Welcome to PokéSun! Please read the rules and other information, which can be found below.
These are very simple rules to follow. If you are a new member, please read them carefully.
If you have any questions, feel free to post a thread in the PokéSun Discussion forum.
Have fun under the great, shining, and tropical Sun!

Table of Contents

General Rules

Do not advertise other forums. (40%)
- This includes advertising in posts, profile comments, in your signature, in private message's, even in your user title. You are not allowed to advertise other forums (whether via link or discussion unless it has to do with a news story or other resourceful information), especially other Pokémon forums. This is just to keep community members from moving from our community, to another. If you are trying to help a member out by answering their question(s), just quote the post from the other site, and post it here.

Do not spam. (20%)
- Of course, spam is not needed at our forum, and is one of the most common things that happen around the internet. Such as one word posts, posts that doesn't have anything to do with the actual topic, and anything random are all considered spam. The only exception is The Daily Chat Thread, which is located in The Gaming Corner.

Do not bump an old thread. (10%)
- Do not bump and old thread on the forum, such as it being five to six months old. If you think it still has some potential discussion to it, then you are allowed to bump it.

Do not make multiple accounts. (40%)
- You are only allowed to have one account, though if you do have a sister or brother that would like to join, please private message a staff member about it before making one. Also, do not share your account with anyone else. Your account is for your own personal use only, not for anybody else.

Do not post inappropriate content. (50%, warning may vary though.)
- We strictly do not allow adult content (pornography) on here, since our forum is for a younger audience. Also, do not have inappropriate discussions on here as this is a Pokémon forum. We strictly do not want any dirty, profound, or perverted content on here.

Cursing. (20%, warning may vary though.)
- The only curse words you are allowed to use on our forum are "damn" and "hell". Other curse words aren't allowed on our forum, though. These words also shouldn't be used directly toward another person, such as hurting their feelings. Our word filter has marked almost every curse word out, but if you try to use them a lot, even though they have been filtered, it will result into a warning.

Do not plagiarize. (30%, warning may vary though.)
- Do not attempt to steal other people's artworks, graphics, writings, stories, etc. unless you have permission from the owner.

Do not "mini-mod." (20%)
- "Mini-mod" or “Mini-modding” means telling another member that he or she broke this rule(s), or telling a staff member how to do their job. Just report the post, and the staff of PokéSun will take care of it as soon as possible.

Community Disruption. (30%, warning may vary though.)
- Any disruption or problematic behavior towards the PokéSun community will not be tolerated. We like to keep the community as friendly as possible, without having any conflict or drama within the whole community itself. 

Avatar and Signature Rules and Guidelines

Your avatar can be the size of 150x150 or smaller, and it's file size can be 300 KB or smaller.

You may only have two images in your signature. Maximum width for the image you are using in your signature is 550px, and maximum height is 300px.

Other Information/Rules

If you are reading a thread, and come across a post that is breaking one of the rules, please use the “report” button. The staff will handle it right away.

Last Updated March 1st, 2017. | Banner by xKiYoMiNaTiONx.

Question: I'm a new member, though I don't know where to start. What should I do?
Answer: You can first post your own introduction thread in our Introduce Yourself! forum. After that, you can simply start posting around the forum to make yourself right at home.

Question: How can I view my profile?
Answer: You can simply go to the top-right hand corner, and click the link "Profile". It is beside the links "Private Messages", "User CP", etc. Your profile will have information about you if you have edited your profile, which can be edited in your User CP. You'll also be able to view comments that were posted by other community members on your profile, as well.

Question: Where can I find my threads?
Answer: You can simply go to your User CP and find some of your threads member's have posted in lately. If you want to view all your threads you've made, go to your profile and click "Find all Threads."

Question: A member has PM'ed me being rude and offensive, or has advertised his/her forum. What do I do?
Answer: Please forward the PM to a staff member, and we will take care of it.

Question: I got a warning that I think is unfair. What should I do?
Answer: If you think you got a warning that you think is unfair, please contact a staff member and we'll see what we can do about it.

Question: I have seen a post that is breaking the rules. What should I do?
Answer: Please report the post, which can be located at the bottom of each post, and a staff member will take care of it as soon as possible.

Question: I can't login to my account. What should I do?
Answer: First of all, do not make another account stating you couldn't log into your old account. What you should do is try to recover your password. An email will be sent to you with a generated password, and that should help you login to your account. If not, please email a staff member.

Question: Who is the staff of PokéSun?
Answer: You can either view the Forum Team page, or view the list of them when looking over the main rules above.

Question: How do I contact an adminstrator?
Answer: You can always email the administrator, Zueq, if you need certain support or other concerns at pokesunforum(at)gmail(dot)com. You can also view the Contact Us to view more ways to contact an administrator (or other staff).

Question: I want to be a moderator! GIVE ME MODERATOR POWERS NOW!!
Answer: No. If you ask, you will possibly never become one for asking to be one. We only choose members to become a staff member if you have been contributing, been a dedicated member, been active, helpful in someway, and so on. We won't always choose members that have done these things, but only if we are needing a moderator.

Question: I have a suggestion, idea, or complaint. Where do I post it?
Answer: Please post it in our PokéSun Discussion forum.

Question: How come I can't comment on a member's profile?
Answer: Either they have closed their profile comments so that no one will comment on their profile, or they only allow comments from their "buddies". This is also the case with PM'ing. You also can't comment on member's profiles if they have been banned.

Question: I see a member got banned. What did they do?
Answer: We, as staff members, are not allowed to disclose any information about how a member had gotten banned, when they get unbanned, and so on. You can make any assumptions you want, but no information will be given.

Question: What is Pokégear?
Answer: Pokégear is a notifications system on our forum where if for example, a person has given you a reputation, has quoted you in a post, and so on, you will be notified about it in your Pokégear.

Question: How do I change the settings for my Pokégear?
Answer: You can go to your User CP, and go to your Alert Settings to configure what settings you want your Pokégear to notify you.

Question: How do I earn Pokédollars?
Answer: You can go to the main page of the PokéMart to see ways how to earn everyday PD. You can also participate in the lottery to win the big jackpot! There are also many other ways to earn PD, such as winning in events and contests, too! Also opening up an art or trade shop can earn you a lot of PD as well!
