Fire & Ice The rules! Read these please!

#1

Unread post by Tiger21820 MASTER!! »

My 1st post! 1st forum post!! My 1st topic!!! 1st forum topic!!!! THIS TOPIC IS #1!!!!! :laughing4

If your e-mail client or provider or whatever marks any email from this website as "suspicious", (Gmail does this) ignore it, it is perfectly fine!

Welcome to Nintendo 3DS Central! If you came from Nintendo DS Central, then welcome back! :jumpy :dancingmario

This board was started on: September 5th, 2019, 7:08 (24-Hour, UTC -5)

Note that the rating for the board is PG-13 and may have some profanity!
No one under 13 will be allowed to join!
We will not be allowing the collection of any data from those under 13, as any members who join that are under 13 will be deleted! This forum is NOT being directed towards children!

These are the rules for the forum! Please follow them! :rules
We are a laid back community, so we just have the obvious rules that you would expect on any other forum!
Remember that most of these rules also apply to Moderators too!

DISCLAIMER!
These rules are subject to change at any time, without any warning or notification! It is up to YOU to re-read these rules to keep up to date for any changes! We reserve the right to refuse any member access to any features, forums, or the board as a whole! This board may go offline for any reason (specified or not), and we are NOT obligated to answer or change anything on behalf of ANYONE except where required by US law! This forum and it's software is provided as-is with no warranty! Tiger21820, and Nintendo 3DS Central will NOT be held responsible for any damages to PC equipment, data loss, or injuries! We try our best to prevent these from happening, but cannot guarantee any preventions!

If you have any problems with permissions (such as not being able to post in a forum when you are supposed to, or having moderator permissions when you are not a Moderator) let me know!

WARNING FOR INACTIVE MEMBERS: ANY MEMBERS WHO JOIN BUT DO NOT ACTIVATE THEIR ACCOUNT WILL BE DELETED WITHIN 1 MONTH'S TIME AFTER JOINING! PLEASE ACTIVATE YOUR ACCOUNT IF YOU JOIN! ADMINISTRATORS WILL NOT MANUALLY ACTIVATE ACCOUNTS UNLESS THEY CONTACT ME STATING THEY ARE HAVING TROUBLE ACTIVATING THEIR ACCOUNT! Contact me at [email protected] if you are having problems activating your account!

0. Nintendo DS Central registration bonus: (Effective August 14th, 2020)
If you came from Nintendo DS Central, then you can be upgraded straight to a NDSCentral Veteran! All members who signed up to Nintendo DS Central PRIOR to September 5th, 2019 will be upgraded to a NDSCentral Veteran! If I recognize your name, then I will most likely do it as soon as I see you! But if I don't, either PM me (Brand New Members can use the PM system), or mention it on your Introduction topic(if you decided to make one)! Make sure you post a link to your Nintendo DS Central profile, so I can be sure it's you!

Also, however many points you may have on Nintendo DS Central will be applied to your account when you join!

1. When you register, you will be a Brand New Member!
Brand New Members do not have the ability to post in the Spam Forum, Forum Games, or the Advertising Forum! They also cannot chat in the chat box, post in the Knowledge Base, or upload attachments! Once you make 200 posts, then you will become a Full Member, and then be able to do all those things! :clapping You can do it! :ohyeah

2. Be respectful to everyone!
No flaming, bullying, trolling, hateful language, racism, religious persecution, and all other similar behavior! Profanity is allowed here to an extent, but remember that younger people may post here, so please keep it to a minimum or censor it! Slurs on the other hand are definitely NOT okay, and the use of such words will get you warned!

We do not enforce the censorship of any words here, and it is your responsibility to choose what words you use and how you use them when you post! The staff will NOT be held responsible for ANYTHING that is posted here!

If you joined just to be a troll and spam the forums, then we can guarantee that you will be banned faster than you can say "D'OH!" Think about that! :biggrin2

If you post anything (links, graphics, sounds, etc.) that pose (or encourage) health risks such as triggering seizures from strobe flashers without adding any warning (and out of malice), then we have no choice but to permanently ban you from the forums! Even if there is no incident, simply posting such content is enough to get you banned!

3. No ROMs, cracks, warez, viruses, plagiarism or other illegal content!
If you want to share a ROM hack, please upload an ips or bps patch of it in a compression format (e.g. zip, rar, 7z, etc.), or just as an ips or bps patch (You can attach IPS or BPS patches to your posts!)! Please don't link to places that share ROMs either! (Sonic Retro is the ONLY exception, but please don't post, or link to any of the ROMs here!) We don't condone piracy here at Nintendo 3DS Central! If you want to share those illegally downloaded action movies with lots of guns, explosions, screaming, and death, take that elsewhere! I'm sorry to say that if you do get in trouble for doing it, we cannot vouch for you!

