Welcome to the SMBX Forums! To keep these forums running smoothly, a few rules are put in place.

1. RESPECT THE STAFF AND OTHER USERS. The forum staff members are here to do their jobs, so it goes without saying that they deserve respect. All other users deserve respect as well; flaming, insults, and other forms of harassment are not tolerated. However, be aware that a lot of joking and sarcasm happens on the internet and you shouldn't take everything seriously.

2. FOLLOW COMMON POSTING HABITS. Don't make meaningless posts. In addition, if you're going to post in a topic that is more than a week old (or bumping), you should make sure the post contributes to the discussion. Try to refrain from double posting, as there is an "Edit" button on all of the posts you make to facilitate the need of adding more content. This is also an English-based forum, so please make your posts readable and structured as such.

3. NO MATURE OR ILLEGAL CONTENT. The SMBX Forums are patronized by people who are under 18, so please respect their situation by not posting any mature (18+) content. Illegal content is also not tolerated for obvious reasons.

4. MISCELLANEOUS OTHER RULES: Do not backseat moderate; the mods and the rest of the staff can do their jobs well, that's why they're here. There is a "Report" button on each post for alerting moderators of something you think violates the rules. Please also refrain from making multiple accounts.

The forum staff maintains the right to enforce the rules at their discretion. Any decision they make is final; if you believe a staff member is not doing their job, contact one of the administrators.

Considering this community's history of staff drama, I recommend having a consistent punishment for each rule, or even a multi-tiered punishment system based on intensity of violation/number of past violations, and spelling out those punishments in this thread. This is a small forum, but this is an easy way of holding mods accountable for any potential power abuse.

This topic was actually supposed to be locked, but thanks for the reply. We do need to bring back the warning/ban system; that statement is there moreso for the purpose of letting the staff decide what breaks a rule.
