    Forum Rules

    Post by Darkblizzard960 on 7/22/2015, 11:21 pm

    The following rules list the most serious violations:

    1. No Discrimination - You may not insult members based on their religion, race, sex, political beliefs, or whether they are * or straight. This is worse than flaming, because it also hurts other members of the board who fall into the category you insult. This is a place where everyone is equal, and discrimination will NOT be tolerated!

    2. No Bullying - Do not pick on other members. The worst kind of bullying is where new members are picked on. This hurts the member as well as the board.

    3. No Flaming - It causes thread's to go off topic, and most importantly, it hurts the person being flamed. The victim may defend themselves against any accusations made to them, but may not make any additional accusations to the flamer (which also counts as flaming). Please report the post instead.

    4. No Profanity or Obscene Content - Such content does not belong on the forums. A censor system is in place as a backup. Please edit your post and tone it down before your timer runs out. To edit a post, click the "Edit" button right below it. Cheating the censor system is against the rules.

    5. No Advertising - You are not permitted to make money using the forums. You are not allowed to use the member list to obtain Instant Messaging screen names to harass people to purchase a product from you.

    6. No Double Posting or Spamming - You may not post more than once in a row in the same thread. Posting lots of times in a row reduces the quality of the board. Double posts will be merged into regular posts. Spamming is also not allowed, and is defined as a post that has no meaning.

    7. No Topic Bumping - If a topic you created has no replies, you may not post again in it. If you made the thread because you need help with something, you may post again as long as you include additional information about your problem (the fact that you really really want it fixed does not count as additional information). You must post this in the same thread, and you are not allowed to create more than one thread per topic.

    8. No Posting Personal Info - You may not post your name, or your street address on the forums. This is because this information then becomes accessible to anyone.

    Amendments of Clarification:
    1. There are no excuses for breaking the rules. It doesn't matter if you were angry at the time and weren't thinking straight. It doesn't matter if you were only kidding around. If you break a rule, it does the same damage, regardless of your reasons for breaking it, and you will be punished all the same.

    2. Staff abuse will not be tolerated. As a staff member, your job is to help the people, not harm them. You may only use your powers for the purposes that they have been given to you for. There is no limit on how much you may be punished for this severe offense as this must be stopped at all costs to protect the people. This means that if you abuse your powers, there is a good chance you will be demoted.

    3. Harassing the administration about punishments is not allowed. The admins are only trying to do their job, and many times they have to make difficult decisions. You may post your opinion in the thread that announces the punishment, so long as you do not flame anyone. If this thread gets out of hand, it will be closed, and you may not complain elsewhere on the board, or by other means including, but not limited to: private messages, instant messaging programs, email, telephone calls, and house visits. You also may not make threats against administrators (or other members for that matter).

    Warning Punishments:
    Mute (3) - Unable to Post.
    Temporary Ban (4) - People who cause more problems after being muted will be banned.
    Permanent Ban (5) - At this point a permanent ban is necessary to be rid of the problems you cause.
