Gotripperz Forum Rules
« on: August 27, 2014, 02:24:12 AM »

We at Gotripperz feel these guidelines will be useful for the Mods in terms of managing the forums, but just as importantly, we hope they provide users a point of reference with which to understand the basic nature of Gotripperz and also to gauge why a post may have been moderated. The ultimate aim of it all though is to enable you to ENJOY contributing to Gotripperz and also for others to ENJOY your contributions as well.
Its also worth pointing out that:
1. Mods may at times disagree on certain things. In these instance (which are rare anyway), its best to to let them work it out between themselves.
2. What is set out below is a framework, not an absolute set of rules and regulations. It may become necessary at times to moderate posts for reasons that are not outlined below. 

BIG RULES: Things deemed to be totally unacceptable:
  • Pornographic material
  • Racism
  • Spamming is considered as a very serious offense on Gotripperz. It includes one-line replies which have no relevance or do not contribute to the thread in any way.
  • Overt personal abuse of other posters (unless its in jest of course!)
  • Posting the links to any illegal content (illegal torrents, porn, adult content, program cracks, etc) or post any illegal programs or attach them to the forums. Anything unlawful to US laws leads to immediate banning on this forum, as this is not tolerated.
  • Registering and using duplicate accounts whilst banned.
  • All other breaches of the basic Forum T&C's in place at your time of registration or at any time during your membership of Gotripperz
  • Do not Create duplicate threads. Before starting a new thread use the search feature to check that the subject of your intended post is not already covered by an existing thread. Post to existing threads wherever possible. This particularly applies to post match comments.
  • Do not start threads in the wrong forum. We believe the board descriptions on the index page are fairly self explanatory, but feel to ask a mod if you are not sure.
  • Please title threads accurately in order to represent the subject matter that they contain.
  • Sensitive discussions involving politics or religion are to be avoided, due to their highly subjective nature, which can lead to volatile and inconclusive debates.
  • While the Gotripperz Support takes decisions only with a community-centric attitude, public threads / discussions on Administrative decisions & Moderator actions are not permitted. For any clarifications, Gotripperz members are free to use the Contact Us form.
  • Thread domination (ooer). Do not try to bully someone into submission or disparage every comment they make, simply because their views may differ from your own. Write a coherent reply setting out your views and then let others have their say.
  • "Spinning" news reports/interviews. Use thread titles that are appropriate to the article, rather than putting your own spin on it. This is not a tabloid newspaper, people are intelligent enough to draw their own conclusions on articles.
  • No personal attacks on any member will be entertained. This includes any direct / indirect attempt at trolling. All members are part of the Gotripperz Family and any discriminating or derogatory comment will be dealt with severely.
  • Anonymous Sourcing. Anonymous sourcing is also discouraged on Gotrippers
What to expect in terms of moderation:

If you ignore any of the BIG RULES, you'll will find yourself being moderated in one of the following ways (depending on each instance):
  • Temporary or Full access ban.
  • Temporary posting ban.
If you ignore any of the Guidelines, in the first instance you'll be notified by a moderator, who will let you know what it is they deemed to be inappropriate. Your post(s) are also likely to be edited/deleted or merged with others.

If you continue to ignore the Guidelines, you'll will find yourself being moderated in one of the following ways (depending on each instance):
  • Temporary or Full access ban.
  • Temporary posting ban.
  • The above may also apply to posts reported to us via the 'Report To Moderator' feature.
What Users can expect from the Mods:
  • Where possible/applicable, new users will be given a polite pointer to these guidelines if we deem it necessary.
  • An explanation as to why you have been temporally/permanently banned/had posting rights removed.
  • We wont notify people of every little modification/deletion/merging activity. We're hoping that people will be able to find an answer in these guidelines. If however you cant, please feel free to ask why you have been moderated. Our preference would be for this to be done privately, but there is also the Feedback forum if you wish it to be a public discussion. Please note though, we're all volunteers, so if you do not receive an immediate response bear with us and wait for us to get back to you.
  • An explanation may be given for why a thread is locked or moved to another forum.
  • Moderators also reserves the right to not answer your any query in terms of Ban
Do not forget to read our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service

Thanks for your anticipated co-operation,

Gotripperz Team
