Star Wars Exodus Community Rules
  • The Golden Rule
    Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. In other words, be nice.
  • Respect the Moderators & Admins
    Do not fight the staff or administration; their rule is law. It is their job to keep the board civil and running smoothly. Making public complaints regarding any administrative, enforcement, or other Moderator/Admin will not be tolerated. If you've have an issue, please private message (PM) a Moderator or Administrator.
  • Restricted Topics of Discussion
    The following topics are restricted, meaning they are forbidden to be talked about outside of the Restricted Topics Subforum. Anyone who discusses these topics will be warned, at the discretion of the Mod/Admin team. Three warnings will lead to a ban.
    • Religion
    • Politics
    • Evolution
    • Abortion
    If you would like to discuss these topics, please head to the Restricted Topics Subforum registration thread and make a request there.
  • Mature Content
    While Mature content (ESRB Ratings) is allowed, we ask that any relevant warnings be included in the thread title. For example, if an RP contained excessive foul language, we ask that you include an appropriate warning, e.g. "Dun Moch: Tribulations *strong language*". Content rated below Mature need not contain warnings. Content rated Adult-Only or NC-17 should be kept elsewhere.
  • Moderator Terms
    Moderators serve a lifetime appointment; there is no set term-limit. However, the community may remove a Moderator via a community-wide vote of no-confidence. If this vote passes by a two-thirds majority, the Moderator is removed and a new one is elected by the community. If a Moderator chooses to step down voluntarily, a new Moderator will be chosen by vote. The site administrators will conduct all votes.

Story Forum Guidelines and Rules

These are the rules and guidelines we'd like you to follow when posting in this forum. Specifically, aside from the standard content guidelines (warnings in your title, etc.), there are no guidelines! This forum is a free-form area where you can post fanfiction or stand-alone RPs that do not fit in any of the other forums. The RPs found here are not interconnected (usually) in anyway.

If you want to RP and uber Sith Lord who wields fourteen quintuple-bladed lightsabers and owns 3846197 Super Star Destroyers, go for it! If you want to RP out a "What if?" scenario where the Rebels failed to blow up the Death Star, this is the place for it.

That being said, there are still some guidelines. They are:

Open & Closed Threads
  • Open: Anyone is welcome to hop into the thread without express permission. Feel free to start posting, provided your posts fit within the context of the thread.
  • Closed: Closed threads are, well, closed to the public; they are generally invite only. If you are interested in joining, please PM or otherwise contact the thread's author before posting IC in the thread.
  • No Label: Sometimes threads are labelled neither Open nor Closed; in this case, it's best to inquire within the thread with an OOC post, or ask for permission in the thread's OOC thread.
Content Warnings
  • If your thread contains Mature content, please provide a brief warning in the thread title. For example, if your thread contains graphic violence, it would be prudent to warn your readers: Dun Moch: Shadows of Light *Mature Content - Violence*. We prohibit any content that would be construed as NC-17 or Adult Only, such as erotica from being posted on the forums.
