Gln Posted September 14, 2020 Share Posted September 14, 2020 1. Flames/trolling/hostility/etc: Do not insult (or instigate the insulting of) other Members/Moderators/Admins/other forum users. We don't mind active discussion, but there are lines that you do not cross. 2. Moderation decisions: Do not discuss moderation decisions openly on the Forums. Any thread or post created for this purpose will be removed without notice. If you wish to discuss an action, or feel that the action taken was inappropriate/severe, please send a PM to one of the HR Officers or Fleet Commanders. The actions of the Moderation team are not final, but do remember that they are there to help keep the peace and do this service without payment. 3. Spam: Do not post spam (pointless messages) to increase your post count. This includes copy/pasting your response to a similar question in another thread. If you feel that the information you are conveying is appropriate to the discussion, please quote yourself (You can copy/paste that) and include a link to the other thread in the post. This ensures healthy discussions within multiple threads, and may facilitate users noticing/reading an interesting thread they have not yet read. Likewise, content dumps from other sources of information should be included in a spoiler, with a link to the content in the OP as to reduce both scrolling, but to ensure the original source gets exposure. 4. Off topic: Do not stray from the topic stated within the body of the thread's creator. Any content within a post that deviates too far from the topic may be removed, and violating posts could become hidden. 5. NSFW Titles: Do not include NSFW content in your thread title. Seeing as not all of us are able to guarantee that our kids or colleagues aren't looking over our shoulders, please refrain from including NSFW content within a topic title (Offensive language etc.). 6. Bumping: Do not repeatedly bump the same thread. Allow threads and topics conversation to run their natural course. If a thread is no longer active, you may want to create a new thread on that topic instead. Likewise, if someone posts a new thread and there is an existing one, be friendly in informing them of its existence with appropriate links to the relevant discussion(s). 7. Creating Multiple Threads on the Same Topic: Do not create multiple forum threads on the same topic. If there is already and active thread on the relevant topic then use it to respond. Each forum is designed to cater to very specific discussions. Please only post a thread in the forum it is most relevant to and avoid spamming the forums with multiple instances of the same thread. 10. Doxxing: Do not publish personal information of another member (against their will) or link to topics where such content can be found. Any violation of this rule can and will most likely result in an immediate ban. 11. Advertisements: This is not allowed in any form or in any area unless discussed with a site admin. Signatures or posts found with the code embedded will be warned once and then removed. 12. Formatting: For the sake of maintaining the clarity of our forums, when posting content that is copied from another outlet or source, we ask, that it be formatted in a presentable and professional manner. This means when you create a post, you must remove the old formatting from the previous source it has been copied from and re-present it when pasted here. Additionally, when creating a post, we ask that it have more content than just a link. For example, you could provide your thoughts on the linked information or a brief summary of whats found in the link. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
