PostSubject: Forum Rules And Conduct   Thu Feb 03, 2011 4:34 am

The Following is a list of all the current forum rules that must be followed by all members and visitors also the entire forum is governed by the Code of Conduct and the Terms and Conditions. Be sure to read them and follow them or appropriate actions will be taken. Repeated behaviour considered inappropriate by Administrators and/or Moderators may result in your account being suspended/banned from our forums and even in game, warning may be sent for smaller offences before any actions are taken but not guaranteed. Please be sure to also follow all specific games forum rules since those are in addition to these rules and must be respected.



General Forum Rules:

Do Not Link to inappropriate websites. This includes, but is not limited to, sites containing adult content, information on any type of software piracy, or racially offensive materials. This will get you permanently banned.

Do not post inappropriate images (Nudity, other people's photos, images suggesting suicide or real world violence/hatred, racism)

Do not make any Sexist, Sexually Themed, Racist, or Hate threads or posts.

Do not make any threads about using, planning, discussing, or taking part in illegal activities such as theft, hacking, drugs,
killing, etc. (standards based on USA, Canada, and UK).

No obscenities of any kind in any forum.

Never insult any person or group of people on the forum.

Do not troll the forums or feed any trolls.

Do not attempt to buy, sell, or barter accounts, or anything else for that matter on these boards. Or you will be banned.

No political or religious discussion of any kind will be tolerated on the forums. These kinds of conversations almost always devolve into insult contests or flame wars.

Do not Flame each other! Use your manners and common sense. If you disagree with someone, do so gracefully.

Additionally do not link to websites such as youfail.org or any other website pertaining to it in identical nature. It will be treated like spam and dealt with accordingly.

Impersonating forum moderators and/or any other employees associated to The Four Wars and is strictly prohibited. Do not break this rule. You will be permanently banned. Also, do not “forum cop”!

No quote pyramids (That's five or more posts quoted).

Spamming should never be done under any circumstances.

Do not reply to spam in anyway shape or form or you yourself may be banned from the forums or worse. If you see any
posts that have degraded to spam wars or have any other infraction in them please let a forum moderator know and they will take the appropriate steps.

Keep your signature/Avatar clean, no profanity, racial material, drug references, nudity, extreme violence, any illegal activities or objects, overtly religious or political propaganda, and/or links to any other site that contains any of these things. *note* If your forum avatar offends some people it will be reviewed and may be subject to removal based on the discretion of staff.

Do not "bump" your screen shots, gallery or movies links. If you want to post something like that one post will do. And where possible avoid posting ultra large images. Link to a image or video hosting website instead!

Bumping other thread types is also prohibited and may result in your topic being closed or removed.

Noob, Newbie, N00b, nub, and any other variants on the word newb can be considered insulting and may result in being edited or removed or infracted. (If the word is being used self directed and not in a bad way then it might be allowed at the Moderators or Admins discretion).

Don't use the forums as a means of communicating with a specific person. That is what Private Messages are for.

Avoid where possible "breaking" the page width or forum formatting by adding images or repeating or special characters.

Do not post in all Capital letters. Additionally do not post in “leet” speak or with special characters/symbols.

Do not create threads with "attention-grabbing" subject lines such as all-caps, excessive punctuation, or out-of-context special symbols or characters.

Typing upside down using an online translator is grounds for an infraction. Don't do it.

Do not make posts with excessive spacing with no text.




Privacy/ Harassment
Never post anyone else’s personal information on the forum without their consent and be sure to not bother them via forum posts, PMs, or any other form of communication on anything by The Four Wars or you will be dealt with severely.

Forum Signatures/Avatars
Keep your signature/Avatar clean, no profanity, racial material, drug references, nudity, extreme violence, any illegal activities or objects, overtly religious or political propaganda, and/or links to any other site that contains any of these things. *note* If your forum avatar offends some people it will be reviewed and may be subject to removal based on the discretion of The Four Wars staff. Also keep your signature area to a size no larger than 500 pixels length and 150 pixels height total (This includes all images and text you use)

English Only
All forum posts and PM’s to Admins and Mods must be written in English at all times. Threads not following these rules will be removed and appropriate actions will be taken against the user.

Use of CAPS
Excessive use of capitals in messages is inappropriate. On the Internet caps signifies shouting. Be polite, no one likes to be yelled at, so keep your caps lock off. Threads with all caps will be removed.

Spamming
Spamming should never be done under any circumstances! Do not reply to spam in anyway shape or form or you yourself may be blacklisted or worse. If you see any posts that have degraded to spam wars or have any other infraction in them please let a forum moderator know and they will take the appropriate steps. Users who spam may be banned from the forum and/or games.

Old Thread Revival
Please avoid reviving threads that are weeks and months old. We will either delete your new messages and lock the thread or remove the whole topic altogether. Repeated Necromancy of old threads may result in a suspension from the game/forums because this will be considered as abusive use of the forums.

Thread Locked/Removal Discussion
Discussing a locked or removed thread is forbidden and any posts found in regards to this will be removed. These threads were adjusted for a reason. If you have a problem with a thread that was removed, send a private message to an Administrator or Moderator.

Advertising of other services/websites
Do not advertise other sites or services on these forums. Threads consisting of advertisements for sites/services will be removed.

Staff, Administrator, Moderator, Harassment
All members of our community are expected to respect all staff at The Four Wars at all times. This includes Moderators who are here to help us better serve the community.




What to do if you encounter Spam.
If you encounter a spam topic report it via the Report Spam
Do not reply to spam.
If you feel a topic is in need of immediate attention report it to multiple Moderators.


Helpful tips on posting to a forum.
Use a spell checker to check your posts for misspellings (please search for info on how to enable that feature on your browser). There's no point in making a forum topic if we can't understand it because of multiple spelling errors.
Use the Search Feature
Always check the stickies, they contain useful information and can likely answer most questions.
