RPG Maker, though powerful enough to be used in professional development, is software made to be used by all ages, including minors. Because of this, the forum is PG-13 in both behavior and content. In the past there have been some discussions as to what may or may not be posted here and how to behave (always keeping in mind that some of the readers here are children). Most people here do understand that everyone here on the forum has a responsibility toward the minors reading here. Unfortunately, recently we had no choice but to ban a user from this site for behaviour off-site that originated here on the forums. We were called in by the parents of a member who is a minor, and they explained one of our users had tried to start an adult-themed discussion with the minor in an off-site chatroom. Needless to say, there was no reason this discussion needed to take place and the minor should be protected, just like all of our members here should feel safe and protected from predators. The offending user has, therefore, been banned from our forum. While we encourage all of our users to interact and be creative together, we do ask that those adults among us make sure that they are talking to fellow adults when it comes to certain non-game-related topics. We also ask that minors be mindful of who they are giving their contact information. If there is anything questionable going on, alert your parents and a trusted staff member immediately. We will take all allegations of adults soliciting minors seriously but our ability to intervene off-site is limited. We were only able to do so because of the severity of the issue and would like to remind our members that most interactions outside the website are outside of our influence. So everyone, please keep your posts civil, PG-13, and follow our rules. We do not want to ban users from here and we want a nice, creative community where everyone can feel safe.
