Forum Rules for the Media Board


Torp v2.0:
The normal rules, which apply to all other subforums, do of course apply here too:

1. Don't be an ass (more than you absolutely have to be)
This means :
Don't be overly rude, act civilized.
If you have bad day don't throw it upon others.
If someone is having bad day don't kick him when he is down. If you can't support shut the fuck up.
Don't sabotage discussions by being an ass just to show how intelligent you think you are. You are not.
If you don't have anything new, productive or positive to add then don't add it.

2. Don't be overly offensive (unless it's really called for!)
This means:
Do not use abusive language of other forumites, their opinions, values or any of their interests.
Do not insult or use bad language of other forumites.
This is a community and you should act like you are part of it

3. Listen to the goddamned mods, okay?
This means:
This forum is quite liberal and mods are quite reasonable.
Even when the rules are quite loose they still exist.
If you're subject to moderation look into mirror first.
Don't argue things considering moderation in public.
If big problems occur, contact mods with PM and ask them to discuss about it.

This means:
No warez
No shock links
No pornographic images
No images shoving overly bad taste
No racism

If one of you should choose to ignore these simple signposts in your forum-life, this is what'll happen:

Let's say that you..for example, spam or goes off-topic in a thread where it's forbidden. Then, this is the deal:
1. We warn first, with deleting the posts if needed.
2. Then we warn again, and lock the thread (if possible & needed)
3. Next time we warn, inform of temporary ban of 1 day, and tempban your sorry ass. Wink
4. Next step is to set a longer temporary ban, 2-3 weeks for example and send a message to the person involved

That's not too harsh, now is it?


More specific rules will be added accordingly here:

1. No shock links; not everybody on these forums appreciates such explicit material, so keep it clean. For gods sake you're not a spam bot, don't act like one.

Edit: Fixed mumppis spelling-error.
Edit #2: Fixed my own rather obvious math-error. Wink
Edit #3: Rules fixed and clarified by mod team

In addition, since this is a board where much of what will be discussed will include spoilers for tv series, movies and possibly books, I have added a fifth rule on suggestion from Sirix:

Any string of text containing a spoiler (except really minor ones) should be written in black on black glow-background:

--- Code: ---[glow=black,2,300][color=black]SPOILER TEXT[/color][/glow]
--- End code ---
unless the thread is specifically marked with SPOILERS! in the thread name, in which case the thread name should tell anyone who does not want to be exposed to spoilers for that particular piece to stay away from the thread.

So, yeah, be nice to each other, make sure to hide spoilers, and discuss away!
