From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
The [Forums] are the "common room" of Bulbagarden. Based on a Vbulliten 3.1 format, the forums (commonly known as BMGf) have existed for as long as the site and are currently the only part of the main Bulbagarden site that are up and running. The Forums have subforums for all topics, ranging from general discussion in the Misc. Forum to Anime and Shipping discussion, to a Debate forum, a home for Fanfiction writers and Fanart artists, and a place for the Pokémon games themselves.
The forums are run under a relatively liberal set of rules which permits virtually all intelligent postings, with artistic liberties granted with regards to vulgarity. However, the general rules of all forums still apply. These rules include not abusing the CAPS lock, not flaming other users, and a policy against plagarism, pirating, and warez.
