Rules

The Captains Rule: Our site, our rules. You don't have to like it; you do have to accept it. These rules apply to all of our forums and also to PMs and our discord channel.


1. No porn or shock sites anywhere on the site. This includes fully exposed female nipple, balls, rectum, vagina, or penis. Since there's no way to disable them, avatars must be unambiguously work safe: no girls bouncing on cocks, no you-getting-laid, and no chicks nearly naked.
2. No multiaccounting (this includes letting a banned friend of yours access your account). Also, no proxy IP addresses. We'll just assume that you're trying to evade a ban and ban you. If for some reason you have special circumstances, we may make some limited exceptions on the no proxy rule. PM an admin first though.
3. Do not post personal identifying information of yourself or anyone else. Full name and the city that you live in is fine. Avoid anything more detailed than that. Also, never share your account password with anyone.
4. Post your threads in the right forum, please. This especially goes for Yugioh and Politics.
5. No autoplaying movies, audio, etc. in sigs or posts. There are some limited exceptions for Crazy Spam Kingdom, but even here, don't go overboard.
6. Don't complain about receiving neg rep. Rep is just a number. Also, don't go through someone's post history and neg all of their posts because they pissed you off.
7. No personal threats (or threats toward the site itself), whether it is to physically harm someone, hack them, etc. Also, do not use the personal message feature of DGZ or discord to harass people. If someone tells you to stop PMing them, you must stop.
8. This goes for newer members: We expect you to be your own person, but we also expect you to make an effort to understand DGz's culture and customs on a basic level in order to maintain a healthy community. If you continually fail to do so by instigating fights, bashing the site/mods, or ignoring advice from staff on how to not cause trouble within the community, you can be forced into a mandatory lurking period to observe the correct way to do things.
9. Keep sigs reasonable in size. No more than two images, and no ridiculous image sizes.
10. No advertising your website or fishing for social media follows. It's fine to talk about upcoming tournaments or link to articles. But no, "Hey guys check out my website," or, "Subscribe to me on youtube." You may place one text link to a non-monetized social media account of yours in your signature if you would like, but that is the only exception to this rule.

11. Along the same lines as rule #10, no encouraging people to leave the site or not participate in discussion, even if you are not necessarily advertising another site. Examples (not intended as an exhaustive list) include statements such as: "stop posting and leave", "this site isn't for you, try pojo", "DGZ is dead", "[insert other Yugioh site/group here] is better than DGZ", "DGZ's yugioh forums are terrible, don't post there", "mafia universe is a better place to play mafia", etc. However, constructive criticism is fine. Statements like "DGZ would be better if..." are fine.

12. Do not attempt to use DGZ to scam or defraud its members. This includes both making trades or wagering contracts with no intent of upholding your end as well as selling/trading fake cards or products.

 

Punishments

Note: In the language below, a "ban" refers to the inability to access the site, whereas a "suspension" refers to the inability to make posts yourself but the ability to read posts of others.

 

Rule 1: IP ban for actual porn/shock sites. For avatars that aren't porn but are possibly not safe for work, we'll give you a warning and tell you to change it.
Rule 2: For multiaccounting to evade a ban or to cheat in mafia/warring/tournaments, we'll ban your new account and IP ban you. For multiaccounting not to evade a ban, we'll ban your new account, and ban the old account for a week (unless you're an old member who made a new account because you forgot your password). For proxy, we'll give you a warning and remind you not to use a proxy. If you refuse, we'll IP ban you.
Rule 3: If it's of yourself, we'll just give you a warning and remind you of the rule. If it's of someone else, it'll be a 1-week ban for the first offense, with length possibly increasing for additional offenses.
Rule 4: Warning on first offense, 1-day suspension for second offense, suspension length doubles for each additional offense.
Rule 5: Warning on first offense, 1-day suspension for second offense, suspension length doubles for each additional offense.
Rule 6: Warning on first offense, 1-day suspension for second offense, suspension length doubles for each additional offense.
Rule 7: 1-week ban all the way up to IP ban, depending on the severity and credibility of the threat/harassment.
Rule 8: Warning on first offense, and you will be directed to http://duelistgroundz.com/index.php?/topic/168861-i-dont-understand-dgz-and-no-one-likes-me/ to learn from your mistakes. After that, it will be a week-long suspension for any additional offenses.
Rule 9: We'll give you a warning and tell you to change it.
Rule 10: We'll remove your advertisement + warning on first offense, 1-day suspension for second offense, suspension length doubles for each additional offense.

Rule 11: Warning on first offense, 1-day suspension for second offense, suspension length doubles for each additional offense. 

Rule 12: Permanent ban until the amount scammed for is repaid in full to the victim.

 

Other: If at any point, you accumulate 3 warnings through some combination of rule violations within 2 months, we may suspend you for a short period (1-7 days).

that is a time where using the "report post to moderator" button is totally valid.

Rule 11:

Don't post things you found funny when stoned. They're not funny to sober people. And no there is no drug forum appearing in the near future to accommodate your vices.

i shit all over this rule.

So no GIF pics? And I am used to society around me being like the way this site is, but I tend to keep the peace and become friends with all who are POSITIVE. If any "high and mighty" member dis me for no reason, I will blank out. All have been warned. And gratsi on being the second most popular site.

Hi guys! How's everyone? I'm new to dgz and wanted to say hi


Little bit more reading would show that this is not an introduction thread. Make your own.
