PostSubject: The Rules Of The Pika Club   Wed Jan 06, 2016 8:34 pm

With every great community, there are rules and laws that ensure people coexist peacefully. These forums are no different. There are boundaries to what is and what is not allowed. These rules are in place to ensure that The Pika Club continues to be a friendly place where members can learn and share information on a variety of different Pokemon, games, strategies.

The rules of
The Pika Club are as follows:

Advertising
-Advertising or soliciting other members to buy, sell, or purchase any products or services through this discussion forum is not permitted. Chain letters and junk mail are also strictly prohibited. If you violate this rule, depending on what was advertised, your account maybe Ban without warning. *Note* Advertising for another group or website is strictly prohibited and doing so will result in a PERMANENT IP BAN.

Flaming
-Material that is knowingly defamatory, illegal, abusive, threatening or harassing, is strictly prohibited. As with anything, everybody, as members, should use good common sense when posting. Posts containing personal attacks on another user will be edited or deleted with no warning or consent. Further action may occur pending Administrator/Moderator judgment.

Insubordination

- Members will at all time respect the authority of all Administrators and Moderators. Insubordination will not be tolerated. If you violate this rule in the chat you will be kicked from the chat. If on reentry to the chat you continue to violate this rule you will be temporarily ban from the chat. Further misbehaviors on the forums may result in a temporary site ban pending Administrator/Moderator judgment.

Respect Everybody
-Treat everybody with respect. Do not hold anybody to a lower standard then yourself. No one is better then anybody else. We are all equal. If you violate this rule, you will receive a warning.
Further action may occur pending Administrator/Moderator judgment.

Harassment
- You will not harass anybody in anyway or treat anybody in an unfriendly matter in anyway. If somebody request you "stop" or "knock that/something off" then you are to quit. Failure to do so will result in a warning.
Further action may occur pending Administrator/Moderator judgment.

Right to Privacy
-You will not violate a person's privacy by publishing private and/or personal information against another member's will. If you violate this rule, your account may be automatically banned without prior warning.


Spamming
-Topics/posts that are repetitive or just complete nonsense will be deleted at the discretion of the moderators and administrators. Please do not double post on a topic or post more then one topic with the same or similar message. If you violate this rule, you will receive a warning.
Further action may occur pending Administrator/Moderator judgment.

Racism
-Topics/posts containing such will be edited or deleted accordingly. If you violate this rule, your account may be automatically banned without prior warning.

Porn
-Material that is sexually or otherwise obscene is not permitted on these forums. Topics/posts/Chat-Box Messages containing such will be deleted on sight. If you violate this rule, your account WILL be automatically banned and your I.P Address WILL be nuked without prior warning. NO EXCEPTIONS!!

Cross-posting
- Posting the same question in more than one forum is not allowed and will be treated as spam. Should this occur, then only the thread in the most relevant forum will be left open; all others will be locked and subsequently deleted.

Multiple Accounts
You may only have one account. Having more then one account simultaneously will result in a permanent I.P ban*. If you have lost/forgotten your password, please contact an administrator. 

*Exceptions will be made for siblings or family, IF requested ahead of time.

What happens if I break the rules?

At best your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted and you will receive a temporary site ban. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse so please don't. You will be contacted with this information.


Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued a temporary site ban - The length of this ban is determined by the number of offenses you have.

For persistent and or deliberate rule-breakers your account and I.P address will be "Nuked". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and your account will no longer function.


Suggestions:

In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

1. Use common sense. Anything that you say or do carries consequences with it. If you find yourself questioning the nature of what you're going to post, then it's probably not safe to post it. Save yourself the trouble and our time, think before you post.

2. Always be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world of different ages, genders, and races. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

3. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum that you are posting in.

4. Make sure that you have followed #1 and #3 before posting.


Chat-box Offense punishments are as followed:

Offense 1 - Warning 1
Offense 2 - Kick From Chat-Box
Offense 3 - Warning 2
Offense 4 - Temporary Chat-Box Ban

Following Warning 2 you will be ban from the chat for one day. When you return, your account will be on Warning 2. This means if you violate a rule again you will be ban from the chat for a week. Upon returning, should you continue to cause trouble, you will be Permanently Ban from the chat. 

Forum Offense punishments are as followed:


Offense 1 and 2 - Warning 1 and 2
Offense 3 - One Day Ban
Offense 4 - Various Ban Time. Depending on the Offense. You will be told the ban time before your ban.

***All ban times and or warnings are subject to Administrator discretion. Administrators reserve the right to alter ban times or skips warning levels if deemed necessary***

Please note that Chat-Box Offenses and Forum Offenses are considered separate. Should you get ban from the chat, you are not ban from the site. However, obviously, if you are ban form the site, you won't be able to access the chat box, but it does not count as a Chat-Box ban.
