The Board rules apply here like they do everywhere else.
Special Rules for the Player Intro Section:
- Intro threads should contain the name of the player being introduced in the title. The player name may be added by the moderator at any time.
- "Pwning the Frontpage" is no longer allowed! This means do not post in multiple threads just to have your name as the last poster on the entire page.
- The primary purpose of these threads is for an Ikariam player to introduce themselves. If the player who started the thread does not post in it for 30 days, the thread may be archived by the moderator.
- If an intro thread has been archived, and the player wishes to have a thread again, they may either request the moderator to move their thread back to active status, or start a new thread. Players may have only one active intro thread at a time.
- Threads reaching 1,000 replies will have the larger part of the thread archived. This is necessary for the smooth running of the boards.
Not a rule, but merely a note. As the purpose of these threads is for players to introduce themselves and talk to the Ikariam community, please be considerate, and make sure posts concern the original poster and do not overwhelm an intro thread with side conversations.
Reminder of a few things:
No Smiley Spam - The excessive posting of smileys, i.e. posting more than 10 smileys in one post, including those contained in quoted text.
No trolling (posting with the intention of baiting other users into an emotional response or to disrupt normal on-topic discussion.) No flaming (posting deliberately "hostile messages".) No vulgarity or inappropriate words or images (curse words, expressions that offends good taste/manners, posting or linking inappropriate images.
If you see something that is inappropriate, please report it and it will be dealt with accordingly as soon as possible.
