Forum Rules
All Forum Crimes result in losing all of your Beads, in addition to the listed punishment.
(Mods/Admins, PM me the name of the rule-breaker so I can remove their Beads)


Crime Punishment

KEEP YOUR PROFILE APPROPRIATE
This includes your display name, signature, avatar, comments box, location, and any other customizable area.

Full clearing of profile->permaban

NO SWEARING!
Most of the swears are filtered to begin with.
Do not attempt to bypass those filters.
(Hell and Damn are okay, as long as they are not directed towards a person.)
Example: "Aww hell no!" = OK - "Go to hell!" = NOT OK
God-D*** is NOT OK, as it can be very offensive to some.


1 day to permaban, depending on severity.

KEEP IT PG13!
Instead of thinking this is unfair, consider this: Originally it was going to be PG.

1 day ban to permaban, depending on severity

NO DEBATES OR DEBATABLE TOPICS!
This includes, but is not limited to, topics about Religion and sexual-orientation.
These topics can cause endless debates, and spark flamewars, and we will not tolerate that.
And if a Mod/Admin tells you to drop it, then drop it, or it will be handled as disrespect.


7 day ban->permaban

OBEY AND RESPECT THE STAFF
We don't care who you are, you DO NOT disrespect the staff here. If you have an issue with a staff member, you may send Nessie a calm PM, telling her what's wrong, and she will look into it.

7 to 30 day ban->permaban

NO IMPERSONATING ANYONE
This is an in-excusable offense, and will not be taken lightly, as it is usually done to start trouble.

1 day ban->permaban

NO FLAMING, BASHING OR BULLYING
There is no excuse for flaming or bashing anyone.
We do not care who you are, or how angry you are, you will NOT flame/bash/bully ANYONE here.
If you have a problem with someone, calmly PM an Admin and we'll look into it.


7 to 10 day ban->permaban

NO WHINING OR DRAMA-LLAMAS
This includes, but is not limited to, whining about the server status, an item, wanting to be on staff, your life, etc.
It will be left up to staff discretion whether or not you are whining, so watch yourself.


1 to 7 day ban->permaban

NO SPAMMING
This includes, but is not limited to, "bumping" topics, overuse of Smileys, etc.
Spam is just plain annoying. Don't do it.


1 to 7 day ban->permaban

NO MINI-MODDING!
There's a bit of confusion about mini-modding, so let me try to clarify:
"Hey, you shouldn't do that, it's against the rules." = OK
"You didn't read the rules or you'd know better than to do that, now you're gonna get banned!" = NOT OK
If you are not staff, you don't have the right to say someone will get banned/punished.


1 to 7 day ban->permaban

NO BEGGING FOR ANYTHING
Don't beg for help, for Beads, for the download, for anything.
It's highly annoying, and nobody wants to read it.


1 to 7 day ban->permaban

USE CORRECT GRAMMAR
We realize not everyone speaks perfect English. However, we require you to at least *try* using correct grammar. So no tlkin liek dis or 7a1k1ng 11k3 7h1$.

1 to 7 day ban->permaban

13+ ONLY!
This is COPPA Law and we can get in very real, very serious trouble if we don't enforce it.
If a member of staff asks your age, you must answer.
Failure to answer (and answer truthfully!) will result in an insta-ban.
If we feel you are lying about your age, you will be permanently permabanned.


Permaban until 13th Birthday

NO DOUBLE-POSTING
There are only two exceptions to this rule.
If you are setting up a shop/gallery/tutorial/etc., you may double post for organizational purposes.
There are also some contests/official boards where double-posting is allowed.
These boards will state right in the first post whether or not double-posting is OK.


Deletion of extra posts, plus a warning->1 to 7 day ban

DO NOT EXCEED SIGNATURE SIZES
You may have one 600px by 200px or smaller banner in your signature, plus a small blurb of text.
Clickables like DragonCave and Magistream are OK, but please limit yourself to one or two.
It is up to staff discretion to decide of a signature contains too much content.


Clearing of signature

POST IN THE APPROPRIATE SECTIONS
There is a specific board for almost anything you can think of to post. Please make sure to post where your subject best fits.
If you're not sure, PM a Mod/Admin


Moving of topic or deletion if it's done on purpose.

NO ART THEFT
This is something that will definitely not be tolerated. It's OK to display someone else's art in your avatar or signature if you have their permission. DO NOT, however, claim anything that isn't your 100% unique work as your own. We will find out, and you will be punished.

7 day to permaban, depending on severity of offense

NO ADVERTISING OTHER FORUMS
It's alright to mention another forum, and it's totally fine to advertise for our affiliates. But don't come on IK trying to drag our members away.

7 day to permaban, depending on severity of offense

SCREENIES OR VIDEOS ARE NEEDED
If you wish to report a rule being broken, you must provide screenshot or video proof
of the rule-breaking, or we cannot punish anyone.
If you continually "report" users without solid proof, we may ban you.
(Mod/Admins are exempt from this rule.)


1 to 30 day ban, if continued proof-less reports are made


NO ONE is above the law.
All Guests, Members, Devs., MiTs, Mods, and Admins must abide by these rules at ALL times.
If you're caught breaking them, you'll all be dealt with equally.
