Gateway to Role-Play Rules

Post by Gateway Bot on 10th June 2014, 2:49 pm



The rules of the Gateway are listed below.  Please remember to follow each to the best of your ability and if you have any questions, feel free to ask a staff member.  If you wish to know about the consequences of breaking the rules, feel free to visit this thread:  GtR Sanctions

Please follow the rules or the Gateway Staff will devour your soul!  
Signed, GtR Staff Members -- HikariKuragari, JerriLeah7, EphPhoenix, & Luna



No spamming or straying too far from the thread's topic.
Posts that are obvious trolling or flaming of the board will be immediately removed and the member will be banned.  We do have a spam-based section, but this is for forum games and must still remain on topic towards the game's purpose.  Repeated posting with multiple posts in a row just to get your post count up will not be appreciated.


Forum language is expected to remain appropriate.
Although mild cursing is allowed on the forum as a whole, excessive cursing (especially towards other members) will not be tolerated.  If a role-play's rules express the desire to keep out cursing, you must follow that role-play's rules.  If a person in the chatbox asks that you do not curse excessively around them, please try to be respectful of their wishes.


Be kind to all members.
Do not, under any circumstances, be disrespectful, offensive, or hateful towards other Gateway Members.  If you have a problem with another member, please report it to one of the staff-members before getting into confrontations on the board. We do not allow racial or sexual slurs on our board of any kind, so do not discriminate against others.


You are responsible for keeping up with any and all rule changes.
The rules are edited & updated several times a year--this can include the board rules, role-play guidelines, and other such threads that are found within the rules section.  If you want to know when the rules were last updated, we will post in the thread to let you know that we have given them an update.


Respect all GtR Staff Members under all circumstances.
The Gateway Administrators and Moderators work hard for this forum to keep it clean, organized, and fun to post in.  We always make sure to hire the best, active members that are required to respect you every day, regardless of the situation.  If a staff member is rude to you, simply report that staff member to the Founder, Leah7, and the situation will be taken care of, but please do not be rude in return.


This is an English only forum.
If you do not speak English, we will not be able to moderate or understand anything that you post, so please stick to English in your posts.  You are free to use a site or browser translator, but avoid l33t or net-speak, and try to keep decent grammar in your posts.  Grammar does not have to be perfect, but it does need to be legible.


No non-Gateway advertising is allowed on this forum.
You cannot use any means such as Private Messages, Posts, Excessive Chatbox use for such purposes, signatures, avatars, and Profile Visitor Messages to advertise other sites.  Advertising your role-play, although not excessively, is permitted, but if asked to stop, please do so.  If you wish a particular forum site to be affiliated or want to have an Ad Share, contact an administrator.


Do not make multiple user accounts.
It can get confusing if someone has multiple accounts and there is no need for it, so please refrain from keeping and posting with various accounts.  If you are caught with a second account, we will notify you and ask you to tell us which one to delete.  If you do not respond after a reasonable time period, we will delete your least active account.


Absolutely no pornographic or explicit content is permitted on this site.
If any explicit or sexual posts or profile details are discovered, they will be immediately removed and you will be warned only once.  Should you repeat this offense, you will be banned.  This type of content is not welcome on the Gateway and any such content would force our host to delete the forum entirely.  


Keep the Gateway Chatbox cool and friendly.
If it's a rule on the forum, it's a rule in the chatbox, so keep to all rules and do not spam, troll, use excessive caps, or continue a heated argument within the chatbox.  Smiley use is always okay, but please do not use these excessively, either.  You can post a short, meaningless message to keep from being disconnected from the Chatbox, if this become necessary.


You may not have an overly large signature in size.
Please keep all signatures a decent size without illicit content and should you have multiple signatures, be sure to spoiler all but one or all of them so that they do not take up too much space on any one page of the board. (If inappropriate content is found, your signature(s) will be removed by a staff member.)
