3. Constructive Criticism and Critiques 

  • Constructive criticisms of the group/members/music/company are fully welcome on the forumCritiquing anything related to BTS does not automatically qualify as bashing or hating.
    • BTS and their company are not perfect. They're humans and they will make mistakes. Don't feel as if you can't (or that you shouldn't) call out their missteps just because this is a site made up of fans/stans.
  • There is a very big line between constructive criticism and bashing. Don't jump over it.

  • Impersonating staff includes altering your username/avatar/sig/etc. to mislead others into thinking you're a specific staff member or going around convincing people you're on the staff when you are not.
