This card exists to outline the guidelines for this community! Please read them carefully and let us know if you have any questions!
First of all, who are you?
I'm @shannonl5 the Q4 moderator! And the lovely @amobigbang is supporting me as an Honorary Avenger! You can always message us if you need help! Or if you're just bored. We'd both love to hear from you.
Please be careful when you post in multiple communities.
Cards that feature a Marvel character and a character from Star Wars (thank you @MoisEsGaray for this example) are totally okay. But please don't post a card about who your favorite anime character is- there's a much better place for that! Your community will thank you.
What should I share here?
Vingle is an amazing space because there are so many different people here! You can share:
Your Marvel fan art/cosplays
Background about your favorite Marvel characters
News about new Marvel releases
Marvel fanfiction or meta
Speculation about upcoming Marvel movies, series, or comics
Leaks, set photos, or other Marvel spoilers (please warn us!)
Anything else related to how much you love Marvel!
Out of respect to the younger fans among us, please try to keep the things you share PG-13 or lower. That means: not a lot of gore or violence and no explicit sexual content. Since often Marvel goes a little Rated R, please don't include those images as the first one in your card. Or, keep them in a collection you share with older fans, and not the community at large. Let's keep our safe safe for everyone to enjoy!
What should I do here?
You should come here to have FUN! Everyone is here because we love Marvel and we want to love it together. We're like a family. We mess around, sometimes we disagree, but we're all here because we care about the same awesome things. This is not a community where we insult or hurt one another, or punish each other when we make mistakes. When we have misunderstandings, we try to find out more. When we have disagreements, we respect each other.
Vingle isn't about shouting into the void or schooling haters.
This is your Vingle family. Gentle ribbing is what we do with our friends, and flaming is what we do to strangers. We're all friends here.
Again, try to keep things friendly! We don't use insensitive gendered or racial slurs, and we don't cuss each other out. It's all right to say that the 1994 Fantastic Four was a shitty movie, but it's not okay to call someone a shitty person.
Anything else I should know?
The best way to make friends here is to start commenting! Make a card to tell us about your favorite character or add your thoughts to one of our ongoing threads. We've got ongoing trivia challenges, character death matches, mad lib games, and lots of other cool stuff! Whatever makes you an awesome Marvel fan, please share it with us!
