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 post||1 warning|
|Double Posting||1 warning|
|Disrespectful Behavior||1-3 warnings|
|Racism, sexism, any bad thing that ends with -ism||3-4 warnings|
|Illegal activity||4-5 warnings|
|Third-party advertising||3 warnings|
|Double Accounts||1-3 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.

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.
-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.
