Superseded Forum Rules

Postby SlyckTom » Sat May 07, 2005 11:04 am

Hi all...We have rewritten the forum rules, here they are. Any questions, please ask.


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

2) No spam. Please do not use the Slyck forum as 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 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. If your project is not about P2P or closely related to this field, don't bother. it is unacceptable, period.

3) Politics. The prohibition on political discussions not pertaining to filesharing has been rescinded. Political discussions will be allowed. However, these discussions will be expected to respect the other forum rules, in particular rule 7.

4) Avatars:

a) Avatars shall not be larger than 100x100 pixels.
b) Avatars shall not have any pornographic images or foul/offensive language.
c) Avatars shall not exceed a data size of 200 kilobytes.

The moderation/administration team will take the liberty of deleting your avatar and informing you via private message if your avatar does not comply with this rule.

5) Signatures:

a) No graphics in the signature block, no matter how large or small. Exception: normal size smilies.
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 three normal lines.

The moderation/administration team will take the liberty of deleting your signature and informing you via private message if your signature does not comply with this rule.

6) Religious threads or comments. Similar to the political rule, certain issues that directly deal with file-sharing or tech issues may be discussed but must follow all of the rest of the rules, such as rule #7.

7) No flaming, name calling, or general lamership. If someone is verbally abusive towards you, be an adult and ignore the other person. This is not real life, and all the name calling in the world will not settle your argument.

8 ) No unnecessary graphics in forum posts. Unless you can provide a graphic that is relevant to the story, they do not belong. This does not apply to lounge posts.

9) No warez/key genz/serialz requests. 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 such requests.

10) 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. In addition, do not request such files. Slyck is not a indexing/request site for these networks.

11) 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.

12) Start a new thread intelligently. When asking for assistance on a particular topic, 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:

"BitLord Has Trouble Connecting." or "BitComet Freezes During Start Up.". If you are asked to change a thread title to make it more descriptive you may achive this by pressing the 'EDIT' button on the appropriate post.

13) Please 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.

14) Absolutely no racism/bigotry

15) 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 staff.

16) No BT invite or account requests/trading. If you wish to trade BT invites or accounts, please do so by PM or do it somewhere else. Requesting/giving invites in this way violates the rules of most (if not all) of these sites, and threads such as these have proven too difficult to moderate. Invite posts/threads are therefore no longer allowed here.

17) Do not abuse formatting tags when posting. 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.

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

If you fail to comply with the set forth rules, the moderation and administration reserve the right to remove your post without notice. Repeated offenses may result in a ban.

Fair enough, and this takes away the 'randomscamsite.com' spammers ability to say, 'I didn't see any rules'.

[Looks like I'll need to shave 58KB off this ava if 100KB becomes the limit]

Pls note: Ava Poll limit is still 100k max :lol:
I know what you're thinking, punk. You're thinking, 'Did he use six superfluous adjectives or only five?' To tell the truth I forgot myself in all this excitement - but as I deal in English, the most powerful language in the world with subtle nuances that may blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel loquacious?' Well do you punk?

I'd just like to point out that I have no intention of changing my avatar. That includes killing more colors or resizing it.
