Hello, everyone and welcome to the CloudxAerith Forum! This forum was opened on October 25, 2004. Here are the rules of this forum:
This is not a Love Triangle debate forum. If you do not agree that Cloud loves Aerith, then please take your arguments to one of the LT debate forums listed here: Links to LT Debate Forums
1. Arguments, flames, spam, and trolling against Cloud and Aerith's love and/or against Aerith will not be tolerated in this forum. Sigs/avatars and log-in names which oppose Cloud and Aerith's love and/or Aerith will also not be tolerated. Members who make posts of this kind will be banned after 3 warnings from a moderator or administrator. Sigs/avatars opposing Cloud and Aerith's love and/or Aerith will be removed. Log-in names which oppose Cloud and Aerith's love and/or Aerith will be changed. The use of such sigs/avatars and/or log-in names is also considered a warnable offense.
2. The members of this forum believe that the only woman portrayed as Cloud's true love in games/movies/novella's by SE has been Aerith, and that the only man portrayed as Aerith's true love in games/movies/novella's by SE has been Cloud. We believe that Cloud and Aerith share a mutual love based on caring, devotion, understanding, trust, and desire for one another, and that Cloud's love for Aerith has endured beyond her death. We believe that their love is NOT based on false pretenses. The members of this forum also believe that Aerith was a beautiful woman who had the best of intentions toward all members of the party, who had the best of intentions toward saving the Planet, and who loved Cloud. Members who post, argue, flame, spam, troll, post graphics, use sigs/avatars, or use log-in names in opposition to these beliefs will be banned after 3 warnings from a moderator or administrator.
If you disagree with us about the love of CloudxAerith, then please take your arguments to one of the LT debate forums listed here: Links to LT Debate Forums
3. The members of this forum accept that ZackxAerith is a canon couple from the past. However, we do not believe that Aerith only loved Cloud because of his resemblance to Zack or that Aerith never got to know Cloud for who he really was. We also do not believe that Aerith continues to love Zack throughout the Compilation or that they are in a romantic relationship in the Lifestream. Any posts, avatars, signatures, etc. which directly oppose these beliefs are in violation of forum rules and will be handled accordingly.
4. Graphics which oppose or flame the beliefs of the forum members are not allowed and will be hidden or deleted by the forum staff. Sigs and avatars which oppose or flame the beliefs of the forum members are not allowed and will be removed by the forum staff. Log-in names which oppose or flame the beliefs of the forum members are not allowed and will be changed by the forum staff. The use of any such graphics, sigs, avatars, or log-in names is a warnable offense.
*Note to members: To avoid flame wars with other forums, please do not provoke other fandoms with inflammatory posts in threads for public viewing.
5. Any member claiming that Cloud and Aerith's relationship was based on negative or corrupt foundations (such as Aerith being an evil woman who manipulated Cloud) will be considered oppositional to the beliefs of the other members of this forum and will be banned after 3 warnings from a moderator or administrator.
6. The members of this forum are strongly opposed to the CloudxTifa pairing. Any advocacy of CloudxTifa will be considered oppositional to the beliefs of the other members of this forum. Any member endorsing CloudxTifa with posts, graphics, sigs, avatars, and/or log-in names will be banned after 3 warnings from a moderator or administrator. If you want to advocate CloudxTifa and/or argue against CloudxAerith, please take your arguments to our Debate Forum.
7. Insults, flaming, and harassment of forum members in any manner will also not be tolerated. Members who engage in the harassment of other forum members will be banned after 3 warnings from a moderator or administrator.
8. Moderators and administrators may warn for any post that they consider disruptive, harmful, inappropriate, or offensive to the forum community.
9. Any member whose posts frequently lead to debate about different aspects of the Love Triangle of FFVII may be warned by the forum staff. Three warnings may lead to that member being banned.
Remember, the forums are not your personal blogspace. Please do not open threads about personal drama, your thread will be closed and you will receive a verbal warning.
If you really have to talk about personal drama, there are plenty of threads in the Spam section, such as Things That Suck and Chitchat, and you can also post a link to your blog by visiting Post All Your Weblogs Here.
If you have issues with another member or members, use the personal messaging (PM) system to talk things out, or contact a mod or admin if you feel you need a mediator. Do not open a thread about how persecuted or unwelcome you feel or how mean people are being towards you. It will be locked and you will receive a warning on the warning bar located under your avatar.
10. Please try not to spam. Spam is a warnable offense. Spam is:
a. Very short posts with only a few words.
b. Posts that are not relevant to the topic.
c. Posts made only to chat with other members.
d. Posts with no valuable content, such as: "@#$!#@!! who cares, this is stupid!!!!!"
11. No double posting. Use the Edit button instead of double posting. Double posting is also a warnable offense.
12. Name changes can only be made every six months. Otherwise, it gets too confusing.
13. When duplicate topics are made, the second one will be closed.
14. Keep your posts appropriate for people of all ages to read. This includes being mindful of the following:
a. Do not post pornography or hentai. Doing so is a warnable offense, as well as any posts with obscene or sexual content.
b. No profanity in posts.

Rules may be amended as needed over time time. In the meantime, have fun!
