I just wanted to get this up here to explain what images are and are not allowed to be posted in the forums.
You cannot post an image that:

1) is patently offensive or promotes racism, bigotry, hatred or physical harm of any kind against any group or individual;

2) harasses or advocates harassment of another person;

3) exploits people in a sexual or violent manner;

4) contains nudity, excessive violence, or offensive subject matter or contains a link to a website with inappropriate content;

5) publicly posts information that poses or creates a privacy or security risk to any person;

6) constitutes or promotes information that you know is false or misleading or promotes illegal activities or conduct that is abusive, threatening, obscene, defamatory or libelous;

7) constitutes or promotes an illegal or unauthorized copy of another person’s copyrighted work;

8) involves the transmission of "chain letters"

9) furthers or promotes any criminal activity or enterprise or provides instructional information about illegal activities including, but not limited to making or buying illegal weapons, violating someone's privacy, or providing or creating computer viruses;

10) includes a photograph of another person that you have posted without that person's consent; or

11) violates the privacy rights, publicity rights, defamation rights, copyrights, trademark rights, contract rights or any other rights of any person.

12) no flashing images

Like posting an image that says, "RePost this image and receive a Billion Credits!". Then people repost it all over the forums.

In the 'chain letters', does it count if it's a parody and doesn't revolve anywhere around PetRPG?
Like not mentioning credits or getting items if you post it to ten forums?

Because a couple of pictures have been removed recently.
Not that they were overly abusive, but it is a PG-13 site.

;~;

I'm glad this was posted though!
Thanks Doug!

Hmm...I'd say something to it being PG-13, then again I don't want to be banned again _._

But yeah, the Chain Mail things are really annoying.

well.. more or less, the site *is* PG.
the only thing thats PG-13 about it is the fact that we let users say things like "Hell" "damn" and "Ass" which is something most petsites don't really allow. :P

True that. Thats y on some threads, ppl have separate rules..... For example, no cussing is on mine. Well, technically it's not MY thread. It's Zombie and panther's thread.
