Rules for the nation of Blargaria! (Finished)

Post by Bryan Dacote on Wed Apr 22, 2015 3:46 am

1. There is no swear filter. Meaning you can say fuck, shit, whatever. I trust you all are reasonably mature enough.

2. Please refrain from fighting/arguments/drama. RP/joke fighting is fine. I can understand disagreements and debates but please refrain from letting it escalate to open arguments. I understand drama at times is unavoidable. But we can at least try.

3. No excessive trolling; if someone asks you to kindly stop; do so. If you do not stop you WILL receive a warning. After 3 warnings you will receive a ban for however long the admins and moderators deemed fitting.

4. Sexual Harassment, Death Threats (both to others or suicide) and threats of Hacking another person will result in Permanent IP, account and email ban. it will not be tolerated here. EVER.*

5. Obey thread rules. We have some threads that have their own rules (2-3 Word game in particular) A break of the rules once will have you receiving a friendly reminder. Multiple breaks will result in warning. 3 Warnings and its an account ban for however long the admins and moderators deem fitting.

6. Spamming. Same thing; if you are found spamming your identical posts will be deleted and you will receive a warning. 3 Warnings and its an account ban for however long the admins and moderators deem fitting.

7. Attempts at bribery into becoming an admin/moderator will result in a warning and firm watch on you. Any further attempts will result in Account/Email/IP Ban

8. Posting pornlinks, scamming and the likes = instant Account/Email/IP ban.( Posting links to a site like Deviant Art that has a filter for explicit content is permittable.)

9. Creating flame threads (with the name of user) just because of previous problems with them gets the thread deleted and a warning repeating this offense gets you banned.
(Piece of advice; if you don't like someone on this forum; ignore them and add them to your foes)

10. Creating multiple accounts without a reasonable cause (lost password, hacked, anything in between) gets a warning, if repeated offense a temp ban.

11. Try to remain on topic for the threads, if you go off topic, keep it short and simple and then return to the topic at hand.

12. Sending private messages in excess and continues despite being asked to stop gets you the same deal as above.

13. Posting images (as profile pictures or into the threads) or posts that are deemed inappropriate, explicit or jail bait will return in an asking to take down the picture. Refusal will result in us taking it down for you and a serious warning.

14. Attacking one's beliefs (religion and morals for example) will not be tolerated. You will receive a warning, if you get 2 warnings you will receive a 3 day ban and an apology will be expected.

15. Any Pornographic content will be removed immediately and a permanent ban will be issued without warnings.

16. Any threats of attacks (hacking, spamming, DDOS attacks) to this site (or any other) whether on this site or off this site will be taken seriously. You will be insta-IP/Account/Email banned. This is in violation of a rule we agreed to when making this forum.


Generally don't be a dick and be nice to others. Most of us are from MO and that place had no clear rules and as we all know; it created a great deal of problems. I think with these simple rules and with the amount of admins and moderators we have there won't be even a third to half of the crap MO had.

Have a good time on the forums!

I also wish to point out these rules here are the rules we agreed to when making this forum. Most of these are rules I have already stated but its good to keep these in mind.
If these rules are broken this very forum is in danger. Please uphold these at all costs.


These are the terms of service we also had to agree to as well.

I just realized we had nothing against hacking someone personally so I modified rule 4 to include it.

I said that before, but I don't think the hacking rule is anywhere near necessary.

Hacking is a crime. It's forbidden by law, and we, as administrators, don't have the adequate power to truly punish it except by Ip Ban, which isn't that finite of a deal in the end.

This would be like adding a rule that says: "Even if you fall in love with someone on this site, you're not allowed to stalk, and kill them when they refuse your advances."

Silly, I know, but it illustrates my point well.

I just felt like it should be said. Some people don't frankly care about laws. Whether it be moral laws or laws by man. I just feel it might as well be written down so people understand. If they break the rules they can't have the argument "oh well there was no rules posted anywhere so I just assumed I could do whatever I want" because the rules would be written here as proof they exist.

We can't stop anyone from commiting murder. We're men with powers over one site. Not gods. I know we can't completely stop people from hacking for example. I Some people know way around this. But hackers even on MO didn't appear to be an issue as much. Trolls and online sexual harassers are more common than hackers and they are easier to deal with the powers we do have as admins.
And even then; we can handle people making threats. Not all threats are actual threats.
A former friend of mine recently was going around saying he was going to murder me. He clearly hasn't but that doesn't make it right.

I'd rather have rules down on what we CAN take care of down. These are all things in my view we can deal with it with a few clicks.
