OCD Rules

If this is your first time at Ordered Chaotic Discussions, welcome to our community forums! If you are here just to read the rules, please proceed below.

Please read the FAQ for the The Universal Rule of Civilized Discourse for being a great member of the community.


The following rules set out some additional specific restrictions within the forums.

1. No NSFW Content in non NSFW areas

Although mature content is allowed, (news, history, etc.) NSFW content, including nudity, graphic sexual content, gore, etc, is not allowed outside of the NSFW Category. This applies to both real and animated content (i.e. ‘plot’ gifs, nsfw anime content, etc).

2. No Illegal Content

Posting or linking to any content considered illegal in the USA/UK is forbidden. This can include, but is not limited to: pirated software, downloads of copyrighted materials you do not have permissions to redistribute, grey market keys or similar.

3. Off-topic/low-effort Posts May be Moved or Removed.

This is a forum and not an instant messaging service. Moderators reserve the right to move or remove posts when they are off-topic/low-effort to the original post or if they are derailing a thread.

4. No Doxing or Impersonation

Impersonation of any member of the community (including staff) is not tolerated. Doxing of any member of the community is not tolerated. This rule includes alt accounts. The goal of this place is to provide a place where any discussion can be had and alt accounts can be used to force and bully a discussion into going a particular direction.

5. No Discrimination of any Kind

Racism, sexism, or any other form of discrimination is not allowed on these forums. We want to welcome everyone to our forums, no matter their skin color, sex, gender, sexual orientation, etc. Derogatory terms meant to belittle or insult users will not be tolerated.

6. Each Category may have its own subset of rules

Be sure to check the category your posting in for additional rules that dont apply site wide such as the lounge category

7. Self Promotion

You are not allowed to self promote until you are TL2 and your post gets approved by a mod.

If a user is constantly getting “out of hand” they may be asked to read this a second time.

The moderators and administrators reserves the right to move/merge threads/posts when it is required. We may edit/delete posts and edit/lock/delete threads requested by a user or users, or if we deemed it in breach of the rules. Final decisions on moderation of the forum are made by us.
First time offenders will receive a warning. Second time offenders will receive a temporary ban. Third time offenders will be banned indefinitely. Note these penalties can vary due to the judgement of the moderator and severity of the situation.
