Maple's Landing - A Harvest Moon RP -> 1.1 - Forum Rules

Years ago, the tiny town of Maple’s Landing was an amazing sight. Bustling with activity, it seemed as though the land had received the Harvest Queen’s blessed touch; and it had.

Blissful life took a turn for the worse over a decade ago, when a great Calamity touched the land. Horrified by the events, the people rebuffed their Queen. Saddened by her people's snubbing, she put herself into a deep sleep and the land withered. Now, the town is tasked with saving their homeland before it's too late.

Join the townspeople in their arduous task and enjoy life in the meantime, form bonds, find love and live!

Maple's Landing General Forum Rules

Spamming, Rating, & Content Warnings
  • Spamming means a useless, unwanted or unwarranted reply… such as, one that completely is off-topic from the rest of a thread, repeatedly posting trying to advertise or get something, etc. Since it doesn’t lend itself to anything helpful on the site, we ask that you refrain from spamming.
Bypassing Swear Filters & Posting Inappropriate Content
  • Maple’s Landing is a PG-13 rated board. Linking or posting inappropriate content (material that is overly-violent, sexual, or features excessive swearing) on the board or cbox is against the rules without proper warning or usage of an espoiler code.

  • That being said, there may by certain content that while kept within the PG-13 realm with allusion, light detail, or otherwise explicitly mentioned (whether in dialogue or narration) that could be upsetting and/or inappropriate for some members. Situations dealing with topics like abuse & homophobia/transphobia/etc. or written details like sexual situations or violence therefore should receive a Content Warning (CW).

    • Adding a Content Warning does not mean it may go beyond the rating of the board!
    • CWs should be placed in the topic title as [CW] and in the first post of the thread there should be a brief summary of the content within. For example…

      Topic Title: [CW] Whoa, Nelly!
      Thread body of first post:
      CW: mentions of abuse

    If you have any questions about a thread and whether or not it needs a content warning, feel free to contact a staff member for further help!

  • If you notice a swear word that is uncensored, please alert a staff member as soon as possible so we can add the offending word to the filter!
Trolling, Flaming & Harassment
  • Trolling, flaming, and harassment come down to this; bothering someone to the point where they don't enjoy their time on Maple’s Landing. This is a place meant for everyone to have fun on and pursue their love of roleplaying. It's no fun when someone's being a jerk about it!
’Backseat’ Moderating
  • Backseat Moderating is a case when a regular member begins to ‘moderate’ for the staff without having powers – by reprimanding or instructing members beyond just merely friendly advice and suggestions (which, by the way, is absolutely acceptable!) When it comes to matters of the plot, setting, or general forum etiquette the staff is well equipped to handle it. If you’ve felt that another member is overstepping their bounds in this manner, please alert an administrator immediately to prevent any problems.
Signature & Avatar Sizes
  • Acceptable avatar size: 100 x 100 pixels
  • Acceptable signature size: 400 x 250 pixels, or below
  • Signatures & Avatars shouldn’t be explicit in nature or contain foul language. If your set is found breaking any of the rules, it will be removed.
  • Plagiarism is stealing the works of an author, artist, or even other members. If you are discovered plagiarizing, it is a serious offense. If a member is caught doing this there will be consequences, the severity of which to be determined depending upon how blatant the plagiarism.
  • Please do not make double accounts. If you wish to have a second character, simply make them!
    Breaking this rule will result in a private message from staff to alert the member so they may decide which account they wish to keep so that they may move over what they need from the duplicate account.
  • For organizational purposes, accounts that have been inactive for four months or longer will have their user rank as a Vacationer. Vacationers' profiles and all other information will remain in the archives, and simply if/when they can return Staff will re-establish their ranking and move their profile(s) out of the archives.
  • Please keep all RPG forum or other advertisements to the Advertisement Forum only! If an advertisement is posted anywhere else, it will be deleted (if posted in the cbox) and/or moved to the proper forum immediately.
  • If you have a disagreement with another member (including members of staff), whether it be personal or roleplaying related, please contact that member in a polite and respectable manner. If after this communication you still need assistance, please contact an administrator.
