PostSubject: Ultra GunZ Forum Rules //   Tue Apr 28, 2009 7:33 pm

Each rule is listed below, along with examples of possible offenses. They are followed by some related questions and answers to help you understand the rule and its effects.

The following guidelines are not all-inclusive and may not address all manner of inappropriate behavior. Please remember that you must always treat others with the same respect and courtesy you would wish to receive. Use common sense when posting. Although it may not be in the rules to not post a virus, it should be common sense not to post it.

RULE 1: Inappropriate behavior/content:

This includes, but is not limited to: Racism, "flaming", posting of pornographic images, assaulting or harassing of other members. This rule may be interpreted at the moderator's discretion.

Additional Notes:

Flaming by definition is the act of purposely trying to assault another member to provoke a response of negativity from that member. That is why the act of it is prohibited.

RULE 2: Impersonation of a Staff Member:

We do not have any "hidden moderators" or "hidden administrators" of any kind. Users who tell you that they are staff and request personnel information will be harshly dealt with.
Impersonation includes having a symbol referring to a Staff Position in your avatar/signature.

How to identify the staff:
• All Forum Administrators have a Red Text Name.
• All Forum Moderators have a Greem Text Name.
• All Forum GMs have a Light Blue Text Name.
• All Forum Female Mods have a Pink Text Name.


RULE 3: Asking for Staff Positions:

We understand that most members wish to become a part of our staff, and therefore we have set this rule in place because the administrators are busy as it is. They do not need to have additional work piled on them with people asking for staff positions.

If the staff feel you have earned the position, we will approach you and ask if you'd like to be a part of the moderation team.

RULE 4: Advertising/Websites:

You may Advertise Homemade Websites, or give a Website link to a member who requested it!

Anything that isn't in the above title is prohibited. Mis-leading links, pornographic sites, etc, are a bannable offense, and the ban usually means a permanent one. If another member is requesting the link to a site for a download, however, and you know it, feel free to give it to them. However, if you trick them with a misleading link, you will be punished, harshly.

http://ultra-gunz.forumotion.com is also not responsible for the links posted by members. Once outside of ultra-gunz Website, you are outside of the site's "acceptable use" of site links and site content.

RULE 5: Encouraging Others to Break Rules:

Examples of encouraging others to break any of the rules include:

● Convincing other players that the rules are different to what they actually are.
● Flaming other players (trying to get a reaction from other players by using offensive language against them.)
● Posting to say that you've broken a rule and got away with it.
● Anything which promotes rule breaking in a positive manner.

RULE 6: Misuse of Official Forums:

Misuse of the forum message boards can go as follows:

-Harassment of other members
-Posting sensitive or otherwise, private, information about other members here on the forums that you had no right to post.
-Posting spam [ Posting twice or more in a row or "bumping" is not allowed and considered spam ]
-De-railing topics
-Harrassment of moderators
-Impersonation of staff
-Signature rule violating (Ex: Too big, or has inappropriate content)
-Gravedigging threads more than 1-2 months old.

Quitting threads

-If you're quitting, you're allowed to leave, but making a thread about it is not. If you really need to say goodbye to people, PM them, instead of making a thread. Not only isn't it allowed, but it's good bait for flaming and a lot of other spam posts. Generally, quitting threads tend to cause a lot of spam and arguing amongst the posters in the thread, which results in the thread getting locked anyway.

---> The above may be interpreted how the staff see's fit.

What about my freedom of speech?

http://ultra-gunz.forumotion.com is a privately operated message board under which the administrators and moderators decide what content may or may not be posted.

This is not discouraging opinion voicing, but it is discouraging the use of foul language or the use of sexual language.

Rule 7: Respect Staff members:

A Moderator's decision is final. No if's, and's, or but's. (Respect Moderator's. Simple enough)

They are not idols to make fun of, they run the forum and garner your respect. If you do have a problem with a moderator, take it up with an admin.

Rule 8: Do not Backseat Moderate:

Backseat Moderating means:
-No acting like your a mod/admin
-Do not make posts like, "LOCKED" or "CLOSED"
-Do not make a thread that only a Moderator should make, for example; "Stop Spamming". Pretty much anything related to that.

We know your just trying to help, but for the stuff above please let us take care of it.

You are responsible even if you didn't read the rules!
