New Forum Rules

Postby SlyckTom » Wed Nov 12, 2008 7:46 am

1) Absolutely no racism/bigotry. No name calling, flaming or general lamership. Disrespectful behavior focused towards fellow community members, administration, or moderation staff will not be tolerated.

2) No advertising. Please do not post any type of promotional/commercial threads in the Slyck forums. This includes trying to promote 'free iPod' sites or any other kind of commercial site.

3) No spam. Please do not use the Slyck forum as a launch pad for your website or other personal or commercial products. Slyck's forums are not designed as a promotional tool for your 1337 BitTorrent site, your eDonkey2000 indexing site, your private server or your new P2P program.

This also includes 'fan boys' or 'fan girls' using every available forum to aggressively promote their favorite P2P software.

If you feel as though your new project or P2P site isn't spam and is helpful to the community, please contact an administrator and we'll consider making an exception.

4) Avatars:

a) Avatars shall not be larger than 150x150 pixels.
b) Avatars shall not have any pornographic images or foul/offensive language.
c) Avatar data size must not appreciably deteriorate the quality or experience of the Slyck community.

5) Signatures:

a) No graphics in the signature block no matter how large or small. Exception: normal sized emoticons.
b) No excessive font size. The default size should suit an overwhelming majority of your needs.
c) It is preferred that signatures consume one (1) normal line. Signatures should be no longer than five (5) normal lines.

6) There is no rule six.

7) No copyrighted web/hash/NZB links or requests. Do not post or reference any copyrighted web/hash/NZB links to files that exist on networks such as BitTorrent, eDonkey2000 or Usenet. No warez/key genz/serialz links. In addition, do not request such files. Please don't ask for the location of specific files, programs, movies or other copyrighted material. This includes cracks. Slyck is not the appropriate forum for any unauthorized file requests.

8) Start a new thread intelligently. When asking for assistance, please use a descriptive subject to illustrate your situation. Please avoid the following generic examples:

"Help Please!" or "Need Help! or "OMG WTF!111"

Instead, be descriptive and concise. If you are having problems with a BitTorrent client, make sure your subject contains the pertinent information. For example:

"Vuze Has Trouble Connecting." or "Vuze Freezes During Start Up."

9) Don't bump/revive old threads without a good reason. The longer a thread has been inactive, the better the reason for bumping it needs to be.

10) No multiple Slyck accounts/usernames. Registering multiple accounts and alternating between those accounts, in an attempt to masquerade as a different user, is not allowed. If you're having problems accessing an existing account or would like to change your username, please contact a member of the staff.

11) No invite or account requests/trading. If you wish to trade BT or newsgroup-related invites or accounts, please do it somewhere else.

12) DO NOT TYPE SUBJECT IN ALL CAPS. It is totally unnecessary to write the subject of a new thread or post, or the post itself, in all caps.

13) Do not abuse formatting tags when posting and don't be an attention whore. Please don't make posts that are in all bold text, all in color, large font, etc. The purpose of these tags is to highlight or emphasize selected text, and they lose their meaning when applied to entire posts.

14) Do not paste private messages, or excerpts from them, in the public forum. They are called private for a reason.

After a lot of hard work from the admin, jedi and mod staff here, we have revamped the forum rules. We've widdled the total number of rules down to only 12 by consolidated a few rules, and eliminating several others.

It'd be pretty pointless being disrespectful to half of these moderation staff, because they log in, what, once every six months?

Your logic here is sound, but unfortunately that logic doesn't translate well to everyone. Just because someone hasn't posted in 6 months doesn't necessarily exclude them from the flaming tendencies of others....

Sorry, I wasn't trying to be rude or diss any of the people on that list. But, to be honest, I do wonder why some of them are classed as moderators when we never see or hear from them.

I like this spammer. Whimsical musings about love, followed by links to warcraft hacks. I give this spambot a 7/10 for effort.

You do nicole? Then you must truly be a moronic asshat to agree to the rules, then break them by spamming your garbage. But don't worry, your posts have been properly dealt with.
