* You may not post for the sake of increasing your post count.

(i.e. no self-promotions). This also includes pyramid schemes, gMail, etc.

5 - Language Restrictions

* Please make all posts in English. This makes moderation easier and also keeps the forums more sociable. Keep any other language to PMs. Repeat offenders will get a warning and may be banned.

6 – User Name Restrictions

* Do not register names with excessive special characters, especially '\' and '/', or any names which may be misleading. Examples of this include registering a name containing 'admin' or 'administrator'. You must not register names which may be confused with a member of the OnRPG Forum’s staff. This will result in the account being renamed or deleted without notice.

2. A link and promotional text for a site that is not commercial (ie. affiliate links) and does not contain product(s) and/or service(s) is allowed, provided the site is not sexual or does not violate OnRPG community standards. (Examples include sites about drugs and/or sex.).
3. Duplicate links to the same URL in a signature are not allowed.
* You will not display avatars that harass, insult, belittle, threaten or flame another member or guest.
* Other restrictions consist of:

8 – Respect the staff

* If you have an issue with the staff, do not hesitate to bring it up in the Suggestions & Feedback forum. However, if you are disrespectful to the staff and insult them, you will receive a warning or infraction the same way you would if you were to insult a normal member.

9 – Trading

* You may not post trades of game accounts, in-game items for real money, and/or trading an item in one game for an item in another game. You may post normal trades that stay with-in a game with stuff already in that game.

10 - Reputation System

* Reputation must be fairly given. Any misuse of the reputation system to unfairly punish or reward a member will result in a removal of the reputation points and an infraction.
Be aware that if you abuse the system the staff at OnRPG has a right to remove your right to give reputation to other users of this forum.

Ex: The tyrant Admin proclaimed the long list of rules to the entire kingdom of the site. At the climax of her angry tirade she said in a booming voice: "Punishable by death of tho thread! Banishment! Or The Dungeon!"

Non-Ex: The admin read a list of rules. She said "Punishable by death of tho thread! Banishment! Or The Dungeon!" ( That is NOT acceptable!)
