1. Low Tolerance
To ensure that this is a friendly and efficient community we have instilled a Low Tolerance policy. This means any user who does not follow the guidelines may be warned, post promptly removed or the user may be suspended or banned. We will do our best to make certain the user is informed why he or she has been suspended/banned and potential options for reinstatement. Our goal is to make this community young-person friendly while allowing gamers and business advocates alike to enjoy and participate.

2. Advertising
We do not allow any advertising by any user unless he or she has explicit written consent. Our understanding of advertising is posting links or information via public threads, profile walls or private messages alluding to services provided privately or commercially.

Advertising in Threads or Posts will be removed without warning.

What is considered "unacceptable" advertising?
- Creating threads or posts that serve only to promote a website or business (whatever that maybe);
- The posting of URLS, prices, names, phone numbers, etc. for a business or other community. The emailing or private messaging of unsolicited advertising material to Enjin users.

3. Cursing or Swearing
In our attempts to make this community friendly we must consider the use of language. We definitely understand that "light" cursing will occur and is acceptable. However excessive or unnecessary use, or "bad" language directed towards another user on the forums will not be tolerated. The posts will be removed and the user may be warned, suspended or banned.

If a user is found to have participated in such actions, he/she may:

* Be given a temporary ban from the forums, depending upon the severity.

4. No Personal attacks, Defamation, libel, or Slander
Defamation is defined as any written words that falsely or negatively reflects a person's, organization or companies reputation or character. This includes issues of slander and accusations as well. All of which are not acceptable here. If you disagree with someone or something, please do not resort to personal attacks, but rather argue the merits of their points or work it out via private messaging.

Respect your fellow members. Please refrain from making inflammatory and incendiary comments. Flaming, taunting, and overall disrespect is frowned upon. Simply putting down an opinion given by others is wrong. If you don’t agree with what they’re saying, state your reason why (but do so respectfully). Do not make uninvited remarks regarding typos or duplicate posts. Harassment is not necessarily limited to the language used but is also based upon intent.

If a user is found to have participated in such actions, he/she will:

* Be given a temporary ban from the forums, depending upon the severity.

5. No Illegal Content
Illegal content can be described as “warez”, nudity, copyright infringement, and plagiarism. We attempt to respect all private and public works and therefore do not allow any distribution of illegal content both directly or indirectly (posting links that lead to outside sources where any illegal content can be accessed). Please note, unauthorized leaks of any titles also fall under this category and will be treated as such. This also includes information illegally obtained. Additional links to cheats, hacks, or malicious software like viruses fall under this category.

If a user is found to have participated in such actions, he/she will:

* Be given a temporary ban from the forums, depending upon the severity.

6. No Religious, Political, or National Discussions
We are a melting pot community. We must respect religious choices of everyone regardless of what any one user believes is ultimately correct. Therefore we do not allow any religious or political discussions or endorsements of religious or political topics. Any discussion which promotesnational hatred, includes national slurs, or alludes to any symbols of national hatred is prohibited.

If a user is found to have participated in such actions, he/she may:

* See their posts removed
* Be given a temporarily ban from the forums, depending upon the severity.

7. No Spamming
We define spamming as massive or unnecessary amount of posts of the same or relating to the same topic or link. Spam, off topic, unnecessary or grammatically illegible, indecipherable posts will be removed without warning. This also includes excessive amounts of similar or same phrases. Posts designed to cause unrest or disturbances, including but not limited to, picking fights and insulting other posters fall here.

If a user is found to have participated in such actions, he/she will:

* Be given a temporary ban from the forums, depending upon the severity.

8. No Discussion of Disciplinary Action
If someone you know has been suspended or banned and has asked you to post on their behalf ... DON'T! They have the right to contact our support department to request more information for their suspension/ban. However if you post on their behalf you may face suspension or a ban as well. The administrative team has the final say on anything. If you have an issue and would like to make an appeal, you may make a complaint to them directly and not publicly in the Enjin community. Creating threads or posts that question or reference decisions made by the administration team (like post removals or thread closures) is not allowed. Creating posts or threads that include chat logs and other correspondence between players and Enjin staff is prohibited. We’re not perfect and if you feel that we have made an error, privately contact a member of the administration team and we will review the situation. Users who wish to express their comments or concerns can do so here: http://www.enjin.com/support/form.

If a user is found to have participated in such actions, he/she will:

* Be given a temporary ban from the forums, depending upon the severity.

9. No Flaming
Flaming is an excessive version of defamation or slander. It defines that a user is hostile and insulting another user. We do not condone any type of flaming. Please be aware that if you participate you are considered facilitating the flame war and may risk
being suspended or banned.

If a user is found to have participated in such actions, he/she will:

* Be given a temporary ban from the forums, depending upon the severity.

10. Before You Post
To keep the community as efficient and effective as possible please search your request before posting a new thread. Attempt to respond to other topics rather than post a new thread if the topics are similar. Users with duplicate requests of the same nature will be directed to similar threads created previously.

11. When You Post

- Do not simulate "YELLING" by using all caps or all Large font.
- Find the correct category for your post.
- Make sure that your post is readable.
- Use subject headers which relate to your thread.
- Be as descriptive as possible with your problem or inquiry you are posting in reference to.
- When posting, please consider what you are adding to the conversation and try to avoid 1 or 2 word responses.
- Make sure your post is respectful to all members of this community.
- Stay on topic and make sure your post is relevant
- Avoid hi-jacking threads for your own benefit
- Do not revive threads that have been in-active for over 3 months. This is also known as "Necro'ing posts".

