PostSubject: Forum Rules   Mon Mar 16, 2009 12:55 am

These forums are intended to provide a warm, friendly atmosphere for all members to enjoy. In order to maintain order and a sense of community, all users should read and follow these conditions. By participating in the forum, users are affirming their willingness to comply with these terms. This memorandum has been created to provide you with information about what you can expect here, what is expected of you, and to answer some questions you may have in your use of the MovieMadnessForum.

1. MovieMadnessForum is aimed at a general audience.
This means our site is designed for people aged around 13 year olds and older. Everything must be aimed at this age and older. Explicit, vulgar language, Discussion of Drugs, nudity, pornography and so forth is not allowed.

2. Be respectful of others at all times.
Occasionally, there will be conflicts that arise when people voice opinions. Be courteous when disagreeing with others. It is possible to disagree without being insulting.

3. Personal attacks are prohibited.
Commonly known as flaming, personal attacks are posts which are designed to personally berate or insult another. This is not beneficial to the community spirit and will not be tolerated.

4. No posting of personal information.
Please respect the privacy of others and do not give out information such as phone numbers and addresses.

5. Private communication between Moderators and Administrators of the forum and the forum users is not to be made public on these forums or by any other venue.
You are not permitted to publicize any private correspondence (including MSN conversations) received from any of the aforementioned.

6. Warnings and bans are not to be discussed on the forum.
Such matters shall remain private between The Management team and the user. Questions or comments concerning warnings and bans will be conveyed through e-mail or private messaging. Likewise, discussions regarding moderator actions are not permitted on the forum.

7. Immediate banning from the forum can result from any of the following:
The posting of pornography; discriminatory remarks which are sexually explicit, harmful, threatening, abusive, defamatory, obscene, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive; excessive obscene or vulgar language; posts which discuss or illustrate illegal activity; providing links to sites that contain any of the aforementioned.

8. Redundant threads will be deleted.
As a courtesy to others before beginning a new thread, please look to see if an active thread on that topic has already been established. If so, place your comments there instead. Multiple threads on the same subject clutter up the forum needlessly and many good ideas may be lost. Keep discussions about one topic to one thread only.

9. Avoid using profanity (bad language, swearing etc.)
The use of swearing and bad language will not be tolerated on the forum. In addition to this, using partial masking (such as asterisks or punctuation marks) to bypass the profanity filter is prohibited and will result in the same action as if the actual word had been typed. Abbreviations such as 'ffs' and 'wtf' are also not tolerated and will be treated the same as using swear words.

10. Post constructively.
Negative feedback can be very useful, provided that it is presented in a civil, factual manner. Tell us what you don't like and why and how you feel it could be improved. Posts that are insulting and rude may be deleted, no matter how valid the ideas behind them may be.

11. All threads must contain a full description.
This stops people getting confused as to what you are talking about as a full description should let people know what the thread is all about.

12. Threads must be submitted to the relevant forums. Please read the forum descriptions before posting.

13. Thread titles must be descriptive.
The topic title must be descriptive, and it should leave people in no doubt as to what the thread is about.

14. No bumping old topics
No posting in topics that haven't been posted in for more than a month, unless you get permission from an Admin or Moderator first. This applies even if you are the author of that thread.

15. No Multiple Accounts
You are only allowed one account, so if you make a second account while your first account is still active or if you have been banned once already and you make a new account you are breaking the rules that you agreed to abide by when you joined the forum. Under special circumstances, such as your brother or sister joining the forum, multiple accounts are allowed with permission of an Admin. You must PM us to say that your brother or sister has joined the forum as soon as they sign up.

16. No unsuitable images in avatars and sigs
The forum is aimed at all ages. Sigs which stretch the forum template will be removed without notice.

17. Advertising rules
You are allowed to post links on the forum as long as they are relevant to the thread you are posting them in. If you want to post links to personal forums or web sites then use the 'Links' sectio. Linking back to this forum is required (see 'Links' section for details).

18. PM rules
The private messaging system is there so members can talk privately to each other. Anyone found abusing it will receive a warning. Anyone sending other members links to forums & websites without the other members requesting them will be warned as this is classed as spamming.

19. Content of posts should not be explicit, offensive, shocking etc.
Content which is inhumane or unethical to be viewed by ages below 13 years old is not allowed. Disallowed discussion topics include, but are not limited to, hacking, fraud, drugs, pornography and political/religious discussions even if educational.

20. No topic hijacking (going off topic).
Only make posts which are relavent to the thread you are posting in, and don't start off-topic disscusions with other members about unrelated subjects.

21. Removal of moderated messages is not allowed.
If an Admin or a Mod edits your post with a message or changes something, you are not allowed to edit this out.


22. Excessively replying to your own topics to gain first page exposure is not allowed.
You are not permitted to continually 'bump'/post in your own threads just to get them on to the first page. Replies such as 'You're welcome', 'no problem', 'thanks for replies' or similar are only allowed a maximum of twice per page.

23. No Spamming

Spamming includes, but is not limited to, the following things:

23.1 - You may only promote your website once. You are only allowed one thread promoting your site and it has to be posted in the 'Links' section.
If you choose to post a link it should benefit everyone and must not be a site of the following categories: Referrals, Hollyoaks forums, sites that require a fee to access.

23.2 - If a thread is locked and another similar topic with the same plot is posted again, the newly created topic will also be locked. This rule also applies if the other thread is still open for posting.

23.3 - Excessive posting of similar messages to increase post count is not allowed.

23.4 - The following one-liner messages are classified as spam:

Any acronym such as lol.
The use of an emoticon only reply.

23.5 - No double posting in threads. Use the edit button when altering your reply if you're the last to post in the topic.

24. All usernames should not exceed 15 characters, and may not refer to an email or any web site.
Use good taste and judgement here.

Final Guidelines:

Sticky Requests: Please do not request a post to be stickied. If there is room to sticky an exceptional post, we will do so; however, there is only room for six stickies per forum. Topics which use a poll to petition a sticky are not allowed.

Asking any staff member if you can be a part of the staff will hinder your chance of ever becoming one. The same applies for VIP as well.

All forum rules apply to every image posted in messages, signatures, avatars and PM’s.
Images must not contain URL's of websites, words that bypass our word censor.

------------------------------------------------------------

Members who disobey the rules will be warned or banned depending on what the moderator believes is the appropriate punishment.

Members can be warned a maximum of three times. On the third, the member will be immediately banned. This does not mean that you have to have a warning to get banned, moderators may ban you without warnings depending on the offense.

If you believe you do not deserve the warning please contact an admin. Talking back to the moderator who gave you the warning with no sense of respect will lead to further warnings.

Rules may be changed at any time at the descretion of The Management. Please abide by these rules and we won't have any problems.

Thanks,

The Management :D
