Official Forum Rules and Guidelines

Post by MegBot3000 »

Rules and Guidelines for use of the forum:

1. Topics and posts are to remain of general interest to the collecting membership. Other topics belong in the Jumble Jumble subforum at the discretion of the Moderators.

2. Unnecessary, unwanted, and/or nonsense posts will be removed at the discretion of the Moderators wherein it is felt that it is in the best interest of the community going forward. No explanation will be necessary and none will be offered, so don't expect one.

3. Members who do not adhere to 1, 2, and 4, or post inflammatory remarks that detract from the spirit of the community, will be banned according to the following guidelines:

In general, but not strictly,
First offence - Formal Warning
Second offence - 48 hour ban
Third offence - 7 day ban
Fourth offence -permanent ban, subject to discussion with the Moderators

4. Members are permitted one account on the forum. Any violation found will be considered an offence.

5. White Swirl wishes to be clear with all of our members that harassment of other members via White Swirl will be met with zero tolerance at the discretion of the moderators. We strive to be a community where people are treated fairly and with respect.

PLEASE NOTE: To inform a Moderator of a post that you feel warrants review, use the the exclamation point <!> button ("Report this post") in the top right corner of the post. Repeated unnecessary or excessive use of this "Report" button will absolutely not be tolerated and will be considered an offence.
WhiteSwirl takes no responsibility for MegBot malfunctions.

Well after more than 3 years, it has finally become necessary to officially start knocking heads around here. Keep it clean and no one gets hurt. ;)

Based on this I have a vision of getting perma-banned eventually.

Retroactively you're just 2 away from a perma-ban already.

All I can say is I am proud of the moderator group being led on this one by our one and only 7th_son.
Keep it up and we'll get back to where we were and what we want to be.

Few odds & ends...
Hawke... might want to create a few extra accounts now and go ahead and establish alter egos. That way at least some part of you can survive.
Dude... be careful...
Everyone else, either I think you are doing great and belong here or I've written you off and you should be gone. I'll leave that up to you.
And finally, I'm not in power here so the things I just said don't mean squat.

I might as well get it over with.

I'll also be sure to include cover sheets on all of my TPS reports from now on as well.

The odds line would have had you high on the list but it seems maybe you have changed your evil ways :-)

Those rules sound fair to me. I hope the mods dont have to deal with a lot of drama. Good luck.
