Rules for Posting

Post by ALC on Sat Aug 24, 2013 8:02 am

RULES & GUIDELINES FOR POSTING

1. MAKE AN EFFORT TO USE CORRECT GRAMMAR AND A LOGICAL LAYOUT
People are far more likely to read your post and respond to it
Please do not use phone text-speak, you are not being charged by the character here (yet anyway ;-)). DO NOT SHOUT - People can read just fine. If you must use different colours for posting, do try and use a high contrast colour which actually renders your text legible.

Whilst English is the language of this forum, posts are permitted in other languages provided a translation (google translate is useful here) is also given.

2. BE TOLERANT OF OTHERS AND WHAT THEY SAY
Treat other forum members they way you would want them to treat you. Whilst you may not agree with what others are saying, they still have the right to say it, even if it is complete stupidity. Defend your point of view without descent into personal attacks or anger.
And keep comment within the rules.

3. REFRAIN FROM PERSONAL ATTACKS ON OTHER MEMBERS
It's just silly really, and wastes everyone's time. Moderators will take action against posts attacking others and against the authors of such posts.

4. NO MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS
Please don't. Like Santa Claus, we'll know about it! And both accounts will be nuked.

5. NO SPAMMING
People who post advertising and the like will be banned. Some off topic posts may also be deletable or moved at the discretion of the Moderators. Frequent infractions will simply result in posts being deleted and a warning being issued to the poster.

6. NO MULTIPLE POSTS
Use the EDIT function to add to posts. And when editing a post please give a reason for the edit as a curtsey to other posters.
Unnecessary multiple posts are liable to Editing by Moderators and serial multiple posting, soliloquising will simply result in posts being deleted without comment and a warning being issued to the poster.

7. NO UNNECESSARY REVIVAL OF OLD THREADS
Threads generally die for a reason. So you need to have a good one for reviving them.

8. NO UNSUITABLE IMAGES OR LINKS
Minors visit the forum. Unsuitable content will at the very least result in an immediate ban.

9.NO UNNECESSARY SWEARING
Everyone swears sometimes (except modes of course), for emphasis, out of enthusiasm, or for whatever reason. Whilst mild swearing is permissible, too much or the use of obscenities will likely result in the post being deleted by Moderators. So keep it cool.

10. DO NOT DISCUSS PIRATING GAMES
Discussion of illegal downloading or copying of games or the posting of links to same is strictly forbidden and could result in the posters being banned. Such discussions could possibly lead to the forum being shut down, which is not in anybody's interests. Homeworld: Remastered is fairly priced for the amount of content, so get out there and buy it!

11. STAY ON TOPIC
If only everyone would do so! Whilst a relaxed approach will be taken to this, this forum is primarily concerned with Homeworld and the development of the Rebirth mod.
Other things may be discussed in the Off Topic Section. Inappropriate topics will be deleted. It is not for dissemination of advertising or political or religious views, there are lots of other forums for those. Moderators will use their discretion as to what is appropriate.

12. THINK BEFORE YOU HIT THE SEND BUTTON
Is it relevant? Does it add to the discussion? And when stating facts, do try to ensure that they are in actual fact facts.

Moderators will always judge things impartially and give posters the benefit of the doubt when there is a dispute of any kind. They will usually contact a member who breaks the rules before taking action. Any post edits will be done fairly and will respect the poster's right to express their views as the post adheres to the above guidelines.
