Necrontyr Online News: Rules Forum Now Added!: http://w11.zetaboards.com/Necrontyr_Online/forum/4212462/
Important Information, please read before posting
First Posts:
Hi, and welcome to Necrontyr Online. Because we’ve recently had some trouble with spambots, your first post on this forum needs to be approved by a mod or admin. This might mean that your post is not shown for a while, depending on the number of staff online.
Sorry for the inconvenience, but its only the first post anyway.
Hope to see you around!
EDIT: Please note that while it is just recommended to post in phase in first, posting multiple posts before your first one has been approved of WILL get you a warning.

I also recommend posting in Phase In first, because your post might not be noticed in a while if its hidden somewhere on the board...

To some people, The rules may seem kind of unfair, but it is to protect members and not to take away rights.

1. No Swearing, and if it is directed at someone, will count as flaming.
2. Profane speech on a forum is illegal, just as inappropriate pictures are
3. Spam. Spam is either advertising with posts on the forum, multi posting, or posting nonsense.
4. To be safe, please do not post a units or upgrades points cost.
5. Off topic stuff should go in the off topic section.
6. Flaming. Will result in a warning if reported or spotted by a mod or admin. 3 warnings will result in a temporary username ban. If a permanent ban is required, the user's e-mail will be blacklisted and their account will be terminated with all offending posts removed.
7. Second chances (if permanently banned) are acquired through a written confession followed by an apology IN THE SAME E-MAIL. Only one second chance is allowed, and the user is placed in limited privileges until 25 GOOD posts are made with NO flaming or smearing in the content.

Being a good forum contributor:

1.Read the forums rules and guidelines before posting for the first time.
2.Post constructive useful information.
3.Search the other posts to see if your topic is already covered.
4.Use a meaningful title for your thread. Make the subject line clear and informative
5.Be civil. Respect other users, and if you disagree with them, explain why. No 'trolling' - trolls are posts deliberately designed to provoke an angry response. That doesn't mean you can't be controversial, if you really mean it.
6.Stay on topic.
7.Ignore spammers, respond to them personally and not through the board, or report them.
8.Use plain text over HTML if you want your post to be readable by everyone.
9.In order to be understood by most people, use correct spelling, grammar and avoid slang unless you know the word or phrase will be understood by other members. Make sure you're understood, even by non-native English speakers.
10.Do not double post or cross post.
11.Act in a give and take manner; help others as often as or more than you ask for help.
12.Do not use all caps or SHOUT in your posts. In addition, one exclamation point is enough.
13.When replying to a post, do not quote more from the previous post than you have to.
14.Do not post new problems on someone else's thread and interrupt a topic of discussion.
15.Do not use someone else’s thread for a private conversation.
16.Watch your sense of humor, posts may be read by people from a variety of backgrounds and ages.
17.Do not use a huge and annoying signature.
18.Do not post any information that you want private. Posts should not contain personal, identifiable information or content embarrassing to others.
19.Do not post ”empty” or useless responses, such as just ”lol” or ”cool.” Only post responses when you have something to contribute..
20.Do not use words like “urgent” or “important” in your subject line, be patient.
21.If asking a question, provide as much information as possible, what you've already considered, where you've already read etc. And the most important if asking where to get help - tell us where are you located.
22.DO NOT MOCK newbies.
23.If someone else's post offends you, don't fight back online. It can be easy to sound rude without meaning to, especially if English is not your native language. However, if you really are troubled by the post, don't respond - take it to Moderator instead.
24.Simply put, treat others as you would be treated; respect them and their views, even if you disagree with them.
