If they continue to use unapproved avatars, they will be warned three times. If after three warnings they continue to disobey the rule, they will not be able to have avatars on the forum any more.

The following books are not allowed to be promoted on this forum: >>Harry Potter >>The Inheritance Trilogy >>Star Wars >>DUNE >>The Bartimaeus Trilogy >>His Dark Materials >>Artemis Fowl >>Any type of Anime, manga, etc >>Books promoting false religions DISCUSSIONS: No discussions outside book discussion are allowed on the forum unless in PM's or in the private section set aside for discussions between a couple members. We had a section for discussions, but because of the stress involved and the time taken up with keeping it friendly, we closed it. Please do not try to start any discussions on the public forums. Any topics for discussion will be closed and the author notified. FORUM ETIQUETTE: Please do not double post. One or both of the posts will be deleted by the Administrator or a Mod. Please do not post in big letters all the time or use excessive exclamation points in every single post you make. These are simple things that should be avoided, as they make the forum more cluttered-looking and harder to read. IMAGES: Do not post images of yourself on the forum! If you do, the image will be removed and you will receive a warning PM about it. Also, from now on please do not post images by uploading them onto the forum. It is taking up way too much of our web space. To find out how to post your images, please look here-->Posting Images LANGUAGE: Members who post obscenities or any type of innuendo will be put under Restricted Access immediately. Foul language will not be tolerated by the Administrator. This forum is meant to be for users age 13 and up. LINKS: All links must be approved before they are posted on the board or entered into profiles or signatures. Links to MySpace, Xanga, Freewebs, Blogger, or any other free Web site or blog services are not allowed in profiles. MOVIES: Because this is a book-centered forum, movie topics will be limited. All topics must be approved by the Administrator. ANY MOVIES promoting evolution, witchcraft, or any false religions CANNOT be promoted on this forum. Also, because many books are made into movies, please check list of restricted books before asking to post a topic for the movies made from those books, as they are not allowed either. MUSIC: Again, because this is a book-centered forum, music topics will be limited. The Administrator will not tolerate the promotion of hard rock music or any type of secular music on this forum. All genres must be approved. RELIGIONS: This is a Christian forum. False religions (i.e. Buddhism, Wicca, Mormonism, New Age, etc) are not to be promoted on this board. If you do not follow Jesus Christ and believe that His Word is Truth, then you have no business on this forum. SIGNATURES: All signatures must be approved if outside the signatures provided by the Administrator or if they are outside the following categories: >>The Lord of the Rings Graphics/Quotes >>The Chronicles of Narnia Graphics/Quotes >>Bible/Inspirational/Christianity Graphics/Quotes Size Limit for Signatures: Large signatures are not allowed, as they only serve to distract from the forum. If a memberís signature exceeds the limits stated below, it will be removed and a notification issued by the Adminstrator. You may either use text or an image. Not both. Image Size Limit: 40 pixels tall by 400 pixels wide Text Size Limit: 5 lines of regular-sized text (large text not allowed) Users will be notified if they use an unapproved signature outside the categories. If they continue to use unapproved signatures, they will be warned three times. If after three warnings they continue to disobey the rule, they will not be able to have signatures on the forum any more. WRITINGS: Fiction and poetry, etc, are no longer allowed to be posted on the KAK forums. The Writing Room is closed permanently and no writings may be posted on the KAK forums. Any writings posted will be removed and the author notified.
