What about short-style RPs?

What if god-modding is allowed?

What if it is a short-style RP?

What if it is an RP which you can RP in without the liscence?

Replace 'but' with 'and try to', and it will sound better IMO.

Sorry if I sound like a b*tch here, but it seems to me that these are rules for your RPs and not for the forum's as a whole. The stuff you described are really what any RP starter would put at the beggining of their RP, if they wanted those rules in their RP. What if an RP starter doesn't want those rules, and thus leaves them out of the start of their RP hoping everyone will kind of 'RP it their own way'? Then are they, by default, privy to your personal rules? I don't think this is very fair, nor is it 'the done thing' on most forums. Albeit there is the odd RP forum that all-out bans god-modding and short-style RPing, I thought we were more diverse and free than this.

I suggest re-wording it to emphasis further that this is all up to the starter of the RP, and not mandatory to every RP.
