I will start this by saying that I want this to be a relaxed Forum, I want us all to be able to speak our minds about whatever the topic of the day is, without fear of repercussion. That being said, we still need some guidelines to keep things in order. I, and the staff of the JMF Forums will enforce these guidelines using a three strike rule. Upon receiving your third strike, your IP will be banned, and you will no longer be allowed access to the forum. Warnings will be issued for violating the "Thread Etiquette" section of these guidelines. 3 warnings = 1 strike, every other violation after that will result in a strike. We will not bend rules, and we will issue strikes ONLY if the action warrants it. In the future, if there is a need felt for another rule to be added, it will be drafted and voted upon by the members of the JMF Forums.
Unfortunately, until I have staff appointed, this is a Dictatorship. However, strikes will ONLY be issued for violating the following rules.
- Cursing -
Cursing on the JMF Forum is allowed, as long as it is done in taste. Using vulgar language towards another member in a menacing fashion is NOT allowed.
- FLAMING -
Flaming of ANY type, no matter the subject is NOT allowed. We welcome discussion, however we must respect others opinions. Included in this is bad mouthing other forums, and other members.
- SPAMMING -
Spamming is NOT allowed. This includes, but is not limited to: Spamming comments on the Shoutbox, Spamming posts, creating unnecessary amounts of Threads regarding the same subject.
- LEAKS -
Leaking of info regarding Joe Montana Football is NOT allowed. This is in order to keep us in good standing with the JMF team, developer, and publisher. Leaking of info on other games is allowed, but you do so at your own risk.
The JMF Forums and staff take no responsibility whatsoever for your actions.
- ABUSING KARMA SYSTEM -
Any abuse of the Karma(touchdown) system will IMMEDIATELY be issued a strike. This includes "boosting" a friends count, or constantly detracting from the same member.
- ADULT CONTENT -
Posting pornography of any shape or form is NOT allowed, and will result in an IMMEDIATE ban. No exceptions.
- THREAD ETIQUETTE -
Strikes will NOT be immediately issued for violating these rules. Warnings however, will be issued. Three warnings = 1 strike, every violation after is a strike.
Bumping a topic is NOT allowed.
DELETE double postings or request staff to do so.
QUOTE AND CITE
Keep Topics, on topic. We have an off topic board where you can talk about anything your heart desires.
If we all follow these guidelines we will have a great community to discuss JMF on. If you have any questions or concerns, PLEASE PM me, contact me on Twitter @jhoops90, or E-mail JMFForums@gmail.com
