Our first priority is to create a safe and friendly environment for our Role Players. Failure to act responsibly and comply with these rules may result in the termination of your access to the forums. These rules are for all MC Forums. There are also forum-specific rules posted in each forum - please read the rules in each board before posting.

On this forum it's better to ask permission than beg forgiveness. If you have any questions about these rules, please feel free to contact any member of the Forum Staff and Forum Staff Assistants.





Follow the rules and guidelines. Enjoy your time here!

There is no reason for any user to have more than one forum account; any additional accounts created will be banned. This rule only applies to the MC Inc Home Forum, all other subforums of the MC Inc name will have their own account rules. The creation of multiple accounts on the main forum may result in disciplinary action being taken against your original account.Please note however;That each forum has its own account so this rule only applies to each site you can only have one account for site

Your forum account is your identity. If you share your account with someone and they break the rules, it will be treated the same as if you broke the rules yourself. If you give your account away, you have given away your identity; any future account you create will be treated as a multiple account for the same person.

Additionally, we advise you not to save your Forum password as a Cookie on any shared private computer account or on any Public Computer. We also advise not using a password other people could easily guess. Also note that passwords should never match a password you have used anywhere else. Accidental (or malicious) sharing of an account can cause your account to be considered a multiple account.

Do not post anything that may offend or inflame another user.

That includes, but is not limited to:

# Any sexually explicit images or language,
# Graphic violence,
# Offensive language that targets another based on gender, race, ethnicity, color, creed, religion or lifestyle.
# Threatening, harassing, flaming or trolling anyone is not permitted. Any instance of misbehavior directed toward another user will result in any consequences deemed appropriate by forum staff.

Inappropriate content that is not permitted on the forums includes (but is not limited to):

# content that breaks any laws
# copyright infringement (many MP3s, ROMs, etc.), warez, CD keys, cracks, passwords, serial numbers, etc.
# gambling and drugs
# hacking materials and information
# terrorism (promotion/carrying it through)
# trojans, viruses, worms, and other such harmful things
# Trick links
# Pranking posts
# Referral/recruitment links
# Petitions both for offsite purposes
# Advertising of any kind outside of the designated area
# Spam
# Feedback or complaints that are not constructive or politely offered
# Discussing abusable bugs or instructing others in how to exploit known bugs
# Do not post spoilers without using the spoiler tag

(Update- Sub rule for posting)
# Do not Spam.

Spam is anything that is not directly related to the topic at hand, as well as any additions to a post that are deemed superfluous and unnecessary. This includes (but is not limited to):

# Excessive smilies
# Signature overuse
# Roleplaying outside of the RP forums
# Bumping a dead thread
# Using all caps, oversized font or other excessive formatting such as color, font face, strikeouts, etc.
# Applying official tags (=MC=,=CB=,=VEN=etc.) to your thread
# Posting a thread aimed at an individual; use the PM system if you want to have a discussion with one person.
You are responsible for the security of your account and your personal information.

While posting for another user is not permitted, posting private information - yours or another's - is also prohibited. Do not release your age, location, or any contact information on the forums. If you do so, it will be removed and any consequences deemed appropriate will be applied.

Do not target, attack or flame other users in public or in private.

As stated in the posting behavior, any instances of flaming, trolling, harassment or any other behaviors deemed offensive or inappropriate are strictly prohibited. This extends to conduct in PM correspondences. Any Private Messages that contain offensive or inflammatory content should be forwarded to any of the forum moderators found on the Forum Staff and Staff Assistants List.

Do not post in any language other than English.

The MC Forums, while used by a diverse cross-section of the global community, are English-speaking so all posts should be submitted in English. Any instances of a foreign language should always be accompanied by verifiable translation. The MC forum staff reserves the right to remove any translations that cannot be verified by independent sources.

Do not impersonate other users, post for anyone other than yourself or claim ownership of what is not yours.

Impersonation of any kind, be it a staff member, another forum user or anyone that you're not is strictly prohibited. This extends to plagiarism; posting something that is not yours and representing it as your work is not allowed and will result in consequences beyond the norm.

Posting for another user is also not allowed - specifically, you may not post for a banned forum member under any circumstances. Users that are banned from the MC Forums receive correspondence that gives them a staff member as a point of contact as well as a link to the help pages as a means of appeal. Therefore, there is never any circumstance under which posting on the forums for a banned user should be necessary. If you are unsure as to whether your action violates the rules, please feel free to PM a forum moderator or Admin.

Updated the user account rules to specify between the home forum and subforums.

Merged the #Spam rules into the #Posting Rules.
