Forum Rules of RetributionX

Post by Mr McSexy on Fri Mar 29, 2013 8:35 pm

Advertising

- We will not accept advertising here. Any advertising of forums or other communities/websites will not be accepted. If you do happen to see advertising, you are to report it to a member of staff immediately and it will be removed. Advertising is not permitted by any means, anywhere on the forum. This includes signatures, profiles, graphics (or requests), private messages, usertitles, and such customizable spaces. Some servers have their server addresses the same as their website. If this is the case, then unfortunately, you will not be permitted to advertise it on RetributionX and it is the same as the website/forum/community. There are exceptions for major websites such as google, youtube, yahoo etc. Note: Search engine links containing search results that lead to forums aren't allowed of course If you post an image that displays a link to a forbidden website, it is punishable. Referral website(s) are also not allowed anywhere on the forum.


Please understand that linking to a website which contains a forum link is STILL considered advertising, and is punishable. The above becomes void if Affiliate status or advertising rights are purchased.(Spam rule still applies)



Multiple Accounts

- Using alternative accounts to abuse a retributionX system or to violate said rules may result in your primary account to be suspended.


Flame/Censor Evasion
This rule includes but is not limited to:

- Using offensive words(Ie. Dumbfuck, fucking idiot, etc) directed directly at a member of RetributionX.
- Using ASCII character codes or bbcode to evade the censor we have in place will result in an infraction.


Harassment

- Harassment will not be tolerated. The punishment for harassment will vary from mild, to severe depending on the situation at hand, offenses committed, and other such factors. Racism, ageism, sexism, discrimination, segregation, and such offensive manners are also considered harassment and under no conditions will they be tolerated. This includes offensive language that is directed at a member, or members of our community. There is to be no foul, stereo-typical, or abusive language allowed. Constantly attacking a user or following them around forums belittling/offending them is also considered harassment. Offensive language is permitted, but still discouraged, if it is not directed at a member of our community. If you receive any type of harassment via private message, please report offense immediately. Extortion of any sort will not be allowed on either the forums or the shoutbox.
Note: Harassment is similar to flaming.

(Organized) Malicious Conduct

- (Organized) malicious conduct may lead to severe account action. The malicious conduct can vary from denial of service attacks, group/mass spamming, registering an account with intent to cause trouble, and malicious software. This also includes providing software to engage in such acts.

Inappropriate Content (18+ Links/Images, Gore/Morbid Images, 18+ Literature, and the like)

- You are not permitted to post or send links or images of pornography, child pornography, nudity, gore, or obscure/inappropriate content to other forums members. Brief child nudity is prohibited(Ex. 15 year old girl in bikini set). Furthermore, erotica (sexually charged literature) is not permitted. The punishment for this is severe. This includes linking to websites that may redirect, contain, or lead to these types of links or images, as well as images that are disturbing. It also adheres to websites that may hijack ones browser, as well as phishing. Infractions or bans will be laid immediately if you are caught participating in this offense.
Note: This also applies to your signature, avatar & profile picture along with requesting such content.

Encouraging/Aggravating Others To Break Rules

- You are not allowed encourage or aggravate others to break rules. This includes taunting, ridiculing & provoking. The punishment for this will vary on the severity of its outcome.

Discussion Of Ranks

- You are not permitted to make requests on peoples ranks. Suggestions of ranks relating to a specific users or a user is strictly prohibited. The administrators will notice you if you are doing a good job, and they will choose who will be assigned the moderator or other roles. You also may not publicly request for a user to be banned publicly. If you so wish for this please feel free to privately contact a member of staff. Your request will be heavily reviewed and discussed before action is taken. All reasons must be valid, and make sense according to these rules.

Spam
This rule includes but is not limited to:

-Excessive posting communicating similar phrases or pure gibberish.
-Posting completely off-topic A LOT. (Use common sense)
-Necro is also considered spam(Bringing forth an old thread).
-Using languages other than US-English and EU-English

Please make your posts meaningful. Think about what you are posting before doing so, and make sure it abides with the forum rules. Posting meaningless messages or messages in another language besides EU-English and US-English will be considered spam.

Posting/Releasing Personal Details Or Images Of Other Users

- We will not stand for this kind of behavior. You are strictly not allowed to post sensitive or personal information of other members of our community. Do not even consider doing this without the full prior written consent of the person who's details or image it so happens to be. Action will be taken against your account unless you post picture or video proof of the written consent.

Leeching

- Leeching includes claiming other peoples work, projects, images, graphics, servers, clients, and such things as your own, and involves a wide variety of things. Leeching will be punished with infractions, or possibly bans. It is considered as stealing ones work, and therefore is not allowed. Please refrain from leeching.

Staff Impersonation

- Impersonating staff will lead to a lengthy ban. This includes portraying yourself to be a part of the staff team. This also includes manipulating new or confused members with your knowledge, and intentionally misleading them. Asking or telling members to donate to your PayPal account for the donator rank will fall under this category as well.

Respect

- Respect is an important rule here at RetributionX. It is important to respect each other, and always strive to be a better person than you may be, or already are. This is what makes a community strong. You must respect the other members, the other staff, and the rules. You can respect the rules by abiding by them. Please remember to especially treat new members, or new staff with respect. Remember, they are only wanting to be a part of the community, or only trying to make it better. They have as much right to be there as you do.

Abuse of a RetributionX system

- Any abuse of a RetributionX system may result in a ban, or denied access to extra features. So please use each feature with respect. (Ie. Rep4Rep will be classified under this, Any form of a Rep4Rep/Rep Begging attribute in any area of this forum may cause your reputation to be dropped by 75%, Posting extremely large/disruptive images in reputation comments, or systematic reputation attacks.)


Please Remember! +Independent rule statements
