Forum Rules
#1
These rules apply to all members in all sections of Mafiarena.  Mafiarena general policy covers, but is not limited to, the following:

1. Illegal Activity

Mafiarena is not to be used for or in conjunction with any illegal activities. Mafiarena is not liable or responsible for any user activity that may violate any national, international, or local laws or ordinances. It is your responsibility to know the laws that pertain to you and to act lawfully when using Mafiarena.
You also may not encourage others to engage in, advertise, or promote illegal activities.

This includes, but is not limited to, websites that feature content that infringes any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or other proprietary rights of any party.

2. Pornographic Material

Do not post or link to pornography or pornographic websites. Pornography includes posting images with obvious nudity, exposed genitals, or female nipples. That includes indirect links, photos, or videos with the pornography linked or displayed. Requesting sexually explicit pictures from other users are also prohibited.

If a thread is tagged as NSFW ("Not Safe for Work") in its title, we may allow members to post non-pornographic images of persons who are wearing very little clothing. Those images may be removed at a moderator's discretion and will be held accountable for all other Mafiarena rules including Mafiarena user's privacy.

3. Gratuitously Violent and Disturbing Material

We do not allow gory or otherwise disturbing material to be shown on Mafiarena. This includes, but is not limited to, graphically violent images of injuries, dead bodies, car crashes, suicide, executions, and murder.

If a thread is tagged as NSFW ("Not Safe for Work") in its title, we may allow members to post links to reputable sources that include such material. Links to gory material may be removed at a moderator's discretion even if they have a NSFW tag.

4. Violations of Privacy

You may not violate other users' privacy. Under no circumstances may you spread personal information regarding other users without their express and clear permission - under no circumstances may you share personal information regarding a minor (unless if you're that minor guardian). Personal information includes, but is not limited to, users' names, emails, and addresses.

Do not ask or give your password to another user unless if an account is a hydra (joint account). For hydra accounts, all the users involved must also make a separate unique account.

5. Hate Speech and Slurs

Do not engage in bigotry. Do not act with prejudice, use hate speech, or show bigotry towards classes or groups of people. This includes the casual use of slurs especially when directed at other users, even if not naming them specifically. This includes offensive "memes".

Any kind of text or media that is posted to hurt a user or a group of them is not allowed. This includes but is not limited to all sort of slurs which involve a person's ethnicity or national origin, culture discrimination, religious discrimination, gender discrimination, orientation discrimination, and sex discrimination.

Mafiarena’s policy against purposeful hate speech is extremely harsh. We will not allow any user to offend another user on purpose or repeatedly. 

Mafiarena reserves the right to take any necessary actions (including but not limited to modifying the content and issuing a ban) against users who break the CoC (Mafiarena Code of Conducts) and are trying to hurt others.

6. Harassment:

Do not harass other users in any manner. You are not allowed to contact people who don’t wish to speak with you. You’re not allowed to gossip about other Mafiarena users. You’re not allowed to post offensive text or media about other users. Mafiarena reserves the right to take any necessary actions (including but not limited to modifying the content and issuing a ban) against users who break the CoC and are trying to hurt others.

7. Spam

Do not spam on Mafiarena. You may not upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available any unsolicited or unauthorized advertising*. This includes promotional materials, "junk mail," "spam," and other forms of solicitation. Mafiarena reserves the right to modify or delete your posts if they are violating any of the Mafiarena rules.

* Advertising off-site mafia games are completely acceptable. Any other sort of advertising must be done under Mafiarena administrators supervision.

8. Gambling

You may not gamble or invite others to gamble on Mafiarena unless if its promoted by Mafiarena itself. This means you may not wager money or something of material value on an event with an uncertain outcome if it’s not mentioned otherwise. This includes any wagers on outcomes unrelated to mafia games. 

9. Inappropriate Avatars or Signatures

Avatars and signatures should follow all the same rules that apply to posts. For example, any avatars or signatures that contain (or link to) images that are pornographic, gory or discriminatory in nature will be removed by a moderator. Our definition of pornographic avatars is not necessarily limited to pictures of persons with no clothing, but can also extend to pictures of persons with very little clothing. Additionally, note that any unsolicited or unauthorized advertisements are also disallowed for signatures and avatars.

10. Inappropriate Usernames

Usernames should follow all the same rules that apply to posts. Usernames which reference to pornographic, gory, racist or hateful material or the usernames which are in any way inappropriate based on other mafiarena rules are not allowed.

Usernames that create or break tags, or usernames that are links to other sites, are all illegal. For example, an account named "[vote]" is disallowed, and so is an account named "Google.com". We reserve the right to also ban or change all types of problematic or illegal usernames.

11. Hotlinking

Hotlinking means embedding an image on Mafiarena by linking to the same image on another website, thereby using that site's bandwidth. This can incur malware warnings if linked to a disreputable source. We do not want to be associated with malware warnings and you will be held accountable for triggering such warnings. If you are unsure whether or not you are hotlinking or potentially incurring a malware warning, you should re-upload it to a dedicated image-hosting site (Photobucket, imgur, imgbb, etc.). Mafiarena might delete your rule-violating images without warning.

12. Fraud and Exploits

Mafiarena users are not allowed to cheat or abuse any glitch on the system. Mafiarena will log every action user take on the website or the discord server. Mafiarena has the right to take action against any sort of cheating or abusing the system.

If you notice a bug please contact us or mention it in the feedback section.

>> Mafiarena reserves the right to add or modify the general rules at any time. Any changes to the rules will be announced appropriately beforehand.
