Brass Goggles has always and shall continue to portray the "lighter side of steampunk"  as coined by our retired founder Tinkergirl.  To that end we have a few general rules which apply to all sections of the forum:

1.  Please keep all posts within a Safe For Work (SFW) Policy. This means is that some material may be inappropriate for children under 13. Posts may contain, some strong language and innuendo, humor, mature themes, historical and fantasy firearms of the "Victorian Era", and some historical-political themes within the context of our 19th century speculative fiction genre.  If your post contains partial (upper body) nudity or other visual elements which may not be approved for viewing within an office setting the post must be flagged Not Safe For Work (NSFW). This nudity clause is written in specifically for historical photographs and Steampunk art. 

2.  You are expected to maintain decorum and behavior appropriate for adult cultural discussion.  This means that things which have been dubbed by the internet community as "trolling" are not allowed.  Other behavior such as Ad Hominem arguments (attacking someone's argument based on the character or physical trait of the subject) and assuming one or many persona with the intention to deceive (what we've dubbed a 'sock puppet') are expressly prohibited.  Bad or disruptive behaviour not listed here may also be identified by the Brass Goggles staff and dealt with accordingly. 

These rules are interpreted by our moderation staff and rule-breakers will be dealt with as the moderator sees fit.  Punishments like a private reprimand, temporary ban, or a full ban are handed out based on the scope of the violation and at the discretion of the moderator.

Purposefully seeking grey areas between rules and their wording and/or experimenting by seeing how far you can stretch a rule are seen as rule violations in themselves and may be acted upon as a rule violation.  If you are ever in doubt about your particular post, please send it in a PM to the moderator for the section you are using for a ruling before you make it public!

Anatomical specific guidelines:
This board is for the discussion of both the lighter side and potentially the darker side of all things Steampunk and biological in basis or attachment.  Whether that may be the language of fans, or patterns for a waistcoat, to the medical theories of magetism or mesmerism, even to the best way to make a cucumber sandwich, here is the best place for it.

Sales posts belong in trading and if they are found here they will be moved.

Minors may not post pictures in the pin up thread.

Using Brass Goggles as a vehicle to drive traffic to your own personal website is not encouraged, but not banned either.  Brass Goggles expects those promoting their own articles to provide a link back to Brass Goggles in the spirit of Cross Promotion.  Brass Goggles also asks that such articles be done as a conversation rather than an advertisement.  Failure to provide link back, or failure to conversationalize instead of commercialize their postings will result in promotions being removed from the forums.  Chronic offenses may lead to a temp or permanent ban.
