The Official TXW1 Forum Rules [Redux #1]

Post by Toadette on November 25th 2012, 6:42 pm

Yes, I was forced to re-edit the forum rules. Well, not in Golden Rule fashion. But basically I re-edit the rules for more clarification and it will be much easier to read to everyone. Anyways...

The Introduction (The Basic Member Guidelines)
Hello to all new registered Members of the forums! Welcome to TheXWalkthrough1 Forums! A small community forumbase (Well maybe someday a standard community) that is where you can discuss, chat, post/reply, and tell your Walkthroughs, Let's Plays, or Playthroughs to other members all to right here!

You know that every forum has a rule? Right? Well obviously yes, and here are the official site rules and procedures for TheXWalkthrough1 Forums. If any member refuse or disobey to read all of the Forum Rules will may result an Permanent Ban. In the other hand, if you break a rule of the forums. You will receive a certain number of Infraction Points directly to your profile. These Infraction Points only expire for every 3 months. For more information about the Infraction Points, please read "The Infraction Point System Guidelines" for more details.

Again, If you have any questions regarding to the rules or any serious problem, don't hesitate to contact the Head Administrators of the TheXWalkthrough1 Forums. (TheXWalkthrough1, or myself Pokey)


The Official TXW1 Forum Rules
The Latest Rules Updated: December 5, 2012

Rule 1. Everyone should be encouraged to be nice to your fellow members of the forums.
Notice #1: This also goes for the TXW1 staff.
Notice #2: Discrimination, Racism and Sexism are also part to this rule too.

Spoiler:
You should not be threaten, harass or insult your fellow members, or personal attacks against any of them. Please respect the beliefs of other members. If someone acts uncivil, or harasses/intimidates you, you are not given the excuse to act the same in retaliation. Discrimination against member's age, sex, race, religion, social status, etc. is unacceptable too. If you disagree with the conduct of other members, please contact any TXW1 Staff Member.

Breaking this rule:
- If you discriminate against the member's age, sex, race, religion, social status, etc. :
Receives 50 Infraction Points
- For other reasons. (like just being disrespectful to another member.):
Receives 5, 10 or 20 Infraction Points


Rule 2. Do not Spam
Notice: This rule does not include in the General Spam Section.

Spoiler:
Don’t post Stupid Pointless Annoying Messages - this includes meaningless posts/or threads, or posts/or threads with no relevance to the thread. Such posts often do not add anything to a thread, or the topic thread itself will be deleted by the TXW1 Staff.

You will trigger an alert "Spam" by these qualifications.

1. Posting excessive amount and repeating the same random Words, Numbers, Punctuation Marks, etc.

Meaning? - It when a member say/reply something random or your post is not relative, meaning which it doesn't relates to the topic at all.
7. Duplicated Threads
Meaning? - A new thread + A Similar and an old thread = A Duplicated Thread
8. Pointless or Irrelevant Post/Thread
Meaning? - Self Explanatory. A post that has no meaning or that we feel it's pointless to PM, or posting random words. These can be refer to all other 7 Spam Qualifications.

Breaking this rule:
Receives 5 Infraction Points


Rule 3. No Trolling

Spoiler:
Inflammatory or irrelevant messages with the sole intent of provoking other users or inciting controversy or excessively breaking the forum rules is considered "trolling". We consider trolling to be unacceptable as it undermines the friendly environment that we aim for. A simple break of this rule will may result an Permanent Ban or I.P. Ban. This forum had some trolling incidents in the past of our history of the forums, and were not gonna have this same kind of issue over and over in the future.

Breaking this rule:
Permanent Ban or I.P. Ban


Rule 4. Swearing is allowed but don't over say it too much.
Notice: Swearing is also relates like cussing, vulgar, profanity, and foul/or inappropriate language.

Spoiler:
Although this is an all ages forum. You may swear the forums boards since the forums has a censor system. The censor system blocks any swear words for some members that doesn't really want to see a swear word. However, please don't make an habit to swear constantly, also please don't swear directly against to another member, or don't even outrageously swear to everyone as well.

Unless if you really need to swear, please use the rightful ***asterisks***. Again, if you really need to swear. I would recommend you to asterisk EVERYTHING depending how many letters from that swear word.
But we also accept these kind of asterisk swear type words, as like for these examples.
F***, F**k, S*** , or F*g

Oh yeah, one more thing. There are some other Swear Words are not have yet censored. So, that means they are acceptable minor swear words in this forum. This includes to the chatbox as well. However, please don't use these words like to say directly against to another member, or to everyone in here. Like being said, here are the following acceptable minor swear words that is allowed to use in the forums.
Ass, Damn, Hell, and Bastard

Breaking this rule:
Receives 10 Infraction Points


Rule 5. Inappropriate Content is not allowed
Notice: This rule also includes your avatars and your signatures too.

