Rules and Etiquette

Post by Crow on Sun Sep 18, 2011 2:12 am

The rules. Everybody hates these. As much as i hate rules, in most cases,they're necessary. I'll try to keep them simple and to the point. We have three set of rules. Main Ruels, Rules, and Etiquette. Please read each one carefully.

Main Rules:
1. No Sexual and/or pornographic content
2. No Violent or repulsive content
3. Hateful or abusive content
4. Defamatory content and / or affecting the integrity of a person
5. Harmful and dangerous acts
6. Drugs and any other illicit substance
7. Sale or exchange of medication that requires a prescription from a licensed practitioner, or medicines without prescription
8. Spam
9. Phishing and/ or malware website
10. Credit card fraud
11. Hacking

Rules
1. Members are not allowed to engage in threatening behavior toward other members. This includes flaming.
2. No short, low quality posts like "bump", "lol", "roflmao", "thanks" and any repeated characters to defeat the min character count,or to simply gain a quick buck.
3. Don't attempt to infect members with trojans, viruses, or backdoors.
4. No direct links to infected downloads in posts, profiles, or Private Messages.
5. No posting of personal information that isn't yours. Privacy is to be respected here. This includes any passwords, logins or dumps.
6. Animated gifs should not be annoying.(if anyone complains about it, you'll receive an infraction.)
7. You cannot ask for or offer reputation in posts, signatures, or PM. This includes encouragement like "rep is appreciated",this also goes for the "thanks" button.
8. No adult images, adult links, or adult account trading.
9. No posting of fake programs.
10. No threads or posts for donation begging. This includes loan requests.
11. Read the violations for profile policies and rules in that help doc.
12. No political or religious expression in your profile. This includes user titles, signatures, and avatars.
13. Any rules posted in the forums header must also be reviewed. Some forums have special policies that must be adhered to. Don't post in any forum without reading them.
14. Abusing the system is not acceptable. Anyone found mass reporting(for no reason), or abusing the system somehow will be punished.

Etiquette of Aqua Post
1. Post in the correct category. Read the forum descriptions if you are confused.
2. Use good grammar. Basically start sentences with a capital and end it with punctuation.
3. Don't double post. That's when you post one after another instead of editing your existing first post.
4. Don't cross post. That's when you repeat a post in multiple threads or categories.
5. Create relevant subjects for threads. Shit like "OMG" for a subject is immature and asinine.
6. When posting content from another site, credit the site; use quotes and link to original content (unless it is a competing forum, in which case you shouldn’t be posting the content).
7. Be kind to others. How hard is it not to be an asshole?
8. Act like you're older than 16 even if you aren't.
