1. NSFW Material - Links with ample warning to borderline material will be tolerated. Anything over the line (graphic nudity, porn, victim pics, etc) will not be tolerated. If you are in doubt - PM a mod.

2. Warez/Drugs/Other Illicit Activities - May be discussed on an academic basis or in passing. No instruction, detailed accounts, or the like will be tolerated.

3. Spam - Members who register and immediately start posting spam links will be banned. Existing members will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis.

4. Trolling - We have no problems with heated discussion, but require you keep it to the subject at hand. If you're making uncalled for personal attacks or simply posting to get a rise out of another member, you will get very little warnings before there will be repercussions. As a corollary to this, do not randomly attack a poster who has not even contributed to the discussion yet. This is also considered trolling and will be met with the same punishment.

5. Do not try and play the rules lawyer. Continually skirting the line between rule-breaking and not is unacceptable. The spirit of the rules is important as well as the letter. Basically, don't be a jerk.

6. Bannings
* If you're banned, do not create new accounts to get around it. This will increase the length of the ban and may lead to a permanent banning.
* If you're banned, don't argue about it pointlessly.
* No posting on behalf of a banned member. Discussion of the member is permitted, being a loudspeaker for them is not.

7. Deletion of Posts - Do not delete or alter your posts to purposefully alter the flow of a thread. Deleting duplicate posts or making minor edits is of course acceptable.

8. No image leeching - Do not post images that are not hosted on your personal webspace, or a place where you have permission (ImageShack, Photobucket, etc). Either upload the image to your own webspace or provide a link to the url of the image.

9. Plagiarism - This includes (but isn't limited to) both writing and drawing. The basic definition is taking credit for other people's work, or trying to pass other's work off as your own (partially or wholly). For more on plagiarism, visit http://www.aug.edu/sociology/plagiarism.html or http://www.indiana.edu/~wts/wts/plagiarism.html.

10. Mod Discretion - Mods will oversee the community and will make decisions in regards to keeping the community functioning and working well.

11. Maximum Signature Dimensions
A few general guidelines towards the dimensions of your signature.
  • 50k image size
  • 175 pixels max. height (for images and text)
  • 500 pixels wide (not accounting for text that auto-wraps)

If you're having trouble getting things down to size or lined up right, just ask for help - we've got numerous members who will be more than happy to give you a hand. Signatures that break these guidelines will likely receive a PM followed by potentially having it edited for them.
