      I just want to state that these Rules and Regulations have not changed from the original version which were posted by past community managers. Besides minor modifications and additions, these are the very same rules which have always existed. I have just reformatted the layout for ease of reading and interpretation.

        [Reminder] Rules and Regulations

        Hello Auditioneers~

        Since it looks like there were a number of people who weren't following the rules, I'd like to emphasize that we do have our forum rules and regulations here.

        I'd advise rereading it again, and learning what you can of it so that we can avoid any issues in the future. Juuuust in case.

        While there is a marked and obvious leniency regarding these rules and regulations when it comes to the inevitable forum trolling, I'd like to think that we are still a civilized community capable of understanding basic instructions and, of utmost importance, capable of communicating with each other, even in situations where there are misunderstandings. You may view the nicer version of this message over in this thread, written by my predecessor.

        That said, if there are any issues you'd like to bring up, please contact me or a GM.

        Thank you very much.
