Hi, guys and gals, it's time for a Housepets! Forums ProTip!

Image

If you see a post that violates one of the forum rules, please submit a report rather than talking about the fact that the post is bad.

To do that, find and click on the Image Report button located in the lower-right corner of the first rule-breaking post. Please do not report more than one post in a single thread; anyone with moderator permissions in the appropriate forum will receive a link to the reported post in their moderator control panel and read through the entire thread from that post onward.

Once you have elected to file a report, you will be directed to a report form.

Image

Select the most appropriate option from the drop-down box and (if necessary) enter a brief description of why you're reporting the post in the text box. If you select the radio button to be notified when your report is dealt with, you'll receive an automatically-generated e-mail which basically says "Your report is being handled by a moderator or administrator and has been closed. For more information, contact [whichever mod closed the report]."

By following this procedure, you'll help us deal with any issues that may arise while simultaneously not mini-modding. Thanks, guys!

I've used it a couple of times already. It's not bad, and it doesn't offend anyone...hopefully...however, it does help out the mods get to the fallacy quickly...

P.S.. Nice graphics, Diss!

Is it just me or are the HP Forums becoming increasingly rulesy? Not that it's a bad thing that there are rules, but the situation can't be THAT bad.

Then again, Buckdida has yelled at me multiple times for not adequately exploring the forums, so perhaps my naivete springs from the lack of exploration.

Rules mostly come from necessity. When things get out of hand, rules need to be made. It's hard keeping a forum friendly and appropriate without quite a few rules, since people tend to be neither of those things on their own.

The 'rules' used to be one guideline which was basically not to get too out of hand or be too silly. When the forum got bigger and people found that difficult to manage (subjectivity's a *****) rules were brought in – least, I assume that was the motivation, since at that point Rick was playing the part of every role. As new problems or things that could potentially cause problems come up, more rules are put into place regarding them.

What about arguing about values?
It will happen sooner or later.
On another forum the "authorities" closed the thread because of this. Nobody was flaming, just discussing something (For five hours non-stop!). Well, maybe we derailed the thread a little bit. ;)

Something else:

It's fair, as long as it's kept at the minimum possible level. I hate the tendency of rules put in for everything (somewhere else, by somebody else, in another situation).

Re-checked the rules once more and i've got everything covered. Also, not to backseat mod or be a mini-mod, but isn't there a rule that there's "No one-word or single-image responses"? Cuz I've seen some posts (like the post above me) that's just one word and nothing more. Isn't that not allowed?

Things like that probably won't be called out, because that would be even worse than the original one word post. But if you were to abuse one-word posts, you'd probably get a grumpy message from a mod.

That's coming from me, not a mod, but something like that is probably why.

I'm not sure if we've said anything about it. If not, then it's along the lines of an unspoken rule. It's still a rule, but it should be common sense that you shouldn't.

Per the first post of this thread, it is a "minor rule."

No one-word or single-image responses (unless the topic is about those very things, naturally). This includes thread bumping; do not bump a thread unless you have something additional to contribute.

Agreed.

Additionally, any topic likely to provoke such a response is probably forbidden from discussion here anyway.

Drugs or criminal activity

Just something I wanted a little clarification on. Does alcohol constitute a drug under this rule? I've seen people reprimanded for doing what amounted to mentioning the fact that alcohol exists, not even in the context of actual consumption.

...

Okay, I suppose I just answered my own question there, but it never hurts to ask.

Yeah, there was a bit of a misunderstanding. In any case, I'm glad to get that cleared up.

Can /spoiler be used to hide non-pg references, or statements that may "invite flaming"? (with a warning of course).
I'd like to use it to post my opinions that people (or overzealous mods *jokes*) would most likely disagree with,
contains sarcasm, etc.

No. Spoiler tags only invite people to look at what was said if used in that way.

I have to ask. In order to join an RP do you need to supply a character sheet? I don't mean to sound "Noobish" but I have been in multiple forum RP's. And a lot of them require a character sheet.

Welcome to the Housepets! forum community! Please take a moment to introduce yourself in the welcome thread.

If you have questions about role playing, I encourage you to check out the Role Playing Section, especially the Out-Of-Character Sub-Forum which relates to character and campaign creation and management. You can get a lot of good information from the Main Pet-Friendly OOC Thread. If you still have questions, feel free to send a private message to ctcmjh, that section's moderator.

I also recommend spending some time in the forums dedicated to the comic and dropping by the Not the Comic section for some non-Housepets! discussion.

Trolling is saying something specifically for the purpose of making others angry. At least, that's how I understand it.

Post Re: Forum Rules
In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion. The noun troll may refer to the provocative message itself, as in: "That was an excellent troll you posted". While the word troll and its associated verb trolling are associated with Internet discourse, media attention in recent years has made such labels subjective, with trolling describing intentionally provocative actions outside of an online context. For example, mass media uses troll to describe "a person who defaces Internet tribute sites with the aim of causing grief to families."

Source: WIKIPEDIA I remembered it as a useless site, but times are changing. I found almost everything there i was looking for. (Irrelevant:I also found a slang dictionary.)

Thanks for letting me know, I had never heard of that term before. Good thing though now I know. I would never do that to anyone.

It's been about a year since I was last here and I want to get into the RP, but I have no clue how...can I get some help? I know I need to make a character, but where do I do that? And where can I even put him? And is there a character template.

Post Re: Forum Rules
The rules have been updated. The first post has been edited. Please review the new guidelines at your earliest convenience. Updates are indicated by bold crimson text below (but not in the first post).

Welcome to the Housepets! Forums!

