Rules

/v/ is a board for video games and gaming culture. The 8ch.net global rule is in effect. In addition, keep it vidya-related per the board's subject matter.

  1. No spamming, flooding, raiding, or botting. Do not call for, advocate, post, or link to dox. /v/ is not your personal army.

  2. You must be 18+ years old to post on /v/.

  3. Not-safe-for-work pictures are allowed (including loli), but only if spoilered. If you are not sure whether something is safe for work or not, err on the side of caution and spoiler it. Porn dumps (3+ posts with spoilered or unspoilered NSFW pictures) belong on >>>/vp/ or any other porn board of your choice.

  4. Meta threads about 8chan, halfchan, /v/, its policies, bans, and users will be bumplocked. Exceptions may be allowed in case of important developments regarding 8chan. If you have objections to the rules, suggestions for new ones or want to discuss a meta issue with the moderation, please contact the /v/ staff at [email protected] Direct all meta discussion about 8chan to >>>/sudo/.

  5. Ban evasion will get you banned again.

  6. If you make a duplicate thread, it may get deleted, locked or bumplocked and you will be redirected to the already existing thread, provided the preexisting thread has not hit the bump limit. Continuation threads such as GamerGate x Edition, Video Game General #32 (i.e., threads about broad topics that are constantly remade) etc. will be deleted if they are made before the previous thread hits 700 posts or Page 13 to keep the front page from being cluttered with the same discussions.

  7. Threads made in a template fashion (Foolz posting) and console war bullshit like "PC will never EVER get Bloodborne" will result in thread deletion or bumplock.

  8. If you are deliberately shitting up, constantly derailing a certain thread, or excessively using an avatar persona, you may be banned and your posts may be deleted.

  9. Threads focused on e-celebs and the gossip surrounding them will be bumplocked. Examples include "[random YouTuber] hate thread," "Dodger thread," "What happened to Arin?" or "It's a Woolie episode." E-celeb-related news that are big enough to warrant discussion (for example, something that has an impact on the industry) may not be bumplocked.

  10. Dubs are allowed, but are limited to one dubs post and one reroll. If the post history contains only dubs, the posts will be deleted regardless of how many posts the user has. Do not post dubs in legitimate threads or generals. Dubsbombing a thread because you do not like the game or the discussion will be considered spam.

Additional Stipulations:

[Last updated: August 12th, 2016. Change log: added "excessively using an avatar persona" to Rule 8.]
