Games & Trivia Rules
Welcome to Games & Trivia! This topic will serve to present the updated rules of 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 bottom of this post. --
What Belongs in G&T:
Games! Not RPGs, though! See below. And yes, trivia is welcome too, including topics dedicated to your BZPower Quizzes.
We have three forums for your RPG needs: Bionicle RPG, LEGO RPG, and OTC. Please be aware that each forum has a different approval process for RPGs. If you are planning to start one, be sure to familiarize yourself with the process in the appropriate forum.To be clear, games in this forum should not involve a combination of the following:
- Taking on the role of a character, assigned or chosen by one's own volition
- Development of said character through the player's actions
- A storyline determined by a player's or all players' actions
- "Collaborative storytelling" involving any of the above
"Strategy games" in which players take on a role are allowed, however. If you are unsure of the nature of your game, please PM me or a G&T Forum Assistant before posting it.
LEGO Games Only!:
This forum is meant for LEGO-related games and trivia only: Bionicle, Hero Factory, Ninjago, heck, even Cyber Slam - no matter what, it must relate back to a LEGO theme. BZPower-related games (such as "Describe the Sig of the Member above You" or "How Well Known Are You?") belong in COT.
Playing a Game:
It is the duty of all players to read the host's rules of the game and follow them. Failure to do so will result in intervention by the G&T staff.
Be courteous to your fellow players. That is all!
General Rules and Guidelines:
All BZPower Rules and Guidelines do apply. Spamming, flaming, etc. = nope!
Do not post inappropriate content. Keep all posts family-friendly. Inappropriate language, excessive violence, and any sexual content will not be tolerated.
Use the report button! Please do not post to reprimand someone who has broken these rules; use the report link (located at the bottom of the post) to bring it to the attention of the staff.
Players cannot double post. Use the edit button, or wait for someone else to respond to the topic.
Hosts, however, can double post. This is intended to help hosts of games such as Hitman and Mafia, as well as is an effort to reduce spam. Double posting simply to bump one's own topic, however, is still not allowed.
Regarding revival: Revival in this forum is 60 days; please always check the date of the last post before posting.
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 G&T staff. On behalf of all the BZPower staff, we hope you enjoy your time here!
