Rules for the Crew

on Mon Apr 23, 2018 10:16 pm
These apply to posts and reputation comments. Private messages should simply be blocked except for exceptional circumstances (real-life threats, mainly).

English Only
As with all other aspects of the game, this forum's language is English only. Please limit other languages to well known (or translated) short quotes or phrases and use only when appropriate in the situation.

Manners
Please treat each other with respect and remain polite. Do not forget that there are people of different ages and with different gaming ‘know-how’. Therefore, please stay patient if questions arise that you may consider "stupid" or "childish".

Personal insults are not allowed anywhere in this forum or in any ‘other’ private format. Any Real Life (RL) related insults will be strictly punished.

Users are not allowed to impersonate moderators. Trying to act as one is forbidden and will lead to a warning. Please do not feed the trolls and do not post in threads that are likely to be deleted. Posts like "In before lock" are forbidden.

Players are also forbidden to provoke the moderators and vice-versa. Posts made for the purpose of creating a personal conflict between users and staff will be deleted and their author will be punished severely.

Players who deliberately act against the building of a community will be denied access to these forums.

Posting
Before you post, please make sure that you know what you are posting is within the forum rules. If you are not sure, contact a moderator.

Posting Protocol
-Please try to avoid double posting! You have access to both the 'edit'.
-Please reread your posts before submitting to avoid mistakes. Your text might be read by hundreds of players so make sure it is understandable.
-Be economical with quotations! Quote only the relevant parts so that posts won't get unnecessarily long, and people know which part you are referring to.
-To avoid repetition of arguments especially in long discussions you should always read the whole topic before posting.
-Please choose appropriate titles when creating a topic. Please avoid incomplete or attention seeking names as they are deemed unfavourable. Generalistic titles such as "question", "help", "lol" should also be avoided.

Offtopic Posting
Please post answers/comments that are relevant and relate/refer to the thread topic. If you cannot post a sensible answer it is better to avoid saying anything. This is particularly true for one-word-posts like "lol" or "rofl".

Posting Pictures
It is allowed to post pictures without any comment as long as they obviously belong to the topic of the thread.

Post in the right forum
Please take a moment before posting a new topic and make sure you are posting in the correct forum so the administrators don't have to move it later. Please be aware that some sub-forums have additional rules. Please read them before posting.

Avoid repeating topics
Before you post a new topic please make sure that there has not already been a similar topic.

Grammar/spelling flames
It is not allowed to rebuke another user concerning his grammar/spelling. If the grammar/spelling of a user is that bad, that the content gets lost, you can use tell the admin or the mod will then deal with it.

Extreme content
Anything deemed politically or religiously extreme, pornographic, illegal, or unsavory in any way is prohibited in this forum whether posted or referenced. Racist or ethnic bashing comments are forbidden even if used in jest. Mentioning drugs is allowed, but comments or pictures that play down the use of illegal drugs or promote the use of said substances are strictly forbidden (this includes pictures of someone smoking a joint or similar unless there's an appropriate context, which for example an avatar or a signature lacks). Please note that starring out characters like "F*ck" does not make it any less a swear word. It is still perfectly understandable and still intentionally offensive, and thus is forbidden in all forms. This is Similarly the case for Acronyms such as GTFO or STFU. The meanings are known, and they are warnable or infractable offences.
These is because the forum rules of this site might not allow these

Real Life/Private Information
Please do not post information regarding the Private lives of other users on the forum without their express permission, as it is a gross abuse of privacy. Note that this includes RL pictures, school/college information etc.

Copyright
Do not use copyrighted materials of any kind in your posts.


Links
Users are responsible for ensuring that the pages they link do not contain material that violates the forum rules. An exception to this are songs or other video media (this primarily concerns youtube) that contains inappropriate language: linking such videos will be allowed as long as an appropriate warning about explicit language is posted by the user, alongside the link. Do however note that for example pornographic or racist videos will still render heavy punishment.

Moderation

If you wish to create a topic regarding moderation, please contact the relevant Mod first.

The mods have a very tough job: it can be hard to keep the balance between a clean forum and a fun forum on a daily basis, and they also receive a lot of negative comments and abuse regularly. We would ask that you remain patient with all moderators and that you would be helpful and polite when talking to them; this will make their job that much easier, and in turn make the forum a more pleasant place.


Punishments
Breaching of the assigned rules will lead to an initial warning.

The moderators (mods) have the right to edit or delete posts and close topics. Please follow their instructions. Discussions about their behaviour are to be held by the management team
Every complaint or criticism regarding moderation should be voiced by PM to another Moderator in minor cases.

Arguing against the Moderation team that violates these rules will be punished and topics that seek to create or worsen existing problems will be deleted.


If you notice that your post or topic was deleted, it has been removed for a good reason. Please do not rewrite it. If need be, PM the moderator in question about why it was removed.


Other

Use of private messages
Conversations, discussions and arguments between two people should be done in private. Please use the private message system in this forum or other applications (e.g. skype, whatsapp,kik..)

Advertisement
Topics and/or posts that are created solely for the purpose of advertising other websites without connection to "the crew" are forbidden.

Discussions relating to other games are allowed.


We regret that we cannot outline every single action that is legal or illegal on the forums in this set of Rules, but we hope that you as the users of this forum can understand that due to the fact that there are an endless number of situations which might arise, in order to keep these rules as concise and understandable as possible we have left out variations and specific sub-cases of some of the above rules in attempt to keep the length of the Rules down.

As a result, we ask that all users view these Rules with common sense in mind, and understand that if something is not specifically mentioned here, it does not necessarily make it within the rules to post in such a manner. For example: it does not say explicitly in these rules that spamming is not allowed, but it is common sense to assume that if offtopic posting is generally not allowed, that spamming would also be prohibited. Indeed, as a form of excessive offtopic and mindless posting, it would be dealt with more harshly than simple OT. Similarly, it does not necessarily state that quoting an inappropriate post is against the rules, but we are required to take action against all inappropriate posts, and if someone posts say, porn, and another user quotes it, that second user is in essence reposting the prohibited content. However, like the first example, due to the fact that it was not originally posted by that user, the punishment given may of course differ in severity depending on the situation itself.

We would stress at this point that if you are ever unsure of whether something is allowed or prohibited by the Rules of this forum, that simply PMing Moderator or the forum Admin, will allow us to address your question and supply you with the appropriate answer. We have attempted to make the rules as clear as possible, but there is always room for improvement. If you have any suggestions about how they could be improved or clarified, we would be glad to hear your suggestions.
