Board rules

These rules are disclosed to clarify the various responsibilities of all community members here on Ye Olde Fantasy Forums. They shall be adhered to by everyone to ensure that our board runs smoothly and provides a fun and productive experience for all of our community members and visitors.

  1. I reserve the right to remove any content at any time for any reason. This website reflects on my personal and professional life and I will not tolerate anything that may cause me trouble down the line. (Basically, don't do anything illegal, discriminatory, or inflammatory. Just don't be dumb.) #
  2. Do not share or link to illegal content. You may discuss such content so long as it is not connected to this forum or links to it in any way. Again, this website reflects on my personal and professional self and I will not tolerate any illegal actions. If you're unsure whether what you're doing is illegal or not, don't do it. #
  3. Do not spam. Use your best judgement on this one. Try not to repeat topics that have already been opened, just use the pre-existing threads. Necro-ing is OK. Consider whether or not the topic you are choosing to post will generate meaningful discussion. If not, save it for another time. #
  4. All non-fantasy material goes in off-topic. Use your discretion regarding questionable material (i.e. Anime, Science-Fiction, Minecraft, My Little Pony). #
  5. All creative writing is encouraged here. While we primarily write fantasy, we welcome writers of all backgrounds and interests. #
  6. Do not seek critique without making at least one meaningful critique of another person's work. The key word here is meaningful. Check out our critique guidelines if you're curious for an example of good critiquing behavior. #
  7. Do not withhold criticism. Do remember to be helpful. A healthy critique should encourage the positive aspects of the writer's work while providing alternative suggestions to the negatives. #
  8. Writers, take your lumps. Don't argue with critiquers. You may disagree and push back a little bit, but remember that you are being provided with a service and (generally) other people are better judges of your work than you are. #
