1. No spamming/flooding/"necroposting"
1a -- Spamming consists of everything that is not wanted on a message board. Such examples of spamming would be posting links to other websites with the only intent to advertise or making off-topic posts that do not follow the point of a thread. If you create threads that do not serve purposes on the forums, you will be given an infraction as the staff sees fit and the thread will be closed.
SPAM stands for: Stupid Pointless Annoying Messages. Don't be stupid and pointless and annoying.
1b -- Flooding is posting repeatedly in a thread without waiting for another user to post in it, i.e. double (+) posting. This can also include posting in numerous different threads with non-contributing posts in a blatant attempt to heighten ones post count. Accidents happen, but try to keep it to a minimum.
1c -- "Necroposting" is bumping old topics that have not been replied to in over thirty days. Any thread over a month old is off-limits and is considered as a "dead" topic. Do not post in a dead thread unless you have something worthwhile posting that contributes to reopening the discussion of the topic. Minor posts such as "I agree" do not help.
02. No racial or homophobic slurs
Racial, homophobic slurs, and the use of "retarded" are absolutely not tolerated on these forums and will result in an automatic infraction with no questions asked. We do not want our community littered with these kinds of derogatory remarks. We ask that you refrain from making any such remarks on the forums. If you have a problem with a user, please contact a member of staff.
Note: Calling yourself retarded is perfectly fine.
03. Respect other users
You are entitled to your own opinions about matters discussed on these forums, but you must be willing to accept the opinions of other users as well. If you do not agree with the opinion of someone else, discuss it with them in a professional matter and do not flame the user for having different views. Any types of flaming will immediately get a user issued an infraction. Also, threatening users is not approved.
Discussing something a user said or did is allowed, even encouraged. This does not mean you are allowed to flame and flamebait them, however, nor pick on them.
04. Do not post in the wrong forum
Although staff is capable of moving threads, please post your threads in the forum where it most belongs. We do not like seeing threads dealing with what you had for homework in a roleplay forum. If there are excessive amounts of this found, we will simply start deleting the threads instead of moving them. Failure to do this may result in removal of ability to create topics.
05. Do not re-register
If you have been banned and you attempt to re-register, you will simply be banned again unless you have permission from an admin. If you already have an account and you attempt to make another, the new account will be frozen and you will be given an infraction. This only makes you look like a dumbass and results in the account being banned or deleted (depends it any posts have been made). SEE RULE 11: Appealing A Ban if you are interested in being re-instated.
06. Use intelligence
The infamous "Please do not make posts that suggest your IQ is lower than Mark's shoe-size" rule. To put it simple, act like you have some intelligence and make it possible for other users to read your posts so they can understand what you're saying. Posting like you do not have any idea what your doing only makes the forums look bad and will turn other users away. It does not take that long to make sure what you're typing is legible and can be read by everyone. If you have to, invest in a dictionary. Warnings and suspensions will be given as seen fit.
07. Keep it clean
We ask that you keep the forums clean. For example, do not upload offensive images. The forum is open for PG-13-like content. Warnings and suspensions will be given as staff sees fit.
08. Antagonizing staff
If any user is found antagonizing a member of staff they will receive an automatic warning or suspension and will be subject to a banning if the behavior continues by the staff member.
9. No Advertising
The staff members understand what their job is, and the admin will check on that frequently. Therefore, all of us know how to do our jobs. We don't need advice from regular members on how to do our jobs. First offenders will be given verbal warnings, and repeated offenses will warrant a suspension. We ask that you continue posting normally, and let all moderating jobs to the moderators. Reminding another member of the rules is absolutly allowed.
10. Stop when asked
If staff asks you to stop doing something, stop it, or discuss it with them professionally.
11. Appealing A Ban
If a member has been banned, they may appeal to the staff in which we will review all infractions and general forum activity. Appeals must be written in a formal email to the admin. For a member to be reinstated, the majority of the staff must be in agreeance. If the member is re-admitted back into the site they will be placed on a one-strike policy for a period of 6 months, after which the oldest 2 infractions can be lifted at the member's request.
