Why are there forum rules?

These forums were set up to serve ATG and for tour-group stuff (which is hidden to non ATG-Members), but the public portion of the forums have basically turned into a large topic-sorted chat room for some of you. Since I am NOT the one hosting the site (and especially because my friend is letting me host for no charge), I need to take precaution and make sure that this site doesn't become too unmanageable, or starts taking up too many system resources.

Here are the general rules for posting, along with the punishments for breaking the rules. The punishments are listed left to right by occurrence-- First occurrences will grant you the leftmost punishments, and each further occurrence will grant you the next one. The number of a type of punishment you can receive is listed by each punishment.

Please keep swearing to a minimum!: Don't try and circumvent the word censor! If we see a swear that isn't on the list, we'll add it.
- You can make sure the swear filter is enabled in your profile settings at the UCP.

No crude humor, no sex jokes, no talking about it or anything related to it. PERIOD:
- Punishment: 1 warning, 1 ban for a day, 1 ban for a week, then permaban.

No derailing threads. THEY MUST STAY ON TOPIC.: The "random" thread may have any topic that follows the rules, but each specific thread MUST stay on topic!
- Punishment: 5 post warnings, 3 forum warnings, 1 ban for a week, then a permaban.

No putting down other forum members for ANY reason:
- Punishment: 3 warnings, 1 ban for a week, then a permaban.

No Racism/Discrimination:
- Punishment: 3 warnings, 1 ban for a week, then a permaban.

No pointless topics!: New topics MUST match the forum they are under. If they are in the random forum, topics must follow the rules, and must have some significant information.
- Punishment: Topic deletion, followed by 3 warnings, 1 ban for a day, 1 ban for a week, then permaban.

Posts MUST have 30 characters: Do not find fancy ways to get around this! If you can't post what you want to say in 30 characters, then don't post!
Limited to 5 smilies per post!

Please use this forum to discuss these rules.

If there was a dislike button for threads, this thread would have 100 dislikes.

ATG is full of fail now.

You could've just made one rule.

''Stop having fun''

Ah, so now I see people get their fun from making other people feel sh*t on this forum.

Think of it this way. Moon decided she was going to be nice after the GHC got ruined and invited us all here. We go along normally. Taco (who isn't in the GHC) comes and starts giving abuse to the original members.

I think, tbh, it's a bit hypocritical. That's like the IRA in N. Ireland years ago. They would come into a town and decide they owned it and beat the crap out of anyone who disagreed. So here, we all come in and give EWE abuse for basically no reason. Not to mention not all of us lead perfect, happy lives like most of you do. Paal has an awesome life, as does Donny and Moon. My life is utter crap. I try my best to be happy, but when I got told I suck a lot of the time and get it at home, you get a bit annoyed, don't you think?

The rule ''No swearing'' is a bit stupid, as there is a swear filter. People can decide whether they see swear words or not by themselves.

The only one I agree with here is no putting down other members. When I bag people out, I'm not being serious, and they shouldn't take it to heart. If that still upsets them, I apologise.
The no swearing rule is total BS, you have the option to turn off the swear filter.

Yeah, I thought the swear rule was a bit excessive.. I changed it a bit.

Now you'll only get in trouble for purposefully trying to bypass the censor.

So we can still swear then? So only people that choose to be able to see them will see them.

Yup, I believe that should be the case, unless I set something up wrong

Wait, who was abusing EWE?
What does the quality of your life have to do with anything? But even so, you can't know that people here have good lives, people might say that but you never know what might go on at home.

I didn't say I was perfect, did I Taco? :P

And @Kris, I take jokes badly after getting 3 years of 'jokes' to me. Some people aren't like you. I'm not trying to get at anyone here, I'm speaking my opinion :P
