Please Follow the Forum Rules of Creative Novels. Thank You.

Violation of Forum Rules
Any violation of the forum rules will result in warning points (WP) along with a possible deletion of the infringing content. There are no "verbal warnings." Warnings points are points that are given and can compound. Once they reach a certain number, it can result in a ban.

User can't view warning points, but a notification will be given every time the user receives them. Duration of bans varies, depending on warning points accumulated.

Sometimes a ban could be issued without notification (usually for serious offenses), in this case, warning points notification serve as banning notification.

Serious offenses:
  • Using information on this forum to dig out personal information (privacy infringement, also known as "doxing")
  • Posting suicidal* content, terrorism, and or anything related to criminal activity.
  • Harassment and/or repeated insulting of other users.
  • Threatening moderators or other users in a way that tries to intimidate or ends up scaring the receiver.
Any users or members that disagree with the locking/deleting of a thread(s) are welcomed to privately message (PM) the moderator that performed the action.
*In the case you are feeling depressed or down, you are welcomed to make a thread in general so another user could cheer you up.

Reporting Violation of Rules

There are report buttons for posts and comments. If you happen to encounter a violation of our rules, report them instead of directly replying to the thread/status as it would often lead to off-topic discussion. For the same reason, summoning a mod to lock/delete/edit is not recommended either. Simply report or ignore the post content.

  • Please report all violators via the report button options available. Tagging a moderator to report a violator is not the correct way to report one.
  • If you have complaints towards a moderator/mod, send them or another moderator a PM. Don't post on their profile or make a thread about it. There is absolutely no need to make it a public affair.
  • Ban evasion will result in your clone being banned and will increase the time on the original ban.
  • Don't ask for or give links to pirated content.
