PC'S POKÉMON ONLINE SERVER RULES
The old rules were stuck in 2009. Even though the rules themselves are mostly the same, some old favorites like the "no Magikarp jokes" have been removed and the tone is hopefully a little less belligerent. Once again, if you have any questions, feel free to contact any of CBC's moderators: Wolflare or Luke.

— No trolling.
This is very simple, just don't troll! A mod will tell you if you're being over the top or bothering everyone on the server with a friendly message, a kick, or a mute. We want the server to be a laid back environment, so we really don't want to have to enforce this much. It's here because trolling isn't edgy, it's just annoying.

— Respect each other.
Playful teasing has been a part of the culture on the server for a long time, but don't cross the line! We have definitely had problems with playful banter becoming abusive or not-so-playful in the past, and that's not okay. Regardless of battling experience or seniority or any of that, everyone deserves to be treated with respect.

— No porn.
I really hope I don't have to explain this one! Even though the server has a more mature feel than the forums, this is still not okay!

— English only in the main chat.
It's not that you can't say "adios" before leaving but more that you can't have conversations in other languages because the only language most of our members are fluent in is English.

— No complaining about hax.
You are playing a game that has a lot of luck involved, and if you can't accept that and must abuse members who get good luck to make up for the fact that you can't accept this simple truth, then you should leave. Hax is a part of the game, and complaining about hax is not only annoying but it often turns into a poorly disguised way of calling the opponent who "haxed" you a noob or something like that. People shouldn't have to apologize for every last critical hit in fear of getting verbally destroyed.

— No advertising.
Advertising is disruptive, annoying, and barely ever worthwhile, at least when it comes to advertising obscure forums no one has ever heard of. It's nothing personal, it's just that getting the main chat flooded with advertising is never fun.

— Don't ask for authority.
Similar to PC, we do not give authority or mods to random users or upon request. We will decide on our own who to give authority, and we have enough already.