Minor Rules:
  • Do not derail a discussion thread. While it is acceptable to go off topic for a post or two, it is much less so to overtly change the topic for an extended period.
  • Don't stretch the page. It is completely unnecessary to write a long string of characters uninterrupted by spaces. Similarly, outside comic translations and the Media Median, there is no reason to post images more than 500 pixels wide.
  • If you must resurrect a thread, please don't do so to immediately drive it off topic. Make sure any necromancy is both necessary and relevant.
  • Keep it clean! The profanity filter has lots of words in it. Trying to evade the filter counts against you. To be safe, if you're going to self-censor, completely obliterate the word with asterisks.
  • Make sure to report inappropriate posts. Talking about posts that break the rules does nothing to resolve the situation and may be construed as mini-modding. You can get more information about reporting posts here.
  • No one-word or single-image responses. If you cannot contribute to one conversation, find another to participate in. (This rule does not apply to some forum games.)
  • Please do not double-post. Every post you make has an edit button in the upper-right corner. If you need to add more information to a thread and nobody's posted since you, use that button instead. (This rule does not apply to 'updates' in threads where those are necessary.)
  • Type coherently. Since we communicate entirely through the written word here, we have to be able to understand each other. This means, among other things, no chat speak.


Major Rules:
  • Come as you are. Outside of role playing, there's no reason for you to assume a false persona. Be honest about yourself. It should go without saying that this includes impersonation. This also includes sockpuppeting. Don't create multiple accounts to support a contrarian point of view.
  • Do not evade bans. This is common sense. If you've been banned once, coming back with another account will only get you banned again. If your ban was originally temporary, it will be extended or made permanent.
  • No Flaming. Do not openly attack, insult, belittle, or abuse another poster. You will be warned if this occurs; you will be banned on grounds of harassment if this appears to be chronic.
  • No Mini-Modding. Attempting to call out a rule-breaker by citing the rules is annoying and derails the thread. You will be warned if this occurs. Remember to report any post in violation of the rules so a moderator can handle the problem.
  • No Trolling. Any topic or response purposely intended to incite flames WILL result in a ban. Even if you attempt to have a "serious" conversation, and bend or tiptoe around the board rules as a result, this counts as trolling.

Not for Discussion:
The following items are not appropriate for the board and will result in post deletion and/or thread closure.
  • Current politics, religion, and other potentially controversial issues outside of the context of the comic, especially as far as it pertains to creating an environment in which to flame others for their viewpoints.
  • Drugs or criminal activity, including obtaining mp3s, movies, or computer programs illegally.
  • No shipping! While many shipping threads start out silly and fun, they can quickly degenerate into arguing and creepiness. Do not make threads or signatures promoting your favorite pairing. This includes forum member shipping. It is acceptable to discuss romantic couplings in the current comic thread and the role playing and fan fiction sections in the context of comic discussion, a role playing adventure, fan art, or fan fiction.
  • No solicitation. Do not create a thread or post requesting donations. The boards are not here for you to advertise your products or services and while we can sympathize with those who are down on their luck, you should seek assistance elsewhere.
  • Respect the moderators and their decisions. If you want to know why an action was taken, feel free to PM the moderator with any questions. If their answer doesn't satisfy you (or you think it's unfair), you may ask a global moderator for a second opinion. However, you should not make a big scene in public and disrupt the flow of conversation. Doing so will result in a warning.
  • The rating of this forum is PG-13 at maximum. That means, while it is okay to mention sex, it is not okay to be explicit about it, nor to discuss it in context of specific characters, NOR is it okay to discuss explicit violence in the same manner. Talking about sites that deal with I flunked middle school is not allowed, and linking to them will result in a warning. Posting images with explicit sexual or violent content WILL result in a ban.
  • None of the above can be discussed in any capacity on the forum, comment box, or any other board or chat room endorsed and moderated by this forum or a representative of this forum (to the extent they are acting within their capacity as a representative of this site), nor can discussion or arrangement of said activities be advertised within these areas or directly connected with Housepets in any manner.

Being here is a privilege, not a right. Your account may be suspended over matters of instigation (arranging DDoS, troll baiting) against this site and any attempt to use the board as recruitment for any illegal or other activity against the rules of this forum, including creating and advertising for boards, chat rooms, and Web sites solely for the purpose of defaming or subverting the rules of this forum, even if the activity was private or did not occur on the forum itself.

Pretty much everything has been updated anywhere between a little to a lot.
I think most of the updates are clarifications based on certain circumstances within the past year.
Either way, it's a good excuse to familiarize ourselves once again with the rules. ;) The Housepets! forum is a wonderful place and I hope it stays that way.

The shipping signatures will have to go. As far as the solicitation rule, that was drafted after several incidents of people asking for donations or offering their artistic services in exchange for money. I believe notification of charity events is fine as long as you do not benefit.

Example: 'Hey, guys, Steam's donating all proceeds to charity for the next 24 hours' as opposed to 'Hey, guys, I lost my job and I need money. Please donate to my Paypal account.'

I don't understand why the shipping sigs have to go have they really cause that many problems? And does that include my Challenger01 Fan sig too?

Edit: You know I feel I need to say it maybe I'll get modded for it maybe not but I need to get this off my chest. It seems to me that The Mods or Rick or Both want to ban shipping out right. Fine if that's what you want to do then go ahead; its your forum you can do what you want, I'm not going to like it but I would comply, but if that is what you want to do (which I'm sorry to me seems to be the case here) then just do it already. It just seems to me that getting rid of the Shipping Sigs is utterly pointless and I really don't get why your even doing it.

Some people are turned off by the shipping, really, and we don't want to scare people off. Shipping is still allowed for discussion if it's relevant to the comic being discussed, which is the main place shipping belongs anyway.

Ahh, and right after I created my first ever animated .gif, too. Oh well. Seems a silly little thing to be turned off by, but I won't argue.
