    Default Must Read Rules Before Posting!

    To All whom pass through the Onrpg Forum:

    Rule No. 1 – No "Flaming"
    • You will not post any messages that harass, insult, belittle, threaten or flame another member or guest. Personal attacks that are obviously between friends joking around are allowed up to a point.
    • This includes shouting in the forum with the use of totally UPPERCASE sentences in your topic, title, or post.
    Rule No. 2 – No "Trolling"
    • You will not post any topic that disrupts the peace and harmony of this forum. Don't create meaningless threads with the sole purpose of starting a dispute. This includes messages in profiles and signatures.

    • You will not double post or cross-post the same message in multiple forums. You will not mass-PM or mass-email multiple members of this site the same message. You will not post for the sake of increasing your post count.

    What happens if I break a rule?
    The administrators and moderators of the Onrpg Forum have the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread or post, or suspend or ban any member for any breach of the rules or for any other reason with or without warning or notice.

    What is a warning, and how many can I get?
    Warnings will now be handled differently. You will recieve a max of 3 warnings. After your 3rd warning you will be banned for a week. On return if you earn your 4th warning you will be permanetly banned.

    What if I see a message posted that breaks a rule?
    Please report these posts or threads to the administrator or moderator of the forum by submitting a Private Message, and the post or thread will be reviewed and action taken as soon as possible. Posting in a thread, or posting about, the breakage of the rule may result in warning. So just report it and leave it.

    What is my responsibility as a member?
    Please keep these 11 rules in mind when you post. The administrators and moderators of the Onrpg Forum have the right to change these rules at any time without notice. It is the responsibility of every member to remain updated with the current rules.

    Why have rules in the first place?
    The rules are there for the protection of the community as a whole and to prevent abuse, conflict and disharmony within the forums.

    Your cooperation is most appreciated!
