Overall Rules
Keep these forum-wide rules in mind everywhere.  New members are expected to read and understand all of them before posting or chatting. Current members are expected to keep updated on them within a week of changes, notified by an update post to this thread.

1. Thou shalt not spam. Spam is, as defined here - 'Posts with little to no merit and/or little to no content.'  If anything like that crosses your mind, we have an Off-Topic forum for it.

2. Mild swearing is allowed for the sake of roleplaying in general. If you're not sure, don't start, and may Chaos help you if you're used to blue streaks.  Anything seeming to violate this rule will be handled on a call-to-call basis.

3. Do not talk about, post, or link others to sexual or pornographic content.  Romance is not handled under this rule.  The call-to-call basis functions here as well.

4. No flaming, no trolling, no hurting other members.
4a. Steer away from topics likely to erupt into flames, including moral, ethical, and political debates and/or other arguments.
4b. No biting, chewing on, or eating other members.

5. Don't double-post.  Bumping is allowed after two days, but only once per bump.

6. Double-checking to be sure you're posting in the right place with the right message doesn't take much, but it can make a huge difference.

7. We require written English.  We also encourage capital letters and good grammar.  Textspeak and constant abbreviations are not languages.

8. Do not publicize anything illegal (including but not limited to data theft of any type): they are not endorsed here and will be dealt with sharply.

9. Multiple accounts under control of the same person are not allowed; one is enough and any created after a banishment will be banned.

10. We're a Sonic forum.  While the staff won't hunt you down for talking about other series, keep it out of the RPs and in the Chatbox or the Off-Topic forum.
10a. In case this wasn't clear: No crossover RPs outside the Non-Canon RP section.

11. No unsolicited criticism.  This includes but is not limited to other members' characters, RP styles, or personal convictions.
11a. Backseat modding (telling off another user for disobeying rules) is not allowed.  Bring the infraction to staff's attention.
12. Leave romance to characters.  We don't want public displays of snogging or worse, and shipping is for characters, not their authors.

13. Have fun!

14. These rules are subject to change should additions or clarifications be necessary.  An update post will be added to this thread and current members will get one pass for not knowing within a week of the rule's publication.

C-Box Rules

1. Keep the overall rules and keep the RP rules while RPing.

2. Don't spam. This includes:
- typing
- like
- this
- Posting only emoticons.
- Repeating someone's name over and over.
- Posting lots of dots. The C-Box auto-disconnects after you don't say anything for 15 minutes. You don't need too much more than that if you're trying to stay in.

3. We're not your personal counseling service. We understand that we all deal with troubles and issues and have our bad days - we can try to listen and help, but please don't use the chat to offload all your problems and definitely don't use it to lash out.

4. If you have an issue with another member, take it off the Chatbox and into PMs/IMs. Better yet, drop the issue completely. If the other does continue you're free to call in staff, just don't try and fight it out in the C-Box.
4a. If somebody is uncomfortable with the conversation and asks you to drop a subject, drop it.

5. Backseat modding is serious enough to mention it again. Back away and get a staff member involved if there are problems.

6. When you RP in the C-Box make sure it's open to everyone whenever they show up. Finding a way in is their job, but don't make it harder with places they can't reach or tight-knit groups that would keep them from getting involved.
