The Codex of The Temple - Rules of Behaviour
« on: May 15, 2007, 07:40:24 PM »
Rules

1. Respect
1.1. Discrimination based on race, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, or religious/spiritual beliefs will NOT be allowed.
1.2. Be respectful of the opinions of the other posters; if you disagree discuss in a civilized manner, and never resort to personal attacks.
1.3. The forums are open to the discussion of all subtypes of Roguelikes, including traditional turn-based roguelikes, action roguelikes ("roguelites") and, in general, procedural games with meta-progression. The debate of "what a roguelike is" has gone for ages, don't think you hold the ultimate truth about it. Do not bash people if their definition doesn't fit with yours.

2. Writing / Formatting
2.1. Make your best to write correct English, use punctuation marks, take your time to check the spelling. This is a turn-based world, there's no need to hurry
2.2. Do not deliberately make your posts inaccessible or hard to read (for example writing in ALL-CAPS, excesive formatting or "l337 writing")
2.3. Do not use foul language

3. Profiles
3.1. Images in signatures may be fancy in other places. Not here :)
3.2. Avatars are cool, but please keep them in context, do not use sexually explicit images and/or anything else that could be generally disliked. If in doubt, ask your nearest moderator.

4. Content
4.1. Discussion of topics unrelated to roguelikes, such as politics and religion is not allowed.
4.2. Advertising your roguelike is allowed, limit your promotion posts to 1 per week and keep a single thread for all your updates.

Moderation

Moderators at their discretion are enabled to proceed as follows:
  • Delete the content of offending posts and threads, replacing them with the text: "(Deleted as offensive)", at their discretion.
  • Delete subsequent posts regarding the discussion about deletion from the offender.

Executive Actions

Failure to comply with the above runs will result in warnings and ultimately a permanent ban if your behavior continues.

Perhaps add a basic spell checking check box? Though I haven't seen too much in the way of terrible grammar or spelling so far -remarkable really.

I believe the phrase you are looking for is "punctuation marks".

Also, us -> use in section 3.2.

Oh c'mon just delete that bot already

Do not use leet writing (or, as it's more commonly called, leetspeak). It's a way of writing that replaces letters with numbers in an attempt to look cool and like a 1337 h4x0r.

I agree with all your suggestions and would further suggest as advised by lavastine that a spell check option should be included

1.1. Roguelikers don't like trolls. Their favorite sport is to hunt trolls for some gold pieces or a miserable weapon.  Don't take this risk.

Oh, damn...
Fame (Untitled) - my game. Everything is a roguelike.

Due to recent concerns expressed to me:  How's about we get an addendum to 1, or at least 1.1, centered around knocking off any sexist/exclusionary/etc drivel that is more likely to discourage all sorts of people from posting than foster any manner of meaningful discussion?

I'd sooner prefer to not ban people outside of a spammer bot context, so it'd be swell if folks can just bear it in mind going forward after today so I need not trouble myself on deleting posts or worse.   Unless Slash has some other thoughts on the matter?

I really have to agree with this. Many topics get completely ruined by inappropriate discussion.

I tend to post little these days. Seems like you can't discuss anything without Krice taking a shit on everyone. Even reddit has a more positive vibe.

Hey, that's an attack on a person. My "sexist" (read: accurate) opinions are just that, an opinion. If you want to use a rule where some opinions are not "right" then I'm going to leave here myself.
