    #2 Important Definitions/Interpretations

    Post  Leaf Azure Forte on Fri Jun 25, 2010 2:37 pm

    Important Definitions/Interpretations

    In this section, certain words and phrases used throughout the rules will be defined and/or interpreted. This is so there is no confusion over what is meant by a certain rule and so the rules cannot be argued.

    Spam: A message and/or topic that is pointless, off-topic, or otherwise lacks content that adds to the discussion. Topics with misleading titles are also considered spam, regardless of the message content.

    Double Posting: Posting twice or more times in a row without other people's posts in between. If you want to add something, you should use the edit button.

    Flooding: Intentionally posting many times in a short period of time with no useful purpose and an intent to disrupt the forums to the extent that it can no longer be considered double posting. Generally, four or more posts in a row is considered flooding.

    Flaming: Any posts meant to offend or hurt any other member in a manner which is offensive and/or insulting. Even calling someone a n00b is considered light flaming.

    Harassment: Constantly nagging someone with offensive or negative messages in an attempt to make them feel unhappy or annoyed.

    Warez: Illegally copied software that is often associated with pirating.

    Ripping: Taking someone else's original artwork, such as signatures and avatars, and claiming them as your own. Even if you slightly edit the image, it is still considered ripped.

    Scamming: Attempting to trick or persuade somebody in handing over the password to their account.

    Impersonation: Replicating someone's profile and/or name in order to appear to be that person.

    Event Interference: Performing actions with the intent of causing disruption in events. There are several ways you can commit event interference. The ways to commit event interference are: Joining an event without the intent of participating, searching to private battle a tournament participant without being in the tournament, and spamming or flooding in event threads.

    Back Seat Modding: Warning members and/or "punishing" them as if you are a moderator when you aren't actually a moderator. The real moderators can handle their jobs just fine without fakes running around.

    Ban Evading: Accessing the forums while you are banned, which usually makes things worse because it results in a permanent IP ban.

    Classified Information: Any information that is meant to be kept secret from normal members.

    Drama: Immature behavior that causes a disruption on the forums and usually causes members to fight among themselves. Please, respect each other and DO NOT CAUSE DRAMA SERIOUSELY!!!!!!! I SEEN ENOUGH ON S-A!!!!!

    Trolling: This has multiple meanings; basically, trolling is when you create a topic or post where you intentionally try to get a negative reaction from others, whether it be spam or drama.

    Troll Accounts: Accounts/alt accounts that were made for the sole purpose of spamming, trolling, or any other violation of the rules, as an attempt to avoid getting in trouble on their real account. Which doesn't work because these accounts are normally permanently IP-banned.

    #3 The Amazing Edit Button

    The Amazing Edit Button

    Double posting is against the rules. That is when you post multiple times within a short time period without anyone else posting. The way to fix this is to use The Amazing Edit Button!
    It is the black button located at the bottom of your post next to the +.

    #4 Bumping Guide

    Post  Leaf Azure Forte on Fri Jun 25, 2010 2:43 pm

    Bumping Guide

    This section explains how you can bump a topic without breaking the double-posting rule. It is really simple and you should be fine as long as you follow the guidelines. Bumping is primarily used in clan topics.

    A bump may only be used at least 24 hours after the last post on the thread, not 24 hours after your own last post. If you bump before 24 hours it is spam (most people will not time you to the second so wait a minimum of 23 hours). Also, having post after post between you and another person of just the word "bump" is not bumping the topic, but indeed spamming it. The first offense of mis-bumping will result in your post being deleted, any further offense will result in disciplinary actions. Please keep this in mind when you want to bump a topic.

    In Short:
    1) Bumps are only to be used 24 hours after the last post on the topic.
    2) Mis-use of bumps the first time, your post will be deleted. Anymore after that, and it's warnings and/or bans.
    3) Do not start a discussion with someone having "bump" in every post.

    #5 Spelling/Grammar

    Post  Leaf Azure Forte on Fri Jun 25, 2010 2:45 pm

    Spelling/Grammar

    On the topic of grammar:

    Please take the time to, at the very least, capitalize the first letter of your sentences. It makes identifying each individual sentence much easier. Proper nouns are not a must, as I forget to capitalize them as well, so it's not like I can yell at you for that. However, capitalizing them would still help, though it is by no means necessary.

    Please PUNCTUATE. It becomes rather difficult to read if you string together multiple ideas without any sort of break. It takes under a second to type in a period, a comma, or even a semicolon ( ; ) if you're daring.

    Abbreviations: Take the extra second, PLEASE, to type the extra two characters. It's nearly effortless to do this, and clears up a good amount of confusion. This includes R, Hu, Wut, Y, U, etc... While abbreviations such as b/c and w/o and IDK etc. are fine, one to two letters is really not asking much.

    Spelling: At least make a conscious effort to spell correctly. If you don't know how to spell a word, or if your finger slips, that's fine; but don't rush so much that you start yo splap the ketyboad like this. This is not a race; your post will still get read, and the time you took to spell everything correctly (spellcheck helps too) will make it much easier on everyone else.

    1337: 1337 is not cool. It's stupid and difficult to read. Don't try to complicate things by typing in 1337.

    Caps Lock: It is not wise to type in ALL CAPS LOCK LIKE THIS! It is annoying and people will think that you are yelling at them. Be wise and look at what you're typing every once in a while, to make sure you didn't accidentally turn caps lock on.
    --------------------
    If you just follow those guidelines, not only will everything you type be a lot clearer, but you will also seem more intelligent. (Note: You want to seem intelligent. People will like you more that way.)
