    Downy here with some guidelines and rules for the forum.

    Most of these rules should be common knowledge.


    General rules;

    - No spamming.
    - Don't insult other members.
    - Don't necropost threads. An exception to this rule are the forum games.
    - Don't abuse the report system.
    - Don't shitpost, keep it in the great below.
    - No advertising.
    - Don't post any pornography, gore or anything alike.
    - No backseat moderating.
    - Do not bump admin applications or ban appeals, we have not forgotten about them.

    What we think is shitposting;

    - Sentences in intentionally broken English (i fuek m8 will hook you in the the gabba).
    - Memes.
    - Very short posts (k, B) etc)

    Admin application specific guidelines;

    We no longer allow non-informative replies on admin applications such as but not limited to 'Yes +1' No -1' or any sort of shitposting.
    Please post some constructive criticism if you do not like the application instead of insulting the applicant.
    If you do like the application please state why you think the applicant should be hired. If what you wanted to say has already been posted please don't post the same, use the vote function instead.
    We will be actively monitoring all the applications, handing out infractions where needed.

    Please post your suggestions, if any, below.

    >inb4 puns are included
    >inb4 >inb4 is not allowed
    Also it might be a nice thing to disable pictures on admin apps.
    And a section for shoutbox rules, I know that people who are not signed in don't see it but still.

    Could you please define "Backseat moderating"? Some people might get confused with what that means.

    Finally, good work.

    You should add double-posting

    Offtopic posts in general should be warned.

    Downy, you're saying No bumps are allowed, but what if, for example, someone made a suggestion and it gets forgotten. Are you still allowed to bump? Or some ban appeal that's never been decided about?

    only one post per person per thread.

    each reply you give = bumps it.
    so yeah.

    I'll edit the rule to say necroposting instead.
    Also, ban appeals are never forgotten about.
