4. Spam is only allowed in the Fountain Square.
5. Short comments with less than 25 words are counted as in the War of Words.
6. No double-posting.
7. No swearing. It will be consored like this: "****"
8. Explicit topics about Religion, Drugs and Sex are PROHIBITED. *
*By SEX that we mean explicit cyber-sex in topics, explicit descriptions, images,etc. By RELIGION we mean no topics advertising your religion or promoting it, or trying to gather other people to join it. And by DRUGS we mean no explicit content about drugs themselves, or posts that would encourage use of such. Those topics may still be discussed in a intelligent manner.
9. No 18+/X-rated/"Mature audiences only" material, and no links to sites with that kind of content (that means hentai, shoutacon and lolicon).
10. Mods keep the right to close any topic if the discussion is getting old and repetative. A topic can be reopened by a PM request to the mod in charge.
11. No advertising / linking to other websites. We also dislike other forum members trying to steal our members and lure them into their own forums. That includes harassing them via pms, e-mail, on forums or visitor messages.
12. Useless topics go into the Fountain Square where we allow spam.
13. Do not bother uploaders without a very good reason.

26. Signatures can only have a maximum of 3 visible horizontal images.
Also keep in mind not to have long vertical images in your signature. After those 3 images you may hide the rest of your images in at most two spoilers. Compress your images. PNG is not always the best way to save your sig images, try to use PNG only if you need transparency in your images. Larger images (such as family trees) need to be linked! Do not show the image but link to it.

28. Public discussions of staff decisions are not permitted on the site.

(We are still working on these rules. They might change a bit or we might add more. We used to have an outdated set, and now we are trying to put up a new set which is simpler and easier to follow.)
