Welcome to the "Legend of Korra" board!

"The Legend of Korra" is a new animated series created by Mike and Bryan, creators of "Avatar: The Last Airbender". It was officially announced on 21/july/2010, and it will begin airing on Nickelodeon at some point in 2012. The series takes place in the same universe as Avatar, and it is set 70 years after the events of the original series.

This board is for discussion of all things "Korra" -- plot, characters, animals, mysteries, images, shippings, etc etc etc. Let your imaginations run wild!

Here's a few guidelines to follow in this board:

  • Be respectful of your fellow ASNers. Some people welcome the idea of a new series with open arms. Other people are sad about letting go of the characters we've come to know and love over the past few years. Others still may not be too happy about the steampunk setting. Members should not insult each other because they disagree on these things, or on any other topics. Be nice Smiley

  • No "Mike and Bryan are bad writers" comments. Because we know that no matter how amazing the finale is, there will always be some people irrationally hating on it. We understand that the series is not 100% perfect but please, keep your criticisms constructive. An example of criticism would be "The dialog is clunky at times, so I think the writing could use some work, perhaps by having additional writers to bounce ideas off of."

    Therefore, we are no longer allowing "The writing sucks" or "Mike and Bryan suck as writers and they never should have wasted so much time on stupid poorly-written love triangles"" or "The creators ruined the story because the writing sucks", etc. Irrational hate rants are considered bashing and WILL warrant a two week probation. If you don't write constructive criticism after your probation, you WILL be banned permanently. ASN is a fan site, not a hate site and certainly not a platform for you to spew your hate rant. You can take that to a private blogging space.

  • Keep all spoilers in the Korra Spoilers Board. For a detailed explanation of what counts as a spoiler and what doesn't, please consult the Korra Spoilers Board Rules thread. If you have any doubts about whether what you want to post is a spoiler or not, you could either PM a moderator or admin to get their opinion, or err on the side of caution and post it in the Korra Spoilers board just in case. If you do that and it turns out to not be a spoiler then a moderator will move your thread to the spoiler-free TLOK board. For convenience's sake, this is the list of things that are NOT considered spoilers and are therefore allowed to be discussed in this board:
    Quote
    III. The following things are NOT SPOILERS and can therefore be discussed outside of the Korra Spoilers Board
    • Images and video from SDCC panels (trailers, screenshots of the trailers, slide shows, interviews, Q&As, etc). This means that images from SDCC are allowed to be used in avatars/signatures. Since some of the info from SDCC would still be considered as spoilers (plot details, character development; see List I), make sure to label SDCC-related threads clearly (just adding [SDCC] in the title should be enough) in case the mods need to move them to the Korra Spoilers board.
    • Speculation about future episodes, as long as no spoiler details are discussed (note that there will be official threads in the Legend of Korra board for speculation about every new episode, just like there used to be in the ATLA board).
    • Names of characters, mentioned at SDCC or elsewhere.
    • Episode titles, when released by official sources (SDCC panels, Nick schedule website, TV guide, etc). This also applies to the short episode description blurbs that usually accompany the TV listing for the episode.
    • Advertisements on TV channels, regardless if they're in the US or in other countries.
    But do please still consult the Korra Spoilers Board Rules thread for the full details.

  • Keep things PG-13 or below. This is pretty self-explanatory.

We reserve the right to modify these rules in the future if a modification is needed. And as always, all Forum Rules apply.

Have fun! Cheesy

Now that the leaks have started, this is just a friendly reminder that we do have a sub-board dedicated for Legend of Korra spoilers. It's right here in the TLOK board, and it's titled "TLOK Spoilers". You can find it by clicking this link:

*** TLOK SPOILERS BOARD ***

Please keep all discussions about leaked spoilery materials in the TLOK Spoilers board, thanks.

Another important announcement about spoilers



The recent leaks are unauthorized, and as such posting links to the leaked videos is NOT ALLOWED.

We will be removing any links that have already been posted, and anyone who posts any links to the illegal leaks from now on will be BANNED FOR SEVEN DAYS.

You can continue discussing the spoilers in the TLOK Spoilers Board but you cannot post any links to the leaks in the threads.

Another equally important announcement about Spoilers

Do not attempt to ask how/where to get links to the illegal leaks in any shape or form. That includes "I wish someone would PM me" or "SOMEONE PM ME NOW!!!"

If you have links to the leaks, please keep it to yourself and do not post "PM me for the leaks!"

Any attempt to do so will warrant a 3 day ban.

Yet another note about spoilers -- from here:



A few important notes regarding the first episode
(before the TV premiere date)




I. Note The First:

All discussion of this episode MUST be constrained to the TLOK Spoilers board. The episode hasn't been broadcast yet so it's still technically a spoiler.



II. Note The Second:

I'm going to allow posting of images from the episode, but they MUST stay within the TLOK Spoilers board. No images from the episode (that we hadn't seen before in legit previews) in avatars or signatures, and no images from the episode in Pai Sho games or anywhere outside of the TLOK Spoilers board.



III. Note The Third:

No linking to streams or downloads of this episode will be allowed, unless/until Nickelodeon explicitly gives permission for the general public to watch.

Meaning: if and/or when the episode gets released through Korra Nation, we will allow people to post links to the KN streams/downloads.

