General rules for across the entire forum

Each forum on this forum has its own rules that can be found in a sticky on that specific forum category.
Those rules describe what type of topics should be posted on that particular forum.

Every Clan Peacefull visitor is entitled to the respect of the other members of the player community. With this in mind, the following behaviour is deemed unacceptable on our forums

The following are rules to be followed on the entire forum

Forum RulesDefinition
No advertising other clansClan Peacefull is a clan on it's own and we would like to remind you that while you may be a part of another clan that you should respect Clan Peacefull as you would want someone else to respect you.While we allow multi-clanning we would like to remind you that advertising other clans via signatures/avatars or wording (Join clan ABC, It's fun!) is not allowed.
No being disrespectfulBeing rude to anyone in the clan or a visitor will NOT be tolerated.
No bumping old postsPosting on older topics on the forum are considered dead topics and posting on topics that are fairly old is not allowed. We encourage you if you could post on topics from today’s age.
No Cheating Clan Peacefull does not accept people who do the following: Account Trading, Bug Abusing, Cheating, Drop Trading, Macroing, Multi-Logging, Real World Trading, Scamming
No discrimination/racismAny form of discrimination or Racism will NOT be tolerated. This goes for insulting anyone's religious, sexual or other personal beliefs.
No double postingInstead of double posting (etc), edit your post (If that is the last post on the thread). Doing that will make it appear brand new to everyone else. Guests are unavailable to edit their posts. If a Guest double (etc) posts, please just ignore it. When a Staff member comes across the post, they will take the appropriate action of editing the posts into one. Please do not create spam by confronting the user about their double posting. Alternatively you may private message an active Staff member who will come along and edit the posts into one.
No flamingFlaming is posting messages that are deliberately hostile or insulting.
You may post your disagreement on a thread, but do so in a constructive way. Do not make a post just to insult someone else. Anything that could be hurtful to another person should not be posted.
No harmful linksYou must not post any links to executables or websites that may be harmful, i.e. contain keyloggers, cheating communities, password scams etc. This also includes posts that contain illegal content including; piracy, warez, hacking, botting and any copyrighted material (Without permission) is not allowed. The Staff handpicked several sites that we consider safe which can be found Here!
No misleading titles or linksPosting misleading links or topic titles only to get attention is not allowed. Your title or link must represent the subject in your topic.
No inappropriate languageIf you are unsure of what is covered by inappropriate language, just avoid using language that is censored in Runescape.
Post in the right forumAlthough most of our forum categories are self-explanary please be sure to do your best on posting on the correct forum.
We have descriptions under every forum category that tells you what the specific forum is about, you should read those before posting.
No spammingSpamming is pretty much just a post or a thread that doesn't add any constructive content towards the forum. This includes posting short and un-productive comments like a smiley “:’)” and “Lol”, anything uncalled for.

The following are actions that will be done when breaking one of those rules on the forum
