Finally, our forum rules

After a false start and a lot of discussion between the staff, we have finally boiled down all the BS and wordiness to a few simple and hopefully easy rules. We have decided to go with the Less Is Best approach. Thanks go to Jon and Steve for keeping me from declaring Marshall Law.

Presenting the PN forum rules:

1> No hacking.
2> No porn.
3> No personal abuse
4> No spamming.
Note: The above rules are open to interpretation by the staff, but all staff actions will be publicly announced.

#1 is self-explanatory

#2 means hot scantily clad chick pics are alright :D

I think #3 needs work as we have personally abused quite a few people here, unless you're saying we can't do it any longer. Maybe change it to something like.... No Prolonged Personal Abuse Unless It's Necessary To Get The Staff Off Their Lazy Asses To Make Coffee.

#4 could mean that I'm limited to how many bathing beauties pics I post, but I agree spamming is not a good thing when it happens in an legitimate pinball topic thread.

Let's just hope the staff doesn't really have to interpret any of these rules as that's when the problems always seem to erupt. I mean, if we don't eventually just accept most of our individual outlandish personalities, we are going to have to each have our own forums and that would be pretty boring.

Can we post WIP's or Release threads of unauthorized mods?

You always have the questions ready when needed. As for 2, you are correct, as for 3, your version is fairly accurate as far as your suggested change. What is currently done is OK, if we need to tell someone to tone it down, we will. And as for the cuties, they are mostly in the Junk Yard which is unmoderated, which should answer your other question.

As for as the staff making any rulings or decisions, that will be handled by all active Admin, with everyone having an equal vote. Which pretty well keeps us in balance. Of course we don't want to restrict the majority of what has been going on here, we simply felt something needed to be posted just in case. Our rules do apply to the Junk Yard, but only extreme situations will be acted upon there. All it takes is common sense and not posting with the sole purpose of causing trouble.

John

PS: I think the best thing about all of this is that if anything happens, it'll be dealt with openly for everyone to see, and hopefully to learn by. If you were to be warned about something, it would be a bit foolish for for someone else to go and do the exact same thing you were told shouldn't be done.

i thought that PD said "666" was a misinterpretation and the number was actually something else.

btw, are you all admins here or do you actually have moderators?

i nominate mister trident to be moderator, dammit!

U people take the cake... stop speaking in code. Here I'll give U what they really mean:

2> No porn. (porn = N E pic of a gal with a nice bod. Don't post pics of women with nice bodies, clothed or not - for shame)

3> No personal abuse (Abuse = any less than flattering statement whether true or not, directed toward a sacred 'staff' member. Of course, the 'staff' will continue 2 go around insulting US non stop.)

4> No spamming. (Spam (to your warped minde) = any text (original or non-commercial as it may be) that you deem 'irrelevant' or 'non-flattering' to your sacred 'elite complainer clique')

Rules = you rule over us mere 'non-staff' :D Oh yes master tell me what I must do! Oh no please don't delete me - nooooo! :o Oh the horror! My world shal collapse! I beg of U Mr. Cat bla bla bla

LOL!!!!

Good, you have at least read and understood the posted forum rules Neptune. So if there is ever just cause to bounce you, you won't be able to say you were not warned. And if we ever decide to bounce you, we just might make you an Admin long enough to be outvoted. :p That should appeal to your sense of irony, bucko.

John

And no, that wasn't a threat in any way, simply a wiity response to your post.

What the hell would we need a moderator for? This is an adult forum. It shouldn't need moderating. OTOH, if Neptune keeps begging for me to ban him, it's really no trouble for me to do so. I haven't seen anything about pinball from him yet, so in my book he's a troll and should stay in troll land (i.e. the Junkyard) and not pretend there's a "we" involved when it comes to the community, especially seeing he's some kind of Nazi wannabe or something gaging by some of his comments.

And yeah, it's 616, so there's nothing evil about my points.

Notice people how the 'mods' are IMMEDIATELY reverting 2 the exact behavior they claim 2 B against - personal attacks :D I have no need 2 attack U guys. I just return fire when attacked - it's fun if it's at least creative. What is annoying is that I am the only person here who seems 2 post interesting non-pinball stuff besides Mr. Hell. The rest of U guys R just boring - total snore - ranting bitch bitch bitch bla bla bla.

Hey oh holy 'mods' let's C U attack me some more & breaking your own rules - there's your 'irony' :)

By the way Mr. Cat - that would B rad - make me a holy mod - it is my calling. I shal mod righteously. 4 example, Y not go into other people's posts & re-write them? U know like I could go into your posts & talk like this...

"My name is Mr. Cat. I love my cat. I like to stroooke him :) Mmmmm yes kitty cat. & when kitty is bad, I stroke him faster. Yes that's right - show him who's master. Oh kitty kat - warming as the 12 drug coctail that electrifies my flesh. Kitty baby how I love thee - like the food in my guts and the fat in my veins, a blanket 2 roll around my throbbing man sword as I chant 'GLORY B 2 LORD PUSSY! BOW DOWN 2 PUSSY!! :D'

C, now that was creative! Learn a thing or 2 from me U wretched slags...

There are two major roadblocks to you being made a moderator here Neptune. 1, your keyboard seems to malfunction, and 2, you are the most hate-filled bigot I have ever encountered. And those appear to be your good points. :p

I am full of hate & love creativity & a gr8 many things. Let me post a question - Y would I wanna' B a mod? What's the point - bragging rights? The ability 2 delete other people's posts so I can on some misguided masturbatory power trip as 'ruler of the board'?

Nobody's forcing N E 1 2 read what I say. Trouble is instead of contributing 2 the topics, people just spout THEIR hate at ME. I never came here abusing N E 1. They all fired their first pot shots. 4 instance, check out this thread I created...

http://www.pinballnirvana.com/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewtopic&t=1001

I ignore the thing 4 about 2 weeks & what do I C? More insults. It's just what U people DO. That's all it is, so I am attempting 2 join in now & then :) That & excuse me, bit of copy pasting of 'hard luck' stories from U I C now & then (which I ignore).

Well bla bla - it's like TV man - if U don't like it, change the channel. I'm not spamming - I type / come up with everything myself (unlike some doods in your the litterbox)

Man take it easy on the cat, Neptune! Poor animal. There should be a way somehow to have fun without insulting others or their pets. Surely a way? Logic would dictate such. Happy Holidays!!:)

@Neptune: Stop crying and acting like a nancy-boy... you're annoying, stupid troll and you get treated as such... you're not a "person" or a "member"... so the forum rules won't apply to you...

Now arm yourself... with your..tambourine... and get jiggling with it... or you will get no peanuts... Bozo. :p

Hey Marv, I can take anything Neptune spews out, plus I get to move all his off-topic toxic waste to the Junk Yard, where it belongs. If he has nothing better to do with his time than spew his crap here, I feel sorry for him. Since I'm here because I want to be, it's no trouble at all to haul his messes to the Dump, so to speak. It's almost like solving a jig saw puzzle, weeding out his junk so all our pieces fit like they should. I enjoy hearing him cry whenever his posts get moved. Just shows how childish he really is.
