Temporary solution here:

There is an admin access panel, 1 click complete backup of all pads and privacy settings so we can keep random people out. Everyone needs to sign up an account for that bit tho, so understandable if not everyone wants to and we just stay public.

Backup of all pads is here: You can actually download them and import them in to the titanpad. might be easier than copy/pasta. I don't know.

So, yeah, I know this blows. Working on finding a permanent solution. Bright side, I might finally fix the bot since that computer is now at work.

Also, the pad is completely intact. If there is a backup missing, just tell me, I can boot it up, find it and back it up properly this time.

5. Keep it tasteful. Mature writing is allowed here provided an appropriate rating (e.g. M, MA, NC-17, etc.) and the reason(s) for that rating (e.g. excessive swearing, explicit sexual content, gratuitous violence, etc.) are included at the beginning of the post, but that doesn't mean we need to be unnecessarily vulgar or offensive. Posts containing scenes of intense violence should also be prefaced with a warning for any mental triggers that might be activated for the readers, and scenes depicting rape are NOT allowed.

If anyone has a problem with this, please let me know.

Summary:
Shortly after the Megatokyo Demon Invasion, Megatokyo passed a law banning certain types of anime and manga. At its core, the law was targeted at the more violent hentai productions; however, some government-employed legal hack saw the potential it had, and worded it vaguely enough that any "violent" or "adult themed" material could be targeted. A large otaku demonstration protesting the new law was met with riot gear, tear gas, and rubber bullets. Things quickly went downhill from there as more and more "violent" and "suggestive" manga and anime were pulled from the shelves, until the final blow was struck with Megatokyo's signing of the "Wasteful Materials Prohibition Act," effectively banning all anime, manga, and video games. The Big Three relocated within the six months before the law went into effect, as well as the larger of the anime production companies; those who could not afford to relocate closed their doors. Many of them, however, went underground and continued to produce.

Though the local law enforcement did not consider the factionists an active threat, the city's large population of super powered individuals gave the police enough of a pause that it kept them from really enforcing the law. Thus, the task fell to the Tokyo Police: Cataclysm Division. Research began in earnest to find ways to neutralize the perceived threat. This effort lead to the invention of the Anime Nullification Field Generator, or ANFG. Preliminary testing showed great success, and they began to research the possibilities of mass producing the devices. An overzealous Inspector Sonoda seized this moment to finally rid his city of the factionists who had plagued them with meaningless skirmishes, fractures in reality, demon invasions, and hellish mutations of culinary madness.

Although not completely successful in removing them, Sonoda was able to keep the factions under control. There were, however, three major thorns in his side:

1. Erika Multinational, the largest corporation the city had ever seen, and owner of the patents for the ANFGs. They are, by and large, uninvolved in the situation, so Sonada gives them their space.

2. Followers of Great Teacher Largo (FGTL), the one faction that is almost 100% weapons based and has enough fire power to take on the whole country, or so the reports led one to believe.

3. The last and strangest of all was one man: DarkTan Canto. He had become an international icon by way of a tentacle monster on the "Oprah" show. Sonoda didn't dare overtly move against him, for fear of a massive public and international outcry.

Currently, anime and manga are still being moved underground. The two largest movers of anime and manga are the FGTL and the Order of the Rent-a-Zilla (ORAZ).

Leadership:
The TPCD is lead by Inspector Sonoda. However, as of late he has taken a turn to the darker side. He does this to protect his city, of course. In his mind, the factions have caused no end of trouble for his city. He has particular animosity towards those who follow Largo and Piro, those two being the source of his problems.

Anime Nullification Field Generators:
These devices were created to reverse or block the effects of the Laws of Anime, and Magic. There are three different versions of the generators.

First Generation: The first generation ANFGs were large devices that required a building to house them and a tower to project the field. They are not unlike radio towers in appearance or operation. They are heavily guarded with Patlabors, ground troops, and anti-aircraft gun emplacements. These are the most common generators in the city, and they are used to cover the more "high class" areas.

Second Generation: The second generation ANFGs were smaller in size, and use a parabolic antenna. This allows for great range, but only in a straight line. These are used to cordon off certain areas (the Hollows and areas around ORAZ's properties, for example). They can also be used to target a single individual up to 5000m away. Rumor has it that they are mounted on the peak of Tokyo Tower

Third Generation: These are the smallest of the three; small enough that a mech can carry one with little difficulty. They also have the same range as the tower-based First Gens. These are deployed to combat situations and areas that the Towers do not cover. There are no less than four stationed outside Tokyo Tower and the Cataclysm Division at all times.

There is ongoing research into smaller, highly portable devices that would operate similar to tasers. Such work has just begun field testing, but the devices are fragile, have limited charge, and varied effects. They also have varied designs.

Modified Rules:
One of the most important things to remember is that you are fighting the LAW. Killing cops or government officials will bring that LAW down on your head. Escalate it, and the military will become involved. Nothing you have can stand up against the weight of the CD, Japanese Defense Force, and the United States Armed Forces. Period.

There is a delicate balance of power between the remaining factions and the police, much like real world organized crime. Upset the balance and expect to face the wrath of both sides.

The TPCD, TPD, JDF, and US Forces are NOT NPC cannon fodder. These are soldiers who outnumber you and frequently outgun you.

The world of Megatokyo does not operate by standard laws, but by anime laws. The most salient of these are:
-Extreme violence leads to extreme property damage, but people die only very rarely, and only for symbolic reasons.
-"Heroes" can handle arbitrary numbers of faceless enemies, unless it would be dramatic for them not to.
-"Villains" (note the capital V) can be arbitrarily powerful, and yet are always thwarted.
-People get very worked up about very silly things, like Miho blankets, and are very calm about very serious things, such as nuclear annihilation.
-Swords win out over guns. Cuteness wins out over strength. Silliness wins out over everything.

