I find the rules work nicely with the description Kat adds in with them. Much more than, like

No fighting

No spamming

No harassment

or something, which could come across as cold and oppressive. We want the rules to be accepted by the members, rather than simply followed. Hopefully every member we aquire will grow to love this place and can then easily respect the rules we have here, and not feel at odds with them.

Just a note to all members, the rules have been revised slightly in order to clear up some grey areas which we felt could cause confusion. Please take the time to go through and read them over once more.

Thanks.

I was curious about something on this forum so before I make any dumb mistakes. I wanted to know what are the rules for posting in threads that are about a year old. There are a few I'd like to post in, and maybe restart some interest in those directions, but I don't know the policy for resurrecting old threads. Please help me out? *puppy eyes*

ahh dead thread revisal ^^ Honestly hun, i really dont' have a problem with thread necormancy.  As long as it's 1. not a welcome thread unless it's your own and you're returning, in which case a new thread would be better.

and 2. as long as it was not a thread that was not an argument of some sorts that has been resolved. [or not ^^]

But if you found a thread that bares revisal? oh please by all means.

It's one of the reasons i do Not prune my forum. [at least, not as often as i should ^^] Sometimes there is a good topic worth bringing back, especialy from a new member.

:) So by all means... Make it Liiiiive!!!

[the electrical switch is over by the wall, Egor will be here shortly, and i beleive a good storm is coming tonight ^^]

"It's pronounced Eye-gore." sorry, couldn't resist either. don't think you'll get the movie reference, but worth a try lol.

I was wondering, what are the rules on posting stories?

there is a story section hun called Writer's grotto. there are i think 3 sections, yiff, non yiff, and something else that atm cause i'm exausted, i dont' remember.

If your story contians violence and stuff, in the title thread put NSFW

then, in the post it'self? put in like key words...that would help the reader know roughly what's in the story. :)

Thanks Kat. I just wanted to know if there were any specific rules like "no ..." or things like that.

And out of curiosity what does NSFW stand for? I like acronyms. They make things shorter and easier to type lol. :)

Well Sid... not really.

This needed to be done now for a while. I don't want you thinking that the rules were changed just for you, that would not be fair. We have had some serious issues with members coming on the forum and wreaking havoc on people. We had that one member that got banned in under 24 hours for harassing everyone, being horribly abusive, and we had to go so far as to turn them into the ISPfor threats on the site and it's members. The new rules protect everyone (even you Sid) from abuse.

The new discipline rules are designed to be totally fair. Everyone gets an equal shake under the new rules. No longer will anyone be able to claim that there is favoritism on the board. We all want to be fair and just. Its the right thing to do.

Lastly there are the Troll rules. A little extreme some might think, but they have been borrowed from several other forums that have instituted the exact same rule. It has proven itself to work on forums with hundreds more members than our own. The idea is to point out what trolling is, make members aware of their behavior, and show the rest of the membership (by the icon change) that someone is trolling the forum, or acting as a troll. It is not a punishment. It is an incentive to change behavior and to warn others that there is unwanted behavior going on.

I hope that clears that up Sid. I would hate to think we all worked on this the whole weekend just to upset you (or any other member for that matter).
