Please Read the Rules Before Posting!

PostThu Mar 21, 2013 3:00 pm

The rules of this forum are meant as a guideline for acceptable behavior. When making a report to the moderation team for a violation of these rules, be sure that said rule has been clearly broken. We are happy to look into any issue, but we, as a team, aren't here to baby sit every post and poster. Use your common sense when posting and treat others with the respect you'd like to be treated with. And if you don't want to be treated with respect, treat others with it anyway. The direction the team is taking is one where mutual respect and courtesy is of importance in order to garner constructive discussion in a healthy forum environment. If we feel a member is intentionally stifling this ethos, we reserve the right to take action. The team will also have a discretion policy where we may take action on a poster should the team be in common agreement that it be in the best interest of the forums, regardless of forum rule technicalities.

Certain thing likes pornography, spreading torrents, posting copyrighted material, and hate speech are prohibited on these boards. Fringe topics such as those relating to pedophilia should also be consulted with the team prior to posting. If you have any questions about whether something you are going to post is an example of any of these things please do not hesitate to contact a moderator or administrator. If we see any of these things posted on the forums, we reserve the right to remove them without informing the poster prior. In short, use your common sense, and most of all have fun!

Below is a link to the Rules of the Forum:

Thank you for your attention, and happy posting!

Woodchuck, Hexa, re:cure, and the Mod Team

Note: Additions to the rules are still in the pipeline, including those pertaining to PM's, Signatures and Avatars.

I think we should only be able to post a portion of an article and then be required to make a summarization in our own words to get the dialogue going.

There are three sections :) EDIT: Blame Hex apparently :lol:

And we will consider making that a requirement. Wouldn't want to discourage people from posting, but if you don't have an opinion on something, why are you posting it int he first place?

EDIT 2: Also, I've stickied this topic for ease of finding it when one has a suggestion for the forum.

Ok, I was able to see all the rules now. It looks like 3C touches on that a bit anyway. I just thought that would help the forum not run into any problems with copyrights and what not.

^ I made an addition B.Mo. Section '3D' should cover it.

Moved posts to appropriate thread. Loki has stickied the forum suggestions thread in Misc.

Just to clarify... the rules are only meant to serve as a general guideline, correct?


The team will also have a discretion policy where we may take action on a poster

should the team be in common agreement that it be in the best interest of the forums,

regardless of forum rule technicalities.


In other words... following the rules will not be the basis for continued membership-

^ In a sense yes. They won't be as 'rigid' as they may have been on the previous boards. It is focus on less 'objectivity' (which is usually a subjective affair) this time around. In the case where the team feel a member may continually be 'skirting' forum rules whilst causing damage to the forum environment it will be within the Mod Teams power to take action. This of course will be a last resort.

We understand this may cause some concern, however it will only be actioned upon if agreed upon by the whole team, and if it is the general motion of the members (We will be instituting 'representatives'/'forum helpers' to assist with this). The final decision will be with the Administrators in such a case.

Edit: Also see Loki's post.

Decided to unlock this since people have questions. Will lock again maybe in a week or so and further questions can be sent to the admins.

@Cheers,

The rules are a guidleine of sorts, as any set of rules are. If they are repeatedly disregarded then it becomes an issue.

As your your second part, following the rules is important and we appreciate it, but what we mostly want is respect and intellectual and civil exchanges between members. If someone finds a way to constantly disrupt that but claims they aren't breaking rules, we reserve the right to remove them from the forum regardless. But that is at the discretion of the admins, and we won't take such an action lightly.

Furthermore, what he said ^