The Factions are several groups of fan-persons who idolize, imitate, or generally admire one particular character beyond all others. Not all Megatokyo, the Clans characters are factionists, but factional behavior drives much of the city's activity. Factionists are often violent, but usually non-fatally, due to anime laws. Factional violence sometimes breaks out as real fighting, but often as "prank wars" where the main weaponry is pie or spraypaint.

The city government of Megatokyo is an odd thing; though some political leaders struggle to gain control over the chaos that is the city, mostly the city functions on its own, rolling along like a self-propelled juggernaut, kept within the lines of reason by the endless labor of the Megatokyo Police Cataclysm Division (TPCD), who carefully schedule earthquakes, demon invasions, and the like so that most citizens have plenty of warning before something earth-shattering happens. Not that most citizens pay attention - they continue about their unremarkable lives, oblivious to the insanity around them and threatening to consume them.

This tension - the obliviousness of the citizens, the craziness of the factionists, the chaos of the city maintained and exploited by the forces of the city's order, is the heart of what makes Megatokyo such an interesting place. Where Piro-Vision and Largo-Vision can come together with only minimal conflict, where point of view really is everything, is a world where some very real people live, go about their lives, and occasionally are very, very stylish.

Paragraphing

Paragraphing in Megatokyo the Clans is nothing special-- the rules here are the same as the rules all over the internet. Each paragraph is separated from the paragraph above by a single empty line. No exceptions. No weird grouping of paragraphs by varying numbers of carriage returns for reasons known only to the author. While most novels indent their paragraphs, the HTML standard specifically does not indent paragraphs, and since the forums are rendered in the world wide web, they follow HTML's example.

This section is an example of good paragraphing.

Paragraphs should begin when a new person speaks, when the dialogue itself would have a paragraph, and when the general subject being described changes. If you want a section break that's stronger than a simple paragraph break, you should use something to indicate what kind of stronger break it is.

-"Your stuff goes here" is used to indicate a character is speaking (usually English).
-"<Your stuff goes here>" is usually used to indicate a character is speaking Japanese.
-* * * is often used to indicate the passage of time. An empty line precedes and follows this indication.
------ is often used to indicate a change of place or point of view. An empty line precedes and follows this indication.
-Your stuff goes here is often used to indicate the presence of a flashback, dream sequence, or other mental action. If you need to do italics inside the italicized section, just undo the italics, like so:

Ash lay in her bed, thinking about past events.

Ash did stuff in a flashback. Damn I hate flashbacks. But Ash didn't have to worry about the flashback for long.

Ash woke up from the flashback, feeling peeved that she'd been used as an example in a wiki.

In other words, a paragraph should be like a lady's skirt: long enough to cover the essentials but short enough to keep it interesting.


Required Tags

Tags are those little things in bold you often see in posts to give them more definition.

Location: Says where a post is taking place. This can make it easier for other authors to join in later.
Timestamp/Sequence: It can be very hard to tell what's happening when. Timestamps helps people quickly sort this out without having to comb the post for temporal details like position of the sun, other recognizable events, and so forth.
Authors: People like credit for their work. When co-posting, it's polite to include their names.
Rating: If a post contains mature content, an appropriate rating (e.g. M, MA, NC-17, etc.) must be provided, along with the reason(s) for that rating (e.g. excessive swearing, explicit sexual content, gratuitous violence, etc.).

Summary:
-Summaries add clarity. When something wonky is happening in a post, it really helps to have a succinct restatement of what happened.
-Summaries are a great place to be funny or in character.
-When BozoCat (or whoever else) summarizes a thread, they use the summaries to do it. Those summaries end up being the wiki articles. Thread summaries are created by reading post summaries. If you don't write a summary for your post, it probably won't end up in the thread summary, and thus not on the wiki.
-Summaries help people quickly locate old posts. "Man, when was that post where Ash fought Niwatori Chinou and got turned stupid?" Much easier to scan through summaries than posts.
-Some of us high-and-mighty types won't read posts that don't have summaries. You don't have the time to write one? That's nice, we don't have the time to read one. So don't omit the summary to get people to read your hard work. We won't. We'll do the opposite.

Commonly Used Tags

Narration: For those of us who like to write in first person, it's not always clear who's talking. This is an easy way to establish that "I" is in fact Ash, the crazy necromancer, and not Nicholas the crazy vampire hunter.
OOC/IC: Stands for Out of Character and In Character respectively. This is a nice way of showing what's you talking and what's your characters talking.

2. Characters (and to a lesser extent factions, locations, and gear) belong to their authors. Please be courteous with your use of other people's characters, and remember that sometimes people have abilities and effects on their character that you don't know about. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES CAN YOU KILL ANOTHER PERSON'S CHARACTER WITHOUT THEIR EXPRESS PERMISSION.

3. NO GODMODDING. You cannot write for someone else's character without their express permission.

4. Have good spelling and grammar. You should ALWAYS read over a post before submitting it.

5. Keep it tasteful. Mature writing is allowed here provided an appropriate rating (e.g. M, MA, NC-17, etc.) and the reason(s) for that rating (e.g. excessive swearing, explicit sexual content, gratuitous violence, etc.) are included at the beginning of the post, but that doesn't mean we need to be unnecessarily vulgar or offensive. Posts containing scenes of intense violence should also be prefaced with a warning for any mental triggers that might be activated for the readers, and scenes depicting rape are NOT allowed.

6. No double-posting. Let someone else have a turn!

*To be updated as necessary.
