The Rules of BlueMoon Roleplaying have been STREAMLINED. This is to benefit staff and members alike. They should be easier to read, as well as to follow, and, most importantly, no one should complain that they are cumbersome to go through. So, whether a new member, a current member, or a returning member, GO THROUGH THEM! Become familiar with the rules of our house and have fun while you are our guest. Should we choose to update this thread, an announcement will precede it in the 'Rules & Announcements' section.

Thank you,
DarkAngel76.

INTRODUCTION

SITE FAQ



INTRODUCTION

Welcome to BlueMoon! Now that you’ve found us and are reading the site’s, your FIRST TASK is to go to ‘Introductions’ and introduce yourself, if you haven’t already. Go. Now.

(Not doing so MAY result in your account being deleted since a post count is one sure fire way to let us know that you aren’t a spammer.)

Below is the list of colors and what they mean here on BMR:

Dark Red: Head Administrator (aka Supervillain)
Bright Red: Sub-Administrator (aka Anti-Hero)
Green: Global Moderator (aka Superheroine)
Pinkish-Purple: Sectional Moderator
Purple: Welcoming Committee
Pink: Design Team
Orange: Recruiter
Dark Blue: Supporter
Yellow: Superposter (top 12, non-staff posters for BMR)
Light Blue: Site Members
Aqua: Over Bumper (hint ~ you do NOT want to be in this group)

There are also GMs, who appear light blue (the same color as Site Members). These members are those who run their own Group RPs and have the ability to do basic thread management for THEIR GROUP RP ONLY! They are NOT mods and should not be treated as such nor act as such.

Guidelines
I. You agree to obey the rules and laws of the United States while within these forums. This includes, but is not limited to, advocating illegal behavior, posting photographs or videos of bestiality, and making threats.

II. Do not post real-life identifying information about another member.

III. You must be eighteen or older to be a member of this site. If we find anyone who is younger than that, it will result in an immediate ban. Do not make accusations of being underaged without proof.

IV. No lolicon or shotacon, in art or role plays. All characters involved in sex must have entered puberty and be at least fifteen years of age or older, or whatever appropriate equivalent for your fantasy. Underaged sexual photos or other evidence of the exploitation of minors will be reported to the authorities.

V. No nude photos of yourself unless you can reference a 2257 document off-site.

VI. Do not be an asshole. The staff reserves the right to ban jerkfaces at their own discretion. This includes, but is not limited to, harassment, forcing yourself on other roleplays, and being an uncooperative douchebag.

VII. Respect the staff and their time. While trolling in general falls under being an asshole, trolling or attacking staff for doing their jobs will get you kicked even faster.

While the above rules are a great guideline for all to know and follow, the following paragraphs in this rules thread are the ones of MAIN IMPORTANCE as they go into finer detail and expand upon the above.



THE RULES


SITE RULES
including ACTION TAKEN/CONSEQUENCES:

1. You MUST be 18 to join BlueMoon Roleplaying. Anyone found to be under 18 will be banned immediately, no warning.
((Bannable offense, temporary until user turns 18, or perma, depending on situation.))

2. If you see a member, or even someone on staff, breaking either 'guideline' site rules or any of the rules listed anywhere on site, please contact an administrator (presently, darkangel76 or Vekseid).
((If simple issue, members are urged to self-solve. If staff mediation is necessary, staff judgement prevails. If problem still not solved/complex, seek administrator level assistance.))

3. If you have a problem with another member (or even a staff member), try to self-solve IN PRIVATE first. If mediation is needed, seek assistance from a global mod (GREEN name) or an administrator (RED name).
((See consequence for #2.))

4. BlueMoon Roleplaying is not a mental institution/meat market, but a writing site.
((No exceptions. If caught, thread is closed down/deleted and member may be temp/perma banned from Discord, depending on the situation.))

5. Harassment of any sort will NOT be tolerated.
((Staff will investigate in an unbiased manner, and discuss in a council fashion. Judgement varies case by case, and is final.))

6. Loli/Shota is NOT allowed (this includes images/video/writing/linking).
What is BlueMoon's Definition of Loli/Shota?
BlueMoon's Definition of Loli/Shota is anything (yes, anything) younger than 15 that is pre-pubescent and also looks pre-pubescent (again, use common sense here, we get that some people prefer smaller breasts to larger, etc etc).

