A chocolate a day keeps the doctor away!


« on: November 06, 2010, 09:37:51 pm »

    
Even though we are pretty cool and laid-back forum, we still need a few rules to maintain a stable and harmonious atmosphere newyear

1. There will be no censorship of bad words, links or opinions. I assume that the people who come to this forum can deal with reality and don't need it to be sugarcoated by a mod or admin first. But use your common sense! Posting links to any pornographic or illegal material will be censored of course.

2. Excessive swearing is not allowed. Swearing in genaral is neither liked, nor approved, but it is tolerated if it happens rarely. While I am OK if someone includes words like *butt*, *poo* or piss off once in a while, it is not allowed to exaggerate. Again: use your common sense!  

3. Please abide by common forum etiquette. It is forbidden to insult other members (may they be from this forum or another) or attack them personally because of their opinion. BlaBla, you all know the rest..  ie. other members are not "dumbos" or "bitches". Posts like that will be edited immediately.  

4. Please at least try to stay on topic, do not double post, but use the modify button and don't quote the whole post above yourself, we would prefer it if you use the ^ sign rather then quote the post directly above yours. And do not post pictures directly into the post, use the links.

5. Regarding avatar and signature sizes: avatars may be up to 140pixels and maximum of 40KB. Maximum signature size is 100KB.
 
6. Refrain of any kind of extreme political, religious or racial statements in your posts.

7. This forum considers every text of a post an opinion, even if IMO or IMHO is not written in the text. Opinions are free speech and non of the posters considers it fact. Therefore no libel here of any poster. The name says it all: Gossip

8. If we see that a discussion is getting to heated we can decide to close a topic for a while so that tempers can cool and we have the time to eventually clean-up the posts.

That's it Cool happy posting!  
If you have any questions please use the FAQ topic or pm a mod or admin.


Additional Information regarding posting

I have set the curtesy time until it will show that you edited your post to 3 minutes.

You have 7 minutes total time to edit your post. Which is should be sufficient.

I set up a Karma field of each member, but you need a minimum of 10 posts to vote. I called it chocolate bars and every member can feed another one chocolate or let it starve.  

The default settings can be changed at your profile. "Look and Layout Preferences"  ie. you might want to check the boxes: "Return to topics after posting by default" and "Show most recent personal messages at top."

Unfortunately Spell Check does not seem to work on this server. The members who want a spell checker can install an add-on with alternative browser like Firefox. You can also download and install the Google toolbar to use with Internet Explorer, which includes a spell checker.

membergroups:
Newbie            0  posts  and is allowed max. 10 personal messages
royal watcher   10 posts
gossip insider    50 posts
courtier           100 posts
Baroness         200 posts
Countess         500 posts
Princess         1.000posts

update:
I have just edited the permissions of guests. They are not allowed to view a member's profile, summary and recent posts. But since the "other forum" banned me for setting up this forum I have become a little overprotective of the members here...

And the games section and Off-topic board does not count posts anymore.

Forum rules can be updated as well as the design. If this happens then I will edit it into this post.

This forum "Royal Gossip" is not responsible for the content of external sites linked to from the forum and the opinions expressed in this forum do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the forum's owner or its server.

^I know! hall-Spell-check I don't know how to change it. And I was bluffing. wopedo I can only give permission to the whole group of "regular members" -which includes everyone. So I either grant the whole group to view profiles or not. I will try to create a new group on post counts where I can restrict newbies from viewing profiles, but I haven't had the time yet...
I was hoping nobody would figure it out until I have time and knowledge to change it.  Cool

Poor Chocolate Princess.  I imagine it takes some time to figure everything out.

Quotes about Waity/Waste-y Katie:
On Kate's so called career and work ethic; a coworker from Jigsaw when Kate was working said this: "A fellow staff member said: "Kate is a nice enough girl but she was never what you might call committed to the job.She never worked full-time and appeared to take an inordinate amount of time off to go jetting round the world with her boyfriend."

Thank you Varya honey BFF2   .....and to the rest of you ungrateful goofy members: snob 

Just so you know, I don't have that feature. NOwhy I can only give special permissions to Guests, Regular Members and the membergroups like Moderators who are not based on post count. bored3

Not sure... but I think the minimum is 80 posts but don't hit me if I'm wrong!  hide
I think in the end TCP linked it to a certain group: gossip insider

You do need to post a certain amount to view other profiles.

It is just so that people cannot just join the forum then peek at people's profiles and never post (like one person did  hall-whistle)

It is just as much about your privacy and protection as anything else

!!Update on the forum rules!

After getting more and more annoyed by the general language in some topic's I decided to add a few more word's to our cencor list:
It's 11 word's long at the moment and each censored word will appear between two *

If you use three of these term's within a week or less the mod's (me, alex) will give you a warning pm, after three warning's you'll be banned from posting for a week.
the terms are
*sleazy*
*puss*
*copulate*
*butt*
*be quiet*
*despise*
*critical person*
*poo*
*female dog*
*fool* and *pavement walker*
You can try to figure them out in our test kitchen if you like but not on topic's okay  (I won't be annoyed but it might give me an idea on how dirty your mind truly is! easter-wink tehe)
I never thought we would have to use such rules but apparently not everybody can be civil on board... thumbsdown
