Forums work better if you post! Here are some rules.

Postby Al Gilman » 09 Jan 2011 00:34

In order to facilitate a positive discussion environment please observe the following rules:

  • Please post in English and preferably something can be read.
    • DONT POST IN ALL CAPITALS IT APPEARS AS IF YOU ARE SHOUTING!
  • Keep your profanity to yourself, do not use any harmful, threatening, abusive, defamatory, obscene, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive language.
  • Do not ban jump.
    • Ban jumping is using another account while banned or using a different IP address
    • Creating multiple accounts to evade a ban will result in a permanent ban of all involved accounts.
  • Do not post harmful, obscene, pornographic, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive images.
  • Stay on topic, off-topic posts will be deleted and counted as spam.
  • Refrain from trolling or flaming.
    • Trolling is posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages.
    • Flaming is hostile and insulting interaction between Internet users. To avoid flaming, do not post flamebait or participate in a flame war, if one ever happens.
  • Avoid posting the same thing twice, use the search feature to see if a similar topic exists. Also remember to post in the correct forum section.
  • Do not spam. Using excessive smilies in a single post and minimal word posts ("yes" or "okay") are considered spam.
    • Avoid double, triple, quadruple, etc.. posting. Editing your first post instead!
    • Also avoid "bumping"/posting in old topics (1 month or older). Any conversation is usually dead, if you have something of dire importance relating to the topic, post a new thread.
  • Avoid mini-modding, or being a "back seat moderator". Report the post if necessary, do not reply.
  • Advertising of any shape, way or form is NOT permitted on the Lore Forum. This includes any referral links!

Failure to follow above rules may cause you to lose the privilege of being able to post on the forum. Remember these rules may change at any time, it is your responsibility to keep up to date with them.

PLEASE DO NOT REPLY TO SPAMBOTS

Postby WhiteTiger » 09 Feb 2011 21:36

If your unsure about what a spambot is, it is posters who post mostly pointless topics but spam links to other websites to try and get some advertisement. Whatever you do, do not click on the links no matter what.

If you do see a spambot, please don't reply to it. All this does is bump the topic up to the top of the list where more people are likely to see it and get fooled by it. A mod will be by shortly to get rid of the vermin. If you want to, please report the topic to guarantee the fastest removal possible.

Topic Creation

Postby Extreme speed » 06 Apr 2011 22:42

Before you create a new topic, please check the following:

  • That the topic you are about to create fits in the category (e.g an AQWorlds topic should not be created under "HeroSmash")
  • That topic you are about to create hasn't already been created, or in many cases, relates to any other topics
  • Ýour topic should make sense
  • Your topic follows all Forum Rules
  • That you will not create the topic for the sake of advertising, etc

Thanks for reading, and have fun on LoreForum!
