rAthena Board Rules
While we try not to make the forums a federal prison, we have a few rules that we would like you to follow to make your experience in rAthena better. All members are expected to follow these rules or punishments ranging from a verbal warn, a warn bar increase, moderator preview (a moderator approves all your posts), posting suspension (can see the forums but not post) and a forum suspension (can't see the forums or post) will occur.
