Rules of the Forum

Exclamation Take some time to read this information before starting. Exclamation 

General Forum Rules
1. Do not spam or self-promote in the forums
These forums define spam as unsolicited advertisement for goods, services and/or other web sites or posts with little, no or completely unrelated content. Do not spam the forums with links to your site or product, or try to self-promote your website, business or forums etc. Doing so is a waste of time. Your account will be banned permanently and your posts will be deleted. Spamming also includes sending private messages to a large number of different users.


2. Do not post "Free " threads
Posting pyramid scams (such as free iPods, LCDs etc.) is forbidden. All such posts/signatures will be edited or deleted. Any new users posting scams will be banned permanently; contributing users will either be warned or temporarily banned.

3. Do not cross post questions
Please refrain from posting the same question in several forums. There is normally one forum which is most suitable in which to post your question. If you're not sure where to post, ask a moderator first. You will be warned if it continues, but after a while, you will be temporarily banned.

4. Do not post copyright-infringing material
Do not upload, attach, or otherwise post any copyrighted material which you are not free to redistribute (subject to the licensing terms of the specific item). If you have a question about having permission to post or attach a specific item, please ask a moderator. Violators will be banned.

5. We do not condone nor accept posts pertaining to illegal activities such as hacking, cracking, warez, or spam. Any posts or threads found in violation of this rule will be edited or deleted, and the poster warned or possibly banned; at the moderation team's discretion.

6. Do not post obscene posts, links or images
Do not post anything which is offensive, hateful, racist, sexist, discriminatory, obscene, vulgar or in violation of local or international laws. We WILL NOT accept any hateful speech relating to the Ku Klux Klan or any such group. Violators will be temporarily banned once, then permanently banned.

7. Do not PM users asking for information
Do not send private messages to any users asking for historical information. If you need help, make a new thread in the appropriate forum. Violators who are reported will be warned.

8. Remain respectful of other users, moderators and administrators at all times
All posts should be professional and courteous. You have every right to disagree with your fellow community members and explain your perspective. However, you are not free to attack, degrade, insult, or otherwise belittle them or the quality of this community. It does not matter what title or power you hold in these forums, you are expected to obey this rule. Doing otherwise will get your account banned temporarily, or permanently if the situation becomes severe enough (this will be left to the discretion of the moderation team). For example, phrases such as "shut up, idiot," are indicative of problematic posts and should be reported. Suggested alternatives include "I disagree with what you said for the following reasons..." Please remember to stay mature and thoughtful at all times.

9. We DO NOT tolerate Yankee haters!
This forum is here to support the Southern States. Any users that bash the South will be banned. (after being chased out  Wink )

10. Do not ask to become a moderator unless the position is posted.
Asking for a promotion is unnecessary and sophomoric. Those that do will be warned. If it become excessive, you may be temporarily banned.

**NOTE: The Confederate Nation forum does NOT tolerate hate speech or hate groups in any way. You will first be warned, then if it repeats, you will be banned.

What happens if I break a rule?
If you break a rule, then you will either be warned or banned. A ban of your user account may either be temporary or permanent. If you are given an official warning, a further warning within the next 30 days will result in a temporary ban which will last 7 days. If it happens again, you will be banned for 30 days. If you are not given an official warning, a user note may be added to your account and the incident may be logged for future reference. While a ban will normally involve only a ban of your user account, in extreme circumstances, it is possible to block your IP address from the forums. The administrators and moderators also have the right to edit, delete, move or close and thread or post as they see necessary, without prior warning.

What happens if I see a thread/post which has broken a rule?
Please report the thread/post to the moderators. This report will be sent to all moderators of that particular forum, who will respond to the incident as quickly as possible. Please do not be 'Back seat moderators'.
