The Official NSider Rule-set
« on: September 23, 2007, 07:48:28 PM »
NSider Site Rules
 
1. No Flaming.
Flaming for the purposes of this rule shall mean insulting another user that is both:
a) unwarranted
and
b) unprovoked
Calling someone an idiot because they're using bad grammar or being a fanboy is perfectly fine, but don't continually whine about it. It's also perfectly fine to call someone out for trolling, but also be aware that most trolls are after attention, and you are simply giving the user what he or she desires.

 
2. No Spam.
Do not make posts that add nothing to a conversation. This means posts containing only an image, posts containing only quoted text, posts containing only phrases like "Yes", "Agreed", "Good Point", "LOL". While these things are OK within a post, a post containing only them is a bad thing.
 
3. Don't Discriminate / Be Tolerant Of Other's Opinions
Don't put down other peoples beliefs, lifestyles, opinions, views, religion, ethnicity, gender, colour or the likes. If you disagree with someone's opinions, state why in an objective manner ("I disagree because..." not "OMFG you idiot!!!") However, the reverse also holds true. Don't become indignant and whiny just because someone uses a cuss or slur; they might very well be sarcastic. If they're not, they look like an idiot, anyway.
 
4. Don't Breach Person-To-Person Privacy
Don't disclose information people have told you (including that obtained via ACP and Staff Forums) with other people except those who have the authority to see it (i.e. Admins)
 
5. Respect Individual Forum Rules
Some forums have their own set of specified rules, which apply in addition to these rules.
 
6. Listen To Staff
If a staff member asks you to do something, you must fulfill their request, unless you consider it unreasonable. Should you consider a request unreasonable you must inform the requesting staff member of your opinion, and consult a higher staff member who will sort it out.
 
7. Report Problems In Private
If something happens on this forum that upsets you, please speak to a member of the moderation staff instead of letting it out in public.
 
8. Handle Personal Complaints Personally
If you have a problem with a regular member (they keep sending you advertising PMs, trolling, ect.), please speak to an administrator about it. If you have a problem with a staff member, please consult an administrator - preferably one you trust.Note: in Private Messages, profiles, and posts, there is a "report to moderator/administrator" button - this is a good way to deal with most issues

9. No Advertising
Advertisements should only be inside your signature.

10. No Inappropriate Content
This includes pornography and links to pornography, and links to illegal material (ROMs, Warez, Emulators, Illegal Downloads).

11 Swear In Moderation Only
No overuse of swearwords in your posts, signature or shouts. The occasional word is OK, but many in a short blurb of text is unacceptable.

12 No Multiple Accounts
This just puts overload on the servers. No alternate accounts are allowed. The only exception is staff test accounts or if a staff member asks you to create an alternate account.

13 No Internet Memes
They aren't funny. They aren't productive. They aren't anything but annoying. No referencing memes either (changing one or a few words, but still resembling the original meme)
ex: THIS. IS. SPARTA., IT'S OVER 9000!!!!!, O RLY?, etc. The occasional small reference in a post in okay, sure, but no posts that are focused on a meme/fad.

14. Signature Limitations
NSF allows you a signature up to 600 by 200 pixels in terms of dimensions, and 1 MB in terms of filesize. This is plenty of room for a respectable signature and is already extremely generous given bandwidth and other considerations. If a mod asks you to remove a part of your signature to get within the guidelines, please do so.


15. Grammar
Posting a line in 1337 or AIM speak occasionally to show sarcasm is one thing. Constantly talking in it is something else. God/Evolution gave you a brain. Use it. You're also required to be able to form coherent sentences, typing something like "lol kthx" is an insult to everything your first grade teachers taught you. Also, lose the "lol" "rofl" and "lmao", at the very least, don't use them in reference to your own posts. It makes you look like an idiot, and if you look like one, you probably are.

Everybody makes mistakes. Sometimes a certain staff member may delete a post that you consider to be within the rules. If you disagree with the actions of a moderator, please PM the moderator civilly asking him/her to reverse the action, explaining why he/she should.
 
Should the moderator deny your request, speak to a superior, or go straight to an administrator with your problem.
 
 
Please note that issues with users are on a case to case basis, and judged by the acting staff member(s).
 
- Permanent Bans can be reversed by Moderators and Administrators, and will only be done so under extraordinary circumstances.
 
- Suspensions can be shortened by Moderators and Administrators, and again, will only be done so in extraordinary circumstances.
 
 
In Closing
If you have any problems on the forums, or have an issue understanding anything in the rules, feel free to contact any Moderator or Administrator.


Edit - Fixed a few things. Feel free to change as you wish.

I'm guessing #13, since it's in red?  I haven't read this since I signed up (when I just skimmed it) so I don't remember how it was :P

But the meme rule is a bit harsh...shouldn't it be OLD memes?  Memes that are actually new and funny should be used until they start to lose their initial fun at least.

The thing is, by the time a meme reaches here, it's dead already, and if it's not we kill it off pretty fast.
It gets frustrating when every other post is the new fad that's going around, and the mods have to go and clean everything up.
