Rules and Guidelines
To protect users, there are social guidelines that must be adhered to avoid an excessively toxic environment. Please see the current rules under Social Violations.
- Players can post text, tables, hosted images, and hosted videos (using BBCode).
- Forum posts are editable (only the time of last edit will be seen at the end of the post) by author and staff.
- Players can accumulate Karma through upvotes for their threads or posts. Downvotes can give negative karma. A player's karma cannot go below zero.
This is the category where Admins post updates to the game, downtime notifications, and applications for staff and the player committee. This allows players to stay informed about the recent happenings in Torn.
Players cannot post in this section.

A player's karma is a measurement of the likes and dislikes their forum posts have received. The lowest possible karma a player can have is zero, regardless of the number of dislikes their posts have received. Upon reaching a total of 1000 karma, players are given access to a special forum called "VIP Corner".
A player will not receive/lose karma in the following scenarios:
- The post is under thirty characters long
- The thread is locked or in the graveyard
- The thread is in your faction’s forum, company forum or elimination contest forum
- The thread is in Trading Post forum
- The person liking/disliking the post is a new player, or has not posted in the forum in a long time
- The person liking/disliking the post has been mass-rating a single user’s posts
Do be aware that once you rate a post, you only have a short period of time to change your rating before it becomes permanent.
- During the RESPO update the ‘Old Forums’ were archived, threads created before this update can still be viewed here.
