How is that a problem if we've done a thousand CJ from San Adreas threads in the games vs. over the past 5 years with absolutely zero problems?
"The Daemon lied with every breath. It could not help itself but to deceive and dismay, to riddle and ruin. The more we conversed, the closer I drew to one singularly ineluctable fact: I would gain no wisdom here."
Part of the rules will be specifying specific gear, venue, and "version" of the character.
That's pretty much par for the course in all versus threads on all of the interwebz.
There's absolute zero problem in trying to make a matchup.
For some rediculously geared individuals...say...comic book Ironman fighting a rediculously versitle character...say...Albus Dumbledore...
Just specify the venue and let people come up with stuff. It if turns out to be spite, just like in any other vs. thread, the thread starter can request it be closed OR a mod can come in and make that decision.
I fully support this for multiple reasons but a main one is the lack of originality that has begun to appear across the forum as alot of matches have been redone at least once and there is a great pool of other characters from t series that could be used to great affect.

No it won't. When it comes to things like that, generally it's stated in the first post of the thread exactly what is allowed and what isn't. If it isn't stated, it's not allowed.
We also have an additional rule in the VGVs; as far as the forum is concerned, only game feats are considered canon, and if feats from another source (like a movie or book or comic, if such things exist) are to be allowed, it also has to be stated. And then to take care of the fact that there are certain characters that are essentially invincible, we have a rule stating that for those characters to be used, they must lose that unbeatable element. The characters allowed in that forum cover such a wide and wild amount of variety, that we've made sure to try and cover as much as possible to prevent issues coming up.
Those rules work pretty damn well and have for years, and I believe that the MVF and Anime Versus rules are based off of the VGVs rules.
But fact of the matter is that people are more limited in creating threads in the various medium-related subforums, what this presents is an opportunity for new match-ups us nerds can argue and flame eachother about (That last part is a joke).
So yes, All Versus Forum ftw.
Also, RJ, we have never had problems with characters such as CJ before.
And there are far stronger characters in gaming than the Onimusha characters.
The rest of the mod team was/is against an all versus forum due to nobody wanting to mod the thing. That, and people didn't know how smoothly the overall pace of the forum would flow. I feel that this proposed forum will attract new members and breath some much needed life back into the board. With the right set of rules, and person(s) to lead it, I feel that it could become a thriving place.
It's all about presentation.
