Forum Rules


Each
user agrees with his/her registration to the following forum rules. The
moderation team holds up the right to warn, mute, censor, ban, suspend
users, and delete topics and posts if the users do not follow the rules.


1. Account Related


  1. Every
    user may register and use one account. Multiple registrations and usage
    of several accounts will lead to permanent suspension of all new
    accounts and a long but temporary suspension of the old account. An
    exception would be if you cannot recover your old account. Note: If you want a forum name change request, we have created a thread on Spam Section. 1 user - 2 forum name change requests only.
  2. Making a new account for the sake of changing your display name is not allowed. Apply rule #1.
  3. Any
    attempt to circumvent any moderator action such as a mute or a ban will
    lead to a permanent ban of the new account and additional ban duration
    for the old one. Circumvention includes re-registering or using an
    already registered account under a non-banned account.
  4. Each
    member must only use one account and each account must only be used by
    one member. If ever two users or more share a single account, the
    account may be temporarily banned. In cases where both users switch and
    one lends his account to the other, both accounts may be temporarily
    banned. Apply Rule #1
  5. Impersonation of staff members or any other
    users is strictly not allowed. If the user unintentionally uses a
    similar display name to a staff member or a user, the user may be given a
    chance to change his display name.


2. General Rules


  1. The forum language is English/Filipino. Other languages may be used freely only in the International Sections.
  2. New
    threads are to be made in the relevant forum. Users are required to
    read the forum descriptions before creating a new thread. Users
    consistently posting on the wrong forum may be given a warning. Posting
    in wrong sections will not get you the right kind of attention you need
    such as delays on your ban support request if you posted in general
    talk.
  3. Posting contents and links of pornographic,
    politically extremist, immoral and offensive material which may breach
    applicable laws are forbidden. It is also not allowed to post keys,
    hacks, cracks or other things of illegal nature, including illegal
    download pages and "warez". Discussion of such items will lead to an
    immediate warning.
  4. SPAM - Stupid Pointless Annoying
    Messages. Posting of contents which do not belong to the topic/relevant
    forum (Spam/Off Topic) are undesired and may lead to a warning and/or
    mute. An exception of this is the SPAM Section. Please keep all your
    posts as constructive as possible.
  5. Bumping threads and
    posts that do not have any content at all is also not allowed. This
    includes double, triple quadruple posting and so on. Bumping is also
    considered as double posting and may be warned by the moderation staff.
  6. Backseat
    moderation or acting like a moderator is not allowed. It is when you
    post only to point out a breach of the rules or requesting action from
    the moderation team such as "Requesting to close the thread". It is
    another form of spam. Only the author of the thread can request for
    thread closure if his/her request has been answered. Use the report
    button if you want to bring the post to the moderation team's attention.
    Constant backseat moderation may be warned.
  7. Spamming of
    emoticons and images is not allowed due to the fact that it may freeze
    peoples' browsers. Images or posts which are side exceeding (means one
    has to scroll vertically or/and horizontally to read the whole post) are
    not allowed.
  8. Contents, links, usernames etc. with the
    only aim to flame and insult other users of the community are forbidden.
    Same goes for trolling: posts solely intended to annoy other people or
    incite flames.
  9. Contents of inappropriate language and excessive cursing are not allowed.
  10. Plagiarism
    is not tolerated in this forum. Make sure you include proper credits to
    anything you copy from the internet. If you cannot identify the
    original authors, include a note saying where it is from or that the
    work is not yours.
  11. Advertisement and linking to other RAN servers is not allowed on the whole forum.
  12. Links to games with the aim to count every visitor are not allowed. (Bite Links) e.g Dragoncave and Soul Stealing
    Misuse
    of the report button is forbidden. Game reports must be posted in
    Report Abuses. The report button shall not be a means to contact or seek
    attention from any staff members for personal matters. Use it only for
    posts that you think is breaking a rule. Such misuse may be warned
    and/or muted.
  13. Any attempt to circumvent the forum bad
    word filter will not be tolerated including posting avatars, forum names
    or signatures that contain a word that is censored by the bad word
    filter. Modification of words or the use of abbreviations is considered a
    warn worthy offense.
  14. Threads of petitioning for game
    features, additions, updates, or website and forum changes are not
    tolerated. Such posts will be removed or closed without warning. The
    forums contains an Suggestion Section that may be used to post your
    ideas, but creating petitions for others to sign is considered another
    form of "bumping".
  15. Discussions regarding religion
    containing ill content are strictly prohibited. This usually leads to
    buildings getting blown up and airplanes crashed. Such posts will be
    removed without warning and your account will be permanently banned.
  16. Creating
    multiple threads regarding the same topic is considered spam. Post in
    the existing thread. This applies to those who do not know where to post
    their threads. Do not create your thread and post it in multiple
    sections hoping for more attention, this may only get you a warning.
  17. ABABAB
    talking is not allowed. If 2 persons have a decent discussion however,
    where each post contains good content, this may be tolerated. But if
    users start to post and make the thread look like their personal
    chatroom, a warning may be issued against them. An exception is the SPAM
    section.
  18. Harassment is the act of attacking other
    people physically, mentally, sexually, and socially. In this case, you
    can be doing any one of those with the words you write or the images you
    post. Although we cannot see it, but other members have feelings too
    and harassment may affect their real lives. Users who harass other users
    will be given a harsher punishment compared to other offenses.
  19. Reviving
    old topics that have not been replied to in a month is not allowed. It
    would be better if you quote posts or get the general idea of the
    earlier thread and create a new one. The Ideas & Feedbacks section
    however is an exception since these are important and may still be
    useful no matter how old they are. Pinned topics are also an exception.
  20. Racial,
    ethnic, gender based insults or any other personal discrimination is
    strictly not allowed. This includes posting the word "Nazi" or images of
    "Swastikas" or anything similar.
  21. Status updates are not
    to be used for spam. Spam updates may be removed without warning. It is
    also neither a support channel nor a marketplace. Please use the
    appropriate forum if you need support or if you want to buy or sell
    something.



