PostSubject: Rules   Sat Feb 17, 2007 8:00 pm

To All Members, please read and make sure you follow the following rules and guidelines:

1. Do not share, trade, or distribute in any manner here, any copyright material, without the express written consent of the owner.

2)
Spam is not tolerated on this site. If you spam you will be labeled as a spammer until you improve, or until you are subsequently banned upon any more infractions. Excessive use of smilies is a form of spamming, and will be treated as such.

3)
Do not share your account or password to this site. Every individual contributing to the member areas of this site is allowed only to have ONE account.

4) In an attempt to keep this site safe and enjoyable for everyone, there are a few rules here that we'd like you all to respect and keep in mind:

a) Please do not use racist slurs, prejudiced comments, profanity, or derogatory statements.

b) Swearing is censored to the best of our efforts, but your co-operation is of utmost importance in these matters.

c) Evading the censor by adding asterisks, or purposefully misspelling words to evade the censor is considered a higher offence than swearing normally, do not do this.

d) Do not initiate arguments of a personal nature. This will only cause the triggering of other members and make this site unsafe. We will remove anyone who explicitly ignores this rule.

e) Please put a warning on all material that could upset other members. or title the thread Explicit

f) Be courteous to other users, even if you disagree with someone or believe that they are full of it. Refrain from flaming posts or comments. You may argue and debate, but do not make any comments of a personal nature. Do not use any profanity and no derogatory statements. This place is to help others, and to reach out for help... let's keep it that way.

4) Members that do not follow these rules will be issued a warning and have the offending post removed. Continual disrespect for our rules will result in that account being banned. Keep in mind that your activity on this board is monitored. If you are unsure about making a certain post, or activity on this board, please discuss it first with Hulls Raven, or a Moderator. Do not take matters into your own hands and comment on others' behaviors.

5) No unauthorized advertisement. You must contact us for permission to advertise a website

We'd like to stress :: Our community consists of players of all ages and from all walks of life, and that includes teenagers, and even some pre-teens. That said, we would like to see less swearing on our boards, including: @#%$, pissing, tuna melt, Oh Sh*t, F**k the questions, WTF, etc. Sure, these are 'acceptable' words (because they are censored) and some even said on TV, but it doesn't mean they're right.

We understand that there are times when there is indeed something that causes so much excitement or grief in you that you just have to blurt out a swear word, but this need not be so often, and certainly not all the time. We'd prefer if it is kept in to a minimum.

Promoting your site is only allowed with permission of the site owner Hulls Raven only.

Questionable Content:

Since we can't have a rule to cover everything, this is the rule to, well, cover everything. These are public boards, so act like you would if you were in a public place. These issues are left to the discretion of the individual moderators, but may include any material that is knowingly false and or defamatory, misleading, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, that otherwise violates any law, or that encourages conduct constituting a criminal offense.

Thank you for reading these rules, please continue to set an example and abide by them.

Thank You

We would like to add another rule to the above, one that is very important and must be adhered to above all others.

No member (including Admins and Mods) are allowed to create more then one account for this forum. You have one and one only. On other forums that some members are connected to have had extreme trouble with the bulk of their member base turning out to be the one person. Trouble springs from this and we do not allow our members to be more then one member.

If you are caught with more then one account you will automatically be banned and not allowed to return.

We are completely serious about this. One account and one account only.

Thank You
