Basic Forum Guidelines
« on: October 15, 2006, 12:50:14 AM »
While we prefer an open atmosphere on the forum, this isn't necessarily an "anything goes" message board. Please keep in mind the following rules:

1. No vulgar, obscene or hateful images (such as extreme pictures of graphic violence, veraciously crude materials, etc.)

2. No hateful speech (racist remarks, overt harassment, etc.) or like attacks against another member, or group of members.

3. No Avatar Abuse. Please keep your avatars fairly clean. No pornography in the avatars.

4. No spamming. Spamming is characterized by the initiation of threads or posts that contribute nothing to a forum. Examples include: empty bodies, bodies with few words that have no relation to the current thread or discussion and those posts that state they are spam, either to annoy or increase a member's post count. This determination is made by the forum Moderator or Administrator and is not up for discussion.

5. Posts in a particular forum need to stay on topic as much as possible. If you want to talk about something that is drastically removed from the topic of a forum, please post in the General Discussion forum.

Have fun and don't take everything you read too seriously. We have these rules for those that like to start to trouble, but overall we realize that the vast majority of members are respectful, contributing members of the forum. Bottom line, please respect one another and the forum!
