ALEPHTAR GAMES FORUM RULES.
1. OBEY THE RULES
RPG forums are often plagued by unpleasant flame wars. There is no reason why this one should be an exception, so the moderators shall oversee that what follows is respected. The first violation of a rule (except violations that constitute a crime and SPAM) will yield a formal warning. The second (and subsequent) violation will imply a ban, lasting as much as the moderators decide.
2. RESPECT OTHER USERS
You are kindly asked to avoid being rude or offensive towards other users. Ad hominem attacks, for any reasons, are absolutely forbidden. It is fine to disagree with another user, but never to mock his or her opinion or - worse - his or her person.
2a. Opinions about products
You are allowed to post bad opinions about Alephtar Games producst (this forum is here for this purpose, too). Users are kindly requested to abstain from pointlessly offensive comments about competing products. If you are here, chances are high that you got bored of games based on 20-sided dice. But this is not a good reason to use this forum to bash them. In order to speak your mind, please use a forum where the game publisher is likely to reply.
3. SENSITIVE SUBJECTS
It is forbidden to discuss politics. Many of our games are about religion, so it is allowed to discuss religion, but always from a "historical" point of view. Events, even embarrassing or bloody ones, occurred in the past because of religion may be quoted, but references to contemporary events must be avoided.
Do not exceed with 4-letter words. Blasphemy is forbidden in any case, as it is no "historical" attitude towards religion.
5. INSISTING AND WHINING
You are allowed to insist on your opinion, as long as you do not offend your opponent. But do not be surprised if someone says you are boring, then.
Posting with a commercial or self-promotion purpose only is prohibited. Ads about related or competing products must be agreed upon with the moderators. Posts that violate this rule will be removed. Users created for this purpose only will be deleted without warning.
6. ILLICIT CONTENTS
Needless to say, porn is prohibited here in any form, including links to the (few) rpgs that contain obscene images. It is also absolutely forbidden to speak about illegaly distributed contents (piracy), in any form, including admitting to own illegally acquired contents. Distributing materials that you do not have the right to distribute will result in immediate deletion of your account, and communication of your data to the authorities if the act constitutes a penal offense.
7. RESPECT YOUR MODERATORS
If you disagree with a moderator's judgement, please contact him or her with a private message. You are not allowed to contradict or comment a moderator's intervention (which is marked by red text) in a public post.
