Forum Rules

General Rules
*You are allowed one forum account only, no exceptions. If you lose access to your account, contact a staff member. Do not create further accounts. If you are caught having multiple forum accounts, all of your accounts will be disabled.

1. When dealing with 18+ material, please use discretion about what you post.
  • This is not /b/.
  • We have minors on our website so please be mindful of their presence.
  • Mark content that is considered 18+ with *NSFW* and hide them in spoiler tags:

    Code: Select all

    [spoiler] [/spoiler]
  • Overly grotesque and/or offensive content will be removed without warning.
  • Repeat offenders will be infracted and removed from our website should it be deemed necessary

2. Post in the correct forum
  • This is a rule broken quite often but needs to be addressed. Please use your eyes and brain before posting. There are threads dedicated to certain subjects. Posting threads in the wrong section WILL result in the deletion of said thread. If you're not sure where to post, feel free to ask someone where it should go.

3. Do not post personal information or other members information on the forums.
  • Information such as postal addresses, full names, IP addresses, email addresses, phone numbers and pictures should be kept to yourself as much as possible. If you need to share it, please ensure to do it in a private message or with consent before making the content public. As this is a public forum that is also indexed, anyone with basic Googling capabilities can extract information easily and use it to their advantage. Please for your own safety, do not share it if possible.

5. Follow all templates as dictated by subforum rules.
  • When doing a ban, unban, abuse, application, etc. report, please ensure to follow the template. We provide them to simplify and streamline your report. If you don't follow the template, two things will probably happen. You will be asked to follow the template or your thread will be deleted. Excessive offenders will be infracted.

6. Do not spam.
  • We ban website scammers and link spammers on sight.
  • Don't make posts seem that way either.

7. Do not necropost.
  • Necroposting is the act of bumping a thread up to the top for the sake of post count or ego inflation. You can differentiate a necropost by how useful it is. If let's say we have a thread dedicated to bring back servers when they go down and you post: "hey, the Minecraft Survival server just went down" and no one has posted in it for a month. That's FINE. If you choose to post something else like "hey, I like the Minecraft Survival server", that is considered necroposting. As always, feel free to PM a member of leadership should you have issues with a thread or forum.

8. This is not Facebook or Twitter
  • Please don't make any of our forums or threads your personal Twitter or Facebook.
  • They will be removed without warning.

9. Absolutely no advertisement of other clans, servers, groups or forums.
  • Don't post, share, or recruit for another server or clan on the server. People here already have a clan, The . : T3K : . Gaming Clan. Don't use our platform as a way to populate your server or clan.
  • Advertising will not be tolerated.

10. Absolutely no drama threads, status updates, signatures or shoutbox updates
