This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Help distinguishing between chat and insta-ban channels.
« on: September 06, 2022, 12:09:20 PM »
I see on some channels/form threads you can get insta-banned for going off topic while on others it is perfectly fine to goof off.  Unfortunately, there is no easy at-a-glance way to distinguish which channels are serious and which are casual.

Is there anything that the forum admins can do to color code the channels or something?  I would hate to get banned simply for cracking a joke in the wrong place.

That can still trip me up, threads that I thought were casual turned out not to be.

You are not going to get banned unless you repeatedly derail threads after being told not to do so.
