Forum rules update Sept. 16 2019:

Most of the rules have been rearranged or reworded, please go over them all.

To brief the changes:
  • Added "Administrative Section" and "Staff Moderation" sections, both with mostly new rules.
  • Removed "Forum Rules," "Requests & Help," and "Warning System" sections.
    • This does not mean any rules listed under these are gone.
  • Changed rules against offensive language, disrespect, spam, NSFW content, advertising, avatars/images, and PMs.
  • Added rule against abusing Report function.
