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.

I still don't know what the "Swine" are.  

In this context I mean.  C'mon, I know about pigs.

Well, maybe not zoologically.

ok, I don't know what has rubbed Hack the wrong way, because  I have never seen a thread locked or non-spam user banned around here for anything. People are free to talk about whatever games they like here. You might catch some hell for your views on a game, cuz people here have the right to voice their opinions.

Swine (my definition): Any game or company that is promoted as being inherently better than traditional games based mostly on being different from traditional games. The companies &/or designers are also pompuos and elitist.

Some Forge games fit this catagorey and some people argue that White Wolf also fits here.

Rotwang, the Swine are people who hold ideals in gaming (arguably in other things as well) that the RPGPundit doesn't like.

It really doesn't have a concrete definition, it's a hazy "enemy."  What's cool is even though it's his board, his opinions are held by the rest of the community to be just as valid as...mine.

Nice image from the good doctor.  Puts me in a nicer mindset just looking at it.

Man, I could go for some of that sweet hammock action right now, but while Halifax has much warmer weather this winter than normal, its not warm enough for THAT.

Sorry to unbury this thread but I had a blast reading it and the rules...oops, guidelines...are great and had a blast reading the discussion about them.

LOL! Never heard that one before. And Swine was a new one too that I may have to pick up.

Great set of guidelines though, really. Those that don't/can't follow them on accident, well, I hope life treats them OK but I don't have much hope.

Nor was that the point of my "there won't be 50 pages of exalted" statement.  You'll note that the rest of the context of the statement involved saying that unlike other sites, there won't be specific "darling games" that get special treatment by the Admins here. Its more a statement about what I and the other admins won't do than any kind of proactive statement of what we will do.

Did this guideline change? Amber? Gnomemurdered?
Or am I not understanding the context, here?

The context of the statement was in reference to how on RPG.net, certain games are the "Darlings" wherein discussion of those games get a more preferential treatment by the mods than of other games. ie., you can slag D&D/D20/Palladium to your heart's content, while criticizing Exalted is likely to get you negative attention from the mods.

Amber has had its own special forum since forever, and now Gnomemurdered has one too; but this doesn't mean that people have to treat these games differently from others.

New poster here.

What happens when a user gets "sanctioned?"  Is it like a red card or warning?

"Sanction" usually means "permanently banned". When you are doing something that is blatantly against the RPG Site's Constitution, you get warned formally, i.e. you get told explicitly that if you keep with whatever shit you're doing you're going to get the axe and should knock it off once and for all. If you persist, you're banned. There are no temporary bans and no half-measures on the RPG Site. Either you're in, or you're out. When you're out, you're out for good.

Yeah, so when Pundit steps in and chides me for being offtopic, like I sometimes do. I listen and drop it FAST.

Welcome to RPGsite Libertad if I didn't mention it before. :)
