*PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING* - Rules of Conduct

Post  Admin on Thu May 10, 2012 1:23 am

Message Board Conduct
In general, you may post any material written in a courteous and mature manner, providing that it is on-topic for the forum to which you are posting. We will not interfere with the communication of thoughts and ideas as long as the presentation is constructive and appropriate for all those capable of reading the forum.

You may NOT post or place in a signature any material that:

Attacks or insults others on the board. Feel free to debate the idea, but do not turn your disagreement into an attack upon the poster or any person or group.
Engages in name-calling, harassment, or threats.
Contains obscenity, vulgarity, profanity or is explicit in any matter. Though we do have a filter in place to catch unintentional obscenity from time to time, this is not a license to abuse it.

Bypassing the obscenity filter by using letter, number, or character combinations that allow the obscene or inappropriate word to appear is unacceptable as well.

Disparages any religion, race, nation, gender, or sexual orientation.
Is considered inappropriate for children 13 or over as governed by general standards of decency in the United States of America.
Infringes upon anyone's privacy rights.
Is off-topic for the forum. These Forums are provided to enable members to help each other in sharing their passion for the game.

Furthermore, you may NOT:

Make multiple posts on the same subject for the purpose of getting attention paid to your issue.
Post comments in threads for the purpose of drawing attention to another thread on a different subject.
Cross-post the same topic to multiple forums or the same message to multiple threads.
Make replies to posts that do not pertain to or are irrelevant to the original topic, such as: In before the Lock, "first," or posting messages to reserve a reply spot with the intention of posting to it later.
Troll the forums. "Trolling" is defined as: Posting with the intent of stirring up trouble or to incite disruption. An example of trolling would be posting to a thread without the intent to provide constructive suggestions or comments and instead making disruptive comments.
Post topics addressed directly to another individual. These forums are used for the discussion of idea or information, please use your own email address to communicate with another individual.
Post private and personal communication with and/or information about other individual, including private and personal messages from chat programs, PMs or email.
Use the official forums to debate private issues. The official forums are for all Pack 209 Leaders, Parents, Scouts and surrounding commuity.
Use the official forums as a staging ground for creating general unrest within the community, such as sit-ins, polls, petitions, etc.
Advertise websites with content that violates these rules of conduct.
Advertise products or websites that are not related to Pack 209 UNLESS it is in the Community forums
Make posts seeking or giving feedback about forum moderation. All requests and feedback about forum moderation issues should be sent Admin.

All of these rules apply to the forums.

Action that we might take in regard to a post in violation of these rules will vary depending upon the transgression. It may include any number of the following (in order of severity):

Editing of the post or signature.
Removal of the ability to have a signature or Link and image posting privileges.
Deletion of the post/thread.
Closing of the thread.
A Warning that is attached to the offending account. Warnings are given for less severe message board infractions. Anyone that receives three warnings for message board conduct will have their account banned. The exception to this is the Scout forums in which one infraction can have immediate consequences on the forums and with the pack.
Suspension (results in user being unable to access any of the forums for the duration of the suspension at the discretion of the administrator. Any subsequent warnings after a suspension will result in banishment).
Banishment (results in the user's forum posting privileges being revoked. At the discretion of the admin.
Legal Action (i.e. contacting law enforcement personnel in regard to a threat)

Those who violate the rules of the boards may or may not receive any warning before action is taken. In the event that a warning is given, the warning will be recorded upon the account and may result in further action should the individual show a pattern of engaging in prohibited conduct. Philosophically and administratively, there is no difference between conduct at a pack meeting and conduct on the Forums.

Things the Admin WILL MOST LIKELY NOT Respond To

Private Messages asking for a response to a particular thread. We read as many threads on these boards as possible and respond to those to which we feel we can best contribute. Asking us to look at or respond to a certain thread will not cause us to answer a question that we otherwise wouldn't.
Rumors regarding internal Pack matters. The lack of a response from us is not an acknowledgment of truth, just a sign that we won't dignify such threads with a response.

In addition, answering Private Messages is at the discretion of the Administrator.
