    Hello and welcome to the RWBY VOL.4 IN-DEPTH DISCUSSION AND SPOILERS THREAD. This is the place to discuss the future and next volume of the RWBY saga from now until Vol 4 ends. Have fun, spoilers abound.

    Hey gang, welcome to the Volume 4 version of the RWBY In-depth discussion and spoilers thread! It’s great to be here. I’m AgentWashingtub008, a resident site-camper and crackpot theorist. Now, it might be a while (even in the “Year of RWBY”) until we get to see the next major installment of the RWBY saga. Untill then (and with the game, the manga, and who knows what else) this will be the perfect place for you to jump into the conversation about the future in RWBY with your reactions, analysis, theorizing, crackpottery, arguments, research, fangirl/boying, arguments and general fun. You just need to like in-depth discussion about a show you like. It’ll be a blast!


    However, before we begin here are some general guidelines to help make the forum experience go swimmingly. (That I ripped off from myself in the last iteration of this thread. (With some edits.))


    1: Write With Care: Grammar is good. No one is perfect, but as long as you make the effort to make your points intelligently, the conversation will be easy for everyone to follow and readers will know you care about what you are saying and respond in kind,


    2: Conduct Yourself Respectably: The forum is a shared space. Please do not come in here trying to cause a mess or rile up some people. It is almost guaranteed you’ll disagree with someone else here but acknowledging that and asserting your opinion are not mutually exclusive. Keep in mind a good argument is more persuasive than yelling, screaming, and tearing into someone else’s character. Also be aware that first impressions can last. Try and present yourself with your best foot forward to start a successful journey through the thread.


    Also the Rooster Teeth Forums are something viewed in public and the workplace, Please keep this conversation to a high “T for TEEN” level. We all swear sometimes, but do not treat this place like a gutter. We all know Yang is hot, Torchwick is a scumbag who deserves some trouble, Weiss can be quite the witch, and Pyrrha is pretty damn good in a fight. Even with the rising amount of content suggested for mature audiences in RWBY, it is still nothing R rated. There is more information in the Terms of Use you agreed to when you joined the site. You will be reported if you cross this line too far or too often.


    EDITED PLEASE READ 2.5: Spoilers: We now HAVE SPOILER TAGS which is pretty awesome. Please use them. Spoiler Tags are a helpful thing for posters, readers, and the site in general. Here is how they work. If you have seen a video here before public release or have just watched it at launch, tag your spoilers in even a spoiler-titled thread. Generally once an episode has been live for the public (and they’ve had the time to watch it in full) , spoilers are considered fair game, especially in the heat of discussion in a spoiler titled thread, but try to be courteous. Sponsors get things early so this is especially important for that group of people. The new release format may change sponsor and spoiler etticutte, please keep an eye out.


    3: Lurk: Have you ever have your mom tell you it is weird when you stay in the corner for a while to try and figure out what is going on before entering the social space? (Just me?) Well, in here that isn’t an issue. It is actually encouraged. By watching the thread you can see what is the tone and tempo of the conversation going on now. Also, instead of bringing up the same point over and over again, if you found something you want to continue talking about, you can reply to that thought someone else had and you’ve already got a foot in the door. Be careful though, if a topic is older (like a week) you may want to preface your statement or idea again. The key part of lurking is gaining a sense of where the conversation is at. It’s actually free to pay attention.


    4: Try to Stay On Topic: Some threads, like this one, are made with a specific purpose. Try and be respectful of that. People come to specific topic threads for that kind of discussion. There are other threads for more general talking (Bar Threads) and you will be more than welcome there. This is not a chat-room. As to the specifics of this rule, what consists as “on topic” is something related to either the show itself or a show-relevant argument. For instance if something that happened is reminiscent of Star Wars, that is fine to call out. If you are making a point about radio science and no one seems to understand it, an explanation is fine. If a point about the conversation needs to be made, make it. But remember, this is a place about RWBY the show and all points of discussion should be able to be brought back to that. (Not all comments obviously, people can get distracted.)


    5: Organize Your Thoughts: When reviewing the conversation in the thread, do not make an individual reply to everything. Try and make all of your points in one post with multiple replies. You can help distinguish where your statements are meant to go in the over-all conversation, but the “reply” function will help you for that. Post-spamming really just gums up the page and doesn’t present you that well either.


    6: Remember This a Group Effort: Like the previous point, this one is about not dominating the conversation. All of us are all on different internet connections with different speeds as well as having different schedules and circumstances that may effect when and how often we speak. If you have a lot to say, a double post may be appropriate, but try to leave time and space for someone else to talk too. If you are the last person to have posted and you have a really cool new idea, give it an hour or two if you can. This is talking WITH people, not AT them.


    7: Have Fun: That’s right, we should all be here because we enjoy RWBY and that is the most important thing. We are the greatest online community for a reason and that is because we can all have a good and respectful time together sharing the things we like and maybe even things we don’t like but even that should be a fine experience. Let other people have their fun too. A new conversation may start up with other people, if you have nothing, leave them be. This is a place where we all should be able to talk and have a good time, try it.


    And there is the long of the guidelines. We can’t predict everything that could happen, but following these generalities will help. We also need to work together to keep it fun and safe. Report trolling, flame-modding (where everything gets a -1 mod for no reason) , dishonorable conduct, and bullying. Team work makes the dream work, guys.


    I can’t wait to get started talking about RWBY in-depth with our reactions, analysis, theorizing, crackpottery, arguments, research, fangirl/boying, arguments and general fun. Before we go, the briefest of reminders: Don’t be an idiot or an asshole and look out for the Forum Yetti.

    I guess yeah, before I knew I could change the font I just thought that would differentiate that. Give it a minute.

    He actually has an RT account. @MammothRider. I keep tagging him in these threads hoping he'll post them himself, but until then someone has to spread the good word.

    Maybe we shouldn't get our hopes up for the Cinder vs Ozpin fight, like, remember the last time we were about to get a super awesome fight that's been built up for a long time? The one involving a particular kickass suit of armor?

    Yeah... But It's me and Epsilon, it kind of just happens.


    You want to move it into the other off-season thread? I'll still act surprsised.
