Full forum rules can be found at http://www.aetolia.com/forum-rules as always.
Aetolia attempts to foster a roleplaying atmosphere, but we can't do it alone. We need the help of volunteers (almost all of the Gods are volunteers) and the players to help nurture an RP atmosphere. One of the things that we've been told by many players is that interaction with Gods is very welcome and a big reason they like Aetolia.
That's great! But one of the reasons that Gods sometimes hold back on interaction with players is that they know they're going to get harrassed for it on the forums. Further, it's difficult for Gods to retain any sense of mystery or allure for players when they're reading the forums and seeing Gods discussed like they're (the Gods) waiters at a restaurant. We also discourage Gods from arguing with players on the forums, as it's not Godly, which takes away the only legitimate way for a God to respond to a player who is using the forums to attack Him or Her.
For all these reasons, from now on, criticism of the Gods on the forums that we deem inappropriate will result in post deletion or, in the case of those who insist on continuing after being warned, forum banning. This is at our complete discretion.
However! Nobody on our end is looking to forum ban people, and it's the kind of thing that would only be employed for extreme cases - either from an individual post that's way over the top, or a series of poisonous posts. We don't want to squash discussion amongst Aetolians of good will at all.
If you have constructive criticism to offer about a God that might be the sort that's too blunt to post to the forums, the appropriate thing to do is email Aetolia's producer. razmael -at- aetolia -dot- com
