  • A simple list of forum rules

    OK, it was suggested that we make an actual set of forum rules so that we can BAN WITHOUT REMORSE.... ahem. I mean, so we can keep things clear.

    anyways, here's a first draft. Any ideas and comments are welcome. Mods and Admins, anything you want to add feel free.


    ************************************************** ****


    All of these things, if it's me doing the reading, will result in an edit and a warning on a first offense, and an edit and a BAND on a second (unless i'm feeling particularly generous, obv). If you see someone breaking these rules, feel free to PM me, Dalai, or one of the other mods. These rules are forum wide, so don't think you can sneak into the Tech forum and call someone a dipshit and get away with it. 8) Without further ado - let's call them the "10 Rules of Not Being BAND"


    1. We abide by the word of the law, not the letter - knowingly attempting to "bend" the rules is not permitted.

    2. Abuse targetted at users is not permitted.

    3. Images that you wouldn't want your boss to see you looking at while you're at work are not permitted.

    4. The distribution of warez is not permitted.

    5. Slander and intolerance in any serious capacity is not permitted. The mods decide what is "serious" based on their opinions and the opinions of other members of the board.

    6. There is no rule against language. No words are censored, and no swear words you use will be editted, unless they violate rule #2.

    7. Image leeching is frowned upon. Large sites can handle the bandwidth increase, small sites cannot. Image leeching from sites with protective code (www.SomethingAwful.com comes to mind) is not permitted and will result in a ban.

    8. If you are asked by a mod or an admin to stop doing something, even if you think it is NOT a violation of the rules, the clever thing to do is to stop. If you continue on, you are the only one responsible for what happens. If a mod or admin locks a thread you've made, do NOT open a second with the same content, or asking why your last one was closed. There are PMs for such things. Posting a second, identical thread is spam, which brings us to...

    9. Spamming (on this board: posting multiple messages of identical, useless content; posting many messages of little or no content in rapid time; posting multiple identical or useless threads or posting the same thread in multiple forums) is not allowed. Reposting a known bug or technical issue in the appropriate forum, while frowned upon (and grounds for you to be made fun of), does not fall under "spam".

    10. Be excellent to each other and party on, dudes.
    I'm not so bad... Once you get to know me.

              I don't know, but I wouldn't be surprised if it showed that picture from that goatsex site(deliberately misspelled).

                Maby you could add the week ban

                If you have violated one rule, the first time you get banned for one week.
                Do it again and your banned for 2 weeks.
                But the third time = perm ban always.

                Maby remove the 2 weeks ban, but still. Banning is a very good warning

                  let's clarify something-- since these rules seem to be forum-wide, not just for certain boards

                  because, Thwark, under your current definition of spam, i might have been BAND for suggesting in the suggestions forum that we should be able to KO guards and hide bodies, and then guards should wake up. as i remember, LewdAzMe did a thread on the same subject the day prior to mine. so... unintentional SUGGESTION or bug report spam = okay? pls? kthxbi

                  and my next band is gonna be *sigh*BAND.. with our first single "ode to thwark"
                  ...
                  nobody's gonna have a CLUE what we mean when we KO them with our song
                  Gotta knock a little harder
                  Gotta knock a little harder
                  Gotta knock a little harder
                  Break through the door

                      3. Images that you wouldn't want your boss to see you looking at while you're at work are not permitted.
                      Just a (stupid?) question. Say we get a guy working for i e Playboy, would this mean he'd be allowed to post anything?

                      In order to make it watertight, maybe modify specifying what is not allowed, i e porn and a definition of what this is, i e a chick using a coke for a dildo relative to a model in bikini.

                      Would this include some of my recipies such as how to make napalm?

                      7. Image leeching is frowned upon. Large sites can handle the bandwidth increase, small sites cannot. Image leeching from sites with protective code (www.SomethingAwful.com comes to mind) is not permitted and will result in a ban.
                      How can we do this? There's no upload, and I wont post any pics if I have to re-upload them to a crappy Geoshitties (tm) account.

                        Rule #1 is that we work by the word of the law not the letter. If someone posted something inappropriate, saying "omg, i'm unemployed!" or "omg, i work at Hustler", it'll be a ban. That's trying to bend a rule. I don't want to have to write a thesis about what IS porn. I hope people can use a bit of common sense here. I'm certain that most people of reasonable intelligence know what's inappropriate for work and what isn't.

                        you have to re-upload them to your own webspace. I do it, you can do it.

                              I see the bending rules override it, ok... but if we do not know about where the the line of porn is, will we be band before getting a remark? I just mean the edge, like posting said models in bikinis. Hmm...

                              Oh well.

                              I do not like having to spend first five minutes logging in on Geoshitties, then ten minutes uploading my pic just to show you something.
                              Result: no more pics until I get at least DSL :x :x :x :x
