Rules - MUST READ AND FOLLOW!

Post  Whisperingtruth on Sat May 07, 2011 2:55 am

SimRelations Forum Rules

First of all Kayyield and Whisperingtruth, the SimRelations administration team would like to welcome you. This is a forum for all Simmers alike. We are not judgmental here and would love for you to be open and free to chat about things, but like all places on the internet, rules must be placed and followed. While these rules cover most common situations they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently, we reserve the right to take any action(s) we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way.

Read and understand the General Site and Forum Rules before posting on the Forum. The rules are here for you to read, so there is no excuse to feign ignorance when a warning is issued.

Know where to seek Help with using the site
Please don't post just anywhere if you need help. There are proper places for this.

If you need help with something on the site, you may (in the following order):
• Use the appropriate Help section
• Private Message a staff member (Kayyield)
• Contact simsrelations@gmail.com

Thou Shall Accept the Administrators Decisions.
We reserve the right to edit any part of a post, member profile, ban members (temporarily or permanently) and other miscellaneous actions required to keep the forum in order. We want to make this a fun and friendly place, but we still have to keep it running smoothly.


GENERAL RULES


1. Report all errors/bugs/glitches/exploits/flaws with the site to the mods/admins
We are here to help things run smoothly. If it is broken and we dont know about it, we cannot fix it. You will not get in trouble for not telling us, however if you exploit a flaw with the site instead of telling a moderator about it, you will be banned.

2. Don't force the forum rules down someone else's throat.
If you believe it needs pointing out, take it to PM or notify a moderator. Quoting the rules in public is unnecessarily embarrassing for the author of the post in question. If someone breaks the rules report it to a moderator and be on your way. Don't make it into a personal issue by arguing with them.

3. Generally, be respectful in tone and attitude:
• Do not yell, i.e. type in all caps.
• Do not call people names, insult people, or be racist; you will be banned if you do so
• Internet tone is easy to misinterpret, be careful how you word things. And if you read a post that may seem unfriendly/rude, give that person the benefit of doubt (unless that person does it multiple times, then bring it to a moderator’s attention privately).

4. This forum has a PG-13 rating:
• Please try to keep sexual innuendo to a minimum. This forum does not disallow it, but occasionally, such things get out of hand.
• Do not talk about drugs, or illegal activities, this will result in a permanent ban
• Saying you are going to have a drink after a long day is fine, but talking about getting wasted and having drunken parties is not appropriate.




Membership

1. Have an appropriate Avatar
Come on everyone. We all know what is appropriate and what isnt. Imagination is key so please do not steal others avatars.

2. Membership Ranking
When your account is first approved and you have less then 20 posts, you will have the ranking status of SimsRelations Newbie Sim. When you hit 20 posts you will the be moved up to SimsRelations Member Sim. The rankings do not have any difference in privleges. They are just so that members are aware of new people and can help the new members feel welcome.

3. Only ONE membership account per person
Having more then one account here on the forums is not allowed. Those caught having more then one account will have both accounts deleted and will be blocked from the site. If any attempts are made to make a second account it will not be approved and a warning will be given.


THREAD CREATION/MAINTAINING

1. Post your threads in the appropriate categories.
Think about where your thread best fits in the forum before posting. Make sure to use the correct sub-forum and check to see if your thread has already been made in the past because duplicates (or very similar topics) will be removed without question. Nobody will kick you if you get it wrong, but it saves your thread from being overlooked or removed.

2. Make the First Post clear and complete
If you're going to start a topic, back it up with any background information that should be known regarding the topic in question. Don't assume that everyone knows what you're talking about. Please write in a clear concise manner using English. Do NOT write in all texting lingo, slang, etc. You probably want us to understand it so using proper spelling, good grammar, punctuation, and capitals correctly is a great idea. Typos happen, but full paragraphs of misspelled words with no punctuation are difficult to read and won’t be taken seriously (if anyone bothers to read them).

3. Bumping
You may bump your thread up to 1 time a week, any more than this will result in your thread being deleted. This is to allow people who may have missed your post to see it. However, bumping constantly is not necessary, if it's good/interesting, people will respond.

4. Initiate the discussion in the First Post
The importance of the first post can't be stressed enough. If you're going to start a discussion, make sure to participate in it by giving your opinions as well. It's basic forum courtesy to open a topic by sharing your own views regarding the topic at hand. Simply dropping a topic in front of everyone is very distasteful, and in many ways, can be considered rude. Do your job as thread starter and initiate the discussion.

5. Label threads appropriately
When you're asked to fill in the field for Topic Title, be clear and concise. Don't write a lengthy sentence or use unnecessary phrases... just keep it simple and sweet. Do not write in ALL CAPS or list the words/phrases: “Urgent”; “Please look here”; “Must Look”, or any other phrases that have nothing to do with the topic but are only to draw attention. If you topic is of interest people will see it and respond.

