Now, all of us are a bit ruffled by the changes and downtime of this forum that occured recenty, but let's act like it didn't happen and laugh at other people's jokes like we used to. But, we still need rules.


1. That topic lists the rules that apply for the entire forum. That means here, too.

2. No dumb jokes! As in don't just say 'moo! hahaha funny' because it'll get 'baleeted'.

3. No political/religious/sexual/racist jokes. Blonde/'Your Mama' jokes that aren't sexual/political/etc. are ok, but anything else is a nono.

4. No more than three (3) smiles/emoticons per post! They're just clutter after that point, and in mass quanitites slow down the site.

5. No copy/paste responces (posting the same thing over and over again in same/different topics). These are considered spam and will be deleted.

6. I would perfer it if you didn't link to sites from Newgrounds or eBaum's World, because the former often has ads unsuitable for this forum's audience and the latter steals work from others. Instead, try to find it elsewhere; chances are you won't have much of a problem doing so.

Strikes can and will be rewarded to all those not following these rules, Rule #3 in particular.

The strike policy is in the next post (thanks iconoplast!) and is there for your reviewing fun.

Yes, I'm still alive...still alive...

Strike Policy

These forums operate a system to dissuade members from abusing the forums and/or each other. Abuse can take many forms and some of us have had first hand experience of this.

The Moderators of this forum have been empowered with the ability to award 'strike' points to members who don't follow the Terms & Conditions of the forum and any other general etiquette expected when taking part in this Community.

Therefore, if members fail to heed the Terms & Conditions of the forum, as we have seen in the past, or ignore requests from Moderators, they can expect to be jumped on.

The Moderators do not have to tell you if you have been awarded a 'strike', but they will regularly report any abuse of the Forum to the Administrators who will take action against repeat offenders.

Incase you're wondering just what might await you if you don't abide by the Terms & Conditions, then there is a simple guide below.

One strike will bring your future actions under close scrutiny by the Moderating team.

Two strikes will interest the Administrators, who will then pay special attention to you, and not in a good way.

If you manage to get three strikes, then you will find yourself banned from the forum for a set amount of time. This amount of time will depend on what you have done to earn those strikes in the first place.

Each strike thereafter, up to a maximum of six strikes will get you banned, again for a certain length of time to be determined by the Administrator dealing with you. When you reach six strikes, you're history. No discussion, no argument. The Administrator's decision is final.

Serious offences against the Forum or other users will result in an immediate ban.

All strikes will be wiped at the end of every month, apart from those with six strikes who will be permanently banned from the forums. The reasons for the strikes being awarded will be kept on file for future reference.

The vast majority of members will never get a strike as they conduct themselves perfectly respectably on the forum. The odd double post or less than three word response is not going to get you a strike. You will get a polite reminder from the Mods that you may want to carefully consider for next time, but if you respond badly to that advice, then they are perfectly within their rights to award you with a strike because of it.

We understand that people who are new to the board may make mistakes without realising it, so minor offences for those that have been here for a week or less will also be given the benefit of the doubt.

Thanks for reading.
The PPT Moderator Team.

As of August 14th, disciplinary actions will be taken against people who say anything akin to the following:

"that was stupid"
"that wasn't funny"
"i hate that joke!"


If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. This is a board for Jokes, not a board for critiquing jokes.

EDIT (Oct. 26, 2004): It seems as if stickies aren't attention-grabbing enough for some people. Since I can't put a neon sign around it, I guess I'll have to resort to going through every single post and enforcing this rule. I was hoping people would be mature enough so that I wouldn't have to waste hours of my time playing babysitter, but I guess I was wrong.
