Due to the way this was posted, some disruptive influences and trolls alike choose to bend the rules and begin flame wars even when they know they are crossing a line... Initially the thread may be allowed but it gets closed when it goes to far.

This forum is a forum for those who wish to war and discuss in game politics.

These forums are meant to be insightful as well as inciteful.

While Hate Speech, Racial Slurs, and Harassment will still not be tolerated - Cussing, Yo Mama Jokes, etc is fine.

Have fun.

War does not determine who is right - only who is left.

Who do you think will be left? - Food for thought. Best of luck!

It was because of said trolls and disruptive influences that Airmid ( Previous CM now posted this revision )...

This forum section is more lax, yes. It is and environment for war, gossip, and politics between players and Empires in game. HOWEVER, it does not mean there are no rules.

Things Not To Post:
  • Impersonation
  • Unlawful/Harming Speech
  • Harassment
  • Hate Speech
  • Images Portraying: Cruelty to Animals, Human Decapitation/Injury; anything you would see on /r/WTF or /r/NSFL or /r/NSFW
I know we will always have disrespectful/disruptive/vile people post whether as trolls or intellectuals as that is their right. Abusing that right however just to get their own way and creating a negative atmosphere in and outside the game to stir up drama for the forums and be condescending towards others in a negative fashion and breaking the rules of forum is where infractions and bans come in.

After initial warning ( via forum post or PM )... Infraction is issued and then a temp ban. Continuous offenders will receive a permanent ban.

While War& Politics section may be lax... It does have RULES, both old and updated ( most people don't scroll down the page to see the updated one which was posted due to people bending the initial rule ).
