Clan Bloodthorn Forum Guidelines:


PERSONAL DISPUTES

Please do not use these forums for personal disputes, heated debates, flame wars etc. You are expected to treat each other with respect in the forums and take any personal disputes to a private mode of discussion off the forums. If you should find that your discussion is becoming too heated or someone is becoming far too passionate about their argument, please take the discussion to private message or email.

PERSONAL TOPICS

Personal topics are threads that, while posted in public forum, are intended for a discussion between only a few members. These kinds of topics are frowned on and will be locked/removed as soon as they are discovered. Public posts should be open and inviting to all members. Personal discussions among a select group of users should take place in private messages.

RESPECT OTHER USERS

Sometimes people can write something that you may find offensive. The use of Racial, Religious and Political type posts should always be avoided and are NOT allowed. Before launching into a public condemnation though, please consider that the person may not have intended to cause offense. It is very easy to misinterpret a post on forums. There is absolutely no need to resort to insults. Respect others' views even if you disagree with them. Again take these issues to private message or email.

ADVERTISING/SOLICITATION

Advertising for the sake of advertising is not allowed. Posts of this kind will be locked/deleted.

NO TROLLING

Debate is fine. But posts with little purpose other than to stir the pot and make people jump in to argue will not be tolerated. If you see a message like this, please try and refrain from replying to it - it may well be locked/deleted anyway. It may not be possible to avoid every argument, but knowing when to let things go is a valuable tool. And not just in this community.

IGNORE SPAMMERS

Nobody likes spam, but it is hard to avoid. Despite our best efforts you may occasionally see spam on the forums. Complaining about it in public may make you feel better, but it doesn't help. PM a moderator and they will review it for removal.

Repetitive posts by one user and needlessly creating a new thread when one is already available can also be considered spam. Don't make it more difficult for community members to track this forum - two dozen threads about the same thing every day is not helpful. Try searching first.

DO NOT FLAME

"Flaming" and personal attacks will not be tolerated in this Forum. If you think a guild mate's conduct needs to be exposed to the rest of the guild, discuss the problem with an Officer first. Judging whether your guild mate is the problem, or you are the problem . . . or whether a problem even exists . . . is reserved to the Officers.

Finally, while "Rants" can be cathartic, funny, and even informative . . . choose your targets carefully, and don't cross the line.

Be courteous and as always have fun!
