OK, it's time we set down some guidelines in writing.

First - profanity.  The following swear words are not allowed:
- The c-word
- Both f-words
- The s-word
- The n-word

If you have any doubts about what any of those words might be, PM me.

Second - Excessive Hyperbole.  Enough referring to the mods as Nazis.  The Nazis were responsible for the deaths of countless people.  None of the mods have killed anybody.  Constructive criticism of the mods is fine, but if you're obnoxious about it, it's not gonna fly any more.

Third - Personal Attacks.  Don't attack other forum posters.

If you have any doubts about what you're about to post, don't post it, and PM me or Mikado first.  The "It's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission" line won't fly here.

Everyone can consider this their official notification, and nobody should be claiming lack of knowledge for the rules of the board.

I guess the term fascists is off limits too?

Fascism doesn't necessarily equate to murderers...so that's ok... I just lose respect for people who misuse the word.

You mean like when Al called you one, and posted it in his signature?  Smiley

Don't try to chalk this up to Europe. We have way better humour than that. In fact some of the funniest people I've met have been Polish.

New Mikadorule: this board can have one and only one thread for the discussion of the Gen 3.5 incarnation of My Little Pony.  If someone wants to start a proper discussion thread/bump the old one, that's fine.  No polls, no  threads about who they'd vote for, and posting about your desire to bone Fluttershy will get you a big infraction.

Here is a new rule that will apply to everyone from this point forward: If you start a new account for any reason other than you got accidentally locked out of your regular account (such as the e-mail address you use to reset your password is no longer valid), you will not be allowed to post on the Off Topic and Forum Community boards.

If you decide to quit the forum and come back, you must talk to Dave to get your old account restored before posting on these boards.  Failure to abide by this rule will result in 10 point infractions for each post you post on these boards (I removed all of jmfcst's posts without infraction since this rule is new).

I'm sorry, but it's a bad precedent for us to start allowing multiple accounts based on bi-polar attitudes of hate and addiction to this forum, and we are going to nip this in the bud now.

Dave's rules and directions obviously trumps all.  That goes with ANY rule.  I'm not sure why you're singling this one out to question.

That was asked a while ago actually, and I was supposed to delete that post if you answered it in the other thread first.
