Moderator Guidelines/Rules

Post  LCPD on Mon Sep 22, 2008 6:55 pm

If you are a moderator reading this, then you should continue reading this announcement, since it is HIGHLY IMPORTANT that you do read through it all, thoroughly.

~~~~~

Moderator Guidelines:

1. Before using your magic to edit/delete any topics/posts, etc., quote the topic/post you are about to do so to, and please post why you are magically changing that certain post.

2. If in doubt, don't change/ban something/someone you see.

3. These guidelines and rules that follow only apply for the forums, mostly!

4. Don't act out of your persona. You are of a Knightly position in these forums. People will look up to you, and admire the fact that you are a moderator. The least you could do is center yourself with a good personality/behavior, while you are on LCPD's website, in general.

5. Using your position for rubbing it in other peoples' faces, etc., is not allowed, so don't think about doing so, since it is rather rude to others, and is also an abuse of your powers.

6. Don't use your position so you can curse/swear, display any form of sexual/mature content, etc., it's definately NOT permitted.

7. Do not banspam (meaning don't ban yourself, or other moderators, repititiously). It gets annoying, and it IS spam, so you can be reported to LCPD, and have your position devoked, for doing so, constantly.

Banspam = 2 or more bans of another moderator, or yourself.


8. Leave a reason for editing/deleting a post, or banning someone. It is extremely out of your jurisdiction to not leave a reason for doing so, since it gives the person that really did do the wrong a reason to keep continuing.

9. If anyone ever sends you any hate mail through the forums, create a thread (and lock it, once your done posting it), and give that member a warning/ban, depending on the quantity of rules broken.

10. Don't EVER try messing with the Prune threads option when you enter the Mod Control Panel, at the bottom of the screen.

Reporting a Problem with a Moderator: (mainly for members)

If you find that a moderator has done their job incorrectly, you may go ahead and report the problem to LCPD, or other mods, only after taking a screen shot, and sending it to him through a PM.

To take a screen shot, press Alt + Print Screen. Then, open up Microsoft Paint, and press Ctrl + V. BAM! You're screenie is there now!

Now, save it as a .JPEG format (in order to keep the KB of the attachment down), and go ahead and send it as an attachment to LCPD, or a mod, as a Private Message.

Also, do not report a moderator unless you do have a logical reason for reporting him/her, and only report them if you have some evidence to back up your case.

Thanks for reading through all of this! I really do appreciate it
