After about a month of collaboration and writing, the staff and I have created a new thread for the rules. This new thread re-unifies the rules of in-game and forums. We decided for the sake of easier reading and formatting, the unified thread makes sense.
There are a few changes - please read the new rule thread! We have added and clarified specific actions that are deemed a violation of the rules. There will be a roll out of a new ban reason format. Instead of making a ban reason with "Inappropriate comments, blah blah blah" we will begin listing the section, rule number, and sub-number of that violation in question.
Translation: Section S: Rules 5(2) -
Rule 5) Do not advertise third-party games, sites, or other places not related to The Powder Toy.
(2) Unauthorized or unofficial community gathering places, such as Discord, are prohibited.
Meaning the user has advertised an unauthorized gathering place, such as Discord.
We wanted to make a clear format for the rules and the ban reason. Hopefully these rules will clear up any confusion the old rule thread may have created. Again, review the new rules thread. If you have any question or comments, leave them in this thread. Feedback is appreciated!
Maybe a rule to prevent excessive use of formatting, like this?

Now, at the risk of bringing the wrath of admins upon me, but due to past experiences I have to strongly oppose the last rule.
The "I am an admin, I can do what I want" rule. (Unless I misread it in the original post)
I have seen multiple times that this sort of rule seems harmless at first and then becomes internet dictatorship.
I usually would not use such strong language on here, since TPT has not angered me, but I will do that now:Kill that rule. It leads to nothing but abuse and will ultimately kill this game and its community.
