Policy FAQ/Update.

This is a list of offenses and their respective punishments. If you think anything should be added to the list, then please PM a moderator.

The Golden Rule

Due to recent events, we have decided that in extreme situations, FF staff reserves the right to ban any member who may be causing havoc upon the community and its members. FF mods and admin will never judge based upon their own personal opinions and feelings, and only after receiving many complaints from the community, and a mutual agreement between all FF staff members.

This is not directed at anyone specifically, but as a forewarning to those who attempt to find loopholes and attempt to ruin others time on the forums.

Infractions

3 infractions will result in a 7 day ban. 3 more infractions will result in a permanent ban. If you go a certain amount of time without getting any infractions, they will be removed, thus giving you a clean slate.

Creating alternate accounts during a temp ban

If you are caught making an alternate account while you are in a temp ban, the temp ban on your main account will be extended for another 7 days. You will get two chances. If you still continue to create alternate accounts, you will receive a permanent ban after the third alternate account created.

However, FiestaFan will give second chances. Your account will remain permanently banned, but you will be allowed to come back again after two months.

Flaming/Insulting other members

1st offense is usually a warning in the thread, but individual warnings can be issued also. Anything after that is an infraction.

Offensive language

Offensive language (e.g. swearing, vulgar words) on the forums is not appreciated. You may be given an infraction for it if moderators deem it inappropriate and/or excessive after discussion. Names are included. If a member is found to have made an account with an offensive name, they will have their name changed by an administrator and will be notified via e-mail.

Spam

Spamming on the forums (excluding guild forums and MoS) are not welcome here. Spamming includes:
  • "Mindless" comments that is not related to the topic of the thread
  • One or two word posts (probably with the exception of Roumen Port and commenting on art works)
  • Posts of the same thing without showing any more thoughts into it (other than repeating it)
  • Posts that contribute nothing to the thread.
Spamming in threads will result in the deletion of your posts and perhaps a warning. If spamming continues, it will result in an infraction.

Necroposting

1 month is considered a necropost. 1st time offense will just be a warning. 2nd offense will also be a warning. Any time after that will result in an infraction. We will not consider it a necro post if you contribute something to the thread. Guides are included.

ToS Violations

this includes pictures of it, how to do it, etc. Keep it all to PMs, please. This will result in immediate infraction.

Porn or images deemed inappropriate

Will result in a 7 day ban, or a lesser punishment depending on the severity of the image/link/etc.

Careful what you post. Some sites have it set so that when you post the image on a separate site, the image changes with the post.

Racism

Will result in a warning, and then an infraction if it continues.

Blacklisting

We have decided that blacklisting is not allowed here. Originally, we have specifically said that naming names are not permitted in All the Rage, but it doesn't make it any different if you post it in Screenshots section, so blacklisting is not allowed anywhere on the forums. Please censor the names of the people you're complaining about if you wish to post screenshots.

Posts will be edited and screenshots will be removed if they have no been censored. As usual, warning for first offense, and infractions from then on.

The Family Member/Friend excuse

We are no longer accepting this as a valid excuse. You are now responsible for the actions of anyone logging on to your account.

Plagiarism - Taking credit for someone else's work

You will be asked to remove the sig/ava/guide/artwork/etc within 2 days. If you fail to do so, then we will remove it for you and you will recieve an infraction.

Arcade Hacking

Recently, there have been a few incidents where members have "hacked" the arcade to obtain illegitimate scores. From now on, if any members are caught doing this, it will result in a one month ban from the arcade as well as an infraction. This includes the exploitation of bugs/glitches. Any methods used to obtain illegitimate scores is not allowed. Unexplained accidental glitches will also fall into the same category. Please PM any/all mod/admins ASAP if this does happen.

If you want to "test" out different methods to see whether it will work on FF Arcade, I'd recommend you to PM the Administrator (Entropy) or the moderators about this instead so we can look into the security issues, rather than going ahead to hack the games. Any hacked scores will also be removed.

Hacking games are not acceptable, and that goes for the Arcade too.


Selling of Accounts
Quote:
Thank you for contacting us about this issue.

When it comes to selling accounts, this is strictly forbidden by the Terms of Service. If an account is found to be sold, it will be terminated without compensation to the owner or buyer. Please pass this information along to the parties involved. I thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this matter.

Regards,

Outspark.com
Customer Service
The quote says all, you are not allowed to sell accounts.

Private servers

Linking to private servers are not permitted.


Reputation Comments
  1. Threads made about negative reppers (whether it'd be a thread raging at the neg reppers or a thread laughing at them for being sad) will be automatically closed.
  2. No flaming in reputation comments are allowed. Reputation comments are there for you to provide constructive criticism. This does not include calling people names such as "stupid" or "idiot" or "dumb" and the like.
  3. Rep comments are now moderated if reported. If you are caught flaming in rep, you will receive a warning for first offense. Any more offenses after first warning, you will be given an infraction. However, reps will not be removed.
  4. Report rep comments via Talk With The Mods section so all moderators can see it.
  5. We will NOT tell you who had flamed you in the derep. We will only tell you whether we have warned the derepper or not.
  6. Spam negative repping is also not tolerated. Doing so will also result in a warning/infraction.
  7. We will NOT moderate reps if the person getting flamed makes a thread or post about it in the first place. You are to report it if you want something done.


MSN/etc Conversations/Private Messages

If you feel the need to post MSN/etc conversations/private messages with/from another member, the other members featured in the conversation/message have every right to PM an admin/mod to ask for it to be removed if they wish to. Please remember that MSN/etc conversations and private messages are meant to be kept private. Though we have not decided to ban such posts from FF, please be considerate and think twice about the other members' privacy.

If we have been asked multiple times to remove/edit your post with such content, you will receive an infraction.


------------

Keep in mind that leniency can be shown.

Yeah, I thought the necro one was a bit harsh too. Maybe two warnings before n infraction since lots of times most people don't look at the dates, they just read the thread and think "Oh, let me say . . . ".

But, yeah, I guess if I goof I will have to refrain from posting so as to avoid too many.

@ Mods, how long till an infraction drops? Do they roll off after 3, 6 9 months of good behavior?

Do we get a PM if we get an infraction?

It expires after 10 days, and there is an automated PM sent out when you get one.
