--- Quote ---  9 c. - Use of Furtopian logos, name, etc.   Individuals who wish to use either in part, or in whole, the Furtopian name, logo, or any other OFFICIAL Furtopian artwork/images located on the website/forums for items including, but not limited to the following: convention badges, signs, banners, tshirts, etc., must contact a Moderator or Admin and get permission first. You must state what graphics you wish to use, How they will be used, and where they are going to be used. The staff will then review an individual's request and will contact that individual in a timely manner with a response.

2/4/2011 - Rule # 6 in the main Furtopian rules changed from:

--- Quote ---6. No role-playing. It is permissible to do 'posing' and such in a post if it's helpful to the content of the post, however extended role-play sessions are not permitted except in the gaming forums.
--- End quote ---

New version:

--- Quote ---6. Minor Role-playing is permitted provided it does not disrupt or distract from the original topic.  Large RPs may be moved to a more suitable area if needed at the Staff's discretion.

2/6/2011 - Rule 9 a. in the main Furtopian rules has been changed.

Old version:

--- Quote ---9. a. Images in posts can be no wider than 700 pixels. This is usually enough to show all detail, without forcing people to scroll or download huge files. If possible, consider making them even smaller (400 to 500 pixels). If you really need to show a larger image, or if you need to show more than five, post them as links instead.
--- End quote ---

New version:

--- Quote ---9. a. While there is generally no rule to how large pictures can be in a post, Very large pictures are automatically scaled down to 700 x 700 pixels by the forum's settings.
Out of common courtesy, please consider making them even smaller (400 to 600 pixels and/or 500 kb file size or less) to help speed up downloads for those members who have slower connections. If you have more than five images to show at once, please post them as links instead.
