IF a poster says something you find offensive, ALERT A MODERATOR.

It is our job to arbitrate disputes and keep this forum clean & fun for everyone involved. Well, fun, anyway. Cleanliness is optional. If you do not let a Mod know that someone is troubling you, chances are we'll let things slide--people say a lot of things in jest that might inadvertently come across as offensive. We can sort these things out and keep feelings from being hurt. Again, if someone says something that puts you off, let a Moderator know!

DO NOT:

-- DO NOT bait or flame. I reserve the right to define those terms myself on a case-by-case basis, but generals rules of thumb are as follows: BAITING is making a leading comment that will cause another poster to respond angrily or with a FLAME.  FLAMING is personally insulting another poster and you WILL get a stern warning for doing it. Repeatedly doing it will get you banned.

-- DO NOT post anything racist or bigoted. This includes even casual use of racial slurs. This will not be tolerated. If I see a post that includes a racial epithet used in a serious manner, I'll ban you immediately. There will be no warning.

-- DO NOT seriously discuss any criminal acts.* You know--things like bomb-making, or assault, or murder. Joke about them all you want, though.

-- DO NOT show any openly pornographic images. If you must, you may LINK TO such a picture, PROVIDING you EXPLICITLY STATE where it is you're sending people.


AVATAR INFORMATION:


Avatar uploading is disabled because there's barely enough bandwidth allotted for avatars to last a month. If you want an avatar, you'll have to host it yourself, or just steal some bandwidth from an unsuspecting site that's already hosting your image of choice.

Photobucket is a free image hosting service, or, if you prefer, you can use Imageshack.

If you can't or don't want to use those services, I'll host the avatar for you myself on the Morningstar Saga's webspace. Just PM me and ask.


* For the purposes of my principles, "criminal acts" does not necessarily include the consumption of practically harmless but nonetheless bewilderingly illegal substances. MSSF does not necessarily condone the use of said substances. Necessarily. (Support your local NORML chapter!)

Pardon my lack of knowledge....but what exactly is a troll? I know what a troll doll is.....lol...but I don't know this...(lack of forum experience.....I suppose) and if we hurt one....do I get to help too... (I know that it is someone that comes on the forum...but why do they call them that...)

A Troll, by loose definition, is a sad, pathetic little individual whose kicks come from registering on a forum, and then posting in such a way as to be entirely unconstructive and unentertaining, all the while managing to insult as many people as he/she can without actually flaming them. They are the pondscum of internet forums. The lowest caste. They sort of try to exploit a loophole in forum rules. That loophole will not exist here, as long as I hold the Mod-hammer.

And I remember Troll Dolls, too! Man, those were all the rage back in the day!

Yeah, I changed it.

Pardon my inexperience, but what's the difference from a male troll doll and a female?

Rules are updated slightly. Sorry about the titles. Swearing is the only real rule modification; it is still perfectly acceptable to swear fuck but should be kept shit to a manageable level. Avatar information is up there for any newbies who come along who missed the discussion about them.

Or, just Google imagesearch for a picture you like and use it as your avatar. Mine's from some football team in Carolina.

Your rules work fine for me, dude.  Been looking over yer' site, and I'm impressed!  This forum doesn't seem nearly as hostile as some of the others out there.  Good work,Z!

Mmmmkay... I've given back the ECU Pirates their bandwidth... now how do I convert and image to .jpg format? Fileshack puts it in .png format, and Photbucket's sorta closed down for a while.

Okay, Photbucket's back, but they put in in .bmp. Morningstar requirements are .jpg or .gif.

You'll host it? You have a website?

I don't want to be a burden or anything.
