FORUM GUIDELINES

Postby Jo on Wed Oct 10, 2007 11:26 am

We have implemented the following guide for use on the Oak Island Treasure Forum. This guide is designed to strike a balance between the main goal of our forum and maintaining a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere for you, the user community.

1 We require all posts to be polite, constructive, and on topic.

2 From time to time, topics may be removed for being inappropriate even though your individual post in that topic may have been perfectly fine. Please do not feel this reflects badly on you.

3 Please keep posts positive and polite. We may take action against posts and/or topics that could cause unrest in the community beyond a civil and polite disagreement.

4 You may not make personal attacks on other users or staff members either in public forums or private messages.

5 We reserve the right to ban any member who violates our guidelines or disrupts our community. We will be fair and provide warning in most cases.

6 If you have an issue concerning our services, policies, or staff, please use a personal contact method such as a private message or email to a staff member. We take serious complaints to heart and will do our best to address them.

7 No profanity or foul language. Any unacceptable language will be removed and you will receive a final warning.

8 No racial, ethnic, gender based insults or any other personal discriminations.

9 No posts meant to offend or hurt any other member, in a manner which is offensive or inflammatory.

10 Spamming will not be tolerated; please keep all your posts as constructive as possible.

11 Users may not argue a moderators decision publicly. Any and all complaints directed at a moderator must first address the moderator in question via PM. If the problem can not be resolved, then the moderator and user must send their positions to the forum admin. The forum admin will make or change any and/or all final decisions.

12 Advertising, commercial-related or competing products are all forbidden in any relation to your account except by explicit permission.

13 Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other topics and see where your topic should go. If your topic is placed in the wrong forum, it will be moved by a moderator.

14 If you think a topic has been posted in the wrong forum, please let us know by emailing forum@oakislandtreasure.co.uk or contact a moderator via PM. Do not respond publicly to the member - a member of the moderation team will do what is required upon contact.

15 Any person/s who attempt to present themselves as a Moderator by posting negatively to a member's topic (which has been posted in error and requires locking or moving to another forum) will be sent a PM warning and placed into moderation queue upon further actions.

16 Locked topics may be pruned regularly to reduce page clutter.

17 If you have a question about where your topic went, please PM a Moderator or Administrator before starting a new topic asking where it went, or posting a duplicate of the original topic. We will be happy to provide you with a link to the new location, or a reason why it was locked and/or removed.

18 Violation of any of these rules will result in consequences determined on a case-by-case basis.

Any other issues, please don't hesitate to email forum@oakislandtreasure.co.uk , we would be glad to talk to you.

Regards,
