Bump. There seems to be a ton of new characters popping up now. If you are adding, please be sure that you are looking here every now and then as not to slow down the process and to keep up with any new updates...such as the below. Please take Rakai's policies below and the one's above as gospel. Thanks.

1) I would think that large teams like the X-Men, Avengers, and what not are fine. Duos teams are no longer necessary now that we have the two on two function available for users to actually make whatever duo team of their dreams instead of going with established duo teams. Teams like for example: X-men, Avengers, Colonial Marines, Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, and even fictional families are allowed as a team unit as this also allows individuals of said teams to also be admitted to CBUB to compete on one on one fights.

2) Generic Template Characters need to have some sort of popular culture significance. Characters like Angry Mob, Dog with Arthritis, Raccoon with Rabies, Drunken Sister will not be allowed as they have no real popular cultural significance. Generic characters like Fanboys, Fangirls, Internet Trolls, Paparazzi, are allowed as long as they have popular cultural significance. In other words, unless these generic groups have pop-culture significance, don't expect them to be added to CBUB. Also real life gang organizations shouldn't be allowed as we don't want Nazis, Taliban, IRA, Bloods, Crips, Latin Kings running around.

3) Factually historical creatures? CBUB is not a Zoo. So animals really don't have a place here unless they are mythological or cryptozoological animals such as the Kitsune, Kappa, Nessie, Bigfoot, Mothman, etc.

I saw this site used as a link for Attila the Hun. Do you guys think that it should be a valid Reference site.

Someone tried to sneak in Adolf *uncreative* as Hate-Monger.

Granted, Hate-Monger is a Marvel character, his alter ego is infact Adolf *uncreative* and according to CBUB Character policy, regardless if Adolf *uncreative* does have pop cultural significance in numerous incarnations such as Disney *uncreative*, Looney Tunes *uncreative*, Marvel's Hate-Monger, *uncreative* is NOT allowed on CBUB's character rosters.

End of.

It's a censor feature. You can say his first name but the last name seems to be programmed on a censored list.

Erm, I'll just put this here since I wasn't sure where else to put it.
Anyway, while scanning over the characters in the CBUB database I noticed a problem with Garrus Vakarian's character summary.
It seemed to be a bio for Commander Shepard of the same game, rather than Garrus...
Here's the link to the character: http://www.electricf...s/show?cid=3856

That's a common thing on many CBUB character profiles.

It usually takes excerpts from Wikipedia and since that page in particular is about listed characters, it tends to list down the first few paragraphs.

Someone recently submitted "Communists" to the review bin. As one of those low level character reviewers, I was unsure of what to do. Sure, communists have committed some terrible things, but by that logic, a lot of other groups shouldn't be in the database either. Also, the debate against real characters is difficult to support here, due to the massive amount of fictional communists (Smurfs?).

Then again, the person submitted it as a realistic group...

Anyways, I'm unsure what to do. I realize serge's stance on politics, but communists have such a huge pop culture influence (having been the perfect villains for years) that denying them seems almost wrong.

So, are they in, or out?

No.

For one, the character in the comic is always topless and nude. Second...

Well, can you imagine the character gallery?
