FORUM BEHAVIOUR.

DIVERSITY:
Everybody is different in this environment that is considered a family or a home to some. We cannot force you all to accept other people's views or opinions but we do ask that you tolerate them. If you are going to openly express hate and discrimination against another person it is advised that you take your business elsewhere or keep it to yourself. Ageism, racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia or any other form of discrimination that is considered offensive will not be tolerated. Nobody shall be discriminated against because of their race, age, gender, religion or orientation. Humorous insults may be expressed from member to member on occasion which could be considered an offense from an outside party, if this is the case please express your discomfort to the parties before taking it up with an administrator if you did not receive the desired response.

RESPECT:
Treat others as you want them to treat you, because what goes around comes around. If you are going to be obnoxious, rude, aggressive and excessively arrogant and then ask why you are no respected, then it should be apparent that it is because you are not respecting others yourself. If a staff member believes you are unwelcoming towards new members, then it is you who is truly unwelcome. To ensure you don't accidentally disrespect somebody; try to avoid topics such as religion, suicide, terminal illness, sexual tendencies, politics and anything else that could upset a fellow member.

RESPECT STAFF:
An obvious extension to the rule displayed above. First and foremost, the staff are not here to hold you down, they are here to get you approved as quickly as possible to start your roleplaying experience, therefore they do not appreciate being yelled at for doing their jobs by reviewing your applications to help get you through the approval process. Every administrator and moderator sacrifices their own free time to make sure everything runs smoothly. Do not argue with a staff member because their word will usually be final, if you truly have an issue take it up with an administrator but watch your approach because they will not tolerate you badmouthing their teammates and have the right to deny your plea for that reason alone. Do not harass any staff member to check any of your applications or anything to that matter, ask once maybe twice; that is all. Also, if you are not a staff member, do not post on another members application even if it was requested this is insulting to the staff since it is their job to do so, not yours. In the end, administrators have the final say on everything on the forum, do not try to fight with them especially in regards to the rules. Every time you think to contradict an administrator on the rules, remember who created them.

PLAGIARISM:
One of our strictest rules and probably the one taken the most seriously. Plagiarism can be summarized as the act of presenting another's work or ideas as their own. The open database items may be open to members but this only applies to Ultimate Shinobi and therefore cannot be used on sites except our own unless permission has been granted from the creator. All canon created jutsu on the site are property of Naruto and its creator Masashi Kishimoto, however these will all most likely be direct write-ups from the staff based on the canon technique to fit a roleplaying involvement therefore should not be used outside of Ultimate Shinobi as well. Strict penalties apply if this rule is broken, it could actually be considered a criminal offense; capable of a lawsuit and will ruin your reputation among naruto roleplayers and be reported to Forumotion.

CREATIVITY:
Certain aspects of the Naruto series has been adapted into Ultimate Shinobi, the characters themselves are not a part of them however and there is not to be any links to them, any relation, reference or creation of characters from the Naruto series. Overall, you shouldn't be creating any canon character from any show. Creativity is key, don't be slack - that's not fair on the staff members that have to moderate your applications.

MATURITY:
Now this rule is not implying you cannot act immature in a playful manor, immaturity of that sort is something that can be consistent in a variety of ways. However, if you are capable of browsing the internet, register to the site and even roleplay at our standards, then you have the ability to act mature. Unnecessary disputes shouldn't even begin to spur, they shouldn't occur, period. Being excessively inappropriate would be something we wouldn't like to see. This includes such things as offensive or confusing usernames, an example of a confusing username would be having the '@' symbol which is recognized in the chatbox as a symbol of authority. Also the use of symbols that will prevent you from being banned. Spam would also fall under this rule, there will be a designated area for Forum Games, but other than that Spam will not be permitted, this should include double posting which should be avoided at all costs. This should be considering as an easily understood rule, don't do something that will warrant us to ban you, and you won't really be breaking it.

LANGUAGE:
First and foremost, we are obviously based around the English language, if you come from a location where you fail to speak English, unless you have an impeccable translation program then this might not be the place for you. If English isn't your first language and you show potential to actually become what we would consider a literate English Naruto roleplayer then we will be patient with you. Unless you are quite literate with English, we would advise you to look for a forum that will fit your standards better or pick up English quickly, haha. In regards to indecent language, we like to consider ourselves as a mature member base, which means in character we can tolerate some controlled foul language, however in regards to insulting a member to belittle them with an aggressive nature or intention, this isn't permitted and it would be best to overall avoid such words in the chatbox, though we are aware that it will happen, just don't overdo it.

IMAGERY:
Large images are something that can effect the whole forum layout believe it or not, they are capable of stretching pages, this includes signatures, avatars and just generally any picture posted. If an image is overly big in a topic please restrain it with a spoiler or an image resizing code. Avatar sizes are recommend to be 100x100, nice neat and presentable. Signatures should be at maximum 550x150, anything exceeding this can be removed by the staff without hesitation or warning. We promote all members to have a signature and avatar however, we think they look pretty and promote artist skill.

Ultimate Shinobi's Rules Vide
PostSubject: Re: Ultimate Shinobi's Rules Ultimate Shinobi's Rules EmptyMon 21 Mar 2011, 3:55 pm

THE GUIDELINES.

APPLICATIONS:
Simple enough to understand, all the applications templates were carefully constructed by the staff and for this reason we do not appreciate people altering it or it's coding to make it more their style or add something they believe should be in there. If you are caught doing this you will not be approved until it is returned to the proper format we have provided you, just let it be it won't be the end of the world. This, however, does not mean that customization is not, at all, allowed, so long as the core content is not disturbed.