Basically, if it's prohibited by US law or hostinger's terms of use, then it's prohibited here! :biggrin2

We also do not permit plagiarism here on Nintendo 3DS Central! If copying, linking or uploading anything from anywhere, please cite a source or give credit! Also, make sure you aren't stealing other people's bandwidth! If anyone asks you to remove something, please do it! If you don't, then the staff WILL!

Also, video game FAQs are (often) copyrighted content! Please do not link to, copy anything from, or upload an attachment of any FAQ from sites such as GameFAQs unless:
1. The author(s) has/have expressly mentioned that linking is fine,
2. The author(s) has/have explicitly gave you permission to do so, and you will need to show proof of it,
3. It is your FAQ!
4. The FAQ belongs to me, Tiger21820! I hereby grant full permission to anyone to upload, copy, or link to any and all FAQs published by me for use anywhere on this site! You must not charge any money, or forum points to use them, and make sure that you give credit!

All unauthorized FAQ links, posts, or attachments will be removed! Repeated actions will result in warnings!

If anyone wants anything of theirs removed from the forums, either post it in viewtopic.php?f=63&t=69, or e-mail me at [email protected], and we will remove it! You must provide proof that the content belongs to you, and that you are acting in good faith!

4. Respect and obey the staff!
That goes without saying! AND NO BACKSEAT MODERATING! If you want to be a moderator, you can apply here if there are any positions open!

5. Please no explicit content!
Pornography, henti, and anything related shouldn't be here! Whether they are photographs, drawings, or anything else, any images that portray genitals, fluids or are sexual in nature will be deleted (both attachments and links), and the users will be warned and will have their posts locked! This is a PG-13 forum!
CHILD PORNOGRAPHY WILL NEVER, EVER BE TOLORATED HERE ON NINTENDO 3DS CENTRAL, AND IF ANYONE EVER POSTS SUCH CONTENT, THEY WILL HAVE THEIR ACCOUNT DELETED, THEIR E-MAIL AND IP ADDRESSES BANNED, AND WILL BE REPORTED TO THEIR COUNTRY'S VERSION OF THE F.B.I.!!!! DO NOT EVER DO THIS! IT IS SICK, AND PUTS THIS FORUM IN JEPRODY!
Etchi Lewd images (very revealing apparel, almost nude, but no genitals shown) are POSSIBLY ok, just as long no actual genitals being shown, and they are not photographs of actual people (Drawings are fine)! Make sure you put questionable images in spoilers, and tag them as such! If these are not at least put in spoilers, the images may be removed! When in doubt, give me a shout! :clapping :laughing4
Animation with brief nudity in YouTube videos is fine, but you MUST tag it as such!
Nudity from actual people is NOT permitted in any medium!
ALSO, NO VORE! IT ISN'T FUNNY NOW, IT WAS NEVER FUNNY THEN, AND IT WILL NEVER BECOME FUNNY! :para:

6. Infractions
We don't have a defined infraction system (except for posting forbidden links, see lower posts), so we will generally issue warnings for simple violations (such as spamming, trolling, flaming, posting ROMs "by mistake", etc.), and bans with lengths that are appropriate with more serious violations... If you are banned, wait for it to end, appeal it if you feel like the reason or length wasn't appropriate, don't reregister to bypass outstanding bans... WHATEVER! We're laid back, so we'll just say 5 warnings equal a 5 day ban, and expire after 90 days... that sound good? Good! :biggrin2

Contact me at [email protected] if you need to appeal a ban! Appeals only apply to your account, you cannot appeal on behalf of another member (sorry!), and you can only make 1 appeal for the current ban!

If your appeal fails, then that's it, wait for it to end! If your appeal is successful, one of two things will happen: Your ban will be overturned, or you will have the ban time reduced! In the case of a ban shortening, these are final! You won't be able to get the same ban shortened any further, so take that, or leave it!

If you are ever warned or banned by mistake, either PM me, a Co-Administrator, or Moderator, or e-mail me at [email protected], and we will get around to removing them for you, as well as restoring any deducted points! Make sure you specify any messages related to the warning or the ban, and who accidently issued the warning or ban! I will contact the person who issued the infraction to make sure that it was indeed a mistake! Please understand that we NEVER EVER arbitrarily issue warnings or bans to ANY members for no reason (there are consequences for doing so!), so the likelihood of that ever happening is very slim, but it could happen!

