Hey there! If you want a space to discuss the Wario games, you've come to the right place.

Short vague guidelines like "Don't be a jerk, that's all!" may feel good and show you're all hip and cool, but in practice they never work. If you're going to post here. please be mindful of the following points:

1. Don't do anything illegal.
Don't post download link to ROMs, don't make threat of violences against public figures, don't do anything that could land the site in hot legal waters.

2. Don't post anything graphic, whether it's porn, gore or otherwise.
Discussion of your sexual experiences or preferences is not forbidden if it complies with the above point (though why'd you post about that on a forum about the Wario video games is beyond us) but it ideally should be held in clearly marked threads for that kind of content. Posting in a thread about Wario Land 2 to announce Captain Syrup makes you very hard is just weird, man. And if you're going to sign up here to post your fetish art (even if it's not explicit in nature), do us a favour and keep that to your deviantart page.

3. Be respectful.
Don't antagonize another member, harass them in private, or export drama from other sites. If you think a user's conduct is breaking the rules or that they're trying to get under your skin, contact us. We'll see what we can do.

4. Self-promotion is fine if it's done in your signature or relevant to the board.
(ie: posting your rom hacks or fan art in the fan creation section) but don't sign up just to hawk up your Fire Emblem fansite or whatever. It'll just be deleted.

5a. Don't spam.
Makes your replies meaningful, try to keep it all in one post, and if you bump a thread, make sure your content is a new development or adds to the prior discussion.

5b. Don't threadcrap.
Joke replies and the occasional teasing is fine, but if someone creates a good-faith attempt at a discussion you find silly, just ignore it instead of replying with a dismissive crappost or attempt to derail it. If you think a discussion breaks any of the rules here, use the report function on that user's post! That being said, basic disagreement is not threadcrapping. If someone makes a thread titled "Why Wario Land 3 is worse than ebola" and I reply with something that disagrees with all of the OP's point, that's just using the forum format as intended.

6. Do not post content that's racist, hateful, or discriminatory in nature.
And do not use slurs even if in jest. This is a forum about a children's video game series after all.

7. Don't bring in off site drama

Seriously, we don't want to hear about personal issues you have about other members on other sites or forums, not do we want to be a place where people constantly rant about the problems with said other websites. If you want to complain about that sort of stuff, get a Medium account or something. Or maybe keep it to Twitter.

On a similar note, we also don't punish people for their behaviour elsewhere. So if you're going to complain about how 'toxic' some individual is on social media/Reddit/Discord/ResetEra/whatever else, please don't bother. Everyone starts with a clean slate here.

8. Relax and enjoy the site

It's an internet forum about a video game series. A good one admittedly, but a fictional series regardless. There's no need to be super serious about everything and act like you're some sort of scientist studying everything to the most minute details.

After all, if the games themselves don't take themselves too seriously:


Nor should you. It's just a game.

I'll see what the others think about the signature thing.
As for low effort posts that's covered here.

Basically just don't be a jerk about it and don't overdo it and things should be fine. If you feel someone's being too passive aggressive or just being a jerk, report it and we'll take a look at it.

I think we need a rule that prohibits future members from making their own personal posting dumps, to prevent talkative members like you-know-who from clogging up the ''latest posts'' section with a metric fuckton of posts that no one is going to reply to, and to ancourage such members from actively partaking in conversation. Threads for personal art should be just fine.
