Completely Off Topic Rules
Welcome to COT! Here's a new and updated set of rules to help keep things running in this forum.
-- This topic's tag will always reflect the date of the latest update. Information on what was updated will always be found in the "Recent Updates" section at the end of this post. --
What belongs here:
All discussion of things not related to LEGO goes in this forum. You will also find text games either related to BZPower (Describe the Sig, etc.) or off-topic in their own right (Would You Rather?, etc.).
Note that all off-topic creative works and RPGs now have their own forum, Off-Topic Culture.
This forum also allows special topics for members on the day of their birthday. Birthday topics for staff members and Retired Staff, however, go in General Discussion.
Note that posts do not add to your active post count in this forum.
All of BZPower's Rules and Guidelines must be followed.
Please do not spam. Spam can range from gibberish to posts unrelated to the topic. Please ask if you have questions!
Do not flame. Respecting other members is a global rule.
Please do not double post. Use the edit button to modify your existing post.
No inappropriate content. This includes linking to other sites with sexual content, excessive language, and otherwise inappropriate content. See the Advertising Policy for details.
Political and religious discussion is not allowed. This is another of BZPower's global rules.
Use the report link! The link can be found to the right below a post. Use this to notify the staff of any violations.
Regarding revival: Please do not post in a topic that has been inactive for 60 days or more. Pinned topics and official topics are exempt from this rule.
A note on official topics:
Topics will be made official by the COT staff based on need and activity; approval over PM is no longer needed. Because of this, please do not use the qualifiers "Official" or "Unofficial" in your topic titles to avoid any confusion.
Approval is no longer needed for text games as well; you are free to post without having PMed a Forum Leader first.
Thank you all for reading. I will leave this topic open in case anyone has a question about these rules that he or she would like to ask the COT staff, especially since the rules have undergone a major update. On behalf of all the BZPower staff, we hope you enjoy your time here!
The COT staff:
07/20/2014: Official topics reinstated after negative feedback. I'm really sorry about that!
07/20/2014: Many old rules removed; official topics changed; text game approval no longer needed.