REMEMBER! There is no excuse for failure to read the rules in any case! At the bottom of this topic, one can view the last 255 members who visited it! That means the staff will know whether you read them or not! Ignorance is not an excuse! Remember this well! :wink3

7. Off-site disputes will not be punishable, but leave them out of Nintendo 3DS Central, please!
My policy is to give members the benefit of the doubt! As such, we will not give out infractions for anything you may have done outside of Nintendo 3DS Central! Whatever may have happened is between you and them, not us! But please, leave Nintendo 3DS Central out of it! We're innocent!

Don't dramatize on how you got banned by that moderator you did not like, or how that one member said something awful and called you a horrible name! Those guys are probably not members here, and you are, so don't worry! But if they end up joining here and you and them start getting into it, then it is NOW our problem, and all of you will be dealt with in accordance to OUR rules, which means that you and them may be warned or banned!

So please keep off-site disputes where they are, we are not them, they are not us, we don't care, blah blah blah... We only deal with things that happen HERE, Ok?

Anything that happened on Nintendo DS Central also isn't relevant here! We won't dwell on the things that happened on the old forums here and vice versa! If you get banned there, you won't be banned here, and if you get banned here, you won't get banned there... Nintendo DS Central is currently read-only, so this doesn't apply right now!

8. You can have 3 accounts here! :bored ...Okay then! :shrug
Read the following posts for rules on having multiple accounts!

9. No spamming, stay on topic, post in English, blah blah blah, spam in the spam forum all you want when you earn it, AHHH SCREW THAT, LET'S JUST GET GOING ALREADY!!! Welcome to Nintendo 3DS Central! Please enjoy your stay here!! :clapping

Signature Rules

#90

Unread post by Tiger21820 MASTER!! »

While images in signatures can be unlimited in size, I kindly ask that you put larger images (those that are larger than 300px in height) in a [spoil] (Spoiler) tag! Also, please use spoilers if you have multiple images that would exceed 300px in height total! Regarding width, if an image stretches out of the board or forces horizontal scrolling, then that image is too large, and needs to be removed! If we deem necessary, we will edit signatures so they will comply with our rules! If you keep violating these rules, you may end up getting warned, and having your signiture privilages removed, so don't do that, okay?

Signatures have a 9999 character limit, so that's okay, right?

COPPA and Nintendo 3DS Central: This forum is only for ages 13 & up!

#141

Unread post by Tiger21820 MASTER!! »

https://searchcompliance.techtarget.com ... ection-Act
https://uscode.house.gov/view.xhtml?req ... ion=prelim

A brief rundown on the scope of COPPA:
The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, or COPPA is a law in the United States of America that imposes certain requirements on operators of websites or online services directed to children under 13 years of age, and on operators of other websites or online services that have actual knowledge that they are collecting personal information online from a child under 13 years of age!
Due to laws regarding COPPA, no one under 13 will be allowed to join, and all activation requests for COPPA registered users will be denied! Anyone under 13 who joins will be deleted! Accounts that complete the COPPA process (which are placed in the COPPA Members usergroup, which has the same privileges as a Guest) will be deleted! If anyone who joins claims they are over 13 (without using the COPPA registration process) and we find out they are under 13, they will be deleted! All personal data associated with such accounts will be purged!

We will not be allowing the collection of any data from those under 13, as any members who join that are under 13 will be deleted in order to prevent this! This forum is NOT directed to children! This is to waive all liability regarding COPPA! There is a possibility that this will be increased to 16 years, in which the terms will be updated as such!

If a parent requests their child's account to be deleted as mandated by any US law, regardless of age, e-mail me at [email protected], and specify whether all posts and content should be deleted or not, whether the parent wants to prevent their child from rejoining Nintendo 3DS Central by having associated e-mail addressed permanently banned or not, etc.

Reporting posts

#150

Unread post by Tiger21820 MASTER!! »

If a post violates the rules, report it! Do not confront the member (See rule 4)! Specify the appropriate reason for the report, and a Moderator or (Co-)Administrator will look at it!

If you want one of your topics closed, report the first post of your topic! If you want it reopened, report the same post, and we'll see if it should be reopened!

Reports are ONLY for reporting posts that violate the rules, or to request the closure or reopening of your topics, and not any other purpose! Misuse of the reporting system can and will result in warnings!

