Moderation

There has, as of late, been a fair bit of negative posting going on on these forums. I am not a huge fan of heavily moderated boards, and don't plan on heavily moderating these boards. That being said, some of the conduct of a few people has been less than friendly or constructive, and something needs to change.

Due to the inability of some posters to post nicely, to refrain from posting in an attacking manner, and generally ruining the nature of several good threads with inappropriate posts, we're going to a semi-moderated board (yes, more than just joking edits).

1) If you're deemed to be posting in a manner which people would consider "Trolling" or attacking another person, you will receive a 3 day to 1 week temporary ban. After 3 such bans, you will be permanently banned.
2) If you try to sell gold, trade characters, post real life information of people, or generally do something that is not acceptable on public message boards you can potentially be perma-banned or given a temp ban and a strong warning.

This is being done to improve these boards for our small community, and to keep things peaceful and constructive (or at least interesting and entertaining!)

Note: This doesn't mean you can't do silly things like pyramids, or joking troll posts. It is entirely aimed at people making mean or attacking posts. As always, good discussion and courtesy are thoroughly encouraged.

You can flame people if you do it in a joking manner, it can be clearly seen to be a joking manner, and you are not offending the other person. I am just tired of seeing people bitch like whiny children at each other.

It really depends on the person you're responding to.

Ofcourse there are some people who cannot post without getting banned just because they are who they are *cough zohar cough* :P

Galobtar is right on target with this one. I know that sarcasm is lost over the internet. Which is why we must choose our words and "attitudes" wisely. I'll laugh at just about any joke, but I find it hard to just brush off blatant attacks against others.