6. Create topics sensibly
Don't just start any random topic out of a whim. Think first if the topic is worthy of discussion and worth the time of other users to look through and react/comment upon. Any topic that does not generate any reasonable form of discussion, or a topic that is simply too trivial to discuss will be removed.

7. Always check for Existing Threads
Don't start a thread without having first checked the forums for the same existing thread(s). You can use the search tool bar to find threads with matching keywords. If your topic is a duplicate, it will be deleted.

8. Offer content
Remember that your post is supposed to be read by someone. Don't just post saying 'What’s up', or things similar that others cannot contribute to. It's not a personal space for you to do whatever you want, but an interactive board. The only place you can discuss random things about yourself, is in the “Today” forum and that’s for you to talk about your day with others, remember to follow all the other rules that applies to posting though.


POSTING
Follow these rules for posting or your thread/post will be deleted

1. Stay on topic.
Each thread is made for a purpose, and so its best to keep to that purpose. Yes, things do veer from the first post on a regular basis, but if it’s veering to far from the original topic feel free to start a new topic. It’s easy. But make sure your new topic goes in the correct forum.

2. Do not quote an entire post w/ pics
You may quote a post as long as it doesn’t include more then 1 picture. When you quote someone’s entire post with all the screenshots they post it makes the thread look disorganized.

3. Please proofread before posting.
This is more of a guideline than a strict rule but if it’s important enough for you to post you probably want us to understand it so using proper spelling, good grammar, punctuation, and capitals correctly is a great idea. Typos happen, but full paragraphs of misspelled words with no punctuation are difficult to read and won’t be taken seriously (if anyone bothers to read them).

4. Do not spam for rank move up or you will be removed:
Yes, we understand that posts move you up to being considered a regular member. No, we do not appreciate you spamming to get moved up. You will be banned if you do this. Your posts must be legitimate.

5. Do NOT post chainletters/random messages, etc
Any message that tells you to send the same message to other people or else something bad will happen, are fake. If you happen to see messages like these, please mark them as 'SPAM', and a moderator will delete it.

6. Picture Posting Limit - 2 (unless it is in the contest or share your creation forum, and make sure to read the limit on those forums)
Please refrain from posting more then 2 pictures in a post. Space is limited as the forums are new, and having a bunch of pictures in one post can cause a thread to be overwhelming. This does not mean you can double or triple post right after wards with 2 more images per post. If you must put a lot of images in a post, try linking to the url to a slideshow or online photo album. (See Picture Tutorials Section for more info on how to do this)

7. Do not Double-Post
When you make a post immediately after your last post, this is called Double Posting. If you post three times in a row, that's Triple posting. Post any more than that, it's Spamming. You can use the edit button found on the upper right-hand corner of your last post to add on any additional comments you'd like to add, instead of posting again.

POSTING LINKS

Only post links if they are appropriate
Please use common sense with links. The following are disallowed.
Links to sites (commercial OR personal) that have:
1. Pornographic, racist or illegal materials
2. Profit sites or referral link games. These are sites that earn the poster a profit/commission or sites that give points for incoming links.
3. Links to sites that host potentially illegal content. This would include direct downloads and streaming sites that have videos and music that were uploaded without consent of the copyright holders.
4. Any form of advertising. Unless it is a link to your blog in the blog section, or a link in your signature to you blog, sims 3 homepage, or sims 3 wishlist. You may post links to sites you like in the proper forums, just as long as you genuinely endorse it and don't post it multiple times.

Banning System
Rules are meant to be followed and if these are not followed there will be bans and eventually deletions. Read them carefully and all the way though. I am sure you‘ve heard a lot of these before on other forums, but to ensure your safety and the safety of those around you read them again.

PERMANENT-BANNING:


These are things that will be instant banning for posting once:

1. DO NOT post anything pornographic or anything that displays nudity. This will not be tolerated here. If you're unsure, don't post it. This includes avatars/posts/signatures or anywhere else on the site. If something is obvious full porn it will be deleted and the user will be banned. This also applies for child pornography.

2. DO NOT post anything racist. Racism will not be tolerated on the forum. We are all different and nothing is going to change. Racism will be banned.

3. DO NOT post any animal cruelty or the torture of animals anywhere on the site. This will be instant banning.

4.DO NOT make any threats towards any other members or post personal information for the purpose of harassment.


ONE WARNING:
These actions will be one time warnings followed by banning

1. DO NOT make any threats towards any other members or post personal information for the purpose of harassment. Harassment is not acceptable. Harassment will get one warning and if it continues you will be permanently banned

2. DO NOT use any type of automated tools on this site. That would include any BOT or program designed to steal or leech pictures, videos, or text from this site. The site has measures to detect and ban this type of activity.

3. DO NOT post chain letters. They are fake anyways. If you happen to see messages like these, please mark them as 'SPAM', and an administrator will delete it. If you post them, one time warning followed by a banning.
