Board rules

These rules are disclosed to clarify the various responsibilities of all community members here on DelugeRPG Forums. They shall be adhered to by everyone to ensure that our board runs smoothly and provides a fun and productive experience for all of our community members and visitors.

  1. Posting

    1. You may not create separate posts or threads asking about values of pokemon, or asking whether a trade is fair or not #
    2. All posts must be in English. Posts in other languages are not allowed due to difficulty in moderation of such posts. #
    3. Bump posts are not allowed outside of the Trading Forum. Refer to the rules there for further information. #
    4. Do not have your post or thread title in all capital letters. Also do not use excessive punctuation, emojis or clickbait titles for attention. #
    5. You may not create posts requesting people to visit/join/subscribe/follow or equivalent on another website #
  2. Account

    1. You may not create more than one account on this Forum.

      If your previous account is banned, you may not create another one. #
    2. Forum accounts may not be shared by multiple people #
    3. Forum accounts may not be transferred to another person #
  3. Spam

    1. Do not reply to yourself. Edit your last post instead. No matter how excited you are about the topic. #
    2. Bumping threads is only allowed in the Trading Forum. Refer to Trading forum rules for more information. #
    3. Do not have your post or title in all capital letters or lots of special characters. You might think it draws attention to your thread, but when everyone decides to do it, its simply illegible garbage. #
    4. Use a proper title. Something that gives people an idea of what your thread is about. Something specific to your thread. Not something vague like 'Trade' or 'Idea'. #
    5. Don't use flashing/glittering/distracting text or images in your posts. #
    6. Change the size and color of your titles using bbcode instead of images of text #
    7. Do not use unnecessary images or gifs in your posts. Do not waste people's bandwidth.
      Keep the total size of all the custom images in your post to less than 1MB #
  4. Behaviour

    1. Be nice to others. Don't start fights. We don't care who started it #
    2. Do not hijack other people's threads. If your post is unrelated to what the thread was created for, create a separate thread. #
    3. Do not beg for free stuff. No asking for free accounts, free pokemon or joining accounts #
    4. All non-english posts go into the Non-English forum. Not anywhere else. #
    5. Keep all trading within the trading forum. (Except non-english. Refer to previous rule) #
  5. Signature

    1. If your signature is larger than most of your posts, it will be removed. #
    2. Do not use unnecessary images in your signature. Don't waste other people's bandwidth. #
    3. Do not use flashing/glittering/distracting text or images in your signatures #
    4. Consider un-ticking the 'Attach a Signature' option when you post if your signature is taking up most of the page's space. #
    5. The Signature is not the place to list your trades or list your team or the pokemon you like. A link to your profile or trade thread is fine. #
    6. You may link to your trade threads, clan threads or any other thread you may want to bring attention to. Do not directly link to other sites you are trying to promote.
      That is if you have a clan site or chat, that link goes in your clan thread and the link to the thread can go in your signature. #
