Fun Allowed is on hiatus!
Fri Nov 13, 2015 3:00 pm by CasualCollision
It is uncertain how long this hiatus will last, and what changes will be made once it ends.

Admittedly, the main reason this hiatus is happening is because I'm running out of ideas as to how I can really involve myself.

The other reason is because, well, I hate seeing this place dead. The vast majority of the hiatus will probably be spent doing things entirely unrelated to Fun Allowed. However, I might look into finding a less restrictive host... eventually.

PostSubject: Fun Allowed Official Guidelines (Updated 2/26/14)   Sat Sep 28, 2013 7:28 pm

If you are reading this as a new member of Fun Allowed, then I give another hearty welcome to our forums and community. Though we try to be as helpful and lenient as possible, it still should be obvious to you that rules should be put in place to restrict and punish those who intend on bugging people, or ruining other people's fun (including our staff, possibly).

1. Do not post, or link to ANY sexually explicit material on this site. There will be NO warnings if this rule is broken. You WILL be suspended and possibly banned if this rule is violated.

You may ask yourself, "If this is supposed to be a forum where we can express ourselves freely, and where any ethical social practice is allowed, why can't there be porn?" Well, not only does our current host strictly prohibit posting such content, we (the staff) are still debating whether we should even make a board where that kind of stuff is allowed once we get a different host. The staff and I just aren't sure if it will be used for much other than a spammy porn-dump. As for our current host, if they catch sight of any pornographic content, they can terminate the website immediately without warning, which is a risk I'm not going to take. This may include any sort of human nudity and/or exposed genitalia, artistic or otherwise. Such will be treated just as severely from now on.

Posting child pornography or any other illegal material will result in an immediate and permanent ban. It will not be lifted. This will include lolicon, and shotacon.

2. Do not stretch the page horizontally, multi-post, make unjustified bumps, post in the wrong section, or otherwise use the forums in a messy and unorganized way.

We have a term coined for this kind of behavior. It is called Forum Misconduct. We would like to keep the forums and forum threads consistent and easy to read. There are plenty of exceptions to these rules regarding the Spam & Shenanigans board. However, if the OP of the thread (as in, the creator of the thread) says to not do something regarding the rules on Forum Misconduct, you listen to him or her. Any reported posts made by the OP that are considered Forum Misconduct are automatically valid unless he or she commits it in the thread as well.

Here we go into detail the rules surrounding Forum Misconduct, and what they mean.

Page stretching is pretty self-explanatory. Do not horizontally stretch the page; not even a little. People reading a thread shouldn't have to scroll to the other side of the page just to see the rest of the message. Stretching the page can be caused by using an excess amount of images, emoticons, or typing out one large word (or gibberish). None of these are allowed to begin with in any other place EXCEPT the Spam & Shenanigans board unless the OP says otherwise.

Multi-posting is another self-explanatory rule. Do not post multiple posts at a time unless you have a good reason for it. If you wish to add something else on top of what you just said, edit your post by clicking on the edit button on the top right corner of your post. There are exceptions to this rule in the Spam & Shenanigans board, and if it's a justified bump. Which by the way...

Unjustified bumps are when you post in an old, outdated thread that hasn't had a new post in weeks, months, or even years, for no good reason. Justified bumps are when you, the OP of the thread, bump to add something new to a still relevant topic. Multi-posting will often be forgiven for the intention of bumping for a good reason.

Posting in the wrong boards and sections will also not be tolerated. People do not go into the Gaming board to read about how bananas are the core cosmic elements that keep the universe in balance, nor do people go into the Real World & Debates board to read about class strategies in Team Fortress 2. We have a variety of sections on the board to keep discussions organized, and to lay out a diverse set of subjects for members to choose at their disposal.

Quoting the entire post DIRECTLY above yours is another thing that we do not allow, for there is no point of it. You may only quote a portion (or portions) of the post that you feel is relevant to your response to said post. If you are responding directly to the above post, you may use the carrot (^) sign to signify that you're directly responding to said post and no one else's, assuming it is still on-topic.

Posting incredibly short and irrelevant posts may also be deleted if they add little to nothing to the discussion. This includes posting a carrot sign, or saying “this” after a quote of someone else’s post to signify that you agree or disagree with someone, and nothing else.

Sock puppeting, or making an alternate account to converse with yourself in a thread is very disruptive, and not allowed outside of the Spam & Shenanigans board in your own threads, or threads that permit it.
On top of all this, we ask that you do not have an avatar larger than 150px by 200px, a banner size no bigger than 600px by 100px, and a text based signature no longer than 5 lines. As of right now, we provide no file size limitations. For now, we will simply trust that your avatar and signature will not slow down the loading of a page. More details concerning avatar and signature limitations will be noted in a future topic.

Any violations to these will be most likely assumed to be an honest mistake, if done sparingly. But if done time and time again, the violator will be issued verbal warnings, and after that, privileges will likely be taken until he or she is downright banned.

3. KEEP ALL SPAM IN THE SPAM & SHENANIGANS AND THE FUCK DIMENSION BOARD.

I cannot stress this enough. Contrary to what you might think, the forum's entire purpose isn't centered around spamming and cussing like a sailor. The purpose of this forum is to have a communal playground centered around the community and nothing else, which calls for a place for spamming and just letting all common sense and intellect go. However, this does not mean you can do that just anywhere. We expect you to have a level head in many other sections here, especially the Real World & Debates board. With that said, do not relay the same messages and images over and over, and stay on topic.

Any spam topic will be moved to the Spam & Shenanigans board, and any spam POST outside of a spam topic will be deleted, as well as any response to said post (or edited out).  For the rules on spamming in the Spam & Shenanigans board, click here.

Violations of this rule will result in only one verbal warning via private message. After that, you will be expected to know better and will be punished via privileges being taken, and temporary suspensions, each one longer than the last.

4. Harassment, unwarranted insults, hate speech, and otherwise being offensive for the sole purpose of being offensive will not be tolerated.

We ask that you be considerate of other people's feelings as possible, and be as discreet as possible when criticizing other users.  Essentially, you should try to treat others how you want to be treated, regardless of race, orientation, gender, etc. Any bigoted or discriminatory remarks to ethnic groups and the like can get you suspended for weeks, maybe months at a time, and perhaps a ban if continued soon after previous suspensions are lifted.

You may address another user or users with criticism, whether it’s about their artwork, behavior, or opinions. However, this does not mean you can issue criticism with ad-hominem attacks. Outside of a thread, you should take any dispute to a private message, or a private chat room. Making a new thread to further criticize another user, called a name-drop thread, is both unnecessary and impractical, as well as disruptive. Threads designed with the purpose of antagonizing another user are not permitted. This includes topics that satire other users in a mean-spirited way. Unlike name-drop threads, these are not immediately obvious that they are targeting another user. Any of these threads will be locked if discovered.

Anybody caught harassing another user or users, or addressing criticism with unneeded vitriol will result in very few verbal warnings. Afterwards, you will likely either have a privilege taken from you, or will receive a temporary suspension or ban if repeated enough times.
 
I give props to Batty for assisting me with the revision of these rules.

Thanks! I might make a rule against exploitative humor (rape jokes, kitchen jokes .etc), but I'm a little conflicted on my stance towards that stuff.

^ I really think you should before we decide when to make a big announcement post to go on Tumblr.

I'm merging the last few posts to the http://funallowed.free-forum-hosting.com/t17-promoting-fun-allowed thread to keeps things clean and to keep this thread from being derailed.
