Starcraft2forum.org - Rules To participate in these forums, you must agree to the following rules. This is needed to help keep the forums a safe and fun place to be in! The following RULES are now arranged from the most important at the top to the least important at the bottom. Breaching the rules higher on this list will trigger the most severe penalties. RULE No.1 No posting offensive links or images. This means NO porn. No disturbing, offensive, overly violent images or links to images allowed. This will result in an immediate BAN. RULE No.2 There is to be absolutely NO discriminating against somebody due to race, religion, gender, cultural background or sexual preference. This will result in an immediate BAN. RULE No.3 Offensive language, personal attacks, or being abusive to other members will result in a warning and mineral penalty the first time round, and a BAN the following time. Treat others how you would like to be treated. RULE No.4 One account per person. Any member that creates multiple accounts for themselves will be warned, have their fake accounts removed, and facing a possible BAN. RULE No.5 We do not condone piracy, warez, cracks, etc. Do not post links or discuss these issues here. Those who breach these terms will be facing real life legal actions on their own. RULE No.6 Do not come in here just to advertise your own site. You may only advertise in the Space Junk Board or post a link in your signature. But if you are not adding anything to the community, you may be removed. RULE No.7 DO NOT SPAM Important rule. A response with only a few words is considered spam. If you don't have anymore to post than 2 words, then don't post it! You create unnecessary posts that slow the forums down. Posts that have no meaning are also considered spam. Spamming will result in mineral penalties. RULE No.8 DO NOT DOUBLE POST There is an Edit button where you can edit your last post to add things. Posting consecutively is not permitted, and will result in mineral penalties. The only exception is when a member cannot edit their last post due to a Moderator's edit. In that case the member is permitted to make a new post only if it is constructive. RULE No.9 DO NOT CREATE DUPLICATED TOPICS Do not create a new topic with the same content to an existing topic. Duplicated topics will be locked, and removed. Have a browse through the forum, or do a search and see if a topic already exist. Duplicating topics will result in mineral penalties. RULE No.10 DO NOT QUOTE MORE THAN YOU TYPE Users that constantly quote text just to get minerals will end up losing a lot lot more when they get penalized. Do not quote large amounts of text. If you need to quote, delete all the parts of the quote that are unnecessary. You do not need to quote multiple quotes within quotes within quotes. Just quote the last person and edit out everything else. Over quoting will result in mineral penalties. Quoting a post that was written right before you is also unacceptable as it is totally unnecessary and is considered spam. RULE No.11 The Administrator and Moderators reserve the rights to take action against any member performing undesirable activities that are not listed in the Forum Rules. RULE No.12 Moderators are not responsible for mediating power-level discrepancies, except for those including constant power-down-vendettas. Your power level is representative of how people view you on the forums, and your actions will dictate how people regard you. It is not a Moderator's concern if you believe a power down to be "unwarranted." RULE No.13 Do not post listings or advertisements for any products that would violate Blizzard's ToS. This includes selling Beta keys, posting cracks to games, or other Terms of Service violations. Note: Exemptions from the rules do apply from time to time. But generally speaking, please abide by the Rules at all times. Last but not least, HAVE FUN! This game is hugely anticipated. If we just follow these simple rules, this will be one of the friendliest, largest, and hopefully the BEST StarCraft community on the internet. If you have any specific forum related questions, please post in the Questions and Feedback Board or send a PM to a moderator. They will be more than happy to help.
