Fun & Games Rules and Guidelines
Fun and Games is a place to relax from the more mundane and heated side of life if you see it that way, of course you'll still be able to take on a warmhearted challenge here and there. Come in and have some fun!
Bear in mind that post counts do not count in this section and all general forum rules of Bulbagarden shall apply here as anywhere else.
Rules and Guidelines
1/ Have You Read the Rules? Please Check Them Out
Chances are, every game you play has its own set of rules in the first post. Abide by those and everyone will enjoy playing in the thread. Essentially this is the stay on topic rule.
2/ Ridicule and Underhanded Flaming
Disguising aggression in games is a no-go. We will catch you if you try to insult someone through the standard course of play.
Always remember that we're here to relax and take it easy. ;3 Sure, we can have a little conversation on the side in some games, but no one wants to participate in a game where one person rains on everyone's parade. Please, please spare any personal or emotional problems for your blogs. This includes any personal disputes or issues you have with users off this site and per our forum policy, you will be infracted for this.
3/ Counting Games are allowed under some conditions
Please refer to the thread about the counting games before starting one.
4/ Limited Ping Ponging
Put simply, this is merely an exchange of consecutive posts between two posters that go on for some time. The limit is that two players shouldn't be going back and forth for more than a standard page (15 posts).
We won't mind it so long as you're playing to the rules of the thread, but keep the dialogue open so others can hop in at any time.
5/ Bumping is A-OK for two instances
-You are legitimately running a game
-You're adding a post that can keep the thread going for others.
If you'd like to find an older game to participate in, please use our Games Directory. New games pop up all the time, so if you can't find it on there, feel free to find it or make it yourself. Please let us know in that thread when you do so we can add it to the index. Thanks!
If you don't contribute anything constructive to an older game, your post may be labeled pointless and disciplined as such. Also, if it is clear that the game cannot continue because it lacks a proper host or nothing more can be done with the game, resurrecting such games will count as a pointless post.
6/ Do not double post
Do not double post.
... well unless the game requires it, and no, the chat threads do not require this. (Or when the forum glitches.)
7/ We're here when you need us
If you also feel the need to talk, the mods aren't shy to talk to you guys, drop on in if you ever feel a need.
