AU-GN Forum Rules

1 post in this topic

AUSTRALIAN-GAMING NETWORK FORUM RULES 

These rules are put in place to allow AU-GN to remain a fun and family friendly place. A constructive, respectful and welcoming attitude is required from all members at all times in both forum posts and private conversations. The forum rules are a general guide of what we expect from members, and not an exhaustive list. Forum staff will sometimes make decisions independent of the rules, which is perfectly allowed. 


Rules

Do

  • Be nice and polite - All members deserve to be treated with respect. Positive and polite posts create an environment all members will feel comfortable in.
  • Post in relevant section(s) - Posting in the most relevant section ensures that members also interested in the topic will be able to see it and conversation can take place. If not, a moderator will most likely move it for you.
  • Remain on topic - Replies to a thread not relevant to the topic of discussion are not allowed and you should create a new thread to start new discussions.
  • Report content - Reported content is sent to staff members for review. If someone is breaking the rules, reporting their content is very helpful for the staff members to get rid of.
  • Think before posting - Sensible, well thought out and legible posts help other members understand what is being explained.
  • Meet the prerequisites when applying for staff - These requirements are set for a reason. Failing to follow them and applying anyway will warrant an instant deny.
  • Post in ban appeals/ban requests and staff applications - If you have a constructive piece of information that contributes to the appeal/request/application. In contrast, do not post if you are not contributing anything relevant to the table, or your post will be hidden and you will receive a warning.
  • Help us make AU-GN better - We are keen to hear all of your ideas on ways that we can improve the community. There are discussion boards located around the forums where you are able to share your suggestions on how you think we can improve AU-GN. Please don't hold back.

Do Not

  • Excessively use profanity or post NSFW content - We attempt to keep AU-GN family-friendly, but we are aware that use of profanity cannot be completely negated in a community mainly comprised of teenagers. Excessive use of profanity, or any NSFW images will cause a loss of posting privileges for a temporary amount of time.
  • Flame or provoke - Do not insult or flame other members on the forum. Similarly, do not post with the intention to provoke another member.
  • Spam - Spamming is something that provides no value to the discussion, or a thread that creates nuisance for others. The most common spam on this forum are people aimlessly "+1"ing people's applications. Please provide a detailed reason why you're +1ing someone.
  • Double post - We understand that sometimes the forum messes up and your post goes through twice, in which case simply report the second one for reason "double-post" and let a staff member remove it for you. Also report other members double-posts if you see them.
  • Engage in illegal activity - AU-GN is located in Australia, which means the Australian Federal Laws must be followed at all times. 
  • Make many posts on the same thread - If you have more to say and no one has replied, edit your last post rather than making another post. If you do this it is counted as spam.
  • Shit Post - Do not post on old threads or post irrelevant replies to threads. Remain on topic at all times in current threads. If it is 3 months old or more, you should not be posting on it as it is considered obsolete. You may make another topic with the same subject matter however.
  • Advertise - Advertising of any kind is strictly prohibited. If you wish to advertise, use a service that allows you to do so, don't post threads on the AU-GN forum.

Staff Applications

All people wanting to apply for a staff position must follow the application prerequisites as a template if you are making a thread, or go through forms > staff applications where it is a simple enter into the field format then submit which will create the thread for you. Some of the requirements we deem as preferences, and not exactly requirements (such as forum posts), however we highly encourage applicants to follow all of the stated requirements for each rank. You must follow the format when it comes to answering the given questions though, such as the 200 word minimum for "Explain why you are applying for a staff role at AU-GN."

When replying to staff applications, please use the Applying and Replying guide to ensure that you provide a solid critique and remain civil at the same time. You are not allowed to insult members and if you see posts that are not appropriate on staff applications or other places around the forums, please report them by following these steps:

How to report a post:

We encourage you to report any and all posts that you believe are in violation of the rules. You will not get in trouble for falsely reporting any content, in fact it can, in some instances, help us gauge which rules are effective and which are not/should be implemented. So please, don't hesitate to press report, even if you're not sure that a rule has been broken.

Support

Any questions or concerns regarding the rules should be directed toward management via the Support discussion board.

 

**Staff members, DO NOT edit the post and add rules without the go-ahead from either myself, Spextic (Whip-Tide) or Derf.
