PostSubject: Rules of GameTech Ps3   Sun Dec 16, 2012 12:44 am

Welcome to GameTech Ps3

Revised: 15 Dec 2012

GENERAL INFORMATION

Below you will find a list of rules, and a brief explanation of some terms you will hear a lot on the boards. We will ask that you follow these rules, use common sense, and just generally help make this community a good and friendly place.

Please know that no member of the GameTech Ps3 Administration/Staff will never contact you for your email address, password, or any other personal information. No member of the Staff will ever contact you for any of the above, as the Administration, and only the Administration, has access to these three things if you wish to keep it private. If anyone contacts you for your password, please report them to us immediately so we can stop the imposter.

Please note that no email you recieve from this forum goes unsolicited. When you goto your CP, you can opt to recieve Administrator mailings or not. If you ever complain about getting these emails, it will be ignored. The CP page marked off to stop getting mail from us. Any threat of legal action will not be taken seriously, as the forum emailings do not get sent to you unless you permit it.

Please do not give out any personal information such as phone number, postal address, zip code, last name, or anything you do not wish others to know. If you choose to ignore this request, we cannot be held responsible for the consequences. First Name, Age, Gender, Location, and Birthday are all optional upon registration. As stated above, only email address, username, and password are required. Please know privacy is very important to us; we will never divulge your email address to anyone without first asking your consent. If you get "spam" emails from a member (this can occur if you check "Yes" for show email on the registration page) please report the email address to us so we can investiage.

All smilies are copyright or trademark their respective owner, and are in no way, shape, or form, declared our own.


MODERATORS/GLOBAL MODERATORS

Moderators are the first Staff position you can get, and they are given power to enforce the TOS by editing/closing/moving what is not neccessary, or appropriate in the forum that they are assigned to. They carry none of the aforementioned power outside of the forums they are given. Moderators can delete, and can ban.

Global Moderators are the second highest ranking Staff member, and generally the same as Moderators, except their editing/closing/moving powers are on a global basis, which means they have power in all forums, not just the ones they are assigned to.

Administrators are the highest ranking Staff member, and oversee all forum happenings. They can edit, delete, close, and move anything, anywhere in the forum. They also have Administrator control panel access, where they can IP ban, edit signatures, delete accounts, and generally change anything technical in the forum.

If you'd like to be a Moderator, Global Moderator, the first rule is DON'T ASK. When a Staff member sees someone who has contributed a lot to a specific forum or forums, we will hold a poll in the Staff lounge to get the forum team's opinion. If it's a yes, we will PM you and offer a job. If it's a no, we will PM you and inform you you came close to becoming a Moderator, but were lacking in one area, but encourage you to keep up the good work and possibly step it up a bit. If you ask to be a Moderator, your chances of becoming one are incredibly lessened. Also, if you only have about 10 posts, please don't bother asking because it's not enough for us to evaluate you on.

SUPSENDING/BANNING

Banning is when a member's access is cut off from the board. They cannot view, post, reply, anything at the forum. If your breach of TOS is not very major, we will simply ask you not to do it again. If your breach of TOS is above minor but below major, you will be suspended. If your breach of TOS is major, it is possible you will be banned. Each case is unique, and the Administration will handle each issue as it arises.

You will become banned if you break any of the posting rules, and disciplinary action may be necessary. You may be warned, suspended, or banned depending on the severity of your misconduct. We do not like to ban people, but if a member is creating a negative envrionment for the rest of the forum, we will have no choice. So, please just follow the rules and you will be fine.

PUNISHMENTS FOR VIOLATORS

When you breach of any of these TOS, the following actions can and will be taken:

- 1st Warning % (informal/via PM)

- 2nd Warning %(formal in public)

- Suspension & Warning %(When out of warnings, your username will be supsended)

PRIVELAGES

Your privileges as a member (as opposed to a guest) are these: you are able to post new reviews, stories, and threads, reply to current threads, give feedback, and generally be part of the community. Please note that as a member you cannot delete your threads, only edit them. If you'd like a thread deleted, private message the Moderator of that forum, a Global Moderator, or an Administrator. If you would like to delete a story or review, private message an Administrator and they will do it.


Please remember that we are not responsible for any messages posted. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message. The messages express the views of the Author of the message, not necessarily the views of this site. Any member who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately by e-mail and/or private message. We have the ability to remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary. You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this site to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise in violation of any law. You agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or by this site.

