The rules below apply to this board.
I. No Flaming. IF you are caught flaming, aka name calling, swearing at the person etc then you will recieve a warn. If you have been flamed, do not reply back with flames yourself (you can reply with something that is not a flame, but the best thing to do is let the admins delete the flames). If you do flame the person back just as badly, you might get a warn point as well.
II. If your topic gets deleted for being spam, then the admins have determined it as spam. If you feel your topic was really not spam, please PM an admin to talk about it, and please be civil. The admin may have mistaken your thread for spam. This board has strict no spam rules. We want to keep the site clean for good discussion.
Definition of SPAM:
1. Advertisements of any kind, those should actually be in "Advertisement" forum or your sig.
2. Anything that even remotely doesn't have a meaning to the thread/or a thread that has no meaning. E.g. a topic about "Bunchies Tacos" where the post says nothing but "MMMMMM bunchies tacos are t3h le333333333333ttttt lets EAT!" would be spam. However, a thread titled "Bunchies Tacos" where a real recipe on how create home-made Bunchies Tacos for real wouldn't be spam in most cases.
3. These rules may be ammended to at any time, but offenses made before a rule is made are not counted.
4. Anything that doesn't contribute to the topic. Offtopic posts, posting the same message over and over into other threads where it doesn't fit, posting a bunch of smilies, posting just a character or two of text, etc.
III. No Flooding. Flooding is creating mass amounts of posts ( 10+ ) in a matter of minutes, or continuously spamming the same message over and over again. Warns will be issued if you do so.
IV. No advertising, outside the ad forums.
V. No swearing. If you do swear, please censor it and keep it to a MINIMUM. You shouldn't be swearing in every post.
VI. No porngraphy, and no hentai. It doesnt matter how you link to it, just dont.
VII. No offensive material.
VII. Common courtesy is all that we ask. This is a volunteer operation. The administrators and moderators are giving of their time to make this a better board. They deserve our thanks and appreciation, and to be treated civilly. It is possible that one of the staff may make a decision that you disagree with. Alas, it is an imperfect world in which we live. If you feel an error was made, you can certainly email your opinion or question to an administrator or moderator, as long as you do it in a non-confrontational manner.
You may feel that your feelings were hurt, or that a decision was unfair. Keep in mind that we have to make decisions based upon the needs of the majority of our visitors, and that sometimes requires us to act in ways that may appear unfair to a particular individual. An individual may have goals or attitudes that will disrupt and destroy the benefits being received by others. That individual may even think that he is doing the right thing. And when he is banned, he may feel that the decision was not "fair." Very few decisions are fair from every perspective. The criminal thinks it is unfair that he has to go to jail at all, while many in society may think the sentence is not for a sufficiently long period of time.
VIII. We reserve the right to suspend or delete a user, or move/delete/edit a post, for any reason we feel necessary at any time.
IX. No Proxies allowed. Because we have had such a hard time with people abusing the use of proxies, we no longer will tolerate the use of them. We apologize for any inconveniences. Any member caught using a proxy on the forums will be banned.
X. Alternate accounts are against the rules. If you have to make an alternate account for a reason, such as testing or whatnot, let me know before you do. Making alternate accounts to ban evade, get more store points, cheat in polls, etc is NOT allowed so don't even ask me. Trying to come back with alt accounts from a suspension or anything else = instant ban.
Dont let the rules intimidate you to post. you'll see they're very basic rules of forums that are easy to follow. just have fun and use common sense for the most part.
