1. Be respectful of other members.

2. Do not post illegal content. Banned content includes porn and pirated materials. Also, discussion of illegal activity will be immediately removed.

3. If a story or poem you post includes mature content, please make note of it in the title of the thread. Also, it would be wise to include an author's note at the beginning of the OP to explain why the story warrants being tagged as having mature content. You don't have to go into detail. A simple "strong violence", "graphic content", "strong language", or "sexual innuendo" is enough for me... something to give other member's an idea if they want to risk reading it or not. A post is less likely to be deleted by my staff or reported by members if it is marked as having mature content.

4. We operate on the three-strike system. For severe violations, members will recieve two warnings (so-called strikes). Upon the third strike, members will be banned for one week. Further violations of the rules will result in an immediate and permanent ban. Some situations might warrant a permanent ban without warning... but this should not effect honest members who come to the site for its intended purpose. Such situations would most likely involve trolls and spambots.

5. Post in the proper forum! We have separate forums for overall, original creative writing, fan fiction, and poetry. I determined that poetry is a huge segment of creative writing, and it is worthy of its own forum. There are also boards for art and audio projects. We do not limit the artistic talents of the WBG to writing alone.

6. The Site Administrator reserves the right to determine what topics will be allowed. Because it is impossible to predict every situation, the rules may change at any time.

7. The WBG was established to allow members to express themselves. Variety is the spice of life and everyone has different views on religion, politics, and the world in general. We do not allow the promotion of any one religion or political view here. Feel free to express your views in the art you produce... it would be impossible to create art without your views, after all. We will not, however, allow debate to spawn from said art. We are here to help a person improve their work, not to belittle their views or persuade them to different ideas.

We should create a loop. That way when he gets back he can feel jealous that he's been out of it.

Rule 7 has been added. Take note. There have been no issues at this juncture (though I was close to going over the line once myself Wink).
