General Board Rules
#1.1 MiniTHeatre is aimed at a general audience. This means our site is designed for 13 year olds and older. Everything must be aimed at this age and older. Explicit, vulgar language, drug talk, nudity, porn and so forth is not allowed.
#1.2 Do not mini-mod. We would like to encourage and thank members to use the report button but not add their own criticism.
#1.3 All publicly displayed messages are only limited to English. This includes posts, titles, signatures, profiles and other forms of public display. Other languages can be posted in their specific forum!
#2.1 Members who disobey the rules will be warned or banned depending on what the moderator believes is the appropriate punishment.
#2.2 Members can be warned a maximum of three times. On the third, the member will be immediately banned. This does not mean that you have to have a warning to get banned, moderators may ban you without warnings depending on the offense.
If you believe you do not deserve the warn please contact the moderator who warned you. Talking back to the moderator who gave you the warning with no sense of respect will lead to further warnings.
If you do not know why you received a warning, an email and private message would have been sent to notify you of the reason why you were warned and who warned you.
