Face-Offs Rules

Not open for further replies.
face-offs // the rules

Ohai people.

Welcome to the new version of the Face-Offs rules. Seeing as no one has changed it for a long while, I took the liberty of updating it.

So here we go.

i. Follow the General Rules
General Forum Rules
General Games Forum Rules

And it's a given that you should follow these ones, too. :D

ii. Face-Off Creation Rules
> Always make sure that your face-off topic isn't already that of an active face-off. You can use the Games and Face-Offs Index to check whether there's an active face-off with your topic or not.

> Make sure that the first post of your face-off contains relevance. It should have rules, an explanation of what your face-off is about, a list of co-owners and tallyists, and while it is somewhat optional, the first round of the face-off.

> A big change in the face-off rules is the type of face-offs you can create. With the Face-Offs forums being a subforum of Games, you can now create any kind of Face-Off you like. Pokemon-related or not, go crazy!*

*Only exception to this rule: No forum member face-offs, as those can become popularity contests.

> Like the general Games forum, the topics in this forum need mod approval. Thus, we ask you very nicely to be patient with us in approving your face-off. It is wise to check the Approved/Disapproved Games and Face-Offs thread to see the status of your face-off.

iii. Face-Off Voting and Management Rules
> When voting, follow all the basic posting rules. No spamming, flaming, trolling, use of foul language, multiple posting, etc...

> Be sure to read the rules of the Face-Off before you vote.

> Owners [and co-owners] must be responsible of their face-offs. They have the power to ban a user from their face-off. Should said user still continue to post in said face-off, the owner/co-owner may PM a moderator to settle the issue.

> If a face-off has been left unreplied for THREE WEEKS (a change from the previous two-week rule) and the owner cannot give a valid reason for its inactivity, a moderator has the right to close that face-off.

> If a user wishes to make a remake of an active face-off, he/she must first ask the permission of the original face-off's owner. This must be noted in some way (either in the first post of the new face-off, the last post of the original face-off or through PM).

Any questions, comments, suggestions, reactions, or whatever? Feel free to send Sweet May, Hydrohs or Schade a private message about it!

So, uhh, thanks for reading, and happy voting!
