- Do not attack groups. This includes professions, races, religions, sexual orientations, genders, incomes, or even vague groups like “you people.”

Rule 3: Respect the forum purpose and structure

- Do not post Facebook information about other forum users.
- Do not post any private information about other users.

- Do not spam users on the forums or through private messages.
- Do not start a thread without actual purpose.
- Do not start a thread about a news story or article unless you make it clear what the story is about, and offer your own opinion to start a discussion.

Rule 8: Respect your account
- Do not share your account information with other individuals. You will be held responsible for any rules violations that occur under your account.
- Do not create new accounts or use other tricks to avoid suspensions or bans.
- Do not create ‘sock puppet’ accounts – multiple accounts created just so that you can agree with yourself and make it seem like your ideas have more support than they do.
- Never include your e-mail address or any other personal information in posts.

Rule 9: Respect the Moderators
- Do not post using the color red. This color is reserved for moderators.
- Do not impersonate moderators. Do not claim to speak for the moderators.

Rule 10: Respect the decisions of the moderators
- The moderation teams reserves the right to warn, suspend, or permanently ban users judged to be acting against the spirit of the rules, even if the user is following the letter of the rules.
- Do not argue with moderators about moderator decisions. You can disagree with a moderator’s opinions, just like any other poster, but when they post moderator actions in red text, it is considered final.
- Moderators have no access to your game account. If you have an issue you must contact customer service.

Generally, BE NICE. There is nothing wrong with being nice to each other.

    Hey everyone,

    I am not sure how many of you will read this, but if it can touch one person it's worth it. I just wanted to share something that happened in my real life this past week that I feel can help other people to keep holding on for hope.

    A few of my empire friends know the situation I've been dealing with already, so sorry if any of you read. Earlier this year, I received news that my father was diagnosed with liver failure. The past couple of years we could tell something may be wrong, but never really knew for sure. He had lost a little weight, but overall seemed okay. The news was shocking to hear, but we made the best that we could. His health in the mean time began to slowly decline. There were moments where he would black out, or show early signs of dementia, so we told him to go get checked out. About 3 weeks ago, we found out that he also has cancer, and apparently has had it for quite awhile. Hearing this on top of what he already had been given was devastating. We all talked as a family, and he decided to apply for a special trial treatment through Duke University as he stated he had nothing to lose...Well this past Saturday was his first day of chemotherapy. Things seemed to go okay at the time, but later in the day I got a call from my brother stating he was in ICU. *Side note, my brother, aunt and uncle are all in the medical field working at the same hospital he was taken too. Plus my dad is a retired EMT.*.....We were told by his doctors that pretty much it would be amazing if he would make it through the night. It was crazy to think here is the strongest man I know, who spent most of his life saving others, and can't be saved. He had been placed in a medically induced coma, was taking dialysis to remove fluid, fighting cancer and liver failure, and breathing through a ventilator. I watched my mom and sisters cry, my brother hold his emotions in for the family, and myself just in total shock. I was already trying to imagine what life would be like without my dad. I couldn't sleep at night, and the days have seemed so long...Here is the important part as I don't want to go into extreme detail any further. Today is Tuesday 05/12/2015, and my father is still here. Not only is he still here, but he is now awake, off of the breathing tube, and is talking to everyone!!! I have rash on my knees from praying for him, and now tears in my eyes from getting this news....I don't know if many of you are spiritual or not, but I can tell you that what has happened to my family has been a blessing from God. It is a supernatural experience that less than 4 days ago we were told to prepare his funeral arrangements. For those of you out there who are going through trials, and facing adversity. Don't give up your hope. Anything can happen. I hope that others are blessed as fortunate as my family and I have been. Thank you for the people who took the time to read this.

    Truly inspirational. I sincerely hope that your father continues his recovery. He is obviously very strong willed and was not ready to give in.
