All Time Warp Comics & Games Community members are responsible for knowing the information contained in the following Code of Conduct.
Time Warp Comics & Games management reserves the right, but does not assume the responsibility, to restrict communication which it deems in its discretion to be harmful to individual guests or damaging to the Time Warp Comics & Games Community.

Prohibited forum behaviors include (but are not limited to):
    :!: profanity, vulgarity, or explicit content For example:
      :arrow: "masking" by using alternative characters/spellings and spaces to get around profanity filters, leet-speak, and combinations of words that produce an offensive result (e.g. ura hugeazz, Tow El Head)
      :arrow: "filter testing"
      :arrow: discussion of or in-character enactments of "cybering" or sexually explicit material (rape, sex chat, etc.)
      :arrow: discussion of graphic violence or bloodletting not pertaining to a literary topic
    :!: hate speech (e.g. racial, ethnic, sexist, homophobic and religious slurs)
    :!: promotion of or engaging in illegal activities, For example: drugs, drug paraphernalia, rape or solicitation of a minor, computer hacking, and copyright violation
    :!: harassment of another specific person (e.g. persistent flaming or continued personal attacks on the boards or "in-character harassment" without prior out-of-character permission.)
    :!: trolling or baiting by putting to the screen inflammatory statements designed to elicit a negative response from the community
    :!: spamming through repeated posts, or off-topic content by word or intent to boards or lists (e.g. scrolling, flooding, polling, or by "bumping" a boards post more than once in 48 hours)
    :!: advertising or promoting a business or commercial site
    :!: soliciting products for sale from an entity other than Time Warp Comics & Games (e.g. an ebay listing or a product from another retail store)

    :!: reregistering a banned screen name, a variation of a banned name, or declarations under a new screen name that you are "really" the banned name
    :!: off-topic posts in the wrong chatrooms (e.g. trade anywhere other than designated trading areas )
    :!: Mature Themes should be discussed maturely and tastefully. Remember that some of our members are 14-17 years old.

    In other words, behave yourself. Treat other people you encounter in the Time Warp Comics & Games Community just as you would want them to treat you.
