Hi, read this topic before posting. :)

Rules:
  • don't post warez, porn, gore, spam, flame or other hateful things.
  • don't post just to increase your postcount (example: posting smilies only, writing very short words such as "ok, thank you, etc."). That will be considered as spam.
  • don't use cRaZy cApS or 1337 sp33ch or PERMANENT CAPS LOCK.
  • don't abuse forum features.
  • don't register more than one time.
  • don't create sockpuppets or fake accounts.
  • don't choose famous names when registering.
  • don't use vulgar language. Try to be polite.
  • don't criticise publicly what mods and admins do. Do it by PMs if you really have to.
  • don't give orders to mods and admins. This includes "X must be banned" and "Make me mod" requests.
  • don't annoy mods and admins by flooding their PM boxes. Don't do the same thing to normal users too.
  • don't say "I didn't know the rules" after having done something wrong.
  • don't say you dislike some smilies or features and want them removed. We won't delete them just because of your tastes.
  • don't post about your personal drama in real life or on the internet.
  • don't advertise this forum on the internet. You must get permission from admins before doing it.
  • don't reply to topics and posts made by spambots.
  • don't quote huge posts or large pics.
  • don't post two or more messages in a row. Use the edit button instead. Double posting is allowed only to bump old topics.
  • don't try to break the forum layout.
  • don't try to defend bad users even if they're your friends. Don't ask for mercy for them.
  • speak correct and current English only. Or, at least, try to do it.
  • use proper punctuation.
  • put videos and large pics under spoilers.
  • before starting a new topic be sure you post it into the correct section.
  • remember this is a forum, not a chatroom. Replies to your questions may not be that quick. Use an IM if you really wish fast replies.

Punishments:
  • topic lock
  • avatar/post/signature deletion
  • warning
  • postcount reset
  • expulsion from a particular forum group
  • deactivation of a certain forum feature
  • losering
  • temporary ban
  • permanent ban

All punishments are at the discretion of mods and admins based on the rules broken.

Forum hierarchy:
  1. Administrators (can do everything)
  2. Super Moderators (can ban users and edit posts)
  3. Moderators (can edit posts)
  4. Super Users (standard rank for very active users)
  5. Users (standard rank)
  6. Guests (can read some sections)
  7. Bots (can read some sections but they are not human)
  8. Losers (can see the Losers forum only)
  9. Banned Users (can do nothing)

Rules for moderators:
  • precautionary ban: you may give 24h bans to user who are breaking the rules at the moment to stop the violation. Admins will then decide to increase the ban or even unban the users.
  • before deleting topics ask an admin.
  • you may edit posts to fix small things such as grammar mistakes, links, tags. You may not change its content.
  • reports after taking action are appreciated.

Doubts? Suggestions? Post here.

If a moderator has to ask an admin to delete a thread, could it not be argued that the admin could do it anyway?

If an admin isn't online at the moment, mods must lock the bad topics and ask admins what to do. ;)

I don't get this one, it is for normal users, or it applies to mods and admins' new features?

It's for everyone. It means you all may not post too many smilies, tags or abuse the report function. :shiftyph34r:

Neither this one, how can I break forum's layout? :?

By posting very large pics or writing very long words. ;)

If it is reset, it means it will go back to 0? Even if you have over 1000 posts? Or it will be reduced by 100-200, etc?

All of them. Depends from the rules broken.

Make Lakisoft understand his mistakes and you'll become a superuser. ;)

OK, but after you explain in a detailed post what he did wrong, so I can quote that for him and make him understand. ;)
I could try as well but unfortunately for me it's late now, have to go, so I'm in a hurry. :yup:

Do it yourself...
Or, I might as well do it.
EDIT: I have compiled a list on what LakiSoft has infringed on. Now it is up to FistMarine to explain it to LakiSoft.

Some of these rules I find a little strict, but I admit I see the necessity in them. Although there's one change I think you should make. Spamming any member with PMs, not just moderators, should be the rule. Spamming anyone with PMs is annoying and frustrating to everyone. Also, I believe Super Moderators should be Global Moderators, right?

These rules will be hard to enforce. There are but 3 of you and one is inactive.

There are only three or so active members, so it shouldn't be too difficult for us to monitor the forums.
