After a long wait, I've finally posted these rules (Taken from eurospore) And these are the new rules, effective immediately. I'd recommend you read these carefully.
You may not use the Forums to:
* Transmit any unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable content.
* Post or transmit sexually explicit images or other content that is deemed by the administrators or moderators to be offensive.
* Impersonate any person including, but not limited to, an administrator or Moderator.
* Post or transmit chain letters or pyramid or money schemes.
* "Spam" by posting frequent and/or annoying messages in the forums.
Please find below examples of what the above activities may consist in.
Offensive or Damaging Links
Users who post links to "browser bombs," which open multiple windows or sites with offensive content, will be banned.
Harassment occurs when a Forums user targets another individual to cause distress, embarrassment, unwanted attention, or other personal discomfort. We do not condone harassment in any form. While you may disagree with someone's point of view, personal attacks, or attacks based on a person's race, national origin, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disablement, or other such affiliation are prohibited. If you have a disagreement with someone's point of view, address the subject, not the person.
This also extends to likenesses, threatening to, or actually using images of others within photoshop is strictly prohibited within this forum. IF you actually publish any of this material on here, that will result in an instant ban... the only exceptions are where the user in questions has given previous consent IN PUBLIC.
Sexually Explicit Images
EuroSpore prohibits the transfer or posting of sexually explicit images or other content deemed offensive by the administrators and moderators. In addition to the sanctions mentioned above, you may be subject to civil liability and/or investigation and prosecution by law enforcement.
This also goes for discussion of a sexual nature and sexual innuendo.
This can involve the use of another persons identity.
Chain Letters or Pyramid or Money Schemes
Transmission of chain letters or pyramid schemes of any kind is not allowed in the Forums. These materials are considered a nuisance by many users, and certain chain letters and pyramid schemes may be illegal. Users who create Posts for commercial purposes or any Posts that are designed to generate money for themselves will be sanctioned.
Your access to the Forums and/or to the Site may be terminated for posting frequent and/or annoying messages in the Forums. An example is posting the same message to multiple Forums.
This also includes Smilie spam within the chatbox. The only time this is exempted is with the addition of smiles - spam is then tolerated for testing and excitement puroses for several minutes, however, after this period, it is NOT tolerated.
Bumping and Necroing
Threads are bumped because they have fallen low down on the lists, both within the forum and on the Latest Topics. Please refrain from bumping any thread that has not been posted in, in the last 24 hours. It is also helpful if you leave thread bumping to the OP Holder (unless allowed by said person).
Any thread that has not been posted in for over 4 weeks can be considered dead (unless stated not to be with the OP or last post). Necroing is considered bad form, but is not specifically against forum rules. Please only necro if it is necessary, continual necroing is considered spam which is against guidelines.
This forum does not condone
-double posting (unless this is explicity allowed in the rules of some threads).
-Excessive use of smilies.
-Use of text or 1337 speak.
-Overuse of CAPS, this is considered to be shouting.
We keep full rights to change and/OR edit any of the above statements and rules, that apply to every single member of the forum.
These words are outright banned from our forum. Deal with their use and bypassing as if they were flaming, spamming or trolling.
Bastard and derivatives.
Fuck and derivatives.
Cunt and derivatives.
Shit and derivatives.
Piss and derivatives.
Asshole and derivatives
Although not banned outright, they are OK in moderation and when in context.
crap and derivatives.
Pornography and derivatives. Mainly because of what the subject may lead to.
Bitch is obviously acceptable when talking about a female dog.
Butt (partly because it is a surname)
Damn and derivatives.
NB: None of the words are Censored in the chatbox, so if you see them used, those in red are an immediate warning, followed by kicking and banning for consistent use.
