New GMod and a Reminder
« on: September 30, 2012, 09:47:40 pm »
Hey all, this is a quick announcement to tell you a couple of things.


First, we've welcomed a new GMod to the team- Ergo Deus. I'm sure you'll all join me in welcoming him to the team, he'll do an excellent job!



Secondly, I'd like to remind people that if you want to question a mod or admin decision, as you are of course entitled to do, the right way to do so is to PM us. Don't use threads to do so, as that will result in infraction points.


I'd like to reiterate that we genuinely want the forums to be a good place to be, to improve your gaming experience and to make things more enjoyable. There are rules in place to make sure that can happen, so please do have a read and follow them.

In case you're not sure where to find them, I'll C+P them for you here:


Quote
Rules which apply to all forums



• Multiple accounts will be permanently banned and information passed on to eRepublik admins.
• Posts containing nudity, pornography, offensive images or copyrighted content IN ANY FORM is not tolerated and may result in a permanent ban.
• Racism and otherwise offensive posting is not appropriate and will result in infraction points being added to your profile.
• Jokes about dead forum members or forum member's family are not permitted.
• The publishing of other people's private and/or personal information without consent will be investigated and may result in a permanent ban.
• The report function must be used in order to report a clear breach of the forum rules. Its use for any other purpose will result in infraction points being added to your profile.
• Posts must not be used to backseat moderate, only specifically designated moderators/admins may moderate. In addition, posts made to criticise the forum staff will be removed and will result in infraction points being added to your user profile.

Rules which apply to publicly viewable forums


• Posts may contain mild language, however excessive swearing is not permitted
• Posts may not contain spam of any sort. Spam is defined as useless, examples are irrelevant responses, advertising scams such as WOW gold, excessive posting or bumping.
• Posts may contain images, etc - BUT, must be relevant and remember this is not 4chan!
• Posts insulting other members of the forums are not permitted, all other members of the forums must be respected.
• Topic titles should be relevant or risk the chance of being edited.
• Posts should be placed in relevant forums
• Necroing of old posts is not permitted unless there is a particularly good reason
• Posts may not contain excessive use of colours, smileys, bold text or large fonts.

There are more here, but those are the main ones.



These three in particular:

• The publishing of other people's private and/or personal information without consent will be investigated and may result in a permanent ban.
• The report function must be used in order to report a clear breach of the forum rules. Its use for any other purpose will result in infraction points being added to your profile.
• Posts must not be used to backseat moderate, only specifically designated moderators/admins may moderate. In addition, posts made to criticise the forum staff will be removed and will result in infraction points being added to your user profile.

seem to have been tripping some people up recently, so please do make sure you're not breaking any of the rules.



Happy camping,


Talon and the team,

your friendly neighbourhood admins.

• PM's may not be used to insult/abuse any members, such reports will be investigated and will result in infraction points being added to your user profile.

Try and make your PMs to us civil, its the proper way to deal with issues, but its not a license to abuse moderation staff. Not that every reply to an infraction I get is both insulting and abusive  :roll:

Everything you say is boring and incomprehensible, but that alone doesn't make it true.
Quote from: Professor Bob Boblo
He had spent his whole life despised and hated for the mere triviality of wearing dresses and make-up despite possessing a (rather magnificent) penis, and this persecution had fostered within him both a desperate yearning to be loved and appreciated, and an iconoclastic desire to subvert and destroy the odious traditions on which society was built.
