These are just some general pointers in response to a few threads people have posted, as we accept that some of the things we don't allow are not clear. This is by no means exhaustive (and we reserve the right to change it as necessary) but we trust people will use their heads a little and realize what is and isn't appropriate. Cheers.
We operate largely on common sense and the belief that our users know where the line is, and to not cross it. That means no trolling (at least no BAD trolling), no excessive flaming, no spam or otherwise pointless topics outside of Off-topic - topics must serve some useful purpose (and telling everyone what rare you just found isn't useful, sorry).
No links to obviously inappropriate or illegal stuff, e.g. porn, piracy. Discussion of these is however fine, so long as no links are given to material. Swearing is ok, but use it sparingly. Dropping the F-bomb every other word isn't particularly funny or intelligent.
PSUPedia is neutral
No making topics advertising your guild, community group, player-run event or player matchup, or any items you are selling or looking to buy. PSUPedia is a neutral site based on objective information, we are not a hub for players to meet up (although a limited sense of community is inevitable). We suggest you try other sites such as the official boards and PSO-World, both of which have dedicated sections for trading and meeting other players. You are allowed to advertise such things in your forum signature, or on your wiki user page (or user talk page).
Creating a topic to link to another site is, however, fine if there's a good reason for it (e.g. linking to a news post on another site to create a topic for discussion).
We don't care if you do it, and discussion of the concept in general is fine, but no asking or posting information on glitches, hacks, cheats, ways to bypass a game's security, and programs that can be used to cheat, unless the game is strictly offline and has no online component. If you have information on a cheating method for PSU, send a ticket to Sega.

Ok, guys, we need to have a talk. A talk about posting etiquette. A talk about the English language. A fun talk.
Do not type like a lobotomized chimpanzee.
What this means
Other things to keep in mind
If any of this is unclear, feel free to contact me or another staff member for clarification. Thank you. This concludes the talk. Class dismissed.
