The goal of this forum is to discuss Vulcan Baggers in a safe, supportive environment. No one should ever need to defend their choice of a Vulcan on this forum. But no one needs to get offended where no offence is intended either.

These rules exist to ensure that forum members understand what is and isn’t acceptable, not to inhibit discussion. Each member is responsible for his or her own posts. If you see rules getting broken, you may ignore the problem or report it to the moderators, but may not use it as an excuse to break rules yourself.

What Are The Rules?

Each member must:

  • Write all forum posts in English.

  • Treat all members with respect and refrain from using direct insults or personal attacks and from flaming.

  • Refrain from spamming, including posting advertisements or referral links to other services that are irrelevant.

  • Refrain from trolling or posting controversial messages meant to bait other users to reply.

  • Refrain from posting in all capitals.

  • Refrain from posting any sexual or inappropriate material. If it’s not work- or family-appropriate, don’t post it.

  • Refrain from excessive swearing, offensive language or remarks of racial nature.

  • Keep your signature reasonable. If you must include a long list, make it horizontal.

 

While these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Moderators, therefore, reserve the right to discipline for other inappropriate actions. Do not complain if a moderator removes a message you posted. We trust our moderators, and if they've removed a message, they had a good reason. Please do not start a new thread asking why your last thread was moved, deleted, or closed. If you sincerely want to know why, contact a moderator. Threats to moderators are not acceptable.  

 

What Happens If I Break a Rule?


The usual practice is as follows, but may be altered by a moderator, depending on the severity of the infraction:

 

  1. After the first offense, the problem language or post will be corrected (either edited or deleted) and a PM may or may not be sent to you.

  2. After the second offense, a moderator will give you a written warning and place an infraction on your account.

  3. After the third offense, you will receive a temporary ban.. The length will depend on the severity of the incident, but will usually be 1-3 months.

  4. After the fourth offense, the moderators will assume that you are not willing to follow the rules and you will be banned for 1 year.

 

What Should I Do If I See a Rule Being Broken?

Please report the thread/post to the moderators using the “Report Post” icon () located under the avatar of each post. This report will be sent to all moderators who will respond to the incident as quickly as possible.
