This should go without saying. Be a pal, not a punk. Unsavory behavior can lead to a warning, up to a ban. This also extends outside the forums, as public posts with a unkind message or post to members inside these forums will result in disciplinary measures. This same rule applies for attacking or shaming people who are outside the forums.
Spamming advertisements or promotions of something completely irrelevant to this forum result in you being immediately banned. No exceptions.
Don't post off-topic.
Posting comments that isn't relevant to the topic subject is distracting and generally frowned upon. If you want to talk about something apart from the topic subject, please post said comment in a different topic that matches your comment's subject. The only place this rule isn't enforced is in Idle Chatter, so feel free to post whatever you want there.
Do not double post.
Posting multiple times in a row to respond to a user's comment isn't needed. If you want to add new content to your message, simply use the Edit Button.
No trolling or flaming other users.
Do not be disruptive towards other members, or provoke them intentionally. NO hurtful messages none whatsoever. If you feel like you have been provoked or see others engaging in inappropriate behavior DO report this to a moderator. DO NOT put matters into your own hands.
Advertising an artist, an art gallery, or a YouTube/Twitch/Livestream channel is okay as long as you use the correct category. It should NOT be an advertisement for another forum, competitor, or NSFW (Not Safe For Work) material.
Please use English.
Since these are an English-speaking forums, very few people will not be able to understand you if you use other languages. Also it makes moderation really hard for our staff team. However you can speak in your native language ONLY IF you provide an English transcript with the original text. This rule isn't enforced to staff members.
Use constructive criticism.
Debates are fine and okay but don't let it get out of hand. Do not lash out or bash other users for not sharing your opinion on something you don't like about the Klonoa series. If you hate/dislike something about it, give an understandable reason why. Consider thinking in other perspectives.
Only one account.
Do not abuse multiple accounts to pretend to be more than one user. Mule accounts WILL be terminated and if further mule accounts are made, the primary account will be banned.
Do not post pointless messages, including those that stretch pages for no reason. Don't abuse certain privileges and BBCodes that are given to you. Invisible text is NOT allowed. DO NOT make posts with a bunch of pointless pictures, This eats up bandwidth and it not very considerate for those who use mobile and limited Internet data.
Keep comments clean.
Do not post comments regarding fetishes, excessive swearing, or any other NSFW material of any kind, this also includes posting about them on the shoutbox. Keep it PG-13 when posting.
Report to us.
If you see that a member is doing something out of line please take advantage of the "Report this post to a moderator" link, which is located next to every post in each thread. Do not try to enforce the rules yourself unless you're a moderator or administrator. If you have an issue with a moderator's actions, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be aware that we will examine your entire posting history and will act for anything against our rules. Contacting the administrator is NOT a "get out of jail free" card. Do not start angry threads or derail existing threads because of moderation. Keep in contact with us and we'll resolve the issue.
Shoutbox is a nice little place to share quips and other little things with each other but remember that everyone uses it and as so it can be hectic. With that said, please do not flood the Shoutbox with a thousand messages that would be ideal for a thread rather than other member's messages getting lost in the sea of text. If you feel the need to do a 1-on-1 RP, then please do so by whispering the member you're communicating with. Failure to be courteous in Shoutbox will lead to having Shoutbox privilege taken away per offender.
