an offer or solicit offers for cards or other items, please do so in either the Trading or Sales sections of Market Street.
1. Follow all MTGS forum rules
This applies for everyone. Be polite to other users and do not flame, spam, troll, or generally be rude. Ignorance of our site rules is not an excusable reason for breaking them.
2. Card and Deck Tags
I encourage everyone to please use these.
3. Box Mapping
Discussing the practice of tracking print runs is allowed, but creating Box Maps is not, nor is linking to one. People attempting to make these maps will be infracted and the posts deleted.
4. Solicitation Rules and Restrictions Solicitation Rules:
All solicitation, promotion and discussion of articles, podcasts, and event coverage must be done in the dedicated official thread.
Content must be directly related to Magic the Gathering.
Off-site links must include a description or synopsis of the material.
You must wait 48 hours to solicit a new topic. You may respond to any questions or feedback directed towards you but please try not to spam these threads with content.
If drawing content from a relevant off-site article, quote ONLY relevant portions from it and/or link to the off-site article. Do NOT repost the entire article.
Non-Magic the Gathering related content. Any solicitations not related to Magic the Gathering may not be posted here.
Subscription-based or pay-to-view material may not be solicited here.
Users who do not follow the Solicitation Rules will have posts removed and may be subject to further moderator action. If you have any questions about your content please feel free to contact the Magic General Moderator team to have any questions answered.
5. Keep threads "on-topic"
This forum is a catch-all forum for Magic discussion which does not relate to a specific forum (for example, talking about how a rotating block from Standard will impact card prices, or the results of a Modern tournament). If a thread is more applicable to a different forum, it will be locked or moved at moderator discretion.
6. Official Threads
Official Threads are threads on topics that always get brought up and as such are better served by having all conversation take place under the same thread. Official threads are to be designated as such my a moderator and, if necessary, stickied. Please do not name your thread an Official Thread without approval of a moderator.
A few topics that were previously stickied were un-stickied to clean up the front page, those being:
If you want to post on these topics, feel free to post on these threads instead of starting a brand new one; I promise you won't get a Necro Warning (I can't say the same, though, for a Spam Warning if you don't contribute to the topic). Failure to do so could result in a Spam Warning/Infraction.
Some questions get asked all the time. If you want to ask/comment on something that's not covered by one of the above Official Threads but is still a common issue (such as rotation schedules, MPR issues, etc.), please take the time to perform a Search of the forum. Chances are someone has already asked your question (perhaps multiple times).
Please don't post asking: "Are there any cards that can do _____?" Both Gatherer and Magiccards.info can probably answer that question for you.
Please don't post asking: "Are there any shops in _____?" Not only is that sort of thing better suited to Market Street Cafe, Wizards.com has a Store & Event Locator that can answer that question for you.
8. Have Fun
These forums are for everyone's use, and the most important thing is to enjoy them.
