    RULES OF THE VINTAGE CLAN FORUMS

    The Short Version

    Admins controls everything. You have no rights. Play nice.

    1. Do not flood the chatbox.

    2. Do not be selfish or a jerk.

    3. Do not do anything at all that may impede normal, reasonable, on-topic discussion.


    The Long Version

    * Spam is prohibited.
    What counts as "spam"?
    "Spam" is defined in different ways on different websites.The term is applied to any post that does not contribute to normal, reasonable, on-topic discussion on these forums. That includes, but is not limited to:

    - All-caps thread titles and/or all-caps posts (unless specifically applicable to the subject of the thread)
    - "Text-message" or "instant-messenger" shorthand posting (unless specifically applicable to the subject of the thread)
    - Alternating caps and lower-case thread titles or posts (eXaMpLe)
    - Threads that only require a one-liner reply such as a number or rank
    - Rick Rolls
    --"inb4[anything]"
    - "youfail," "You Fail," "Epic Fail," "Phail," "youfail.org," or anything even remotely similar
    - Posting "Banned," "Locked," "Enjoy your ban," "This will be locked," or anything similar.
    - Posting "Wall of text," "China called...," "tl;dr," or anything remotely similar
    - ASCII art, such as facepalm, middle finger, the care cup, or anything similar
    - Posts in any language other than readable and intelligible English
    - Forum Games
    - Typing upside down using an online translator
    - Do not "break" the page width or forum formatting by repeating or special characters
    - Posts that attempt to "catch attention" by using all-caps, false hyperlinks, or all-bold/italics/underline.
    - Biased, unfair, irrelevant, non-contributory, or one-sided polls
    - Any other post that does not contribute or encourage normal, intelligent, on-topic discussion as determined by any moderator.

    * Do not create "blog"-style posts unless they are part of a larger on-topic discussion. These topics do not encourage discussion and are therefore spam.
    What counts as a "blog"?
    A "blog" post is the original post in a new thread that merely relates a personal experience that another user can neither agree nor disagree with. In other words, it is a post that can result in nothing but other users "commenting" on that personal experience or relating similar personal experiences, rather than beginning a discussion.

    *Do not flame each other! Use your manners and common sense. If you disagree with someone, do so gracefully.
    What counts as "flaming"?
    The act of "flaming" is the act of attacking or insulting a person who posts, rather than the ideas expressed within the post itself. Your post should remain on-topic and focused on the subject matter of the thread rather than any individual user.

    *Do not troll. Do not feed the trolls!What is "trolling"?
    Trolling is any post designed to evoke an emotional or flaming response instead of an informed, well-reasoned reply. These posts are characterized by broad generalizations and personal accusations about specific people or groups of people rather than a well-reasoned assertion backed up with support. Just a few examples of trolling include:

    - "All level 50s suck"
    - "Kids under 13 have squeaky voices and are all annoying"
    - "MLG players are arrogant"
    - "Halo 3 is the worst game ever created"

    Parody or satire threads are a form of trolling.

    "Do not feed the trolls" means do not respond to trolling, and is also strictly enforced.

    *Do not post off-topic or in the incorrect forum for the subject matter of your post. The forum definitions further down in this thread serve both as a guide and as the binding rules for on- and off-topic posting.

    Suggestions
    * Use a spell checker before posting..
    * Don't use "text-message"-style abbreviations.
    * Use the Search Feature
    * Always check the Pinned Topics. They contain useful information and can answer many questions.

    Thank you for your time.

    Please note the bolded points. Forums Games are prohibited, but soon we may open part of the forum for that. Also, read certain threads rules, that may allow hyperlinks or anything else. Online translators are fine, if you translate your language to ENGLISH ONLY. Also, finally, you HAVE NO RIGHT, to tell someone he'll be banned. Moderators will assure that.
