A. Registering to the Forum

When registering to the forum, your nickname must be G-rated (non-offensive), nor containing any vulgarity, or you will find yourself removed immediately. Use of multiple nicknames is also prohibited.



i. Avatars (aka. "Those pictures underneath your name") and Custom Titles

Moderators will edit offensive avatars or custom titles. Common sense applies here: if you could show your boss your avatar and custom title, it is okay.



ii. Signature Rules

If your signature is longer than this, one of our moderators will trim it for you. We want to read your posts, not your signature! Furthermore, all signatures must be G-rated. We do not enforce a G-rating for any posts, but we feel that we should with signatures as they are appended to every single message posted to the forum.





B. General Posting Rules



i. Post Legibly

Posting in "l33t sp33k" (replacing letters with numbers and/or special symbols) or "LeEt CaPs" (alternating case excessively) will make you look like a retard. Do not do it. Proper sentence usage is appreciated too.



ii. No stupid topics
Do not post a bunch of bull crap like “whose gayer chetan or prav?” because I don’t think that anyone really wants to hear what you have to say… But that would be funny



iii. Illegal Subjects
Do not post any porn. Because if someone’s parents was having a nice stroll through the room and saw anything, they would get their ass kicked… well I probably would


iv. Which forum?

Make sure you are posting in the right forum. All forums are self-explanatory, so please use common sense. If we find you posting in the wrong forum, we are going to move your post to the correct one, within short warning.

v. Respect

Respect every forum member as you would a moderator. All forum posters are to be treated equally with respect. Repeatedly using vulgar language and calling somebody an idiot is not a good way of getting on a moderator’s good side. Furthermore, moderators treat everybody as equals.

vi. First post!

"First post!" messages are not funny, and are the mark of an imbecile.



C. Post Content

i. Spamming

Spam n. 1. To post irrelevant or inappropriate messages to a forum.

Spamming will ultimately get you removed from our forum. This includes continuously inviting people to your website, posting tons of threads within a very short time, or just plain out flooding. We do not allow any spam or advertisement posts in our forums.

ii. Swearing

We do not mind if you swear, just as long as you keep it to a minimum.



iii. Tolerance

Racist, sexist, homophobic insults are the quickest way to get yourself banned from the forum.



iv. Things that break line wrapping.

Try not to post long strings of letters, as our forum software does not automatically add a line break, and users of the forum are forced to use their horizontal scrollbar. In addition, we all know how annoying that is! The same thing goes with large pictures. You might want to scale them down before posting them.

v. Images

No pornographic, overly offensive, or inappropriate images are allowed. I believe I speak for a large number of our members when I say that I’d like to be able to read the forums while at School. Again, common sense applies: if you could show your parents these images, then it is okay.



vi. Flame wars

If you post a message containing a logical argument with a few scattered insults in it, we do not mind. However, if you post a message which solely contains insults directed at another forum member, your post would be deleted. People do not come to our forums to see people insult each other; they come to read arguments about consoles. Engaging in a flame war is a great way to get you banned.



viii. Private Messages

If anyone of our users sends threats or insults you via the Private Message(forum or chat), contact a moderator to deal with the situation.





D. Moderation
The following is our basic moderator guidelines and standards. These rules apply to moderators too. Any moderator who breaches these guidelines will lose their moderator privileges. There are no double standards in our forum.

i. Warnings (and successive courses of action)

Warnings are given by Mods to those who break the rules. We are aware of those who have a “record”. The most common method of action towards offenders is this:

1. When you break a rule for the first time, a moderator will contact you via Private Message or email to warn you. Whether you respond to the warning or not, we will assume that you are aware of the situation.

2. If you continue to break a rule for the second time, a moderator may warn you again for the last time. Depending on the severity of the offense, you may be banned for the second offense without warning.

3. After three offenses, you will be banned and your account deleted.


ii. Ban Requests, Post Deletion Requests.

If you find a post, which you find overly offensive, please Private Message a moderator or e-mail us and we will determine any further course of action.

iii. Temporary Bans

Temporary Bans maybe issued. If your account is temporary disabled, do NOT create another account. Bypassing a temporary ban may result in a more permanent action.

iv. "The Mods Deleted My Post!”

Chances are, we probably moved it to a different forum. Failing that, your post most likely broke one of the above guidelines. If you are still not certain why one of your posts was deleted, send a Private Message to a moderator or email us and we will discuss why.



v. Chat Moderation

If your chatting is breaking the rules (see: Post Content), it can result in temporary removal (kick/time limited ban) or complete removal (permanent IP or server ban. If you have done so much to get a reward such as a permanent IP ban, you will not get another chance.

vi. "I wanna be a mod!"

Asking to become a moderator is the fastest way of eliminating your chance of ever becoming a moderator. In nearly all situations, the only way of ever achieving this position is if we come to you.

vii. "Complaints Against Mods”

If you have a grudge against a particular mod, we suggest that you try to work out your situation via Private Message or email with him/her. Do not post your problems in any other forums. After the first warning, any other offenses shall be strictly acted upon.

vii. Harassment

Harassment of staff members via e-mail, instant messages, telephone calls, or other means of contact is a punishable offense.

Many posts have had leet speak, no one ever changed them, lots of "LEET CAPS" no one ever changed them, lots of improper sentence usage no one ever changed them either.

many senseless topics and replies posted (ie. mostly by prav)

Lots of needless spam that was never dealt with.
