Maplemation Terms of Service and Rules
1. Content that violates United States law is forbidden.
This includes (but is not limited to) pirated software and other content.
2. NSFW artwork is only allowed if spoiled with a disclaimer.
This does not mean you can post pornography, please keep it tasteful.
3. Please keep outside drama/jokes outside the forum.
Drama or inside jokes that have nothing to do with the site should be kept to their appropriate place.
4. Be kind and polite towards others.
Don't call others names, bash on what they do or how they are, or put them down in any way.
A note on criticism: Criticism (or “CnC”) on your work from other users should not be taken to heart, as it is a comment on your work, and not you as an individual. That being said, you should always try to be polite regardless of how harsh your critique may be. Comments that are attacking the user specifically or are outright flaming will be removed.
5. Do not respond to threads that are older than 30 days.
This does not apply to sticky threads, MBR profiles, tutorials, or any other forums where the post-rate is relatively slow.
6. Backseat moderating does not help.
Please report posts that you see violate the rules above, do not respond to them. Do not make false or joke reports.
7. Do not make secondary accounts.
Alternate accounts will be deleted.
8. Do not publicly complain about staff actions.
This includes (but is not limited to) complaining on why a member was banned or why a thread was closed. If you have questions regarding a staff's actions, contact an administrator.
Please remember the quality of the forum is entirely dependent on the quality of posts. When posting, make sure your post has actual content in it, and is helpful to the community. One word posts, double posts, and other spam will be deleted when necessary.
