This revision of the rules is mostly copied from what we had back in 2008, before we switched forum software. I'll be updating this to a nicer format at some point.Accounts
* Duplicate accounts are forbidden
. If you're having issues with your current account, contact Samui about it.
* Display names are not to be used in an attempt to impersonate others here.Avatar/Signature Guidelines
* Signatures may not exceed 600 pixels in width, or 200 pixels in height.
* Images in avatars or signatures may not contain pornographic material or anything deemed "Not Safe For Work" (NSFW).
* Do not embed music or videos in your signature/profile.Posting Guidelines
* Spam will not be tolerated. The only exception is, of course, the "Spam Arena".
* Try not to make posts that just have one word in them. If anything, try to use at least four words.
* Do not double-post unless there is a valid reason for doing so. There is an Edit button that you can use if you have anything to add to your post.
* Do not bump a topic that is more than a month old and not on the first page of a forum.
* Proper grammar and spelling would be greatly appreciated. This means do *not* abbreviate simple words (you, why, are...).
* Flaming of any type will not be tolerated here.
* Poe's Law does apply to the "Spam Arena" forum. Keep that in mind, but don't take things too far.
* If you believe that what someone posted goes against the rules, use the Report button instead of yelling at them.
* Plagiarism is not tolerated, nor will it be. This means stealing someone's characters, artwork, writings, and any other form of work that you did not do. Give credit where it's due. This won't be taken lightly.
* Swearing is allowed here, but use it to a minimal extent. It doesn't make you look cool or mature to use the F word every two words in the sentence.
* The Hardcore forum is there for porn in general. Keep it legal. No underage porn, and no bestiality. Your own NSFW art can be posted in the Artwork forum with proper warning and tags.
* As for pirated software, music, etc., I personally don't care how you've obtained them. Do not upload or link to them here.Shoutbox Guidelines
* No drama.
* Try not to use the Shoutbox as a substitute for the chat room
. Extended conversations should take place on IRC or in its own thread.
