Whoosh! Forum Rules
« Original Thread Started on July 10, 2007, 5:04pm »
# 01: Police Yourself.
- If you don't, I will.
And if _I_ do it, you could end up banned, and your account deleted.
(No warning; no reason given.)
# 02: Member Disputes
- Take them to PM or Email. Keep them off of the boards. Thanks.
# 03: Ignore Trolls.
- Do NOT converse with them or acknowledge them in any way. -- You can't set them straight, so don't even try. If they cared, or had any feelings, they wouldn't be trolls.
Trolls NEED attention, and the best way to irritate them is to pretend they aren't there.
# 04: When a thread reaches 1500 posts, (101 pages), start a new thread.
- Wait and let the original member start the new thread, or start it yourself.
# 05: When using other languages, post a translation in English.
- It seems Proboards now allows other languages to be used, however there is no one here to Mod other languages. Therefore, a translation is needed. Any complaint will get the passage/s snipped. There's no way to tell if the complaint is valid, so a deletion is the only course. If you want to chat in another language, do so through PM, eMail, or on another forum. Thanks.
# 06: Multiple accounts are okay as long as they aren't used to cause trouble.
- I would prefer that members who create multiple accounts inform me of the fact. If any account is used to spam/troll or divide the membership, all accounts will be deleted.
# 07: Main-Text, Sub-Text, Shipper-Text are all valid viewpoints.
- All viewpoints are valid, whether or not there is proof to back it up. No member can trash or flame the viewpoints of others. No member can force their view onto another member. You can state why you see the relationship the way you do, but not that everyone must see it that way. Share or leave the forum.
# 08: DO NOT use pornographic language or post pornographic images or post links to porn sites/images.
- Discussions and links must be PG-13 / TV-14. Adult discussions and links must go on the Whoosh! Runboard Board.
# 09: Hissy Fits WILL NOT be tolerated.
- If you have a problem with the board, or any member/s, bring it to my attention, take it off board, or let it go. If you cause a scene your membership will be banned &/or deleted. The ban and deletion can be permanent, and most likely will be. If you manage to sneak back in, you had better play nice. Not playing nice will get your membership deleted again ... and again ... and again. Such behavior WILL NOT be tolerated, AT ALL.
# 10: No Outside Board/Forum Business.
- If you have a problem with another board/forum do not bring it here. If you do, your membership will be banned & deleted. Such behavior WILL NOT be tolerated, AT ALL.
# 11: Do NOT follow trolls here from another board/forum.
- If you follow trolls here from another board/forum to 'help out,' your membership will be banned & deleted. I don't know you, or if you're really here to help out. You could be in on the trolling, and are here as a spy. Just stay out of it. You aren't part of the staff here, nor a member in good standing, so your input is not wanted/needed.
Members can either PM me or start a thread on the Feedback & Complaints board to alert me to problems with another member, or to a post that needs to be deleted. Thanks.
