Sticky Etiquette and Forum Guidelines

    Etiquette and Forum Guidelines

    And now for the boiler plate stuff...
    Yes, every website like this needs some guidelines to keep some order to the chaos. Here we have just a few. Please read through them so you too can acclimate to Kig-O's policies and procedures.

    Self-Promotion is Spam

    This is a big NO NO here. All posts and images uploaded are reviewed by our moderators. If we find any questionable content, it will be remove or edited for further investigation. Items determined to be spam will result in a warning and lock being placed on the users account for an undetermined length of time. Self-promotion will be only allowed in the users signature and profile. While we do encourage users to post threads and images of their work we will not accept promotions for items such as masks or props in any threads. If a user has for sale any items please post these items in our "For Sale" portion of the forum. Repeat violators who post promotional content will be permanently banned.

    Language and Trolling

    Our community is family-friendly. There are young users and language should be kept within a PG-13 level. Vulgar language is not allowed. This constitutes the use of any kind of offensive, discriminatory, or otherwise inappropriate material deemed unsafe for younger members. Inappropriate language will potentially be removed and users will be warned.

    Do not post provocative, outrageous, or pointless messages only to get a response from others, i.e. "trolling." Repeat violators will be permanently banned.

    Lastly, if it is abundantly clear that a user has no intention of positively contributing to Kigurumi or cosplay discussions, combined with an abrasive, combative attitude, they will be banned. Users must demonstrate an interest in
    contributing to kigurumi and cosplay discussions, as this is a kigurumi and cosplay site after all. In other words, users who wish to do nothing but argue politics, religious and or other non-kigurumi and cosplay issues are not welcome as they do nothing to contribute to the site and are not worth the trouble and headaches.

    Personal Attacks

    In order to maintain a positive atmosphere, no personal attacks or insults will be tolerated. While discussions may become heated, it is not an excuse to result to attacks or insults. There is a difference between a passionate, respectful discussion and one that delves into personal matters. Think of it as debating issues, not individuals. When the line is crossed, the discussion may be closed by the moderation team. Violators will be warned and potentially banned.

    Moderators and Administrators have the final Word

    If you have a problem or a complaint, direct it to the administrators and/or moderators, not to the boards.The appropriate actions will be taken. We reserve the right to ban flagrant offenders when deemed necessary, with or without prior warning.

    Cross-Posting

    If you have something to post and you're not sure which board it belongs in, do not post it in more than one board. If the administrators or moderators think it would fit better in another location, it will be moved there. Duplicate threads only serve to create confusion.

    Signature Rules

    A typical signature contains the poster's name, e-mail address, website, and a favorite quote or saying. Excessive font size are not allowed. Anyone abusing this privilege will be warned and then have their signature removed until they acknowledge this guideline.

    Multiple Accounts per Individual are not permitted

    If you forget your password, use the password recovery tool, in which case you will be able to reset your password, given that you have access to the e-mail associated with your account. If you are still unable to login, contact our administrators.

    Again, please follow the above guidelines when posting on our message boards. If you have any questions, please contact us. Above all, remember to have fun!
    Kigurumi lives within all of us, let's build out community through kindness and understanding...
