This board was started on: September 5th, 2019, 7:08 (24-Hour, UTC -5)

Note that the rating for the board is PG-13 and may have some profanity!

These are the rules for the forum! Please follow them! The rules! Read these please! (6)
We are a laid back community, so we just have the obvious rules that you would expect on any other forum!
Yes, I know that this topic is long as heck, The rules! Read these please! (7) and looks very intimidating, but all you really need to do is just read the bolded headers of each rule to get the gist of what they're supposed to be! Any questions that you may have will most likely be answered in those descriptors if you aren't sure! And if you STILL can't do that, then skip over to viewtopic.php?p=9377#p9377 , read through that, and yurr done!
Remember that most of these rules also apply to Moderators too!

Also, in case you need them, here are the links to the Privacy Policy and the Terms of Use (which are COMPLETELY irrelevant to the ACTUAL board rules, so don't take them as such! The Privacy Policy is important though!):
Privacy Policy: ucp.php?mode=privacy
Terms of Use: ucp.php?mode=terms (Don't take these as such! The ACTUAL Terms of Use are in this thread, which you SHOULD BE READING right now!)

DISCLAIMER!

We reserve the right to refuse any member access to any features, forums, or the board as a whole, for any reason (specified or not)! This board may go offline for any reason (specified or not), and we are NOT obligated to answer or change anything on behalf of ANYONE except where required by US law!

We try our best to prevent these from happening, but cannot guarantee any preventions!

Remember that this forum is private property owned, run, and managed by Tiger21820, and posting here is actually a privilege, not a right! And as such, almost NONE of these rules shall apply to Tiger21820 except where required by US law! THAT'S RIGHT! TIGER IS (PRACTICALLY) INVINCIBLE!! MUAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

If you have any problems with permissions (such as not being able to post in a forum when you are supposed to, or having moderator permissions when you are not a Moderator) let me know!

WARNING FOR INACTIVE MEMBERS: ANY MEMBERS WHO JOIN BUT DO NOT ACTIVATE THEIR ACCOUNT WILL BE DELETED WITHIN 1 MONTH'S TIME AFTER JOINING! PLEASE ACTIVATE YOUR ACCOUNT IF YOU JOIN!

0. Nintendo DS Central registration bonus: (Effective August 14th, 2020)
If you came from Nintendo DS Central, then you can be upgraded straight to a NDSCentral Veteran! All members who signed up to Nintendo DS Central PRIOR to September 5th, 2019 will be upgraded to a NDSCentral Veteran! If I recognize your name, then I will most likely do it as soon as I see you! But if I don't, either PM me (Brand New Members can use the PM system), or mention it on your Introduction topic(if you decided to make one)! Make sure you post a link to your Nintendo DS Central profile, so I can be sure it's you!

Also, however many points you may have on Nintendo DS Central will be applied to your account when you join!

1. When you register, you will be a Brand New Member!
Brand New Members do not have the ability to post in the Spam Forum, Forum Games, or the Advertising Forum! They also cannot chat in the chat box, post in the Knowledge Base, or upload attachments! Once you make 200 posts, then you will become a Full Member, and then be able to do all those things! The rules! Read these please! (8) The rules! Read these please! (9) You can do it! The rules! Read these please! (10) The rules! Read these please! (11)

2. Be respectful to everyone!
No flaming, bullying, trolling, hateful language, racism, religious persecution, and all other similar behavior! Profanity is allowed here to an extent, but remember that younger people may post here, so please keep it to a minimum or censor it! Pejoratives on the other hand are definitely NOT okay, and the use of such words will get you warned! Gaslighting is grounds for banning, so DON'T DO IT!! The rules! Read these please! (12) The rules! Read these please! (13)

We do not enforce the censorship of any words here, and it is your responsibility to choose what words you use and how you use them when you post! The staff will NOT be held responsible for ANYTHING that is posted here!

If you joined just to be a troll and spam the forums, then we can guarantee that you will be banned faster than you can say "D'OH!" Think about that! The rules! Read these please! (14) The rules! Read these please! (15)

Flamebaiting, roast me threads, or asking members to attack or insult you, even as a joke, are also banned, because let's be honest: Who wants others to say terrible things about you, just as a joke? Such threads will be closed, and if it gets prevalent, warnings or even bans will be handed out! C'mon guys, you're better than that!

