face-offs // the rules
Welcome to the new version of the Face-Offs rules. Seeing as no one has changed it for a long while, I took the liberty of updating it.
So here we go.
i. Follow the General Rules
ii. Face-Off Creation Rules
> Always make sure that your face-off topic isn't already that of an active face-off. You can use the Games and Face-Offs Index
to check whether there's an active face-off with your topic or not.
> Make sure that the first post of your face-off contains relevance. It should have rules, an explanation of what your face-off is about, a list of co-owners and tallyists,
and while it is somewhat optional, the first round of the face-off
> A big change in the face-off rules is the type of face-offs you can create. With the Face-Offs forums being a subforum of Games, you can now create any kind of Face-Off you like
. Pokemon-related or not, go crazy!
> Like the general Games forum, the topics in this forum need mod approval
. Thus, we ask you very nicely to be patient
with us in approving your face-off. It is wise to check the Approved/Disapproved Games and Face-Offs
thread to see the status of your face-off.
iii. Face-Off Voting and Management Rules
> When voting, follow all the basic posting rules. No spamming, flaming, trolling, use of foul language, multiple posting, etc...
> Be sure to read the rules of the Face-Off before you vote.
> Owners [and co-owners] must be responsible of their face-offs. They have the power to ban a user from their face-off. Should said user still continue to post in said face-off, the owner/co-owner may PM a moderator to settle the issue.
> If a face-off has been left unreplied for THREE WEEKS (a change from the previous two-week rule) and the owner cannot give a valid reason for its inactivity, a moderator has the right to close that face-off.
> If a user wishes to make a remake of an active face-off, he/she must first ask the permission of the original face-off's owner. This must be noted in some way (either in the first post of the new face-off, the last post of the original face-off or through PM).
Any questions, comments, suggestions, reactions, or whatever? Feel free to send Dramatic Melody, Skiyomi, Sweet May, or bobandbill a private message about it!
So, uhh, thanks for reading, and happy voting!
