The HQ Thread | Read the OP Before Posting

ATRL Administration

Recommended Posts

  • ATRL Official



The Headquarters is the main thread to interact with ATRL staff and fellow members concerning the ATRL community. While this is a fairly casual thread, it’s not meant for excessive general banter that you may find in Random Thoughts.


For your convenience here are some quick links you may find useful:
Rules & Guidelines | FAQS | Help Request (HR)


Here you can:

  • Discuss and ask questions about ATRL's rules
  • Discuss changes to ATRL or suggest new changes
  • Request threads to be closed, merged or opened
  • Request other minor things that only the moderators can do for you
  • Ask questions about ATRL in general
  • Discuss other things that are happening on ATRL
  • Tag an administrator if you have an emergent issue

While there are usually moderators around to answer, other members are also free to help you out. You're not guaranteed an official answer by posting in ATRL HQ. If you need one, send a help request. However, it may take several days for help requests to be answered. Be reminded that moderators are also not obligated to reply to help requests.


Always be respectful to staff and to other members. A hostile or disruptive attitude will result in a thread ban and a permanent warning point.


The following can only be done by help request:

  • Complain about warning points that you've received
  • Bring up rule-breaking posts that were left unwarned
  • Bring up avatars/signatures that you find vulgar or offensive
  • Request dupe checks
  • Request thread bans
  • Complain about harassment

Do not:

  • Use the thread to report threads or posts
  • Talk negatively about other members or fan bases
  • Start or encourage fights or arguments
  • Argue with moderators after being given an answer
  • Post or discuss PMs you have received from other members
  • Post a query or complaint more than once (send a help request if you need an answer)
  • Repeatedly ask when your HR will be replied to or demand an answer

The amount of low effort discussion threads (threads that do not foster any kind of meaningful discussion / threads that just you cannot have a proper discussion in) is out of control. In an effort to combat the reductive, repetitive and unimaginative influx of these threads, we have come up with the following guidelines. Any thread that consists of one of the below listed topics, or breaches an above rule, will be considered as a "Banned Thread Topic" and may be locked or hidden with no further explanation given.


The following topics are prohibited from being posted in any section:

  1. Low-effort discussions; 
  2. Baseless comparisons;
  3. Reaction videos and reviews (please keep this within the single/album thread and the aggregate review thread);
  4. Multiple prediction threads (please keep all chart and sales predictions within one thread respectively);
  5. Threads that are specifically designed to bash an artist/celebrity/fanbase (see Trolling Content);
  6. Threads about viral content on another social platform that isn't newsworthy;
  7. Personal opinions regarding music or an artist (post in the single/album thread or the artist's fan base);
  8. Milestone achievements regarding sales, streams or followers, except for the following limited circumstances;
    • Specific, note worthy and/or record breaking milestones;
    • First day, week and month numbers;
    • A song reaching 100M, 500M and 1B streams.
  • If you consistently post Banned Thread Topics, your thread posting privileges will be revoked.
  • The Banned Thread Topics list is not exhaustive. Any thread may be closed at the moderator's discretion.

Those spam threads are fun. ATRL pulling another Bebe Rexha perverts/LaToya LaLingo fun censorship. This is our Treat Myself era.

I say it rarely, but I dont think they want us to because they don't want to spend time verifying who's Black 


I guess the #Blackdontcrack thread would be ok
