Rule 1: Respect Your Fellow Members

This is the most important rule here. In order to keep a healthy, peaceful community, we have to enforce this rule. Please respect the members here -- treat them the way you want them to treat you. We do not want any flaming or any personal arguments to occur on this site. This also means do NOT talk about others behind their back, people can read the archives of the CB and that can lead to arguments. When posting on topics, feel free to politely disagree with a member, but DO NOT call them out in a disrespectful manner. It makes you look bad, and could lead to more arguments.

Rule 2: No Cursing [to extent], No Discrimination

This is a site for all ages and therefore we must be appropriate in regard to language. Constant use of profanity will not be permitted. Any racism or discrimination of any kind, whether it be of race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation, will not be tolerated here as well. We are a peaceful community and want to keep it that way.

Rule 3: Do NOT double post/one word post, Do NOT SPAM, Do NOT type in all CAPS

SPAM (Stupid Pointless Annoying Messages) is not permitted in this forum. Punishment will be imminent if caught spamming. Spamming includes: posting irrelevant replies to a topic, posting the same topic more than once, double posting, and posts that are less than one sentence. Spam is unnecessary and does not add anything to our forum. If you need to make an addition to your previous post, do not hesitate to use the edit button at the top left corner of the post. Also, DO NOT TYPE IN ALL CAPS, LIKE THIS -- it is very annoying to read and is quite unnecessary. Also, do not overuse smilies, this will be considered SPAM and is very annoying.

Rule 4: No Obscenity, No PORN

This is a very strict rule that will be enforced here. Absolutely no pornographic, nude, or sexual images are allowed to be posted on this site. As stated before, this forum is a community for all ages, and most people here are not even at the right age to look at obscene graphics. If you break this rule, you will receive a permanent ban without question.

Rule 5: No Advertising

This is also a strict rule here. We do not allow the advertising of any other sites on Chimchar forums, and that includes other forums, or non-related sites. At the same time, we do not want anyone from this forum advertising us on other forums. It is rude, indecent, and breaks their rules, which we need to give courtesy to (it also makes us look bad over all...). Also, we do not promote disrespectful "site-wars" with other forums. If you'd like to "site war" keep it fun and get it approved by the staff. We are a peaceful community and hope to keep it that way. If you are caught advertising, you will be given a warning and if you do it again, you will receive an immediate ban. This means no advertising in PMs, on the chatbox, or anywhere on the forums.

Rule 6: Do not Revive Old Topics

Old topics are a thing of the past and do not need to be revived (anything two weeks or older is considered old). Usually they will be locked and moved to the "Archives" forum, but if you by chance see one, please notify an administrator or moderator to lock and move it.

Rule 7: You Are Responsible For Your Account

If someone spams from your account, you are still held responsible for that action. This "excuse" is used commonly for spamming and then trying to return to the forums.

Rule 8: Respect Administrator and Moderator Decisions

Please respect administrators' and moderators' decisions. They usually have a legitimate reason for a ban, or any other action, but if you strongly feel that one of them has been wrong, talk to another administrator about it. Most of the time we will converse about something before making a big decision.

Rule 9: Do Not Beg for a higher position; Do Not Beg for Pokemon

As of now we are currently not looking for any more moderators or administrators so please do not ask for these positions. Administrators will pick out people for the job. You will receive warning and a ban if the begging occurs again. Also, do not beg for pokemon in the forums. We have a trading forum where you can offer to trade one of your pokemon for another desired one.

Rule 10: Do Not Ask Other Members About Personal Information

Please do not ask others about their personal information (i.e.: age, last name, address) on this forum. We discourage any sort of action that invades other people's privacy and intend to keep it that way. You are allowed to ask first name, and gender, but if you go too far, the person can report it to the admins and you will be punished. IN ADDITION, posting pictures of other forum members, will earn you an immediate ban, violation of privacy will not be tolerated. If you wish to post a picture of yourself, that is fine.

Rule 11: Do Not Chatspeak on the Forums

If you are having a conversation with someone else on the forums, do not "chatspeak". There is a chatbox at the bottom of the homepage that you can use to have conversations. Chatspeak is usually considered as spam as well because it clogs up and floods the forums. So please do not use it too much. Chatspeak includes: "k", "plz", "tho", "dis", "iz", etc. Common abbreviations, however, are allowed, such as "brb", "lol", and "bbl".

Rule 12: Don't post a "I'm Leaving!" topic

Self explanatory. No one cares, this will be considered SPAM.

Rule 13: Don't Steal Text!

If you want to write a guide, go ahead. Make sure the guide is in your own words, not copied from smogon or some other site. If you do decide to use text from another site, please say WHERE you got it from.

Rule 14: No More Use of the Word Nigger.

No more use of the word 'nigger' or any form or variation of this word. It will be consited as cursing, disrespect, racism, and as many other rules breaking as the staff sees fit. It is no longer allowed.
