With every great community, there are the rules and laws that ensure people coexist peacefully. These forums are no different. There are boundaries to what is and what is not allowed. These rules are in place to ensure the Stardust Duel Academy continues to be a friendly place where members can learn and share information on a variety of computing and non-computing topics.
The rules to the World of Mutants are as follows:Advertising

-Material that is knowingly defamatory, illegal, abusive, threatening or harassing, is strictly prohibited. As with anything, you, as a member, should use good common sense when posting. In other words, you agree not to be a jerk. Posts containing personal attacks on another user will be edited or deleted with no warning or consent.
Right to Privacy
-You will not violate a person's privacy by publishing information against another member(s) will, information that is private and personal. If you violate this rule, your account may be automatically banned without prior warning.

- Posting the same question in more than one forum is not allowed. Should this occur, then only the thread in the most relevant forum will be left open; all others will be locked and subsequently deleted.Double Posting:
We cannot stress this enough. Do not post twice in the same topic in less than 24 hours. If you missed something and you wish to add to your topic. Please use "Edit" button and add anything you might have missed. Anyone who breaks this rule wll be issued a warning.
What happens if I break the rules?
At best your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse so please don't.
Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued a temporary ban - your posting privileges will be disabled for seven days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.
For persistent and or deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Nuked". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and your account will no longer function. If you re-register, your new account will be nuked immediately and any new threads/posts will automatically be removed, regardless of their nature.Suggestions:
In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:
1. Use common sense. Anything that you say or do carries consequences with it. If you find yourself questioning the nature of what you.re going to post, then it.s probably not safe to post it. Save yourself trouble and ourselves time, think before you post.
2. Always be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world of different ages, genders, and races. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
3. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum that you are posting in.
4. Make sure that you have followed #1 and #4 before posting.
5. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.
