Forum Rules and Regulations

Post by Austindo on Tue Sep 14, 2010 10:11 pm

Below are the rules and regualations for gamenation.

[If you are going to apply for a moderator position, you MUST read these rules before you can apply. I will need you to summarize to me the rules when you become a mod.]

Thank you,
Admin Austindo140

gamenation.freegametalk.com is a sole entity forum. This means each user is entitled to one username. If you are caught using multiple usernames, you will be subject to immediate ip based banning. If you wish to change your username notify a moderator or administrator. You MUST provide a valid reason for the change. (Note: "some guy I dont like is harassing me" and "Im tired of everyone hating me" are not valid reasons). Registration is free and you must use a valid email address when registering. gamenation.freegametalk.com will not disclose email addresses to spam providers.



Code Of Conduct

The purpose of gamenation.freegametalk.com is to hold civil discussions about videogames, the videogame industry, and all videogame-related material. The Open Topic forum is also available for general discussion, but follows the same basic principals, requirements, and terms for acceptable material. Heated debates on the forums are welcome, as long as they abide by the established guidelines. If an administrator or moderator sees that a thread or poster violates these guidelines, the thread may be closed or deleted, and posters may be permanently or temporarily banned from the forum. We play no favorites here. Your post count or association with other posters does not protect you from being banned. Bans may be enacted due to one extreme bad act or a string of minor bad acts. You may appeal the decision by contacting a moderator or administrator.



Abusive/Offensive Language

By registering on the gamenation.freegametalk.com forums you agree not to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise violative of any law. Sexual, racial, or ethnic slurs will not be tolerated in any form and are bannable on the first offense. It is recommended that cursing be held to a minimum, as it does not promote civil conversation. Foul language in the form of insults directed towards other forum members may result in a ban.



Trolling

Trolling is considered to be the act of purposely being disingenuous to an active discussion. In other words, being contradictory just to get a rise out of the posters. Negative commentary on given topics is by no means disallowed; however, such comments should attempt to be substantiated. No matter your supposed intent, if the forum administrators perceive you as a troll making unsubstantiated comments in an attempt to provoke the forum body, actions may be taken by the administrators.



Images/Pictures/Illustrations

Images of a sexual or profane nature are discouraged. Images presenting exposed genitalia, bared buttocks, and/or female nipple/aureola are not allowed. Outside of this, common sense and a "safe-for-work" rule should be the primary considerations. Also, spamming the forum with the same image is not allowed and is subject to banning. Avatar image size should not be greater than 90 pixels by 120 pixels, and no greater than 150k in size, exceptions will be tolerated provided they are not "over the top."



Copyrighted Material

The posting of FULL transcriptions of articles and whole or partially-scanned images is not allowed. Users in breach of this rule are subject to banning, although a verbal warning may be administered for a first offense. The posting of review scores (without text), news summaries, rumors, and review paraphrasing is acceptable, as long as credit is given to the original source.



Emulation/Piracy

The topics of emulation and piracy, including the technical nature of emulators and ROM images, hardware modification technology, as well as their effect on the industry as a political topic are deemed to be generally acceptable.

However, linking to pirate download sites, directions on how to get pirated software to work, reviews or impressions of pirated software are NOT acceptable and will all result in the banning of the user in question.



Spam/Advertising

Outside advertisements or solicitations promoted by posting messages, private messaging, or e-mailing users via gamenation.freegametalk.com Forums is unacceptable and will be subject to banning. Examples include: pyramid schemes, affiliate links, your own website, or any other entity which you are posting solely for the purpose of promotion.



Signatures, Images, & Fonts

We are going for a certain look here on gamenation.freegametalk.com, so excessively large images, huge fonts with ugly colors, and overly excessive signatures will not be allowed.



Moderation Rules & Enforcement

Moderation of the gamenation.freegametalk.com forum is a sole-based system. All decisions with regards to thread closure and movement, permanent and temporary bans, and membership issues are made by gamenation.freegametalk.com Forum Administrators and are subject to review by the combined administrator and moderator caucuss. You may appeal your ban, but if that appeal fails you may not appeal it again.

Considering the real-time nature of the gamenation.freegametalk.com forums, it is impossible for us to review messages or confirm the validity of information posted. Please remember that we do not actively monitor the contents of and are not responsible for any messages posted. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message. The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of this forum or any entity associated with this forum. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately by email. We have the ability to remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, so please realize that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately.

Although we cannot review every messages posted, and are not responsible for the content of any of these messages, we reserve the right to delete any message for any or no reason whatsoever. You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages, and you agree to indemnify and hold Wiispace.com not responsible for any claim based upon the information, service, or opinion provided in your post, or for any issue arising from the posting of said information, service, or opinion.

For breaking above rules you may be warned/banned appropriately!
