|Subject: Forum Rules (Must Read) Sat 21 Aug 2010, 3:56 pm|| |
We here at Nightmare-Factory are very elitist and strict assholes. We pride ourselves on running one of the most darkest yet entertaining forums on the internet. This is accomplished by charging a $10 fee for our V.I.P sections to filter out folks not serious about adhering to the rules, and banning those who manage to slip through and break them. We are very serious about keeping our forums clean and troll-free, so please consider your account an investment and treat it accordingly. Read the rules, use common sense, and help keep Nightmare-Factory Forums the best message board on the internet!General ConductLurk before posting! We cannot stress this enough. Be sure you have the appropriate forum before posting. If there is no forum dedicated to the topic you wish to discuss, use Ghastly Discussions. Additionally, please check to see if your post is a redux (it has already been posted before by another forum member).
Before you post: Before posting, please ask yourself the following question: "Am I making a post which is either funny, informative, or interesting on any level?"
If you can answer "yes" to this, then please post. If you cannot, then refrain from posting.
Before you reply: Before replying, please ask yourself the following question: "Does my reply offer any significant advice or help contribute to the conversation in any fashion?"
If you can answer "yes" to this, then please reply. If you cannot, then refrain from replying.
Content Theft: This is the one rule that if you break it then you will be perma banned and reported to your Internet service provider for content theft. ( This includes loaning your account and password to someone to gain access to our content. )
Low Content Posts: Please do not make posts containing no content (ie, "first post," "hello, I'm new here," etc.). These just litter up the forums and with as many registered users that we have that just becomes a pain in the ass for everyone , we need to eliminate these as much as possible.
As a general rule, write as if you were speaking in real life to another human being.
Worthless Posts: Please do not register gimmick accounts and make posts as a gimmick, as they are not funny. Please do not post crap asking us to vote for you on some website, give you referrals for free iPods / flatscreens / spare tires, or any other semi-spam things. You will be banned for these type of accounts.
Forum Fuckery: Don't fuck up the forums or any user on the forums. If you post a malicious link (any URL with spyware or code designed to annoy people) you will be banned. Do not vote spam a thread with your friends because you don't like the person who posted it; this makes the voting feature useless. Do not make plans to annoy / destroy other forums.
Stay On Target: Try to use the appropriate thread tag for your post. This helps people find your thread and makes the forums more user friendly.
Respect the Mods and Writers: The moderators are here to keep the forums safe, sane, and secure. If they ask you to do something, please do it. Please do not harass or intentionally annoy the mods or insult any of the page writers. If you do not like the mods or the moderation, feel free to not post here.
Harass and Sass: If somebody is harassing you on the forums then discuss it with them over PM or email before contacting a mod about it. Flames and insults do not constitute harassment. Please do not post others' personal information (phone number, addresses, emails, etc.). Try to stay out of other peoples' personal lives as well. Keep in mind there's a good distinction between the Internet and real life.
Account Ability: Only one person may use a forum account. Account sharing is a bannable offense, so please keep your password secure.
Crazy Catchall: Please do not try to cleverly circumvent some rule listed here. These rules are put into place to protect our members so Nightmare-Factory can be a place for all that love the dark.
Nightmare-Factory Freedoms: You cannot post illegal material, harass others by posting their personal information, spam thread subject lines to break the forum tables, harass any admins or mods, or start forum invasions in Nightmare-Factory.