If you post anything (links, graphics, sounds, etc.) that pose (or encourage) health risks such as triggering seizures from strobe flashers without adding any warning (and out of malice), then we have no choice but to permanently ban you from the forums! Even if there is no incident, simply posting such content is enough to get you banned!

3. No ROMs, cracks, warez, viruses, plagiarism or other illegal content!
If you want to share a ROM hack, please upload an ips or bps patch of it in a compression format (e.g. zip, rar, 7z, etc.), or just as an ips or bps patch (You can attach IPS or BPS patches to your posts!)! Please don't link to places that share ROMs either! (Sonic Retro is the ONLY exception, but please don't post, or link to any of the ROMs here!) We don't condone piracy here at Nintendo 3DS Central! If you want to share those illegally downloaded action movies with lots of guns, explosions, screaming, and death, take that elsewhere! I'm sorry to say that if you do get in trouble for doing it, we cannot vouch for you!

DANGER!!! DUE TO NINTENDO GOING TO WAR ON ANY (AND I MEAN... ANY!!!!) AND ALL KINDS OF FAN GAMES WITH NINTENDO'S IPS, IN ORDER TO PROTECT YOU, ME, AND ALL OF NINTENDO 3DS CENTRAL, ALL FAN GAMES FEATURING NINTENDO'S IP ARE PROHIBITED FROM BEING HOSTED HERE UNTIL SOMEBODY CAN WIN THIS WAR AGAINST NINTENDO (GOOD LUCK, NINTENDO DEFYERS! WE BELIEVE IN YOU! The rules! Read these please! (16) )!!!

However, homebrew ROMs are acceptable! If there's any homebrew that you made yourself, by all means, share it with us! Just make sure you were the one who made it! And think twice where you decide to post it! See above for the one major exception! The rules! Read these please! (17) The rules! Read these please! (18)

Basically, if it's prohibited by US law or hostinger's terms of use, then it's prohibited here! The rules! Read these please! (19) The rules! Read these please! (20)

We also do not permit plagiarism here on Nintendo 3DS Central! If copying, linking or uploading anything from anywhere, please cite a source or give credit! Also, make sure you aren't stealing other people's bandwidth! If anyone asks you to remove something, please do it! If you don't, then the staff WILL!

Also, video game FAQs are (often) copyrighted content! Please do not link to, copy anything from, or upload an attachment of any FAQ from sites such as GameFAQs unless:
1. The author(s) has/have expressly mentioned that linking is fine,
2. The author(s) has/have explicitly gave you permission to do so, and you will need to show proof of it,
3. It is your FAQ!
4. The FAQ belongs to me, Tiger21820! I hereby grant full permission to anyone to upload, copy, or link to any and all FAQs published by me for use anywhere on this site! You must not charge any money, or forum points to use them, and make sure that you give credit!

All unauthorized FAQ links, posts, or attachments will be removed! Repeated actions will result in warnings!

If anyone wants anything of theirs removed from the forums, either post it in , or e-mail me at Tiger21820@gmail.com, and we will remove it! Under penalty of perjury (maybe, depends on if you're actually threatening the forums or not, and being a dick about it! I wouldn't try it, you don't know what we're capable of doing! The rules! Read these please! (21) The rules! Read these please! (22) The rules! Read these please! (23) ), you must provide proof that you are the owner or authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive copyright that is allegedly infringed!

4. Respect and obey the staff!
That goes without saying! AND NO BACKSEAT MODERATING! If you want to be a moderator, you can apply here if there are any positions open!

5. Please no explicit content!
p*rnography, henti, and anything related shouldn't be here! Whether they are photographs, drawings, or anything else, any images (or discussion in a public forum) that portray genitals, fluids or are sexual in nature will be deleted (attachments, links and text), and the users will be cautioned (verbal warning on first offense) or warned and will have their posts locked (except in ONE specific forum)! This is a PG-13 forum!
CHILD p*rnOGRAPHY WILL NEVER, EVER BE TOLORATED HERE ON NINTENDO 3DS CENTRAL, AND IF ANYONE EVER POSTS SUCH CONTENT, THEY WILL HAVE THEIR ACCOUNT DELETED, THEIR E-MAIL AND IP ADDRESSES BANNED, AND WILL BE REPORTED TO THEIR COUNTRY'S VERSION OF THE F.B.I.!!!! DO NOT EVER DO THIS! IT IS SICK, AND PUTS THIS FORUM IN JEPRODY!
Etchi Lewd images (very revealing apparel, almost nude, but no genitals shown) are POSSIBLY ok, just as long no actual genitals being shown, and they are not photographs of actual people (Drawings are fine)! Make sure you put questionable images in spoilers, and tag them as such! If these are not at least put in spoilers, the images may be removed! When in doubt, give me a shout! The rules! Read these please! (24) The rules! Read these please! (25) The rules! Read these please! (26)
Animation with brief nudity in YouTube videos is fine, but you MUST tag it as such!
Nudity from actual people is NOT permitted in any medium!
ALSO, NO VORE! IT ISN'T FUNNY NOW, IT WAS NEVER FUNNY THEN, AND IT WILL NEVER BECOME FUNNY! The rules! Read these please! (27) The rules! Read these please! (28)

