By Command of the mighty Spode, you shall obey these commands or see yourself banished from SporeBase forums!

1. No spamming.
Do not post multiple times in a row, unless it is needed. Try to avoid pointless posts outside of Quick Threads. Being, and remaining, completely off-topic, with the exception of the Freedom Thread and Illogical Reasoning topics, is not allowed. However, getting a little off-topic is fine if you return to the original topic somewhere in your post.

2. Be respectful to everybody
This is a community site, so be nice to each other!
This includes starting threads to insult someone.

3. No Pornography.
This will get you a permanent ban with no warnings!

4. No sharing of illegal files or file sharing sites.
This is also prohibited on the Shoutbox!
Clarification: ROM hacks are legal under fair use law, as they constitute a mod and aren't simply a free download of the base game. However, we ask that you do not post dowloads for ROM hacks here. However, you are free to discuss and share your creative project. Unmodified ROMs are what are strictly forbidden in discussion as well.

5. No multiple accounts, unless you have a legitimate reason and are given permission by the staff. Ask first!

6. Make your topics descriptive.
Topics like "Hack" will be removed.

7. No posting of new topics/questions in someone else’s thread.
Make your own topic for this.

8. Follow topic rules!
Respect the rules that the founder of a topic puts in place!

GO TO HERE TO LEARN WHY: http://www.sporebase.com/forum/index.php?topic=533.0
If you have added plants, go here to learn how to remove them: http://www.sporebase.com/forum/index.php?topic=541.0

10. Try not to evade the swear filter.
This is a game that is for all ages!

11. No advertising.

12. No trolling.
Trolling is the act of deliberately trying to provoke users into flaming. It's highly detrimental to our status as a community, and we, the staff, will not hesitate to act if any member is caught doing so.

13. Avoid using avatars/display pictures that contain:
-Sexual themes and/or nudity
-Racist, sexist or otherwise inappropriate material
-Rapidly flashing colours, or any other fast content that may induce sickness or a seizure
-Material that insults another member of the Sporebase community

If you do happen to have an avatar like so and you fail to change it, a private message will be sent to you, asking you to change it. Continuing to have an avatar that falls under one of those criteria after multiple warnings may result with the inability to use an avatar.
If you wish to use a certain avatar, but you do not know if it falls under one of the criteria listed above, then PM an admin or global moderator with the link, and we will decide if it can be used or not.

If you do not like these rules, then do not sign up or post. This is a friendly community and post counts do not count for anything. Having the most posts does not mean you are going to be a moderator or anything of the sort, in fact if you have been spamming to get the count, it will hurt your standing in the community.

On the subject of additional rules:
The staff may agree upon and add new rules at any time, if new rules are needed. More likely than not, these rules will be discussed on the forum, but it would be a good idea to keep this page bookmarked so you can check the rules to make sure you're obeying them.
