Rules

Be kind to everyone

Do not call people names or try to bring someone down. If you think someone has done something wrong, you are allowed to say what they did and why you think it's wrong in a positive and kind manner. Be the type of person you would want to encounter here. If you wouldn't want to be on the receiving-end of a comment, then don't say it.

Do not make pointless threads/posts

If the post/thread that you are about to write won't contribute in a positive way to the community but would only bring hate, then don't waste your time on it. Instead, try to contribute to the positive changes which you'd like to see happen.

Title threads appropriately

The title of your thread should be a summary of the content of it. Any thread that has a misleading title will result in a thread lock. If you have feedback on something you don't like, don't bring hate to the title. Instead of "The New Update Sucks!!", title it something like "Feedback on recent changes".

Do not generalize

If a Trainee does something bad and you want to report it, say "a Trainee named John54 is abusing their power". Do not say "DeityMine staff are abusing their power". This is extremely offensive to the hard working staff that follow the rules. If you encounter abusive staff members, submit proof through a Support Ticket so that we can make sure the situation is dealt with. This applies to all negative generalization.

Be constructive and positive

Your goal should always be to make DeityMine a better place. If you have some feedback/criticism, you MUST think about how the problem could be solved, and post some suggestions on what you think we could do. All criticism MUST be accompanied by constructive suggestions on how it could be fixed/improved. Keep in mind that criticizing an idea is not the same as attacking someone's person. You can be honest and say you don't agree with someone's idea, but just make sure that you're actually offering criticism and not falling into "ad hominem".

Constructive criticism is the process of offering valid and well-reasoned opinions about the work of others, usually involving both positive and negative comments, in a friendly manner rather than an oppositional one. Constructive criticism should not defame anyone or hurt anyone's feelings.

Do not spread hate

If you don't like something that has happened, please post it in a mature fashion. Do not make threads trying to convince other people of how terrible something/someone is. Do not write long paragraphs about how much you hate something/someone. Your goal should be getting problems solved in a fashion which is as efficient as possible. It shouldn't be to see how much attention you can get, or how many people you can get to rally behind your cause. Please help us in creating an atmosphere where problems can be dealt with quickly, efficiently, and without added drama or hostility.

Do not be involved in drama

Drama will likely happen every once in a while. And when that happens, people tend to join in on the discussion and give their opinions on the subject. Don't! It's simply none of your business to be involved in those dramas and it is likely to bring you punishments too. When you notice something is not right, simply send a Private Message to one of the forums staff or admins. Let the staff resolve the issue.