6. Infractions
We don't have a defined infraction system (except for posting forbidden links, see lower posts), so we will generally issue warnings for simple violations (such as spamming, trolling, flaming, posting ROMs "by mistake", etc.), and bans with lengths that are appropriate with more serious violations... If you are banned, wait for it to end, appeal it if you feel like the reason or length wasn't appropriate, don't reregister to bypass outstanding bans... WHATEVER! We're laid back, so we'll just say 5 warnings equal a 5 day ban, and expire after 90 days... that sound good? Good! The rules! Read these please! (29) The rules! Read these please! (30)

Contact me at Tiger21820@gmail.com if you need to appeal a ban! Appeals only apply to your account, you cannot appeal on behalf of another member (sorry!), and you can only make 1 appeal for the current ban!

If your appeal fails, then that's it, wait for it to end! If your appeal is successful, one of two things will happen: Your ban will be overturned, or you will have the ban time reduced! In the case of a ban shortening, these are final! You won't be able to get the same ban shortened any further, so take that, or leave it!

If you are ever warned or banned by mistake, either PM me, a Co-Administrator, or Moderator, or e-mail me at Tiger21820@gmail.com, and we will get around to removing them for you, as well as restoring any deducted points! Make sure you specify any messages related to the warning or the ban, and who accidently issued the warning or ban! I will contact the person who issued the infraction to make sure that it was indeed a mistake! Please understand that we NEVER EVER arbitrarily issue warnings or bans to ANY members for no reason (there are consequences for doing so!), so the likelihood of that ever happening is very slim, but it could happen!

REMEMBER! There is no excuse for failure to read the rules in any case! At the bottom of this topic, one can view the last 255 members who visited it! That means the staff will know whether you read them or not! Ignorance is not an excuse! Remember this well! The rules! Read these please! (31) The rules! Read these please! (32)

7. Off-site disputes will not be punishable, but leave them out of Nintendo 3DS Central, please!
My policy is to give members the benefit of the doubt! As such, we will not give out infractions for anything you may have done outside of Nintendo 3DS Central! Whatever may have happened is between you and them, not us! But please, leave Nintendo 3DS Central out of it! We're innocent!

Don't dramatize on how you got banned by that moderator you did not like, or how that one member said something awful and called you a horrible name! Those guys are probably not members here, and you are, so don't worry! But if they end up joining here and you and them start getting into it, then it is NOW our problem, and all of you will be dealt with in accordance to OUR rules, which means that you and them may be warned or banned!

So please keep off-site disputes where they are, we are not them, they are not us, we don't care, blah blah blah... We only deal with things that happen HERE, Ok?

Anything that happened on Nintendo DS Central also isn't relevant here! We won't dwell on the things that happened on the old forums here and vice versa! If you get banned there, you won't be banned here, and if you get banned here, you won't get banned there... Nintendo DS Central is currently read-only, so this doesn't apply right now!

8. Sockpuppeting/alternate accounts must be approved by Tiger21820, or a Co-Administrator!
Any current alternate accounts by anyone that have been currently registered before June 27, 2022 may continue being used!

All future accounts that have very similar names, and/or matching IP addresses/email addresses without my permission will be permanently banned! We will send an email to the suspected alternate's email to confirm that you did not make this account! Any repeated sockpuppeting can be met with warnings and or a ban! Any ban dodging will result in your privileges to participate in Nintendo 3DS Central being permanently revoked!

9. No spamming, stay on topic, post in English, blah blah blah, spam in the spam forum all you want when you earn it, AHHH SCREW THAT, LET'S JUST GET GOING ALREADY!!! Welcome to Nintendo 3DS Central! Please enjoy your stay here!! The rules! Read these please! (33) The rules! Read these please! (34) The rules! Read these please! (35) The rules! Read these please! (36)