Spoiler:
The forums does NOT accept any inappropriate content like Adult Content such as like pornography, sexual content, or obscene (something like if the image/link is yuck, or eww) from an image, a link, or even a video! Likewise, this is an all ages forum, and deliberately posting too inappropriate content will lead to receiving more Infraction Points.

Breaking this rule:
Receives 10 or 30 Infraction Points


Rule 6. No illegal Material

Spoiler:
Please also note. You may discuss about the Emulators itself, TV shows, video games (Roms and Rom hacks), music, or software are acceptable for the time being. However, you may not discuss how to obtain these materials (download links) or link to sites that contain these materials.

Breaking this rule:
Receives 20 or 30 Infraction Points


Rule 7. Advertising is prohibited

Spoiler:
You can post any link (like Youtube, etc.) whatever that relates to topic. However, the forums doesn't allow any member to advertise your forums, any other forums, site, or anything that is involves joining/registering from a link. It's pretty simple rule really. Just don't be an advertiser. If the new registered Members are found to be joining the forum for the purpose of advertising may be Permanently Banned.

Breaking this rule:
- For the active/or existing members:
Receives 10 Infraction Points
- Joining to advertise:
Permanent Ban or I.P. Ban


Rule 8. Multiple/Double Accounts is prohibited.

Spoiler:
For existing members: Unless you have a good valid reason (forgetting your password, etc.). Then were okay with that, but we have to ban your first account for safety measures. In the other hand, your 2nd Account will be deleted AND your original account will receive Infraction Points. Unless, if you really want to request a username change. Then, please click right here. Again, you don't need multiple accounts. Only just stick to your original account. It's simple as that.

If you didn't realized this. The TXW1 Staff can determine if you using another account by looking your I.P.'s to see if you made another account with the same I.P. address to your original account.

Overall, Double accounts is still unacceptable. Especially for the user's original account was Temporarily Banned or Suspended or even Permanently banned. Please don't even bypass your ban by creating another account. Serious punishments will more likely result an I.P. Banned or Permanently Banned.

Breaking this rule:
- For the active/or existing members:
Your 2nd Account will be deleted and receives 50 Infraction Points

- Bypassing your Ban (Again, your 2nd Account will be deleted as the following):
--- If your original account was still in Suspension/Temporarily ban mode:
Your Suspension/Temp Ban mode will have extension for additional 2 more weeks.
--- If your original account was Permanently Banned:
More likely an I.P. Ban or Permanent Ban


Rule 9. Don't bump any (old) threads that hasn't replied over 2 Months.
Notice #1: This rule does not include for the TXW1 Staff.
Notice #2: This rule does not include to threads that have Sticky, or Announcement threads.

Spoiler:
I'll say this again. Bumping any old threads that hasn't replied like OVER 2 MONTHS is unacceptable. Like for instance. If a member reply a thread that hasn't replied since August 1, 2012. Then a member replied a thread in a day of October 1, 2012 is considering bumping a thread. Some users doesn't like threads that are revived even me. However, there is only one solution to solve this bumping issue.

The only Solution?

The TXW1 Staff has the rights to revive threads that hasn't replied over 2 Months. If you want a thread to be revived (or bumped), then feel free to contact any TXW1 Staff member! They just simply reply and revive a 2 month thread that you've requested for.

Breaking this rule:
Receives 5 Infraction Points


Rule 10. No Mini-Modding

Spoiler:
Self explanatory. We really appreciative for helping us to stop these rule breakers. However, please refrain it by using the Report button or contact a TXW1 Staff Member. Instead of you posting something directly to another user that broke a rule or some other reasons. Likewise, YOU the members are NOT the Staff members of the forums, AND please let the TXW1 Staff do our jobs. We'll handle this for you.

Breaking this rule:
Receives 5 Infraction Points






Reminder about your Infraction Points Bar

If your Infraction Points Bar has..........

70 Points - 2 Week Suspension/Temporarily Forum Ban
90 Points - 1 Month Suspension/Temporarily Forum Ban
100 Points - Permanent Ban


Again. For more information about the Infraction Points itself, please read "The Infraction Point System Guidelines" for more details.
