Forum Rules

Post by jd896 on Sat Jul 10, 2010 8:13 am

1. Spam is not tolerated. Spam is Stupid Pointless Annoying Messages. We don't want them. (besides in the randomness thread!) 25% Warning

2. Trolling and flaming are strictly forbidden. This includes trolling and flaming from our staff as well. If you do encounter any trolls, ignore them, don't talk back to them - this could get you into trouble as well. If you just ignore them, they'll get bored and leave. Report them to a moderator or administrator and we'll take suitable action depending on the situation. 25% Warning

3. Forum advertising is forbidden. This means advertising other sites, forums, and what not. Generally, advertising is forbidden - putting your site in your signature or the website profile field is fine though. You may also advertise in the Advertise Your Site section, but follow the guidelines. 25% Warning

4. Flaming and backstabbing other sites and forums is a big NO. If you do it, you will get and warning and a ban if you do it again. Flaming and backstabbing other sites and forums is a serious offense and will NOT be tolerated. This also includes telling others to NOT join someone's site. 50% Warning

5. No alternate aliases. Only one account per person, and yes, we can check IPs. If you do make another account and pretend to be someone else, especially if that person is a member from another site that you wish to spite or similar, both your accounts will be banned, and if you used another person's alias, that person will be told about it. 100% Warning

6. Moderator's and Administrator's words are final. If you wish to argue, at least do in a civilized way either by PM or the chatbox - don't post in the forums and cause drama. Its okay to disagree to mods but do not criticize their decisions. 15% Warning- arguing with mods.

7. No drama. It's annoying, and often classified as attention seeking depending on the situation. This will get you banned, especially if it's in the chatbox. 50% Warning

8. Don't ask to be a moderator/administrator. This will only lessen your chances. 10% Warning

9. Occasional swearing is fine if it is used appropriately, but constant swearing used inappropriately and to insult will get you a warning or ban. 25% Warning- Must be CONSTANT

10. No posting any kind of porn. This will result in a permanent ban. 100% Warning

11. Respect other members. Treat people like you want to be treated. Be friendly to others, and they will be friendly back to you.

12. Do not link to or post illegal material. This may result in a ban and your post will most definitely be deleted. 100% Warning

13. Don't try to harass users via PM or posts, this will get you banned. 100% Warning

14. Use common sense on this forum don't post senseless posts.. (This goes also with rule #1)

15. Any threats towards members or the website, whether it was a joke or not, will be an immediate and permanent ban. That is nothing to joke about and is against the law, whether it's hacking or killing. 100% Warning

16) Try to avoid text speak. Saying stuff like "u" and "IKR" can be hard for people to understand. Try to avoid as much as possible. You can put in ( ) what it means though.

17) One word posts are considered spam. One worded posts will be deleted. Continuously doing this will give you a suspension. 10% Warning

18) Do NOT ask for gym badges. It will get you NOTHING and add up your warning bar. You may ONLY ask if the Gym Leader says, "Free Gym Badges to those who don't have wi-fi", then you may ask. In all other cases, it's a NO. 35% Warning

19) Gym Leaders Only- Do NOT give out free badges unless you don't have wi-fi or don't have shoddy. 25% Warning or suspension from Gym Leader spot

20) Please keep the site appropriate for those under 13. 50% Warning

21) Don't MiniMod. Use the report button instead. 30% Warning

22) No Double posting, use the edit button instead. 25% Warning.

23) In the "Show Off" forum, stealing of work is NOT allowed. 30% Warning

I know it may seem like alot of rules, but they are easy to follow Smile

If you have any questions, feel free to contact one of the mods or admins! Very Happy

Thanks. I thought it'd be easier for mods to refer to this for the warning instead of guesswork.

I feel that is the point of the rules, but let infern be the judge of that.

Also, thank you infern for the compliment!
