3. Use common sense and respect others.
Act smart, even if you aren't. Don't press people's buttons (i.e. intentionally try to piss them off). Don't insult other people's beliefs, person, nationality, or race; debate should be primarily intellectual, not emotional. Do not be sexist - chauvinism is just as disgusting as extreme feminism - both behaviors will result in punishment. If a fight/argument begins, do not participate in it - report it to the moderators.
4. Spam is only allowed in designated spamming areas.
Spam, though the definition varies, is a post which fails to contribute to its topic in a meaningful way (i.e. posting "Wow, that's awesome" in an art thread is spam; though it is related to the topic, it fails to contribute to the discussion).
Spam is rather like smoking; it's bad for you, and it makes life unpleasant for those around you; thus, for those of you who enjoy spamming, there is a designated "Spam Thread" in The Discussions lounge
5. Short comments are counted as Spam
So give reasons for your opinion. This also includes commenting on artwork!
6. No double-posting.
Do not reply to your own posts. Or, to put it another way, do not post twice in the same topic unless at least one person has replied since your first post there.
7. No swearing
We don't care how normal it is in your family, but a lot of this forum's members are rather young. We do not want to be responsible for destroying their innocence.
8. Debates and discussions concerning Religion.
We all know that those are potentially explosive topics, rather like a mine field. Stay out of the minefield - mines isn’t its only hazard. Oh, and Rock'n Roll is allowed, in case you were wondering. (<- the lame joke for today)
9. No Disturbing Material
No Posting Violent or threatening or hateful pictures ANYWHERE on these boards. doing so will result in a immediate ban and your account being suspended.
10. No advertising / linking to other websites.
This also includes advertising for other forums and manga/anime sites
11. No Swearing in the Shoutbox.
Swearing and cursing in the shoutbox is unacceptable. if you have a grudge or feel the need to vent out on a fellow member take it in the flaming room.
12. Do not bother uploaders without a very good reason
So do not PM/mail/ask them for mirrors, fixing broken links, updating the series and stuff like that. Read the FAQ instead. Also, "uploaders" refers to both staff and uploading members.
Post about a broken link in the broken link forum and it'll be taken care of.
13. This is an English Language forum. Japanese is allowed ONLY if a translation is given.
It is recommended that you do not violate this rule; failure to do so may result in the Manga titles being listed in Russian. Spelling is not that important, however, so no need to feel bad about it.
14. Please don't write in all capitals (LIKE THIS), or in that strange cap/no-cap method which some people use (LikE ThIs)
Most people find both of them very irritating.
15. Art & Literature Forums: 1 topic per art / literary form
So 1 topic for: drawings, fanfics, own manga, poems, short stories, long stories and other forms. In case of doubt, ask moderator in charge.
16. Do not start own Contests without mods approval
This means no starting a thread like "ART CONTEST!!!<3" without getting approval from the mod(s) of that section. If they say no, don't push it, or you will be punished. You can ask for reasons, but mods have the final say.
