Forum rules - 07/27/2003

These Rules are subject to Change as warranted by the Moderators/Admins of these forums.

By registering as a member with these forums, you accept the terms and conditions of these forums and any changes made at any time.


    Basic Rules

      A. Users must enter a valid e-mail address to remain verified and registered with the forums. 1 person = 1 account. And just so you know, when you give a false e-mail address, it's bounced back to us. Those with false e-mails and dual accounts will be deleted when found!

      B. Members are asked to not act as "back seat moderators". Please leave the moderating to the moderators of these forums. If members note an issue which contravenes something in this policy document they are welcome to bring it to the attention of a Moderator by using a PM (Private Message). Only do this if a moderator has not replied within 6 hours. Members who consistenly "act" as moderators may be warned.

      C. The moderators reserve the right to edit or remove any post at any time. The determination of what is construed as indecent, vulgar, spam, etc. as noted in these points is up to Moderators and NOT the users.

      D. Members should remember this board is aimed at a general audience. Posting pornographic or generally offensive text, images, links, etc. will not be tolerated and will lead to a warning.

      E. Members should post in a way that is respectful of other users. This means RESPECT your fellow community members and try and be polite. Flaming or abusing users in any way will not be tolerated and will lead to a warning.

      F. Posts are to be made in the relevant forum. Users are asked to read the forum descriptions before posting and to Try to stay on topic within each Thread. Users consistently posting to the wrong forum and/or straying too far off topic, may be given a warning (see policing below).

      G. Members should post in a way which is consistent with "normal writing". That is users should not post excessive numbers of emoticons, large, small or coloured text, etc. Similarly users should not SHOUT or use excessive punctuation (e.g. ! and ?) in topic titles or posts. Please refrain from using foul language. "L33t" speak is also in poor taste. Users consistently abusing this will be warned.

      H. Members are asked to respect the copyright of other users, sites, media, etc. No Pirating of Software. Please do not post links to software that would be in violation of any copyright. Users linking to or asking for information on warez, crackz, etc. or re-printing material without permission will receive a warning and their post will be removed.

      I. Members should respect the bandwidth of other users and sites. The use of inline ([img][/img]) image tags pointing to data stored on third party systems for which the user has not received permission to link to may be removed.

      J. Members should use an appropriate, descriptive title when posting a new topic. Examples of bad titles include; "Help me!", "I'm stuck!", etc. Examples of good titles include; "Help with adding new sprites", "I'm stuck on Spear Level 4", etc.

      K. Spam is not tolerated here under any circumstance. This includes offering hosting services (charged and free), installation services, etc. Users posting spam will be warned and their post removed. See specific item on spam and 3rd party linking for more information.

      NOTE: The above forum rules where applicable also apply to private messaging. Abuse of the private messaging system may lead to warnings (as above) and/or the revokation of private messaging.



    Signatures


      A. Signatures may contain up to three lines of text (of small or normal size) and no more than 120 characters in length.

      B. Text sizes should be between 9 and 12 (small and normal). Text in signatures is subject to the same conditions as posts with respect decency, warez, emoticons, etc.

      C. Links are permitted in signatures. Such links may be made to non-DHW material, commercial ventures, etc. Links are included within the text and image limits above. Links to offensive sites may be subject to removal.

      Users abusing these rules will be warned.

    Avatars

      A. Users are permitted to utilise a gallery avatar or to link to one of their own (subject to previous points on misuse of bandwidth). User defined avatars are to be no larger than 90 pixels square, contain no animation, contain no image which attempts to portray the user as having an official status here (e.g. mimiking ranks or copying avatars of admins/mods), may not exceed 6KB in filesize and have a consistently high availability (i.e. links to images on slow servers or those prone to failure may be removed).

      B. Avatars are subject to the same conditions as posts with respect decency, etc.

      Users abusing these rules will be warned and/or may lose their avatar privileges.

    Policing

      A. DHW operates a three strike policy. Users will be warned a maximum of three times for any and all offences in a three month period. If the need arises for a fourth warning a temporary ban will be put in place of between 1 to 7 days.

      B. Arguing with Moderators after having received a warning will lead to an immediate additional warning. Should this exceed three strikes a temporary ban will be put in place as above.

      C. Users who feel they have been unfairly warned are welcome to contact the relevant Moderator, e.g. if warned by a moderator you should contact the same Moderator. If they feel you were treated badly they may remove a warning. Their decision is final.

      D. Any attempt to circumvent a temporary ban will lead to that ban being made permanent. Circumvention includes re-registering under a non-banned username, changing IP addresses to evade an IP ban, registering a new email account of evade an email ban. Circumvention includes posting as an anonymous user.

      E. An exception to the three strike rule applies when users contact Moderators personally (via any method) and post insulting, indecent or vulgar material. Such users may be subject to an immediate permanent ban.

      F. Permanent bans are a last resort and thought is given before implementing them. While DHW may consider lifting permanent bans from time to time this is a rare occurence.


The basic principal of these forums is for people to have a nice place to visit. Here they can talk about things related to wolfenstein, in the appropriate forums. The whole thing boils down to everyone trying to get along with one another and share information and ideas.

Hopefully, by following the rules, we can build a strong, coheasive community of people enjoying a common love of the Wolfenstein 3d game and those others that it spawned.

If you have any questions on these rules, please respond in the "Speak to US" section of the board...

Enjoy the Forums..

Additional

To reduce database size, the following actions are being taken:

Account Status: Users who have not visted the forums within 150 days are removed due to inactivity (exceptions may be made).

Please remember -> 1 ACCOUNT PER USER - See the rules above!
If you have more than 1, it will be found and will be removed in time.
Please notify the admins if you are one of these people and save us the hassel of tracking you down.

Thanks!
