PostSubject: Some Update to Site Rules   7th January 2018, 3:38 pm

Well, every site has rules. So, this one is no different but realize this, as a member on this site, you are responsible for following these rules and the terms of service given by Forumotion. As this site's staff, we are responsible for upholding these regulations. Breaking of these rules can result in a multitude of punishments [each differing in severity depending on the staff member, the number of offenses made, and the proof given] leading up to banishment from the site. [Site rules will continually be updated as seen fit and members are always responsible for the updated rules as well.]

Forum Rules

So, leading this up is rule number one.

1.) Harassment - Sometimes hazing a new person, or belittling a mistake happens, perhaps someone missed an attack, and they got upset, or rage quit and came back. Maybe someone had a huge ego and you punctured it a little. These this can/do occur, if you want "real" talk, I am speaking about "talking shit" to someone. However there is a point where it crosses a line, a few good liners are one thing, but harassing someone, due to an action, personality etc etc for extended periods of time, or in general pushing the boundaries too far is not tolerated. Throwing around slurs, trolling or bashing someone is not acceptable, and we ask all members respect it, keep it out of the site, out of the site discord, and off of PM's and Discord Convo's.

2.) Positive Attitudes - We encourage positive attitudes, and will do our best to have them ourselves, we want to be here, and we hope you want to be here. Having a bad day, and taking it out on the site or its members is not appropriate. Aggressive talk, constant negative comments like "The site will die" or "So and so is a horrible staffer/member" is not warranted or acceptable. Please take a breather, and come back later.

3.) Uplifting Activity - Members are to be active, mainly on the site through rping with their characters. Now, we know some days you don't feel like it, and sometimes you get busy. What we do not want to see, are members sitting on the discord/chat and just laminating on what/who/where is going to happen to who/what/where and why this or that. If we start to notice that this happens, we will take away the site chat, and eventually restrict the discord chats for those are have actively made a post.

4.) Spamming, or posting multiple times in a topic one after another on a forum or in the chatbox, is frowned against. Sometimes it is funny, sometimes it is not, and sometimes it is plain annoying. A few moments of it is occasionally fine, when it goes on for longer than 20-30 seconds, please stop.

5.) Advertising is not allowed on the forum without the Administration's permission. The process for this includes us looking at your site and deciding whether or not it seems relevant to our site's interest. If we agree that it is, we will propose affiliation which is the only instance under which your site can be advertised on ours.

6.) Trolling - It will happen, either in a some sort of organized form, or with a campaign. We don't allow it, we ask that everyone, staff on down, respect each other.

7.) Spirit - Here at Legacies Reborn as staff we try our best to follow the spirit of rules and regulations. We won't always succeed but we will do our best, and as such sometimes things that are unreasonable, irrational or down right hurtful towards the site will be removed or told to change. We find that such things often cause more problems than effectively dealing with them, and they will be asked to be removed, or removed by force. Staff has the final say

RP Rules

1.)Posting Order and Consistency - It is important with any thread that a posting order be maintained, and it be consistent through out. Please be mindful and only post when it is your turn.

2.)Post Reads - The is another important aspect, and it is a shame to even have to bring this up. Some among the world like to be sneaky, using under handed and downright shameful posting manipulations. Posting should be above 10 font, in English, reading left to right, and top to bottom. Reversing your post, using mirror backwards posting techniques, or hiding words is not allowed. Finally, your post must have start and end point going from top to bottom. Attempting to write your post and then say "everything happened in reverse" is not allowed.

3.)Sequential Actions - If you are posting sequential actions in your post, or any actions really at all, they must follow a logical time line, what you did first, to what you did last. No trying to obscenely confuse others, by having your 5th action followed by your 3rd, then 1st, then 4th, then 2nd.

4.) No [Yes, none] Suicide. If you commit suicide, there will be punishment. No loopholing the rule either.

5.) Meta Knowledge - Using knowledge that your character does not possess. We try and build our stories from the ground up, and some people will have more experience than others due to length of time. But when starting out, your character does not possess knowledge of things, techniques, people they have never met, nor heard about. No amount of "back story" injection will compensate for that.

Furthermore, "instinctively" knowing something is going on without the proper skill, such as being in a thread, and then after that thread has started a bijuu invades another village, your character randomly deciding it would be a great time to visit, does not compute at all. However, there may be some old legacies that can help a character out in times like this.

6.)Auto Hitting/God Modding - Just don't do it, if you need a definition go look it up. Don't control other people's characters, period, EVEN if they give you permission. Obvious exceptions apply, but those are pretty rare and can be discussed with staff individually.

7.) Intervening - Intercepting another person is possible on our site, allowing you to basically interfer with their sequence of events, by doing your own. There are a few rules, the first topic is intercepting someone who is leaving a topic. It can only be done if you are already present, it cannot be done on your own entrance post, nor on your own exit post. Simply, you cannot join a thread to stop someone from exiting, nor can you exit a thread while also stopping someone from exiting.
8.) Exiting on an attack - Posting an exit, along with an attack, is not allowed. Ninja leave in smokescreens or the like, they do not hurl a javelin of lightning to run away. Posting an attack in an exit post is not allowed.

9.) Open ended posts - Ending a post or such with "forming hand-signs" "readying a counter" without indication as to what might occur, is not allowed. Forming what hand-signs? What type of chakra are you gathering? A counter to which move? Blanket stating is too open ended, and can warrant a near infinite response

10.)10 Million Tactics - Sometimes during combat, or even a social occasion, we see so many "what if's" or "just in case" that is become ridiculous. Preparing for an assault is one thing. Adding on this meta-knowledge aspect is not. Such as "If my opponent used a raiton move" "if he instead used a suiton move" or "if instead of raiton or suiton, he used Katon/Fuuton" you get the idea. Its one thing to ready yourself, its another to list of 10 things that my happen, and be ready for them all.

