Do not discuss spoilers about new episodes within the Cbox until at least a week after the episode has aired, if you wish to discuss spoilers simply make a thread about it (Keep the title spoiler free aswell).
There actually is a proper warning system in place to a extend regarding this stuff. The thing was though that its in the staff exclusive section (basically the inner working of the site), the reason i had placed it here was simple. I didn't think that general members needed to know the punishment regarding breaking the rules, all they needed to know is that there are rules and they need to follow them (even though i about to explain the system anyway).
Whether a rule has been infracted upon severely enough runs on a case by case basis though and unless your doing something crazy over the line (spamming,constantly swearing even when told to take it down a notch,aggression to members and staff) you wont generally warrant a full warning. Basically we will tell you that you a breaking a rule (whether or not this warrants a verbal warning depends on how frequently or how much your have broken the rule itself.) if you continue doing it constantly after a verbal warning then we will issue a official warning (25% warning, that will show up on your account) and if you keep doing it after that then you will be given another 25% and another until you make it too 100% which is when a ban or suspension is issued. In some cases post may also be deducted from your account for constantly breaking the rules, but this is generally only issued to people who keep posting under the 120 word limit.
So pretty much don't worry, you'll get ample warning that your are breaking the rules before you have excessive action taken against your account. Let it be know that I have never had to ban a legitimate members from the Site and have only every issued out maybe 1 or 2 official (25%) warnings.
Here is the thing though, there are some exceptions in place for user friendliness, for example, you generally wont be warned for stuff in your character app, (incorrect template, canon character, Overpower weapons or abilities, History that doesn't follow the Site canon ect) You will be told you need to change it but warning for that stuff(the stuff in brackets) will NEVER be issued because your still learning how the site works and stuff. Pretty much the only way to get warned in there is the aforementioned spamming or being really aggressive to other members or staff.
In regards to reporting posts if you think its breaking the rules then just report it, I had I think 2 reported posts on this site since its creation so its not like i'm inundated by the reports. That why there is no system you have to run through with them, just report the post (gear symbol next to the post), Or PM me.
As for the swearing stuff, i'm referring to official swear words. So you can say stuff like Dam,dick ect no issue and even normal swears are not that moderated. Pretty much if you don't swear every second/third post you should be fine and if your are getting close to the line, we will tell you first.

This Roleplay is a prequel to Steven Universe to an extent with some slight retconing and its own progression to the story that will turn out differently to how stuff plays out in the show.Thanks to the message by Rose Quartz several gems are rising up to protect Earth and have labelled themselves as the Crystal Gems. Others on earth are remaining aligned to Homeworld though despite the isolation of Earth from Homeworld
All gems on earth are still stranded, the communication hub is still offline and all the space warps are shattered, it has now been revealed that this is the work of Rose Quartz and her small group known as the Crystal gems. They have rebelled against Homeworld and have chosen to protect the Earth (Trapping themselves on Homeworld to keep the warps down).
Now both sides are fighting among themselves along with fighting against the 'Corruption' a virus is infecting many gems turning most of them into mindless monsters, but those with a stronger will seem to becoming something more sinister.
The Game has changed now. The question has finally been posed, are you against Homeworld or allied with them. Or do you have your own agenda that may or may not been assisted by the ‘Corruption’. Regardless the seeds have been placed down and although it is only the beginning the fight for or against Earth and the corruption has begun. The choice is yours for how it is shaped on the Original Steven Universe Roleplay Site.
Orginal Opening Plot Here Thread That Changed Everything
Differances Between the Roleplay and the Show
*Thanks to Rose Quartz' message the Gems on Earth are entirely aware that the Homeworld Gems intend to wipe out the human race.
*The "corruption" is being treated like a virus due to lack of info about it on the show.
*Garnet, Pearl and Rose are assumed capture on Homeworld
*Garnet,Pearl and Rose broke the space warps to delay Homeworld
*Thanks to Roses Message gems now know what the Kindergarten was used for
