Title: IMPORTANT - Diplomacy Forum Rules
Post by: chadz on November 05, 2011, 05:36:06 PM
We don't like the way the diplomacy subforum is being used right now - most threads derail into offtopic within page 1. We want to see more roleplaying and in-character conversation. This doesn't mean hardcore roleplaying, but you should write stuff with your character in mind.

Therefore, we will announce some rules that you should read closely before posting:
- no one liners - if you have something to say, put some effort in it.
- complete sentences, proper grammar - as above, put some effort in it.
- stay on topic
- no links to outside pictures, unless they really fit (ok: strategus map screenshot, not ok: link to 4chan images)
- same for youtube videos - unless you've done one yourself, it's most likely inappropiate.
- refrain from using "modern talk" - comparing a battle with the invasion of the iraq doesn't really help setting the mood
- think of it as people with messages that are getting sent to all of the lords.
- keep it in the timespan - so no talk about last strategus rounds, if possible

Addition: we allow, actually encourage "hostile" talk - drag it to the mud, no problem, but stay "in character" - it's your characters having a fight, not your real persons.

I doth not comprehend thy message; doth thou suggest the conduct of thy peers in the town forum is not adhering to the honourable code of chivalry? Thee doth speakith in a most obscure and barbaric fashion, I glean little from thy cryptic impersonation of the written language!

Can I now bombard Son of Odin with countless notifications in these forums of rule violations?  :mrgreen: I mean, we do have four new moderators now, and Son of Odin has nothing better to do, and is a super duper helpful guy and loves being one  :oops:
