NOTE: Individual clubs have different rule standards. If a club does not have a thread listing rules, then the rules given in this thread are the only ones in place. However, you may be excluded from certain clubs if you break specific club rules.
Don't post illegal content.
If it's illegal in the United States, don't post it. The main thing being underage nudes.
We view spam as any of the following:
Posting over and over again in rapid succession for the sole reason of increasing your post count. Advertising your own content more than you contribute to other content on the site. For every self-advertising post you make, you should have at least 5 others that are not. This is a more generous ratio than you will find on the majority of forums online. Posting actual spam advertisements/copy and pasted messages that you have posted in a countless other places. Don't scare off new people.
Pretty self-explanatory. Just be nice(ish).
Don't abuse the reputation system.
If you like a post someone has made, then you should upvote it. If you dislike a post someone has made, you should downvote it. However, you should not be going on a spree of upvoting or downvoting multiple of a user's posts simply because you like or dislike that person.
Don't be a loser.
Losers can go away.
Don't ban accounts.
We never ban on RR. If you urgently need to do something about an account, then flag as spam or disable their posting abilities for the time being.
Don't delete accounts.
Often times members might ask us to delete their accounts. Don't. Deleting a user's account will mess up content across the forums, especially if they are a top contributor. As for spam accounts, you should simply flag as spammer via the ACP.
Don't delete content.
Do not delete posts or topics from the website. If you accidentally post twice, or see that another user has accidentally posted twice, then this rule may be ignored.
Don't manipulate stats via the ACP.
Do not manipulate reputation or post counts via the ACP.
Don't make any site wide drastic changes without first consulting me.
Self explanatory. Most of the time I'll be happy for you to do as you please. Just ask me first.
Don't edit or login to member profiles without their permission.
If rules are broken, warning points will be issued. On the ragreynolds forums, we never ban. Upon receiving a certain number of warning points, punishments will be issued in the form of revoked permissions and access to certain site features.
Example: If you are abusing the reputation system, your power to use the reputation system will be taken from you.
As for staff who break rules, depending on what rule it is they have broken, they may have certain permissions revoked, or possibly even removed from their staff position.
