Rules
Posted Apr 04 2013, 07:14 PM
GLOBAL SITE RULES
These rules apply to every Out-Of-Character aspect of the site. By using the site, you are agreeing to these rules.

The Golden Rule of the site is that it's less about what you say, and more about how you say it. Constructive criticism is allowed, but bashing other members is not. We don't have strict rules on swearing, but cursing someone out or insulting your fellow RPers will likely get you banned. Use common sense, respect the other users, and enjoy the site! Now, on to the more technical rules:

1. Don't be a jerk.
Remain civil and respectful at all times, towards all members. Do not troll, flame, or spam. If another member is flaming or insulting you, keep your cool and remain calm. Report the offensive post(s) if necessary. Do not get into a heated argument, and do not flame or insult him/her back. Adding fuel to the fire is just as bad as starting it, and "S/he started it!" isn't a valid excuse for breaking the rules. Bigoted comments towards race, religion, gender, or sexual preference are not allowed.

2. Posting of inappropriate or pornographic images or text - including in your avatar or signature - is not acceptable behavior.
Usernames may not contain racial, sexual, or vulgar terms.

3. Advertising.
Do not make topics advertising websites, or post links or banners to commercial websites in your signature. Text-only links to personal websites or blogs are allowed, however.

4. Piracy is illegal.
Requesting or posting links to illegal download sites or other pirated media is forbidden. Do not plagiarize, copy, or steal someone else's work, be it from someone on this site or another.

5. Do not attempt to impersonate other members.

6. Do not post private information about another person without their permission.

7. Do not create duplicate topics, even if you think the original is in the wrong board. If it is, we will move it.

Global Role Play Rules
You must read and understand all these rules before joining or creating an RP. By joining or creating an RP, you agree to these rules. More specific rules are up to the person who creates the RP, but these are global rules that apply to ALL RPs.

  • Keep author prejudice and bias out of the RPs and stories. What you think of another member, be it positive or negative, should have no bearing on what your respective characters treat each other.
  • Overly explicit depictions of sexual scenes are forbidden, even in RPs with the "Mature" rating. See the ratings for more details.
  • Do not edit your RP post if the edification contradicts more recent posts by other authors. If you feel the need for such an edit, discuss it with the other RPers involved before actually making the change.
  • If your character dies in an RP, you may not bring him/her back in an official RP without the host of the RP's permission. When a character dies, he/she should stay dead. However, in nearly all RPs it is the choice of the author to allow his or her said character to die.
  • Treat everyone involved in the RP, regardless of title, age, gender, race, religion, sexuality, etc. with equality and respect.
  • Keep Out-of-Character chat in an RP to a minimum. When you really need to say something though, put "//" before the OOC portion of the post, or double parentheses(( )) before and after the OOC portion of the post.
  • We reserve the right to lay out any consequence we see fit for breaking any of these or any other rules.
