  • The signature rules have been updated, the following parameters have been added:
    Signatures must fit within the PG-13 age restriction.
    Themes containing in excess; violence, sex, aberrational behaviour, drug abuse, and nudity are not permitted within signatures. Decisions made on the disabling of a signature under the pretence that it is deviating from the PG-13 standard is at a staff member's discretion.
    Signatures should not be intentionally sexually provocative: This means that any scenes of a blatant sexual nature are not permitted within signatures. Anything surpassing a mild sexual reference will be considered as being intentionally sexually provocative.

    Signatures should not contain explicit nudity: Anything containing visual sexual organs, or bare breasts, are considered as explicit nudity. This is applicable to all mediums it is shown in such as scenes from games, anime, films, and anything containing a form pertaining physical nudity. The only exception is found within the Art & Design forum and is explained within the Art & Design rules.

    Signatures should not contain violent scenes: Anything visibly harming oneself or another in a more than mildly graphic way would be considered a violent scene. The level of violence permitted is mild, anything malicious is not permitted. Themes of violence within signatures should not be very realistic, nor extreme.
    Avoid rapidly changing images with high contrast.
    Consider the affect your images will have on a member with sensitive eyes, or with photosensitive epilepsy.

    Do not abuse the CSS tags.
    Please do not use CSS in malicious or intrusive ways. This will be handled on a case-by-case basis by the staff, depending on severity of the offence.
