These rules are mainly for the forum. More things are tolerated on the chatbox.
You get a warning for each minor rule breaking activity. If you stack 3 warnings, you get a ban.

These rules do not apply to the Outhouse rules. The Outhouse have rules of their own!

1. First and for most, you have to respect everyone on the forum. Some people may not share your views or speak English as good as you, but that doesn't mean they are allowed to be trolled. Trolling is allowed on the chatbox, with boundaries.
2. No spamming! If you do spam in the chatbox, you will be banned for 15 minutes and there's nothing we can do about it.  Spamming in threads is not allowed. Every spam thread will be removed and you will receive a warning. Spam threads are allowed in the Outhouse section.
3. Respect the authorities here. If you refuse to accept a warning, you will receive an instant ban.
4. Don't advertise other forums or sites. Only advertising allowed here is a channel of some sort or an account. (Facebook, Youtube etc etc). Videos can be advertised to if you want more views, just post them in the Personal Updates rather than Youtube Videos. Do not post other chats or anything that may take away users from this site.
5. Don't impersonate others, especially mods or admins. If you do get caught impersonating, you will be banned.
6. L33t, n00bz and text talk are annoying, so don't do it. Words like "haz" "helpzors" or any abbreviation of a word for no reason is annoying (exceptions are common uses such as lol, brb, gtg) If you do it to an extreme, you will be warned.
7. Do not double post. Although we encourage post count, it's not worth to double post.
8. No one-word replies or replies with less than 5 characters. They do not contribute to the conversation, so if you do it, you will get a warning. (Only allowed in Outhouse)
9. No MiniModding. It's pretty lame when you have to sell out someone. Just makes you look like a jerk, so don't do it. And it's the moderators/admins job to deal with the members around this forum.
10. Posting any malicious links with viruses or offensive pornography on the forum is not allowed. It is unacceptable and you will be IP banned if caught.
11. Any new "forum" accounts associated with any kind of new obsession that is extra to your original you will be banned (basically don't make more than one account). If you want a name change, just ask an admin.
12. Icons or Signatures can't be obnoxiously large. It's pretty annoying when you have to scroll down four pages to see a post. If you cross the limit, you will be given 24h to remove some content, otherwise an admin will do it without your permission.
13. Necroposting in a topic that obviously doesn't need more posts in (such as a "hello! I'm ...." topic or REALLY old topics that haven't been posted for a minimum of 4 months) is really annoying too, and it prevents from the more important topics showing up in the latest topics.
14. No Smosh videos allowed. 
15. Before voting in a contest, a poll, or something similar, please read the first post, which contains guidelines and potentially some rules that must be followed when voting. If you don't, you will receive a warning and your vote won't be counted in.

Cases in which rules do not apply:
- Rule #7 (Double Posting) does not apply for people who have opened a thread, then made a double (or triple, or quadruple, ...) reply to post an update. If you get warned for this, you can report it and the person who tried to enforce the rule will receive a warning.
- Rule #13 (Necroposting) does not apply for revive-able threads (the ones in which you can post your opinions), like "Favourite Mario Kart Vehicle", etc. The rule is bypassed because of the new members. It is not their fault that the thread had died before they even joined. Once again, you get warned, you can report it.


Forum Games rules:

The warning system is a little different here. You will get warnings for breaking the rules below. If you manage to have three warnings at the same time, you will get an instant ban which will last for 3 days. All warnings last for a month, regardless of how severe they are. You may get three warnings at the same time, in case you break the rules in three or more threads, which, of course, results in a ban.

The warnings you get here are not of the same type as the ones you get for breaking the above forum rules, thus, you wont be banned even if the sum of your warnings is three (for example 2 forum warnings and 1 forum game warning).

- You cannot open a forum game on your own. You must make a request in this thread: CLICK TO OPEN!
- You cannot "ruin" a game by posting irrelevant stuff. If you do it one time, the moderators (mods & modcops) are obliged to give you a formal warning. If you do it again, in the same thread, you get an official one.

New update, we are not afraid to enforce these rules, even though we're REALLY lenient on things, some times things can go far enough until something bad happens.

Additional information has been added, mainly for bypassing rules and giving out warnings. Please read the first post again.

Another update!

I have added Forum Games rules, which everyone must follow. They are separate from the standard rules and ModCops can give out warnings for these.
