    The main rule is obviously to have fun, but always according to the other rules. The OPForum team wants to make this forum a friendly place, so please, read the above rules and fulfil them:

    1a. Quantity is not signal of quality. That said, don't make useless posts that are only considered SPAM.

    1b. Multiposting - Multiposting is discouraged as it is considered as an attempt to raise post count (spam), and it also looks untidy. Quoting multiple posts is possible on both desktop and mobile so you can have multiple discussions at once. If you spot multiple posts, please report them to a moderator so they can be merged. For newer members there will be some understanding, but if we see repeat offenders we’ll give you a friendly nudge not to do it. However, multiposting is okay in the Anime Series/Manga Series sections, where weekly chapter/episode discussions take place in the same thread. If a new chapter/episode comes out, you are allowed to bump the thread even if you were the most recent person to post in it.

    2. No advertising. There is only one thread where you can advertise your website, it's in the general lounge. Here is the link.

    3. Good grammar. You don't have to post with an extremely good grammar, but always try to make your post as clear as possible.

    4. When you copy something from another website, like a new theory for example, put the source link in the end of the post. This way you are posting something useful and at the same time you are valorizing the work of the person that wrote the original.

    5. You can't have more than one account. Why would you need more than one account? We have tools to find double accounts, and we will ban them. If you have a brother that would like to register in our forum, for example, and will share your IP address, send a Private Message to the administrators @Marco Polo and @sweetjacky .

    6. No porn. We also don't tolerate images that could be considered offensive or that show intimate parts. The members that don't follow this rule will be banned.

    7. The following are the rules to be followed when using signature.

    We have had some requests to limit the dimensions of signatures, so here they are... New signature rules!

    Images

    Maximum width: 520 px
    Maximum height: 250 px
    Maximum filesize: 1 mb
    Maximum number of images: 1 (2 with the spoiler tag, but it's OK to use 2 images outside the spoiler tag if one of them is like an icon or a userbar)

    Here is an example of a signature with the maximum dimensions: (kindly provided by @"RoronoaZoro")

    [​IMG]

    Signature size

    Maximum height (images + text): 400 px

    You can use the spoiler tag if your signature exceeds this height, but please don't exceed the 700 px mark.
    Code:
    [spoiler] spoiler [/spoiler]
    These values are not definitive and might change in the future.

    Because I’ve been seeing it quite a bit recently, I think I’ll make this into a rule.

    Also updating the rules to cover the admin change.
