PocketMonsters Rules

DO NOT ask for illegal files. You will be banned if you do so.
  1. Upon joining the PocketMonsters, a url linking to this rule list is posted. It is the responsibility of all users joining to read and follow these rules. Ignorance is not an excuse.
  2. PocketMonsters is for Pokemon related conversation and discussion, not an illegal file leeching request place. Do not request files. You will be banned for requesting or asking for information or links.
  3. The OPs (the people with the "@","~" and "&" by their names) are the final interpreters of the rule and clarifications.
  4. Conduct yourself in a mature, respectful and courteous manner. Don't be annoying.
  5. Please limit your use of profanity.
  6. The official language for the PocketMonsters is English. Please use English at all times. Japanese and other languages are are only used when referring to Pokemon in those regions, but please limit most conversations to English.
  7. When posting comments, use proper English sentence structure. No slang or IM chat acronyms. Also be sure not to post short one liners.
  8. No whining about policies.
  9. No insults, being rude, name-calling, starting fights, or general picking on people.
  10. No trolling will be tolerated.
  11. No racism or bigotry will be tolerated.
  12. No bashing people's religion-of-choice -- freedom of religion means ANY religion (including none at all).
  13. Please keep sex talk to a minimum. This is a Pokemon related site and there are many younger aged visitors.
  14. No ban evasion or other circumventions of rules.
  15. No offensive nicks. If an administrator asks you to change your nick, then it's considered offensive.
  16. No telling an administrator how to do their jobs.
  17. DO NOT TYPE IN ALL CAPS, IT'S ANNOYING AND THE EQUIVALENT OF SHOUTING. You will be kicked for doing so.
  18. No Spamming/Flooding - We define flooding as 2 or more messages consecutively. We also consider messages with no content or advertising as spam.
  19. No begging for ADMIN - If you ask to become administrator, you WILL be banned. If you really want to become an admin, you must prove to us over an extended period of time that you are responsible and reliable. Otherwise, DON'T EVEN ASK!
  20. No Excessive Name Changes.
  21. When quoting other users, if your response is shorter than the quote you are referencing, truncate the quote block to be more specific with your response and add additional information to your response.
  22. COLORS - Please limit your usage of colors and other specific commands (including bold, underline and reverse codes).
  23. When chatting about episode spoilers, please use the following format when posting a message: Spoiler [Ctrl+k]1,1 <text message>. This allows users that have seen the current episode to chat and not spoil it for those that have not.
  24. No unauthorized scripts. All scripts must be approved by an administrator.
  25. No cloned accounts.
  26. No Romaji Debates! All forms of Romaji are allowed and correct! (And no, this will not degrade to Animal Farm...)
  27. Pocket Monsters/Pokemon ROMS, Music, Videos or ISO's are not hosted. Do not ask for these or link to them. This also includes linking to media hosting sites like MegaUpload and YouTube. Also, do not use !list/@find/xdcc list to search for them.
  28. Posting logs without permission is against the rules.
  29. Don't complain. If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. Users that are annoying and complain will be banned.

  1. Do not post excessively low resolution pictures. If the picture is too blurry, pixelated, or the picture size is too small, there is no point posting it.
  2. No Spamming/Flooding - We define flooding as more than 2 posts that are of a similar nature and are not part of the same thread. Post related images as reply's. Do not spam non related websites.
  3. Credit images - If an image is from another website or is not your own work, post the URL and authors information as part of your initial comment. This will save people from asking about it at a later time and will give the authors the proper credit they deserve.
