*/The Order of the Glitch\*
Welcome, one and all, to The Order of the Glitch. A club for fellow fans of Glitch Pokémon to discuss the denizens of the unexplored side of the Pokémon world.
But before we can get to the fun, like any good club, there are rules to be established. Read 'em, follow 'em, live 'em.
1: All SPPF and club forum rules apply. For your convenience, click here for the SPPF general rules, and click here for the club forum rules.
2: It is imperative that new members familiarize themselves with the rules before joining up. Therefore, the post you make when you request to join the club must include the following; "I, *insert your username here*, do hereby swear that I have read the rules of this fine club and intend to follow them."
3: No debates over whether or not Glitch Pokémon are real Pokémon in this club. Such a topic can and most undoubtedly will lead to drama. And drama has closed many clubs in the past, and is even the reason why Shiny Pokémon clubs are banned. I don't want to see Glitch Pokémon clubs go down the same road, so please, no drama of any kind. If you wish to debate whether Glitch Pokémon are real Pokémon, by all means, do so here.
4: Absolutely no spreading of false rumors. If I find out about a member of the Order of the Glitch spreading malicious lies about Glitch Pokémon (IE; Missingno. can fry your cartridge, LM4 evolves into Mew at level 86, a .4 traded to Crystal will be holding a Mist Stone, etc.), in or out of this thread, it will result in immediate expulsion and a lifetime ban from the club. There's enough of that sort of stuff out there already. Offenses that occur before joining up do not count for this, so if you used to spread lies about Glitch Pokémon, but don't intend to anymore, it's perfectly fine for you to join.
5: Rule breaking in this club works on demerit system. Details can be seen below.
6: When adding the pledge in rule #2 to your post, omit the word "fine" from it. Failure to comply will result in denial of club membership without being explicitly told why. This is to help ensure that you really read the rules and didn't just gloss over them.
7: Do not post in this club if you are currently banned from it. If you have a lifetime ban from the club, posting here will be reported to a staff member, make no mistake about it.
8: No flaming. If you hate Glitch Pokémon, then what are you even doing in this club to begin with? Flaming is grounds for a lifetime ban.
9: Do not badger another member to give you their Pixel Points. They are non-transferable.
10: Co-owners cannot earn demerits, but if a co-owner repeatedly proves to be unworthy of the position, he or she will be fired.
Rule breaking earns you demerits. Demerits do not expire, so don't think you'll be OK by spreading out your rule breaking. Demerits can only be given by myself or a co-owner. If you earn enough demerits, you get banned from the club. To see how long you would get banned for for a certain amount of demerits, see the following list.
5 demerits: 1 day ban
20 demerits: 1 week ban
50 demerits: 1 month ban
75 demerits: 1 year ban
100 demerits: banned for life.
Here is a list of what actions warrant demerits, and how many demerits are given for them.
*Violating Rule #1: 1 demerit.
*Posting in the club without properly applying to join: 0 demerits for first post, 1 demerit for every subsequent post until user properly applies to join.
*Violating Rule #3: 5 demerits.
*Violating Rule #7: As many demerits as it takes to elevate your ban.
*Violating Rules #4 or #8: 101 demerits.
*Giving demerits when not given the authority to do so: The same amount of demerits you attempted to give.
*Violating Rule #9: 10 demerits.
Pixel Points are pretty much the opposite of demerits. You earn Pixel Points for doing good in the club, and can spend them in our Pixel Point Shop for certain privileges. Pixel Points can only be handed out by myself. The following is a list of some of the things that earn you Pixel Points, and how many Pixel Points they earn you:
*Joining the club the right way on the first try: 3 Pixel Points
*Going one month without accumulating any demerits: 5 Pixel Points.
*Reporting any problems in the club to me: 2 Pixel Points
*Submitting a banner for the club (only three will be accepted; no points awarded if banner is not accepted): 10 Pixel Points. Only awarded once per user.
Again, this list is not comprehensive. I have the right to award Pixel Points at my own discretion.
Pixel Point Shop
Welcome to the Pixel Point Shop! Here, you can cash in your Pixel Points for various things, such as special privileges within the club. Here is our stock, complete with prices. To buy, something, simply quote the desired item and state your intent to purchase it. If you have enough Pixel Points, you will be awarded the item. Club staff members are not allowed to shop here, as there wouldn't be much purpose to it. Only regular members can be banned, get demerits, or earn Pixel Points.
*Ban Downgrade Card: If the holder is banned from the club, he or she may use a Ban Downgrade card to cut the ban time in half. For instance, this can be used to decrease one's one-year ban to a six-month ban, or a month-long ban to a 15-day ban, or a weeklong ban to a four-day ban. Cannot be used on one-day or lifelong bans. Non-transferable. Cost: 4 Pixel Points.
*Anti-Demerit Card: Upon use, one demerit is erased from the user's account. Non-transferable. Cost: 10 Pixel Points.
*Poké Ball: On occasion, I will post to state that a wild Glitch Pokémon has appeared in the club. The first member who has a Poké Ball to post stating that they caught the Glitch Pokémon will be awarded a number of Pixel Points. Cost: 2 Pixel Points.
*Co-Owner Application: Entitles the user to become a co-owner. Cost: 50 Pixel Points plus 1 Pixel Point for each demerit user has.
