    Official Forum Rules:

    • Bans
      • Shoutbox -The shoutbox is not the place for bans, if you wish to discuss a ban, it is not to be done publicly, I would say don't do it privately but I and other admins would never be able to enforce it.
      • Ban threads - Unless you were directly involved with the ban in question, please leave your thoughts and opinions out of it, if you feel like discussing a ban and want your voice heard but you weren't involved at the time of the ban, send me a pm over forum. If I find it relevant I will leave an anonymous comment on the thread. The only exception to this is if you are directly mentioned by the banned player or an admin - however make sure that whatever you say is related to the ban.
      • No arguments within ban appeals, people that engage within an argument will have their comments deleted.
    • Shoutbox
      • General - There are several things that do NOT go into the shoutbox
        • anything NSFW does not go into the shoutbox, this includes: links, images, text. You may use euphemisms but no further.
        • Ban discussion
        • Player discussion
        • It would also be preferred if nothing that could lead to an argument is posted - unless it is obvious that it is fake and between friends. No harrasing or bullying other members, no racism or any other discrimination.
      • Discussions on bans, slays, or any other admin duty that may pull in controversy, if you wish to discuss this, either start a thread in Ban Requests and Private Issues or start a conversation with an admin.
      • Extended conversations should move to private message, if you and another user are conversing - consider it best to move to private rather than have your entire conversation via shoutbox. Shoutbox is used for communicating quickly with multiple people. Not a rule, just a consideration.
    • Ban Requests and Private Issues
      • Unless you are requesting a ban on another player this is not the place to discuss a ban that another player may be serving, leave that for them to make a ban appeal.
      • If you are having problems with a certain admin - start a conversation with a Community Manager. If you are having a problem with a Community Manager, start a conversation with Rainbow/Mitsu.
    • Do not backseat moderate
      • There is a reason why admins are admins, we have undergone trial to see if we are fit. Alongside that, if nothing has been said by an admin given 24 hours of happening unless its within the shoutbox then likely it doesn't need to be discussed or already has been via private message. Now its not that we don't appreciate you trying to help but regular members posting on another regular members thread or other is likely to just induce an argument. We as admin try to make sure that what we say can't be taken the wrong way and try to base any of our reasoning on fact and then from that opinion, not opinion and then draw fact.
      • Openly argue with administrators - If you believe an admin is in the wrong, send them a pm or someone higher, a Community Manager or Owner.
    • Threads
      • Respected/Admin Applications - These applications are the one area where it should be stressed that banter or memes are kept to a minimum. There are plenty of other places for fun on the forums and we really don't need a page of idle conversations on applications. Please be mindful that it is the applicants thead and not a public thread. Post your vote with reasoning (optional for +1's) and so long as it isn't abusive, prejudicial or breaking the rules it will count. We understand multiple messages sometimes cannot be helped when the applicant has forgotten to include something important. Also please do not get into discussions about the applicant on the application thread, there are plenty of private channels in teamspeak or private messages on the forums. If you are going to fake -1 an application, you must use a colour that is different from the background for your actual positive vote. If you fail to do so henceforth, your comment will be deleted and disregarded.
      • Bump threads - Please do not necro bump a thread, if it is older than a month old UNLESS it is a thread that critically needs revival OR can easily be restarted, don't.
      • Thread Placement - Please post threads in the correct section, a waste of our time and a pain to keep things organised when threads are not within the correct thread. If you have something totally unrelated to TTT, please post it in forum: Games and Off Topic. Threads posted elsewhere should have a direction, so as to not be a pointless discussion filled with spam.
    • Respected/Admin Applications
      • Leave pointless discussions out of these threads
      • -1 comments must have reasoning
      • Fake minus comments are allowed but the actual vote must be clearly visible OR your reply will be deleted
      • If you are denied, you must wait 3 weeks before reapplying.
    • Off-limit discussions anywhere within the Forum
    Do NOT:​
    • Flame or Insult other members
    • Post others personal identification information (i.e. E-Mail, Phone Number, Name, Address, etc.)
    • Bump Threads older than one month unless absolutely essential or the thread is easily revived - suggestions are not easily revived threads.
    • Derail a thread's topic
    • Post links to malicious sites
    • Post Spam (i.e. 1 like = 1 prayer, rickrolls, lols etc.) or Re-post Closed, Modified or Deleted Content
    • Publicly post or otherwise share PMs with other users unless you have the express permission of the sender to do so. PMs are intended to be just that - Private.
    • Bribe Administrators in an attempt to get them to do your bidding. This will result in a permanent ban to your Forum account and on the TTT server.
    • NSFW Content (Porn, Gore etc.)
    • Threats of Harassment or Violence (Even as a Joke)
    • Racism & Discrimination
    • Cheating or Hacking
