    Lightbulb READ OT Forum Games Rules and Regulation READ

    Basics: There is now a OT Games Forum- the admins have agreed to have one on a trial basis, provided at it requires minimal modding, minimal trouble, and their bosses don't mind. This privledge can be revoked at any time.

    Rules = See OT rules, generally, as well as your user agreement and the forum rules.

    Mod = jacob-Lundgren, PM him if there is a serious problem you can't resolve; then Blade! if j-L is not available- if it is an emergency, PM a supermod or an admin... but only in an emergency.

    Stickies = Ongoing games will not be stickied; threads which require sticking and unsticking will not exist.

    The OT = Do not spam the OT with advertisements and spam threads. THe whole point of having a separate forum is so you can do your thing here- the cost is missing out in the traffic. You CAN have a thread in the OT to attract people or sign-up or somthing. Do not let me catch more than 1 WW thread in the OT at any time, I do not care what the exscuse is. You can have a link in your sig.

    #1 Rule: Enjoy.

    #2 Rule:Players cannot impersonate other forum members, especially parodies, by way of theme of game.
    This rule, might be circumvented by the players understanding that the GM is requesting, and the imitated party states to Blade!:"I, ______________, give my permission, on a limited basis for one game of WW for you to imitate me or derivative likenesses of me; no matter how degrading, stupid, incorrect or offensive I feel it becomes, I waive my right to complain hereafter. If I do need to complain, because I feel the condiions result in egregious behavior so bad that I feel in the best interest of my mental health a breach of this contract would be appropriate, I will contact Blade directly, and he will construe this statement against the WW players and especially the GM."

    Administrative warning

    The Admins have come down from the heights above and given me tablets bearing their testimony and wrath.

    I am bringing the message that if your games interfere with other forums and break rules, that this forum will be shut down and all such games banned.

    In particular they cite as an example: http://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/...d.php?t=411931

    This particular game spawning to the Admins, "complaints and warnings about duplicate accounts based on these guys impersonating each other." It takes a lot of time to track down stuff like that, and I am sure you all can appreciate that the Admins don't like to waste their time with nonsense stuff that they could be using to track down serious threats and to issues that will help improve the board.

    Please be conscientious about how your games are going to reverbrate through the rest of the forum.

    ~Blade!, WW Mod and Recipient of Admin Wrath, who yet rose again to bear testimony and redeem you of sin

    #3 Rule:The Number of Games Shall be Limited.
    There shall be no more than 1 large WW game. There shall be no more than 2 WW Lite and 1 WW Micro games at any one time, but no player may play in more than 1 WW Lite/Micro game at a time. There shall be no more than one of any other individual other game at one time (e.g. there can be a Zombie game and a Battlestar game going on, but not 2 Zombie games. Some larger, quasi-RP games, may have supplemenatary threads for data consolidation with mod approval.)
    #3.1 Rule:The Number of Game threads Shall be Limited.
    Each game is normally permitted only 1 thread for its operations and needs. Additional threads are possible on a very limited basis but typically only for a game type that runs its course frequently and needs long term threads of some kind to support it or for record keeping purposes. Permission is required for threads beyond the original game thread.
    #4 Rule: Micro Games.
    a. Each Micro thread shall run for 5 Micro Games, i.e. WW Micro 1-5 shall be in one thread, 6-10 in another etc. etc. - The Thread Starter will maintain an index in the first post of the thread, linking to the start of each new game.

    b. Priority for Micro games shall be to those who have never played Micro, then to those who have never played any kind of werewolf.


    I have howled.

    jacob-Lundgren is now a Demi-mod of this forum, which means he is a werewolf, that on full moons turns into a van Helsing, and every night is a full moon.

    Reminder to watch language

    Issuing a reminder to people, watch the language and watch the content of posts in general. We have a nice relaxed atmosphere, lets keep it that way and not creep towards having to enforce more harshly against language issues. I understand people joke more, know each other much better and so forth but lets keep it as friendly as possible and watch the RP language as well. Good RP will often slide near the boundary for other rules but don't let it jump over or end up too sexually explicit. This is a tight group of people overall and its only human nature to more be casual with those we know better and spend more time around and that is understandable, but there are still limits.

    This will be stickied for a while and it is expected that all stickied threads are read.

    I am taking this time to clarify the general forum rules on Racism in the Form of OT Rule 12.


    Elaboration on rule 12 is as follows:
    Paradox Forum users are from all races and walks of life; any perception of serious advocacy of racial superiority or derogation of other races and nationalities will be construed as genuine and dealt with accordingly as being offensive to Paradox's customer base. This includes references to and discussion about "remove kebab" (by Admin Order on 3/14/14). Likewise, the perception of serious use of racial epithets like nigger, chink, honky, etc. will be construed as genuine and are not allowed.
