The NSMBX Forum Rules

PostPosted by Magician » Sun Nov 02, 2014 2:23 am

Please read the following before you post: (Highlights are for the "too long; didn't read" crowd, but I do recommend reading the whole thing.)

    1. While engaging in debates and discussion is fine, we will not tolerate rudeness, excessive profanity, insulting posts, personal attacks (including racial or sexist remarks) or purposeless inflammatory and offensive posts. Essentially, use common sense in what you post anywhere on these forums. The Moderation and Administration Staff will have the final say as to what material is appropriate. We do not allow users to remove offensive posts without notice.

    2. Please refrain from posting meaningless or nonsensical threads or posts. All posts should have something relevant to contribute to the thread. Original posters in each thread will have permission to ask, in general terms, for people to remain on topic in their original post, and will be encouraged to report posts that do not respect this. If you want this rule to be enforced more directly in your thread, please say so in your original post.
    - While the expectation that "all posts should have something relevant to contribute" (as seen above) will be generally encouraged, we will be more strict when dealing with posts of little or no constructive contribution in particular when they are reviving a thread that has not been posted in for several days, or if this behaviour is repeated across multiple threads.

    3. Multiple or repeated posting is not allowed, especially for the sake of merely increasing your post count. Multiple posting is only allowed when the creator of the thread or topic has an update or other new development to post about. If you want to add more to something you already said and no one has replied yet, use the Edit button. Threads that are being spammed in will be locked temporarily for as long as we deem necessary and the spammers will be dealt with.

    4. Advertising is not allowed. This includes the use of forum threads, our private messaging system or email (when done through these forums). Advertising websites, forums or products (whether they were made/ created by the user or not) should not be posted on these forums UNLESS it is a website, forum or other product that relates to the topic of discussion in that thread. We do not allow people to post threads or to send private messages or emails to users here that advertise or solicit any products, services, funds or donations. You are otherwise allowed to advertise a single link to your own forum or website in your forum signature. There is also a place for this to be done in your user profile as well.

    5. All material posted on these forums must be appropriate. Do not post any explicit sexual material (including pornography) or any other illegal material. We also do not allow posts or links to sites that are sexual in nature or violate community standards. Discussion of illegal activities such as software and music piracy and other intellectual property violations are not allowed. Do not post any download links to Super Mario Brothers X. If you want to post text-based content that may be unsuitable for some people, please use content warnings and spoiler tags. Under no circumstances can this be done for images.

    6. Each member is allowed one login account. Registering with multiple accounts is not allowed. Having multiple accounts will result in the permanent banning of that user and their accounts. Accounts made with fake or disposable emails and/or proxies will be deactivated.

    7. These forums are English only. If you are going to post non-English on these forums, please also post an English Translation of your post.

    8. Avatars and signatures will not be allowed to contain images with bright flashes. Signatures can contain forum-appropriate images and userbars as long as those images and userbars are not excessively large. Signatures that have large images should have a functional purpose for each image other than just their appearance. Those large images must be inserted into a spoiler tag. Please also avoid using signatures that are significantly taller than most of your posts.

    9. Please do not act as backseat moderators. If you see anything on these forums that violates any of these rules, please use the report button. Responding directly will only contribute to the problem.

    10. Do not steal (as in claim as your own) any content made by other people. This applies to any content made by users, such as images, videos, music, or games.

    11. Please refrain from making quote pyramids. They are redundant, and they stretch the page. Please also avoid quoting entire posts if they will appear directly above yours.

    12. Do not post private information about any user without their explicit consent.

    13. These are the main rules, but make sure to also read and abide by any rules posted in other areas of the forum when posting in those areas. They will be visible as announcements when viewing that forum.

    14. While these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way. We also reserve the right to ban anyone who willfully violates the forum rules, as access to our forums is privilege and not a right.

Any of these rules may be added to, deleted or modified at any time by the forum staff if we deem a change necessary. By being a member of this forum you agree to follow these rules and accept the consequences of not following them. If any member feels that a member of the forum staff has made an inaccurate judgment or inappropriate action, please notify XerX, Pseudo-dino, or Magician of this immediately. All forum staff have to follow the same rules as normal members. Just because forum staff have special permissions and abilities, it does not entitle them to break these rules.
