Forum Rules

Post by FireFox »

WORK IN PROGRESS
RULES AND WORDINGS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE
PLEASE USE THE DISCORD SERVER'S "NEW NEXUS FORUM DISCUSSION CHANNEL" TO SUGGEST FEEDBACK




Do not insult, attack, or tear down other posters. Do your part to keep this community healthy and civil.

Do not discriminate against other posters based on race, gender, sexuality, age, or similar categories. We do not tolerate racism, sexism, homophobia or transphobia.

Do not bully or harass other posters through deliberate, repeated words or deeds that poster does not welcome, to be judged by a “reasonable person” standard. Would a reasonable person consider those words or deeds, continued after the poster asked for them to cease, to be bullying or harassment?

Do not utilize the forum to discuss or conduct illegal activities in real life. Do not post links to websites that conduct illegal activities, for example piracy. In character roleplay is understood to be fictional. The moderation team has the responsibility to ensure the community doesn’t violate the forum host’s ToS by perpetrating actual crimes.

Do not spam or disruptively advertise. If you are advertising something you do yourself, like art commissions, you are welcome to do it in your forum signature, OoC discussion threads, or the discord server's "your art and commissions" channel. Posting links to external websites in IC threads would be considered disruptive and a moderator may remove that post.

Do not disseminate someone else’s personal information or otherwise expose personal information without their knowledge or consent.

Do not start, continue, or escalate arguments about real world religion and politics. It's permitted to have characters mention real-life religious figures or practices or espouse faith in a real-life religion. However, do not have characters proselytise, preach or try to convert other characters to such religion. This includes claiming their truth or superiority over fictional religions. When in doubt, err on the side of not going in-depth on real faiths and practices, but you can have religion be a part of your characters and plots. It's permitted to have characters mention real-life political figures, events and ideologies, but take care not to turn it into a political argument.



Adult Themes Rules & Guidelines


1. Flirting and talking about sex is okay. So is describing a character as attractive or describing your character's reaction to an attractive person. Please do not sexualize minors. Teenagers flirt, but please your discretion when it comes to adult topics involving minors. Don't be a creep.
2. More explicit sex talk, flirting and seduction (outside of the appropriate subforum) should come with a warning. The same applies to more detailed depiction of physicality or reactions to it.
3. If such content appears in one post in a scene, it's best to put it in a spoiler and attach appropriate warnings. For entire scenes or plots with such themes, place them in the Mature Scenes subforum.
4. Explicit depictions of sexual acts shouldn't be posted on the forum.
5. Descriptions of fights and injuries are okay. Anything you'd see in a PG-13 fantasy or action novel can be described on the forum.
6. Detailed and realistic descriptions of violence and injuries (outside of the Mature Scenes subforum) should come with a warning. The same applies to particularly gruesome wounds or treatment.
7. If such content appears in one post in a scene, it's best to put it in a spoiler and attach appropriate warnings. For entire scenes or plots with such themes, place them in the Mature Scenes subforum.
8. Sexual violence or torture shouldn't be posted on the forum.



Avatar & Signature Rules


The total width of images in your signature may not exceed 470 pixels. This may be comprised of one or more images.

The total height of images in your signature may not exceed 120 pixels. This may be comprised of one or more images.

Any images in a spoiler may not exceed 300 pixels high by 470 pixels wide.

Total height of your signature may not exceed 12 lines or equivalent. A smaller font may allow additional lines and a larger font will count against multiple lines. A 120 pixel high image is equivalent to 8 lines, a spoiler with no blank lines around it is equivalent to 2 lines. Please be aware of text wrapping as long lines will count as multiple lines at our discretion.

The maximum size for any avatar is 50kb.

The maximum total size for your avatar and every image in your signature, including those in spoilers cannot exceed 300kb.

Avatars and signature images must be static (ie. not animated). Animated avatars or signature images will be subject to immediate removal.

Animated images are still allowed as post content (preferably in a spoiler) but not in your signature or as an avatar as they detract from the rest of the forums when they are attached to every post.



Moderation Actions


1. Mod guidance to encourage or discourage certain behavior. For godmodding or content edging towards being too graphic.
2. Mod warnings, meant to firmly tell a poster what to do. For repeated godmodding or content that is definitely too graphic. This can include a warning not to post in a thread for a certain period.
3. Deleting posts if they're spam, offensive or otherwise aren't something people want to keep seeing.
4. Temporary or permanent bans from the whole forum. For behavior such as insulting other players or disrupting RP in multiple threads. Repeatedly ignoring official mod warnings can result in a temporary forum ban. Using slurs against other players or encouraging them to harm themselves will not be tolerated under any circumstances.