Chat Box Rules

The 1 and only Rule.) Listen to the Chat Moderators. Failing to cooperate will get you banned. Offenses carried out in the chatbox will not affect your participation on the forum unless situations call for it. Remember, the chatbox is a privilege.

We are glad to have you as a member and hope that you have fun while you are here.
[Introductions!]
[Staff Applications]
[Character Creation]
[Discussion Forum]


*Proof- This means to print screen offenses. This is the best proof that you can show us in order for us to make easier rulings that are the fairest.

Combat Rules

I am sure everyone knows the basics, such as no meta game, no god mod, no auto hitting and no controlling your opponents characters. Getting caught doing any of these may get your post voided, so dun even try.

Also, in some cases your opponent may be vague about something, only if necessary you can fill these gaps as long as you do not do something that completely changes what your foe did (Example: yer foe shoots a fireball at you, not saying how big it is or anything, just mentioning the jutsu. If you say that its really tiny, that's gonna get voided, but if you just describe it like it had been shown in the manga/anime, that's okay.)

Communicate with the people who are in your topic through PMs to clear any confusion.

Staff Judgement

Staff Judgement - If staff are called into a thread to review, they are to review fairly and judiciously, within the rules of the site. In governing those rules, staff will look at the entire picture, not just the post in question or the action, but the character, the players involved, the situation and the entire thread or previous threads if necessary. What we do not want to have happen is have 1 or 2 individuals always having to call in staff due to questionable practices, such things create a pattern of behavior we strive not to have. When staff is called, always expect the worse, because staff will take everything into consideration. A fresh young chicken magically knowing where the solar plexus is with no training, is a no go. Coming into a fight, and seeing every post being kill shot after kill shot after kill shot, is not what we want. We want a story, and this goes back to your character as a person, if you are out to slay as many people as possible, may I suggest Call of Duty or some game like it. If staff sees the same problems from the same members over and over again, there will be a serious discussion about that players commitment to bringing the story to life.

Claiming a Hit

Claiming a hit - This is perhaps the most controversial part of fighting, most people think you should always ask to successfully attack another person. Here is not the case, if you fail to post within 48 hours, a hit can be claimed. A hit can also be claimed if a person failed to respond to an attack, however you most notify staff of this hit claim. Staff will allow the hit, provided it wasn't fatal. If it was a fatal hit (accordingly to the power rating) staff will PM the member and said they have gotten hit, and have an additional 24 hours to respond with severe damage "life threatening" damage, if they fail the hit is successful and the person is killed.

You cannot claim a hit when it is not your turn, so if Person A fails to respond to an attack, and you are Person C, you cannot jump ahead and claim the hit before Person B posts.

Finally, the damage dealt is as should be described and never exaggerated, if it is, the attack will turn to a glancing blow because you should know better. If it was a simple strike, or a basic weapon used, staff has the right to interject and take a look, we don't want that Kunai you threw at your opponents arm to suddenly be at their head.

"Vague Manipulation"

Vague Manipulation - Vague Manipulation is allowed, so long as it does not fall under controlling another character or their actions. This includes making a character do something, for example, a player walks on ice, you cannot vague manipulate that to say they slipped and fell. A ninja holds a kunai, cannot say that they are holding it the wrong way and cut up their hand. One can use it to say how things happen in relation to a character, such as Naruto lefts the shuriken fly from his hand, one could say "from his left hand", but one couldn't say, "from his left hand to his face, killing him" or "from his left hand the shuriken dropped to the ground with no force behind it".

Editing and Place Holders

Editing - Editing post is allowed up until someone posts after that, any time after that and the post is automatically void, even for misspellings. You may also only edit up to 48 hours after you post. Finally, you may not edit in attacks or hit claims into your post, period, regardless of who agreed or disagreed.

Place Holder Posts or "anti editing posts" - You can post a place holder, however it does not stop someone from editing, you can quote if you like as well, until the next person makes their post, editing is allowed. If it is not your turn to post, do not put place holders.

"Death by Paper Cut"
"Timely Deaths" - These are deaths that do not occur outright, so don't act as if they do. Drowning, burning, being poisoned, bleeding out, unless clearly stating happens in under 4 posts, takes 4 post to kill someone. There is some wiggle room on most, but never drowning, it always takes 4 posts to happen.

No attacking in the first post when you enter a thread. This is to prevent people from sneaking on someone and launching an attack that is impossible to dodge. This is standard in T1 fights.

Timely death is redundant imo and making rules for it will do more harm than good. 4 posts can be 1000 years and it can be 0.1 seconds.

That's not going to stop someone from launching an impossible to dodge attack lol. A rule like this also limits the type of preparatory hypothetical actions people can make as they wouldnt be allowed state that "they would perform this specific attack as a method of defending themselves should this specific thing happen.", even if such a preparation would make in character sense.I would also assume that if this rule were to be put in place, then people would at least be able to prepare defensive and supplementary techniques during their entrance posts.

It's going to stop them from launching an impossible to dodge attack of that kind, mind you, which was fairly common. I remember Mack using it a couple of times and I've seen it on other forums.

Preparation =/= Attack

Honestly i think its only courtesy that all participants are disallowed to attack on the entrance post. Granted some exceptions would apply like if someone were attacking a village, an issue that should be handled situationally anyway. Im for no attacks on initial post. If anything it gives all involved a fair shot to not die immediately upon posting in a fight. Ive seen it. Its not tasteful and its not even remotely close to a good read (i like reading fights).
