We use a warning system on rollaclub. Its the little line in the column underneath your name and avatar. There are 10 levels of warning. Each bar represents 20% and one warning increment is 10%. The first bar will illuminate at 10%, the second bar at 30% and so on. If you reach 40% (and hopefully you never will) you will be suspended for 48hrs. If you reach 80% you will recieve a 1 week suspension. Should you hit 100% you will be banned and your future involvement with rollaclub reviewed. In this document "warned" refers to incrementing the warning system by 10 percent.
1.0.0 General posting guidelines
1.1.0 Keep it on topic, If you can't contribute to the topic at hand please don't post. Threads that get out of hand are usually moved to the off-topic area and offenders may recieve warnings as admin/moderators see fit. Occasionally they are deleted completely.
1.2.0 Before starting a new topic do a search where nessicary to see if its been covered before. If you can't be bothered to help yourself, neither can we. You may recieve warnings if you don't search.
1.3.0 don't write in leet speak or SMS style. We don't charge by the letter and theres a great big monitor to read full words. This can be very annoying to try and decypher and you will recieve warnings where admins/mods see fit. lnk cr b82rez 2g4 "Me was tryin' to save time."
1.4.0 TYPING ALL IN CAPITALS IS REALLY REALLY ANNOYING SO PLEASE don't DO IT.
1.5.0 Please read your post before you hit the button. Post as much information as you can so people know what you are on about. Check your spelling, you will be visited by the spelling fairy (pictured below) if you repeatedly ignore requests to fix your spelling. Occasional slip ups are fine, we're not perfect, but at least try and make it look like you passed english. Please try to use punctuation. Even if you don't know exactly how to do it perfectly, try to break up your posts. Its very hard to read one long sentence that spans several lines. Repeat offenders may be warned.
1.6.0 Check the date if you've searched for a thread and want to reply. Often people dig up threads from many months ago and this is frowned upon. If you feel the thread has life left in it, perhaps think about starting a new one.
1.7.0 IF YOUR THREAD GETS CLOSED OR DELETED, DO NOT start another one unless an admin/mod has said so. It got locked/deleted for a reason.
1.8.0Deliberately inflammatory posts (trolling) may be deleted.
2.0.0 General Conduct
2.1.0 Debates are good, arguments are not. Admins and mods will take action if they feel its getting heated. This could be as simple as asking people to stop, locking the thread and in severe cases giving people "time outs" (suspensions).
2.2.0 Research your idea/conversion/problem first. Its quite possible its been covered before either on rollaclub or somewhere else on the web. If you show absolutely no signs of having researched you probably wont recieve any replys and your thread may be locked by a moderator/admin asking you to do some research and try again. We're not here to serve up answers on a silver platter. We help those who help themselves.
2.3.0 Racist, sexist or other offensive posts wont be tolerated. You may be banned outright.
2.4.0 If someone is abusing or harassing you contact an administrator and they will investigate. Give as much detail as possible.
2.5.0 Please don't start a conversation in open forum threads. We have a PM system which enables you to send your message to multiple people (there is a limit to prevent spamming). Use the PM system for these conversations.
2.6.0 We have ZERO tolerance for SPAMMING (unsolicited advertisements). You will be banned immediatly without warning.
2.7.0 If someone is abusing personal messages please forward the message to an administrator with a brief explaination.
2.8.0 Multiple User accounts will not be tolerated, you may only create one account from one IP address, if you require 2 accounts for whatever reason, pm one of the admin.
3.0.0 Admins, Moderators, associated services and actions
3.1.0 Administrators and Moderators are here to keep the site running smoothly. They donate their time and effort so you may enjoy the forums. They do NOT owe you ANYTHING!
3.2.0 They may delete, edit, move, close any post or topic they see fit.
3.3.0 Questioning or abusing moderators and administrators about their actions will not be tolerated. While sometimes effort is taken to explain their actions this is not always the case and often takes up alot of time. They don't owe you an explaination for every action they take. If youre friendly about it you might receive a reply. If youre nasty or do it in a negative tone they will warn you for it.
