Moderating Rules


Staff member
Moderators must follow these guidelines on Site and Forums

- The most important rule!; Use your better judgement!

- Don't defy another mod in public, instead send a PM or make a post in the "Site admin".

- Be tolerant! give the user(s) a chance to reform.

- Don't act prematurely, Let the users make their mistake and THEN correct them.

- Try correcting any "off topics" rather then closing the thread.

- Move topics rather than locking / deleting them.

- Be tolerant when moderating the Chit-chat section. (give them some slack)

- If you lock a topic, Give a brief explanation as to why you're locking it.

- Before banning a user, Send him/her a PM and If they reply, put them on a 2 week trial.

- Don't ban a user until he or she has been a member for at least 4 weeks.

- Always state a reason (in the user comment box) as to why the user is being banned.