((Any found will be immediately deleted by staff, and then a PM sent to the offender. Punishment will vary depending on situation, and if a repeat offender, up to and including a ban.))

7. Bestiality images/video/linking is NOT allowed on site.
((See consequence for #6.))

8. A single entity is allowed up to FIVE accounts on site. If you are found to have more, the more recent will be banned.
((When caught, most recently additional accounts banned. Member may be contacted by staff if necessary.))

9. All NSFW graphics need to either be behind an appropriately labeled spoiler tag or have their thread labeled NSFW.
((If a member is found to have NSFW graphics without a proper NSFW tag/label, a warning prompt will be issued about potential temp ban if they do not cooperate. If member ignores the warning and does not place up the tags/labels in a timely fashion, temp ban for one week.))

10. All avatars and signatures MUST be SFW and/or refrain from full nudity.
However the gist of what is acceptable vs not is this:
No female breasts/nipples
No genitalia
Bare backside is fine so long as the cheeks are NOT spread such that the anus is revealed
Nothing tasteless/pornographic
If staff deems it NSFW, it is NSFW. The end.

((Avatar/sig will be deleted and member contacted. Repeat offenders get a one week temp ban.))

11. No self nudes.
((See consequence for #10.))

12. Do NOT post a picture of another and claim they are you.
((If found, verbal warning (staff’s discretion if warning is public or private) will be given and picture deleted. Repeat offenders get a one week temp ban.))

13. Do NOT post pictures of another without their permission (obvious exceptions are published images of known celebrities) nor post/give out identifying information of another site member.
((See consequence for #12.))

14. Members are allowed TWO request threads per request section (ie, Males, Females, Uncategorized Other). Bumping is allowed ONCE EVERY 24 HOURS.
((Over bumps get deleted and documented, member must wait 24 hours after staff sends their message to bump again. Staff will tell you when you can next bump in their message. 3x and they lose RT privileges for 7 full days. 4th warning is one week temp ban. Any repeat after that is a ban. Staff reserves the right to use unbiased judgement on truly accidental overbumps.))

15. Members may only post in their own request threads.
((See consequence for #14))

16. No spamming. Not on threads, not in PMs.
((Spam will be deleted. If bot or junk spammer, delete spam account. If a member is spamming, they will be contacted. Repeat member spammers receive a one week temp ban. If they continue after that, perma-ban. Staff reserves the right to use unbiased judgment on whether spam was malicious or accidental.))

17. No soliciting. If you want to advertise something, please speak to either darkangel76 or Vekseid.
((Solicitation deleted, and member contacted. Repeat offenders get a one week temp ban or more, with staff judgement prevailing.))

18. Please go here to read up on our Chat Rules and find the link to our Discord Server.

19. Plagiarism (includes writing and art) will not be tolerated.
((Plagiarized work will be removed, and one week temp ban for offending member. Repeat offenders, staff judgement prevails whether it should be a perma-ban))

20. Keep the negativity and hostility off the boards!
((Negative posts or threads will be removed and/or closed down and the member(s) contacted. If negativity persists, one week temp ban. Repeat offenders, ban. Staff judgment on what is negative is final!))

21. If members see a problem on the boards or on Discord or are informed of one via a fellow member on site, either hit the report button or seek assistance from a global mod (GREEN name) or an administrator (RED name). Do NOT play mod.
((Staff will contact and correct the member if this is done publicly on thread and/or in Discord. Staff reserves the right to use unbiased judgment in all such cases on a case by case basis. May only require verbal warnings, may require temp ban or ban.))

22. Do NOT necro threads. Introduction threads are considered ‘dead’ after one week, most other threads are considered ‘dead’ after one month. Unless you have something interesting to add to get conversation truly going again…refrain. You can always start up a new thread.
((Staff will contact member and reserves the right to use unbiased judgment on whether a warning or harsher consequence is needed for such actions)).

23. All posts to BlueMoon Academy are modded. They must go through an approval process before posted. If your post does not appear after one week, feel free to inquire. It is possible it was determined inappropriate.

24. BlueMoon Roleplaying has an appeal policy for all bans (jailbait, temp, permanent, Discord server, etc). Anyone banned, is able to contact the site via webmaster@bluemoonroleplaying.com and may state their case. We ask that all final decisions are respected regardless of outcome.

25. GOLDEN RULE: DON’T BE AN ASSHOLE (see above Guidelines VI and VII for more details... >.>)!
