We've never really had any rules in place, but I feel it's in everyone's best interest if we do. WWE Forums is a very relaxed community, we are not strict on moderation but there are limits. Anyway, Rules Flaming / Excessive Language [1 point, 1 week] We don't care if you say "fuck" or "shit" now and again. However, excessive bad language just isn't acceptable. You can control it, so read your post back before replying angrily. Similarly, hurling abuse at other members is not acceptable either. We know the difference between "banter" and flaming, so don't try fooling anyone. Off Topic Posting [1 point, 3 days] Taking another members thread off topic is not allowed. This rule is enforced depending on the direction the thread takes. Advertising / Spam [1 point, 1 week] Signing up to advertise or spam usually results in a ban. You can fill in your homepage here and in your signature, a thread isn't needed. Competing sites are not allowed to be advertised and will result in an immediate ban. Spoiling Results [1 point, 1 week] This means posting a thread containing spoilers, and not using the spoiler thread tag or spoiler code. Thread tag must always be used, but using the spoiler code is optional. Signature Violation [1 point, 3 days] You can view the signatures rules here. Abusing Features [2 points, 2 weeks] This covers anything other than post related rule breaking, such as: - Going on a post disliking spree - Uploading inappropriate images to the gallery - Putting things in your profile that shouldn't be there (malware, porn, etc..) Adult Content [3 points, 3 days] Semi-naked people or any kind of porn cannot be posted publicly, doing so will get the site into trouble with Google. There will be zero tolerance for this. There is a private legends section and a women of wrestling section for this. Warning Actions At 3 points: add to limited group while at 3 points or more. This means your posts will have to be manually approved, and other site functions will be disabled such as signature editing and using the chat. At 6 points: a 1 day ban is issued. At 9 points: a 5 day ban is issued. At 100 points: a permanent ban is issued. Things to Note Bumping a thread isn't against the rules, just don't do it for no reason. No warnings are issued for posting a thread in the wrong section. This has never been a problem and is very quick and easy to move. By using WWE Forums, you agree to the rules above. If you have any questions, or want to suggest additions/removals, reply to this thread. Thank you.
