    Hello,

    Though they are not overly nit-picky and strict, we do have some guidelines that all members must adhere to so that we can provide a great experience for everyone.

    Responses to guideline violations (consequences) can be viewed at the bottom. An indication of what type of response to expect can be seen in each rule. Though that is the expected response, it may be changed depending on the violation severity, at a Staff Member's discretion.

    All incidents will be handled privately.

    Respect
    Please be respectful to ALL members on our website. That means no racism, no sexism, no bullying, no trolling. If you have something against someone or their beliefs, keep it private. This is a no-discrimination website. Violations will be meant with either a Tier 1 or 2 response, depending on severity.

    Staff Members
    Please respect our staff team. They aren't cops, they just help the website run. Violations will be meant with a Tier 1 response.

    Profanity
    Limit use of profanity, swearing, vulgarity, and offensive language. Just don't make it too excessive. Aggressive profanity towards another member is discouraged, you could be warned/banned. Violations will be meant with either a Tier 1 or 2 response, depending on severity.

    Inappropriate Behavior
    Behavior such as this includes, but is not limited to, hostile conflicts with other community members, general rudeness, and offensive actions. If you wouldn't like someone doing it to you, then don't do it. Violations will be meant with a Tier 2 response.

    Drama
    Please keep all drama and rumors private, do not spread it. Public "bashing" of any member of this website is not allowed. Violations will be meant with a Tier 2 response.

    Scamming
    Don't scam or do business with real money. You may NOT send "Free iPad" links/hacked links to scam other members. Please be careful when you receive messages like these, and report immediately. Violations will be meant with a Tier 1 response.

    Spamming
    Don't Spam! Spam is:
    • Repeating the same messages.
    • Overuse of CAPS and symbols. !@#%$&*()
    • Advertisements, URLs, or IPs.
    • Oversize text or pictures.
    Do not: Double post, (use the edit button), bump threads after one month of inactivity, or request thread locks or post deletions from staff. Please use only English in public chats. Violations will be meant with a Tier 1 response.

    These are a list of responses that community members should expect if they violate the above guidelines.

    Tier 1

    A Tier 1 response is for a minor offense, such as Spamming. Tier 1 responses from a Staff Member can include a verbal warning and/or a temporary mute from public chats.
    Tier 2
    A Tier 2 response is for an appreciable offense, such as Inappropriate Behavior. Tier 2 responses from a Staff Member can include one or more warnings, an extended temporary mute from public chats, and/or a temporary ban.
    Tier 3
    A Tier 3 response is for the most major offenses, such as Hacking. Tier 3 responses from a Staff Member can include one or more warnings, a permanent mute from public chats, an extended temporary ban, and/or a permanent ban.

    Thanks for reading and following these guidelines. If you have any questions, please make a reply and a Staff Member will answer you as soon as possible. Have a great day!
