PostSubject: Rules & Guidelines   Sat Sep 08, 2012 2:06 am

Code:
Well i feel like helping you post the rules. so yeah. :p, please freely edit this if you want to change it.


The Shadowz Staff expect you to follow these rules when posting on all aspects of the site, which includes forums, IRC, hubs, blogs, anything officially Shadowz related.


Contents

1. Respect your fellow members.
a. Spamming
b. Insulting or flaming other members
c. Inappropriate language
d. Religious/Racial/Sexual discrimination
e. Serious/controversial discussion
f. Pornographic Material/Warez/Advertising
g. Fraudulent or deceptive conduct
h. Sharing personal information
i. "Trolls"
2. Posting Guidelines
3. Forum Accounts and Name Changes
4. Miscellaneous rules


1. Respect your fellow members.

The most important thing about being part of a community is to respect the members, the staff, and ultimately yourself. What you give is what you get. Treat others right, and you will be treated the same.

Being a respectful Shadowz member means to not display any inappropriate behavior. If the staff find that you're violating these expectations, you will be given a warning on the first offense, and an infraction from the next offense onwards.

Inappropriate behaviour includes the following:

a. Spamming

You've no doubt heard the word "spam" before. They are Stupid Pointless Annoying Messages. When posting on the forums, make sure your posts are worthy of discussion, interesting, easy to understand and relative to the forum's description.

Don't make posts which consist of one or two words, or "jibberish" (anything that is not an actual word or has no meaning, such as "jehfgjehfgsa"). Also, keep your posts relevant to the thread, and don't try to "de-rail," "crash" or "mini-mod" a discussion. Posts containing nothing but an image with the purpose of trolling or any other types of silly behavior may also be disallowed depending on usage and intent.

b. Insulting or flaming other members

This is extremely important. Don't make comments intended to offend/insult other members, or start arguments. Any threads/social groups/posts/hubs with signs of hostility or arguments arousing will be closed, and the members in question will be warned/infracted as necessary.

This also applies to staff members. Don't create threads or make a public displays aimed at any moderators, admins or other staff members; they will be closed or deleted immediately. Any issues the staff has with you will be brought up privately, we ask that you have the maturity to do the same.


c. Inappropriate language

Swearing/cussing is not permitted on this site under any circumstance. There are children and teenagers of all ages here, and we are a family-friendly site. Anyone swearing profusely or making attempts to evade the swear filter will be infracted immediately. This also includes words that hit the swear filter. Do note that censoring yourself also counts as swear evading, as censoring yourself implies that you are using a swear that would normally be censored by the swear filter. Severe cases of offensive language may issue an immediate ban.

On the topic of language, on shadowztours.forumonline.biz keep to discussion to English only please. This is so our moderators always know what is being said. you will be given a heads up about the rule for using other languages, but could be given an official warning if it persists.


d. Religious/Racial/Sexual discrimination

Discrimination of a religious, racial or sexual manner is not tolerated at all.


e. Serious/controversial discussion

Shadowz is a family-friendly community. We don't encourage discussion with highly political or religious content. Off-topic discussion is allowed, but anything that may create controversy or ensue flaming will be closed by the moderators. This includes sexual/drug references or implications of any nature within posts, threads, hubs, user titles, and everything in between.


f. Pornographic Material/Warez/Advertising

We don't allow any posts containing links, images, or references to porn, including hentai. No matter how "mild" a member may think it is, if it has sexual content or implications it will be removed or edited. The user in question may receive a warning or infraction, and in extreme cases an immediate ban.

Any members posting simply to sell or advertise materials is not allowed. Advertising your website must be kept to one thread in the "Visit My Website" forum, your signature or your profile. Don't harass members via private message or pager to join your website.

Additionally, no links may be posted that lead to scripted windows that cannot be closed without pressing ctrl-alt-del. Pranks like this can cause members to lose unsaved documents, and are taken very seriously by the Shadowz staff.


g. Fraudulent or deceptive conduct

When posting articles, news, essays, art, or any original work; if it was not created by you, make sure you either cite the source or gain the owner's permission to use their work. Plagiarism is not tolerated, and if you refuse to give credit where it is due after being advised and warned, you will receive an infraction.


h. Sharing personal information

Information such as messenger handles, personal websites, age and gender are allowed to be shared, but please refrain from creating threads about it. If a moderator suspects that you're asking members for this information for malicious or harassive purposes, your posts/threads may be removed and you may be warned.

