codersCommunity Official Rules
These rules are designed to keep the forum clean and make sure there is no spam around the forum. Warnings will be used from now on.
Proboards Terms of Service
You are required to follow the Proboards Terms of Service when posting on any forum or using any forum hosted by ProBoards.com. The terms of service can be read here.
If you see a post which offends you in any way big or small please report it and the staff will decide what warning to place on the user if any.
Any swearing, bullying or not nice language which could make a user unhappy or hurt won't be tolerated.
You must be at least 13 or over to join a forum hosted by Proboards. If you are not, you will be banned from the forum. This is something set by the Proboards staff, and we must abide. For more information google search "COPPA LAW".
Mini-modding on this forum is not allowed. This is a member acting like a member of staff telling users off or telling them what they can or can't do. This is our moderators job, not our members
Spam will not be tolerated. This involves; advertising your forum repeatedly in all your posts, double posting, posting short messages (some are ok, like you might be saying yes to a question which is ok, but doing it in all your posts isn't allowed) . Putting smilies after every-word is regarded as spam. Here ;D is an example
We understand that some of you may not speak English as a first language or that your spelling isn't too good when your on an iPod, iPad, iPhone or a phone (don't worry I'm one of them) but if your on a laptop, you should hopefully see little red underline under the words that are spelt wrong. It keeps the forum looking nice and doesn't mean we get messages like: Hai wut u up 2 etc.
As stated by the Proboards TOS, no user should discuss sex, drugs, pornography or any form of discrimination (racism, gender etc...). Illegal services, like torrents and emulators are also not allowed. Anyone caught discussing such items, will be warned and/or banned.
ADVERTISING & RECEIVING FEEDBACK
Feedback must only be given if the forum reprecentative creates a post into the "Get Feedback" sub-board located within the advertisement board. Feedback located in a site advertisement will be counted as spam and will be removed immediately.
HOW OUR WARNING SYSTEM WORKS.......
Users who break any of these rules will get a warning in %. If it's your first time you might just get a PM notifying which rule you broke and where. DON'T BE OFFENDED IF WE WARN YOU, IT JUST KEEPS THE FORUM CLEAN AND LOOKING HAPPY! If you are repeatedly breaking the rules staff will decide what sort of warning you will receive.
Thank you for taking the time to read our rules. We are doing what we think is best for you, and our forum. If you have any questions, feel free to PM the administrator.
