1. Inappropriate Language: Infraction/Ban
Many communities are composed of different backgrounds and beliefs. As such, this community is composed of different beliefs, morals, sexual orientations etc., and we take the value of equality seriously. Remember that each person will take an insult differently depending on these values.

  • 1.1 - Topics, posts, PMs etc., that are directed at a single member, or group, to either defame them of their reputation, character or to simply insult, flame them directly etc., will result in infractions or a ban from the forum.​
2. Inappropriate Content: Infraction/Ban

  • 2.1 - Material that can somehow insult women and males alike is not allowed on the forums. This includes material such as half-naked women, men, and media of such inappropriate acts (pornographic videos itself). This also includes text-based material in our threads, posts, avatars, profile page etc., and should the rule be broken - he/she will face a permanent removal from the community altogether.​
  • 2.2 - Inappropriate Content that provides media of drug use, bad behavior, and other various forms of content that are deemed inappropriate (at the discretion of the staff member) will be removed and enforced. This is not a community for such things and we do not want to advertise this on the website for our younger audience regardless if they know about it. This isn't what this community is for so keep it off.​
  • 2.3 - We will not tolerate inappropriate names that contain any vulgar language, hate crime, relationship to pornographic material, impersonations (members, mod, admin, etc.) or anything that would be considered inappropriate of any sort. Those who fail to comply with this rule will be requested to choose another username by a staff member (the member will have 24 hours to respond). After he or she has not responded or refused the change, their IP will be banned and the account deleted.​

3. Advertising: Perm Ban
Advertisement of another competitor statistic website related community (statsmice, MiceTigri) is strictly forbidden and a permanent removal of the community will be issued. There will be no chance of appeal!

  • 3.1 - Common known links (e.g. Atelier801, Youtube, DevianArt, CFM Links) is fine and will be commonly permitted. Links are expected to be to advertise directly to where they say they're going (e.g. advertising a YouTube link, and then it links to a whole new site; no matter if it's harmful or not).
  • 3.2 - Members wanting to advertise another link outside of Cheese-For-Mice related material can send a link to an administrator and await approval.
4. Spamming: Infraction/Ban
Posts that do not contribute to the topic or the quoted text in that is in some form keeping to the main post is considered spam, this rule has been broken down, read below:

  • 4.1 - Posts that consist of a single word (e.g. "help") will be considered spamming on the forums and a warning or infraction will be given per the staff's discretion. The exception to this rule are the boards (announcements, introductions, and spam/forum games).
  • 4.2 - Grave digging is the act of posting in a "dead thread", which is a thread that was not posted in for over thirty (30) days. Unless you're posting useful information towards the topic at hand, please don't do it.
  • 4.3 - Trolling is allowed on such speculations. Trolling is allowed if used in a 'professional' meanor. If used directly towards someone in a negative, or secret way to annoy someone off is not allowed.
  • 4.4 - Posting in the correct board helps us keep a nice, organized looking forum at all times. Failure to do so causes them to look cluttered, an infraction will be handed out if not doing so.
5. Misleading Links, Hacking, and Threats: IP-Ban
Punishments that are handed out towards members is one of the reasons communities maintain a balanced environment. Punishments that are evaded are not taken lightly if you feel like you deserve another chance then take it seriously and quickly make an appeal; please don’t make a scene.

Encouraging Others to Break Rules: Infraction/Ban
Members that are somehow encouraging others to break a rule whether or not he/she understands the rule will result in a temp-mute or ban at the discretion of the staff.

7. Discord
Discord is something for the use of general purposes without having to post on the forums, do not be mistaken; it’s a right. It can be taken away from a member at the discretion of the staff member(s).
  • 7.1 - Flaming another member in the Discord is a temporary mute from the Discord. The punishments can be harsher in Discord as most new visitors will notice this feature at first sight.
  • 7.2 - Flame baiting will and can be a mute from the Discord, it is the act of starting/causing arguments for no apparent reason or starting drama for no apparent reason.
  • 7.3 - Staff impersonation is not tolerated on the Discord and will be dealt with harshly, a member is likely to be permanently removed from the community altogether.
  • 7.4 - Advertising outside links that aren't permitted from section 3.1 is both a permanent ban on the Discord, and forums permanently.

8. Backseat Moderation
Backseat moderation is something that we simply do not allow because it causes drama throughout the community and questions on whether or not we are an authority figure or if the members themselves are. While we are all equal and should listen and learn from each other - that's simply how it is, we do not do this. Those who find something that needs to be reported or something of the sort, simply report it to a staff member, do not act like one and cause drama, this only causes an uproar.
