D.0) Staff & Reporting


D.1) Reporting Posts
The forum rules will be enforced by the moderators; however, we may miss some things.
If you see a post that breaks forum rules, please use the report function to bring it to our attention.
Do not use the report function to falsely accuse other members, or to simply tell us "Thanks".
Only use it when needing to move/delete posts, or to report a user who is breaking the rules.
If you abuse this function you will receive a warning.

D.2) Do not spam staff member inboxes
If you have any kind of problem you want to discuss with a member of the staff, send them a Private Message.
If you flood a staff member's inbox you will be warned. There is no need to ask the same question twice.


E.0) Warning System

Not following the rules may result in any of the following:

E.1) Warning
A warning is to make you aware of the fact that you did something wrong.
After 5 warnings your warning level will hit 100%, that will be your final warning.
At that point our staff will then decide what action needs to be taken.

E.2) Posting Rights Removal
This option will take away your rights to make both topics and posts.
This action will be used when the staff member in question has the idea you need to "cool down".
You are not allowed to make a new account while under this setting, that will result in a permanent ban.

E.3) Suspension & Banning
Banning is our hardest possible action. When your account is banned you will not be able to log in with the account.
Depending on the severity what you've done wrong it may be temporary or permanent.

Depending on the severity of your offense our staff will decide what action should be taken.
Staff members do NOT have to issue worded warnings before taking any action.
The decided action is not to be argued, but if you feel it has been unfair PM a different staff member for a second opinion.
Any member of the staff is allowed to be exempted from the rules if he/she thinks it is needed in that case.
