1 RULES OF THE FORUM: READ THIS FIRST on Thu Jul 26, 2012 9:11 am

1. The Mod/Admin/Owner/Co Owner is always right. What the Mod/Admin/Owner/Co Owner, goes.

2. If you have a question about any of these rules, or if you have a question about your ban, PM a admin or mod. Do not post about your ban on the forum. If you post about your ban on the forum, you may get banned again.

3. You are expected to abide by the spirit of these rules. What does that mean? That means that if the rule says "Do not talk about purple things" and you post talking about violet things, or lavender things, then you will get banned. (No, you are not being forbidden from talking about purple things. That was just an example). Do not try to find loopholes in the rules. You will be banhammered if you do.

4. Don't cuss.
Period. It has no place in our community. Attempts to disguise bad language or bypass the language filters will not be tolerated.

5. Don't be a jerk.
You’re welcome to disagree with another member’s opinion but attacking (flaming) and insulting another member is not acceptable. Intentionally starting flame wars WILL cause you to be banned for a while.

5a. What is a personal attack? A personal attack is when you post about a RxScape player on the forum and talk about them in a negative way. This includes announcing that somebody scammed you, or that somebody is a hacker. DO NOT NAME NAMES. Linking to their profile is the same as naming their name.

6. No degrading racial comments are allowed.
I shouldn't even have to say this. Seriously, you guys. Don't hate.

7. No disgusting images.
We don't care if you have a bad habit. Do not post it on our forums

7a. Do not respond to threads with inappropriate topics. If you do find an inappropriate thread, report it and then ignore it.

8. No Politics. No Religion.
We prefer that members not get involved in political or religious discussions because they often result in flaring tempers and flame wars. Yes, you may make a religious or political shirt. Yes, you may make a religious or political game. No, you may not talk about your political views or religious ideals on the forum. No exceptions.

9. No “this vs. that” posts (ie Ford vs Chevy).
These types of threads invoke strong opinions, flaring tempers, and often result in flame wars and mass penalties. These threads will ultimately end up being deleted.

10. No whining about moderation
This mostly applies to the operation and moderation of the online community. Members will be banned, threads removed, and so on based on the clearly defined rules. Publicly bemoaning the operation of the community and the way the rules are enforced will not put you in good favor with the moderators. If you have a legitimate concern or suggestion, PM a moderator. This also includes "pity threads", meaning ones proclaiming you're leaving, my cat died, etc.

10a. Do not post or discuss your ban history.

11. No spamming.
akdjfaskhj is spam. Posting the same thing over and over is spam. Responding to somebody with a short pointless comment like tl;dr or inb4b& is spam AND it's rude. Don't do this. If you are going to take the time to post on the forum, make sure that you actually have something to say.

Using horrible grammar and spelling is a form of spamming. Making a typo or spelling a word wrong is not spamming. tieping liek dis lawl is spamming.

12. No dangerous or harmful posts.
Posts that encourage members to participate in real-world activities that we deem to be harmful or dangerous to members will be deleted (i.e. lighting things on fire, jumping cars over people, deleting necessary computer files, etc.).

13. [REDACTED] You may talk about directly competing games.

14. No links to viruses

15. No begging for rights

16. No disrespect to staff

17. Just because you know somebody who broke a rule and didn't get banned does not mean that you get to break that rule, too. Instead of complaining how unfair the mods are, go report the person who got away with breaking the rule.

18. Do not advertise your own server

19. These rules are not complete. They will be updated from time to time. Make sure you check back every few days to see if a new rule has been added.