DO NOT EVER REPORT THE POSTS OF AN ADMINISTRATOR OR CO-ADMINISTRATOR OR YOU WILL BE WARNED! It is discourteous to report the posts of any Administrator or Co-Administrator, since they run the boards! If I find a way to disable the reporting of posts for specific members, then this statement will be removed!

If a Moderator violates the rules, do not confront them! Report the violation, PM me, or E-Mail me at [email protected] (If you are unable to PM or report for whatever reason), and I will deal with it myself!

Also, please DO NOT publically announce that you reported a member (such as saying "I reported you") to THAT member, because that is very immature, and is ultimately CONFRONTING that member (which we ASKED YOU NOT TO DO IN THE FIRST PLACE!)! Please just don't do it, because it is annoying! :banghead3 If you do it multiple times, you may find yourself getting a warning!

Moderator guidelines and rules

#207

Unread post by Tiger21820 MASTER!! »

If you Members are reading this, then you might want to take this information to heart! This is how Moderators will preform their jobs here at Nintendo 3DS Central!

1. Infractions: Only ban if absolutely necessary!
Here on Nintendo 3DS Central, we issue warnings for almost every minor violation committed on the forums, except under the case of an Advertising Forum violation! Please read down for more details!

Instruction for warning a user:

First, give them a verbal warning (No actual warning) to let them know that they need to stop doing what they are doing!

If they do not listen the first time, then you can warn (an actual warning this time) them! You can then issue additional warnings when you feel it is appropriate!

After 5 warnings, they will receive a 5 day ban, and warnings will expire after 90 days!

Only warn users IF THEY BREAK THE RULES, and not any other reason! Do not touch Tiger21821 or Tiger21822! They are mine! :laugh1

If the account is a troll account and is spamming the crap out of the forums, go ahead and ban him for however long you feel is necessary, and we'll have a good laugh over a nice can of soda in the Staff Lounge!

If a member commits a very serious violation, give them a permanent ban first, and then PM me (or a Co-Administrator), and we will discuss the matter in the Staff Lounge and decide how long the ban should be!

If a member creates a new account (or uses an old one (check the IP addresses!)) to evade a ban, then change their ban into a permanent one (if it isn't already)! and if they re-register AGAIN, ban ALL their IPs associated with ALL of their accounts!

Please do not use IP banning unless they create around 10 accounts! Just keep banning them permanently! IP BANNING SHOULD ONLY BE USED AS AN ABSOLUTE LAST RESORT!

Please do not issue warnings or bans for no reason to anyone!
This is EXTREMELY rude! Warnings are ONLY to be given to those who BREAK THE RULES, and NOTHING ELSE! You will be warned once, and ONLY ONCE if you abuse the infraction system! While the warning is valid, (they expire in 90 days) the next time will be impeachment!

Please don't touch anyone with the VIP rank! If they make a violation, please let me know before doing anything! This goes for Co-Administrators as well!

Please do NOT IP ban any spam bots! Spam bots cycle IP addresses, and some legitimate users or potential registrants may share these IP addresses and if you ban these IPs, you may end up banning them too, or if a member tries to sign up, they will get banned the moment they sign up! Always ban spam bots permanently, and don't IP ban them! Same goes for their e-mail address for the very same reason! PM me if you feel the spam bot needs to be removed!

2. Handling topics and posts
No one may delete ANY topic or post! Always close a topic, or close a post to prevent editing!
Edit posts where necessary! Please leave a reason for editing that post as well!
Don't blank out spam, or other nonsense posts! That counts as deletion!
When moving a topic, you can leave a shadow topic (a redirect) if the topic is being moved to a relevant forum!
If trashing a topic, move them to their appropriate archive forum, and do not leave a shadow topic (a redirect) for trashed topics, as it clutters the forums!
If you know how splitting, merging or moving topics or posts work, then do what you feel is most appropriate for the actions you will take! If not, ask me or a Co-Administrator!
If you are trashing (moving) posts from a topic (not the WHOLE thing, just a few), when specifying a topic ID, use 112 as the ID! If you aren't sure about it, ask me or a Co-Administrator!
Also, when reports have been resolved, CLOSE them! Don't delete them!

3. Reserved
Reserved for future use...

4. Other things
If you have questions, PM or e-mail me at [email protected]!

If you are retiring from being a Moderator, you will be placed into a special user group as a thank you for your services! Honorary Members have a few additional privileges that ordinary members don't have, such as creating sticky topics, locking their own topics, and posting in the Announcements and the Staff Lounge forums! They also have all the permissions a Full Member has (If you happen to be under 200 posts)! If you get banned however, you will lose this user group and return to being an ordinary user (Brand New Member for <200 posts, Full Member for >=200 posts)!

