There are a few things we do not wish discussed in any form on these boards:
1. The Big NO-NO's
Politics, Sexuality, and Religion. Nothing here, or in a galaxy far, far away, will more quickly get anyone more personally committed, resolutely defensive, or completely polarized than these three things. We're all intelligent people capable of discussing these three things rationally - but not here. This is a forum created by OSRGAMING for the discussion gold old TSR games. It's also a place to be a part of an amazing global community. As such, it's tempting to get to know your friends here by learning about their views on The Big Three. This is what email is for, or a PM, if you must. Please keep it off the boards. There are plenty of public boards devoted to each one of The Big Three, or all of them. This isn't one of those boards.
We all use big adult words and naughty language - along with adult references. But we like to think we do not (and never will) cross the line into being "vulgar." We expect the same from this community. Posts or images of a graphic or sexual nature are prohibited. As for language... there's no filter on the boards. Just be nice, please. We try to keep our language civil whenever possible, so please do the same. We're not going to flip out and ban you for using a "bad" word (though you might find it edited), but we're going to take issue to you dropping the F-Bomb in every post.
Abuse in any form or fashion will not be tolerated! No kidding. No joke. Any form of verbal threat or harassment will result in an immediate lock of your account here, followed by (most likely) an immediate IP Address ban. Bye. We also have a zero tolerance policy for trolling, baiting, or flaming. It tends to happen in forums - but we do not want to see it here. Our moderators have the full authority (and encouragement) to lock threads, edit posts, and do other nasty things for those determined to be morons.
Yeah, NO. Any spamming of these forums in any fashion at all will result in an immediate account termination and IP Address ban. Forever. Note that announcements of Kickstarts, indiegogo's, crowdsources and whatever else is considered fundraisers, are to be approved by staff before posting. Please email Lord Nikon, or Dizzysaxophone. Otherwise, post will be deleted.
5. File Sharing and PDFs
We're fans. Fans who enjoy these games and have a great respect for their creators and designers - and the companies they work for. As such, we would NEVER condone the theft of their intellectual property by allowing our forums to be used as a source of information on how to obtain illegal files, or copies of these purchasable games. If you have a PDF of a purchasable item that wasn't sanctioned, or that you haven't paid for - it is illegal - and it is theft. No different from walking into the store and shoving the book under your shirt. Having said that - maybe your PDF is legal (maybe it isn't). We don't really care.
You MAY share FREE material, as long as the material was never available for purchase, and was intended to be shared at will, we will allow this. But talking about ways to receive or share purchasable material illegally simply will not be tolerated.
All new accounts have 30 days to post, otherwise the system will deactivate zero post accounts. Thank you.
If you have any questions or concerns about the these rules, please email or PM myself, or one of the moderators.
Thank you for reading, guys (and gals). Let's make this community a strong one!
