    Old Personality Cafe Forum Rules (Archived)

    Greetings PersonalityCafe Members,

    The PersonalityCafe Forum was created to educate and entertain the user. We have a very good reputation for possessing a comfortable setting and we want to take every step to protect this reputation. To do this, we have concocted a list of rules below that will make the forum clean, fun, and safe.

    *Note* These rules are subject to change. It is the responsibility of the individual to check it for updates.


    1. Do Not Make Personal Attacks
    Posts that serve no purpose other than to flame users annihilate the quality of discussion. Do not make personal attacks. You may critique or disdain argument and opinion posted by users, but you may not extend that method to maligning the users themselves. Do not troll or purposefully attempt to disrupt discussion in threads. Do not harass or bully other members, this includes "type-bullying" which is the persistent and unsolicited public questioning of another member's type when they have not expressed an interest.

    2. No Spamming
    Do not post copies of the same thread, the same thread to multiple subforums, or copy the same post to multiple threads. Avoid making empty "bump" posts or necroposting (bumping very old threads). Please refrain from appending ASCII logos, macros, memes or other taglines (manual signatures) to each of your posts. Never repost a thread that has been closed or deleted by a moderator.Reposting deleted posts is also not allowed.

    3. No Advertising
    Advertising bots, propaganda accounts, accounts used for evangelizing, and persons who register with the intention of using this forum for SEO or link-dropping will be banned without warning. We ask that other registered users also refrain from engaging in casual or commercial ad campaigns upon the forum.

    Advertising and discussion of chat rooms, such as tinychat, Skype and Facebook groups ect, is not allowed on PersonalityCafe. This includes the use of private messages, blogs, visitor message walls and forum posts for this purpose.

    4. Do Not Register Duplicate Accounts
    Each user is allowed one account. Please note that users who attempt to register multiple accounts may be placed onto the forum's blacklist automatically, which can have the effect of suspending all account function for each account associated with that user. Purposefully assuming multiple identities (sockpuppetry) will not be tolerated. Retiring an account and reopening a new account is viewed the same as creating multi-accounts and will not be allowed. Anybody who's retired an account that would like it to be reinstated can make such a request via the contact us link at the bottom of the Personality Cafe homepage. If you create more than one account, the new account may be merged with your primary account, or the new account will be banned.

    5. Respect User Privacy

    Do not post the contents of private messages, chatroom/skype messages ect on the open forum, or share them with anyone without the permission of all parties involved. Additionally, we ask that you not reveal personal details about other users without their permission. This specifically includes acts like the posting of addresses or telephone numbers.

    6. Post With Quality In Mind
    Chitchat and goofing around are welcome, but try to keep it to the appropriate threads and subforums and don't bombard those users who do not wish to participate. No nudity drawn or otherwise. Posts will be edited at moderators discretion

    7. Post Legibly
    Please do not make posts in ALL CAPS, custom-format posts in a manner that breaks up the visual continuity of the thread, or otherwise make posts difficult for users to read. Post in English (we can not moderate other languages), use paragraphs in extensive posts, and avoid '1337 sp33k' or 'chatspeak' (substituting u for you, 2 for too, etc) altogether.

    8. Use Tasteful Customizations

    Offensive, disruptive, or poorly formatted usernames, custom text, avatars and signatures will be mollified or removed at the administration's discretion. Custom avatars must be a max of 200x200 pixels without the use of transparency or space-filling borders.

    9. Leaving the forum
    Kindly leave contact information on your blog if you feel the need to leave the forum. Farewell threads are not allowed.

    10. Editing/Deleting Posts and Threads
    You can't edit post after 24 hours of posting, and you can never delete posts. This is to help keep the flow of conversation from getting derailed. You can't delete threads, and threads will not be deleted ( by admins or mods) except under extreme circumstances. This is a public forum, so please use discretion when making posts and starting threads.

    11. Have Fun!

    This is of course optional but like we stated, the goal of this forum is to educate and entertain the user.
    12. No Discriminatory Remarks

    Discriminatory remarks are unacceptable. This includes racism, sexism, offensive remarks about (or against) religion* or gender identity, physical attributes (size, height, etc.), and homophobic remarks. I'd like to take this a step further and coin a new term called typism. We will not tolerate broad generalizations and/or individual attacks that are meant to degrade by type. Joking is acceptable but should a member take offense they should ask that line of joking to stop. If it does not cease at that point, corrective actions will be taken.

    Definition typism (adj. n.):

    1. A pejorative where a person is denied a service or opportunity based on their personality type.
    2. A form of discrimination and an attempt to explain, validate and excuse their negative behavior.
    3. Assigning negative or insulting stereotypes based on typology with little to no verification.

    * - This refers specifically to insults or degradations against groups or specific members of any religion or non-believers (or those who do not subscribe to any label). This rule does not apply to the ideas of any religion or non-belief, and as such, debating those or even speaking against those ideas is fair game.

    13. Complaints About Staff Decisions Should Be Brought To TreeBob
    If you have a question, comment, or complaint about a decision made by staff, please send a private message to @TreeBob instead of posting about it. Issues should be resolved by the parties involved, not the entirety of the community. Messaging staff directly allows us to deal directly with the problem.

    If a post is made that breaks the following rules, it will likely be deleted. In more serious cases, users can be warned privately or infracted (warned publicly) about the post. If the behavior persists, or if the user is here primarily to break rules, they may be banned.

    14. Moderating policy
    Threads and/or posts may be deleted at the moderators discretion. Moderators are always expected to use their discretion in the accordance with forum rules.
