Well, looks like we are launching a bit earlier than originally planned. This site is fully functional, just a bit limited on some things as we get all the backend worked out. Our CSS is a work-in-progress due to some major differences from how reddit was set up, so that will be coming, it will just look a bit barebones until then.

For the time being we still consider reddit.com/r/kotakuinaction to be our primary site, but will be building this up as a proper backup over time. We actively encourage anyone who wants to coexist on both sites to do so, and have no issue with folks who have finally had enough of reddit's bullshit that decide to make the move here completely now.

Rules are generally going to be the same here as they were on /r/kotakuinaction, but we are thinning them out a bit as some rules no longer need to apply here due to different sitewide rules/TOS from above lifting some restrictions we had to deal with. We will try to get a more complete listing of the newly modified rules up soon, as well as get them listed/linked on the Sidebar and such. Automod is not completely operational here, but will be in the very near future to make that all a bit easier to deal with.

Please be patient with us as we get things in gear. I'll try to keep everyone updated on the progress of things, though some parts will be mostly self-evident as they happen (like the return of the banner/sidebar).

Awesome thanks for the update.

If anything I would suggest pulling back hard on rule 3 and then if you need to tighten up on it do it later. This will generate more activity and help with the speed bump for people migrating away from reddit.

Most of us were only on there by this point for KiA or KiA2 but drawing in the good content posters like BVR, TorontoDLTutor, scatteryourmonsters, md1480, YESmovement, CisSiberianOrchestra etc.to start submitting will help the transition.

BVR is already here (he just had to get to bed finally), and we reached out to md1957 as well before making the public announcement. Other users may or may not come, we will just have to see where things end up.

Rule 3 should end up lighter than it currently is, but we have a lot of debate to have over which parts will stay, which will be able to be cut back, and which parts are intended to stop specific behavior tying into other rules (usually R1 and R7) that may have alternative methods of dealing with the problem they were there to address.
