nD Forum Rules

Post by Agito »

If you are looking for the in-game rules, look here: General Server Rules
  1. No harassing, insulting or flaming.
  2. No racism.
  3. No offensive or pornographic sprays.
  4. No spamming in chat or mic.
  5. No bug abusing.
  6. No advertising.
  7. Do not pretend to be an admin/moderator.
  8. No cheating/hacks (such as aimbot).
  9. No scripting.
  10. No exploiting of game mechanics to gain an unfair advantage.
In most cases players will receive a certain amount of warning(s) depending on the magnitude of the rule break, before a punishment is given. Please listen to the members of staff (admins/moderators) when they try to explain something to you.

1.2 Double posting is not allowed. Use the edit function to add new information/content.
Exception:
The werewolf game section (rules are the same for its subsections as the rest of the forums, so only double post in the game area.)

4.1 It's not allowed to use more than 1 signature picture. Exception: if all signatures together aren't larger than one normal signature. As for GIF files, they are allowed to me maximum 2 MB within the size range.
(Same goes for "walls of text" + hiding stuff that goes out of the range in spoilers or other codes)


4.2 The size of a signature shouldn't go far over 600x200. We are tolerant up to a certain point but don't overdo it. We will feel free to ask you at any time to change the size of your signature.

A quick update on:
  • Content of the rules
  • Signature size rules: The size of a signature shouldn't go far over 600x200. We are tolerant up to a certain point but don't overdo it. We will feel free to ask you at any time to change the size of your signature.
Hope the rules are easier to understand and that you like the new signature rule!

Added an exception for the English language rule:
Exception 2:
You may also type in your own language when it's in threads directed towards one person such as introductions, leaving threads, happy birthday threads and such. Also if the guy has a request thread open for avatars or such you may also do it; keep a nice language as in any other language and don't misuse the liberty to do so.
I think a lot of you will enjoy this one :)

Actually I see a loophole there "and such" that you write.
What defines that? It is only restricted based on ones own opinion when you type "and such" would be nice if you place up a whole list of forums you're allowed to use your own language.

This basically mean I can use my own language everywhere depending on what I type to that person and what the person wants.

Like to you right now, I am only typing to you, not anyone else. So basically I could just type danish.
I qouted "Unownist" but it's because he made me realize the loophole ^^

This isn't a thread directed towards one person, therefore he broke the rule. The rule is understandable as it is.

Can this rule be controlled a bit more? I see siggy's getting bigger and bigger. Sometimes there are 3 big pictures in the signature..
