Dateline 7/2/2008: GUIDELINES FOR RUMOR SUBMISSIONS
Guidelines for submitting rumors for the rumor system:
(1) No vulgarity, either open or masked.
(2) No personal attacks. (i.e. Dartenian is an idiot.)
- Note that this may include personal attacks veiled as an event-related rumor (i.e. Dartenian should never have been named Commander of the Pirate Battalion, he knows nothing about spinach dip!)
(3) No mention of GM names at all.
(4) No OOC or OOG stuff.
(5) Spelling and general grammatical rules should apply. (This won't get your rumor deleted outright -- we'll edit it.)
(Note that # 1 and 2 are a bit looser in the Fallen.)
The release of rumors into the game remains at the final discretion of the approving GM. If a submitted rumor is deemed to not be in the best interest of the game or grossly disruptive in intent, the reviewing GM has the right to pull the submission.
Hopefully, this gives everyone a fair idea of what we're looking at when we approve/edit/delete rumors.
Note: Not all NPCs will give or accept a rumor from you. This is based on race/guild and sometimes gender.
