General Rules



  • While debating and discussion is fine, we will not tolerate excessive rudeness, extreme profanity (or attempts to bypass profanity filters), insulting posts, personal attacks or purposeless inflammatory posts. Our decision is final in these matters.
  • Please refrain from posting meaningless threads, one word (or short) non-sense posts, or the such.
  • Multiple or repeated posting in order to increase your post count is not allowed.
  • Advertising, spamming and trolling is not allowed. This includes using the forum, email, visitor messages, blog comments, picture comments and private message systems to spam other members.
  • Please wait a reasonable amount of time before bumping posts.
  • We also do not allow posts or links to sites that are sexual in nature or violate BoN community standards. The BoN team shall be the sole arbitrator of what does and what does not violate community standards. (The mature area is exempt to the sexual part of this rule)
  • Discussion of illegal activities such as software and music piracy and other intellectual property violations are not allowed.
  • Each member is allowed one login account. Registering with multiple accounts is not allowed.
  • We reserve the right to remove offensive posts without notice.
  • If you are going to post non-English on these forums, please also post an English Translation of your post.
  • Posts discussing moderator actions are also not allowed. Please contact The Noodle privately.
  • Also while these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way.
  • You cannot post advertisements or notices for contests.
  • We also reserve the right to ban anyone who wilfully violates the forum rules.
  • Impersonating a staff member's signature or name
  • Re-creating locked threads is grounds for instant temp-ban.

Advertising Services and Solicitation



We do not allow people to post threads or to send private messages or emails to users here that advertise or solicit any products, services, funds or donations. Explicit advertising and soliciting in signatures is also prohibited.



Links in signatures must follow these guidelines



  • A link and promotional text for a site that is not commercial and does not contain product(s) and/or service(s) is allowed, provided the site is not sexual or does not violate Bowl Of Noodles community standards. The BoN team shall be the sole arbitrator of what does and what does not violate community standards. (Examples include sites about drugs and/or sex.)
  • Duplicate links to the same URL in a signature are not allowed.
  • All signatures must be made in English

Avatars



  • Avatars that may be confused with official staff avatars are not allowed.

Ban Appeal Threads:



  • You may not post more than one ban appeal per ban
  • You may not argue against an Admin's decision
  • You may not post your opinion of someone else's ban appeal.

Signature Size Limits



All signatures should not exceed the following limits

  • For text signatures: 4 lines normal size, 8 lines small size and up to 90 chars per line. Font sizes above 2 are not allowed. (Blank lines count as lines.)
  • Do not use images with large text to bypass the previous item
  • For images in signatures: 1 image up to 300 pixels wide, 125 pixels tall and 20k in size

Moderation



Although the administrators and moderators of Bowl Of Noodles will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this forum, it is impossible for us to review all messages. All messages express the views of the author, and not the owners of Bowl Of Noodles.

By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws.



Staff Disputes



Any disputes with the staff of the BoN community forum will be handled by private message to The_Noodle



Addendum



We reserve the right to update and modify these rules as the needs of the community dictate to ensure the smooth operation of this community.

Copied from home BoN forums, as a general reference. Really these should not need to be here, but hey, some people don't understand common courtesy.

That is not an official rule, it is just a Tom-rule, and therefore does not get a place in the official rules.

There is an allowance for one pony-thread, but all pony-related posts must be posted in that thread only.
