The Sacred Rules of this Sacred Forum

Post by Sonrio on Tue Dec 04, 2012 10:05 pm

Hey newbies. Read these rules first before you do ANYTHING on these forums.

Rule 1. Everyone should encouraged to be respectful to other (new) members of the Forums.
(This also includes for the staff.)
Note: Discrimination, Racism and Sexism are also part to this rule too.

You should not be threaten, harass or insult your fellow members, or personal attacks against any of them. Please respect the beliefs of other members. If someone acts uncivil, or harasses/intimidates you, you are not given the excuse to act the same in retaliation. Discrimination against member's age, sex, race, religion, social status, etc. is unacceptable too. If you disagree with the conduct of other members, please contact any Staff member.

Breaking this rule:
- If you discriminate against the member's age, sex, race, religion, social status, etc. :
Receives 50 Infraction Points
- For other reasons. (like just being disrespectful to another member.):
Receives 20 Infraction Points


Rule 2. Do not Spam

Don’t post Stupid Pointless Annoying Messages - this includes meaningless posts, or posts with no relevance to the thread. Such posts often do not add anything to a thread, or the topic thread itself will be deleted by the Staff (About for topic thread itself thing. As this is a better clarification, It means that the user's original post to his own thread itself was not clear or it doesn't even relate to the topic at all).

You will trigger an alert "Spam" by these qualifications.

1. Posting excessive amount and repeating the same random Words, Numbers, Punctuation Marks, etc.
2. Posting excessive amount and repeating the same Similes/Emoticons.
3. Posting excessive amount and repeating the same outrageous CAP LOCKS.
4. Posting excessive amount and repeating the same Links or Images.
5. Double/Triple Posting at once.
6. Off-topic (It when a member say/reply something random or your post is not relative, meaning which it doesn't relates to the topic at all).
7. Duplicated Threads (A thread plus a similar Thread equals a Duplicated Threads).

Breaking this rule:
Receives 5 Infraction Points

Rule 3. No Trolling

Inflammatory or irrelevant messages with the sole intent of provoking other users or inciting controversy or excessively breaking the forum rules is considered "trolling". We consider trolling to be unacceptable as it undermines the friendly environment that we aim for. A simple break of this rule will may result an Permanent Ban or I.P. Ban. This forum had some trolling incidents in the past of our history of the forums, and were not gonna have this same kind of issue over and over in the future.

Breaking this rule:
Permanent Ban or I.P. Ban

Rule 4. Swearing is allowed but don't over say it too much.
Note: Swearing is also relates like cussing, vulgar, profanity, and foul/or inappropriate language.

Although this is an all ages forum. You may swear the forums boards since the forums has a censor system. The censor system blocks any swear words for some members that doesn't really want to see a swear word. However, please don't make an habit to swear constantly, also please don't swear directly against to another member, or don't even outrageously swear to everyone as well.

Unless if you really need to swear, please use the rightful ***asterisks***. Again, if you really need to swear. I would recommend you to asterisk EVERYTHING depending how many letters from that swear word.
But we also accept these kind of asterisk swear type words, as like for these examples.
F***, F**k, S*** , or F*g

Oh yeah, one more thing. There are some other Swear Words are not have yet censored. So, that means they are acceptable minor swear words in this forum. This includes to the chatbox as well. However, please don't use these words like to say directly against to another member, or to everyone in here. Like being said, here are the following acceptable minor swear words that is allowed to use in the forums.
Ass, Damn, Hell, and Bastard

Breaking this rule:
Receives 10 Infraction Points

Rule 5. Inappropriate Content is not allowed
Notice: This rule also includes your avatars and your signatures too.

The forums does NOT accept any inappropriate content like Adult Content such as like pornography, sexual content, or obscene (something like if the image/link is yuck, eww, or disgusting) from an image, a link, or even a video! Likewise, this is an all ages forum, and deliberately posting too inappropriate content will lead to receiving more Infraction Points.

Breaking this rule:
Receives 10 or 30 Infraction Points

Rule 6. No illegal Material

Please also note. You may discuss about the Emulators itself, TV shows, video games (Roms and Rom hacks), music, or software are acceptable for the time being. However, you may not discuss how to obtain these materials (download links) or link to sites that contain these materials.

Breaking this rule:
Receives 20 Infraction Points

Rule 7. Advertising is prohibited

You can post any link (like Youtube, etc.) whatever that relates to topic. However, the forums doesn't allow any member to advertise your forums, any other forums, site, or anything that is involves joining/registering from a link. It's pretty simple rule really. Just don't be an advertiser. If the new registered Members are found to be joining the forum for the purpose of advertising may be Permanently Banned.

Breaking this rule:
- For the active/or existing members:
Receives 10 Infraction Points
- Joining to advertise:
Permanent Ban or I.P. Ban

Rule 8. You may NOT create another account (Multiple/Double Accounts).

For existing members: Unless you have a good valid reason (forgetting your password, etc.). Then were okay with that, but we have to ban your first account for safety measures. In the other hand, your 2nd Account will be deleted AND your original account will receive Infraction Points. Unless, if you really want to request a username change. Then, please click right here. Again, you don't need multiple accounts. Only just stick to your original account. It's simple as that.

If you didn't realized this. The Staff can determine if you using another account by looking your I.P.'s to see if you made another account with the same I.P. address to your original account.

Overall, Double accounts is still unacceptable. Especially for the user's original account was Temporarily Banned or Suspended or even Permanently banned. Please don't even bypass your ban by creating another account. Serious punishments will more likely result an I.P. Banned or Permanently Banned.

Breaking this rule:
- For the active/or existing members:
Your 2nd Account will be deleted and receives 50 Infraction Points

- Bypassing your Ban (Again, your 2nd Account will be deleted as the following):
--- If your original account was still in Suspension/Temporarily ban mode:
Your Suspension/Temp Ban mode will have extension for additional 2 more weeks.
--- If your original account was Permanently Banned:
More likely an I.P. Ban or Permanent Ban

Rule 9. Don't bump any (old) threads that hasn't replied over 2 Months.
Note: This rule does not include for the Staff.

I'll say this again. Bumping any old threads that hasn't replied like OVER 2 MONTHS is unacceptable. Like for instance. If a member reply a thread that hasn't replied since August 1, 2012. Then a member replied a thread in a day of October 1, 2012 is considering bumping a thread. Some users doesn't like threads that are revived even me. However, there is only one solution to solve this bumping issue.

The only Solution?

The Staff has the rights to revive threads that hasn't replied over 2 Months. If you want a thread to be revived (or bumped), then feel free to contact any Staff member! They just simply reply and revive a 2 month thread that you've requested for.

Breaking this rule:
Receives 5 Infraction Points

Rule 10. No Mini-Modding

Self explanatory. We really appreciative for helping us to stop these rule breakers. However, please refrain it by using the Report button or contact a Staff Member. Instead of you post directly to a user that broke a rule or some other reasons. Likewise, YOU the members are NOT the Staff members of the forums, AND please let the Staff do our jobs. We'll handle this for you.

Breaking this rule:
Receives 5 Infraction Points

Note: Infraction bar decreases instead of increase, so don't freak out when it says 100%.
