Forum Rules & Posting Guidelines

Post by princevladlin on Mon Jul 29, 2013 2:00 pm

The rules of this forum are pretty simple and easy to follow. As long as you're not intentionally trying to cause trouble, you should be fine.

Notice: I am not the only one responsible for creating these rules, however, they are open to change. If you have any suggestions or think a rule is unfair, please pm me or another administrator or moderator.

Rules:
1. Do not harass or insult other members.
2. Do not discriminate against anyone based on gender, ethnicity, race, religion, irreligion, personal belief, sexuality, age, or for any other reason.
3. Do not spam or make nonsensical posts unless otherwise specified, implicitly or explicitly, by the original poster of a thread [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. Advertising any content such as a product or website or explicitly asking for likes or views is not allowed. Any links posted should be relevant. You may have icons linking to your facebook, twitter, etc. pages or discreet links in your signature. Please do not make your signature obnoxiously long.
Please do not double post unnecessarily. If you want to say something more or reply to multiple people, edit your post. Double posting is appropriate in some cases (for totally unrelated posts of considerable length for example). Offtopic or nonsensical posts are fine in the misc thread but do not post totally irrelevant, useless, or redundant things (i.e. one word posts such as "lol") Triple+ posting is not allowed (unless for levels). Also refrain from making topics about the same thing or making a lot of topics. Things like this will be considered spam. Furthermore, it is up to the moderators' discretion as to what constitutes spam. For example, "collaborative spamming" efforts will not do unpunished simply because none of the participants are triple posting. I know that there are a lot of spam rules.. but it is because we have had a lot of spamming.
4. Avoid excessive profanity.
5. Do not discuss or post links to adult content.
6. Impersonating another player with a fake account will result in a permanent ban of that account and a temporary or permanent ban of the impersonator depending on the circumstances.

Violation of any of these rules may result in the locking of the topic, a warning, or action being taken by the moderation team. If you see a post or PM that breaks these rules, please report the incident to a member of the moderation team.

Level posting guidelines:

  • A member may only have one thread for codes unless the moderation team has given him or her special permission to have multiple threads.
  • As the max character limit for a post is [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], multiple posts within a thread are now allowed. We ask that you do not comment in other people's threads until we work out the best way to keep the op's posts all together. The current plan is that each member should reserve sufficient space (make more posts after the first in the thread saying "reserved") for future levels. For now, the moderation team will delete any comments separating your reserved posts, however, we will not do this after a certain point. In the future, if you run out of space, you will have to link to a post later in your thread and set up reserved space there.
  • Also note that we might add a page for formatting multiple level codes simultaneously or adding a button and using custom bbcode. If you have any recommendations for custom bbcode, contact me.

Some general guidelines:

  • Try to post in the appropriate forum section. If there is not a section relating to the topic you wish to post on, contact a member of the moderation team, and we will discuss the possibility of creating a new forum or category.
  • If you have any questions, please check the stickied topics in the relevant forum and search for an answer before asking.

Thank you.
