1. Spoilers Policy
Newly released content can be discussed on the forums in the appropriate Official topics. These official topics will now be marked with a [Spoilers] tag, indicating that you may find spoilers inside immediately after the new content is released (no 7 day wait). Please be aware of this before you read them!
Spoilers MUST be kept to just the official [Spoilers] topics. Topics without this tag should be safe zones for users who do NOT want to see spoilers within the first 7 days of release.
Step-by-step walkthroughs will not be allowed in the [Spoilers] topics. This includes walkthroughs as well as any majorly detailed explanations (such as you might get from another server that already has the content). Please wait at least 7 days from release before sharing this kind of detailed information on the public forums.
External links to step-by-step walkthroughs or other spoiler information will not be allowed in the [Spoilers] topics. Please mail other users or use your clan private forums if you would like to share this information.
Content released on other DinoRPG servers (FR, ES, DE) but NOT on the DinoRPG EN server will still be moderated and removed. The only content allowed in [Spoilers] topics is what has been released here on our own EN server.
Public Clan Pages cannot contain spoilers for newly release content until 7 days have passed from the release date.

The first offence will receive a warning for the whole clan, and continued breach of the rules will be punished with forum bans. Bans will only be for the master responsible.

Information on the forum in regards of legal terms
Freedom of expression doesn’t intervene on the internet when it goes through a private host (here Motion Twin).
In fact, legally speaking, Motion Twin could be criticized about the players comments on his site, that’s why the moderation existed.
In the worst case, the T&A can be invoked:
Words or other data (images, etc.) sent by users are under their entire responsibility.
Motion Twin protects itself by engaging the author responsibility from the moment he accepted these Terms.
Motion Twin reserves the right to remove any item sent by a user on its own initiative or after having been seized by a third party.
Then, we put in place for moderation: the user who has accepted the T&A has also agreed to see his comments to be moderate without notice or prior consultation and without consideration with respect to freedom of expression.
Do not confuse freedom of expression with the publication requirement.
Nobody can forbid me to talk about blue dinozs. But no one is obliged to listen to me and publish my writing. If Times magazine refused to publish my article on blue dinozs, it isn’t a hindrance to my freedom of expression. It's the same for MT forums.
In short: freedom of expression isn’t saying whatever you want on a forum; it’s the right to create its own forum elsewhere if the editorial line doesn’t please you.
Legally, this forum is not a public space, but a private space open to the public, just like a private house whose owner would have opened the doors to you.
