The Forums were created so that anyone could chat about anything at any time without fear of reproach or being "snapped at" like many forums out there. Elly was once a member of a site & forum called "TR Headquarters" a very long time ago, and she noticed that key members were mocking her, then mimicking what she was saying to the great applause of the "cliques" that had formed within the board. WTF, basically.
This seemed wrong and sad - especially as she began to search around she found most places cold and unfriendly towards "new" members, calling them "n00bs" and "newbies". She also found most roleplaying forums far, far too strict so she encouraged an easier, 'freestyle' method on the Brig. You can be formal or relaxed, rant or need a shoulder to cry on. It's all good at the Brig.
Extra Helpful Forum Links:
Do not link to images/sites with inappropriate content, such as nudity, warez/piracy/illegal download and pornography sites. This does not include abandonware sites.
In addition to inappropriate links, certain topics are not appropriate for these forums. Topics about or discussing warez/piracy/illegal downloads and pornography are not permitted. This does not include topics about abandonware.
Swearing is permitted as long as we all act like adults and don't use the F word a bazillion times.
We do not allow threads to be created for things such as professional advertising for business or sales (ie., spamming a website that sells shoes or such). The "Pointless, Yet Amusing" forums are used for board hops and advertising your own Yuku board...but why post here to advert your board? No one ever really looks at that shit.
Intentional disruptive behavior including all of the above behaviors or looking for an argument is called trolling. This is not allowed here. Talking about any illegal activity, including software piracy, drugs, vandalism, assault, etc is not allowed.
Insulting people, putting people down, calling names, etc is not acceptable on these forums. If you don't like a thread and/or feel that it is redundant, don't post in it. Also if you don't like the topic, that is no excuse to demean the person who started the thread, nor is it an excuse to make derogatory remarks. If you don't like it, don't post.
Posting About Moderator or Administrator Action or Inaction
Posting about administrative action that has been, should have been, or will be taken, is unhelpful and considered spam/mini-modding.
Politics/Religion and Current Events
Topics or posts that deal with political matters should be at all times respectful. We can disagree without being disagreeable. You may attack a person's argument mercilessly but once you attack the person making the argument this will be considered a personal attack and subject to Moderator intervention. You may post in "Butch's Customer Service Center" about anything you like, but keep it in there please, and do not let it taint the rest of the forums with "discussions" which are nothing but arguments.
No form of discrimination or hate speech will be tolerated at any time - this includes be is not limited to issues of gender, race, ethnicity, citizenship, sexual orientation, economic status, religion, and political affiliation. This includes "furries", just in case you were wondering.
