Hello and welcome to spells of magic. It's great to get involved with the forums and message lots of people, but in order for everyone to stay safe and happy, read these rules and info.
1: Do NOT give your password to a single person, because they could change your profile, send messages and post things in the forum that are rude, compromising your privacy or making you look like a Fluff.
INFO: A Fluff is someone who makes false statements such as 'I am a vampire' or 'I am the child of a God' or 'I have wings' or something like that. Trust me, you don't want to be called a Fluff. It's very insulting.
2: Don't roleplay. Don't pretend to be someone or something you are not because it isn't good and you will probably get gagged. (So no posting in the forums or mailing anyone.) The gag may or may not be removed.
3: Don't be rude, or argue or contradict anyone. If you are rude, you will probably get gagged. Don't argue with people on the forums because noone wants to read your argument, it may turn into something nasty, and the Mods might have to get involved. And also, don't contradict anyone, because everyone is entitled to their own views and opinions.
4: Keep your information private. Don't post emails, phone numbers, addresses and so forth on the forums, and don't send it to anyone. Even if they are someone you know, people can still find it, so it's best to give it to them face to face. Also, posting your full name on the forums is also dangerous because that means you can be searched up and targeted easily.
5: Look on the forums regularly to check for news and ineresting discussion topics. Also, if you need help or if yu have a question that you can't find on the FAQs, you can ask on the forums. You will get a lot of response, and lots of opinions are good. You can also help other people.
6: Before joining a coven, be sure that you have the same views as the coven, and that you are willing to commit and participate and contribute to the group BEFORE applying.
All in all, you can really enjoy posting, mailing and getting involved in this magical society if you are considerate, helpful and think before you leap.
