Board rules

These rules are disclosed to clarify the various responsibilities of all community members here on SokaForums. They shall be adhered to by everyone to ensure that our board runs smoothly and provides a fun and productive experience for all of our community members and visitors.

  1. Flaming, Bashing, and Trolling:

    1. Hate posts and personal attacks will not be tolerated on the boards. Treat others on these message boards as you would expect them to treat you. Posting topics specifically designed to provoke a negative response from someone (aka trolling) is also asked to be avoided. #
  2. Spam:Email & Private Message Spam

    1. Purposely spamming a message board with senseless, vacuous, or empty messages to gain a higher post count, or just to annoy others is HIGHLY frowned upon! Commercial spamming and advertising are just as unwelcome unless it is done in the special designed area. Promoting your site is only allowed with permission of the site owners. Bumping old threads is allowed in the request forums, but needless bumps in other forums will be classed as spam. Double posting any entry is also considered as spamming. #
    2. If the members are using the private message facility to spam the others with pointless, unsolicited mail they will be banned. If anyone receives one of these messages, please contact an admin immediately. #
  3. Profanity:

    1. Profanity is not tolerated in the board, some words will be censored, also there is to be no name calling, linking two/more display names or a display name with a real name, doing so will give you a warning, and then a ban if you continue. #
  4. Piracy, and Warez:

    1. We do not mind discussions about piracy or warez, as long as they are just that...discussions. Linking or giving information about any site that distributes illegal software, or warez, seeking help to circumvent any copyright laws, or encouraging software or media piracy grounds for an immediate ban. #
  5. Circumventing a Ban:

    1. If you log onto the forums and receive a message that you have been banned, please submit an unban request and wait for a staff member to get in touch with you. You may NOT re register under a new name if the software lets you. But, if you try to sign up again and we caught you, then it will become a permanent IP Ban. We do NOT send out notices that you have been banned. #
  6. Impersonating Other Users / Accessing Another User Account:

    1. You may not impersonate another board member or create an account specifically for the purpose of provoking other users. Also, accessing or using someone else's account or attempting to access another poster's account is strictly prohibited. You will be banned. #
  7. Off-Topic Posts:

    1. There is no major punishment for off-topic posters. But lets be honest, it drives us all mad!! If you have something to say but it really has nothing to do with the current thread you are in, please open a new thread for it. Otherwise it will just be deleted and won't solve anything at all. #
  8. Nudity / Porn:

    1. Please keep in mind that this board is a PUBLIC forum. There are as much as from 14 year olds here just as there are 60 year olds. Nudity and porn is prohibited for obvious reasons. A single post of this kind will result to warning of immediate ban. #
  9. Signatures & Avatars:

    1. We do not have any specific set of rules regarding signatures. However, we do ask you that it will not be offensive to others and the length should be within reason. If you desire to have a custom avatar, it must be 250x250 pixels or less. No adult, drug related or racist content accepted. #
