Realm Media admins and moderators have the ability to edit and/or remove objectionable messages. Realm Media reserves the right to edit or delete any message for any reason, at our sole discretion. We will occasionally warn the user before this takes place, but we are under no obligation to do so. Reposting the same material or offensive post after it was removed or locked is grounds for an immediate ban. Public complaining about the removal or closure of any message or thread is grounds for expulsion.
- Multiple Accounts
Each user is only allowed one individual account per person. Creation of second or third accounts will result in the additional accounts being banned and the old account getting a temporary ban, with a term based upon the severity of the offense. After multiple violations, the ban will become final.

There is also a set number of maximum characters as well as other misc rules for signatures that is set by the Forum software and must be obeyed. Failure to follow signature rules will have your signature privileges revoked.
