In an attempt to promote good fellowship and to improve overall site content, I have come up with some simple site rules. From time to time, these rules may change. Stickys will usually be posted if there are major changes.
These violations will definitely get you banned without any warnings.
Mods will always be on the lookout for these.
1. Excessive bashing based on race/sex/gender/sexual orientation or being consistently unpleasant to other TheOffTopic members.
2. Registration of more than 1 username.
3. Spam - Also PM Spam will get you banned, your personal info will be posted and I will post your IP address + where you live.
4. Posting naked images outside of the NSFW forum.
5. Posting copyrighted content without permission, or using this site to obtain illegal software/product keys and other warez related content.
6. Posting personal information in the forums, even if they are publicly available.
7. Posting anything from other forums without linking it.
8. Posting ANY SORT OF SPOILERS without a *SPOILER* Tag on the message title. This includes: Video Games, TV Shows and Movies. Only applies to media that has been released for LESS than 2 weeks. After 2 weeks, you should know already.
9. Just so we are clear, racist jokes, pictures and other humorous items are NOT actually deemed racist unless they are presented with hate. A funny picture is a funny picture. (see "Katrina Looter Dude") Now if you want to just call someone a stupid nigger, this is not the place for you. But hell, if you want to laugh at a good race stereotype related joke/picture, I'll laugh with you.
10. English Only Please.
11. Ignoring requests of the admins/mods.
1. Sig w/ forum link. We do not allow these here. Once it is removed if you put it back up you will be banned. We allow links to anywhere in your profile.
2. NSFW Avatars. Avatars must be work safe.
3. Rickrolling is bannable.
Dont make porn your first post. Dont troll your first post. You will be gone. (You dont have access to the adult forum).
Make some sort of contribution before you do all that shit.