COMBAT:
This time around, proper steps have been taken to ensure combat is balanced and controlled, without limiting much creativity. Some of you will not be used to it but we promise you it will be as simple as we can make it to ensure everything is both fair and fun, for a in depth look at Ultimate Shinobi's combat rules and chakra system click HERE.

THREADS:
All posts must be done in third person. All roleplaying threads are open unless expressed otherwise. As for the amount of threads permitted, we usually will not permit more than five threads. Contacting an Administrator and requesting to be able to participate in more than five topics at once may be a possibility pending their verdict. However locations should be brought into picture, if you are in a mission in a distant country than you shouldn't be having a social thread back home. The time of these threads is key as well, you obviously cannot be in two or three places at once so be logical when it comes to when the thread is occurring in your characters storyline.

PRIVATE TOPICS:
While we understand that people don't want others always inviting themselves into their personal plot topics, there are limits on where you can have private topics. When outside of your safe zone(s), you cannot tag your threads as private. At the same time, if you are in your safe zone but wish to roleplay with somebody that is outside their own safe zone, you cannot keep the thread private, either. For example, if you're a Kumo ninja RPing with a nukenin, your thread cannot be marked [P] because the nuke is outside of their safe zone. Designated safe zones are one's own village (or the designated safe areas for nukenin), but not the country (if you're attacked while in your own country, help is never far away).

POSTS:
All role-plays should firstly have a posting order that dedicates who may post when. This order is usually established by the topic creator and should be followed throughout the entire topic unless it is required to be broken. Double posting should not occur in a role-playing thread unless you're in a solo topic by yourself. Out of character (OOC) messages should be kept to a minimum. Private messaging is available for more than one reason and that can be one of them. Finally, the required word count per post is 300 words. This is a bare minimum and we expect you all to strive to surpass with ease. We find it best if you write your role-plays in paragraphs of five to seven or eight sentences as opposed to just a few lines each, we want your posts to look as clean as possible and stretching them out does not achieve that.

SUICIDE AND PLANNED DEATHS:
Death is something that every ninja will eventually face, but a lot of people tend to take the idea of Suicide for granted. Now strictly speaking about suicide for a moment, this would go against everything a ninja stands for but it is usually done in an unreasonable fashion. When it comes to committing suicide your death needs to be reviewed in the Evaluations Section to ensure that it is well within reason before having the death approved. Moderators should be looking at how you killed the character off, your characters personality and how well it was written to decide whether or not your topic is acceptable. Suicide is portrayed as the taking of ones own life due to emotional instability, this means if the personality displayed on your application isn't fitting for such a scenario you better have had some sort of major personality development in character to warrant a suicide. Moving on to planned deaths, although they aren't classified as suicides in character, out of character is a whole different ball game. If you're setting up a fight or spar with somebody where the end result has been predetermined and your character is killed then this is the exact meaning of a planned death and also requires evaluation before being approved. If a higher ranked character kills off their ninja they shouldn't expect to receive automatic permission to resume their previous high ranking, although in some cases this rule can be bypassed if administrators are in agreement. Otherwise, when you kill of a character, your next character should be C-rank.

DEATHS:
In regards to threads where death may play a factor members should realize that failure to post in a thread where your character is in a potentially dangerous or fatal situation an lead to your character being declared dead if it is left for an extended time without a valid excuse. This is to be decided by the administration team and whether or not any of the attacks in the thread at the time could be seen as difficult to dodge which could result in an involuntary character death. Please note that although planned deaths or suicides are not supported or advised by the staff they are permitted if it is done correctly. To ensure that these kinds of topics stay at a bare minimum though we implore that all members thoroughly consider what kind of character they will enjoy for the long run before creating one because being a repeat offender of suicides or planned deaths may result in an eventual form of punishment because its not a topic to be taken lightly, so please do not treat is as such.

SIGNATURE SHEET:
Every approved member is expected to have a link to their character application and account in their signature. This benefits not only the staff when it comes to finding your application and updating it, but your fellow member base when wishing to easily locate your application. This is mandatory, not optional, however there are a few ways to go about it, our favourite way would be a neat and stylish signature for your character which would link us to your application but simplicity works.

CHATBOX LAW.

PROFANITY:
You can easily refer to the Forum Behavior rule regarding Language to understand what the idea of this rule would be, it will be tolerated but only to an extent, all in all it should be avoided. Profane behavior is an extension that is not limited to profane language, anything over the top that would be considered an aggressive insult or rude behavior should be avoided.

FONTS:
Some people alter their fonts, sizes and colours in the chatbox, this is permitted but to an extent. Don't make something unreadable, be appropriate with your fonts and colours, be considerate. Not everybody's eyes may be as focused as you and some people actually suffer from colourblindness and have trouble distinguishing the difference certain shades. As for size, we would not recommend anything bigger than the standard size you aren't permitted to go beyond a size 9.

ADVERTISING:
Advertising is a privilege, and I don't just say that on Ultimate Shinobi. If you are permitted to freely promote your site on theirs then the least you can do is follow their rules. There is an advertising board on Ultimate Shinobi, and that's the only place you should be advertising. The chatbox and private messages are not the place for this.

EMPATHY:
Recognize that what you are comfortable with expressing and talking about, may not comfort the people around you. If you look back to the Forum Behavior rule regarding Respect you will see to requests that everybody tries to avoid topics such as religion, suicide, terminal illness, sexual tendencies, politics and anything else that could upset a fellow member. People should always be considerate towards another persons feelings and understand them to an extent. If somebody asks that you change the topic or refrain from discussing a specific topic (wthin reason) then please be considerate.

ACCOUNTABILITY:
You are responsible and liable for all your actions. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a trial that may result in your banning. This could be as small as a sentence or as big as impersonating an administrator, moderator or any member.
