    General Discussion Rules

    1. No resurrecting old threads if it's a month old UNLESS you have something actually useful to say instead of some one-liner or something.

    2. Similarly, do NOT necromance a thread that is asking a question or input. The original poster may have long forgotten about their thread and new input is most likely not needed.

    3. No H, nude pics or links including links to illegal material like warez and scanlation sites and disturbing images like decapitated bodies and whatnot. This site (not just the forum) is open to all ages from children to adults. Please be considerate of everyone.... and if you're not, then be prepared to get banned.

    If you're new here, make sure you go through the Announcement section first. There, you can find out how to set up avatars, display images, and most important: general rules around the forum are there. I highly suggest you look through them.

    ******************************

    More Rules from Jubeh:
    This is general discussion, where you can talk about anything. Not just limited to art.

    -Dont double post
    -Dont flood the page with too many threads.
    -If you're discussing mature content, label it as such. Like, (Mature 18+)
    -Do not make duplicate threads. But if you can't find a thread within the first three pages that is similar to what you want to talk about - go ahead and make a new thread.
    -Use the report button if you want to report anything suspect. I can only read so many threads in a day
    -No trolling/flaming or any typical forum hating.
    -Do not advertise on this site. Period. If you are not sure if what you are doing is considered advertisement, email or PM Rio first.
    -Do not backseat mod. That is to say, do not try and be a mod, or order people around like one. Yeah, we know the rules.
    -Do not make a sockpuppet if you are banned. This is the easiest way to get a perma ban if you were only temp banned before.

    The Warning Structure-
    3 warnings = 1 week ban
    6 warnings = 1 month ban
    9 warnings = perma ban

    This can be altered depending on the severity of the warnings. For instance, actions like advertising or making an account for the sake of trolling are typically perma bans from the get go. Little mistakes like straying off topic just get you one warnings. Just be excellent to each other and you don't have to worry about any of this stuff.

    Rule Addition

    Just wanted to clarify the whole necromancing a thread deal by adding this rule:

    Do NOT necromance a thread that is asking a question or input. The original poster may have long forgotten about their thread and new input is most likely not needed.

    Clarification - General Discussion Rules are Global Rules

    Just wanted to clarify:

    General Discussion Rules are global rules. They apply to all the areas of the forum. The only exception is if there is a rule in a particular section's rule which is conflicting. If there is a conflict, the rule in that particular section overrides the General Discussion Rules.

    For example, the GD Rules states that necromancing old threads is not allowed. Critique Corner though, allows the owner of the thread to revive their old thread at any time to post new artwork. In this case, Critique Corner Rules will override General Discussion Rules.

    Addendum Regarding Making Duplicate Threads

    -Do not make duplicate threads. But if you can't find a thread within the first three pages that is similar to what you want to talk about - go ahead and make a new thread.
