Forum Rules & Ban List / Moderator's Corner


  • Circumventing bans- if you've been issued with a ban, you're probably quite upset about it. If you come up with the bright idea of creating a new account to get around the ban, forget it. Mods can see who you are behind the new account. Anyone caught trying to bypass a ban by creating a new account will have the ban on their current account doubled, and the new account will be permanently banned.

    Punishments and Penalties

    If you break a rule, you may be given a warning, or if the breach is more serious, a ban. Extreme rule breaches can lead to being permanantly banned from all neoseeker.

    Mods can also give posting bans, so you are limited to X number of posts per day. You may find this awarded to you if you spam a lot.

    Do not think posting as a guest makes you anonymous. Mods can see your IP, which allows us to see what accounts you use and where else you have posted. We can also ban IPs, so guests should not think they are invincible.

    Friendly Hints
    These aren't rules, but they're a good way of stopping you becoming the most annoying person on neo.

  • Don't request closure for threads, unless you are the creator. It serves no purpose and is basically spam. If you really want a thread closed, report a post in the thread or PM me with a good reason.
  • You aren't god. In this forum you have no power whatsoever. Don't threaten people with bans or other punishments, simply because they won't happen.
  • You aren't better than other members. You all fall under the same jurisdiction and you have the same rights. Abuse them and you will be banned, no matter how important you think you are.
  • Type sense. People are going to think a lot more of you if you post using proper grammar and full words than if you type in capitals and say "U" and "y" a lot. It makes you seem like an idiot.
  • Don't start threads commemorating yor #Xth post. It is spam, and if everyone did it neoseeker would be a lot more boring. Just put a little message at the end of your post saying "w00t! X posts!" or something along those lines.
  • Use the !report feature. It means a mod can access a problem much more quickly and easily than if they were to look for it themselves.

    FAQs:
    Q: What is spamming?
    A: as i have said above, spamming is the posting of unnecessary remarks to raise your post count. Extending words and overusing smilies are examples, but not all.
    Q: What is flooding?
    A: Flooding is replying to every thread on one or multiple pages. If a thread has nothing left to say, don't bump it by posting, leave it.
    Q: I have a question about neoseeker that isn't answered here, where should i ask it?
    A: You can either PM the moderator, or ask it in Site Q&A.
    Q: How do i become a moderator?
    A: Read this thread to find out how to become a mod. If you have a question about the system, ask it here
    Q: Why was my thread closed?
    A: Most likely it breached one of the above rules, or it had reached the maximum page limit (20).

    Try to follow these rules and hints, it makes the forums a lot more fun for all of us.
