    These rules are guidelines on how not to get banned. They aren't complete, and most unlisted rules are just common sense. Please don't minimod, report posts you think don't belong here and our moderation team will take a look.

    General
    • Don't message administrators, gamemasters or players about keys or access requests to the tests.
    • Don't resell or account share your access to NV:MP, it's not fair for other members.
    • Don't ban evade using multiple accounts. Gamemasters are alerted when banned users access multiple accounts.
    • People who know of potential ban evaders must disclose their accounts to the moderation team. Users who don't will be treated under the same punishment as the ban evader. Example: If the banned user is banned for a week, affiliates will also be banned for a week.
    • If you've found something that goes against our site rules, use the report feature where needed. Please don't cold message staff members about inappropriate content.
    • No witch-hunting using factions. This means you are not allowed to send your faction to vote on a poll and tell them what to vote for. Or telling your faction members to go and spam a post or disrupt other factions. (If you are not sure if you are doing this, message Gil or Jak)
    • Abusing the reporting system by submitting false or spam reports will result in the reporter being punished.

    Posting and Shoutbox
    • Don't post NSFW content.
    • Don't harass/flame other users.
    • Don't ask for game keys, a majority of others are patiently waiting like you! Asking for keys won't improve you chances.
    • Don't post or link to leaks/copyrighted material.
    • Don't post spam on the forums.
    • Don't sign up to advertise. This includes "let's plays" or stream links. It's OK to post your content, but using the forums for your own personal gain is not OK.
    • Don't reply to spam posts, it floods the chatbox and only makes it harder for the moderation team.
    • The shoutbox is out of character, anything you say in regards to flaming another user will be treated as account to account, not character to character.
    • Don't shitpost or derail topics. If you're throwing down dirt on another faction/group, create a new thread outside of the faction/alliance's main thread.
    • People abusing the ratings/like system will receive no less than a days ban.
    • Don't talk about factions in shoutbox, F&A is important but all shoutbox faction talk creates unnecessary drama.
    • Posting "ban-me's" (asking to be banned) will be fulfilled with a perma ban, no appeals, no alts.
    • Don't post content that has little to no contribution to the sub-forum, or thread. Discussions are OK, but don't post for the sake of it.
    • Don't post in old threads. There's no fixed limit but if a thread is "dead" (has no recent activity), unless you're reviving the original topic, don't post in it.
    • Keep image "memes" in the "Meme Motel" shoutbox room, if you cannot see it do "/rooms" and find it
    • Do not post messages related to factions in profile posts. Keep appropriate faction discussion in the sub-forum, or via PM if its a personal matter.
    • Users found to be purposefully avoiding and abusing the word filter will receive an instant ban for however long the banning admin wishes to based on the offence.
    Faction Groups
    • Don't create groups that are impersonating other groups or are malicious to another person or group.
    • Don't create "shitpost/meme" factions, they will be deleted and the user warned. Let's keep the Factions classy and related to Fallout.
    • We have decided to stop accepting "outcast" factions from the main factions. One outcast group is ok, but having so many popping up is pretty boring. If you like the main faction then go with that instead. We'd preffer you come with your original ideas instead of making a X faction outcast because the main one is already taken.
    • Factions that claim to be part of another one will need that faction approval to be accepted, we don't want people claiming to be part of the NCR but having their own faction just to be the "leader" of it without being part of the actual faction.
    • You will need a recruitment thread here for your faction. If you don't have one, you need to make one now. Remember that factions are to gather people to join and play with you, not just a cool tag on your profile and a way to capture bases alone.

    If in doubt, talk to a staff member if you're not too sure about something. We can give advice on content you might think breaks the rules. It's better than getting directly banned.

    Here's a little something for the people who read this - FRIEND-8B18-D530-80CF-B490
