    Rules - Please Read

    Post by James on Sun Feb 08, 2009 5:06 am

    Here on the Young Parents forum, there are a few rules that must be followed. If anyone is found to be breaking these rules that person will recieve a warning. If you continue to break the rules you will recieve a temporary ban and then a permanant ban.

    1. Be Responsible

    You are responsible for your own account. Do not let anyone use your account at any time, as you are responsible for the things posted on your account.
    2. Do Not Mini-Mod

    If you see a post that violates any of the below rules, you should use the "report" button below each post in the bottom right hand corner. This will immediately notify all mods that someone is possibly breaking a rule, and they will handle it. If you reply to a post that violates the below rules, telling the person "You should not be doing so-and-so," you will be warned. This is known as "mini-modding" and is not allowed. The best thing to do is use the report feature.
    3. Do not post in or "revive" dead threads

    You may not post in a thread older than two weeks old, unless it is a stickied thread, your own selling thread or someone's reputation thread. If you wish to revive any other thread legally, approach me (Admin/James) or any moderator by PM requesting for permission. It's best to approach me, as I never ignore PMs that aren't stupid. Violators will receive a warning.
    4. Do not offend others

    Do not bash, insult, or cuss in your posts or to other members. If a post is highly offensive, as deemed by any moderator, the offender will be permanently account and IP banned so that there will be no access to this forum. Violators will receive a warning.
    5. Do not spam

    Spamming is one of the most common offenses. Internet forum spam is defined by Wikipedia as "the posting of advertisements, abusive, or unneeded messages on Internet forums." On our forum, abusive messages are called "flaming," and advertising is simply advertising. Our forum regards spam as unneeded messages. An example of spam would be something irrelevant to the topic. Spamming includes posting "Favorite" threads ("What's your favorite _____?") and meaningless topics. No intelligent discussion can come from a SPAM topic. Violators will receive a warning.
    6. Do not have multiple accounts

    Each member is allowed only one login account. Registering with multiple accounts is not allowed. Violators will receive a warning and have the accounts merged; more serious cases (claiming to be two different people, or giving oneself positive references in the selling/buying forum) will be IP banned on the spot. Rule does not apply if your partner wants an account, just notify a moderator before they join.
    7. Thread Bumping

    Do not bump without valid reason or post more than once in a row.
    Posting in the same thread consecutively - "double posting" - is not tolerated. When you make a post, if you have something to add, click on the edit button at the bottom of the post and make any amendments there. Violators will receive a warning. If no one has replied to your thread for at least 3 hours, you may post again at no penalty.
    8. Do not post inappropriate content

    As this is a forum about young parents and children. As such, posting any inappropriate content, in any form, will not be tolerated. This includes obscene images, videos or text. Inappropriateness is determined at the discretion of the moderating team. Penalties for breaking this rule depend on the severity of the offense, from a warning at best to permanent ban at worst.
    9. Do not post images that may affect people prone to seizures

    In order to cater to anyone with problems with flashing colors, the posting of rapidly flashing images is no longer allowed. Violators will receive a warning.
    10. Use proper spelling and grammar

    You should say, "Hi, how are you today?," not "hi, ow r u 2dai?" Using poor grammar and spelling often labels people as "n00bs," and less people pay attention to them. When many members do this, the same consequence applies to the entire forum.
