Rules

Straight-Faced Gaming is focused on maintaining an intelligent and academic video game discussion community. These are optimal rules for such a community, and while they may seem unorthodox for outsiders, the Straight-Faced Gaming Staff is sure that they will prove successful.

Obviously, staff members will be treated with leniency.

There are three tiers of offenses, the lower numbered tiers representing greater offenses.
Read about these offenses in the following posts:

Third Tier Offenses
Second Tier Offenses
First Tier Offenses

How the offenses work:
Third Tier Offenses
If you commit a third tier offense, you will be notified for your misconduct. Continuing to act in this manner will result in a ban.

Second Tier Offenses
A second tier offense of any kind will result in a warning. Two warnings in a month will result in a ban.

First Tier Offenses
A first tier offense will result in an immediate ban.

If you break the rules and are banned, see this thread

Lack of respect for authority - The Straight-Faced Gaming Staff's power over this forum is absolute. Insulting or even taunting the staff shall not be permitted.

Lack of taste - Admitting to liking degenerate games (Call of Duty clones, JRPGs, "art games") is not acceptable.

Spam - Spamming is not acceptable.

Malicious content - Illegal content is not acceptable.
