Hi all,

Here are the revised forum guidelines. Ribbonbomb worked very hard to get these down in writing, so please read them!

1. If it's not fit for Miguzi, don't post it here. That means no sex or violence beyond what they would show on, say, Teen Titans.

2. No flaming other users, no personal fighting on the forums. I understand that some of you are friends or relatives in real life, but please keep your private quarrels private. The forums are not the place for them.

3. No art theft. If you didn't create an artwork or facfic, then please credit the author who created it. At the very least DON'T CLAIM IT'S YOUR ARTWORK if you didn't make it yourself.

4. No double-posting.
It's okay if your finger slips while making a post, that's just an accident. But don't make posts one right after the other, even if they are different. If you want to add on to what you said, or bring up something new, then click the "Edit" button. It's always there and it's a lot easier than making a new post. tongue.gif

5. No Spam. You get money for every post you make, but don't spam to do so. The more spam there is, the more unenjoyable the place will get. If you have something short to say--such as I agree, lol, sure, okay, sorry, I'm confused, what?-- then don't say it. If you agree about something, then great, but you should add in what you think about whatever it is. If you're corrected about something, don't post saying your sorry, that'll just lead into spam--just move along and if you have to tell the person "sorry", then just PM them. If you were really sorry you wouldn't have been doing it in the first place.

6. Multiple Accounts. Refer to this thread regarding multiple accounts. Ordinarily, one account for one person. That means no new accounts because you're bored with your name.

7. Name Changing. Refer to this thread regarding name changes.

8. Make your posts clear and easy to read. Use proper english and grammar. We need every member to write this way so the forums are always easy to understand. Make sure you speak in the appropriate perspective too--in other words--don't mix your "I"'s with "Me"'s. Make your time in English class worth something.
Punctuation is also an important part while making a post. It doesn't matter if you're too lazy to press the comma key; you have to clarify what you're talking about or else nobody will understand what you're saying.
Internet Slang, such as "u" for the word "you", "4" for the word "for", and "r" for the word "are" isn't allowed. This may be the internet, but that doesn't mean speaking like that is appropriate for every place on the web. There is no hurry to write that way as it is in IMing here, so remember that you can TAKE YOUR TIME posting. This also goes for 1337, StIcKy CaPs and ALL CAPS. 1337/StIcKy CaPs are both often used for jokes (as in I'M HaRdCoRe!!1) but that doesn't mean it's allowed in every post made. So please, avoid that if you don't want to be scolded.
Exclamation point and Question Marks are not allowed to be used excessively to emphasize what you are meaning or asking. The reason this is against the rules is because they stretch out the pages and are really not needed. Instead of having 6,000 !!!!'s, bold instead; it gives the same amount of emphasis without being annoying.

9. Smiley Abuse. Love the smileys, don't abuse them by spamming them. Just putting one " wah.gif " smiley gives the same effect on other readers than " wah.gif  wah.gif  wah.gif " and it's less annoying.

10. Irrelevant Conversations. Stay on topic, and if something comes up that you want to talk to another member about, PM them instead of talking in that thread. Very important in the thread to welcome newbies--posts that have little to no relevance to welcoming new members will be deleted.

11. Duplicate Threads. Say you have something you decide you want to talk about. The first thing you should do is NOT make a thread about it, but look through the Search Engine, and see if a topic about it already exists. If it does--POST THERE to talk about it. Another Example of Duplicate Threads is: TS mobiles. A thread already exists about it--but you can't find the price of the game. If you want to ask anybody if they know the pricing, you ask in that existing thread. It's STILL on topic if it's rooted with the original idea of the thread.

12. There's no need to moderate when you aren't a mod. Thanks for helping, but you're a member here, so it's not your responsiblity to correct others; we the staff will deal with that. If someone double-posts, then PM a mod the thread and where it's at. We'll correct them and make sure they follow the rules. ^^

13. Make Topics in the CORRECT area. There is nothing more annoying than finding a topic in the wrong section when it's very clear where it belongs. If you're wanting to make a topic, you had better make it in the appropriate place.

14. Website Advertisment. There is a certain section for showing your own websites, but you HAVE to keep a single thread for that site. If you update it or change it, make a note in your existing thread. Also, DON'T advertise your site in threads for other's websites. It's their thread for their site to shine; not yours.

You better talk to BunnyLover and Shelchel about rule #8 they do "internet talk" all the time. I asked Shelchel why she did that and she said you were supposed to do it on here and on the internet because it is "internet talk" rolleyes.gif

Oh. Those were written by Ribbonbomb back when we had a bit of a problem with members posting a lot of spammish or off-topic posts.

Don't worry about them too much, we're not being too strict with them right now because of the low level of activity on the forum.

Rule #0 added:

0. No child predation, no looking for dates. This is not Myspace, and you should not be looking for romance on the forum.
