Forum Rules

General Rules

Remember: you must comply with any warning or instruction given to you by our staff members.

(In shoutbox: applies to admins and above)

  • 1. Be respectful to other users at all times.
  • 2. English only, please. We're an English speaking community and we expect our users to respect that.

What Isn't Allowed
  • 3. Harassment: Don't harass or disrespect other members of the forum (flame-wars, name calling, shaming, etc).
  • 4. Spamming: Off-topic replies to threads or irrelevant threads/posts.
  • 5. Gravedigging: Replying to an old thread that is irrelevant now (old applications, old ban appeals, old irrelevant suggestions, etc).
  • 6. Advertising: Other servers or communities, products, etc.
  • 7. Multiple Accounts: You may not have multiple accounts for any reason. Using one to evade punishment is met harshly.
  • 8. Porn, Gore or Disturbing Content: Our community doesn't allow this content
  • 9. Illegal Discussions: We are not to be held responsible for any discussions on illegal topics and consequently don't allow it (this includes warez).
  • 10. Backseat Moderating: we have staff for a reason. Report anything violating a rule, but don't try and deal with it yourself.
  • 11. Ratings abuse: Inappropriate usage of forum ratings (negative ratings spam, "boosting", etc). This rule is under the discretion of the administration who will deal with each case accordingly.

Signature Rules

Shoutbox Rules
  • 14. Do not use colors that strain the eye like dark-as-hell blue, very dark red, or black.
  • 15. Using bots or auto responders in Shoutbox is not allowed.
  • 16. No images that contains bright flashes of light/color ("seizure inducing") are allowed in Shoutbox, nor anywhere else on the forums.
    .
  • All of the previous rules still apply to the Shoutbox.
  • All of our Discord rules apply to the Shoutbox as well (since they are connected).
Shoutbox offenders will usually be warned before action is taken, but this is not mandatory and is up to the admin's discretion.

If you see a user breaking these rules please use the report function to report them. If you're unable to do so, private message a staff member on the forum.
Note: Abusing the report function qualifies as spam and will be dealt with harshly.

Punishment
There is no set in stone punishment protocol, punishment depends on severity of offense.

Negligence to read or understand the rules will not get you out of punishment.
