General Rules for Seibertron.com's Forums

Seibertron.com's Forum Rules

1. No flaming, trolling, harassing, or baiting other guests.
Flaming should be self evident, trolling means to make posts or threads for the intended purpose of starting an argument, while baiting is any post intended to make another user resort to flaming. Harassment means following a user or group of users around through multiple threads to flame them, bait them means to say comments that intentionally provokes someone into an action to start a flame war or to "get a response" from them, or otherwise cause them to want to avoid the boards because of a user's actions towards them. If there is a discussion and there ends up some sort of disagreement on someones personal opinion, simply try and respect each others opinions without forcing them on others.

Example of a disagreement with opinions

Your reason for supporting your political view is not good because... is an ok statement.
If you believe that you suck and are stupid... is not an ok statement.

2. No excessive cursing, violence, or sexual content.
Most of us around here are adults and this is not an excuse to allow excessively foul language, nor the graphic depictions/descriptions of violence or sexual situations. Use common sense.

3. No hate speech.
No racial slurs, religious discrimination, sexism, homophobic remarks, etc. Seibertron.com is open and welcoming to everyone, and we plan on keeping it that way.

4. No discussion nor promotion of illegal activities.
This includes but is not limited to drug use, Theft, solicitation of a minor, Illegal downloading of movies and copyright infringement (including the distribution of files such as video game ROMs and PDFs of commercially available books).

5. No Spam or Commercial Advertising.
Do not make threads that have absolutely no constructive purpose (such as "Post about anything here!" threads). If your thread does not have at least some attempt at a topic, it will be considered spam and locked. This includes spam posts just so you can pad your post count. We are also not here to be free advertising to make you money. If you want to advertise on Seibertron.com, contact a moderator or the site admin and we'll see about working something out with you. Otherwise, any thread linking to a commercial site for the express purpose of getting guests to buy things from it will be locked, and the link removed. Do not continuously bump your thread as this can be considered spam to pad up your post count, let others move it back to the top.

6. Post in the correct sections.
Each section is labeled so we all should realize that TF movie discussion goes in the movie forum and not the General Discussion area. If you post in the wrong section, your thread may be moved to the proper forum with or without notification. If you find that you have posted something in the wrong section and it is an error, please contact a moderator or administrator to move the thread to it's appropriate section do not make a duplicate post.

7. Do not make duplicate threads.
When you want to make a new thread, do a quick search using the 'search' button at the top of the page (if it is functioning). When searching for any given term, make sure to click on 'search for all terms', or you will get pages of unrelated posts. If there is already a thread on that subject, post to it instead of making a new thread. If multiple threads on the same subject are discovered, the odds are that one of them will be locked. If your post is locked please do not make duplicate threads of the same subject as it was locked for a reason.

8. Do not create multiple accounts.
Making dual accounts is heavily frowned upon so do not make one. If you are found having a dual account it could end in an immediate permanent ban from Seibertron.com.

9. Do not create improper usernames.
Vulgar usernames, or usernames that are intentionally copying an existing user for the purpose of trying to trick people into thinking you are that poster will not be tolerated. Any name that is deemed improper will be modified by the Seibertron.com staff as they see fit. If you re-register with the same name after it has been deemed inappropriate, it will be banned outright. If you think the name you are signing up with is kind of iffy, then don't use it.

10.Post in a readable form.
The forums support different colors for posts, but be responsible about it. All of the forums use a whitish gray background, so posts written in Cyan or white, for example, are extremely difficult to read without highlighting. Use some common sense, if you can't read what you wrote, neither can anybody else.

11. Mod's the Word
If a moderator/administrator has to step in and hand out warnings/bans or other disciplines adhere to their wishes. Do not treat the warning as grounds for a personal vendetta. Warnings are carefully thought out, and flaming, bating, threatening or harassing a staff member because of it will only lead to a harsher reprimand.

12. Links and recruiting to rival websites
If you have a website or forum that you want to promote the only way you are allowed to do this is putting the link in your signature. DO NOT post a recruiting thread or under ANY CIRCUMSTANCES Mass PM other users asking them to join. If you are contacted via PM please contact the staff and we will investigate.

13. Most important of all, have fun.
This stuff all boils down the golden rule anyway, do unto others as you would have them do unto you. If you don't want somebody doing it to you, then don't you do it to them.
