PostPosted: Mon Jan 22, 2007 11:01 pm    Post subject: Kevin's Watch Rules and Guidelines - Revised Reply with quote

Please take a minute or two to read through the Guidelines below. They have been updated to make the whole experience better for both you and for our team of moderators; if everyone follows these Guidelines, the moderators really won't need to step in at all! Violators may be warned, suspended from posting, or barred from the forums

KW is a place where you can have your say, voice an opinion on current affairs or meet up with friends. Just choose one of the forums and see what's going on.

Please follow the common sense guidelines below:


Things you should probably not do, or else you will be mocked endlessly by Jay who will hack into your account and make you look silly, you twit !
    Try to avoid over-sized avatars that mess with the layout of the forum - actually, this has been fixed because I used my Demondim Spawn powers and limited the size anyway
    Try to avoid fancy animated avatars - keep them to a reasonable size for our dial-up members (not everybody has broadband) - again, this has been fixed because I disabled the remote avatar linky thingy
    Try to avoid images in sigs - small ones are cool and keep it to one image only please. I don't have a techno gizmo to limit this so will edit your sig if yours too large
    Try to avoid overly long sigs - they just make you scroll down for longer to read the posts
    - Oh yes, try limit total sig height to no more than that which will be used up by 10 lines of text in the normal board font


General courtesy guidelines
    Do be civilized and considerate.
    Do try and express your thoughts carefully and clearly.
    Do be sure to read what the other person is actually saying and not what you think they may be saying.
    Don't post when intoxicated! You'll find it harder to keep to the guidelines! Smile
    Do try to keep messages on-topic and post on the appropriate topic board.
    Don't duplicate existing topics elsewhere.
    Do watch what you say – you are responsible for what you write.
    Don't post personal information about yourself (phone numbers, address etc) - it's for your own safety.
    Do respect the Moderators' decisions – KW Moderators reserve the right to edit, relocate and/or remove any message, at any time, for any reason. All editing decisions should be considered final.
    Do remember that the KW discussion forums are moderated by a group of people who have volunteered to put themselves in the position of making difficult judgement calls. Following these guidelines/rules makes their life easier, and everyone's experience visiting KW better.

More serious guidelines - May result in a warning from a moderator and a temporary suspension/permanent ban

    Don't get personal; a good general rule: "criticize ideas, not people".
    Don't post personal/racial/ethnic/gender-based insults, slurs or offensive comments.
    Don't make posts that are inflammatory just to wind people up.
    Don't post contact details e.g. phone numbers and physical address details, or post other peoples e-mail addresses unless you have their permission to do so.
    Don't make slanderous statements, or anything else that might violate someone's privacy.
    Don't threaten other users. Threats will not be tolerated
    If you have an issue with someone, take it up in private with that person. KW isn't here for you to air your personal grieveances with any member of KW - if you insist on doing this then your post will get zapped and the offending account disabled.




A note on bans:
A ban may be temporary or permanent. If you receive a permanent ban well then you probably deserved it. If you receive a temporary ban then take the time to chill out, drink beer, read a book, feed the kids, have a shower, do some work - you'll feel so much better for it Smile


Amendment

OK, because we don't actually like banning people, we have an alternative option if warranted and recommended by the mod squad (maybe we should call them the ur-vile wedge....hrmmmmm).

Forum restrictions (as opposed to a ban)

A forum restriction will come into effect if someone violates the general guidelines and the forum moderator/s feel that a specific forum restriction is called for instead of a full board-wide suspension. So, in essence, if you're restricted from posting in say General discussion, then you can still post in all the other forums (ain't it cool !!)

Forum restrictions will apply for a default period of one week - no more and no less

Jay will deliver all forum restriction messages to whoever it applies to. If jay isn't available then either danlo or myself will (but we hope that jay will be online 24/7 so that he can do the dirty deed).

Of course, we don't have the techno-gizmos to prevent anybody from posting in a specific forum so we'll have to rely on an honour system (i.e. you just don't) Any continued posting in a forum will by default result in a week long board-wide suspension - this includes from duplicate accounts

Carrying the issue over to any other KW forums isn't cool either so please don't do it otherwise jay will need to use his banstick for that mandatory one week board wide ban

...and no, Luci, hearthrall antonicus was not lurch, nor related to him. Sadly, HA has not been heard from in many moons. His invention, MELMA, has fallen by the wayside.

lurch, OTOH, has reappeared and is as abstruse as ever...

They're liberal about such things in NZ, null. Dilly dallying (as well as other perverse varients on consorting with fermented and seasoned cucumbers) is considered a matter of personal orientation.

As we both know, in Texas, it can get you strung up from the nearest tree...were there any around.

Laughing Vain's not in SA. He's in Kiwi-Land. Anyway, we don't dilly-dally in SA. Everybody knows we operate on Africa Time. Wink
