Site Rules

Section 1 - Introduction

Vermillion is a user based community, concentrated on Technological Development, Game Analysis, and General Discussion. Therefore, in addition to employing voluntary moderators, we allow users the freedom to act the way they think is best. This system is designed to provide an organic environment for users, while maintaining a certain degree of control against violation of site rules.

Therefore, while we do bestow several site rules, it’s up to the users to apply common sense to decide how they act. This structure is designed so that perpetrators will be punished within the social hierarchy of the community. Nonetheless, if you see content that violates any rule on this page, disagrees with your common interest, or has an inappropriate connotation; you are obliged to address it to our staff via the report button.

By creating an account you acknowledge and agree to behave accordingly to the rules below.
