New & Improved Forum Rules!

Post by Caprizant on 2nd February 2014, 11:54 pm

I'll try to keep these short and sweet. These are designed to be as loose as possible while still maintaining some sense of sensibility around here. Now, this is split into two parts: the rules themselves, and the Big Three guidelines.

The rules are as follows:

  1. No NSFW material. This is not just the forum's rule, but Forumotion's rule and, if not followed, could lead to the deletion of our forum. (NSFW is not limited to sexual content and extends to gore as well.)

  2. Keep avatar and signature sizes within reason. For some reason, it seems our automatic avatar resizer thingy occasionally has problems with resizing certain avatars. For reference, our maximum avatar size is 200x200, and if it's appearing larger than that, you'll have to resize it manually unless we find a fix for that sometime in the future.

  3. Double posting is allowed, to an extent. We're operating on a small scale here, so it's not a big deal; however, as a general rule, I'd suggest you not double post unless you have important information to bring to the discussion.

  4. Keep videos and large images in spoiler tags. Having them out in the open generally leads to more lag and more scrolling, both very annoying things.

  5. Clearly mark actual spoilers. This is especially (but not only) true when in threads specifically pertaining to the subject at hand, such as a thread on a specific anime. In addition, absolutely no spoilers should be posted in Let's Play threads on the game or series in question, even under spoiler tags.

  6. Don't be afraid to go off-topic. These threads may all have a focus, but if a discussion gets out of hand, let it keep getting out of hand. That's what this place is all about. However, when starting a new discussion, make sure it's in the right topic to begin with.

  7. Thread descriptions. To keep things uncluttered (but still easy to navigate), only threads meeting the following guidelines may get these:

    • The thread is a sticky, announcement, or global announcement;
    • The thread has multiple iterations;
    • The thread is in the Discussions, Let's Post Let's Plays, or Mission Out-of-Control subforums.

If a thread does not have one, then check the first post.


The Big Three Guidelines

The above rules should really be quite easy to follow as long as you follow these three guidelines:

  • Respect
    Respect your fellow forum members and respect yourself. Do not do unto others as you would not have done unto you. Being disrespectful to others is being disrespectful to yourself, in a sense. Keep things civil, and keep things silly. We like silly.

  • Radiance
    Be a happy person. Show us all your smile once in awhile. We like a good laugh and we'll kindly take in anyone who can give us one. Taking things too seriously is a bore, frankly; a lot of sitting around grumbling and moping. We don't like that. Have some fun while you're here, that's what this place is for.

  • Rhinoceros
    On the other hand, don't be an ass. If you're angry, do not come down like a raging rhino on our members; we have an entire forum just for that. Enjoy it, and milk it for all it's worth. However, if what you have to vent is somehow related to another member of the forum, it's best to keep it to yourself.

That should be it, really. If you guys have any input you'd like to add, by all means, feel free to speak up. In the meantime, happy posting!  KM Says Hi!

I've made an edit to rule five regarding spoilers in Let's Play threads.

In addition though I really should've been doing this all along, I'll make a post to this thread whenever I make an edit to or add to the rules, so you guys can see it.

I've edited the mention of avatar size to make it 200x200. Also, the reference to the width of our forum being a problem for signatures has been removed.