Do not insist or demand or harass other users for personal information. If a user is found to have participated in such actions, he/she will: * Be given permanently banned from the forums.

If a user is found to have violated these guidelines, he/she will:

* Be given a temporary ban from the forums, depending upon the severity.

This is an English-speaking community. However if you prefer to use Languages Other Than English (LOTE) please use the Regional Forums only.

If a user is found to have participated in such actions, he/she will:

* Be given a temporary ban from the forums, depending upon the severity.

15. Cross-posting
Cross-posting is not allowed and will result in the removal of one or more posts. Cross-posting is defined as posting the same information in two or more locations. This also includes creating an additional thread about an existing topic for additional discussion in more than one area. When posting your topic, please try to post it in the most appropriate place within the structure of our community. Identical topics in the same or different forums may be removed without warning.

If a user is found to have participated in such actions, he/she will:

* Be given a temporary ban from the forums, depending upon the severity.

16. Posting About Websites
If you want to post about your website or forum, it may be best to consult the forum admins about it as it may be violating one of our rules. Please limit advertising posts to the appropriate sub forums.

17. Images, Signatures and Avatars
We hope all users create their own fun and unique signatures and avatar to represent themselves. However, keep images to a maximum of 500px wide. Your overall signature should not exceed 8 lines (vertically) Your avatar must be within good taste. Any illegal content within the signature or avatar will result in a either a warning, suspension or banning of your account. Users should not impersonate or pretend to be part of the Enjin staff or use a moderator or admins signature, display name or avatar.

Signatures may never link to external commercial websites. If it's not on Enjin, it cannot be a commercial site. Personal websites such as blogs, clans, and guilds are fine.

18. Disclaimer
Enjin Forum is not liable for any content made available directly or indirectly through the Enjin community forum boards. If any person or persons feels the content is inappropriate we ask that they contact us immediately to assist in resolving any issues. If the content is deemed inappropriate it will be removed immediately. Enjin will respect all user information but will provide any necessary information about a user and the users history at a legal authorities request. In any other case Enjin will collect information for internal and external marketing use.

19. Report, don’t respond
In this community, you may occasionally encounter forum posts that violate our guidelines. Please use the Report Post function located at the bottom of every individual post. Explain the reasoning behind your report and then simply allow us to do our jobs.

Causing a posting violation in response to another posting violation doesn’t help your cause and the administration team may need to enforce disciplinary action on you as well.

* Abusing the report post feature may result in being temporarily banned from the forums, depending upon the severity.

20. User names
Please use common sense when deciding on a user name. Avoid names that are trademarked by any business (including your own). Avoid any names with curses, swears, or generally offensive language (and this includes phrases in languages other than English). Do not use names that inspire hate or prejudices towards specific groups (such as racial, ethnic, national, religious, political, and handicapped descriptions). Do not use names that have religious or political references. Do not use names that impersonate staff members. Do not use names impersonating public figures or celebrities.

If a user is found to have participated in such actions, he/she will:

* Be given a temporary ban from the forums, depending upon the severity.

21. Suspension circumvention
Users that have been banned or suspended who have been found posting on another account or having an individual posting on their behalf will face disciplinary action.

If a user is found to have participated in such actions, he/she will:

* Be permanently banned from the forums.

22. Mini-Modding/Backseat Moderating
Users are encouraged to assist others on the Enjin community, but you need to do so in a manner that is appropriate with your position as a regular user. Impersonating staff, directly enforcing forum rules, and tackling sensitive issues that should be tackled solely by official staff are not allowed.

23. Thread Hijacking
Each user must create their own thread for their own issue. Only one issue should be in each thread, unless they pertain to the same problem. For multiple (unrelated) issues, create a separate thread for each issue. Do not respond to someone else's thread with your own issue (thread hijacking). Only post a reply if you are trying to assist the OP with their issue. Do not post just for the sake of posting, or when a thread has already been resolved.

Always use the report function for a thread/post that may be in violation of any forum rule instead of pointing it out to the user. A staff member will always get things sorted as soon as they can.

******

Freedom-of-speech rights do not extend to privately owned websites, such as the Enjin community. The guidelines above outline the behaviour and activities allowed along with the possible disciplinary action taken.

Should a user violate our guidelines and show disregard for them, our administration team, and our community, they run the risk of losing their account. We reserve the right to deactivate any account and to edit or remove any content without warning. These guidelines are subject to change at anytime without notice.

If you have a question about our guidelines, if you have a suggestion, wish to offer feedback, or are experiencing problems with the site, you may contact any member of the Enjin administration team and we will help you in any way we can.

Our policies are not language-restrictive. Any language use under the above policies will always be subject to any repercussions listed above whether the language used is inappropriate in English or any other language.

Repeat violations of any area of the Enjin Terms of Use and Code of Conduct can lead to disciplinary actions including permanent bans or account closures.

Thank you for visiting the Enjin Community!

Please be sure you understand this. If you are unsure of what this entails, please post in the Support Questions board (preferred), or PM me (I cannot speak for the Admins or other Moderators for the sending of PM's to them).

Thank you.
