PostSubject: Rules - MUST READ   Fri Jul 04, 2008 10:44 pm

These rules are the most important thread in Pengorama. You must follow all of them or they will result in an infraction or a permanent ban at the most.

First up, common sense. We'll have it, so use it. Don't play dumb, it won't here.

- No spamming
Spam is a pointless message that means nothing and contributes nothing to that particular topic. This means messages like, for example: "nice" or "sdfaskjdgasdh." Spamming can get you multiple infractions depending on how serious the spam is.

- Emotes
Emotes are the graphics to your left side when you make a new post. Please do not use too many of the when making a post because it can make the thread go slow and they can be annoying to other users.

- Do not post multiple times in a row.
Posting multiple times in a row is when you constantly post new messages when you were already the last person to post in that thread. There are exceptions for some posting games and you can double post after 24 hours to bump a thread that has become inactive.

- No Offensive Language
This forum has censored most swear words but that doesn't mean you can use offensive language. This means no racist comments, sexual harassment, sexual references, and anything that could be offensive to certain people.

- Chat Speak
This is NOT a chat room, we expect you to at the very least, attempt to talk with proper grammar. If you're spelling skills aren't up to scratch we suggest a spell check add on for your browser.

- Bumping
Bumping is when you post in a thread that hasn't been posted in for over a month. Stickies and announcements may be bumped but if you are caught bumping an old normal thread, an infractions will be given.

- Respect other users

We know you will never get along with everyone. That's life. However, whilst at the forum we do ask you to display respect toward all other users. This means no flaming with others and not arguing with a Staff decision, if you have any problems or concerns about the forum please either PM or email an Administrator.

- Staff
All staff on this forum have earned their spot fair and square.
Do not ask to be staff at all. It will only lower your chances dramatically and an infraction will be given.

- Multiple Accounts

One account per user. If you're account has been banned, tough luck.
The only exception being that sometimes we may allow staff to have back ups.
If you have a sibling also on the forum you may have an account each.
But remember, only 1 per user.

- Advertising
We will not under any circumstances allow advertising anywhere except avatars, signatures and the field designated for this in your profile. This rules also applies in the PM [Private Messaging System], and also other forums. Please check other forum rules before advertising we don't want to end in a war. Any user caught advertising (especially via another forum,) will suffer punishment of doing so.

- Private Messaging System

Currently our Private Messaging System (also known as PM) is enabled.
Just because we are not able to view all messages sent, if a message is deemed inappropriate by a user we ask you report it to an Administrator immediately.

- Post in the correct area

This means not posting a thread about Club Penguin in the ''Off Topic" Forum.
While all it may take is a few clicks for a staff member to move it to the correct area, use your common sense, and post in the right place.

- No inappropriate links and/or images
Children aged from anywhere around 9 + may visit the forum. And while doing so do not wish to be greeted by any inappropriately images and/or links.

- Staying Safe on the internet

DO NOT under any circumstance give away personal information such as your last name, home address, phone number etc. Posting other things such as your first name, country, photos etc. are your own choice, do not let any one else pressure you into doing so, likewise don't pressure anyone else to do the same.
This if for your own protection, although we consider ourselves to be safe forum, you never know who may be reading.

Ban information
You must follow the rules or you will be banned. In the infraction system, if you get 5 infractions you will be banned for a week and if you get 8 you will be permanently banned. Your infraction will be removed in 2 weeks if all goes well. If you get an infraction for something serious it will be permanent.

"Do the crime, do the time" Yes I know the rules may seems a bit much, I just wanted them to be clear enough for all to understand. We are not a strict forum, the staff here are pretty easy going but we will act if you're not doing the right thing.
So play it safe by the rules.

If you have any concerns or need any help please contact a staff member via PM or email-

(Other staff feel free to add your e-mail here)
