( I deleted the last one, because old feuds were being rehashed. That is/was unacceptable, so please confine this thread to questions about the rules of this board, or PM me if you are more comfortable with that. Any old feud you have with another poster should be resolved via PM, e-mail, or pretty much any other method except my message board.)

Now then, the rules:

Do not talk about "inappropriate" subjects. "X"Rated subjects are certainly not allowed, and you're moving into uncertain territory at an "R" rating. (Assume, for the purposes of this example, that this board is an "independent film" (see below)).

Do not endlessly rant on about a mod decision.

Spamming will not be tolerated, especially if it is obvious that you're just trying to up your post count.

If you feel the need to cuss and swear that's fine, but certain words will be filtered out, and "dodging" the filter is not permitted.


I will lock/delete/whatever discussions about real world "flammable" topics (especially politics, religion, or old feuds) at the first sign of tempers flaring.

Do not continually bash or personally attack (or counter attack) anyone, even someone who is not a regular here.

I am not always going to be "on duty", though I will spend as much time here as I am able. As such, I will not always "moderate" in real time. Please make use of the Report to Mod function if you feel you need to. Even if I do not respond immediately, I will respond.


If you are asked by the Original Poster to stay out of a thread in the Title of the thread, then stay out of the thread. If you do not want a particular poster in your thread, include "(Name), please stay out." in the thread title.

Knowingly leaving your tags broken will incur my wrath.

Wishing death on someone is not allowed. This includes telling someone they should "Die in a fire" and similar sentiments.


If you have any questions, PM me and we'll talk.

Game On,
fbmf

A word about "R" and "X" rated.

Frank pointed out that these are subjective terms and depend on how much payola your production studio is able to bribe the MPAA execs with. As he so eloquently phrased it:

Frank wrote:

When Sony shows a nipple it gets them a PG or R as desired, while an independent film maker can be pretty assured that any movie made with two guys kissing in it is going to get an R or even NC-17.


A fine point.

For our purposes, consider these boards to be an "independent film", as noted above.

Game On,

Okay, gotcha.

Female nipples = good.

Men kissing = bad.

How about women kissing?

May I post links to ecchi (read: perverse and adult) websites as long as I make gigantic, and I mean GIGANTIC amounts of Don't Read: Not Work Safe and Satan Will Enter Your Soul Through Your Groin If You Read This and soforth tags?

I sometimes like to reference Seanbaby and Ecchi-Attack, but those two places use the F word on their website and posts stuff that is the regular fodder of Something Awful.

Lago,

I'm going to have to say "no" for now. If it's a big deal, e-mail me a sample link and I'll check it out.

From the way you describe it, though, I suspect bbboy would whip my ass if I allowed it.

Is it okay to link to a thread for the purposes of making fun of it? For example a thread where people are claiming dodge is a good feat.

As long as you are making fun of the "idea", and not the posters themselves, knock yourself out. No referencing specific posters in your tirade though, please.

I believe Vaalingrade Ashland still has the thread from the original WotC-game over on Nifty. Check in Gamer Yarns.

Fbmf, that thread has been locked, but Vaal has something like it (in theory) on his boards. They may be found here.

I never actually started a thread for the game because I forgot the rules, and couldn't find them again on Nifty which is why I didn't start it anew Sad . Feel free to start it, though, I found it most amusing.

OK, seriously dudes, what the hell are you guys talking about?

This is hypothetically a rules thread, and everyone here is talking in cryptic sygils and self-referential hand signals. It's got to stop.

They're talking about a thread that used to be on Nifty in which people linked the dumbest WotC threads.

Yeah, and whenever someone who posted on Nifty said anything on WotC, there was one dude that would link to that thread to try to discredit them.

How that was supposed to work, I have no clue. I don't see said person on this board, Nifty, nor WotC, nad haven't for a long time.

Alright, I got some new rules requests. Note that I'm posting this on Nifty too, because these things have been a pain in my dick for a while.

Note that I would like to say that FBMF here is enforcing said rules in a fair and just manner, by the way. I'm not railing against the moderator, I'm railing against the rules themselves.

I will make two suggestions:

1. The off-topic rule is retarded. It was retarded on wotC, it was retarded on Nifty, and it continues the legacy of retardation here. If the thread goes off topic, it's off topic. If no one can manage the Diplomacy check to get it back on topic, then they should have invested in more diplomacy, or not have taken Charisma as their dump stat. If the thread was about the Duskblade, and five paces later people are talking about burgers, the thread is now about burgers.

2. I would very much like there to be one forum dedicated solely for ranting. As in, one forum that's free game, no coC, no rules, no post editing. If someone things [whoview] is a cocksucking asshole, they start a thread entitled "[whoview] is a cocksucking asshole" and go from there.

Sounds rediculous? Well, hear me out. I have been on several boards that had a rant forum just for people to verbally abuse each other. And the rest of the board was remarkably abuse free. No one violates the CoC to insult someone, because they can go over to the rant forum and do it.

Now, if you think my ideas suck, whatever. I ain't gonna throw a fit about it if I don't get my way. Just something to think about.

I don't mind starting a new thread when it goes off topic, but it can be confusing when I now own a thread I didn't think I owned... There's no context. Could a 'this was from page n of thread x' be the first post?

Also, boys kissing and gay characters are on TV-14. Does that mean it's okay here now? It is a few years later...

Filter? What filter?

Is the first post kept for the lulz or sweet memories, or some other reason? Cuz some of those situations have changed.

Like Rupert Murdoch and News Corps. recent takeover of this website's parent company, those swinehound [FBI edit] [FBI edit] neocon [FBI edit] bastards OH SHIIIII I WASN'T ALLOWED TO SAY TH[FBI edit]

Certain words are filtered on the boards - fuck used to be one of them. I'm not exactly sure what the other words are because I generally don't use words that require filtering, and when they do come up, I have no way of distinguishing one word from another because they're replaced by a big [EDITED].

More often than not, I've found language filters more a pain in the ass - especially when they go off due to a typo - than helpful. It's a hindrance to clear communication.
