Forum Rules - READ THIS
« on: March 31, 2009, 03:04:18 PM »
I just wanted to create a thread to outline the forum rules so that newcomers know what to expect from this forum when they join. Of course, the audience of RPPR being what it is, we don't get trolling or flame wars. As the forums gets bigger however, the stricter the rules have to be so the quality of threads don't go down. Most of these are simple common sense rules or whims so it cause no great controversy in the community.

Quality = fun and/or intelligent.

- The first and only rule ever written by Ross was the one of anti-censorship. Roleplaying Public Radio doesn't condone censorship and if you censor yourself by saying f**k, motherf*cker or sh!t, a mod will come along and replace those words by proper swear words. Fuck, motherfucker, shit.

- Write in a way other people will understand. That means, avoid excessive typos, there's a spellchecker for a reason. Try to avoid abbreviations too. Some are acceptable but when reading becomes deciphering, there's a problem. Foreigners from whom English is their second language of course won't be shot, but are encouraged to make the effort to improve their grammar. English is MY second language and I've made the effort.

- Don't be a troll, ogre or kobold. We'll fuck you up. No flame wars. You can agree to disagree if you can't simply bring your viewpoint with a well thought out argument.

-No SPAMMING. We'll fuck you up. Shameless plug, I personally don't mind, as long as it's not advertising and it's relevant to the topic at hand. Spamming includes posting pointless shit threads. These threads will be locked.

-Don't be a kender sympathizer. We'll fuck you up.

-If you're going to post a topic or, really, do anything on these forums it better be for the fucking lulz humorous intent. The only reason anything should ever be done ever is for the fucking lulz humorous intents.

-No shotgun posting. Don't make a lot of no content posts, m'kay?

NO IMAGE LEECHING



Anyway, I'd like to hear all of your suggestions for rules to help maintain the forums the way we love it.  And I'd like to know if there's current users that for whatever reason might have problems with swearing, because of their job or whatever.


NO POLITICAL BULLSHIT IN THIS FORUM - Nothing that is designed to enrage people and anything else that detracts from the message board.

ALL IMAGES MUST BE SAFE FOR WORK

NO PIRACY DISCUSSION OR LINKS

DON'T LINK TO PORN

NO MISOGYNY OR HOMOPHOBIA 

NO WEIRD POSTS ABOUT WHAT SEXUALLY EXPLICIT THINGS YOU WOULD WANT TO PERFORM ON OR HAVE PERFORMED ON YOU BY MEMBERS OF THE RPPR CREW OR REGULAR FORUM GOERS WITH THE EXCLUSION OF ROSS WHO IS A HORRIBLE MONSTER.



As some of you are aware, the RPPR forums have a "Search" button that allows you to find appropriate threads to post ideas before starting a new thread. For those of you that are not aware of this, I made this handy picture:

If you see an obvious spam thread, report it and do not reply to it. I am just going to delete the thread and ban the user.

was it hard to sign up? I cranked up the CAPTCHA verification to its highest settings to weed out spambots but I wander if some legit people couldn't register because of that.

If there is no censorship why is it 85% of the time I cut and paste "lol :3" it shows up as "lol :3"

Because typically these things are not mutually exclusive.

Because typically these things are not mutually exclusive.
And the nature of these things can be learned quite easily through association, so the likelihood that you, or someone you associate with not being aware of them (since it is difficult to do RPGs alone), is beyond microscopically small...
