!Knights Of Murdoc™ Forum Rules!

Post  Asheon on 17th October 2010, 15:14

Please note this list does not include the full terms of service (also known as your user agreement). These rules and guidelines are designed to help give a better understanding of what behavior is expected and make your experience more enjoyable and safe.


Rules (DON'Ts):

1. No discussion of any illegal activity or threats of violence. (ie. illicit drug use or exchange, threats of suicide or self-injury, or threatened or intended physical harm). Discussions of suicide or self-harm that are deemed negative and therefore potentially injurious to others are also not permitted.

2. No use of explicit, obscene or vulgar language or images and/or messages, including racist remarks, or link sites that break this rule.

3. No posts that attack, insult, "flame", defame, or abuse members or non-members. Respect other members of the community and don’t belittle, make fun off, or insult another member or non-member. Decisions about health and well-being are highly personal, individual choices. "Flaming" and insults, however, will not be tolerated. Agree to disagree. This applies to both the forums and chat.

4. No advertising or links to advertising or "Spam" is permitted (including signatures).
Advertising or Spam is defined as posting a link for the purpose of selling, soliciting or promoting by someone that has ownership or other "vested interest" to the web site involved, including efforts to promote other online forums or web sites by web site owners.
If you are a web site owner and have a link that fits into this category that you want to share, please submit it to our resource directory and we will review your submission.
Only links to personal home pages are allowed in signatures and member profiles. Links must be appropriate and abide by rules #1-3 or they will be removed.
Links to helpful web sites (commercial or otherwise) are allowed when they are posted by someone without any "vested interest" AND whose purpose is NOT to solicit, advertise, promote, fundraise, etc.

5. No links to any web site or use of any username that fits into rules # 1-3 above.

6. No use of multiple usernames. Please register and use only one username for the forums. Posting under multiple user accounts will result in administrative action (ie. banning).

7. No posts of copyrighted material. Information copyrighted or owned by any individual or entity other than the person posting should not be posted on the message boards without the consent of the owner.

8. No posts of lengthy articles. Sharing information is allowed, but the forums are not to be used to publish articles. It is an improper use of critical forum resources.

9. No posts of an overtly political or religious nature OR posts promoting advocacy of particular personal, medical, legal, religious, political, or non-profit causes. Debating controversial subjects should be taken elsewhere. Limited religious references are allowed (ie. "my prayers are with you" or a brief quote as part of a larger post), but the forums should not be used to convert others.

10. No cryptic posts. Using cryptic messages to "skirt" the rules is not permitted.

11. If it shouldn’t be viewed by minors, then it shouldn’t be posted to the forums or chat rooms. This is a public, friendly forum. In addition, if something would not be considered “work safe” (to a boss or co-worker), then it shouldn’t be posted.

12. Do not disrespect moderators. Be respectful in both the forums and any private communications with moderators. Moderators are volunteers that donate many, many hours of their own time to help in the forums and chat rooms. Violations of this rule will not be tolerated.

13. No SHOUTING. Remember, using ALL CAPITAL LETTERS in posts is considered yelling and rude, plus it is difficult to read.

14. Do not post offline personal contact information (ie. your home address, phone numbers etc.) and do not ask for personal information from others. Modify your member profile to set privacy settings for your account. Use of full names (your first and last name) is allowed but strongly discouraged. This is to protect your security and identity.

15. No duplicate posts. To delete accidental duplicate posts, login first, then open the message you want to delete, then select the Delete Post button on the top right hand corner of the message box.

16. No irrelevant or off-topic posts. Posts which are not relevant to the forum topic may be deleted at the moderator's discretion. Posts which are only 3-5 words long are considered irrelevant. Posts only saying, "Yes I Agree" or "That's Cool" are such examples.

17. No lengthy signatures. Limit signatures to 10 lines or less. Moderators will edit and/or remove signatures that are too long.

Guidelines (DO's):

1. Check for open topics. Before posting a new topic, please check to see if there is already a topic open on the subject.

2. Report posts that violate the rules and guidelines by linking the post in violation to the administrator in a message. We will act on the report as quickly as we can. Do not reply to the offending post as that typically only encourages the poster.

3. Lend a helping hand. A bit of compassion can go a long way toward helping people. We're all different, but we're really all the same. At sometime or another, we all need or want help or simply someone with whom we can share our burdens or successes.

4. Don't be afraid to share. Everyone has an opinion and we'd like to hear yours, whether it's about a game or video post or other topic here in the forums.

5. Welcome new members. When newcomers arrive, say "hi" and welcome them. Help new folks "learn the ropes" about how to find information and resources, save time, and how to get involved. You will also find a lot of help using the forums themselves.

6. Use descriptive titles for new posts. Avoid "generic" post subjects like "Help" or "Question". You will receive a better response to your posts by being more descriptive about the content of your post.

Know Your Moderators:

Knights of Murdoc Community forums and chat rooms are moderated by volunteers. While they may not have answers to all your questions, moderators are here to help in any way they can. Moderators have the right to edit or delete posts without prior notice that violate any of the rules above. They are also responsible to keeping promoting participation in the forums and chats. You can spot a moderator because their posts indicate that they are moderators. We are always looking for new moderators to help with our many different topics. Anyone that shows helpfulness and usefulness in both forum and chat will be considered for more responsibility.

Each moderator, being human with different life experiences, may see things through slightly different eyes and some variance is to be expected. However, moderators promise to base their decision making on the content of posts rather than personal feelings about the person posting in them most of the time.

If you have a question for a moderator on a decision, you can PM them and discuss it privately. They may not see things the same way you do, but they are open and approachable.

Please Remember:

Users that do not abide by the rules may be subject to having their posts edited or deleted, their member account permanently banned from further access and/or deleted without notice.
Rules and guidelines may change at any time, please re-read them regularly.
