Simple Rules

Post by King Enma on Fri Jan 27, 2012 1:50 pm

---> Please respect all other members of the site. This means no petty or nasty arguments, foul language, spam or anything else deemed unnecessary or rude. If you have a problem with another user or even one of our staff members, please PM an appropriate member of staff and they will deal with the issue as best they can. This means: No Flamming, No Insulting, No Arguing, or anything of the sort. If you have problems with another member, contact a mod or an Administrator and we will work something out. Keeping the peace is one of the top priorities of this site, so cooperation with each other is a must. So be sure to avoid problem causing topics such as Politics. Sports is fine, but watch yourself. Failure to comply with this rule will result in warnings, followed by suspension and then a ban.

---> Absolutely, positively NO arguing with a staff member's decision; if your a moderator, do not argue with an administrator - they have the right to make a decision unless it is just complete bullshit, then you may report them to the head-admin and get them banned. That sound fun? ^.^ Basically, respect all staff members decisions. If you don't agree with something a staff member has to say and it is something of great importance then PM someone who withholds a higher rank than them. Absolutely NO ARGUING WITH THEM. You'll be warned once for arguing, The second time you might get a warning and after that you won't like what will happen to you. You may, however, talk it out with a mod or an Admin if you disagree on something, but if they ask you to stop, stop.

---> Only members of staff may post on application threads (character and Technique). If you are not a member of staff and you post on one such thread, your post will be deleted and you may receive a warning. Anything else that a Moderator would approve. Please, Don't do this. We pick staff members for a reason and if you weren't picked as one that means we either don't need you or we don't think that you're capable of doing a good job as a member of our staff. Either way, it isn't your place therefore don't do it. If you absolutely need to tell them what they've done wrong, PM them about it and it can be their choice whether or not they want to listen to you or wait for a Moderator or Admin to look it over. Disciplinary actions will vary depending on the seriousness of the infraction

---> Please do not spam outside of the spam sub-forum. We will delete posts and issue warnings if you do not adhere to this rule. Spam gets annoying, no one likes it, and it makes the whole site look sloppy. If you do not know what spam is, it is basically a message that does not adhere to the topic, or is completely pointless and unnecessary. An example of this, would be if two people are fighting and out of nowhere, you post "((Bob is gonna win!)" If you do things like this, the post will be immediately deleted, and you will receive a warning, next time it's a temporary ban from the site. Another instance of spam is a constant posting of something, basically, if you post "I like pie" ten times consecutively or close to so, it's spam, this will get you temporary banned from the chatbox ON SIGHT. Spam out of the Spam area will not be tolerated. We want this forum to be as clean and organized as humanly possible therefore we don't want ANYONE to spam. If you do spam out side of the spam area you will probably only get one warning and after that we will take action, We don't want to have to ban people but trust me if we think you're going to downsize the forum we can and will IP ban you and you'll be gone for good. Just please keep this rule in mind before you make unnecessary posts.

---> This forum is PG-13. Adult content, foul language and anything else considered 'beyond' this age rating will be removed and can result in warnings, suspension or even an immediate ban. Take it elsewhere. This means that if you are someone who really likes to gore your topics up, then you have to either tone it down or just not join. This also means NO sex topics, either. Seriously. This is a Dragon Ball RPG, not an adult chat room. Kissing, dates, hugs and all that other good stuff is allowed out in the open, but everything else needs either to be taken to the PMs or not done. Period. Something PG-13 rated would be kissing and mild-cussing as a maximum.

--> Rule Addition: If you mark your topic as '[MA]', you may be allowed to have a gore filled cuss filled topic.

---> Advertising your own site is permitted, but only in the 'Advertisement' forum. Read the rules in that section to find out more. Anyone caught advertising in the chatbox or elsewhere will be dealt with by a member of staff, we will absolutely NOT permit advertising outside said section. It drags away members and is very bad for publicity. We want this site to phlorish with members, not everyone running off to join the "newest funky Naruto RPG" you heard about in a PM from some guy with 0 posts and 40 PMs.

---> Please do NOT bug staff about checking your applications, pets, or items. We do have lives and we know when things are needed to be done, so Please don't bother us. I know personally that I hate to come on and see around 20 PM's asking me to check things, it's just completely annoying, because people should have a lot more patience than that. You may ask a single person once at a time, but after that you will get in trouble if you consecutively ask, after being warned. If your stuff hasn't been checked within 48 hours you may PM 1 Moderator. Please do not PM more than one. If that Moderator hasn't replied back to you or checked it within 24 hours please PM an Administrator and one of us will do it. In the Message please state which Moderator you first PM'd. That way we can check your stuff.

---> No Canon characters, whatsoever.

---> Keep cursing to a minimum, please. We understand that most of us are big kids now, but that doesn't mean you have to go around saying the" F" word every other sentence. It really makes you look like a jerk and you may also come off as uneducated.

---> Death matches can be done at all times, so you can die in any topic unless you have formed an agreement with the other person that the topic would be "no killing" in which case, must be stated in the topic for official confirmation.

-Ex. A Day of Fun -[Sean Only]-
Even if you don't care who joins, but you still don't want fighting, you can put that in the title as well and that will work.

-Ex. A Day of Fun -[Open, No Killing]-
If stuff like this isn't added to the title, it's an open ball game. The staff won't listen to your whining, so you should probably take this seriously.

---> Please don't get too full of yourself here. Nobody likes a egotistical boaster or a show off, so please don't let things start to go to your head. If you are constantly boasting, bragging, and just getting annoying without even being able to back it up: you will be punished. However, you may talk shit if somebody trys you.

---> No Metagaming/Powerplaying/Godmodding, we all know what these are. If you have questions, ask an administrator.

How to Roleplay
Once you are approved you are able to roleplay! basicly roleplaying is typing what your character is doing, saying, and feeling. You can also think of roleplaying as multiple people writing a book. Each person takes a turn writing something and the next person has to build their next post off your post. When you are roleplaying add as much detail as possible. The more detail you add the easier it is for the next person to write a good post. Ill give you and example of how to roleplay and how NOT to roleplay

Correct Example (This is just an example, your actual post should be alot longer than this):
Jack walked down the street and stopped by the store. Inside the store was Jill. Jack had a crush on Jill for a couple years now and when he saw her in the store a blush spread across his face. "Hi Jill," he said, the blush obviously showing on his face. "Hey Jack," jill said with a smile. Jill walked over to Jack and they talked for a little while but when Jill's mom came she had to leave. "I'll see you later Jack," she said as she walked away with her mother.

Incorrect Example:
*Jack walked down the street and stopped by the store*
Jack: Hi Jill
Jill: Hey Jack
*Jill walked over to Jack and they talked for a little while but when Jill's mom came she had to leave.*
Jill: I'll see you later Jack
*Jill walks away with her mom*

When you are roleplay please use proper grammar. It looks better and not childish. Do you want your posts to look childish. Do you want your posts to look childish? I didnt think so. Proper grammar is good. Instead of y, wat, cuz, u, or idk; use why, what, because, you, or i dont know. If in the topic's title it says Private or Ask to Join you CAN NOT post in that topic without permission from the CREATOR of said topic. If the topic says No Killing or No Fighting in its name please respect the creator of the topic's wishes and dont kill or fight anyone.
