I want to keep things around here fairly relaxed, so there's not going to be a lot of nazi moderating going on. However, there are a few simple rules I ask you to follow:
1) No racism. None. Someone joined recently and used a racial slur against someone on their very first post. They're banned now.
2) No personal attacks. If you don't get along with someone, don't post in their threads. If you disagree with somebody, you can argue with them, but keep it civil.
3) Use NWS tags when needed. I don't care if people post pics of girls, nude or otherwise, in Off-Topic, but make sure you include NWS (Not Work Safe) in the thread title. This goes for anything that is not safe to view at work or around family members -- Nudity, songs/videos that swear, etc. Also, please refrain from posting too much NWS stuff. If this gets out of hand we'll have to just ban all NWS content and we don't want to do that.
4) Don't whine if your posts get deleted or edited. If you follow the 3 simple rules listed above, we'll all get along wonderfully and none of your posts will be deleted/edited. If they ARE deleted or edited, a note will be left in the original post informing you why.
5)DON'T POST OR TITLE THREADS IN ALL CAPS. It's really annoying and it doesn't call anymore attention to your thread than normal capitalization. Also, please don't use a bunch of un-needed punctuation in your thread titles such as "This!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" One exclamation point is enough. We get it, you're excited.
People breaking the rules are subject to banning with or without prior warnings and are solely up to my discretion.
Thanks for taking a second to read the rules. Remember, they are in place to make sure everyone has a good time. I hope you enjoy posting here and hope raptorforum.com grows into a large community!
