    Forum Rules (last Update: 04/11/09)

    Post by Miko-Angel on Mon 01 Sep 2008, 20:02

    There may be modifications anytime, so I invite you to re-read it regularly.

    BY POSTING HERE YOU ARE AGREE TO THE BOARD RULES.

    Messages posted on the board:

    • Before you post : A search should be done to see if your questions/topics have not been already posted. You have a FAQ section where you can find answers for general questions about board management
      >> Frequently Asked Questions

    • Topic titles : When you post your question or your topic, you must use a title related to your topic/question. Words such as "Urgent", "SOS", "Question", "Problem", "Hurry" are not tolerated. Capitals should also be avoided.

    • Description of you topic/question : When you post a topic, try to be clear and accurate about what you want to say. Don't hesitate to describe your topic. The more info you give, the better we can answer you.

    • Language on this forum : When you write in English, SMS (cell phone) style message, L3375P34K (leetspeak) and deliberate mistakes must be avoided. Non-English people, as well as English people, must be able to understand what you write, so put a minimum of care in your English, even if your English is not very good (eh, Godfather...lol? Wink )

    • Colors and capitals : When you write your message, please don't abuse capitals (it means that you shout) or colors.
      Colors are reserved for moderation, therefore don't use them.

    • Flood and off-topic : Flood must be avoided. One-word posts such like "lol", "rofl" or a single smiley must be avoided.
      You must also avoid to post the same topic twice, it will not be faster for you to get a response.
      As long as you topic is not in the second page of the support section, it is useless to up it. The minimun delay between two Ups is 24 hours, according to this board's default timezone (GMT - 5).
      If you make a mistake, please use the button at the top-right of your post, to avoid double-posting

    • Other advertising : It is also forbidden to post advertising for money-related stuff, many of our members are under 18.


    Behavior on the forum
    • No Bashing
      • No bashing People (that is any single person and or group/race of people)
      • No bashing sites. (If you don't like the site, then why mention it?)
      • No bashing of groups. We like groups, and there are a bunch of them. You can say you prefer another group, but don't be a prick and say one group is better than another. Like what you like, don't what you don't. If you don't like a group, state why in a way that they can improve to your liking. They do it for free for your enjoyment, and shouldn't be bashed for any reason.
      • No bashing manga / characters. If there's something in particular you dislike about a manga or character, you can state that in an existing thread. But if you dislike a manga / character there's no need to create a thread for that, and there's no need to bash the manga / character.
      • This includes PMs that bother people.

    • No Non-constructive Criticism / Flaming :
      This is a very important rule. Criticism is always welcome, but if it does nothing to improve or help, it will be considered a flame. It has to be constructive criticism. But if the poster has requested not to be criticized, we do ask that you respect that and refrain from commenting.

    • No Excessive Spamming :

      • SPAM : Spam is a common problem that plagues websites and forums The definition of Spam is Stupid Pointless Annoying Messages, on this forum this would include: Posts containing less that eight (8) words, Double posting, Posts containing only images and links, posts containing abbreviated nonsense such as the letter "U" instead of the word "You", posts containing |337 words and Posts that are off the topic completely.
      • Spam is any post that doesn't contribute to the discussion. Excessive spamming such as emoticons will not be allowed. Spam posts will be deleted and if it becomes too excessive you should expect to hear from someone on the staff. We here at Clamp in Forumland are trying to keep this problem at a respected minimum, to do this we require the assistance of members. If you catch any spam messages, please report it to any mod/admin team members.


    • No Porn / Hentai :
      Absolutely no porn / hentai links, images or downloads. Any such posts will be modified/deleted accordingly and you will be hearing from one of the staff. Depending on the severity of the offense it may result in a ban.

    • No Stealing :
      Using other people's work without proper permission and/or properly crediting them, or posting someone else's work as your own.

    • No Duplicate Accounts :
      This means one account per person. There's no need for anyone to have more than one account. Dupe accounts will be banned immediately, so please don't create unnecessary work for the staff here. If you are banned for other reasons and yet you create a dupe account while being banned, you will be banned permanent.

