[Sticky] New Rules (forums)
I'm noticing a lot of bot / spam activity on these forums, so I'm going to just go ahead and put a new rule into place. I'll also be creating a dedicated Community Rules page in the near future that'll contain all of our forum rules and conduct guidelines, so there's no confusion or misunderstandings moving forward.
Starting immediately, we will be removing any posts that contain links to websites or services unrelated to eFiction. This includes links that are contained within user bios, or on user profile pages. If you are presently advertising or otherwise promoting a link to a website or service that's not related to eFiction, or fan fiction in general, then you should expect for this link to be removed.
You are still going to be allowed to advertise your own eFiction-powered websites, or any other community-focused services that may be of some value to eFiction users, such as themes, skins, mods, or scripts. Just don't expect to use our forums as a place to advertise some random betting website, or an unrelated blog about healthcare for pets.
Simply put, if you have posted a link to an outside website or service, and that link is unrelated to eFiction or fan fiction in any way, it will be removed. Depending on the type of link, your user account may also be banned. Seriously, we will not allow gambling, betting, or any other adult-focused or themed website on eFiction.org. It's really that simple.
If you have any questions, feel free to reach out. I'll update this thread once all of the updated rules are live. This could take a while, so please be patient.
