Title: Forum rules
Post by: wildcard on May 17, 2004, 06:03:29 PM
[h2]Board-wide Policies[/h2]

[h3]1. Forum rules[/h3]
[list=1]
  • Posts are to be made in the relevant forum. Users are asked to read the forum descriptions before posting.
  • Members should post in a way that is respectful of other users. Flaming or abusing users in any way will not be tolerated.
  • Members should remember this board is a primarily QB place and people worldwide visit because of QB/programming. Posting pornographic or generally offensive text, images, links, etc. will not be tolerated.
  • Spam is not tolerated here under any circumstance. Anything posted excessively or of a commercial nature will be removed.
  • Although this board will tolerate debate on almost any topic, any debate that is about a "sensitive" topic (think religion, race etc), or any debate that users turn into a "sensitive" debate, will be locked.
  • The moderators reserve the right to edit or remove any post at any time. The determination of what is construed as indecent, vulgar, spam, etc. as noted in these points is up to the moderators and not users.
  • Members should note this board is maintained on a voluntary basis. No admin receives payment of any kind for time spent here. Users should therefore not post demanding anything, holding the admin accountable for problems with the board etc.
  • A thread you start is considered "controlled" (albeit in a limited way) by you. You may request a thread you start locked at any time, and when an admin sees this request they will take it into consideration and grant your request providing there is little reason not to. You also control how "off topic" a thread can get, and you may quote this as a valid reason for locking a thread
  • [/list:o]

[h3]2. Signatures[/h3]
[list=1]
  • Text sizes should be between 9 and 12 (small and normal). Text in signatures is subject to the same conditions as posts with respect decency, warez, emoticons, etc. You may include images in your signature, but no more than three, and no larger than 80 pixels high (in total).
  • Links are permitted in signatures. Links are included within the text and image limits above. Links to offensive sites may be subject to removal.
  • [/list:o]

[h3]3. Avatars[/h3]
[list=1]
  • Users are permitted to upload an avatar or to link to one of their own. User defined avatars are to be no larger than 150 pixels square, contain no excessive animation, may not exceed 15KB in filesize and have a consistently high availability (i.e. links to images on slow servers or those prone to failure may be removed).
  • Avatars are subject to the same conditions as posts with respect decency, etc.
  • [/list:o]

[h3]4. Policing[/h3]
[list=1]
  • Qbasicnews operates a three strike policy. Users will be warned a maximum of three times for any and all offences in a three month period. If the need arises for a fourth warning a temporary ban will be put in place of between 1 to 7 days.
  • Arguing with moderators after having received a warning will lead to an immediate additional warning. Should this exceed three strikes a temporary ban will be put in place as above.
  • Users who feel that they have been unfairly been given a warning by an admin may contact another admin with their concerns, however do not contact the admin who warned you, they will interpret that as arguing! While the other admin will read your complaint and discuss it with the other admins, this is no guarantee that a warning/ban will be reversed.
  • Any attempt to circumvent a temporary ban will lead to that ban being made permanent. Circumvention includes re-registering under a non-banned username, changing IP addresses to evade an IP ban, registering a new email account of evade an email ban. Circumvention includes posting as an anonymous user.
  • An exception to the three strike rule applies when users contact moderators personally (via any method) and post insulting, indecent or vulgar material. Such users may be subject to an immediate permanent ban.
  • Permanent bans are a last resort and thought is given before implementing them. While we may consider lifting permanent bans from time to time this is a rare occurrence.
