PostSubject: Clan Rules!   Sun Feb 15, 2009 11:23 am

RULES

I am enforcing some light rules here to firstly see how people will react will these rules into play. I am basing most of my rules and research from what I, Personally, have experienced during my time on neoseeker. So most of the rules will be similar, if not the same as, the Pokemon Diamond and Pearl clans.

  • No Spamming
    Anyone caught talking about anything other that Pokemon and what the clan has been set up for will be sent a warning by either me, a moderator (When we get one) or your clan leader. If this warning is ignored further action will take place.


  • 6 Clan limit
    Neoseeker has a 4 clans limit in an attempt to reduce the ammount of spam in the Sub-Forum. However, I am allowing members to join 6 clans in hope they will respect it enough not to spam. If this rules is ignored, I shall reduce the clan limit down to 4. Each clan can only have 15 members including Leader and co-leader positions.


  • No Flaming
    Anyone caught flaming will be instantly temp-Banned from the sub-forum. The time depending on the offence. Flaming will not be tolerated here.


  • Clan Set out!
    the clan OP must be set out as clearly as possible to refrain from any confusion to new members and so it's easy for them to navigate and get what the clan is about! This is not a rule as such, but it is advised just to make life for members' life a little easier.


  • No Advertising
    You are not allowed to advertise other websites, services, or anything of that matter on forum posts or on individual threads. The punishment for doing so will be decided on a case by case basis and the offending post/thread will be edited or deleted immediately. You can only advertise on your Neoseeker Profile, Avatar, Signature, Custom Title, and Neohome, but doing it in posts and Private Messages (PMs) is strictly forbidden.
    Also, advertising your gang via PM, in other gang, or any other place of Neoseeker goes against this rule. If you want to get people to join your gang, please use one of the methods mentioned above to advertise it.



  • No Flooding


    Flooding is when you post excessively all over the forum just to get your name to show up everywhere, to raise your post count, to be the top forum poster, etc. Usually when you flood, your messages are short and spammy. Spam is not allowed in the first place, so please try not to flood, because remember, there are other members of this forum, and they also deserve a chance to answer questions and post. If you are caugh flooding your forum messages will be deleted and depending on the case, a warning will be sent.



  • No Memberating
    Memberating is to act like a moderator, administrator, staff member, wiki member, or any other rank with powers when you don't have the right credentials. Doesn't matter if you were a moderator on this website before, or if you are a moderator on another website, you are not allowed to boss people around, to threat them, or anything on those lines. If someone is say, posting a thread in the wrong forum, then link them with a nice message, a message that does not make you sound like a boss. A friendly message and a link doesn't hurt anyone and it makes you look more friendly. For instance, if you are linking someone to the right place, you wouldn't say "please follow this link", you would say "Hey there =), you should follow this link to go to the right place".


  • Do Not Bypass Bans


    If you are banned, you are not allowed to post as a guest or to create optional accounts to bypass your ban. You will get caugh, and you will only make your ban longer on both the account you are using to bypass and on your original account. If you have any other family members, friends, or other people that use the same computer as you, then please make sure to show them the forum rules, because if you are banned for legit breaking the rule and you say something like your brother was posting, it will NOT be considered to lift your original ban.
    If you think you are banned because of a misunderstanding, please do not bypass your ban, and just contact me calmly, in a polite way, and we will talk about it.
    If you are constantly bypassing your bans, the Super Moderators and/or Admin will be notified about your accounts and the problem and they will take even more action over your account(s).
    Also please note that clan leaders can "ban" people in a way from their gangs, but that does not mean you won't be able to post in the gang you are "banned" from. But if you are banned from a gang, please just do not post on it. It is common courtesy to leave someone alone when they ask you. If you keep annoying people by posting in their gangs even though they "banned" you from there, you will get a real ban in this forum.



  • Do Not Abuse The Report Feature
    Reporting someone's post or reporting someone to save face in an argument is considered to be an abuse of the function. First you will be contacted to not to do it again. If you do it again, you will be given a PPD restriction so you can only make a few posts a day and you won't be able to report posts anymore.



  • Do Not Share Illegal Material


    Talking about ROMs, emulators, Warez, cracks, Hacks, illegal software and anything in those lines is strictly forbidden.



  • Keep All Your Posts Suitable For Children


    Because this is an E-Rated forum, I am going to be very strict with this rule.
    Do not talk about pornographic content, drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, and anything in those lines. Depending on the case, this may be your only warning.
    This also includes the constant use of swear words. If your post has a ridiculous amount of censored words or swearing in general, it will be deleted. Please think before you swear, that some people are not in your gang doesn't mean they won't see your gang every now and then. Excessive amount of swearing will be dealt with, be it deleted or edited, but is not going to be tolerated anymore. If swearing makes you feel cool, let me tell you it is not.


  • When Will Gang Threads Be Closed?


    Clan threads will be closed when they get around 25 pages to 30. That is, your clan thread may be closed when it has 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, or 30 pages.


  • Creating The New Clan Thread


    Before you create the next thread for your clan, you must wait until the older one is closed and you must have the written consent of a moderator before you make it. That is, if I close a thread simply saying "you can make thread now", then you can make the thread, but if I close it only saying "Max amount of pages reached", you cannot make it yet.



  • Review And Deletion Of Gang Threads



    For now, a gang thread that is closed will be reviewed by me The Admin. If the clan thread has a considerable amount of spam and is constantly breaking the rules, then the gang will be scheduled for deletion 20 days after the review, and post count will be scheduled to decrease as well. That gives you enough time to save the important information on that thread in either an online host or in your own computer. Please note that if you had your casual off-topic chat, but kept the topic of your gang or AC related, it MAY NOT be deleted. Everything will be done in a case by case basis.





  • Joining A clan


    Each clan may have a different system to accept users to join them. You should read the first post of the gang you want to join or PM the leader of the gang to know the details.





  • Creating A Clan


    There will not be a minimum amount of people you need to create a gang. However, you must create the new clan with A LOT of details in the first post. If you create a gang that only says "join me now =D" in the first post, it will be closed instantly. The first post of a clan should at least contain information of the process to join the Clan.




These rules must be obeyed on top of the already enforced site-wie rules. If I can see people are obeying these rules I shall loosen the 'belt' so to speak.
