    This is the latest version of the rules.

    In quote:

    "We value the human ability to judge higher than static rules, since these will never be flexible nor precise. The following are guidelines, you are asked to follow."

    § 1: Behave Properly

    § 2: Relevant Topic: Correctly titled and located.
    § 2.1: No Attention Seeking

    § 3: Relevant Content
    § 3.1: No Spam
    § 3.2: No Advertising
    § 3.3: Nothing illegal

    Below you can read, As a starting base, how we, the admins, interpret the rules.
    Notice, that this interpretation might be subject to change, from time to time.

    § 1: Behave Appropriately
    § 1.a It is requested that you speak in a polite tone to other members, even if that person is breaking this rule. If this is the case, then approach an admin, explain the situation, and let admins handle the matter. Stay away from the forum and commenting on the issue if you have nothing useful to say.

    § 1.b Personal conversations and situations are handled via mail and not the forum. If you have no possible way of making a constructive comment to a subject, please do not comment on the issue at hand.

    § 1.c If you are having a bad day, or are generally in a bad mood, please stay off the forum until you have settled down.

    § 1.d Treat new members and those new to the forums with respect, kindness, and leniency. A bad experience may mean that a player may not return to the forums and may be forced away from the game. New players are likely to ask many previously answered questions on the forum, please give them the respect in answering appropriately. If the answer can be found in the help files, refer to the link directly.
