Board rules

These rules are disclosed to clarify the various responsibilities of all community members here on 77th JSOC. They shall be adhered to by everyone to ensure that our board runs smoothly and provides a fun and productive experience for all of our community members and visitors.

  1. Forum Rules & Guidelines

    1. Always be polite. Remember that there is another person on the other side of your screen. As a general rule, never write anything you would not say in person. Treat everyone the way you wish to be treated. #
    2. Foul language is absolutely not permitted. We have a zero tolerance policy with swearing. A red card will be given for each and every offense. Swearing includes use of swear words, abbreviated swearing, netspeak swearing, disguising a swear word with symbols and/or extra letters/numbers. Remember that this is a community-friendly forum. Just because you do not find a word offensive, doesn't mean someone else won't. #
    3. This is the English forum, all posts must be in English. #
    4. Threatening others will not be tolerated. If you are upset enough to resort to threats, take a day to calm down before posting. #
    5. Flaming/insulting other players, members and admins will not be tolerated. Again, If you are upset enough to resort to insults, take a break to calm down before posting. #
    6. Links to outside sites are not allowed. This includes information that references illegal programs of any type. #
    7. Refrain from the spamming of threads and the forum. Spamming includes double posting within a thread, posting the same thread more than once, posting without saying anything constructive to the topic, and cross posting (posting same thread in multiple areas of the forum). #
    8. Do not hijack another player's thread. Always start your own thread with your own questions. Hijacking posts and all answers to the hijack will be deleted and possible infractions issued to all parties involved. #
    9. The use of all caps is considered shouting on the Internet. Please refrain from typing an entire post or sections of a post in all caps. If you wish to convey emotion, change the font color, use bold, underline, and/or italics. #
    10. Thread titles should convey the idea of the thread. Naming a thread help, ???, or your own name is not helping anyone else who may have the same question and is using the search function. #
    11. Always search before posting. Many questions have been asked on the forums and you can find an answer quickly by using the advanced search function or the FAQ Index. #
