    Do not use elements that are sexually charged or suggestive.
    Do not use elements that disparage others or present them in a false light.
    Do not use elements that are overly cruel, grotesque, or violent.

    Under no circumstance may profile elements designed by other members, regardless of their involvement in PotM, be used for the contest. Colloquially known as 'ripping', it encompasses blatant copying of any element beyond fonts and general color schemes. Each PotM submission must be a unique profile, thus profiles must not be substantially similar to another participant's submission. Collaboration is acceptable, but only insofar as discussing technical difficulties and general concepts. Collaboration at a reasonable level will not result in substantially similar profiles. This rule is enforced at all times, and ignorance is not an excuse. If a participant is suspected of cheating, please report it promptly to the host.

    Additionally, all participants are expected to maintain a certain standard of sportsmanship. The submissions done by fellow participants, regardless of overall quality, may never be publicly demeaned in any sort of manner. Constructive criticism is acceptable, but should never include negative words such as 'bad' and 'terrible', and certainly not comments that may easily be construed as insults. Similarly, participants may not publicly state that their submission deserved to place higher than another member's submission. The judging process is fundamentally impartial from start to finish, and largely subjective withal. Everybody is entitled to their own opinion, but past a certain degree, it should remain unspoken.


    Cheating will result in a ten-day ban from the entire NB site, and a permanent ban from the PotM contest.
