We ask that posters abstain from making the following types of posts. Those that consistently ignore these guidelines will be blocked from posting further comments. Multiple warnings could result in a ban. Warnings: - Excessive use of vulgar launguage in titles of comments / messages. - Posts just to post. IBD, First, etc. Except for threads made for people to get their 10 posts to be able to PM. - Incomprehensible posts or posts in ALL CAPS. - Nonsensical posts that have nothing to do with the topic, repetitive diatribes posted to multiple items, off-topic posts that hinder discussion, and responses to those posts. These threads will be deleted with one warning. Second offense will likely result in a banning. Depending on the severity, the UOF moderators and staff reserve the right to ban on the first offense: - Use of offensive racial / gender / sexual preference / religion-bashing terms or other hurtful speech. - Negative posts about the shard. If the shard “sucks," there’s the door. - Spam and links to spam. - Links to inappropriate or unrelated content such as porn, distasteful pictures, etc. - Comments about post deletion, or thread locks Immediate bans: - Posting of any personal information about other players, names, addresses, phone numbers, e-mails, etc. - Personal attacks UOF staff/counselors/mods. - Posts specifically advertizing for another server are not allowed anywhere on the forums. Misc: Posts intended to derail threads or start a trash talking match between forum posters should be limited to the Flames and Rants thread. (See Thread specific rules under that section) Posts that discuss non-UOF related topics are allowed in the "Everything Else” forum. Scams may not be perpetrated in the WTS/WTB section of the forum. Enforcement of these rules is up to the discretion of the moderator and may be retroactively enforced. If you should have a grievance regarding the way in which a moderator acted, please contact a UOF staff member.