POSTING RULES

These rules are put into effect so that the discussion that takes place can be enjoyable for everyone involved. If you feel a post breaks, or may be breaking, the TOS, please contact Admin or one of the Moderating Staff.

#1. Please don't insult another forum member based on their religion, race, or culture. Those are their beliefs, not yours, so keep your rude opinions to yourself. Also, try and keep outright flaming out of the public forum. If you have a problem, try and work it out with them via PM. If you are unable to solve your differences, contact an Administrator, Global Moderator, or Moderator.

#2. We would appreciate it if you tried to keep your posts as clean as possible. We understand you may become angry enough to say some pretty "serious" swear words, but please keep cussing moderate and do not do it excessively.

#3. No pornographic images are permitted at this forum. Anyone who is caught by a Staff member will be immediately banned, no questions asked. If you are a member, and find offensive materials, IMMEDIATELY notify a Moderator, Global Moderator, or Administration.

#4. Administrators, Global Moderators, and Moderators are the staff here. They make decisions on a day-to-day basis and make sure GameTech Ps3 keeps a positive and friendly environment. If you have a problem, PM a Moderator, Global Moderator or Administrator.

#5. A user may be warned, suspended, or banned for rule infractions, or general misconduct. What action is taken will depend on severity of TOS violation and the user's history on the site.

#6. No spamming! Don't post a thread more than once, and please wait a full 24 hrs. before bumping your thread again if you get no responses. Also, try and post your thread in the appropriate/correct forum. If you've noticed it's in the wrong forum after you posted it, just PM one of the Moderators and they'll go ahead and move it to the correct forum for you. Forum Staff reserve the right to lock, delete, edit, and/or move any thread or post.

#7. Advertizing! Staff will allow one banner/button in your signature. The link must be hidden, and you may not put this beside it:

CLICK HERE in super large font

You may do this:

^Click here for my forums^ in normal sized font, underneath your banner/button link.

You may also do text links. This is an example of a text link:

[url= http:// gametechps3. forumotion.com/ ] Hot Forums [/url] (no spacing)

It will appear as this in your signature:

Hot Forums

Violaters will have their signatures removed.

If your Caught/Reported as trying to recruit for your site thru PM's, Admin will be forced to shut you down or ban you. One banner is enough advertizement. You do not need to bother other members or Staff with your junk mail.

#8. Double Posting! Staff will allow certain occasions for Double Posting. But for the most part, please learn to use the EDIT Button. See Warning Percentages for more on this. (NOTE: Staff is allowed to DOUBLE POST)

#9. When posting, type in a subject that summarizes your question. A great way to turn off other members wanting to help you is to type an incomplete, or silly subject for your post. Examples of poor subject titles include:

- "Help me now!"
- "I'm a newbie...go easy"
- "How can I..."
- "Urgent...help!"

Also, be descriptive and articulate when asking your question-When posting, understand that you're trying to convince others to help you. Be articulate and have respect for the English language! Some important guidelines on this:

- Always do a quick check for spelling/grammar mistakes, both in your subject and post itself.
-Format your question and code in an easily legible manner. Use the preview button often.
- Be concise and articulate as much as possible.

#10. Signature must be no larger than 400 x 125 px.

Avatars must be no larger than 100 x 100 px.

#11. Check each forum before you post, as there my be a Sticky that will offer more rules on top of the TOS.



FREEDOM OF SPEECH

Freedom of Speech? Although the constitution of the US guarantees that Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech, this website is not Congress. Freedom of speech rights do not extend to this privately run website. The TOS/Guidelines of this website governs the behaviors and activities of the members. If you choose not to follow the guidelines agreed to during registration, the result is a disabling/banning of your account.


SUMMARY

These are the rules of the forum. They are not set in stone, nor do they include everything. This the basic outline of the rules. Matters not listed in these rules will nonetheless be dealt with. Always use common sense before posting.

Please note that this forums Staff reserve the right to ban users without just cause at any given time. (not saying we will, just in case someone is bringing negativity and no rule above specifically says we can ban them)

If you have any questions about anything found on this page, please send a private message to an Administrator. All member complaints, post/thread reports, or what have you, should be PMed to an Administrator, Global Moderator, or Moderator of the given forum.