For MOST violations, if you accumulate 5 warnings, you will be impeached without going into the Honorary Member group! That is your get out of banning free card! You won't be banned for that violation ONLY! (Note: You WILL be banned at first, but I will overturn it ONE time!) Moderators and Co-Administrators are NOT invincible!

Please do not warn an Administrator, or a Co-Administrator!
If I find a way to disable warnings for certain members or groups, then this statement will be removed! I don't know why, but founders can also be warned... That makes no sense! Just don't do it, ok? Otherwise, you will be warned! :nod3


This is a list of users that you are NOT allowed to warn or ban:
Tiger21820 (Well, DUH! That's a no brainer!)
Tiger21821
Tiger21822
flowermom
Lovebeingsoba
MarissaT
tomthebomb
saschweitzer

This list applies to Co-Administrators too!

You may NOT warn or ban ANYONE in the list above, nor can you ban ANY IPs, or E-MAILS that belong to any of these users!! If these members are causing trouble, let me know, and I'll deal with them! They have... special ties with me, and are under my protection!

Creation forum commission shop rules

#306

Unread post by Tiger21820 MASTER!! »

Link to relevant topic: viewtopic.php?f=70&t=123

These are the rules for commission shops in the Creations forum:

1. Commission shops will use forum points as a currency! Please do not use actual money to trade for commissions here on Nintendo 3DS Central! Off-site commissions for money are fine, but please no trading here on the forums for now! This may change in the future depending on how this can work!

2. All commission shops that deal in NSFW, explicit, hateful, unsafe or anything else related will be closed and users will be warned! Re-read (I assume you read it!) rule 5 for possible exceptions!

3. Once someone gives you points, then you are expected to fulfill the requested commission! If you paid points and are still refused any commission, report the first post of the commission shop (providing solid evidence of the point transfer), and you will be refunded all your points provided that your report was made in good faith! If you make a report in bad faith (e.g. commission was made, and you decided to be a jerk and report it anyway), your report will be closed and you will be warned!

4. When transferring points, please include a description in the transfer so it is easier for those to know about the commission!

5. Only one topic per user please!

6. If you are inactive for a considerable amount of time, your topic will be closed due to inactivity! If you want your topic reopened, either PM me, another Administrator, a Co-Administrator, a Moderator, or report the first post of your topic!

5. Don't forget to read the forum rules and be respectful! :victory

Advertising & self-promotion rules

#684

Unread post by Tiger21820 MASTER!! »

Link to relevant topic: viewtopic.php?f=68&t=147

1. Please keep all advertising & self-promotions in either the Advertising Forum (which you need 200 posts to use, so get to it!), your profile, or signature! Links that are relevant to an ongoing topic can be posted!

2. Any threads or posts that contain self-promotion links (that are irrelevant to the scope of the board) outside of the Advertising Forum will either moved to the said forum (Full Members & Honorary Members), or trashed (Brand New Member)! We generally won't give out infractions for occasional violations, but if you keep on doing it over and over again, we will unfortunately have to warn you!

3. Please don't advertise the same website in more than one thread! Bump it if you want, but don't over do it!

4. If you have multiple websites that you want to promote, just make one big thread for them! :thumbsup You can also edit your posts to add or remove links, so try to do that, kay?

5. They don't have to be strictly your own websites! Feel free to post other people's or company websites (serebii.net or The Cutting Room Floor are great examples!)! It might help them out! :teacher
However, if someone doesn't want their website here and asks for it to be removed, please do it! If you don't, we will!

6. Please remove or fix broken/dead links! We don't need any rotting links here, they stink up the joint! :barf

7. Forbidden links
This is a list of websites you MAY NOT advertise on Nintendo 3DS Central!
Posting links to any such websites can and will result in warnings, or bans!
This has a defined infraction system, and bans have fixed length, and apply for the entire board!
After all Warnings expire (90 days for 1, not all), so do the penalty tiers (back to first)!
All Warnings that involve bans will be applied AFTER the ban expires!


