|Subject: Revised Rules List Thu Apr 08, 2010 3:39 am|| |
This is a revised, more specific rules list written and proposed by Gamemaster.
Here at Otakutech, we hope for you to have fun, but do keep in mind we do intend to keep this forum family friendly, and to make an attempt to keep it as such, we ask that the rules listed below be followed. If you have any questions, contact a moderator or administrator with your question or post it on the help board.
[This is italicized given that we may or may not follow through with such a board]
We ask that all users do not spam in any way or form. This includes but is not limited to:
- Multiple posts when deemed unnecessary
- Off-topic posts
- Posting in a foreign language or gibberish when unnecessary.
*This does not include instances when something is being translated or something similar, this is understood as acceptable. This rule is meant to say when a user is replying to a topic in a foreign language such as Spanish when it is unnecessary and irrelevant
2. Acceptable Language
At Otakutech, obscenities and foul language are expected to be kept at an absolute minimum, as this forum is intended to be family friendly. An occasional Hell or damn is understandable, however using obscenities in excess or more obscene words on the forum will not be tolerated.
3. Respecting Others
At Otakutech, generally one should go by the guideline "Treat how you want to be treated". However, in order to provide a more structured list on this matter, refer to the following:
-Do not flame others
Whether you dislike another member or don't care for their opinion, you are entitled to express this, but do not do so in a harsh manner that is rude or offensive. There is a way to criticize somebody and do so constructively.
-Trolling will not be tolerated
No matter what the circumstance, trolling will not be tolerated under any circumstance. For those who are unaware of what trolling is, the following definition comes from urbandictionary.com
Trolling is the act of purposefully antagonizing other people on the internet, generally on message boards.
4. Multiple Accounts
Unless otherwise approved by the administration, an individual is limited to one account only. If an individual is suspected of having multiple accounts, he or she will be contacted on the matter and depending on the outcome, will be taken care depending on the situation.
5. Inappropriate Material
Since the intent of this forum is to be family friendly, no inappropriate material will be tolerated. This includes but is not limited to fields such as excessive gore, obscenities, and pornography. This also includes Hentai. While this may be an anime forum, the intent is to discuss actual Japanese animation and other such creations, and speak of or exchange material in which has no actual intent beyond satisfying sexual interests.
