- Any type of debating and discussion is fine; but we will not tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks, purposeless inflammatory posts, one-word posts. Our decision is final to either closing a thread or suspending/perm-blocking a user! [We can also block you from our games due to any type of post or thread from a specific user that has violated our rules]
- Please refrain from posting meaningless threads, one word (or short), non-sense posts, bumping, quote-post (where you just quote someone and not say anything else), or any senseless post.
- Multiple or repeated posting in order to increase your post count is not allowed. You will be warned or banned, and a decrease will be in place. You had 6000 posts? NOPE! Now you have 400! Yes, it’s that serious. We decide how much we take away from you!
- Do not post about your account’s status. Example: making a thread asking about why your account was banned.
- Impersonation of a Moderator, Administrator, Support Staff, OGPlanet employee, or GM will automatically get you removed from our forums.
- Advertising, spamming and trolling is not allowed. This includes using the forum email and Private message system to spam other members.
- Do not bump in the same thread. You are only allowed to bump once per thread. Any double bump found will result as a double-post. (Do not abuse this for post count, you will be reset automatically).
- We also do not allow posts that are adult-related in nature or any violations that go against our OGPlanet community standards. The OGPlanet team will voice in on what goes against our community standards.
- Discussion of illegal activities such as software and music piracy and other intellectual property violations are not allowed.

- For future reference since we can’t anticipate every infraction, consequently we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way.
- You cannot post any affiliate or referral links, or post anything asking for a referral. Such posts will be subject to permanent ban.
- You cannot post advertisements or notices from other parties.
- We also reserve the right to ban anyone who violates the forum rules, as access to our support forums are a privilege and not a right. Don’t try to get around the rules; we will still remove you for implying it. This can also affect your account in our games in being either suspended or permanently removed.
