Negative Reputation 08/03/19We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.

Nyx added a topic in News & AnnouncementsPULL RulesHello everyone! Here are the new rules. Enjoy:
Minimum age for users is now 18.
Minimum age for snowflakes and other Internet personalities is 16. Do not post threads about people 15 and under.
No gore of any kind. No CP. Nudity is ok, but spoiler it.
This is an English-speaking website. If you want to communicate in a foreign language as well, please always accompany your post with a complete English translation.
No self-promotion or excessive self-posting.
Do not put links to your social media sites in your profile / signature. Exchange them over PM if you want.
Do not put photos of yourself in your avatar or signature. Don’t post photos of yourself in threads about other people.
Don’t compare yourself to other snowflakes (e.g. “wow her eyebrows are bad, at least mine aren’t that bad”, “good thing I take care of myself unlike her”).
Don’t interject threads with personal stories or remarks unless they are directly relevant to the discussion and contribute something of value (e.g. “I used to work in X industry and can confirm that …” is okay; “my brother tried to do that too now he’s in jail for …” is not okay).
Do not make a thread about yourself. If you do, you will be banned permanently and publicly shamed.
You may post pictures of yourself in the beauty / fashion forum if you have specific questions or are looking for advice.
No vendettas (towards snowflakes or other members)
Excessive personal interjections and personal stories, unless in a general thread, are not allowed.
Be polite. Debate about a snowflake is encouraged, attacking another user is not ok. You can disagree with or criticize what other users say, but do not attack others.
Except for the off-topic discussion boards, do not bring up general controversial issues in threads.
Don’t talk about politics, religion, race, or social issues except in the off-topic boards. These just derail threads.
No reputation / vote manipulation
Do not downvote people because you dislike them.
Do not manipulate votes. If you do this, it will be obvious and you will be permanently banned.
Do not complain about being downvoted. If you believe someone is engaging in vote manipulation against you, contact staff privately and we will look into it. Otherwise, just accept your downvotes.
Is allowed. You may post full names of snowflakes over 18.
For snowflakes who are 16-18, please refrain from posting last names. Everything is fair game, aside from addresses, phone numbers, and personal information of uninvolved parties, such as family and friends.
You may speculate about a snowflake’s potential psychiatric disorders. However, if you do, please don’t throw around random illnesses. Give some supporting information.
Don’t act like an authority on mental illness.
Don’t say something like “I have X disorder and Y definitely must have it too.” Don’t talk about your own issues in threads about other people.
You can say things like “given all of these [whatever], she seems like she has BPD/NPD”.
Don’t contact snowflakes, their friends, or their family in any form.
If you see spam posts, REPORT them. Don’t reply to the spammer.
Don't make duplicate threads. Before making a new topic, use the "search" function to see if a similar thread already exists.
Being intolerant of other opinions is not acceptable. It is okay to debate, not to argue.
Do not make personal attacks against other members. We are a family. If you do this, you will no longer be welcome here.
Do not cause drama for the sake of upsetting other members.
Do not come to the board just to tell us we’re all terrible. Making a post like “YOU’RE ALL MEAN LEAVE THIS GIRL ALONE” will get you automatically banned.
Do not white knight.
Do not make multiple accounts, especially to evade bans.
Having multiple accounts can look suspicious to mods.
If you want your account name changed, message @Nyx.
If you want to appeal your ban, message @Nyx.
When in doubt, message @Nyx. Don’t be shy.
Do report. Do not make frivolous reports (such as "I don't like this person"). Frivolous reports will result in a warning and possible ban.
When reporting, please give a reason. Reports citing what rule the post is breaking and giving some information are way more valuable and will get the issue resolved faster. (Reports with no explanations sometimes require mods to go through and skim the entire thread to find out what's going on. Please save us time if you can).
Don’t waste the mods’ time. Report people for breaking the rules, otherwise don’t report.
Do not post that you’re leaving. If you don’t want to be here, just leave. If you make a post saying that you are leaving, you will be banned permanently.
Feel free to constructively criticize the site or staff, or offer suggestions for improvement. Don’t just say “this place sucks I’m not coming back”. No one cares.
Your username cannot be the same as a snowflake’s name (unless you are that snowflake)
Don’t try to impersonate snowflakes or other people (excluding obvious sarcasm).
19. Do not intentionally lie about people you are posting about.
Don’t fake screenshots, quotes, or other evidence.
If you are unsure whether or not something is true, don’t claim it as absolute fact.
Don’t accuse people of anything serious without evidence to back it up.
20. Don't necro threads that have been inactive for over a month unless you are providing new
and relevant content.
21. Please follow thread guidelines when making a new thread.
If it does not live up to these standards, the thread will not be moved to Online Personalities. If in doubt, check the guidelines.All other rules listed here apply. 22. Warnings and bans are issued at the discretion of the moderation team. Most transgressions will result in a warning, more serious violations will result in permanent bans. If you’d like to appeal a ban, please message @Nyx.
Rules are subject to change without notice.
