    6. Don't ask for or provide illegal pokémon content (Copyright Violation, 4 points, 2 months)
    -This includes emulators, roms, full episode downloads/streams and similar (short clips are allowed).
    -This also include advertising or asking about fan-made games, illegal manga scans, or fansubs.
    Is this only valid for fan-made Pokémon games or any fan-made games? I am curious because there is a certain fan made game I would like to talk about in a blog.

    Just as an FYI, emulators are perfectly legal, and so are ROMs if you own the original cartridge/disc.
    Emulators are legal in general (and I think this is just titled "illegal pokémon content" for convenience), but you're not quite correct in terms of ROMs. You can legally make your own personal copies (usually), but you can't provide ROMs or download ROMs from unauthorized services even if you own the original cartridge/disc.

    Having said that about emulators, there is often "no reverse engineering" clauses that the creation of emulators may violate, so even if downloading or sharing one wouldn't necessarily be illegal, making one may be.

    Still, they're all against the rules here, so it doesn't really matter.

    It comes down again to not having someone who can check if the translation is reliable so that's not a feasible solution either.

    For members who do not understand English, there are other fansites out there for Pokémon fans around the world. filb for example is an example of a German Pokémon fansite.

    Would depend on the level. Best thing to do in this case is ask a moderator of the section that you wish to post in to check the image first.

For example, if someone posted/linked a full picture of the David Statue by Michelangelo, will that be considered porn?
    Famous artworks, such as the Statue of David, will not be seen as rulebreaking.

    Um, the link doesn't work. Probably it's a problem with my connection, but I want to be sure.
    Not your connection but an error on my end. Should be fixed now.

    While SnorlaxMonster covered the majority of this for me, I will say this: Just because something may be legal, it doesn't mean we have to allow it on our site.

    Advertising has always been allowed in blogs, however due to the history of what you want to advertise for, we ask that you don't advertise it here.

    This applies to Pokemon only.

    I seem to remember there being a no-discussion rule on this.

    So this includes avatar/signatures right? Do I have to give credit to images in my signature ?

    Yes you can still discuss them. A debate about the ethics of them, or admitting to using a emulator or ROM is okay. You just cannot name/identify them or ask/help others in using them.

    It doesn't include avatars and sigs, however if you do claim it to be yours in your sig and we find out otherwise, we will forcefully remove the image.

    You can edit your own post, and if someone posted after you did, you can post back.

    Considering sockpuppeting is defined as being an online identity used for the purpose of deception, what's the harm in creating a second/third/etc account under the pretenses that malicious intent was not intended?

    The problem is that its hard to keep track and if you're using several accounts simultaneously, you can start to disuse an account when it starts to rack up infractions and thus avoid a banning period with the others.

    Unfortunately, there's just no easy way to share infractions over several accounts.

    We will however continue to allow sockpuppets for specific events, such as Halloween.

    But in such case, you're also alienating those who want to move to a new account with, like I said, non-malicious or disingenuous intentions, such as just wanting a fresh start.

    If anyone would like to make a fresh start with a new account, they may get in contact with me and we can discuss if a new account would be suitable. Alternatively if there are other reasons they can discuss with me privately.

    That's really the only time we'll allow it outside of special events. You cannot transfer infraction history from one account to the other and if a user does want to use another account, there's no reason any non-malicious reasons cannot be revealed to the staff in private. Likewise for any non-malicious reasons, we think said user would be able to understand why we may decline such a request if they're not a matter of urgency (eg "Just don't like my old account" is not a good enough reason).

    Just wondering, if someone doesn't use an account for an amount of time(2+ years maybe?) can active members request a name change to that name? Because I've noticed that users take very good names and are only make one or two posts then leave, so it won't be fair to members who want to actually be active with the name.

    Does iteru's avatar break rule 11?

    11. Don't post porn or similarly shocking content (Graphic imagery, 10 points, 4 months)
    -Shocking content include (as well as porn) gore, scat, and shock pictures.

    I hope that it is against the rules to have pics of that sort.
