Rules and Guidelines

1. No spamming.
2. No flaming.
3. No racism or otherwise prejudice actions. This includes posts, pictures, etc.
4. No harassing other members, moderators, etc.
5. Do not double post or post multiple times in a row.
6. Do not flood the forums by posting tons of times in a row(usually pages long). This includes in the Spam Kingdom. Flooding will get you a much longer ban than multi-posting.
7. No linking to sexually explicit websites or posting sexual explicit material. Do not post pornographic (including hentai) images or use them in your avatar/signature. Nudity, sexual activity, or an inappropriate level of bared skin is not allowed. Any text, transcript, or writing containing explicit sexual activity or sexual in context are prohibited as well.
8. Do not link to warez, cracked software, torrents, or make any illegal transactions that contribute to piracy on the forums.
9. No excessive swearing/cussing.
10. Do not interfere with special events such as tournaments or other competitions. See the definitions section for more details.
11. No account scamming. Believe us, we will catch you. If you have been scammed, immediately PM a moderator with any information/proof that you have. We will try to catch the scammer and may get your account back. However, if you have just lost your password, we cannot help you.
12. Do not impersonate a member, a moderator, or any other member of the staff.
13. Using somebody else's original avatar or signature, even if edited slightly, is not allowed.
14. Do not publicly discuss the moderators or their actions unless given permission to do so.
15. All technical support questions go in the Soukyoku Hill section. DO NOT PM THE ADMINS ABOUT IT!
16. Advertising or promoting other websites/services as a whole is not allowed.
17. Absolutely no back seat modding. It is just plain annoying and will not be tolerated. We moderators can do our jobs just fine without members acting like they have authority.
18. Do not evade your bans. If you do ban evade you will be permanently banned. If you wish to discuss your ban please feel free to do so with the moderator via private message.
19. Do not share classified information! If you know a secret, keep it to yourself. We don't need information to leak and spread to everyone. This goes for the moderators too!
20. Do not cause unnecessary drama. If you are causing a problem and refuse to stop when asked by the moderators, your posts will be considered spam. (see definition section for more information on drama).
21. No publicly trading accounts
22. Do not post text in a different language than the section is.
23. Do not quote posts without adding your own information (This is considered spam and will get you warned).
24. Under no circumstance are you allowed to discuss race.

Also do note: Breaking the rules purposely on an alt account can result in an immediate ban without warning, and it can affect your main account too.

Important Definitions/Interpretations

In this section, certain words and phrases used throughout the rules will be defined and/or interpreted. This is so there is no confusion over what is meant by a certain rule and so the rules cannot be argued.

Spam: A message and/or topic that is pointless, off-topic, or otherwise lacks content that adds to the discussion. Topics with misleading titles are also considered spam, regardless of the message content.

Double Posting: Posting twice or more times in a row without other people's posts in between. If you want to add something, you should use the edit button.

Flooding: Intentionally posting many times in a short period of time with no useful purpose and an intent to disrupt the forums to the extent that it can no longer be considered double posting. Generally, four or more posts in a row is considered flooding.

Flaming: Any posts meant to offend or hurt any other member in a manner which is offensive and/or insulting. Even calling someone a n00b is considered light flaming.

Harassment: Constantly nagging someone with offensive or negative messages in an attempt to make them feel unhappy or annoyed.

Warez: Illegally copied software that is often associated with pirating.

Ripping: Taking someone else's original artwork, such as signatures and avatars, and claiming them as your own. Even if you slightly edit the image, it is still considered ripped.

Scamming: Attempting to trick or persuade somebody in handing over the password to their account.

Impersonation: Replicating someone's profile and/or name in order to appear to be that person. This also pertains to falsely claiming to be a Moderator/Admin of any "Naruto-Arena" project to try and trick the population.

Event Interference: Performing actions with the intent of causing disruption in events. There are several ways you can commit event interference. The ways to commit event interference are: Joining an event without the intent of participating, searching to private battle a tournament participant without being in the tournament, and spamming or flooding in event threads.

Back Seat Modding: Warning members and/or "punishing" them as if you are a moderator when you aren't actually a moderator. The real moderators can handle their jobs just fine without fakes running around.

Ban Evading: Accessing the forums while you are banned, which usually makes things worse because it results in a permanent IP ban.

Classified Information: Any information that is meant to be kept secret from normal members.

Drama: Immature behavior that causes a disruption on the forums and usually causes members to fight among themselves. Please, respect each other and DO NOT CAUSE DRAMA!

Trolling: This has multiple meanings; basically, trolling is when you create a topic or post where you intentionally try to get a negative reaction from others, whether it be spam or drama.

Troll Accounts: Accounts/alt accounts that were made for the sole purpose of spamming, trolling, or any other violation of the rules, as an attempt to avoid getting in trouble on their real account. Which doesn't work because these accounts are normally permanently IP-banned.
