Board Posting Policy
« on: March 06, 2003, 05:19:18 am »
I've gotten off my butt and created a board posting policy.  Most of it should be common sense and this is what the moderators should be enforcing as well as living by themselves.

http://dynamic.gamespy.com/~starcontrol/board/policy.shtml

Any problems or questions, post them here.  This isn't meant to stifle discussion or fun, but merely to lay it out for those rare people that need it spelled out word by word :-*

Oh yeah, this link is also at the top of almost every page with the current date and your name.  So no "oh I didn't see that link" *nonsense* :)

I'll just keep on being horrible to anyone  ;)

  Chad, is there any way you could change the censorship thing so instead of changing shit to nuts, it changes shit to sh*t, or s***, or something?  Somehow I find it extremely irritating when my words are changed to a completely different word, whereas when my words are merely partially obscured I am merely bemused.  Also, the censor isn't case sensitive, so it you say shit at the beginning of the sentance, it changes it to nuts with a lower-case "n", causing me to look more stupid than usual.  Thanks.

Some of these words it censors are not so bad, but most of them are censored because they incite hatred and flaming.  Those, will remain censored.

I've changed the couple you complained about, as with a previous word, they aren't that bad (are not racial or flame words)

And look, I'll change words on a case-by-case, preferrable if you Private Message me with your case.  BUT, I am not going to sit here and use my valuable time and change all the words OR turn off the censor feature.

I mean, if you can't talk here in a civil and somewhat "clean" tone, what's the point?  But I agree, shit and damn are just about every day words for most people.  At least in their "heads/minds".  :-/

My final word on this is that there is a lot better things for me and for you to be doing than cursing up a storm, using flame words and for worrying about 10 stupid words getting censored on a VERY small and niche discussion board.  :P

Though the question had nothing to do with the policy...the answer to your question of finding SC3 is a site called www.the-underdogs.org   keep in mind, it is NOT a warez site. It is an abandonware site, meaning it is legal to download this stuff.
Hurrah!

Technically, you are wrong...

Doesn't mean that a lot of people don't do it and people get away with it, but technically it is illegal and you are breaking laws.

oops! O_o;   Btw, a bit more about me...I have been a starcon fan since I was like 7...when I had starcon 1 for Geni. I heard about starcon 2 when it came out for 3do, and was hooked....just 2, 3 years ago, I found it for PC, and struggled to get it to work...and now here I am. I woked at the Ecco the dolphin community for a long while, as site administrator assistant, and forum Moderator...so I am familiar with forum policies, etc. I was also the chat Moderator for our IRC server...I did this all for a year, but left, because of the instability of my admin. My original intentions were directed here...I reallly wanted to work at a starcon fansite. But when I was offered a job over there, well, my time was occupied. I am happy to finally be a user here...if you need help of any kind concerning site moderation, etc, I am free a helluva lot, and have a lot of experience dealing with that kinda thing.

Just letting you know, incase you need anyone in the future  ;)

Other than that, I am happy to be here! Starcon rules, etc.

The old site I worked at was www.arkonviox.com  so you can see what was going on.
Hurrah!

Ah, new blood for my Disrevlante Off Topic Board.

Yes, that's right - I have claimed it as my own. My forces have already seized all banks, post offices, train stations, government buildings and telephone exchanges.

  Sorry to resurrect this extremely old thread, but I thought that we all should take a look at it.  I've seen a lot of problems with violations of some of these rules:

4. No posting other user's "real world" information without their permission. This includes registered as well as unregistered users.

9. Speak to each other in a mature, civil and respectful manner.

11. Keep interjections, humorous or otherwise, to a minimum. Yes, we all do it, but it should not become the new topic of conversation. If it warrants it, start a new thread.

12. No Personal attacks will be tolerated of any kind.

14. Posts that flame individuals, either by name or inference, will not be tolerated.

18. If you are here just to be confrontational you will be forced to leave, losing your posting privileges.

24. By registering and logging, you agree to and have accepted the above rules. Please remember, it is a privilege granted to you to post on this board; do not abuse it.

  Play nice, kids.
