    Welcome to MobiusForum.
    Thank you for joining and we hope you enjoy and are helped by the information
    our glorious members provide, that said , here are the Rules and Guidelines, you will need to know as a member.

    General
    ◦ There is always a place and time for a joke but don't go beyond the line and become a troll.

    ◦ Any and all forms of pornography, including hentai, are strictly prohibited; we are family friendly gaming forum, with no age-restrictions and all members are expected to behave in an appropriate manner.

    ◦ Advertisements or promotions for any other product, website, or service unrelated to Mobius Final Fantasy is strictly prohibited (If you want to link a helpful guide from reddit, kongbakpao, or altema, feel free).

    Posts
    ◦ Before creating a new thread, read the stickied thread(s) up top, and confirm via the search bar that your particular post or question has not yet been asked or answered. Duplicate topics will either be removed or merged into the original topic.

    ◦ When creating a new thread, make sure to post in the correct section on the forums. This can sometimes be difficult but do your best. Moderators reserve the right to move any posts to the correct section without notice.

    Use clearly worded thread titles and be descriptive. The more you say, the easier it is for the rest of us to understand and help.

    ◦ Before responding to a thread, read through previous posts in the thread and contribute something new to the conversation. Duplicate posts that provide no new information will be deleted. Off-topic posts or high-jacking posts will be considered spam, and removed by a moderator.

    ◦ While we don't expect everyone to be perfect at english, try your best to post in full, complete sentences (make your english/grammar teachers proud), with limited reliance on emoticons, ASCII, and obnoxious colors (Not a hard and fast rule but if every one of your posts has more fluff than content, a moderator may bring it up with you :p).

    ◦ Bumping old threads without related or new content is considered spam. You can bump your own thread after 24 hours or once there is something new to be shared. If bumped multiple times without any reaction from other members, staff reserve the right to close the thread.

    ◦ Do not ever share copyrighted material without explicit permission from the author(s) or listing sources/references.

    User Content
    ◦ Signatures and avatars must not show anything that could be considered sexual in any shape or form.

    ◦ The maximum allowable height of a signature is set at 250px.

    ◦ When posting images we prefer you use an image host like imgur or use the build-in upload button.

    ◦ All posts must be posted in the language of the sections the threads are in. Staff are excluded from this rule and are allowed to post in any language they deem fitting.

    Behavior
    ◦ There will be no use of profanity or derogatory statements - including anything offensive or inflammatory. Remember, we're a community of all ages, nationalities, and customs. A little respect for others goes a long way.

    There will be a zero tolerance policy on any racial/ethnic/gender/sexual-orientation based discrimination.

    ◦ Members are asked not to act as back seat moderators. If members notice a major issue contradicting any of the rules, they are expected to use the report button and give a proper description of the situation at hand. Don't be afraid to use this function. We will read and handle every report.

    ◦ If you feel a moderator is abusing his/her responsibilities or performing in an unprofessional manner, feel free to report them to one of the other moderators and we will handle it.

    CHATROOM GUIDELINES
    "Infraction System"

    The rules will be enforced with an infraction method using points depending on the nature of the situation encountered. These infractions are permanent and once 6 are accumulated, a temp ban will automatically come into affect and the ban will last 2 weeks. If a member manages to reach 6 points again after the first ban, the length will be doubled. Upon reaching the 3rd set of 6 infractions, the offender will be permanently banned from the site. Mods can overturn infractions on a case by case basis if deemed necessary.

    OFFICIAL INFRACTION LISTINGS

    1. If a member breaks a rule but does not significantly affect in a negative way another member, they will be given a single point.

    2. IIf the breaking of a rule causes stated discomfort or hostility to another member and not stopped, the infraction will be worth 2 points.

    3. These determinations will be made on a case by case basis. As it is by nature a subjective topic, mods will collaborate on fringe cases

    4. Any member helping to incite or further antagonize a dispute in progress could face infraction as well.​

    I was wondering where this was! Due to several chronic illnesses, I can't guarantee I will comply with the following guideline section:

    "While we don't expect everyone to be perfect at english, try your best to post in full, complete sentences (make your english/grammar teachers proud)"

    Am I still welcome to post? :(

    I'm pretty sure they just meant who talk in three word sentences per post or purposefully misspelled words. Or make super long posts without using any punctuation.

    We call that " The Great Wall of Text"
    or in Donald Trump language " The wall between logic and reason" , I think, we all pay for that one:)

    I'm prone to do this frequently though :oops:, my thought process is so messed up and incredibly slow, on top of that I have to avoid reading for more than 10 minutes at a time, or my head feels like it's going to explode. I run almost everything I write online through a grammar and punctuation checker just to be safe.

    Don't be so hard on yourself.
    From what I've seen of your posts, you're fine and don't have any reason worry.
