PostSubject: The Rules - Key to a Great RP Experience   Tue Feb 17, 2009 9:24 pm

Essentially, this adds up the rules. You don't have to like them, but you should follow them, for your sake and for others' sake.

    1. Have Common Sense. If it doesn't feel right, don't do it. It's always better to keep things to yourself if they don't seem like a good idea to publicize. If you do not want to do something, state. If you can't do something, state. Give yourself limits.
    2. Be cool to others--especially your superiors. You are entitled to your own opinions and ideas, but remember, so does everyone else. If someone is not treating you the way you would like to be treated, please talk to an administrator as soon as possible.
    3. Be mature as you can be at all times. There are times for messing around, and times to be serious. If another person is not following this rule DO NOT follow along with it as it causes it to become even larger and worse than before. Appreciate that you're here, but don't abuse the privilege of staying.
    4. OOC Chat should not be spammed. If there's a delay to the OOC chat, don't complain about it--it's there for a reason. Please remember that people are here to roleplay and this is a roleplay server, not a chat room. Take discussions, debates, and idiocy to Steam Friends.
    5. No-one can take your freedom of choice from you without consent. The same goes for everyone else, and you. You and your characters have a right to be alive. If someone is bothering you to do something to your character(s) that you do not want to do, you are not entitled to do them. Think about what you ask of others before asking.
    6. No religious discussions on the server or the forums unless it is IN CHARACTER. We do not care if you worship God. We do not care if you believe in the Devil. Take it OUTSIDE of Olden's forums and server. Be respectful of what you say about other's religions and beliefs as well.
    7. If you're not mature or responsible enough to handle any kind of roleplay, don't do it. If you are going to fool around about someone doing a certain roleplay, then you are not following this rule. If you cannot responsibly roleplay on our server, then you will be punished appropriately. Do not abuse your rights to roleplay.
    8. Explicit Sex Talk AND roleplay is not allowed on the server OR the forums. Things like Kissing, simple IC nudity, and mild, "tasteful" sexual topics do not count. This means: No nude pictures, explicit content or conversations, or suggestive material are allowed. Take it to Steam Friends ONLY. Pregnancy / Children / Minor IC mention is all okay. Do not tell anyone about your sensual encounters / experiences in OldenRP!
    9. We let you do what you want. But, if it is in the wrong time and place, Expect consequences. Remember rule 1, have common sense about everything you do. We want you to have a fun and safe experience, but we want you to also be responsible.
    10. In Character private roleplay (talking and the like) can and -may- be altered (interrupted, mocked, spoiled, etc.) In-characterly by any other characters on the server. YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO COUNTER THIS OOCLY. (And vice versa.) Just like in real life, people can barge into your house and interrupt you--your house is not an isolated world. If you wish to roleplay privately without this possibility, take it to SFRP.
    Oh, and this is not an excuse for people to randomly barge into any attempt for conversation--Rule 1, people.

    11. No racial comments, actions, or cultural segregation on the forums or server unless it is IN CHARACTER. Do not insult blacks or whites for their color, because it doesn't matter what they look like here, it matters how they act.
    12. Do not use full names that have already been used, nor any mockeries or parodies of these names, (including company names, celebrity names, vehicle names, or building names) For example, 'Ford Ford' or 'Gordon Frohman'.
    13. Idiotic responses are to be kept to a minimum within serious threads. There is a thing called excessiveness, people. Use common sense on when to be serious and not. Punishment is from a warning, to a day ban, to a week.

Edited Rule 8 somewhat by decree of the council, its a bit more lax now, but is still enforced to a point.

Just a quick note, people have been asking, demanding, blackmailing or bitching to me that I solve this problem with autoplay trolling.

Personally? I don't see it as that much of a problem, maybe it's just because it's hard to hear anything past a bottle of Jack Daniels and a fat cat meowing like a motherfucker for treats.

But, if people are having that much of a problem with it, I can say, if it's your thread, and people can pause/stop it, then you can put it in the original post. Anywhere else, autoplay isn't really appropriate. This isn't a definite rule, though bans probably would be handed out if autoplay is abused, but whatever, I've yet to notice you guys NOT being mature about autoplay, so you guys don't have much to argue with.
