Code of Conduct For X-United
(1.) When joining X-United please use a proper username when creating an account with us. Your username should be no more then 4 to 10 letters long at the least. The reason for this is so it's easier for us to keep track of. Please try to keep it simple. A staff member has the right to delete an account if the username looks like it's some off the wall name. So please keep that in mind when you are creating an account . NOTE: This rule also applies to the X-United Discord Channel as well along with the rules .
(2.) Please respect all members and staff members. Insulting and/or threatening any member regardless of rank is NOT tolerated. Joking is one thing but taking it to the limit is NOT tolerated.
(3.) Single word posts such as 'LOL', 'Yup', etc, WILL be deleted. This is a forum. Not an instant messaging service. Please ensure that your posts are AT LEAST 5-10 words long, and if you're in an RP, your posts MUST be a minimum of 5 sentences.
(4.) Flamers and Trollers will NOT be tolerated. Anyone caught Flaming or Trolling will receive a warning from me. If said Flamer/Troller continues, they're account will be suspended for 2 days. Any other Flaming or Trolling incidents following the 2 day suspension will be met with the Banhammer.
(5.) This forum is for the general discussion/participation of all Fandoms and Role Playing. Please try to keep on topic.
(6.) Links to other sites may be allowed, however; links to adult/pornographic sites will be deleted immediately and depending on how bad the link is you may also be banned automatically. NO EXCEPTIONS!!
(7.) Please keep swearing to a minimum.
Role Playing Rules And Guidelines
(1.) No God Modding! Do NOT try and control another person’s character without their permission. Do NOT do anything beyond a reasonable limit of your character’s power. Do NOT use items, feats, or powers you do not have. This ruins the fun of RPing for everyone. There has been problems with this in the past I know. If a staff member thinks what you posted is God modding you will asked to change it. They may even give a suggestion on how to change it. However if you don’t reedit your post if they tell you to they have the right to delete it. This rule also goes for them to a point because none of us are perfect. If you have a question about something be considered or what is God Modding please ask a staff member about it.
(2.) When RPing please make your post between three to five sentences at the most. One sentence posts kills RP's and it can make people get very uptight. Please check for spelling, etc. If your post contains more than four grammar errors then a staff member may go in and fix your post to where it makes sense. Please post your threads in a readable format and make sure your font size is readable and reasonable.
(3.) As it pertains to killing someone else's character. You are allowed to kill someone else’s character as long as you have given them a chance to defend themselves and/or it has become impossible for them to defend against your attack known as right to defend themselves. No matter what your opponent posts BEFORE you, you ALWAYS have the right to try and defend yourself so long as you can reasonably do so. If there is a dispute over this then please consult an Admin/Staff member for assistance. Once a character dies, that character is DEAD. You must then make/or use a new character.
(4.) Do NOT be in two places at once. In order to avoid confusion about your character’s location, please post as you arrive and leave each Alternate Universe. If two members have already begun to RP with each other and you want to join them you must via PM the member who started the thread if you can join them. In order to keep things from getting confused it you start a thread and you want others to join in please put in parenthesis after the title of the thread (Opened to anyone) if you DO NOT want anyone else to join in a thread please put the name of the thread and who you want to join in with you and whoever else you are RPing with please put in parenthesis after the title of the thread (your character’s name and the other member’s name) so no one can get confused.
(5.) Relationships are allowed with characters, but please try to keep it clean due to the fact we may have some younger members on the site. Couples are allowed to have children if they want to but please if you will discuss it with a member beforehand so they will know through via PM. If you make a profile for a child you and the person you are RPing must take turns RPing the kid unless you decide differently.
(6.) Please have the decency to leave a going away message in the general section on the board so people can know you are going on vacation or something. I know we need a break at some point, but honestly would it kill anyone to make a thread informing the people they are RPing with a head’s up that they will try and post while they are gone or something? RPs have a tendency to die due to problems like that in the past. The LOA (Leave of Absences) rule will be enforced.
(7.) I know not everyone will be able to RP all hours through the day because they work, have school, and whatnot. However you should at least give the person you at RPing with at least a week to post before carrying on without them.
The most important rule: The staff here of X-United have the right to change anything on the site at any given time. Please always check!
That's pretty much it. Have fun guys!!
