    Etiquette is just as the term implies. These are not intended to be taken as "rules", but "guidelines" in which we provide in an effort to keep the site more in-line with our view of direction. Failure to follow our forum etiquette will not usually result in any form of punishment, except in some extreme cases where it is deemed necessary. However, be advised that any content which fails to abide by our etiquette IS subject to moderation by staff members at their discretion.

    Posting Etiquette of XPOFF Forums


    1. Post in the correct category.

    2. Do not post personal information that isn't yours. Privacy is to be respected here. This includes any passwords, logins or anything else which could be considered private.

    3. Do not post adult images, adult links, or other adult content which would be considered inappropriate for the general user-base. Keep this material in The Royal Lounge. No direct links to infected downloads in posts or profiles. Profiles and posts should not contain special characters which break or alter the site's layout.

    4. Users should try to avoid double-posting. That's when you post one after another instead of editing your original post. Instead, users should edit their original post. Double posts will be merged. Depending on the type of thread, the occasional “bump” may be acceptable.

    5. Do not cross post. That's when you repeat a post in multiple threads or categories.

    6. Do not ban evade. If you've been reply banned from a thread, do not post in it with alt-accounts or as Anonymous.

    7. Creating threads that require and/or demand staff attention is prohibited. This includes creating @threads and publicly discussing bans and moderation. Please start a conversation with a staff member instead.

    8. Moderators will try to recognize and leave alone (within reason!) any harmless banter or threads that belong to “bracket culture”. Users participating in banter signal that they find a certain level of sass acceptable. Recognizing “bracket culture” may sometimes be difficult. Moderators will tend to wait for reports in the case of dubious threads, but reserve the right to edit / remove anything they deem too toxic, or move / remove anything they deem too irrelevant to the section. Banter should be mutual, attacking someone in threads intended to be peaceful by the OP may result in the posts being edited or removed.

    9. Threads must have titles relevant to the subject.

    10. When posting content from another site, credit the site; use quotes and link to original content as much as possible.

    11. Threads, posts, and characters in threads and posts that are not contributive, are non-supportive, short and meaningless, and generally incoherent are considered low-quality posts and should be avoided.

    12. Be kind to others. How hard is it to not be an asshole? New Users should never be treated with hostility. Treating new users harshly when ignorance may be the reason for their posts may get the posts edited or removed. Real life threats, telling someone to kill or hurt themselves, and harassment is not allowed. This includes any on-site material such as posts, PMs, and profiles.

    13. Advertising products, platforms or services not sanctioned with XPOFF may potentially result in the removal of content and a ban.

    14. All trade related threads must be in the Trade sub-forum of the respective bracket. Misplaced threads will be moved, and you will be informed of such action (no punishment will be issued). Black-market trades, or any trades which involve real currency, will not be tolerated. Trades of this nature must be kept in the Underbelly.
