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.
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.
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.
