I have removed the rules for the arcade and shop as those sections have been removed from the forum. Blogs has been slightly updated and will be reviewed further soon.

Old Rules said:
Arcade: Scores in the Arcade should be made only by yourself and must be legitimate and fair. Therefore, any form of cheating that is detected will result in a permanent ban from the Arcade section.

Shop: Do not purchase any Opt Out item for any user other than yourself.

Blogs: The Blog section, while being overall lax in terms of "rules", still has certain guidelines. Do not post more than two blogs in a row, do not post one-word or completely spammy blogs, avoid obnoxious blog titles, and avoid off topic arguments in the blog comments Please keep it clean and don't use timestamps in the past as this makes it difficult to monitor new blog entries.

This rule will be reviewed and updated in the near future.

The following has been added to the rules to clarify some points about Lorule Lounge, Reports, and Text Colour:

Lorule Lounge: Lorule Lounge is a forum where rules for spam posts are relaxed. Other rules, particularly regarding trolling/baiting and insulting/flaming other members still apply there as we don't want it to be used as an excuse to be a place for bullying.

Reports: Reports are taken seriously and that while there may sometimes be a feeling that nothing is done with reports, people should note that infractions/warnings are not publicly announced and each report is discussed by members of the moderation team.

Text Colour: Please refrain from changing the colour of text in posts unless it is to highlight one specific point. This is as different users use different themes and most colours will not look good or easy to read on all of them.

Rules on blogs have been slightly updated:

Blogs: The Blog section, while being overall lax in terms of "rules", still has certain guidelines. Do not post one-word or completely spammy blogs, avoid obnoxious blog titles, and avoid off topic arguments in the blog comments. Please keep it clean and follow all other rules in this section. You may only post one blog every 24 hours and should avoid posting an excessive amount of consecutive blogs. Please see the Blog Rules and Instructions thread for more details on blogs.

Edits have been made regarding ignores now that the force ignore feature is not available in Xenforo 2:

Force-Ignore: Force-Ignores should be treated as a private matter between the admin (currently Jimmu) and the two Force-Ignored users. Do not post publicly about an existing Force-Ignore, a past Force-Ignore or any request you have made or will make for a Force-Ignore.

Ignores: Just as with Force-Ignores, other uUses of the Ignore function should be treated as a private matter between the involved parties. Don't make public posts about Ignores, and if you happen to realise or think someone is ignoring you or another user when you're in a shoutbox discussion do not bring it up.

Due to some vulnerabilities discovered in Xenforo permission options, there have been some permission changes for banned users. As a result, the following has been added to the end of Contesting Unfair or Undeserved Infractions section:

Banned users can contact the staff via the Contact Form.
