The Long Version

Below, we have fleshed out the rules and added some additional specific rules. These rules apply to all posts in this forum, and it is your responsibility to read them. This thread serves as your only warning, and you may be warned and/or banned at the moderators' full discretion for violating any rule in this thread.

* Spam is prohibited.
What counts as "spam"?

* Do not create "blog"-style posts unless they are part of a larger on-topic discussion. These topics do not encourage discussion and are therefore spam.
What counts as a "blog"?

* Do not flame each other! Use your manners and common sense. If you disagree with someone, do so gracefully.
What counts as "flaming"?

* Bumping is prohibited.
What is "bumping"?

* Do not troll. Do not feed the trolls!What is "trolling"?
"Do not feed the trolls" means do not respond to trolling, and is also strictly enforced.

* Do not post off-topic or in the incorrect forum for the subject matter of your post. The forum definitions further down in this thread serve both as a guide and as the binding rules for on- and off-topic posting.

* Topics about a forum itself are improper except in the Bungie Community Forum. For example, a topic about the Halo 3 Forum rather than about Halo 3 itself would belong in the Bungie Community Forum, NOT the Halo 3 Forum.

* Petitions and "sign here" threads are prohibited.

* No political or religious discussion of any kind will be tolerated on the forums.

* Do not link to inappropriate websites. This includes, but is not limited to: sites containing adult content, information on any type of software piracy or shock sites. Violation of this rule results in permanent ban.

* Do not post false information or mislead other forumgoers. This includes false information about Bungie games, Bungie.net, the public forum rules, or other information that may mislead other users.

* Impersonating forum moderators and/or Bungie employees is strictly prohibited. Violation of this rule results in permanent ban.

*Discussions of XBox or XBox 360 hardware or software modification or "hacking" are prohibited on any of the Bungie.net forums.

* Buying, selling, bartering, or offering to do any of the above for anything at all is prohibited. This includes XBox Live accounts, trial cards, and Microsoft Points, as well as all other items, services, or anything else.

* Do not use the public forums to run contests, solicit donations, or advertise other websites.

* Do not bypass the profanity filter (if it says -blam!- instead of the word you used, don't try different ways of posting the blammed word.).

* Advertisements for Groups, Clans, Tournaments, Custom Games, Parties, or Co-Op Play are to be posted in The Classifieds only.

* Threads about groups of users based on age, gender, race, religion, or nationality, including discrimination against these groups, are prohibited.

* Fileshare films, film clips, screenshots, and maps (including GameVee, eatHalo, or other fileshare "grabs") may not be the subject of new threads in any forum. For these items, use the Community Files system. This rule does not apply to media that is posted as an example, case-in-point, or demonstration within a larger on-topic post.

* Bungie-related fan media may be posted in the Gallery Forum only. This includes art, machinima, montages, and other fan-created content. This rule does not apply to media that is posted as an example, case-in-point, or demonstration within a larger on-topic post.

Bungie Universe Forum: Forum-Specific Rules

* Halo gameplay threads are prohibited in this forum. Use the appropriate Halo-specific forum to discuss gameplay from Halo games.

* Fan-created media, including fanfiction, fan-made videos, photoshops, poetry/songs, and other media are appropriate only in the Gallery Forum. Halo 3 screenshots, film clips, films, gametypes, and map variants may not be posted in any public forum, and instead should be uploaded to your Halo 3 Fileshare and tagged using the Community Files system.

* Longstanding, well-established, and active "game universe" threads will be moved to this forum only upon request by the thread's original author. Please send a private message to any forum moderator to request that your appropriate game universe thread be moved to this forum.

* To clear any confusion, Halo story discussion is allowed in both the Halo forums and this forum, but gameplay issues pertaining to those games are only to be discussed in their respective forum(s). Do not cross post!