3.4.0 IF you have a dispute/complaint, take it up with an Administrator.
3.5.0 Admins and moderators scrutinize eachothers work, they don't need you to keep a watchful eye. Every action is logged anyway so leave them do their work.
3.6.0 Use of the "Report post" button for anything other than reporting a post which breaches the rules will result in a warning being added. We don't like receiving your personal messages to the moderating team.
3.7.0 don't add moderators or admins to your MSN or other instant messaging list unless youve asked them in a PM first.
3.8.0 If youve been banned, don't complain. We give you plenty of chances to do the right thing.
3.9.0 Failing to comply with administrators or moderators requests may get you banned.
3.10.0 Arguing with an admin or moderator is also a good way to get yourself banned.
3.11.0 Avoiding a ban will result in a re-ban
3.12.0 By posting you revoke any claim or copyright to posted material, text, images or other content.
3.13.0 Account deletion requests may require a 7 day cooling off period.
4.0.0 Avatars and Signatures
4.1.0 Please keep them clean. Some people like to browse rollaclub at work and having obscene avatars or signatures makes this difficult.
4.2.0 Keep your signatures nice and trim, theres nothing worse than having signatures filling the screen. As a good guide keep them under 10 lines and images under 150 pixels, but don't have 10 lines and 150 pixels.
4.3.0 No commercial advertising unless you have prior approval from Administrators. Please contact irokin for more information
4.4.0 You may link to your personal website however admins may remove it if they deem it to be unsuitable.
5.0.0 For Sale Areas
5.1.0 Please provide your location. This is an international forum and we can't guess where you are from. Make sure you specify where you are or where the item(s) are located. Items without a location specified may be deleted without notice.
5.2.0 Please provide a statement of the condition of the item(s).
5.3.0 Make sure you specify a price! We want to know how much you want for the item (or how much you want to pay)
5.4.0 No auctions! This isn't eBay.
5.5.0 Submit pictures of the item for sale if possible.
5.6.0 Sales are for personal items only, commercial traders should use the commercial traders section, Information Here. Unapproved commercial sales or suspected commercial sales will be deleted and the user warned for each offence.
5.6.1 Group buys without prior approval from an administrator will be considered a commercial sale and treated as such.
5.7.1 EOI is not permitted in the for sale areas. All items should be accompanied by a price
5.8.0 You may only "bump" (reply) your item every 72 hours (3 days) or your item(s) will be removed. No bumps are allowed within the first 72 hours of posting your item. Excess "bumping" is unnecessary, very annoying and unfair to other advertisers.
5.9.0 don't hijack other peoples for sale or wanted to buy threads. If you've got something for sale, start your own thread. If something is offered to someone in a wanted to buy thread the original poster gets first preference. Admins and moderators will warn people for this as its in unacceptable. Repeat offenders will be banned.
5.10.0 The Market Place section is not for Auctioning items, Please post your sales price up front. Failure to do so will result in your post being deleted.
5.11.0 DO NOT POST UNLESS you are actually interested in buying what the seller is offering. Posts like "Nice car good luck" are rubbish. Your post may be deleted and you may be warned.
5.12.0 For Sale, WTB, etc threads are to be ONLY posted in the For Sale area. Please don't post them in the Region forums.
5.13.0 eBay Items are to be only posted in the eBay area found under "Off topic". Posting them in the for sale area will result in a warning.
5.14.0 Rollaclub Administration is not and WILL NOT be held liable for fraudulent traders, we only provide the service. By using this service, you agreed to waive Rollaclub of any liability arising from any situation arising from use of the For Sale areas. If a scam or fraudulent situation should arise, we will assist you with any forensic evidence we can gather to help the police track an offender down. Please advise us immediately if you suspect you have been scammed so that we can take action to stop the offender and gather information as soon as possible.
These are the rules. They're not hard to follow. Admins and Moderators will be reasonable, but remember that its a PRIVILEGE NOT A RIGHT to post on rollaclub. If you want to act like a moron, find somewhere else because we wont put up with it here. By making any posts you agree that you have read and understand these rules. Ignorance will not be accepted as an excuse. These rules may change without notice.
