Any user showing a unnaceptable conduct (Ex: Showing a innapropriate behavior, vandalizing, etc) will receive a warning and if they persist, they will be blocked, which can be for a certain amount of time or indefinitely, depending on the severity of the situation and their violation historic.

If you see someone breaking our rules, don't be silent! Report them immediatally to a administrator on their message wall, where they will apply the proper punishment. We will possibly add more rules in the future, so if you want to suggest a rule or a change to the existing ones, do so here.
