What is illegal at your club while rolling?And was there are specific reason for it being made illegal?Are there submissions only certain belts(experience) can do?
BJJ,Judo or Submission wrestling I am interested in.
If there is anyone from Gracie Barra schools ? it would also be good to hear what there policy is.

Well, basically for no-gi neck cranks, leg locks (with the exception of heel hooks) and so on are okay, usually for gi we allow them as well. As with everything else you put it on slowly and use common sense; if your partner isn't tapping, maybe he just doesn't realise he's in danger.

White belts using footlocks/leglocks other than the Achilles lock is frowned upon, in my experience. People at that skill level can't be trusted to safely be on the giving or receiving end of those.

Slams are the only thing out of bounds while rolling. Lower body submissions against noobs is looked down upon; but that only applies for the first month or so.

Granted, I have only been training a little while, but at my school, slams, and ANY subs below the waist aren't kosher for us yet. However, I heard for blues and higher, it's best judgment. Nobody is out to hurt anybody after all. :)

No heel hooks. I'm pretty sure slams are illegal too but I do them all the time because I'm an asshole.
Neck cranks and leg subs other than the heel hook are fine. The instructor even encouraged me when I tried an Achilles lock on my first roll.
"[Fighting for Points] is doubtless very pretty, and invariably draws applause, but preferences should always be given to blows that do some business, to good straight hits that do something toward finishing the fight.
A man who has carefully trained for brilliant tapping play, will find himself considerably out of it in case he is called upon to do any real work."

Anyone have rules against compression locks?

There are no stated rules where I train, but the etiquette seems to be that you abide by the ruleset of the lowest belt. I.e. no kneebars on whitebelts, even if you are a brown.
I pointed at him [the panhandler], bringing my rear hand up in a subtle approximation of the double Wu Sau guard that is the default hand position in Wing Chun Kung Fu.
"Step away," I hissed.

Everything is open. Dipshits that twist fingers and toes get dealt with.
Douchebaggery is controlled by peer "influence".

I think about the only things that are discouraged at our gym are heel-hooks and kneebars for safety reasons. We don't deal much with leg locks of any sort anyway because they tend to be low-percentage.
