    Rules and Guidelines

    Post by The Gatekeeper on Fri Dec 12, 2014 5:02 pm

    Every staff should substitute these rules whatever the
    situation may be. Real life dilemma or not.


    The Big Seven



    Rule I: NO ADVERTISEMENTS
       Except in the Appropriate forum. No chatbox advertising or linking in signatures, images or the like.

    Rule II: NO HURTFUL TROLLING OR INSULTING
        Do I really need to explain this one? Be respectful of all members.

    RULE III: RESPECT STAFF. STAFF MEMBERS' DECISIONS ARE ABSOLUTE.
       We are not just evil~ We are eeeeeeevil!!! Nah jk. We have good reasoning behind our decisions. Remember that staff is not limited to Administrators and Moderators. This includes developers.

    RULE IV: RESPECT ALL PLAYERS.
       This should be chucked into rule number three, but just for clarity's sake it will be put here.

    RULE V: NO EMOTE SPAMMING
       A little chatbox emoji game with other players is acceptable. However when one person uses nothing but emotes every three seconds, it can be a little annoying. It can also be taxing on those with not so good devices to join the chatbox. Please be wary of people who ask to stop emoji games.

    RULE VI: NO ANNOYING STAFF WITH APPROVALS.
       A friendly reminder every now and again is fine, a Pm is better since it will remain in the inbox as a memoir for later. But that guy who ask every hour on the hour will most likely get ignored for spite's sake.

    RULE VII: NO NOSE-POKING OF THE STAFF
       We decided the rules upon an agreement of several people's compromise. Don't be that guy who needs to point out every flaw in the rules just because better systems are out there. This also applies to the work ethics of the staff members. If one pulls a bigger slacker chain than another, don't harass them for it. They will sort that out themselves in time. If you have friendly suggestions, please send a polite PM to either the Site Owner or the Head Administrator. 




    Staff decisions cannot be based on personal opinion. Sites are always a community and at times staff is like the police.


    Offense and Punishment


    If a member violates a rule, they will receive a warning. A warning has to be clearly outspoken. In example: "This is a warning," should always be added into telling the member to stop. If a member violates a rule after being warned, a ban can and will follow.



    • First offense ban: Violating the rule again will result in a one hour ban.
    • Second offense ban: Violating the rule thrice will result in a day ban
    • Third offense ban: Violating the rule four times will result in a week ban
    • Fourth offense ban: More than four times can result in a site ban.
    • Fifth Offense ban: Permanent site-wise ban across all linked accounts.


    Deliberately and repeatedly disrespecting the Staff can and will earn you a permanent IP ban regardless of the number of offenses. If Staff violate the rules, they will be stripped of their position immediately without warnings, then get treated as a member. If staff violates rules, they don't deserve to be staff.

    Ethics and Expectations


    • Everyone on this site is here to have a good time one way or another, so please be respectful to everyone else on this site.
    • No harassing, flaming, trolling or verbally abusing anyone else on this site. Anyone that is being harassed, contact an Admin right away and we will take care of the situation. Please keep a screen shot or copy paste of the chat-log as proof of the misdemeanor.
    • No Spamming. This means that you shouldn't double post or post anything in a thread that isn't relevant to thread. This keeps threads and forums from being cluttered.
    • If you feel that there is corruptness with the admins or mods, or unfair treatment and you have substantial proof, then bring it to an administrator and they will further the investigation, dealing with it accordingly.
    • This site is meant to be fun for everyone. For that reason no excessive swearing, sexual content or overly graphic content is allowed in the ChatBox. Anyone who breaks this rule will be warned, if it persists they will be banned from the Chatbox for an amount of time. Any time from 1 hour to indefinite depending on how much this persists.


    Roleplaying and Posting


    • All characters are required to be approved before roleplaying. Please post all character applications in the Character Creation Section. To use abilities or equipment in a thread, they must also be appropriately approved as well.
    • You may only have ONE character per account. If you wish to have another character, please register a new account.
    • If you are inactive for three weeks without notice, staff members have the right to decide if your rank is removed in order to allow other members to take it.
    • Due to the nature of this site, many characters will take part in fighting. What happens in a fight can affect the character, such as missing limbs, power decreases, and in some cases, death. if you wish to prevent this, tag threads appropriately with the following - (No Killing), (No Fighting), (No Permanent Damage) etc.
    • All members are limited to participating in only two threads at a time. Missions, arena topics or dungeon topics are not included. You may be in up to two mission topics in addition to two normal topics, but you can only be in one arena topic at a time. You may only participate in one dungeon topic at a time.
    • One liner posts are prohibited. We require that your posts meet a minimum of 300 words.
    • Thread with the title [Invite only] requires an invite from a member in the thread as well as the approval of all parties involved.
    • Godmodding is prohibited. These terms can mean any of the following and are not allowed. Instant dodge - you are not allowed to dodge every single attack thrown at you. Please be realistic. Auto or instant hits - you can't automatically hit someone. If they can't block/dodge your attack, you may clarify so, but they must have the ability to react appropriately.
    • No Metagaming - this means that you cannot have your character know information unless it is given to them IN CHARACTER. If you know something your character does not, they cannot learn it without proper in character posts.
    • If you plan on creating a thread that will include mature situations, such as detailed gore/violence, please give it the appropriate tags, such as (Mature). Sexual threads are prohibited on the board. If you and another member wish to take part in a sexual thread, please take it somewhere else, or in the private messages.
    • Please refrain from using "txt talk". Use correct grammar, punctuation, and spelling. Nobody's perfect, but the effort is appreciated.
    • While we appreciate different styles of writing, our site requires posts to be written in first person.
    • Respect the posting order. However, we have a 24 hour rule that states that if a person in the topic didn't post within 24 hours and it's already their turn to post, the rest of the members can continue without them whereby they can just catch up later when they get on.
    • Posting Order: It will be set when the thread has all of the people in it will have for one turn. New people will be last to post, and it is cumulative. It does not matter if you bring in more characters,’ the order is based off the ACCOUNTS. You are NOT to change the order unless: No response in one week without temporary leave, someone leaving for over one week, someone quitting the site, or the person requests to be skipped. If you do, your post will be deleted and saved in an admin's notepad and sent to you via a PM. If you are a repeat offender, you will be barred from role playing for 1 day. If it continues, it may result in temporary ban.
