Official Forum & Site Rules.
Respect other members of the site and forum! From staff to new members. Respect religion, sexuality, race, etc. Do NOT bash or give negative reactions/responses if you don't like someone's point of view. People may have their different points of views, but please don't make others mad with it. Respect them as well. People don't appreciate it when you argue with them for their opinion. They have a right to say something too. Please be friendly to the new people joining EF. Try to help direct them to the rules, help tutorials, and even how to report. Try to also make them feel welcomed!
Sexual related topics.
Do NOT make sexual posts on the forum as this could lead to younger players being offended. Sexual topics should, at least, be kept in private messages, not shown in public. Don't post anything too explicit, anyone caught doing that [PM or not] will have action taken against them. Engaging in sexual conversations with a minor of the site or game will be reported on the spot and to the authorities.
Inappropriate links/pictures/videos are not allowed on the forum, as we are a friendly forum and we don't want anyone to be offended or argumental about it. Don't put inappropriate pictures or .gif files in your signature or avatar. Keep in mind that younger players are engaged in IT servers too.
Do not bully one another on the forum, as it can be considered cyberbullying and is taken seriously. PM a staff member if you're being bullied. This will not be acceptable in the site and forum. [Please try to provide screenshot proof as we can't really do anything if it becomes just a "He said she said" case.] Please try to be polite to one another. We get people may not be the friendliest, but don't go lashing out at someone for something silly, or for no reason at all. This rule also goes with the bullying and respecting rule.
Spamming the forums is not approved of. If you do spam, your posts may be removed off the forum. Double or triple posting is acceptable if you are updating something, and it's not being done in the same period of time. Please try to edit your post, instead of making a new one. Smilies in posts do not count as "words" when you post, so don't let your post be all "xD" if someone on the site has something funny or something. At least try to post a sentence worth of a response, or nothing at all.
Off-topic and roleplay.
In the off-topic roleplay section of the forum, you are expected to follow the rules of the creator of the roleplay there, even if they are not a moderator or administrator of the site. All rules must be obeyed, no accept ions.
Claiming are we?
Do not claim a picture/preset/screenshot etc. as your own. We get you find it pretty, but please ask to use any work from others. If you found a random picture from the internet, don't claim it as yours either! If you are claimed to be claiming other peoples work without their permission we will find out about it and you may be in huge trouble.
If you find someone to break the rules, then please screenshot them and report it! You can tell them to stop, but do so only ONCE or a FEW times. Do not ACT like a staff member and keep scolding them! If you see a known staff member online, please get them instead of dealing with it yourself! Matters will get worse!
Impersonating someone or a member of staff?
Impersonation of someone on the site or someone else from another site is not allowed. Impersonating a staff member is HIGHLY against the rules, and if found to be impersonating that you are staff, you will banned on the spot. Again, no accept ions.
Hackers are not tolerated.
Want to hack the site or game? No, I don't think so. Anyone who hacks the site of the game will be banned on the spot. If you want to make a game like Eternal Fantasy, or even IT, then look up on how to do it. Instead of picking on other people's hard work. We have also put a secure protection on the site and game. There is no way you can try hack it.
13 or under?
You may be any age to join the website or game, but if you are under 13 years old, we will allow you unless you are showing signs of immaturity. If you are under 13 years old and mature enough on the site or game, we will let you on, but if you are not mature, you will be banned until you are old enough according to the COPPA. On a side note for members 13 and under, if you make a biography, it is recommended not to post a picture of yourself in the biographies section. This is for privacy reasons, as we don't want anything to happen to you.
Post threads in the right section.
Post threads in their proper sections. If a thread is not in a proper section, staff has full right to move it to its proper home. If a thread topic is of something that's already in another thread, the new thread will be closed and directed to the older thread. Please look for answers to your questions before asking! If you have a problem with this rule, PM a member of staff!
Please keep your pictures small enough so they're not whomping huge on a thread. In your signature, you must keep the picture smaller, it takes up a ton of room. We also ask that you keep harshly bright colors, or rapid flashing pictures/gifs off the site, we don't want to hurt other people's eyes or hurt someone who has epolepsy.
In-Game Discussion on Bans/kicks are not to be discussed!
We don't want it discussed for various reasons; one, because then you have to bring others into business that isn't theirs, and two, instead of ranting about it to the public, why not take it to the people who sentenced you. Again, if you have a problem with actions, or are unclear as to what YOU did to get punished, then simply ask a moderator, or an Admin if you feel a MOD can't help you.
