Yellow Jacket Militia Forums Code of Conduct

Post by YJCaptain on Sun 6 Dec 2015 - 15:14

As with all communities, online and not, there needs to be a set of precedents made clear in order to permit the flow of ideas and communication. This post shall explain what is to be expected of the members of this forum, while using this forum. Understand that.

General Conduct

Lurk around and read before posting! We cannot stress this enough. Each forum pretty much makes it clear from its name and description what is acceptable in there, or not. Be sure you have the appropriate forum before posting. If there is no forum dedicated to the topic you wish to discuss, use General Chatter, or you can make a request to an Admin to create a forum for the topic. Do NOT post porn or any "questionable" material in the Yellow Jacket Militia Forums (YJMF); if you would be uncomfortable viewing it at work, do not post it here. Keep all disgusting pics in you're own damn head or harddrive. Additionally, please check to see if your post is a redux (it has already been posted before by another forum member).

Before you post: Before posting, please ask yourself the following question: "Am I making a post which is either funny, informative, or interesting on any level?"

If you can answer "yes" to this, then please post. If you cannot, then refrain from posting. If you post anyway, the mods will probably gas your thread, automatically awarding you a 15-minute probation.

Before you reply: Before replying, please ask yourself the following question: "Does my reply offer any significant advice or help contribute to the conversation in any fashion?"

If you can answer "yes" to this, then please reply. If you cannot, then refrain from replying.

Posting Rules

Low Content Posts: Please do not make posts containing no content (ie, "first post," "hello, I'm new here," etc.). These just litter up the forums and upon obtaining numerous registered users, we need to mitigate and eliminate these as much as possible. If you do not like a thread, then just move on; replies consisting solely of trolling fall into this category. As a general rule, write as if you were speaking in real life to another human being, or an auditorium of people. Do not use any catchphrases, memes, internet slang, or any other crap that makes you look like a 12-year old puke.

Worthless Posts: We do not care if you are drunk or high; please do not inform us of either. Please do not register gimmick accounts and make posts as a gimmick, as they are not funny. Please do not post crap asking us to vote for you on some website, give you referrals for free iPods / flatscreens / spare tires, or any other semi-spam things. We will throw the ban hammer in your damn face.

Forum Fuckery: Don't fuck up the forums or any user on the forums. If you post a malicious link (any URL with spyware or code designed to annoy people) you will be beat the hell down with the ban hammer. Do not vote spam a thread with your friends because you don't like the person who posted it; this makes the voting feature useless. Do not make plans to annoy / destroy other forums.

Stay On Target: Try to use the appropriate thread tag for your post. This helps people find your thread and makes the forums more user-friendly. Do not use the mod-only tags or you will be automatically banned by the server. We can't, nor will we, do anything to help you concerning this. You've been warned, tough shit.

Contained Conflict: Keep all flaming wars and other arguments in their appropriate forum (the Basement).

Respect the Mods and Writers: The moderators are here to keep the forums safe, sane, and secure. They're like the fucking NCOs of this place. If they ask you to do something, it's likely in your best interest to do it. Please do not harass or intentionally annoy the mods or insult the writers. If you do not like the mods or the moderation, feel free to not post here.

Harass and Sass: If somebody is harassing you on the forums, discuss it with them over PM or email before contacting a mod about it. Flames and insults do not constitute harassment. Please do not post others' personal information (phone number, addresses, emails, etc.). Try to stay out of other peoples' personal lives as well. Keep in mind there's a good distinction between the Internet and real life.

Account Ability: Only one person may use a forum account. Account sharing is a bannable offense, so please keep your password secure.

Crazy Catchall: Please do not try to cleverly circumvent some rule listed here. These rules are general guidelines and are very flexible.

YJMF Freedoms: You cannot post illegal material, harass others by posting their personal information or nude photos, spam thread subject lines to break the forum tables, harass any admins or mods, or start forum invasions in the YJMF.

I Hate Speech: Offensive terms such as "faggot" or "nigger" may or may not be ban worthy material, based on context of the sentence. If they were meant as humor with absolutely no offensive slurs meant, the user may not be banned or probated. This rule is completely, 100% subjective and is based on the mod reading the post at the time. Use at your own peril. Don't bitch if you're smoked.

Account Inactivity

Accounts inactive for longer than a year may be deactivated. This rule has been created to combat fraud (folks using hijacked accounts of idiots who used their same YJMF forum name / password on various third party sites).

Image / File Rules

Keep all images work-safe. If you feel the need to post any pornographic or disgusting images, do it in YJMF. Please do not post any illegal (child porn, bestiality) images or else you will be banned and your IP address will be traced and sent to the appropriate authorities. Do not post naked pictures of yourself. As a general rule, ask yourself "would my mother and boss be comfortable viewing this image?" when posting here.

Image size and linking: Keep all images smaller than 800 pixels horizontal and 600 pixels vertical. Make sure all images are hosted on your own webspace. We do not approve of bandwidth leeching and forcing other people to pay for your images.

No warez: No warez, no cracks, no CD codes, no illegal programs that are used to either crack software or perform any malicious activity. Don't post links, ask for links to download, or otherwise discuss illegal copies of copyrighted works, including movies, books, software, etc. 45-second "sampler" mp3 files are acceptable, within context. ROMs are only allowed if they are out-of-print and unavailable for purchase.

Your sig file and you: Keep in mind that everybody on the forums has to see your sig file over and over every time you post. Please make your sig file under 30k in size with less than three lines of text. Do not use images larger than 400 pixels wide and 125 pixels high.

What If I Get Banned?

If you break a semi-minor rule, you will be smoked and put on Posting Probation, where you will not be allowed to post threads for a specified amount of time. If you break the rules again after being put on probation, you will more than likely be banned. If you are banned, then your name will appear in the Wall of Shame followed by the rule you broke. You may re-register your account unless you have been permanently banned, which is rarely done and only for serious cases (such as child pornography). If your email account matches that of your banned account, you can register your account again, but if they do not match then there is nothing we can do. This is to prevent fraud and user impersonation.

I Don't Agree With a Mod or Admin Decision!

If you would like to inquire about a particular mod or admin action, we welcome any questions in the Questions, Comments, and Suggestions forum. Please be civil, explain your point, and detail your opinion on it. You may question any mod or admin you like as long as you are not rude about it.

This Place Sounds Like a Waste!

If you do not agree with these rules, please do not register an account. If you are not sure about registering an account, please do not register one. The only people we want to register accounts are those who really want to be here and will respect the rules and other forum members. We reserve the right to ban anybody on the forums, especially furries, Scientologists, and Liberals. Anyone, actually.

This Stuff Annoys the Mods and Admins

Here are some general tips and posting pointers that the mods and admins do not like in general. We are including this list because we've noticed that trends and catchphrases light up the place and catch on like wildfire. Unlike those other forums out there, we despise these things and feel they hinder creativity and true humor.

  • Beginning a thread with "so," such as "So my parents got me pregnant today."
  • Catchphrases in general. Just because somebody else wrote something humorous does not necessarily mean if you do the same thing then you will be humorous.
  • Backseat moderating... We have mods and admins here. Do not act like an armchair admin. You will get fucking smoked.
  • Internet lingo or slang of any sort. Please do not act as if you are posting through AIM or Twitter (i.e., "Hi, u wan2 hang? Where r u?"). We're all able to speak proper English. Do so.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, about the rules, or anything these rules do not cover, then please contact a Moderator or Admin and address the issue to them respectfully.
