Silly question but where are the forum rules?


You can see them, once you enter any board, under your "location", in this case below the
"Armed Assault Info Forums > English > About our website" text.

I first had problems finding the rules too, they should be placed somewhere where people would actually see them. blink.gif

Well look at the top of a forum.

See that big reddish box with 'forum rules' written in it? tongue.gif

Compared tot he old forum which didn't have the said red box, I wouldn't think its hard to miss since is designed to draw attention to the link.

I thought you must read the rules before registering? If not, we should add this, so no one can say: I didn't see them! _weapons_owned.gif

Perhaps like that system where you have to scroll to the bottom of a textbox before you can click OK. I used to get so f**cked by that laugh.gif

Yes.

If it is all typed without spaces, the computer can't distinguish seperate words, and thinks they are one, putting them on the same line, which causes the layout to stretch.

No feedback? No queries? Complaints? No one wants to know how far the plan for our world dominion forced through force of arms is going?

Dont be afraid to debate or ask in here, this is the one thread where 'no public discussion of forum moderation' is waived so long as its clean smile.gif

i must say i found the pr'ing of brat to be a little harsh. i think with our community being its size (and also the thread in question) rules like the one mentioned can be turned a blind eye too aslong as they dont happen often. Perhaps brat deserved it as to the sheer cheekyness, however i dont feel the initial warning after pmasters post needed to really be made. it all seemed a bit....pointless. Its not asif pmaster did somthing that is a regular annoyance for the moderators (eg. posting a pic over 100kb). Its sort of like political correctness.

It's as much a rule as those preventing warez and porn being posted on these forums, adverts being made for commercial services, and as such it will be enforced. Just because some rules may look innocent, or there is no moderator around to enforce them, does not mean they don't have to be followed, if a rule was not needed then it would not exist, and like Wittmann already explained we are quite happy with the current set of rules, and have no plans to alter them.

Brattaccas made a mockery of the forum staff by doing exactly what had been asked not to do only a few posts above. As such this rule applied:

QUOTE
§3)Follow the instructions of the moderators
When an administrator or moderator asks you to do something or to stop doing something, please follow their instructions, if you're unhappy with their instructions feel free to PM them or another moderator or administrator. Do NOT discuss this in the thread itself, otherwise it will be considered spam and you will be punished forwith. You have the right to discuss your position with a moderator or an administrator so long as you remain unabusive and reasonable. Your punishment can be reduced or removed at the discretion of a moderator or administrator.


If you read this through, you will also see that discussing the moderators' decision like pMaster did is not allowed in the thread itself. Such things are preferably done by PM, or the Moderation Feedback Thread. It exists for a reason: to keep the other topics free of bickering smile.gif

Lo folks,

I have to agree with Trev here. Were a small community of 20 regular posting 'mature' friends who chat amongst ourselves and provide a service to those who have problems. We all know each other by first name, we know where we all live and we've known each other for years. Too the letter moderation will only upset and alienate people. Were all equal here, we have to be with such low numbers. I talked about my kicking from BiForums last week in the community chatter thread. It was against the rules but it was topical. We had a chat about it and later witty reminded us that it wast really allowd and that was that. Moderators need to reactively enforce the rules. They need to be sensible, communicate and support people as they are the backbone of the community there to ensure the smooth running of the forum.

The results of a mod team going wrong on a forum can be seen on the BIForums.


Lets not end up there.
thanks, Carver
