My OT's Topicality Can't Be This Problematic (Requesting input on rule changes!)

This is the long awaited sequel to:

There have been a lot of complaints regarding what is considered off-topic on this board. After talking with the other mods, we are considering making changes to the rules for this board and possibly even changing the name of the board. What we need from you is your opinion on whether or not each of the following topics should be considered on topic:

-Dragon Ball Z
-Gundam and mecha

Also, we would like your opinion on whether or not the name of the board should be changed since it doesn't really reflect what counts as on topic anymore. If you want the board's name to change, what should the new name should be? As a disclaimer, I'm not sure if changing the name of the board is an actual option but I figure it's worth finding out what the board thinks in advance.

Finally, if there are any other questions or concerns regarding what is considered on topic on this board, please post them below.

are they anime or manga or related to anime or manga (vns and lns)? then they are on topic

so even though all of those things are terrible, they are on topic

also no, the board name should not change. just use f***ing common sense

No, seriously, just go by intent and not the letter. There was once someone modded for off topic for posting about an anime convention. That's f***ing on topic

I'd like all of them to be on topic, personally. The DBZ, Gundam, etc boards and such are pretty dead, it's best not to split them up IMO.

Just one anime board would be best.

Tokusatsu should be on topic. Share's a lot in common with Anime and Manga, doesn't really belong anywhere else, and I believe it has as much right being here as Visual Novels, Light Novels, Manhua, Manwha, Vocaloid, and Touhou.

Also, I think changing the board's name to Japanese Entertainment, Japanese Culture, or something like that wouldn't be a bad idea.
Unless Anime and Manga must stay in the name, in which case, I see no point in changing it.

Although, I don't think it's a bad idea for all of that to be on topic to be honest. Even if it is not, people will forget and post it here, anyways.

I say merge this one with Broadcast and Cable and call it Anime and Manga General

IMO we should just have one giant animango board where everything (including Toku, VNs, etc) is on topic.

Those seem like they should all be on-topic. I don't know what the new name of the board should be, and I must admit I'm rather attached to "OT".

Have you seen the Naruto and Dragonball boards?

They're worse about trolling and s*** posting than CE is.

I know I'm awful but it would be like 100 new alterlectuals coming here at once.