However, since it's not clear that the episode hosted on nickpress is supposed to be viewed by everyone, then we won't be allowing any linking to watch the episode online or to download it. Same goes for posting the username/password needed to watch the episode in that site -- no more mentions of that from now on, ok?




Edit -- And if for some reason this isn't clear, the 7-day tempban for posting a video link rule also applies here.

See here for the spoiler policy regarding the Korra Nation episodes:


Question:
The first two episodes will be released via Korra Nation. Does that mean they're not spoilers anymore?


Answer:

It depends.


Scenario #1: The episodes are available only to members of Korra Nation

In this case, we'll be considering the episodes as SPOILERS, and therefore all discussion of them should continue to be limited to the TLOK spoilers board.



Scenario #2: The episodes are available for anyone to watch (region-locked or not)

If anyone can watch the episodes on the Korra Nation website, then they'll be considered as NOT SPOILERS and can be talked about anywhere on the forums. We will open the official discussion threads in the TLOK Episode Discussion board AND people will be allowed to use images from the episodes in their avatars and signatures.




So we'll have to wait until Saturday to see whether the episodes are still spoilers or not.

One more reminder about leaks. From the TLOK Spoilers board:



Apparently lots of people need this reminder. These two posts are from the TLOK Spoilers board rules thread:



REMINDER ABOUT LEAKS

Posting links to unauthorized leaks is NOT ALLOWED. That includes videos AND images. We will be removing any links that have been posted so far, and any links that get posted from now on will earn the person who posts the links a seven-day ban.

You can still talk about the spoilers in those leaks, discuss them in as much detail as you want (in the TLOK Spoilers board), but absolutely no links to the leaks are allowed to be posted in any threads or any signatures.




DO NOT ASK FOR LEAKS

Do not attempt to ask how/where to get links to the illegal leaks in any shape or form. That includes "I wish someone would PM me" or "SOMEONE PM ME NOW!!!"

If you have links to the leaks, please keep it to yourself and do not post "PM me for the leaks!"

Any attempt to do so will warrant a 3 day ban.




So yeah, stop posting pictures or links of leaks on the forums. Real leaks, fake leaks, whatever -- no pictures and no links!

If you want to talk about what's in those leaks, do so in the TLOK Spoilers board. This way we can keep the main Legend of Korra board spoiler-free.

A new rule has been added regarding irrational hateful complaints of Mike and Bryan being "bad writers".

  • No "Mike and Bryan are bad writers" comments. Because we know that no matter how amazing the finale is, there will always be some people irrationally hating on it. We understand that the series is not 100% perfect but please, keep your criticisms constructive. An example of criticism would be "The dialog is clunky at times, so I think the writing could use some work, perhaps by having additional writers to bounce ideas off of."

    Therefore, we are no longer allowing "The writing sucks" or "Mike and Bryan suck as writers and they never should have wasted so much time on stupid poorly-written love triangles"" or "The creators ruined the story because the writing sucks", etc. Irrational hate rants are considered bashing and WILL warrant a two week probation. If you don't write constructive criticism after your probation, you WILL be banned permanently. ASN is a fan site, not a hate site and certainly not a platform for you to spew your hate rant. You can take that to a private blogging space.

There has been an increase in the number of people openly talking about events from TLOK episode 201 "Rebel Spirit" which was shown as an exclusive for SDCC 2013. We would like to you remind you that it is considered a spoiler and please read the Spoilers guidelines carefully. You can only talk about the episode in the Spoilers board.

Book 2 has premiered so talking about episode 201 is no longer a spoiler. Feel free to discuss 201 in this thread and 202 in this thread.

See this post for the spoiler policy regarding the possible release of the Book 2 finale episodes on Korra Nation:

Question:
The last two episodes of Book 2: Spirits might be released via Korra Nation if this post reaches 10,000 reblogs. When that happens and the episode is released, does that mean they're not spoilers anymore?

Answer:

It depends.


Scenario #1: The episodes are available only to members of Korra Nation

In this case, we'll be considering the episodes as SPOILERS, and therefore ALL discussion of the finale should continue to be limited to the TLOK spoilers board.



Scenario #2: The episodes are available for anyone to watch (region-locked or not)

If anyone can watch the episodes on the Korra Nation website, then they'll be considered as NOT SPOILERS and can be talked about anywhere on the forums. We will open the official discussion threads in the TLOK Episode Discussion board AND people will be allowed to use images from the episodes in their avatars and signatures.




So we'll have to wait until midnight tonight (a few hours after eps 211 & 212 air on TV) to see whether the episodes are still spoilers or not.

Episodes 213 & 214 are no longer considered spoilers. Refer to scenario 2 below.


Scenario #2: The episodes are available for anyone to watch (region-locked or not)

If anyone can watch the episodes on the Korra Nation Nick.com website, then they'll be considered as NOT SPOILERS and can be talked about anywhere on the forums. We will open the official discussion threads in the TLOK Episode Discussion board AND people will be allowed to use images from the episodes in their avatars and signatures.

Even if the episodes are region-locked, it is still available to everyone in the USA and we do not consider that a spoiler.

There are threads (shipping, specific characters) which are discussing about the finale. They are NOT considered spoilers. We understand that there a people who are unable to watch the finale and we apologize for those threads having finale info. If you do not wish to be spoiled, we advise you to avoid ASN for a week until the finale airs on TV.
