USER AGREEMENT & CODE OF CONDUCT

Post by Stueck » Sun Apr 23, 2017 10:40 am

FORUM RULES & GUIDELINES
- Obey All Forum Rules, including any sub forum rules that are stickied at the top of the sub forum.

1. OPINIONS
-We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the content of any message/post. The posts express the views of the author, not necessarily the views of the Clan or any entity associated with the Clan.

2. OBJECTIONABLE MATERIAL
-Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately. Send a private message to an admin or council member with a link to the post/thread/chat message in question. We will deal with it as soon as possible and get back to you.

3. AGE
– As long as you act above your shoe size and get along with everyone all are welcome.

4. BASIC ENGLISH
English is our multi-national communication medium. Please use it.

5. NO CHEATING
Our clan is all about sportsmanship not Gamesmanship or cheating. If you need to cheat go somewhere else. It ruins things for everyone and just shows your lack of worth if you do.

6. RESPECT AND NOT HARASMENT-
You will need to respect members and visitors also refraining from harassing and/or personally attacking other users or BM8 Admins etc.. You will need to respect the rights of other users to have their own opinions. There are many opposing political and religious views in a multi-national clan like ours. You may observe differences but not comment in a provocatively negative way about an opposing political/religious/cultural view. Hate filled or overly provocative language is not acceptable. Not even in the heat of the moment. Caution is needed when dealing with issues like Religion/Gender/sexual orientation (LBGT etc)/Race/Outlawed politics (ie Nazis/ISIS etc).

7. ACCOUNT SECURITY
-You are responsible for the security of your account. Any post from your account will be attributable to the account holder. It is the account holder’s responsibility to keep the account secure. It is no defence to say that a sister, brother, friend, etc. posted any offending post. Keep your password secret!!

8. DON’T MESS WITH THE FORUMS OR SERVERS.
You will not create offensive usernames as determined by BM8 staff. You will not impersonate BM8 staff or any other user. You will not attempt to or aid others to bypass BM8 security measures. (ie. Re-registering new user names to bypass bans, starting a new thread to bypass thread closures, hacking into any part of the Board, Posting messages for Banned members, bypassing decisions about content.)

9. TALK TO STAFF VIA PM-
You will not argue with, comment on or question the actions/authority/ or comments of the BM8 Administrators & council in a public forum. Should you wish to do so you are directed to contact the BM8 staff through a PM. If you unsure whether you have the right person feel free to message more than one admin/council member

10. NO TROLLING
You will not make posts that are inflammatory with the perceived intent to rile people up (i.e. "trolling" and "flaming" are prohibited). This includes excessive poking in Team speak. Stop it usually means STOP IT!

11. NO SPAMMING
You will not flood or post on the forums redundant, empty, or nonsensical posts or advertisements as determined by BM8 (i.e. no "spamming") No Chain letters, pyramid schemes and solicitations of any kind are allowed.

12. POST ON TOPIC
Only post messages that are within the particular forum’s scope or topic. Please use descriptive subject titles when posting new threads. Do not hijack threads for your own purpose but, rather, begin a new thread with the new subject.

13. N0 NAZIS, EXTREMISM, PIRATES, OR PORN
NAZIS -It IS illegal to show Nazi flags in Germany and various other countries. The same is true for other Nazi symbols (e.g. related to the SS) or Nazi propaganda material, including songs etc. Any links which include a Swastika or other illegal Nazi symbols will be deleted. This also applies to any talk of concentration camps. Any threads that complain about this issue will be closed, and posters will be subject to disciplinary action for having done so (see item 8. Talk to staff by PM) EXTREMISM- No reference is to be made to ISIS, Boko Haram or other extremist groups. PIRATES -You will not post messages that request, condone, support, offer or discuss pirated software/media or links to other such sites that condone, offer it or discuss p2p sites/methods. PORN - You will not post pornographic, sexually offensive material or images of a type unsuitable for a family/office environment or post links to such material or images.

14. NOTHING ILLEGAL
You will not start or participate in any debates or discussions that discuss the promotion, enactment or links to Illegal stuff. You will not make posts of illegal nature or posts that detail ways to perform acts of an illegal nature.

15. Have a good Signature/Name/Handle-
If you have a log in or handle like “1122990frv” expect to be called “Numbers” or some such. Try to find something that can be abbreviated or rolls off the tongue.
Your signature should conform to the normal Forum Rules regarding content.
Any signature seen as being overly long or of an offensive nature etc is liable to be removed without notice.
Inflammatory Political Statements or Quotes (as Perceived by BM8 Staff) are not permitted in signatures and will be removed.
BM8 council have the final say over what is deemed appropriate.

16. MODERATION OF THE FORUM
Threads may be moved or altered by staff without your consent.

17. ABSENTEEISM
When you leave a BM8 Battle wing or go inactive for a long time please inform us. You;ll still be in the Bm8 community but may loose your place temporarily in the relevant Battle wing.

18. DONATIONS & MERCHANDISE.
We are an active clan that run servers, a forum, events, and watch out for each other. This all costs money. Any small donations are greatly appreciated and makes a whole lot possible that wouldn’t be otherwise. Please consider giving a few coins to the cause once in a while. Stickers and other merchandise are also available.
