The original rules!
There are really only three rules:

1. No Spamming!

2. Don't Be a Jerk!

3. No Porn/Warez/Viruses/Malware/Hate!


And please don't post source code for which you have no permission to post.

Disagreeing is okay, cussing is okay, getting heated is even okay - just be reasonable about it and tow it in when you feel like you're losing control.

The admins and mods shall do their best to hold themselves to the same standards as the members.

Your friendly neighborhood admin also reserves the right to ban for any reason, but will try his best not to do so unfairly.

Carry on! Grin

Wait, seriously? I could of sworn there was a rules thread before. Please tell me if I'm wrong but a quick search yielded nothing.
Plus, a few extra guidelines (not rules) to live and play nice, now that HD for PC is out, we have a new wave of members and I'd like to keep this place nice for all of our new spelunkers.

#4: Please, no drama.
This is a video games forum, not a soap opera.

#5: Stay on topic.
Keep the flow of the thread moving, we tend to get derailed a bit too often.

I really can't stress #2 and #4 enough, if you and another member are having a disagreement, keep it to the PMs. No one else wants to hear about it, and all arguing in public accomplishes is roping others in as well.

That's pretty much it, no one seems to really care about minor things like thread necro-ing and double posting as long as they are just and in moderation.

Happy spelunking!

I think we should stick with them unless Derek made another ones.

The thread with them was deleted, probably, during one of spam waves.

Although I agree with these rules, do you have authority to make new rules? Not trying to put you down, just asking.

Y'know, that's a very valid point that I hadn't really considered. How about we call them suggested guidelines instead? Tongue

Yes, do that.

Until you have approval of Derek, I'd say that rule-making is beyond your privileges.

I think all drama perfectly fit into "Don't be a jerk" and "No spamming".

It kind of does yea, but it's such a prominent issue sometimes that it certainly doesn't hurt to explicitly state it.

:/ But it's not just a couple of disgruntled mossmen, it's near full-scale arguments about reoccurring issues that others are just sick of seeing over and over.
I feel bad for the newcomers who float on over to this section and are hit in the face with all this drama.

HEY IM ONLY DRUNK WHEN POSTING MY ARGUMENTS! NOT COVERED IN MOSS THAT'L TEACH YA YOU ZZZzzzzzzz...
Seriously though i post on those things for the same reason KarjamP does when someone insults him, To defend himself.
If it was a rule however, that would change my mindset.

And Blaze I don't think there will be anymore seeing how... well you know.

Another suggested rule: Don't troll. I know you might say this falls under "Don't be a jerk" but trolling is rather different. By trolling I mean provoking people to get a reaction out of them. I dunno, just a suggestion.
