Universal Rules

1 post in this topic

Access to the Forums is a privilege, not a right. While certain language and images may not offend you, be mindful of others who may have a different reaction. Moderators will evaluate all posts based on the Universal Rules and unique sub-forum guidelines, and punishment will be at their discretion. Disciplinary action for Forum behavior may extend to in-game accounts where required. Rules subject to change.

The Golden Rule
Always be respectful to players, community members, moderators, and Rioters. Harassment and insults will not be tolerated (“just playing” is NOT a catch-all excuse).

This is not the place for:
Mature Content

  • Moderators will look for and consider the following as violations of this rule:
    • Pornographic materials of any kind
    • Real life depictions of gore, death, horrifically violent acts, etc
    • Content that represents sexually explicit acts
    • Direct links to pictures or artist webpages that feature NSFW material
    • Any content we find inappropriate will be dealt with accordingly

Spamming / Trolling

  • Here is a breakdown of the various types of spam / trolling that we look for:
    • Posting content not related to the discussion
    • Posting a discussion or comment across multiple sub-boards

    • Making repetitive non-constructive or low effort content
    • Bumping of discussions with no additional context
    • Excessive emoji / icon spam

    • Other Community Members
    • Other Players
    • Moderators

Spoilers

  • Moderators will look for spoilers outside an officially marked spoiler thread in regards to popular new movies, shows, or gaming releases based on:
    • Actual spoilers without a
    • tag

      Naming and Shaming

      • If you see or hear about another person breaking the rules, in-game or on Forums, regardless of evidence, please send a ticket in to us at Report Player section

      The real bad stuff:
