Lets talk about? [image=http://www.4x4er.co.uk/images/buttons/rules.jpg] For a bit! So Saintheart and I have been talking, and I think we should take a look at some of our regulations for these forums. There are a few that could use an examination. I think, for a lot of these questions, what we should do is really up in the air. The existing rules are really good. They?re there for a reason, and they?ve served the forums well (in my opinion). Can they better? Possibly. Are they good now? Probably. The purpose of this thread is to see if these rules are still what?s best for the forum, and what we can do to responsibly make them a better fit. You?ll see that theres no major changes in store here, more technical stuff really. And there doesn't need to be change coming from this thread. If the fit is great now, there is no need to change things, and in fact, change would probably be bad for the forums. I?m not going to say much in this thread. I have my opinions, but this is about your voices. Based on what is said here, and what Saintheart and I feel prudent, the necessary reforms will be made. So lets kick it off! Our schedule is? 1.) The One Thread, Per Author, Per Forum Rule 2.) Consecutive Winners in the RPF Awards Rule 3.) The One Game per Franchise / Two Games per Genre NSWRPF Rule 4.) Sock Rules 5.) Moderator Involvement in the RPF Awards Rules [hr] First up is our old friend from both the Star Wars RPF and Non Star Wars RPF: 5) Authorisation All Role Playing in keeping with the Non-Star Wars Universe is freely allowed, and games may be created and posted within this forum at the discretion of the author. No authorisation is required. Any Star Wars cross-overs, however, will require Moderator approval. Please note that games are limited to one thread, per author, per forum. This is a concrete rule and is not negotiable. This rule is made to try and discourage flooding of the forums, and to allow for the whole community to be involved in RPG creation and play. Hopefully people will realise the responsibility inherent in starting a game and we will see fewer games started and dumped by GMs. The 'punishment' for starting a second game will start with a warning, followed by a twenty-four hour ban, which may double for every infraction after that. If you wish to end your current thread and open a new one, PM the RPF moderator, Imperial_Hammer, to lock your current thread. [hr] So, what do we know here? We?re not willing to give people the ability to have more threads that they do now. That is, Saint and I are drawing the line at two games per user, to preserve game quality and prevent a potential glut of cheap and flimsy games. However, how do you guys feel about having the choice to put two games in a single forum? You can have two Star Wars games, or two Non Star-Wars games, or one in both like we have now. The rule would be changed to: "Please note that games are limited to two per author." Would this strike you guys as good? Speak up and let us know! -I_H and Saintheart [hr] [hl=black]Me Edit:[/hl] Done and Done!
