It is the belief of the staff here that setting up a list of arbitrary rules and penalties is not an adequate or appropriate way to do things here at Armored Core Legacy. Frankly it’s short sighted and does not allow you, the people of this community, the ability to express yourself the way you should be allowed. Nor does it allow us, the staff, to ability handle situations the way they should always be taken care of. It’s a set of shackles for us all.
Instead, we believe you already know how you should act in a public community setting. That you already have a pretty good idea of what is acceptable, and what is not. To be clear though, actions on the forums with the intention to harm others, expressing or promoting views or a sexist or racist manner are not allowed. Discrimination against people because they are different will catch you with a ban hammer quickly. All are welcome. Discuss, share, agree, argue, swear at each other, compliment, or call each other names. We want to give you the flexibility to express yourself, but don’t cross the line. And if being a functional member of society hasn’t taught you where that line is, we will show you when you’ve gone past it. Go too far, and too often, and you won’t have to worry about it anymore.
