Board rules

Wandering Monk Forum Cannons

1.0 General Rules

In order to keep these forums running smoothly and to prevent problems, please follow these simple rules for the forums here. If you have any questions or problems, please contact me (The Keeper, Site Admin) or a Site Moderator.

Our goal for this site is to keep a fun, clean, RPG environment with an emphasis on Rolemaster. These rules help ensure that people of all ages and backgrounds will enjoy this board.

  1. This site has very specific content geared forums. Members are asked to read the forum descriptions before posting to ensure they are posting in the correct forum. This rule is very forgiving, but users who repeatedly post in the wrong forum despite corrections from the Site Admin or Site Moderators may be given a warning.
  2. Members should use an appropriate, descriptive title when posting a new topic. Examples of bad titles include; "Help me!", "I’m stuck!" etc. Examples of good titles include; "How do you calculate hits?","I can’t find the Longsword Attack Table", etc. are okay.
  3. These forums are geared toward a Fantasy/RPG audience and therefore posts that are sexual in nature, pornographic content, or generally offensive in nature such as text, images, links etc. will not be tolerated and will lead to an immediate warning, if not outright deletion of your account and possible banning. If a username is found to be offensive, it will be immediately changed and the user PMed a request to choose another, more appropriate username.
  4. Members are not to post obscene, vulgar, racist, graven, offensive, illegal, posts, links or images on this site. Posting of such content will be removed and will lead to a warning. Any further violation will result in the user account being deleted and the user banned if necessary.
  5. Members are not allowed to use any artifice or method to bypass or avoid the profanity filter.
  6. Members are not allowed to flame other members or groups of members. Flaming includes, but is not limited to: Ridiculing, insulting, or demeaning another member or group of members. Such behaviour will not be tolerated and will lead to a warning and the offending posts removed or the topic locked. Any further violation will result in the user account being deleted and the user banned if necessary.
  7. Members are not allowed to bait other members. Baiting is a purposeful attempt, solely to anger and provoke another member. Such behaviour does not contribute to the discussion and will lead to a warning and offending posts removed or topic locked. Any further violation will result in the user account being deleted and the user banned if necessary.
  8. Members are not to harass or abuse other members in topics, private messages, signatures, avatars or profiles. This includes stalking other members, both online and in real life. Such behaviour will lead to a warning or a ban.
  9. Members are not to violate the privacy of other members by publicly posting identifiable personal information about them; e.g. full names, addresses, e-mail addresses or telephone numbers OTHER THAN THAT WHICH MAY ALREADY BE REVEALED BY THE OTHER MEMBER WITHIN HIS OR HER OWN PROFILE OR ANY PREVIOUS POST, OR FOR WHICH PERMISSION FROM THE OTHER MEMBER HAS BEEN GRANTED. This includes reposting the contents of private messages or e-mails without the prior permission of the sender. Exceptions may include notifying a staff member of a violation through private channels such as the board private message system.
  10. All rules apply to the private messaging system as well. Abuse of the Private Messaging system will result in a warning. Any further violation will result in the user account being deleted and the user banned if necessary.
  11. Members are asked to respect the copyright of other users, sites, media, etc. Users linking to or asking for information on warez, crackz, etc. or re-printing material without permission will receive a warning and their post will be removed. Any further violation will result in the user account being deleted and the user banned if necessary.
  12. Members are asked not to post using l33t speak, txt speak, posting in ALL CAPS in posts, topics or blog posts. Repeatedly posting in these methods will result in a warning. Any further violation will result in the user account being made inactive until the user agrees to respect this rule. Any further violation after that will result in account deletion and possible banning.
  13. ANY previously BANNED user that is caught re-registering under a new account for ANY reason is subject to IMMEDIATE account and post deletion if found by any class of Moderator or Admin. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS!

  1. Avatars must NOT contain an image which attempts to portray the user as having an official status on this site or forums (such as mimicking ranks or copying avatars of staff) if such images are officially designated for staff and are being used by staff.

  1. Back seat moderating is not allowed on these boards. If you notice an issue which may be against board policy, please use the Report Post Feature located on every post and a Moderator will address the issue. Members who constantly act as moderators will be warned.
  2. Administrators may be required to read specific private messages in an investigation to verify a rule breach or illegal actions through the private message system.
  3. The Staff reserve the right to edit or remove any post at any time on these boards. The determination of what is construed as indecent, vulgar, spam, etc. as noted in these points is up to Staff Members and not users. Moderators also reserve the right to ban anyone who wilfully violates the board rules, as access to our forums are a privilege and not a right.
  4. While these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way.
  5. Members are asked to not contact staff members for moderation (moving/splitting/merging/deleting) of topics or posts. Please instead use the report post feature located on a post. Members are also asked to not abuse the report post feature. Excessively contacting staff members for non-urgent moderation or abusing the report post feature may result in a warning.

  2. If the member continues to breach the SAME Forum Rule, an official Warning will be issued by a Moderator.
  3. Arguing with team members after having received a warning will lead to an immediate additional warning. Should this exceed three warnings a suspension (temporary ban) will be put in place.
  4. Any attempt to circumvent a suspension (temporary ban) will lead to that ban being made permanent.
  5. Members who feel they have been unfairly warned are encouraged to contact an Administrator.
