General Rules

WHEATON'S LAW - "Don't be a dick."

1. This board is rated Mature. Persons under 18 years of age are not allowed to create a profile and participate in these forums.
As such, expect the occasional graphic thread here and there. But please try to refrain from explicit material.

2. Harassment and abusive behavior is absolutely not tolerated. This includes trolling members with racial, sexist, religious, ethnic, sexual or political remarks that can be considered derogatory.
Again should be obvious. Offenders will be given a warning, but depending on the situation, staff reserve the right to ban a writer temporarily/permanently depending on the severity of the offense at any time.

3. Swearing is discouraged.
However, if you must, you are to stick with canon curse words only, please.

4. You will not impersonate another writer.
Doing so could result in being banned.

5. Do not use "alt-padding". This is defined by using additional character or writer accounts under one person's control to support the opinion of the first account in any manner in any out-of-character discussion.
If you wish things you create to be treated fairly, common sense dictates you do the same.

6. All political, religious or social debates on real-life topics on the board are to be confined to private messages, skype, email, or some other form of external messaging service.
As these topics tend to cause arguments, we just avoid them entirely.

7. Prohibited: Committing or Promoting any type of illegal activity including fraud, mailbombing, denial of service attacks, storing and/or housing and/or linking to illegal content, including but not limited to, "warez", "hacking"/"cracking"/"key generators". One may not encourage or enable illegal behavior.

8. Do not offer the services to traffic in illegal drugs, gambling and/or obscene materials.
Common sense is not so common anymore...

9. Additionally, SWDOE Staff reserves the right to terminate your account if at any time you post pornographic pictures and/or nudity of any kind, including but not limited to, adult pornography, Anime/Hentai, child pornography, "adult content" and/or anything else of a sexual nature.
This isn't a porn site people. There are plenty of those elsewhere for that kind of stuff. Again, this rule is in regards pictures.

10. No Plagiarism.
Although elements from other genres (pictures, equipment, characters, etc.) may be brought in, they are to be tweaked/altered to fit into the Star Wars universe. Simple copying and pasting of other genre anything into here will again be crushed with extreme prejudice.

11. Give credit where credit is due.
If you link a picture from another person, website, movie, game, place, etc, make sure you post a link below the picture to give the original owner of the item in question credit. You will also be required to remove that item if the owner complains and wants it removed.

12. Attempts to circumvent any of our security policies or rules will result in immediate banning.
