    General Discussions rules

    Post  sky rs on Fri Jul 08, 2011 8:54 pm

    This list is non-exhaustive and ultimately it is up to discretion of the members of staff whether something is deemed appropriate for use on the forums or not.

    If any rules are broken, the punishment depends on the severity and repeat offenses, generally you will first receive a series of warnings. Then you may be moderated, which means that your posts must be approved by a moderator before they appear. Eventually, you may either be muted - which means all posting privileges are revoked - or even banned, meaning you cannot access the forum at all.

    Respect

    You must respect your fellow forum members, as well as moderators and administrators. Constructive criticism and feedback is allowed, however, flaming, insulting, being rude, swearing, etc. are not. Bullying on the forum is NOT permitted!

    Inappropriate content

    As we are a forum for people of all ages, content must be restricted. Therefore, we do not allow the posting of pornographic or indecent images or videos (this includes inside your avatars and signatures). Links to pornographic or indecent sites are not permitted. If in doubt as to whether something is suitable, check with a moderator or administrator first!

    Keep discussion family-friendly: we are a forum for people of all ages!

    Illegal content - such as illegal downloads, warez, torrents, etc. are also not permitted.

    Misleading links

    Misleading links are not permitted. Links should go where they say - faking a link to a rick roll (or similar) site is not permitted and against the rules.

    Impersonation

    Impersonation of somebody you are not is not permitted. This includes normal members, as well as forum moderators and administrators. If you are caught impersonating somebody, the punishment is usually severe.

    Advertising other websites

    Advertising other RuneScape private server websites are not allowed. No links may be posted. However, most other links are allowed so long as the advertising doesn't become spam. There are some exceptions, e.g. indecent sites (see rules above for details about these).

    Pay per click/referral websites

    Posting links to pay per click (PPC)/referral websites is not permitted. These types of websites are generally scams and not real. Therefore links to them are not permitted. Any links to these will be removed immediately, including in signatures!

    Releasing private information

    Private information of other members must NOT be released without their permission. This includes real name, age, pictures, address, phone number, email, private messages, etc. The risk of paedophiles in the RSPS community is probably pretty high compared to other communities, so if you do give it away, be careful! NEVER arrange to meet somebody you meet online, no matter how trustworthy or honest they seem.

    Encouraging other members to break rules

    Encouraging other members to break rules is an offence and is not allowed.

    Posting in different languages

    As the moderation is all done in English, posting in different languages is generally not permitted unless an accurate translation to English is also given. This is so we know people are not talking about subjects which are against the rules.

    Spamming/thread titles

    Thread titles must be relevant to the thread. Spamming, such as short answers or posting gibberish, is not permitted. Double posting is not allowed - instead, edit your post! Remember to keep your replies on-topic.

    Spamming includes quoting another user's message without adding anything in your post. If you agree, simply putting 'I agree with you' is enough - but do not leave your message empty!

    Forum-specific rules

    Please be aware that some forums have specific rules, e.g. account requests and ban appeals!

    Ignoring staff members

    If a member of staff warns you and continue breaking rules, this is an offence and you will be punished.
