BE WISE!
  • Ask questions in appropriate sections and post wisely!
    • We will move topics that do not belong in that section.
    • Intelligent posts usually gives a good image of yourself and earns respect of other forumers and/or reputation points.
    • Do NOT abuse the post count system by posting few words comments meant simply to raise your post count! Also, do NOT revive old and dead/inactive threads for the same reason. Abusive posts will be deleted.
  • Help whenever you can, even if you are not a Mod. Actually, that's how we select our staff members.
  • We have to be a little strict now with this forum to keep it safe, fun, and a better place for everyone.
  • Please do not look at us as a scary bunch of Admins or Mods! We are really really crazy and a fun bunch.


Warning/Ban System

  • You will be given points for Warning/Infraction (usually 1 point). Certain warnings or infractions will expire.
    Upon collecting 5 Warning/Infraction points that haven't expire, the forum will auto-ban your account. Certain ban will expire too depending on the severity of the offense.


    Please note the following:
    1) Warning is the same as reminder, and will appear in your profile page which only you and the staff will see it. It does not carry any Warning Point value. It is for the record of the staff.
    2) Infraction means you get Warning Points. These Warning Points can expire depending on situation. It will appear in your profile page which only you and the staff will see it. It is for the record of the staff and please be sure not to accumulate too many 'active' Warning Points, it will lead you to being banned temporarily or permanently.

Warning/Ban Appeals and Reporting:
  • You may appeal to Staff email if you think there's a mistake somewhere for some reason. However, please note that if you really did do or say something that's against the rules, the warning and ban will stay eventhough you think you are right. This is a forum that has its own set of rules and please do not compare with another site, we are all different. Rules are there for a reason. So I hope you will instead embrace it, and just don't do it again as we usually give friendly reminders.
  • We never want to use them as a way to punish or embarass you, treat warnings as reminder and temporary ban as a break from the forum to think things over. That's why all Warning Points are never shown to public. Only you yourself and Mods/Admins can see them as a note.
  • Permanent ban is only issued when we have decided that you keep on breaking the rules or refuse to listen to a staff reminder, or if it's age issue.
  • If you still think you are right after everything and hates the staff decisions, I think this forum is not for you. If you really love the forum or some people in the forum, you will know what to do.