A. Illegal software sharing websites (Includes video game ROMs, ISOs, and all other "Warez")
First: (Warning)
Repeated: (Ban: 5 days & Warning)

B. Pornography, sexual, and all other explicit websites (Includes content posted from YouTube)
First: (3 Warnings)
Second: (Ban: 10 days & Warning)
Repeated: (Ban: 1 month, & Warning)
CHILD PORNOGRAPHY: (ACCOUNT DELETION, PERMANANT IP AND E-MAIL BAN, & REPORT TO F.B.I. (OR YOUR CONTRY'S VERSION OF IT))

C. Illegal copyrighted media sharing websites (Includes music, films, television shows/anime, videos, illegally distributed images & anything else that bears the big bad "©" & "℗", this does not include YouTube videos, as those are managed by Google, and if they violate copyright policy, then Google will delete those videos, so they cannot put anything on us! Public domain is fine!)
First: (Warning)
Repeated: (Ban: 5 days & Warning)

D. Websites that pose a security risk to PCs, and other equipment (Viruses, Trojan Horses, Worms, Spyware, etc.)
Phishing sites or scams also apply to this infraction!
First: (Ban: 3 months & 2 Warnings)
Repeated: (Ban: 9 months & 4 Warnings)

E. Websites that pose a health risk to people (Seizures from strobes, etc.)
(Ban: & Staff Review)
There doesn't have to be an incident, simply posting the link is enough to get banned!

F. Anything else that violates our terms!

If you have any questions, PM me, or email me at [email protected], or ask a Co-Administrator!

Extra Rules

#686

Unread post by Tiger21820 MASTER!! »

These may just be policies we have at Nintendo 3DS Central!
These are some extra :rules so the main rules post doesn't get cluttered!

10. Deletion of members, topics and posts
1. No one outside of the Administrators or Co-Administrators groups may delete posts or topics!
2. We do not arbitrarily delete ANY accounts here unless: The account remains inactive (did not use the account verification link in their registration e-mail) for a month after joining, the account is in the COPPA Members group, the account is known to be under 13 years of age (and has dodged the COPPA process and/or lied about their age), a parent requests that their child's account be terminated regardless of age mandated by US law, or the account is deemed dangerous to the safety of our members (In that case, all IP addresses and e-mails associated with such accounts will be permanently banned)!
3. If you want your account deactivated (all account deletion requests will be rejected, unless it is required by US law, and that a link to the law mandating the deletion of the account is provided), please PM, or contact me at [email protected]! However, please be aware that once I deactivate your account, you might/will not be able to re-activate it yourself! If you want your account reactivated, please contact me at (email already listed! Look around!), and I'll get it going again!

11. Multi-posting, necro-posting, and "Fluff Posts"
We actually have no rules against posting multiple times in a row, or bumping extremely old topics! One word or "Fluff posts" as they call it, are also ok! Just don't overdo it (otherwise we might get problems with other Moderators)!
Also, please understand that multi-posting, necro-posting, and "Fluff Posts" can be really irritating (Hey, what are you looking at ME for!? I don't care! :shrug ) to certain people, so please keep that in mind while doing it! I am totally fine with it, but some Moderators might not be, and may act on Moderator Instincts they picked up on different forums... (Meaning you may get your topics closed or be warned at a Moderator's discretion) If there is a dispute, let me (I am the ultimate go-to for these matters) or a Co-Administrator know, and we'll straighten it out!

12. We do not promote gambling here! We're talking actual money here, not forum points!
Remember, there are members under 21 in this forum! Gambling with *REAL* money online may be illegal without proper authorities or banned completely in certain jurisdictions! That would NOT be good for the forums! No sir-ree bob! :nono
Read the next post for prohibited activity regarding gambling!

13. Most types of attachments should be used sparingly!
If you are going to add images to a post, please start by embedding them using the image BBCode! Upload an attachment as a last resort if you must! :iconwink This should go for most other attachments too! If you need to revise an attachment, delete the old one first! This is to preserve server space, as for I currently have not set an absolute limit to attachments boardwise!

14. Please do not reply to spam bots or spammers, even if it is in the Spam Forum! (That's in the case of a spam bot, which they SHOULDN'T even have access to in the first place!)
Look, they may say some of the weirdest mumbo-jumbo you have ever heard of, but please do not reply to spam, no matter HOW tempting it is! It will cause problems with search engines among other things, and most spam bots only post once, and are never seen again! If you see any spam outside of the Spam Forum (Whether it be a from an actual person or robot), report it, and do not reply to it in any way! The staff will take care of it! Also, DO NOT click ANY links they post, as they can be a potential security risk, or lead to some undesirable content!

15. Download System rules
1. Please do not post files that are larger than 4MB! Anything larger than that will be removed!
2. Please do not upload a file if there is one of the same already uploaded as an attachment! First, delete the attachment, THEN upload it on the Download System! This is to preserve server space!
3. Nothing illegal! No ROMs!
4. Tiger21820: Post the rest of the rules

16. HAPPY MONTH!!!
Beginning next year, from August 6th to September 6th each year*, as a celebration for Tiger21820 and Nintendo (3)DS Central's birthday, as well as the anniversary of Nintendo 3DS Central, all forum features will be available for Brand New Members! Thanks for being a part of the community! :bow2

*Please note that there is no guarantee that this will take place every year or continue as an annual event! Personal matters may delay, shorten, or cancel the event! If this is discontinued, this rule will be repealed!

