PostForum Rules/Warning system

Fuji Planet Rules

Warnings are things that we will hold against you and can get you banned. Once you have 5 warnings, you will be permanently banned. We will be sure to give you a verbal warning before we give you a warning, so that you are no penalized for not understanding the rules. But once you get a verbal warning, we will not hesitate any more to give you a warning as well. Here are the rules and how many warnings they are worth:


Spam post1 warning
Double Posting1 warning
Disrespectful Behavior1-3 warnings
Racism, sexism, any bad thing that ends with -ism3-4 warnings
Illegal activity4-5 warnings
Flooding3 warnings
Third-party advertising
3 warnings
Double Accounts1-3 warnings


Detailed information:

Spam
-Any post that does not significantly add to the conversation
-Any new thread that is meant for spamming or has no point to it
-Rick Rolling is frowned upon and can get insanely annoying
-Talking in caps makes people feel like they are being yelled at. If you want to be abnormal, talk in italics.
-Making a topic without a title that is related to the topic itself will be trashed.

Double Posting
-You can edit your own post to avoid this.
-Double posting is only allowable if the posts are separates by a 24 hour span, but you still can not post more than 3 consecutive posts

Disrespectful Behavior
-Insulting language directed to another person
-Harassment
-Explicitly rating or criticizing anything user-created without trying it
-Excessive cursing used in an argument directed at a paticular person
-Flaming

Illegal Activity
-Posting or linking to pirated information, whether it is software, files, or property
-Although not exactly illegal, posting or linking to pornographic images or information is completely restricted
-Hacking the forum in any way will result in 5 warnings, i.e. ban.

Flooding
-Nonstop spamming
Third-Party Advertising
-Advertising basically any products that are not directly connected to this site, specifically things that you didn't make.
Double Accounts
-Double accounting is illegal in Fuji Planet rules; if the second account/triple account you made and you spam/swear or flame, you get 3 warnings. If you confess, 2 warnings. If your second account is nice, you'll get 1 warning.

The Report System


With the addition of the report system comes a level of added responsibility for you guys, the members. Reports take a fair bit of time to go through and assess for moderators and administrators. Because of that, we have to be kind of strong on cases of abuse of it. Will it get you banned if you abuse it once? No. But, there are other kinds of reprimanding that can be handed down in cases of abuse. For example, the privilege of reporting can be revoked for individual members. Hence, I think that a different system of consequences can be set up dealing with abuse of the reporting system. Also, since you cannot "unintentionally" abuse the system, we have to take that into consideration too.

1 abuse- 1 verbal warning.
2 abuses- 1 implemented warning.
3 abuses- 2 implemented warnings and revoking of reporting privileges for 2 weeks.
4 abuses- Two implemented warnings and revoking of reporting privileges for 6 weeks.
5 abuses- Three implemented warnings and revoking of reporting privleges for 18 weeks.
6 abuses- Four implemented warnings and revoking of reporting privleges for 36 weeks.
7 abuses- Immediate ban.

Keep in mind if continued abuse happens, we will disable the system again entirely.

CURRENT SETTINGS:

-Available for all members.
-Ability to report yourself: ENABLED
-Ability to edit reports: ENABLED.

Bumping Threads is now allowed in CONTROLLED amounts. Aka don't bump 50 threads at a time, but one here and there is fine, and warnings will only be given in excessive cases. Have fun.
_____________________
If you do wish to carry out any of these things, you must have approval by an Admin, although most of these have no exceptions.

You will be given a verbal warning before an implemented warning for less-serious infractions (bumping, spam post, double posting, disrespectful behavior, flooding). However, for a more serious infractions (illegal activity, sexism, racism, double accounts), you will not get a verbal warning before an implemented warning.

Detailed rules on the Arcade, Graphics, Forum Games and Contests sections can be found in those respective sections.

Additional Rules:

These are not as important, but if we have to constantly remind you, you will receive an infraction for it.

1. Signatures: they may not be longer than 10 lines, small (default) font. If you want a picture, the height of it must be under 200 pixels and the width under 550. You may only include two lines of small font with a picture.

2. You are not to post in any staff's moderation colors.

With the comings and goings of Fuji, from time to time the administrators and staff find it necessary to adjust certain rules to reflect how much they will be enforced. From this point forward, until further notice:

-Double posting is ALLOWED. Gentle reminders will be given, but no verbals or warnings except in cases of intentional triple posting or constant double posting. It gets annoying to have to scroll over the same stuff twice.
-Spamming is allowed under reasonable conditions. You can't just spam "." everywhere or something like that (that'll be considered spam and given warnings as needed). But going randomly off-topic is fine.
-Disrespectful behavior. We can all act like civilized people, can't we? If not, yeah, we're not going to tolerate it unless it's clear that jest is intended and received by both parties involved.
-Racism, Sexism, etc all still enforced as stated.
-Illegal activity results in an auto-ban.
-Flooding. This kinda goes hand-in-hand with double posting and will be enforced the same way.
-Double Accounts are restricted as normal.
-Bumping old threads is COMPLETELY ALLOWED. NO WARNINGS ARE TO BE GIVEN OUT FOR BUMPING.

Anything else, PM me.
