Universal Rules

PostTue Feb 04, 2014 10:17 pm

There has been some controversy stirring about the way things are currently run. I offered to write some new rules & guidelines, so here they are. I will update as soon as the rules change.
*NOTE* These rules are not 100% official, but they're exactly what a veteran forum member would expect out of you. I, and many other members, would highly suggest following these rules.

Double-Posting
Double posting is the act of posting twice in a row in a short space of time. In the top right corner of a post, there is an edit button. Please use that, then bump the topic (either by posting "bump" or using a forum tool). Double-posting is highly frowned-upon here. Bumping is not considered to be double-posting.

Grave-Digging
Grave-digging is when you post on an old topic. If you happen to grave-dig, there is a delete button next to the edit button (the X). There are certain places where grave-digging is worse than others, such as JJx>Report Bugs versus General Talk>Chit-Chat. For more information, see the rules for all subforums. Grave-digging is also highly frowned-upon in most situations.

General Rules
Raging, flaming, trolling, insulting others, spamming (replies, topics, and PMs), posting giant pictures without a spoiler, quoting a giant post, using a large signature, SMS abbreviations, and writing in strange and hard-to-read methods (AlTeRnAtInG cApS, ALL CAPS, no caps, Capitalizing Every Word) are also not accepted here, with the former things being more offensive than the latter. Please refrain from practicing any of these actions. And, for PETE's sake, please SEARCH YOUR IDEA BEFORE POSTING A NEW TOPIC ON IT.
Also, italics mean sarcasm. Or do they...

Forum Format
We use BBCode here at the forums, which consists of a start tag and an end tag, like so:
Code: Select all
[url][/url]

Type the text that you want displayed with that format in between the start and end tags. Like what I said above, italics mean sarcasm. The :asd: emote is usually paired along with that, to indicate that you are joking or laughing. You will use this emote a lot, so memorizing the tag is not a bad idea. :asd:
See? I just used it there.

Warnings
Warnings are a system to encourage users to follow the forum rules. Currently, they are given out when any given user breaks the subforum-they're-posting-in's rules. When you have 3 warnings, you may be banned for a set period of time. If you believe a warning you were given was in vain, you can contact the moderator that gave you the warning for clarification.

Could you add something that says you shouldn't quote the OP?

I think that the Original post contains all the rules, or most of them.

Basically, not abreviations, don't talk in that annoying text layout like "O ye I thunk dat is gud ide" Limit the acronyms to "Lol" "omg" "wtf".. basically all the simple ones everyone uses, not everyone like to see that.

No swearing, we have kids on the forum, and not everyone likes it as well.
No racism, No trolling (Well, light trolling where nobody actually gets hurt is kinda *alright*)
Try not to gravedig, Have fun (If you don't have fun, I'll perma ban you!)
Overall, just be repsectful to other members, if you breach a rule, someone will tell you.