17. No rallying for the ban of another member!
Seriously! Why? If you have problems with anyone, report him or her, and let us, and ONLY us, handle it! Do not post topics asking if we should ban a user! We will close those topics, and might warn you for it!

18. Reserved
Reserved for future use...

19. Please do not add or embed any YouTube videos that are made for kids directed towards children to the YouTube Gallery or posts!
This website is NOT directed towards children, so nothing that is legally directed towards children as stated in COPPA should be allowed here! :nono Any YouTube videos that are found to be directed towards children will be removed! No warnings will be given, unless you repeatedly post such videos after they are removed! :yellowcard If action is taken on this website due to a video you posted here, you will be banned for no more than 3 months! :redcard However, if it isn't an actual problem with this law, then this rule will be repealed! :shrug

20. Reserved
Reserved for future use...

Gambling and Nintendo 3DS Central

#882

Unread post by Tiger21820 MASTER!! »

As said before, gambling in certain places may be heavily regulated, or completely illegal in some places, and this forum does not have the proper authority to operate in a gambling environment, nor can it ever! It is impossible! You may play forum games here and use forum points for whatever, but we're talking about *ACTUAL* currency here! If you want to gamble with real money, take it elsewhere! We do not want to be any part of it! If you get in trouble for illegal gambling, we cannot vouch for you! Don't forget, depending on the laws, gambling with real money is illegal for those under 21 to 18!

This is a list of acts that are prohibited at Nintendo 3DS Central:

0. Whatever is against the law in the United States and/or whatever violates Hostinger's terms of use is prohibited here!

1. Betting money for any kind of purpose in order to win something through acts such as games of chance

2. Posting links to websites related to gambling

3. Promoting, starting, or participating in unapproved or illegal raffles, drawings, or lotteries (we will not accept proposals for these kind of things!)

4. Encouraging or assisting minors to illegally gamble; we will report you to the FBI or whatever your country calls it if we catch you doing this! This is HIGHLY illegal!!

5. Asking for assistance to illegally smuggle unauthorized gambling devices (depending existing laws, and besides, we don't engage in that sort of trade) to where you are (You won't be warned or banned for doing this, just a nice little "No, we cannot help you here, sorry"!)

6. We will not provide information on how to convert token accepting pachislo machines to accept real currency, so please don't ask! You won't warned or banned for asking, and I'm sure you know what the answer will be! :tounge1

7. Anything else not posted here!

Engaging in these acts (except 5 or 6) can and will result in warnings (Most likely up to 1), temporary or permanent bans, or your account terminated and deleted! BANNED FOR LIFE if you will!

Alright? No using real money to gamble! Forum points for harmless games, yes, but real money, nahhh! Tiger OUT!

Rules for multiple accounts

#906

Unread post by Tiger21820 MASTER!! »

These are the rules for using additional accounts!

0. You are allowed to have no more than 3 accounts!

1. All associated accounts will be treated as the same user!

2. All alternate accounts are subject to ALL rules! There are no exceptions! Here is an example of how NOT to use an alternate account!

3. If an alternate account breaks ANY rules, then ALL other accounts will receive the SAME punishment if one gets banned! Warnings only apply to one account! Bans apply to ALL accounts! If one account receives a 1 month ban, the others will be banned for 1 month!

4. When you use an alternate account, act as you would on your regular account! Do not act as a completely different person, and toll the boards, cuz that's just not cool! Remember to be yourself! :dancingmario

5. We can look up IP addresses to make sure it's you! Keep that in mind if you intend to spam the boards with other accounts!

6. The ability to have multiple accounts is unfortunately a PRIVILAGE, not a RIGHT! If you abuse your alternate accounts, then you will lose access to them! Whichever account signed up the earliest will be the one we decide to let you keep using! Do not make any more accounts than the amount you were allowed to have, and do not create any accounts if any are banned! You know that, right?

7. We reserve the right to ban, or disallow the creation of alternate accounts either for a certain member, or the entire forum at any time, for any reason!

