Site Rules!

Recommended Posts

This is a simple list of the rules for our site, as long as you follow these very simple instructions, you'll be fine.

 

  • Age – You must be at least 18 years or older to use the site. Anyone found younger will have their account closed until the date they turn 18.
     
  • Flaming & Hateful Material – You will not post abusive, hateful, or hurtful slurs, words or images towards any member, and will treat all individuals with respect. This also applies to your forum signature and avatar. Racist, sexist, homophobic and other hateful language and images will not be tolerated. Personal attacks are forbidden, and arguments and/or debates will be reasonable and intelligent.
     
  • Profanity – You will refrain from excessive use of profanity, especially as relating to the matter noted above.
     
  • Pornographic Material – Anything that you wouldn’t want to show your boss must be tagged NSFW and also tagged NSFW in the thread title. Note: there will be absolutely no porn of actual people on this site period. This includes any lewd pictures of yourself, it brings too many legal problems for the site. Artwork of any kind, however, is just fine so long as it is tagged. If you are ever unsure if what you’re posting is or is not allowed ask a moderator.
     
  • Spamming – You will not ruin topics by flooding, spamming, or posting clearly irrelevant material. Whether or not a post is spam will be judged by our staff at their discretion. Double-posting will only be tolerated if a topic has been inactive for a 30-day period and if the reviving post attempts to further discussion. Exceptions to this do exist, especially for artists sharing art in their own threads, and roleplays being revived by other participants. 
     
  • Written Form – So-called "l33t speak" should be avoided where possible, its a poor way of communicating with others, and can be downright annoying. Good grammar and language are greatly encouraged, as is regular use of punctuation.
     
  • Personal Information – You will not, under any circumstance, post personal information of another member on the forum. This includes, but is not limited to, IP addresses, names, and contact information. This will get you permanently banned.
     
  • Illegal Activities – You will not discuss unlawful activities and will not violate any laws through the forum. Punishment for such will be a permanent ban. However, do note that it's all a matter of context and severity; like in the case of drugs: we allow for discussion on the matter as long as the discussion is primarily based around opinions and not organizing or promoting their use. We do not encourage or condone such acts of drug use, but we understand that opinions can be expressed. 
     
  • Forgery – You will not engage in forgery of any kind. Impersonation, illegal manipulation, and general forgery are unacceptable. 
     
  • Piracy – You will not engage in Internet piracy or in the sharing or distributing of viruses, licenses, registration information, or any other pirated or "cracked" information. Discussions offering information on illegal file-sharing networks will not be tolerated.
     
  • Advertising – Must be kept to the proper forum section artists seeking commissioners will be allowed to make as many topics as they need. TFD reserves all rights to deny and remove advertisements of any kind as this is a free service.
     
  • Restricted Pages – You will not attempt to access any normally restricted pages on the forum, namely the Administrative Control Panel or another member’s account. This will get you permanently banned from the site.
     
  • Multiple Accounts – You will not create or use multiple accounts. Doing so will result in an automatic ban for both accounts. If you share internet with someone else that uses the site, let someone know so we can make a note of it.
     
  • Avatar & Signature – You may have an avatar and are allowed to have images in your signature. Please make sure that they are not too large, or contain content that shouldn't be visible outside of certain areas. Signatures and avatars may be removed at the staff's discretion.
     
  • Art Theft/Plagiarism – If you claim artwork or literature that is not your own your account will be banned. The protection of our artists and authors is taken very seriously and theft will not be tolerated.
     
  • Spoilers – If you are presenting spoilers of any sort, you will use spoiler tags; failing to do so will result in a warning. A spoiler constitutes any information on characters, story elements, or dialogue.
     
  • Name Changes – Name changes are allowed for site supporters only, an exception can be made in certain cases and you should contact an admin if you think yours might be one of these.
     
  • Termination of Service – We reserve the right to terminate any account, for any reason, without warning.
