1. Noctis is semi-literate.
In Noctis, we type out full sentences and describe our actions to the best of our abilities. Correct spelling and grammar is highly desired and enforced. While we understand no one is perfect, we look specifically for the effort to better ourselves.
2. Respect. Use it.
Your parents and peers enforced it for a reason. Be respectful of other players and remember the golden rule - treat people how you would like to be treated. Flame wars, trolling, and the general slander and bashing of other players is not permitted and is an offense that will be dealt with by banning.
3. Spamming is not allowed.
Spamming, as in double-posting or continuously posting non-sense for either the purpose of trolling or gaining currency is not allowed and will not be tolerated. There is no excuse for this.
4.Plagiarism is strictly prohibited.
If anyone is found guilty of committing plagiarism, they will be punished accordingly. Not only is plagiarism illegal, it is prohibited on Noctis. First offense will result in a simple verbal warning. Second offense will result in a permanent warning on your account. Third offense will result in permanent banishment from Noctis. If you attempt to make an account after being banished and a staff member discovers it, we will ban your IP address. We will not tolerate plagiarism at all.
5.Please refrain from harassing staff members to mod your thread or approve your character's profile application.
We, as staff, are human beings. That means that we have lives outside of Noctis. It also means that we will not always be prompt and timely about approving your profiles and replying to your threads.Please take this in consideration when requesting a specific moderator to either approve your profile or mod your existing thread. A staff member will respond accordingly when they can, so please be patient. If you continue to harass a staff member, you may be given a verbal warning. This warning may or may not reflect upon your account.
6.You MUST provide proper credit to any faceclaims you have used.
There are absolutely NO EXCEPTIONS to this rule. Stealing is an illegal offense and is strictly prohibited on Noctis. If you have been guilty of stealing another person's artwork (meaning that you have not provided credit to the original artist or you try to pass your artwork as your own), you will receive a verbal warning. This will later reflect upon your account as an official warning if the problem persists. If you have received two warnings, your account will be temporarily suspended. If you refuse to clean up your behavior after having your account suspended or if you attempt to make another account and try to pose as an entirely different person, you will be permanently banished.
7. Do not use Sockpuppets.
This is a fairly commonplace rule and is also very logical. If you have been banned before, or have been warned away from the site, you may not create a new account.
Multiple accounts for multiple player characters is allowed, but not suggested.
