Open Thread of 2017
Please Read the OP before posting!

It has just turned to the month of February and it brings around a time where we have to close our previous Open Thread and introduce a new one. Due to the increasing states of Glitches in the previous thread and Guideline violations with the previous Open Thread recently acting like the Wild West, the Moderation team have decided to implement some of the old rules, albeit modified for the community in 2016.
================================================
================================================
The following content will be monitored
- Threatening language/Flaming
- Illegal content
- Posting about your life problems.
- Religious and Political discussion.
- Advertisements or posts with external links.

17/03/2016 - Telling people that they should self-harm or commit suicide will result in an automatic 7-day suspension, regardless of previous track record.

10/04/2016 - Posting Auto-Play Video's on the forum will get you an automatic ban. it lags up the thread and hurts people's ears if they are not using an object blocker in their browser.

Please remember that normal guidelines do apply to the Open Thread.
http://forum.spore.com/jforum/posts/list/4.page

UPDATE: 02/02/2016
After trialling out the first Meme Monday and seeing that everything has remained nice and fine, I'm going to relax the rule as a sign of trust. Meme's 24/7 for everyone as of now. If you haven't checked the OP for the other changes, it would be advisable to check out a few changes made to the OP to relax and simplify some rulings. As long as everyone remains sensible with their posting and we don't end up with the great flame & spam wars of 2016 occurring then we should be good to return to normal. Thank you everyone.

Everything else is fine. Rules may be subjected to change at any time.
================================================
================================================
We also have two other Open Threads, each dedicated to particular topics. If you'd like to discuss these topics, please go to the appropriate thread for them.

Gaming & Media Open Thread - Discuss games, music, movies, TV, books, and anything related to those topics.

Art Open Thread - Post your drawings, comics, music, stories, and any other art you'd like to share or discuss.
================================================
================================================
For reference, here are the previous Open Threads (which have been closed and replaced by the new ones):
July 2015 - February 2016 Open Thread (845 pages)
October 2014 - July 2015 Open Thread (455 pages)
May 2012 - October 2014 Open Thread (1228 pages)
July 2011 - January 2012 Open Thread (901 pages)
================================================

Not only is this thread more restricted, it also came outta nowhere without a single warning.

- Sexual-themed discussion.

Does that include stuff like what you'd find on the Female Form Thread? It isn't exactly sexual per se, but some folks around here will say (or draw) things in response to such creations, so I figured I should check in ;-;

Let's make it a rule that you stop putting art in the general open thread too?
