From the moment you join this group, you have a responsibility to treat other members with respect. That means no insulting, no rudeness, no trolling
and above all, no offending! If you joined this group just to troll, then I suggest you leave before you get blocked
This is a group for 13+ people (seeing as the game is rated teens). Consequently, I quite frankly do not want to see anything that should be for adult's eyes only. If you submit anything which breaks this rule, you will be temporarily suspended from submitting!
I've now set up folders (which I will come to explain in a minute). As you guys have permission to submit pieces to the gallery, myself and the rest of the admins do not want to spend hours putting stuff into the correct folders. Submit to the correct folder, or your work will be denied!
This is not a general FFXIII-2 fan club-this is a fan club for Caius, so we want to actually see Caius in any submitted works! It doesn't matter if he doesn't have a big part in whatever you're submitting, but your work CAN and WILL be denied if he is completely absent from the piece. You've been warned!
This is a temporary rule until at least 2 months after FFXIII-2 is released in Europe, but it's still a rule nevertheless - keep the group spoiler-free!
Anyone who breaks this rule will have their comment removed and receive a warning.
We didn't want to make too many rules - after all, too many rules to enforce would wear us admins out, and too many rules to stick to would probably make you guys fed up of being in the group!The Three Strike System
As a way to enforce these rules, myself and the admins have set up a Three Strike System.
It's almost as simple as it sounds! It works like the following:First Strike:
This is just a verbal warning, which myself or another admin will send to you via note. This occurs after either a few minor offences, or a first serious offence.Second Strike:
This is a temporary ban, which will last from anything between a week and a month, depending on how serious the cause of the ban is. This occurs if a few more minor offences occur following a warning, or if a serious offence occurs after a warning. Third Strike:
Permanent ban. If you get a third strike, it's gonna be VERY highly unlikely that you'll be taken off the ban list, so don't get to this stage if you want to stay in the group! This occurs if a few more minor offences occur after the temporary ban, if a serious offence occurs after a temporary ban, or if you've just joined to troll.
To make it fair on you guys, if you receive a warning but don't break any rules for the next month and a half, you'll be back to no strikes. If you receive a temporary ban, it'll take a month and a half to go back to first strike, and another month and a half to go back to no strikes.
Also, if someone receives a strike, we will keep note of it in the admin area, so don't think that we'll just forget!
So now that we've sorted out the rules and how we enforce them, here are the wonderful people that make up the admin team!
