On August 14, 2012, Heartbreakers Community was born as a women's wrestling centric forum, catered to marginalized audiences within the wrestling fan community. LGBTQ+ persons, cis women and people of color were offered a platform to make their often silenced voices heard—loud and clear—notably leading to a women's wrestling evolution. Thanks to places like this community, we were able to see the gradual growth in women's roles within the wrestling industry, climaxing with the first ever women's main event at WrestleMania. Now, we look forward to an evolution of our own, nearly seven years later. We aim to take what we were able to do within the wrestling community and venture into cult fandoms/"nerd" culture as a whole, applying the exact same vision. It is our goal to make our voices heard once again, increasing visibility and diversity in cult media, both on screen/on our pages, and off. As the year continues, we look to accommodate all niche fans; those from the realm of comic books, anime, fantasy/science fiction, horror, video games, film, etc., though the broad scope of general pop culture will also be recognized on the side if you're just a regular old music or fashion junkie. Any fan base where the marginalized are overlooked, the Heartbreakers will seek to take over—through news, discussion, gossip, live watch parties, a very special and cutting edge new role playing game, and so much more.
Thank you for the years gone by and all the success you've brought us. Now it's time to look to the future.
And to the future, we say...
Welcome, Heartbreakers, to your new home. While we still aren't able to upgrade the software (to allow the forum to run more smoothly and more efficiently) there's been quite a few changes made to the design and our core focus has shifted, so please be mindful of them and utilize the forum accordingly. In terms of design, you'll notice we finally updated with a fresher, more modern, Tumblr-esque aesthetic, complete with increased avatar sizes (150 pixels by 150 pixels). Next, with the implementation of discussion based on movies and TV series with cult/"nerd" audiences, we've also updated our rules and regulations. Most notable: please pay close attention to spoilers. We increased the penalty for posted spoilers of any TV show or movie and we ask that all non-wrestling spoilers be kept under spoiler tags until a week after release for weekly episodic TV series and a month after release for movies and binge watchable TV series (all unless the thread is labeled with a spoiler warning). Wrestling spoilers must be kept under tags until its airing. Lastly, regarding "fandom" threads (formerly known as fan base threads), please be sure to discuss with an admin first. If none are available, speak to a member of our moderation team and be sure to keep the opening post tidy and organized. The same rule applies for live chat threads for non-wrestling shows. Some previous threads were archived and hidden from view.
Please direct any immediate questions you have to this thread or to questions or concerns, tagging a member of admin, though we tried to make everything pretty straight forward in terms of its new or previously existing function. Also, if you notice any glitches or something (e.g. a thread) is out of place, please let us know. Enjoy!
