Forum Rules at the Forums Page

Postby Maharlika » Thu Dec 10, 2009 3:27 am

In light of the recent discussion at the Problematic Members thread, I propose a Forum Rules section as I seem not to see one. I recall though, that there was one in the old version of the website.

In addition, I think there is a need to further clarify that discussions or statements alluding to deliberate use, approval and direct participation of the use of pirated softwares is strictly prohibited in this site.

Prolly would look something like this:

1) Posting external links [color="DarkOrange"]and discussions on deliberate use, approval and direct participation of the use of pirated softwares[/color]: Whenever posting external links be sure of their content, we don't want anything that would be deemed inappropriate. If you are unsure about whether it is appropriate PM a mod and we will make a judgment. Also when posting external links give a description of what it features. Please remember that links to porn, illegal software and the like will result in immediate action and possibly a loss of your posting privileges. [b][color="DarkOrange"][color="DarkOrange"]Statements alluding to tolerated and admitted use of pirated softwares are not permitted[/color][/color][/b]. This also includes advertising for your web site or links to sites for personal profit. These will result in your being banned.


Of course, you can improve on my suggestion but you know what I mean. ;) I just figured that 10 rules look better than 11 rules. :D

Now over to you Buck and fellow Mods. :)

I totally support having a link to the forum rules at the forum page. The only way I can currently found the forum rules, is when I log out. Then a link to the forum rules appears in the text for new members.

It would be nice to have them easily accesible. Currently, the only way I know how to get to them is via a link in the SYM rule thread. Which I posted in the problem member thread and now can't delete.

It's been one of those weeks.

Hmm, with the new layout it might be easier if I post the rules as a sticky in the GameBanshee Discussion forum and we can link to it there. Thoughts?

I think that's good, provided there's a link directly to the rules from the forum menu strip (user cp, blogs, FAQ, etc).
To the Righteous belong the fruits of violent victory. The rest of us will have to settle for warm friends, warm lovers, and a wink from a quietly supportive universe.

I think it would be better if you have a sole link to it in the menu line right between "FAQ" and "Community" at the Forums Main Page. :)

That's what I wanted to have too, thanks Buck!
