User Guidelines

Post by Soreu » Wed Sep 02, 2015 6:18 pm

User Guidelines
If you believe that someone has violated our User Guidelines or you have spotted content that may otherwise require attention, please report it with a short description of what you believe is wrong. In no case should a user respond to a situation personally, thereby aggravating the situation further. Responding to a violation in an inflammatory manner is a violation in itself and will result in appropriate action.

Any content that violates our User Guidelines will be removed. Interpretation of our guidelines is at the discretion of the staff.

  1. The official language of this forum is English.
    Using other languages is allowed, but try to speak English only on the forum so that everyone understands each other. Intentionally distorted or illiterate language is unwelcome.
  2. Respect other members.
    Please refrain from inflammatory and defamatory comments as well as flaming, taunting, and general disrespect. Do not simply put down the opinion or advice given by others. If you don't agree with it, say why - respectfully. Don't just tell them they're wrong. Do not make uninvited remarks about typos, duplicate posts, posting styles, etc.

    When an opinion-based discussion is being had, do not state things like "there is no argument" as if your opinion is the only one or the only one that matters. When someone has clearly stated their opinion, do not say things like "Are you serious?" and "Are you kidding me?" Remember, this is not a debate club. This is a friendly discussion community. Allow people to have their opinion. No one is to act as some sort of opinion judge, responding to each one to say whether they agree with it or not or whether or not it is a valid, well thought out opinion.
  3. Vulgar language and inappropriate material is not allowed and will be removed.
    We try to maintain a friendly atmosphere whenever it is possible - please keep this in mind.
  4. Do not post copyrighted materials that you do not have permission to reproduce or distribute.
    This is not the place to illegally trade or distribute copyrighted (or those with questionable copyright status) materials.
  5. Posts that discuss illegal activities, transactions, or websites (warez, etc.) will be removed.
    This includes the posting of information that you have obtained illegally.
  6. Political and religious discussions are not allowed on this forum.
    If it is believed that the end result of a discussion will be political or religious, the post may be removed. Likewise, strong political and religious sentiments should be kept out of profiles, signatures, and other content.
  7. Cross posting is not allowed and will result in the removal of one or more posts.
    Cross posting is defined as posting the same information in two or more locations. When posting your topic, please try to post it in the most appropriate place within the organizational structure of our community. Identical topics posted in the same or different forums will be removed or in rare cases, merged.
  8. Automated account creation, participation, and content scraping is not permitted.
  9. Each user is allowed to create one account.
    If you would like to change your username, please contact us and, most likely, we can do it for you while you can keep all of your profile data, posts, and other content.
  10. While member post count has meaning, it should not be taken too seriously.
    Attempts to artificially increase your post count are prohibited. This includes the mass creation of short or meaningless posts.
  11. Moderators and administrators have the final say on anything.
    If you have a problem, you may make a complaint to them directly and not publicly on the forum. Creating threads or posts that question or reference administrative decisions or potential administrative decisions, such as post removals and thread closures, is not permitted. We are not perfect and if you feel that we have made a mistake, please privately contact a staff member and we will review the situation.
  12. Please have fun and enjoy the forum!
    So, whenever you are participating in this community, please keep in mind that we strive to create a fun, friendly, and inviting atmosphere.
These guidelines detail the types of behavior and activities that are allowed here.

If a user violates our guidelines and shows a disregard for them, our staff and our community, they run the risk of being banned. These guidelines are subject to change at any time without notice.

Do you have a question about our User Guidelines or anything else? Do you have a suggestion? Do you want to offer some feedback? Or are you experiencing some trouble with the forum? Well, no matter what it is, please do not hesitate to contact staff members, and we will be glad to help in any way that we can.
Based on User Guidelines by Managing Online Forums.

2 Accounts

Post by Welf » Fri Oct 23, 2015 10:42 pm

There is a rule in this forum, that only 1 account per user is allowed, but Soreu has 2 accounts: Soreu and Xurike.
You shouldn't be allowed to have 2 accounts and ban others, if they have 2, thats not fair and wrong. Besides that i can't imagine a reason to have 2 accounts.

Maybe i am in the wrong topic.

Xurike is indeed my account, but since last few months its only purpose is to test out things so that I don't have to make any real user being my testing-rabbit for things like if BBCode works properly before it's added, if group have proper permissions, if what I just added is visible for users etc.

in $11 of the User Guidelines
(...) please privately contact a staff member and we will review the situation.
why privately? on SE (Stack Exchange) there is always a Meta Page where you can ask the moderators about why they did somethinf, what is allowed and so on. it would be easy to add such a forum where you can ask these things public because, I quote many forum/mailinglist rules, "everything which is private will only help you and won't help the community"
you can manage it like the staff forum, where you place strict rules.

i think there should be a place where admins have to explain theirselfes to the community, not only to one user.
