General Rules and Guidelines  

✶ This thread covers the general rules of OSSC- rules which apply to all sections of the OSSC forum. However, this is not the entirety of the rules. We also have more specific rules for each section of the forum.  So before posting, make sure you read those rules as well.  They are posted in separate threads in the rule section of the forum. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Welcome Hello and welcome to the One Stop Shop Corner forum!  If you are from IMVU then you probably have an idea how the forum works.  If not, please familiarize yourself with our OSSC 101 Forum Basics Thread. This forum does have slightly different rules than IMVU's forums.  I would also like to mention we are not affiliated with the IMVU website and its forums.  As such IMVU has no authority over this forum and its rules.  In turn the OSSCforum.com cannot do anything about theft posted on IMVU or any such problems with that website. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Forum Etiquette

In general, we expect every OSSC member to be civil to one another and treat everyone with respect.
We understand that not everyone is going to get along; we have a very diverse community thus personalities are bound to clash. However, it is expected at minimum you will communicate to other members / staff in an appropriate manner free of sarcasm and just general rudeness.
.
"Trolling" is NOT allowed.
Trolling, though a term often misused, describes a person who..

Wikipedia wrote:Sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a forum, chat room, or blog), either accidentally or with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.

Trolling, for us, refers to anyone who is simply posting to try and elicit a reaction from other users. This can also include someone who makes excessive spam threads. If you create an alternative account to "troll" - that account will not only be deleted but it will be your main account that will get the warning and potential ban. The severity of the warning will depend on the extent of the trolling.
.
Sending another user a death threat is NOT allowed.
Death threats are basically telling someone directly that they should die. For example death threats can include...

- Threatening to kill someone
- Telling someone to kill themselves
- Telling someone they deserve to die

If we get proof of you sending someone a death threat on our forums, serious action will be taken against you.
This could potentially be a permanent ban from the forums.  
.
Harassment is NOT allowed
"Harassment" could include the following...

- Consistently posting inappropriate, rude, or threatening comments in someone's thread or via private message
- Creating an alternative account in order to contact a person who has explicitly asked for you to leave them alone
- Threatening to commit either physical or emotional abuse to another person
- Emotionally abusing someone
- Posting someone's name in a negative light
- Criticizing someone's work when there is no ground for you to do so. If you dislike someone's work that's fine, then don't order but please don't post in their shop about it.

The punishment of harassment varies from case to case.


Harmful language is NOT allowed
This includes:

-Racist slurs
-Malicious swearing

Usage of such language will be dealt with appropriately depending on context.

Image Restrictions

NSFW (Not Safe For Work) content is not permitted to be posted on the forums.
Our forums need to be suitable for all audiences, since we have users as young as 13 years of age signed on to this site. Therefore, NSFW content may not be posted anywhere on the forum, including inside of spoilers. The following is defined as NFSW:

Nudity, pornography, bondage, and other sexually-themed content
Sexually explicit language, gestures, or expressions
Excessive gore or severe mutilation of the human body (a little bit of blood is allowed, but dismembered body parts is not allowed)

However, nude pictures are allowed to be sold on the forums, but the previews of the images must be appropriately censored when posting them on the forums. Users do not need to be 18+ years of age in order to sell or post appropriately-censored nude artwork on the forum, but they will accept responsibility should actions be taken against them in the event that their image(s) violate our guidelines.
In order to define what is and is not nudity, please refer to our minimum coverage guide here:

Images posted must be PSE friendly.

Users must not post anything that may trigger a Photo Sensitive Epilepsy (PSE) episode for those who suffer from such symptoms. Images that trigger PSE include but is not limited to flashing lights and especially so with contrasting visual patterns. Please visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photosensitive_epilepsy for more information. If you suffer from PSE and find an image bothersome, please PM an Admin or a Moderator.
.
You CANNOT use a display picture/artwork that does NOT belong to you!
Unless you have WRITTEN PERMISSION from the artist, you may not use artwork that is created for someone else.

However, you can use images such as anime screenshots or GIFs from Tumblr but you must provide credit to the creator. These images cannot be resold.
