Thread: Mandatory Reading:

  1. #1

    Default Mandatory Reading:

    Okay, it has become readily apparent that some folks on this board cannot follow some simple rules that we've put in place over the years. So, a more rigid set of rules will be implemented to guide the users and moderators.

    We've been doing this for almost twelve years now, and I am determined to have this board return to the civility that was commonplace when it was first started.

    Common courtesy to fellow posters and civil discourse is expected, and that appears to have been in extremely short supply over the last day.

    As a result, we will be taking a much firmer approach to how the moderators monitor postings on this messageboard. There will be no more 'gray' areas. The rules are simple, and they will be abided by or your time on this private message board will be short lived. These rules will apply to every post we see.

    We welcome your comments, whatever your point of view. This is simply a reminder that commenting is a privilege and comes with responsibility. Everyone benefits from a civil conversation, which is why we ask that you observe the following directives:


    There will be no player bashing. It is one thing to say player "x" did not perform to capabilities or expectations, another to say they inhale vigorously or something similiar.

    Make sure your comments are on topic, directly addressing the subject of the thread;

    Do not insult or attack other commenters (disagree but don't be disagreeable);

    Offer substantive comments, not just name-calling or sloganeering;

    Avoid spamming (same message posted more than once); 30 messages or hijacking multiple threads with the same message IS spam and no one likes spam.

    There will be no swearing. Substituting phonetically altered spellings are not acceptable either, to include use of 'wildcard' characters such as ** to replace letters. Profanity, gratuitously graphic imagery or suggestive phrasing which is clearly demeaning or profane will not be tolerated.

    Commenters who violate our rules will be blocked for a predetermined time frame and all their comments will disappear.




    First time violators of this new policy will receive a single warning. This will also be your last warning before you receive a minimum 3 day suspension.

    Second violations will result in a minimum 3 day suspension of posting priveleges.

    Additional violations will result in a minimum week long suspension of posting priveleges.

    It is NOT the moderators desire nor intention to be actively engaged in blocking or banning access, however if circumstances warrant such activity, it will occur.

    If you receive a ban or block, do not waste your time or mine trying to explain your way out of a suspension. These rules are very simple to follow, and if you cannot follow these rules, we do not want you posting on this messageboard.

    And finally, one word of advice. If you find that a particular poster bothers you, you may set your profile to "ignore" that poster. Do not complain to the moderators about someone's posts, if you have not bothered to set your profile to ignore that poster.

    Any questions regarding these rules, please contact me directly via PM (Eagle22)

    A quick BUMP to this and an addition:

    Please keep your posts in the right forum. If there is an obvious case of abuse, warnings will be issued.

    These rules are still in effect. Read them, observe them and follow them.
