Annoucements Rules of the Forum

Post by Rislar on Tue Dec 15, 2009 1:44 am

These are the official rules covering all things you do, say or post on this website including forum posts, private messages, calendar events, avatar images, signatures and profile data. This is the definitive list, if in doubt, check here.


1., its Administrators, Moderators and authorized agents, may remove, edit or move any content and/or delete, suspend or permanently bar any account at any time for any reason (or none at all) without notice or explanation.

2. You may not post any content or post links to any content which:
a) is hateful or incites hate against any person or group;
b) threatens harm toward any person, property or group;
c) depicts acts of violence, sexual exploitation or animal cruelty;
d) is a flagrant personal attack;
e) depicts or suggests sexual acts;
f) is knowingly misleading or misrepresentative (an intentional lie);
g) is commercial in nature and in which you stand to profit either directly or indirectly; (1)
h) depicts full or partial nudity or is sexually suggestive and not safe for work (NSFW). (2)

3. You may not post any ad to sell any product or service, new or used (3).

4. You may not post content for which you don't own the copyright without the approval of the person who does.

5. You may not post content which is political in nature or express political ideology or beliefs. This is not the place to post your own Mein Kampf. This includes religious theology and beliefs. (4)

(1) If you wish to post commercial content you must be a sponsor.
(2) Members may post in the member-only "hotties" forum with relaxed standard part but still no nudity.
(3) Members may post non-commercial for-sale ads in specific Marketplace forums. Sales of stolen goods will be reported to the police.
(4) Members may post political and religious topics in the members-only "War Room" forum.

Ok, those are the hard rules. There are some softer ones too which might get you slapped if you don't follow them:

A) Be respectful of others. Please take a few minutes to think about how your message might sound before hitting the submit button;

B) Write in complete sentences with punctuation and reasonably good spelling. Gibberish will likely be removed. If you have trouble with English, please do your best, or post in your native language;

C) Make your topic titles informative. People aren't going to read it if they don't know what it is. It also helps the search engines find your topic;

D) Don't post blind links. Nobody is going to or should follow a blind link to somewhere. At least offer some summary of what lies beyond. Blind links are phishing and will be removed. A blind link is a post with no real content other than a hyperlink.

E) Your posts will probably stay around for years. Please think about how a search engine might find and index them. That means please use good full keywords (rather than abbreviations) which can be properly indexed.

F) Please respect and follow the direction of the moderators. They are unpaid volunteers and don't need attitude.

Thank you and enjoy the community.

This post will be updated from time to time but will remain as the single source.
