  1. INACTIVITY To make sure countries don't become dormant, we will be enforcing active participation. If you do not make a post for 7 days, you will be considered inactive. So, to reiterate, if you want to be considered active - ensure that you don't go seven days straight without making a post. Please remember that these types of posts/comments do not contribute to activity:
    • INVALID posts.
    • Removed posts.
    • META posts.
    • Comments.
  2. VACATIONS/HIATUSES If you need a hiatus from the game due to personal IRL reasons - but you wish to still keep your claim - you are allowed three weeks of leave. Towards the end of your hiatus, you must notify the mods about your situation. The message should state whether you will be able to return to activity, or if you will be duly declaiming. If you cannot return to activity after the three weeks, you will have to declaim. If you fail to update the mods following the three weeks, we will have to assume you cannot return to activity. We reserve the right to make a case-by-case decision on certain larger claims, that may not be in accordance with the regular hiatus rule.
  3. ENFORCEMENT Any violation of the rules or any violation of a mod ruling, decision or instruction will be penalized accordingly (unless stated otherwise in the individual forum):
    • A warning will be issued and the comment/post will be deleted.
    • A 24-hour ban will be issued
    • A week-long ban will be issued
    • A month-long ban will be issued
    • A permanent ban will be issued.
    All punishments and bans are issued at moderator discretion and dealt with accordingly, we strongly encourage reporting any comments or posts in violation of the comment and posts rules outlined below.
  4. General Rules:
    • No racist or sexist speech
    • No abusive speech based on sexual orientation, religion, political affiliation.
    • Don't be homophobic - this includes using “gay”, “queer” pejoratively.
    • Please label NSFW/NSFL images/videos.
    • Don't maliciously use URL shorteners.
    • Don't spur personal attacks.
    • Don't feed trolls.
    • Don't be unnecessarily rude, provocative or vitriolic.
    • Don't post OR ask for personal information.
    • Don't encourage illegal activities.
    • Don't advocate witch hunting.
    • Don't post pornographic material.
    • No religious proselytizing.
    • No spam or advertising other websites.
    • Using alternate accounts (alts) are a cardinal sin and will result in a non-negotiable permanent ban.
    Taking RP or Politics out of RPolitics, to the detriment of the forums or where your behavior reflects poorly on RPolitics will result in disciplinary procedures. What the mods say is final, and we reserve the right to remove content - but you may still appeal. Remember that just because a rule isn’t listed in the Rules does not mean that we cannot enforce it. This means that if we see you doing something wrong, we will punish you, even if it is not explicitly in the Rules (ie: do not be an asshat). If we see this behavior, we will enforce the disciplinary procedures outlined above. Many slurs will get your comments automatically reported to the moderators. These are not rules against swearing, and they're not rules against using out-of-context offensive language affectionately or sarcastically.
  5. Closing Comment These are not the just rules of the game, these are the rules of the website! They apply to every aspect of the website. These rules are subject to change. Any and all changes will be viewable in the News/Announcements section when they are decided, and in the Rules section once they have been implemented. Try not to be too intimidated by our large ruleset. Once you get the hang of it, you might not even notice them at all! If you have any questions, our moderators will be able to assist you, and most of our userbase is extremely approachable+helpful. We hope you enjoy your experience here at RPolitcs :)
