Forum/Website Policies
Use of the online forums and Website is a privilege offered by Legacies and as such there are a few policies for use that players must abide by. Failure to abide by these policies may result in the deletion of posts, suspension of posting privileges, or the issuance of ref warnings.

Website/Forum Bullet
Accountability
Anonymous posts are not allowed and will be deleted. All registered accounts must have the "Real Name" field in the profile filled in.


Website/Forum Bullet
Courtesy
The forums are a place for polite discussion, debate, and exchange of information. Personal attacks, defamation, provocation, flaming, etc, will not be tolerated.


Website/Forum Bullet
Profanity
Legacies is a game with a mature playership. A few "adult" words are not unheard of, however an effort should be made to keep these to a minimum. "Flavor text" is fine, but giving a sailor, or Dennis Leary, a run for their money is not


Website/Forum Bullet
Clear Dialog
The forum is a place for mature discourse between players. Legacies is not full of grammer or spelling Nazis, however a reasonable attempt to communicate in a clear and legible fashion is appreciated. As Penny-Arcade is fond of saying the period is your friend at the end. Moreover the capital letter is your friend at the beginning. The forum is not a realtime form of communication; users have time to proof read posts and further, may edit them when typos are noticed. Use of 1337, or other juvenile forum dialects is strictly prohibited.


Website/Forum Bullet
Posting Links/Images
Any links that are not work safe must be marked as such in an ABUNDANTLY clear fashion. Images that are not work safe should NEVER be posted on the forum. Links to third party commercial ventures that are not in some way related to LARPing will be deleted. Legacies does not care if it really is a very good deal on prescription drugs, or if the site guarentees the lowest morgage rates possible.


Website/Forum Bullet
Forum Avatars and Signitures
User avatars have a maxiumum size of 150 x 150 pixels. Avatars larger than that will automatically be resized by the forum. Signatures should be no more than 3 lines of text and should not contain pictures or banners.


Website/Forum Bullet
Acceptable interaction on the In Game boards
Only active (characters currently entered into the database, played at least once and not archived), live (characters that did not end event as a spirit) characters may post in the In Game forums. Combat and Skill use are not allowed, conversations only. Players may describe what a character is doing, so long as it is an accomplishment they could feasibly do while actually playing their character, but NOT what their character is thinking. Players should avoid posting internal monologue or motive. In essence, posts should contain only content that other characters would be capable of observing, whether it be dialog or description of actions. Players should assume that anything said or done in the In Game forums was potentially observed by any other character in game.
