    Forum Rules

    Post by Hyde on Tue Jan 15, 2013 8:56 am

    --WarFare Online Rules--


    Posting on WFO forums
    When posting on Warfare, you are expected to follow the rules and respect the users around you. The following are the rules you must follow while posting. If you are caught breaking a rule, you will be warned with a reason. You can learn more about the warn system below.

    -Verbal Warnings:
    A verbal warning is a message from a staff member in response to a forum infraction. More than likely, it will be posted as a response to the violation. Once a verbal message as been posted, members are not permitted to respond.
    -If a member (other than the guilty party) responds to a verbal warning, they will receive a 10% warning (even if you are agreeing with the action).
    -If a staff member responds (other than to issue a warning or enforce the rules), they will receive a 10% warning.
    -If the guilty member responds to a verbal warning in the topic, it will be considered flaming. If you wish to make an apology, do it through PM/IM.
    -If a verbally warned member - or any other member - has any questions, they are to be directed to the staff member via PM.

    **Additionally, if a member behaves, every three weeks, 10% will be knocked of their metre. If your 10% decrease is not done immediately, kindly contact a moderator and they will take care of it for you, provided you fulfill the requirements.


    Spelling and Grammar
    We ask that out of respect for the other members, you try your best to use proper spelling and grammar. Remember, this is not a chat room.

    Other Post Guidelines
    Colours and other text effects are meant to make points, and are not to be used throughout an entire post.
    When creating a topic, title it properly. It must be relevant to what the thread contains.

    Stretching a Thread
    Please do not stretch the boards, either horizontally, or vertically (ie: making a long blank post, posting over-sized pictures, etc.). This makes it very hard to read, and if you do it repeatedly, you will be warned.

    Posting Images
    Posting of images that contain violent, offensive and/or sexual content/images, is prohibited. Also, when posting an image that is larger then 600px in width or height please link to it instead or wrap it in a spoiler. If the purpose of a thread is displaying images (ie. an art thread, etc.) please post appropriate warnings in the first post that there will be larger images.

    Spamming
    Spamming (otherwise known as "Stupid Pointless Annoying Messages"), is the act of making posts that contain pointless and usually irrelevant content, or posting the same message or topic over and over again, and is not allowed anywhere. Continuous spamming will result you to a high amount of warn.

    Post In The Correct Forum
    When creating a topic be sure to post it in the right section of the forum. Remember, the forum descriptions/titles are there to help you figure out where to post your topic.

    Necroposting
    Necroposting on WFO forums is posting in a dead topic (1 month older) with a message that contains no relevance and/or adds nothing to the current topic. If a message contains relevance, it is not necroposting.

    Double Posting
    Double posting means making two posts in a row, in the same topic, without anyone else posting in between. This is not allowed. You may bump your own post after 2 days (48 hours) have passed. If 48 hours have not passed, then use the EDIT button to update it. DO NOT make posts like "legal bump", or "anyone here?". Non-helpful posts like this will be removed. Instead, provide more information about your thread. This makes it easier for people to reply.

    Flaming and Trolling
    Flaming is the act of sending, displaying or posting messages that are deliberately hostile and insulting. Trolling is posting inflammatory, rude, repetitive, offensive, off-topic, or otherwise disruptive messages designed to annoy or offend the members. Both are not allowed. If you wish to get a point across, do so in a calm, constructive, and mature manner. Do not feed the troll. This is a serious matter and punishments may range from a verbal warning to being placed in the Silenced group, and if you continue to troll or flame, you will be banned.

    Mini-Modding/Backseat Modding
    Do not respond to anyone who is breaking the rules; warning and punishing members is the job of the administrators and moderators, and not yours. DO NOT respond to anyone breaking the rules. If you see anyone breaking the rules, the best action you can take is to make use of the report button. The message will be sent via e-mail to a staff member, and they will deal with it accordingly. If you see no action taking place within 24 hours, contact a staff member directly via PM.
    The reason we ask people not to respond is to avoid any potential flaming/trolling. We appreciate a member’s willingness to help; we simply ask that you do it properly.

    Posting Illegal Material
    Do NOT post illegal material, be it warez, pornographical images, racial material, or anything otherwise discriminating or illegal. We have a very low tolerance level for illegal topics as we'd be the ones dealing with trouble. The punishment is an instant ban.


    Plagiarism
    Plagiarism is the act of posting content that does not belong to you and claiming it as your own, and it will not be tolerated.
    -If a member suspects another member of plagiarism, they are to present their proof to a staff member via PM. Posting in a topic accusing a member of stealing will result in a warning (see MINI-MODDING). A staff member will act on it accordingly.

    Advertising
    Links posted to advertise a site, or that have nothing to do with the topic at hand are not allowed. If you wish to advertise your website you may place a link in your profile or signature.

    Your Account/Profile
    Only one account is allowed per person. If someone registers from the same IP as you (most likely by using the same computer; a sibling or something), please notify an administrator. (Creating multiple accounts will get you an automatic account and IP ban)

    Signature Images
    Signatures are pieces of text and/or images that are attached to every post you make. All forum rules apply to signatures. If your signature breaks any of the following rules you will be asked by an admin/mod to change it. If you do not change it your signature will be removed.
    Signature restrictions:
    -Images are to be no wider then 500px and no taller then 300px.
    -There is to be no more then 1 image in your signature unless they are small images. (If you are unsure PM an admin for help.)

    Advertising In Your Signature
    Signatures are one of the only two places you are allowed to advertise, but if you wish to advertise in your signature there are a couple of rules you must follow. First: Using text that is either coloured or bolded or made to stand out in any way is prohibited. And second: Linking to sites for the purpose of selling is strictly forbidden and will not be tolerated.
