forum rules

 

Welcome to the Forums. To ensure that your stay/visit here is as pleasant and constructive as possible, please read and follow this Code of Conduct.

 

These Forums are intended to provide our members with a friendly environment to exchange information, get the latest news, share community-created content and to interact with other members of the community. The forums also provide a place to report site issues directly to the administrator/moderator. This Code of Conduct explains the behavior that is expected of all community members. Your use of these Forums constitutes acceptance of this Code of Conduct.

 

The administrators/moderators have full discretion to address any behavior that they feel is inappropriate. Your membership and participation on these forums is a privilege and not a right. IMGAMINGHERE reserves the right to suspend or terminate your access to these forums and/or to the site itself at any time for reasons that include, but are not limited to, your failure to abide by this Code of Conduct, Privacy Policy, and our Terms of Service.

 

The administrators/moderators of our forums will handle posts that break this Code of Conduct and are inappropriate as they see them. However, we cannot review every post that is made on the forums instantly. Each post expresses the individual view of the author and IMGAMINGHERE cannot be held responsible for the content of any post. Please report any inappropriate post using the contact page for review by a member of our moderation team.

 

This Code of Conduct outlines specific examples. There will always be incidents that will be handled on a case-by-case basis by the administrator/moderator. IMGAMINGHERE has the sole right to interpret and apply this Code of Conduct to any specific circumstance and situation, and its judgment is final.

 

 

Our Principles:

 

  • Keep it clean

  • Keep it civil

  • Be polite

  • Stay on topic

  • Share your knowledge

  • Report posts for removal if they violate these standards

 

By using these forums you agree to the following rules and guidelines, which will help develop a friendly environment in our Forums:

 

  • Read the forums and use the search function before posting. There is a good possibility that your question has already been asked and there may be solutions.

  • Stay on topic and do not hijack another member's thread

  • Post your message once in the appropriate forum section and nowhere else. Duplicate posts/threads will be locked and/or removed without warning.

  • Use a relevant thread title that clearly indicates the subject of the thread.

  • The official languages of this forum are English and Spanish. Posts in any other languages will be removed.

  • Do not post in all capital letters, "leetspeak", use excessive punctuation, alternating lower case and capital letters, etc. Please refrain from these and other similar attention-seeking tactics to draw attention to your post.

  • Do not spam. This includes bumping posts any earlier than 24 hours if you are the last poster in the thread, making posts just quoting other posts, or making posts that lack content.

  • Be respectful to everyone.

  • Do not post any private messages that you may have had.

  • Do not use profanity, insults, or personal attacks.

  • Do not attempt to call-out IMGAMINGHERE or any other moderator. Doing so will not get an answer to your question sooner and will result in post removal without warning.

  • Do not engage in personal attacks against IMGAMINGHERE or any other moderator. Please note that abuse against IMGAMINGHERE or any other moderator in forum posts or private messages may result in forum account termination.

  • Do not submit "trolling" posts or threads. We define "trolling" as posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages with the intent of provoking overly strong, negative, and/or emotional responses, to mislead other users, to derail threads, and/or engaging in personal attacks on another user.

  • Do not engage in personal attacks against forum members. Posts that attack another member, single out a member for ridicule will be removed without notice and further actions may be taken by IMGAMINGHERE or the Moderation Team.

  • Do not debate the administrator's/moderator's decisions or actions. Threads or posts designed to announce, appeal, or contest your own or another member's temporary or permanent ban, either in Twitch chat or on the forums, will be removed without notice.

  • Do not post about locked, deleted, or otherwise moderated threads or posts. Moderation happens for a reason. If you have yet to see a comment on a thread locked by a member of the Moderation Team, please wait for the comment to appear and do not post a new thread on the subject.

  • The forums have a word filter for a reason. Circumventing the word filter with creative spelling, etc. will result in your post being edited or removed without warning.

  • Do not post "I demand an answer" threads, conspiracy threads, or comments about circumventing the rules.

  • Do not make alternate forum accounts. Members are permitted to post with only one account per person. Posting on more than one account will get the alternate account(s) permanently banned and the member will be subject to discipline at the discretion of the administrator/moderator.

  • Do not post about a compromised account.

  • Do not post legal action threads. Using the forums or PMs to encourage, promote, endorse, or incite any kind of legal action against the company or any individual is strictly prohibited. Such content will be removed and the author will be permanently banned.

 

By using these forums you further agree not to take any action, upload, post, email, or otherwise transmit any content on these forums that:

 

  • Infringes or violates any third party rights.

  • Violates any law or regulation.

  • Transmits real-life personal information about other members or staff.

  • Insults other members, staff or groups of peoples.

  • Involves the use of illegal drugs or performing illegal activities.

  • Is harmful, threatening, abusing, harassing, tortuous, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libelous, invasive of another's privacy, hateful, or is racially, ethnically, or otherwise objectionable.

  • Insults any aspect of sexual orientation pertaining to themselves or other members.

  • Promotes hatred of any kind, including that based on nation, race, religion, age, sex, gender-orientation, or culture.

  • Refers to violent sexual acts or real life violent actions, pornography, inappropriate references to human anatomy or bodily functions, or content which refers to violence in any capacity.

  • Advertises any businesses, organizations or websites. This includes "junk mail", "spam", "chain letters", "pyramid schemes", or any other form of solicitation.

  • That discusses any cheats, hacks, viruses, or other computer programming routines that are intended to damage, interfere with, surreptitiously intercept or expropriate any system, data, or personal information. If you would like to legitimately report such materials then please contact us here.

  • Attempts to gain access to a password, other account information, or other private information. Remember: our staff will NEVER ask for your password. Do not reveal your password or share your account with anyone.

 

Actions taken against offending posts/individuals will be dealt with by IMGAMINGHERE or forum moderators and the user may or may not be notified of the action taken against the post.

 

This Code of Conduct is based on common sense. The rules are intended to keep our Forums a useful, pleasant, and constructive place for members to interact with other members and with IMGAMINGHERE. We ask for your cooperation and support in creating a healthy, constructive place to achieve these goals.

 

Thank you for being a part of our community! We welcome suggestions and feedback and have a forum section dedicated to that.