3. Signature Guidelines

Signatures
are images and text that are automatically placed on the bottom of each
and every one of your posts. But keep in mind that a signature should
also be small, neat and appropriate. To make that true, we ask that you
follow these guidelines, if you do not, you may find yourself with an
ugly signature (seen below), or a signature removal with a message from
the Moderator that removed it.



  1. Your
    signature cannot exceed the size of 500 x 300 pixels and a file size of
    500kb. That includes all images and text you place in your signature. A
    single line of normal font text counts as 16px added to the total height
    of your signature. Depending on font size, the size of your signature
    will increase. Highlight the text, hit printscreen and measure the
    highlighted area in paint or photoshop for the exact space it occupies.
  2. No
    offensive pictures and/or text allowed. Such examples are pictures
    and/or text that have curse words, someone flipping off, other offensive
    words, symbols etc. This applies to avatars as well.
  3. No
    sexual explicit or too suggestive pictures and/or text allowed. Such
    examples include picture and/or text displaying undergarment (panties,
    lingerie etc.), human/animal/alien/etc genitalia, butts and breasts,
    pornographic-like materials etc. This applies to avatars as well.
  4. No
    advertisements, scary images and/or other material that may breech
    other forum rules. You may not advertise other servers; this includes
    placing images and/or text that has the name of the server and/or a link
    to the server. Do not place scary images such as gore, blood, et
    cetera, we have some sensitive and young people here and we do not need
    to see something like that. This applies to avatars as well.
  5. The
    word "Signature" is pretty much self explanatory. No user may copy
    another user's signature for the purpose of impersonation.
  6. An
    example of a perfect size image signature. Right click the image and
    click properties to know it's size. Total size should be 500 x 300
    pixels. If you for any reason use more than one image in your signature,
    please remember that all of it must fit in the example below. Lines of
    text will also be added depending on font size.






In
some cases, signatures may be removed without a warning. Repeat
offenders will be thrown in a small room measuring 500x300 pixels. It's
very, very painful.


4. Game Related


  1. The
    forum will not be used for RMT(Real Money Trades) or commonly known as
    PHP Dealing. Posts that contain RMTs will be permanently banned from the
    forum.
  2. Any posts that singles out a player to issue a
    slanderous comment regarding an issue that started in-game will be
    removed from the general view without any warning. Continued posting
    such slander will be considered as ongoing harassment and will not be
    tolerated by the forum moderators. Posts such as these may be warned and
    or mute by a moderator and if necessary the account suspension of the
    poster.


5. Moderation Team, User Responsibility, Moderation and Final Notes


  1. Each
    user agrees to the rules after registration therefore they have to obey
    the rules. If you feel you have been warned unfairly, first contact the
    Moderator who gave the warning. If you are not contented on the
    moderator's response or if you have not received a reply within 3 days
    you may contact a Global Moderator. In extreme cases, you have the right
    to directly contact the Administrator. The Admin's word is final.
  2. You
    are to respect all staff members. If a moderator is found abusing
    his/her powers, you need to report it to an administrator or a moderator
    of a higher status. If a moderator gives you a warning for something
    that you think is invalid, the right to prove them wrong is yours.
  3. Please
    report a staff member via private message. Do not publicly discuss
    these cases or humiliate the accused staff members. If proven guilty,
    action will be taken discretely.
  4. Punishments increase
    when the same offense is repeated. If the same offense is repeated too
    many times, an account suspension will be issued instead of just a mute.
  5. Suspensions
    and bans for an offense cannot be given if the user has not received a
    warning for it first. A warning is a warn level increase without a
    punishment such as a mute. A Mute, is a punishment included in a warning
    if you have been warned before for the same offense. If a user is
    understandably new or unfamiliar with the forums, a warning may be
    issued without a warn level increase.
  6. Depending on the severity of the case, a punishment may be issued despite the stated above.
  7. All forum moderators reserve the right to punish users on offenses not found in this post.
  8. All forum moderators reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason.
  9. All rules posted in this forum are subject to change without prior notice.
  10. Moderators
    are allowed to change offensive forum names without prior notice to the
    user. If the user wishes to have a different forum name, they will be
    required to complete community service. ( Use the name Member, Member1,
    etc )