Sharing of real names or addresses are not allowed for the safety of our members.


i. "Trolls"

An "Internet troll" or "Forum Troll" or "Message Board Troll" is a person who posts outrageous message to bait people to answer. Forum Troll delights in sowing discord on the forums. A troll is someone who inspires flaming rhetoric, someone who is purposely provoking and pulling people into flaming discussion. Flaming discussions usually end with name calling and a flame war.

A classic troll is trying to make us believe that he is a genuine skeptic with no hidden agenda. He is divisive and argumentative with need-to-be-right attitude, "searching for the truth", flaming discussion, and sometimes insulting people or provoking people to insult him. Troll are usually experts in baiting others in order to get an over the top response, as well as reusing the same words of its opponents and in turning it against them.

The bottom line is this. Trolls are not welcome here. You know if you are a troll or not, you will receive an infraction for this type of behavior. You can try and troll and con your way out of punishments, but it's not going to be tolerated. You have been warned. If you are not here to be a constructive member of the community, then you will not be allowed on this website.


Note: Moderators, Chat Staff and Administrators reserve the right to ban a member at any time with or without warning/infracting if the member's behaviour is extremely offensive and/or a general threat to the community.

For more information on infractions, check out this FAQ: User Infractions

2. Posting Guidelines

a. Please don't multiple-post (post right after your last post) unless you run out of room in your previous post.

b. Don't create multiple threads about the same topic. Stick to the last thread you created. When creating a thread, check that a thread hasn't been created about the same subject already.

c. Only bump threads if you have something relevant to add to the topic. You may bump your own threads if you have updated your first posts with more information, but don't bump simply to get attention. You may bump others threads if your post is kept relevant to the thread, unless it answer's a question that has already been answered. You may not bump threads simply for the sake of bumping.

d. When posting images, please limit yourself to 5 images per post if they are large. We encourage this out of courtesy for users having to scroll through threads with masses of images. Please also make sure that your images are not so large that they stretch the browser window horizontally, making members have to use a scroll bar.

e. If you see any posts which you think may be offensive or violating the rules, click the report button to send a message describing the offense to the staff.

4. Forum Accounts and Name Changes

One account is permitted per person. If you're caught having other accounts for your own personal use, the other accounts will be banned or deleted permanently, and your main account will be banned for two weeks. Any attempts to evade this two week ban, or any further accounts being created after the ban has expired, will lead to an IP ban.

The staff are completely ruthless here when handling multiple account users or ban evaders. If you use any other means to access the site after your IP has been banned, we will not hesitate to report you to your ISP.

Additionally, members are responsible for their own accounts. Anything posted on your account is your responsibility. If an account gets hacked and does enough to get banned, the original owner of the account will not be able to argue against the ban, even if it really isn't their fault. So, please, keep your password to yourself.

The Admins will not issue you a name change unless the following has occurred:

1. You have chosen an offensive or inappropriate name
2. You have chosen a name that was completely thoughtless and impractical to use, such as a jumble of letters and numbers with absolutely no meaning, making it hard for other members to refer to you, or
3. You have accidentally entered your email address as your username

Otherwise, you will have to stick to what you've got, no exceptions. Any requests trying to seek favouritism for a possible name change will be ignored. Name change week is the only time you can change your name

5. Miscellaneous rules

I don't believe this has been stressed enough, because it seems that every week, someone PMs me asking if they can become an administrator, moderator or some other staff position. I'm just going to make one point clear to those who have asked and those who are thinking of asking: If you ask to be on staff, you're destroying your chances of ever getting the job.

You don't get to choose to be on staff, its up to the whole staff as a group. If we all agree that a certain member can be chosen to moderate or write reviews etc, then we will let you know. Before you even think about asking, you need to consider the following:

1. You have good spelling and grammar.
2. You treat other members kindly.
3. You have a good post record. (no spamming/flaming)
4. You act maturely on the forum.
5. You have been an active member for a long time.
