Community Rules updated

Recommended Posts

Steven P.    14,699

I have just updated the forum rules to reflect the amount of personal attacks and flaming going on more specifically in the Real World Issues forums

  • No Graphic Material of either a macabre or pornographic nature. Racism and/or sick jokes is not permitted. Any posts or links to such content will not be tolerated. Completely reworded & updated
  • No Flaming. Personal attacks such as flaming, instigating "flame bait", verbal abuse or mocking of members in forum posts are not tolerated at Neowin. Such posts will be deleted on sight and moderated accordingly. If you are a long standing member, act like one. Lead by example and assist other newer members rather then attacking them. We look upon our veteran members to use this opportunity to teach the newer members the appropriate way to use these message boards. New Rule Added
  • Neowin is not a support forum for affiliates or related sites, comparing, judging the content/value or raising the opinion of other sites, recruiting members or staff, bad mouthing (or victimizing) & negative discussion about non/affiliate site issues on our forums is neither wanted or tolerated. Addition is bolded
  • Neowin requires that members respect the decision of moderators. Threads and posts questioning the actions or decisions of forum moderations will be deleted on sight, and the appropriate action taken (up to and including forum bans) against the thread starter and/or participants. However, as a member you reserve the right to PM any moderator or administrator regarding action taken at Neowin. New Rule Added

The community rules are in place to try to ensure that forum moderators have a common set of guidelines to enforce and that members understand what is socially acceptable to this community. We understand that the recent events in the Real World have heightened tensions between members with different opions but we won't allow open attacks upon members or groups.

Great additions/updates, Neobond.

A few of those were sorely needed, IMHO. :pinch:

Fine that you update the community rules, but you should rather work on the way they're enforced. I can give you a lil' rant about that if you wish!

I'm sure they'd be more welcome as a PM than a topic :)

well id say good additions. but i think you may have misworded one slightly :p

technically this says "no flaming will not be tolerated" and the like. so i believe youd want to cut out the "No"

but its good to keep things like this updated. and i do like the part about long standing members. just dont go out there and say that if youre new you can act like it cause that would give us all many headaches ;)

I dont think its a misword.. it should be No Flaming: etc etc.

so that comma basically has to be a colon or a period.
