    Rules [You Will Be Punished Even If You Dont Read Them]

    Post  Gti on Tue Dec 16, 2008 9:48 am

    Each rule is listed below, along with examples of possible offenses. They are followed by some related questions and answers to help you understand the rule and its effects.

    The following guidelines are not all-inclusive and may not address all manner of inappropriate behavior. Please remember that you must always treat others with the same respect and courtesy you would wish to receive.

    RULE 1: Inappropriate behavior/content.

    No racism of any sort also no misleading links or pornographic material here. (Just treat people with respect, it shows you are a sensible and mature person.)

    Examples:

    • Spamming is a pointless message that offers no room for discussion, or disrupts the forum community. Spam posts/threads waste both Members and moderator's time, and therefore will not be tolerated. This means there will not be any unnecessary posts just to reach a certain amount of posts nor get another post count based rank. Use common sense in your posts. E.g, post topics in the right section, don't get off topic.

    Thread Hijacking is not allowed. This goes also with don't get off topic. Thread hijacking will get you an infraction. ALWAYS check if you're in the right section when posting a thread, you might be posting in the wrong section.

    • Flaming is the act of maliciously insulting or provoking another user. Going out of your way to be deliberately hurtful or offensive is something that will not be tolerated. Flaming is a serious attack on another user and is highly damaging to the community. Also no religious comments. (Prejudice to Jewish people etc.)


    RULE 2: Password Scamming

    Do not deceive, or attempt to deceive another member into giving you their Account password

    This type of malicious behavior will not be tolerated at any level, and will be dealt with extremely.


    RULE 3: Impersonation

    You must not impersonate, or attempt to impersonate a Moderator of any kind.

    We have this rule in place so that players who require help or advice can be sure it is coming from an appropriate source not a false one.

    • All Forum Administrators have a Golden crown next to their name with an A on it for Administrator.
    • All Forum Moderators have a silver crown next to their name with an M on it for Moderator.


    Backseat Moderation.

    Attempting to act like a Moderator on the Forums is inappropriate. While your intentions may be good, you will only provoke arguments and flaming due to your lack of actual Forum Mod status If you come across something severe that requires a forum moderators immediate attention then report to the general Help section.


    Asking for positions

    You cannot ask for staff positions. Why do we have this rule?

    Positions are earned they are not prizes. The people who have a staff position got it for a reason. You cannot ask for staff positions doing so will result in an infraction. We have this rule because we understand many of you wish to be apart of our staff, but we are too busy to be having members ask for positions. If you are being a positive help, then we will come to you. There is no need to come to us.


    RULE 4: Advertising/Websites

    You are not allowed to actively advertise websites in the Forums.

    You are not allowed to actively advertise websites in the Forums. This includes advertising any product or website. This includes naming, and general direction to a website

    Why we have this rule? We only do this so as to protect people from being lured into a trick site. Many sites are deliberately designed to steal account details or infect players' computers with Keyloggers, Trojans, Viruses or other malicious software.


    RULE 5: Account Sharing/Trading

    You may not share your Forum account with anybody else nor permit anyone else to use your account, and you may not accept a forum account that anybody else offers you.


    RULE 6: Multiple Logging-In

    You may not use multiple accounts to give yourself an advantage over others.

    We have this rule to maintain a fair Forum Experience. We don’t want our forums to become forum where everyone feels they need to make multiple accounts. For example if someone has more then one account on the forums the users gain an unfair advantage in polls and other activities.


    RULE 7: Encouraging Others to Break Rules

    You may not encourage others to break any of the rules.

    Examples of encouraging others to break any of the rules include:

    ● Convincing other players that the rules are different to what they actually are.
    ● Flaming other players (trying to get a reaction from other players by using offensive language against them.)
    ● Posting to say that you've broken a rule and got away with it.
    ● Anything which promotes rule breaking in a positive manner.


    RULE 8: Misuse of Official Forums

    You must not misuse the Forums, or harass/abuse any Moderator for their actions.

    You must not misuse the forums. Although we aim for a fun and friendly atmosphere, you must remember that the main purpose of the forums is for players to communicate with one another in a safe and secure environment.

    This includes the harassment of Moderators, as using the forums to attack them is not what it is for. This type of behavior will not be tolerated in the slightest.

    This is because a Moderators actions are limited by True-Pkz staff and any action they take against a player on the Forums is due to strict True-Pkz guidelines.

    What about my freedom of speech?

    Since True-Pkz operates these public forums for members, the staff reserves the right to decide what may or may not be posted.

    This is not a breach of your freedom of speech; it is simply to protect all players from content which they might find offensive or inappropriate. Remember that our games are enjoyed by players of many ages and nationalities; please respect that others may not have the same point of view as you do.


    Rule 9: Respect Staff members

    A Moderator's decision is final. No if's,and's, or but's. (Respect Moderator's. Simple enough)

    They are not idols to make fun of, they run the forum and garner your respect. If you do have a problem with a moderator, take it up with an admin.

    You are responsible even if you didn't read the rules.
