[23/1/14] Rules and Etiquette!

Post by Oracle on Thu Jan 23, 2014 12:02 pm

This is a draft - more content will be added in future.



Forum rules
Posts are to be made in the relevant forum. This means not to post music in the Events section, for example! They're sorted for a reason, guys. :)Posts in the wrong section will be moved, repeat offences may attract a warning.

All members should post in a way that is respectful of other users. Abusing users in any way will not be tolerated.

It should be remembered this board is aimed at a general audience. Posting pornographic or generally offensive text, images, links, etc. in the incorrect section will not be tolerated and will lead to punishment in most cases.

We ask that you respect the copyright of other users, sites, media, etc. Claiming other works as your own is not acceptable and will be investigated and removed.

The bandwidth and storage space of the forum are to be respected. This means when possible, all images should be hosted off-site, using services such as Imgur.

Double posting is not allowed. Not only does it make the forum untidy, it clogs up the servers more and unfairly bloats post count.
The only reason it may be acceptable is when bumping a thread. This can be used when you have yet to receive an answer to a post for a few days, you want to bring attention (or update) a commissions or art thread, or similar reasons. Upon discretion, posts will be merged if it not considered a rightful bump.

Members are asked only to post in English, as this is an English speaking community.

Signatures must be reasonably non obtrusive, with only a small amount of text and imagery so that is does not take up large amounts of the page. This is up to the discretion of an administrator and may result in your signature being cleared.

Punishment
We operate on a three strike policy. Users will be given a warning for any and all major offences with a three month expiry. If three warnings are present at the same time, a temporary ban will be put in place of between 1 to 7 days.

Arguing with team members after having received a warning will lead to an immediate additional warning. Should this exceed three strikes a temporary ban will be put in place as above. If you believe you were unfairly warned, please contact a different staff member kindly and politely.

Permanent bans are an absolute last resort. This would need quite a few temporary bans to even be considered.