8. Both Co-Administrators AND Moderators are subject to these rules! Come on guys! Remember your position here at Nintendo 3DS Central! :para: :rock3:

9. HA-HA! :laughing4

Discord rules

#1202

Unread post by Tiger21820 MASTER!! »

These are the rules for the Discord server, and the Wario Land 3 Master Quest Discord Server!

Nintendo 3DS Central server rules:

-1. Follow Discord's Terms of Service!
00. Don't forget to join the forums if you haven't already! It really helps us out!
01. Be respectful! No flaming, or trolling!
02. No spamming! This doesn't include one word messages!
03. No illegal content! That includes ROMs, cracks, computer hacking, viruses, copyrighted content (unless you own or have permission to use said content), etc.
04. Keep this PG-13! No porn, super explicit language, or any other NSFW content! No Vore either! It isn’t funny now, it was never funny then, and it will never become funny!
05. If you promote this server on another server, please show your support by posting a link of that server here! I'm sure it will help them out too!
06. No back seat moderation! It's a job that's just too much for a normal Member to handle! Better leave it to the professionals!
07. In order to be able to post in this server, be approved by Tiger21820! If you are invisible, you cannot be approved, so you will have to unhide yourself, otherwise you will be kicked! To request approval, unhide yourself if you haven't yet, and make a post in approval-requests, and wait for you to get the Members role!
08. Some of the rules from the forums will apply here too! Just act you would here as you would there! 😉 viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1
09. Advertising or self-promotion is welcome here within reason, but please don’t over do it! Typically, once is enough! If your links get lost in the message history, then you can post another link! Make sure the links are in a relevant channel, or in a general chat channel! Please don’t advertise in more than one channel at a time, either! Members will see your links one way or another! Excessive advertising can result in links being deleted, loss of privileges, muting, or banning!
10. According to the Discord terms of service, no one under 13 will be allowed to join! Anyone known to be under 13 will be kicked from the server! If there is a user who you believe to be under 13, please report that user to both me and Discord so we can deal with them! Also, if you are over 13, but joke that you are under 13, make sure you let us know that you are actually over 13, so the staff won’t ban or kick you!

Wario Land 3 Master Quest server rules:

0. Follow Discord's Terms of Service!
1. Be respectful! No flaming, or trolling!
2. No spamming! This doesn't include one word messages!
3. No illegal content! That includes ROMs, cracks, computer hacking, viruses, copyrighted content (unless you own or have permission to use said content), etc.
4. Keep this PG-13! No porn, super explicit language, or any other NSFW content! No Vore either! It isn’t funny now, it was never funny then, and it will never become funny!
Rule #5: If you promote a discord server here, please try to promote this one on that one too! Sharing is caring!
Rule #6: If you promote this server on another server, please show your support by posting a link of that server here! I'm sure it will help them out too!
Rule #7: No back seat moderation! It's a job that's just too much for a normal Member to handle! Better leave it to the professionals!
Rule #8: Please do not post ANY YouTube links to Non-Master Quest Wario Land 3 let's plays! This discord is for Wario Land 3: The Master Quest ONLY! Any such links will be removed! This rule has been repealed!
Rule #9: In order to be able to post in this server, you must be approved by Tiger21820! If you are invisible, you cannot be approved, so you will have to unhide yourself, otherwise you will be kicked! To request approval, unhide yourself if you haven't yet, and make a post in approval-requests, and wait for you to get the Members role!

Default Usergroup Priority

#1750

Unread post by Tiger21820 MASTER!! »

This is the order that the display color will show up for a usergroup assigned to each user!

If a user is assigned to multiple usergroups, the one that shows on their username (and rank) will be the one that's highest on the list!

Example (This is no longer the case, but will still be used as an example!): CaptianDrewBoy is a Moderator, and a NDSCentral Veteran! Since Moderator is higher than NDSCentral Veteran, he will show up as a Moderator! If he steps down and becomes an Honorary Member, he will show up as a NDSCentral Veteran, since that group has priority over Honorary Member!

Anyone who is banned for 1 month or longer will always have the Banned Members group shown for as long that ban is valid!

1. Administrators
2. Co-Administrators
3. Moderators
4. NDSCentral Veterans
5. Honorary Members
6. COPPA Members (Doesn't display automatically upon registration and activation, and is essentially unused unless I grant an (extremely rare) exception to someone who is under 13!)
7. Brand New Members (When a member joins, they will be in two usergroups, this one, and Full Members! Upon reaching 200 posts, they will be removed from this usergroup, and have Full Member permissions)
8. Any open or requested user membership if the user chooses to display as the default (There are currently no open or requestable usergroups at the moment)
9. Full Members
10. Bots
11. Guests
