Forum Rules

Post by bigfinger » Wed Jun 14, 2017 9:07 pm

Use this as a guide to figure out what is and isn't acceptable on this board and forums.

How avoid trouble?

Don't flame, troll, or post disruptively and don't encourage such behavior.
Don't victimize others and avoid discriminatory language.
Don't discuss any illegal activities.
Don't post inappropriate material (pornographic, overtly sexual, gore, etc).
Don't post from an alternate account.
Don't spam!!!

Definition of Spam

Topics in which you are advertising, promoting, soliciting and offering goods/services for commercial purposes or financial gain.
Topics that consist of "thoughts of the day", immature or inane content/purpose.
Topics solely linking to websites, images, videos or other material without any commentary from the topic creator.

How We Control Spam

New users are unable to create more than one forum topic per 24-hour window until they've created five forum topics.
New users can only post 5 posts a day.
Once a user has 25 total posts, this restriction is dropped.
Flagged content gains +1 karma point for the submitter and the accused. If the moderator accepts the accuser's position, their karma is reset.
Once a user hits +10 karma they are banned from posting.
Karma automatically degrades -1 karma each night.

Three Strike Rule

Hate speech and threats have no place in the TAOEX community. We want this board and the forums to be welcoming and engaging for users. Therefore, the moderating team has a 3 strike rule that will be enforced. It is as follows:

First offense: User will receive a warning.
Second offense: Seven-day suspension from the site.
Third offense: Permanent Ban from TheWay

For the sake of clarity, this will include forums, comment sections, and blogs. The ban will be imposed to those that violate our guidelines within a span of 60 days of each offense. If no further incidents occur within the 60 day period, the user will be cycled back to good standing all is right in the world.
