Halo Wars Forum Rules*
All participators of the forum are expected to follow this set of rules in order to maintain a friendly and welcome environment for everyone in the Halo Wars forum.
DO NOT post spoilers unless you tag your thread with a spoiler tag. Failure to do this will result in a 7 day ban. This is the only warning you get. Spoilers have the reputation to shred the fun out of games, don't ruin the game for people. I'm going to be incredibly strict, but fair, in this department.
The game is nearing release and I want to make it clear I have zero tolerance for spoilers within the first few months of release.
We are all familiar with this term, and I'm sure we all hate it. If you don't know what spam is, I'll explain. You know those constant unwanted emails you get from random advertisers? That would be spam. The key word is unwanted. Don't post a bunch or crap, not only will no one like you or think you are funny, but I'll have to talk to you and set you straight before things get out of hand. My forum won't be your chatroom, that's what the General Discussion thread is for.
Tangents Are For Circles
In other words, don't get off topic. It's pretty simple. We visit forums and we click on threads that interest us, seems pretty logical, right? You'd be surprised. No one wants to click on a thread about say, Scorpion Tanks, and hear about how much better Vultures are than Scarabs. Threads have titles for a reason.
Stop, Drop, And Roll
Flaming? I can be a very angry person. To be honest, if I'm not flaming someone, you shouldn't be. No exceptions. I'm keeping my fire extinguisher close-by on this one.
Do Not Pass Go, Do Not Collect $200
Sorry, no game threads! We can have fun without them, I promise! I'm not going to be too strict on this one. If you have a good idea for a game, Halo Wars relevant, PM me and I'll either reject it or approve. Don't juggle my dice or you might find yourself going down that chute that leads all the way back to the start space. Isn't that one a bitch?
We Can't All Be Like Me
Nice to meet you, I'm the Halo Wars moderator, meaning you aren't (unless you are a supermod, or one of the section moderators). Don't tell people how they should be acting in the forum if they get out of hand, just let me know and I'll take care of it. See my shiny red tag? I value it, and if everyone had the power to do my job here in the forum, it wouldn't be worth anything. Don't steal my valuables.
Don't Push My Buttons
Literally. You see that button that says "Report"? It's not a toy, abuse it and you'll find yourself banned without warning. I'm going to be pretty strict with this one, because it's common sense; you don't report things that don't need reporting.
Your Keyboard And You
Every button on your keyboard, believe it or not, is there for a very good reason. That's right! The period button, the apostrophe, Hell even the shift button has a purpose. Please, post with some integrity. dont typ liek th1s. If there's one thing that bugs me mad it's when people that I know can construct a decent sentence fail to do so. If you have spelling problems, haven't learned your grammar yet and are still in Kindergarten, that's fine. Just try your best.
I'm guessing you just put on some kind of frown, or sad face. I could probably make you cry if I said it enough. Commercials commercials commercials!!! Alright, I'll stop. What are commercials? They're advertisements, something no one likes. Don't advertise anything here, it makes everyone sad. This includes links to other sites, or at least sites external to Neoseeker. If you post any URLs on this forum that aren't nice and snug between an <IMG> tag or a <Youtube> tag, and aren't informational and/or news relative to the forum, don't expect them to be up very long.
Being A Pirate Is Alright With Me! You ARRR A Pirate!
Actually no, it isn't, and no... you aren't. You might wish you were, but you aren't. Pirated content will not be tolerated. End of discussion.
Attack Of The Clones
Every tried cloning an animal? It's hard. The animal usually dies. Think of your thread as an animal. If you make a duplicate thread, I'll close it. It will die, and I'll make sure it's slow and painful. The only exception is if a thread had been inactive for a good amount of time and is on a page past page three or so of the forum. I don't expect you to dig through dozens of pages for a thread every time you make one, with no evidence that there has ever been on in the first place. I'm not cruel.
The Big Picture
Big pictures suck to say the least, they can distort an entire page of a thread. No one wants to have to scroll sideways to read something. Scrolling sideways is incredibly irritating. The world will frown upon you if you make others have to perform this tedious task that is side-scrolling. If you have a big image, link it, or use a spoiler tag.
You Cannot Escape The Ban Hammer
If I ban you, you're banned. If I find you are trying to bypass that ban, I'll have you IP banned, possibly permanently, and I'll report you to a supermod. If you think you can disguise yourself behind another account, go ahead and try to. Watch what happens.
Use Your Noodle
Everyone has a noodle, and everyone is expected to use their noodle. Just because something you know is wrong isn't listed in the rules, doesn't mean you can do it. Also, use your noodle when posting in general, don't try to make yourself look like an idiot. You don't always have to act like an idiot to be funny or get attention. If you use your noodle you will get plenty of attention and everyone will love you.
Taste The Rainbow, Don't Post It
If your font is obnoxiously bright or small, to the point where it blinds people. I'm going to have to ask you to change it. I'll always be reasonable with my suggestions, and I can tolerate most fonts. It's simple, re-read your post, and if your eyes are watering, it's time for a new text style.
Finally, obey these forum-wide rules. Neoseeker's General Rules. And that's gonna wrap it up.
I'm not too strict when it comes to rules, but don't disobey them. The more you disobey, the tighter I'm going to have to squeeze to keep everything in line. Don't make me squeeze too tight, I like you and don't want to hurt you with my KungFu grip.
Love you all. <3 Enjoy the forum.
