We understand the irony of having rules about posting when the game itself is all about breaking those rules. So no need to point that out, thanks.

First a definition: There are two kinds of forums in Flamebate, Role-Playing (RP) ones and non-RP ones. The forums in the Forumwarz category and the IRL category are non-RP ones. All others can be considered RP ones but use discretion when posting in RP forums not in the Role Playing Geniuses category.

———

NON-RP FORUM RULE ONE: DON’T BE AN bumHOLE

The non-RP forums are for discussing Forumwarz and the real world in a useful and entertaining fashion. Don’t troll them up with personal insults, unconstructive criticism/suggestions/answers, or just plain annoying things like UPPER CASE text. Including in thread titles.

Let’s keep our Trolling fun for everyone. There’s a fine line between roleplaying a prick and actually being a prick. Don’t cross it.

———

NON-RP FORUM RULE TWO: NO NUDES

Images portraying nudity are not allowed in non-RP forums. This includes your avatar. They’re fine in any of the role-playing forums and up to your klan leader in your klan forum.

—-

NON-RP FORUM RULE THREE: NO AUCTION LINKS OUTSIDE OF KYOUBAI

We have a non-RP forum for advertising your auctions. Don’t advertise them in other non-RP forums.

—-

INSTA-BAN RULE ONE: DO NOT DIVULGE ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION ABOUT OTHERS

Full name, e-mail address, DOB, etc. Doing so will result in an insta-ban, no questions asked.

———

INSTA-BAN RULE TWO: NO SURPRISE SHOCK IMAGES OR BROWSER-HIJACKERS

When dealing with extreme graphics (shock images etc.), they are okay if linked to in the RP forums (with clearly indicated links, no tricks), but they must not be embedded. ANYWHERE, including the RP forums! Same deal with sites which hijack your browser. Failure to abide by this rule will result in an insta-ban.

If there’s any doubt in your mind about whether an image is shock or not, it would probably be in your best interest to get clearance from any of the moderators before posting it. Tubmail any of us a link and we’ll review it when it’s safe to do so. Make sure the link is clearly to an image file or we probably won’t look at it.

———

INSTA-BAN RULE THREE: NO NAKED OR HIGHLY SEXUALIZED PHOTOS/ILLUSTRATIONS OF UNDERAGE CHILDREN. ANYWHERE.

It’s almost certainly illegal to host these kinds of images in Canada and the admins don’t want to go to jail.

———

INSTA-BAN RULE FOUR: NO TUBMAIL SPAMMING

Spamming multiple users with tubmails is now a bannable offense.

———

INSTA-BAN RULE FIVE: NO ****ING WITH THE WIKI

Pretty self-explanatory, I think. Let me know if you need more clarification.

———

INSTA-BAN RULE SIX: DON’T PRETEND TO BE SOMEONE PERMABANNED

Because if you do, even in role-playing forums, we won’t take time to research it — we’ll trust you. And treat you accordingly. And if you’re stupid enough to let someone else use your account and they do this, that’s your own damn fault. (This rule to preserve moderator time.)

———

INSTA-BAN RULE SEVEN: DRAGCAVE DRAGONS POSTING RESTRICTIONS

Posting dragcave dragons in Sticky threads, EVEN IN RP FORUMS, is now bannable.

Of course they’re not allowed in non-RP forums (except for the ones specifically designed for them, in the proper forum) at all.

———

IMPORTANT NOTE

Note that all forums may have rules particular to them, and these are in stickies in those forums. Read those before posting there; bumuming that this post has everything of pertinence is not a safe bumumption.

———

TUBSWEETIE NOTE

Duplicate threads are popping up all over the place. When making a game-related thread, do a search related to your topic and see if something comes up. Check the forum you’re going to post it in to see if there’s the same idea right there in the topic list. If there is an identical or similar thread, just bump it. Dupes aren’t against the rules and won’t be, but they are annoying.

Well… someone posted a goatse in our old klan topic. I was going to ask that it be removed but we don’t use the thread anymore. The damage has been done, it seems. *Virtual_Eyes has flashbacks and gets a headache*

Just for the record, though, it’s not okay with us.

Updated with clarification about duplicating posts for Troll purposes:

In NO forums is it okay to spam with multiple duplicate (or near-duplicate) posts, whether in the same thread or over multiple threads. Especially when images are involved. While that’s very Troll-like, it’s still annoying to the point of distraction. Let’s keep our Trolling fun for everyone.

There’s a fine line between roleplaying a prick and actually being a prick. And I think the latter is what’s being discouraged here.

Roleplaying or not, you still have to admit there’s a bit of irony in this.

Should/can one roleplay in the IRL set of topics? If not, ok. If so, then can we have somewhere else to fail at convincing each other we’re right about our favorite tv shows?

The answer is not really. I’ve been talking with ET and will be working up “READ ME”s for all forums, so the guidelines are clear. I hope to have that sometime this upcoming week.

So if you’ve put an RP thread in there, and find it missing, odds are I’ve moved it to one of the RP forums.

Thanks. It’s always weird to be productively discussing something(ha-ha) and have a camwhore suddenly start talking about blowjobs, or somesuch.

NEW RULE:

EVERYWHERE in the Forumwarz section of the forums (Game Discussion, Domination, Forumbuildr) is a troll-free area, effective immediately.

Note that’s “troll” with a lower-case “t”. Trolls with an upper-case “t” are indeed allowed to post in here.