    • Signature Guidelines :
      For this I refer you to Signature Policy

    • Censored Links
      It came to our attention that there are some sites that allow people to make money off , (or any links for that matter) and we as a site do not encourage or support that. Therefore links that earn a user money are forbidden from our forums. (ex. usercash.com)

    • Avatar and Profile
      • Avatar dimensions : Your avatar's width must not exceed 120 pixels and its height must not exceed 120 pxels. These limits are here to avoid scrolling for people who have a low screen resolution. You must also respect the limit of weight which is fixed to 300 KB. There are still people who have a low-speed connection, and heavy pictures take time to load for them.

      • Your avatar is not an advertising banner, so avatars with your forum URL must be avoided.

      • Sexually oriented and gore avatars must be avoided

      • Your "Age/S" field is not an advertising space, so forum URL must be avoided

    • Be Smart :
      • Remember to make your posts thoughtful and always try to invite good discussion, and have respect for other people's opinions. If we feel that you are deliberately looking to start trouble or to annoy people, don't expect either your thread or posts to last very long.

      • As long as your post is related to the topic of the thread, it won't be considered spamming or off-topic. Have fun.

    • Be Neat.
      • Look to see if a thread about your interest already exists: Most of the forums boards have handy indexes that the staff here work hard to keep updated. If you're unsure whether the topic you'd like to discuss already has a thread, please check there first.

      • Make your titles very clear: if you are creating the thread, please make sure that the topic is sufficiently self-explanatory in the title instead of making it something like 'OMG What the heck happened here?' Please, please, don't do that - if you make vague titles, even if you have an excellent first post, be prepared to see the title changed by the moderators here to better reflect the subject of the thread.

    • Be Considerate. We have a nice community here. Let's keep it that way. If you make a lot of offensive posts - anything sexual in nature, for example - they'll be deleted. If you include a lot of vulgarity in your posts, that won't be tolerated too often either. So don't be immature and silly, and you'll be just fine.


    Possible sanctions
    • If you made advertising by PM, you may see your PM mailbox disabled for a determined period

    • If your avatar doesn't respect the rules and you ignore the moderator's request to have it changed, the Administrator may forbid you from displaying an Avatar.

    • - Advertising for money-related stuff = Immediate ban

    • Ignoring the moderators' warnings and continuing to not respect the rules, insulting people and trolling may result to a simple ban from this forum, an Forumotion-wide ban or a ban forum deleted, according to the gravity of the member's fault.

    When in violation of a rule :
    In the case of most rule violations, I'll be working on a three-tier
    system. In cases of more blatant abuse, I will move directly to a
    higher level as I see fit. In general however, this is the system I
    will be following:

    Warning 1: You will receive a Private Message informing you of what rule was broken.
    Warning 2: You will receive a negative rep informing you again of this rule being broken.
    Warning 3: You will receive an infraction.
    Further warnings: If you continue to break this same rule I will
    continue to give infractions right up until you are banned from the
    forum.

    If you have any question about one of the forum rules, please PM a moderator to ask your question.

    Update (04/08/09): When quoting someone only use the basic parts of the quote that you are replying to. Otherwise we'll have too big quotes and everyone has to scroll endlessly. We want to avoid that.

    Another update for a rule :
    I have been noticing that there are increasing among of posts in which members are either just making a single-line comment as "Thanks" or "You're welcome" as their replies. I understand that it is basic courtesy to be nice and friendly. However, it didn't contribute much with the topic.
    And thus, when replying... please restrain from just saying "thanks" or "you're welcome" but add in slight comment along with it ^^

    Update (04/11/2009)And another thing that really needs to have an own rule. I guess, you all have noticed the reputation-function. Here will be given a guide-line for the usage of it (examples will follow):

    Pos. Reputation can be given for:

    - High quality posts: These are posts where the author makes his Theses and gives reasons for that. Only saying your opinion about a matter does not make your post a quality post. If you can give reasons that are persuading then your post's quality increases.

    Pos Rep is not given for:

    - A post of an author you like and who you want to make happy with that
    - A post that contains an opinion you agree with, no matter the reasons

    Negative Rep. shall be given for
    - SPAM
    - Bashing/Flaming
    - insulting comments

    negative rep is not given because

    - you disagree with the auther of a post
    - you don't like the author of a post
    - if a moderator interferes in a discussion cause he notices rule-braking. The following example shows what I mean. The way he acted was ok and the one who gave him neg. rep does not seem to like our rules. Example If you disagree with a statement a moderator does, please PM him and ask for an explanation. That is more effective and more sincere. Showing your disagreement with neg. rep does not change anything.
