THE UNIVERSAL RULES


All rules stated below apply to ALL forums within this site.
Be sure to read ALL the rules to ensure your enjoyment on the forum and evasion of ban.
Thank you.


Account Details

Do not ask for someone else's account information. This applies to account information of any type. Account names that violate any other rule may be deleted or renamed at any time.

You may have ONLY one forum account per person. Do not share, trade, give or sell your forum account to anyone.

There is no reason for any user to have more than one forum account; any additional accounts created will be banned. The creation of multiple accounts may result in disciplinary action being taken against your original account.

Your forum account is your identity. If you share your account with someone and they break the rules, it will be treated the same as if you broke the rules yourself. If you give your account away, you have given away your identity; any future account you create will be treated as a multiple account for the same person.

Additionally, we advise you not to save your Forum password as a Cookie on any shared private computer account or on any Public Computer. We also advise not using a password other people could easily guess. Also note that passwords should never match a password you have used anywhere else. Accidental (or malicious) sharing of an account can cause your account to be considered a multiple account.


Do not share, trade, give or sell your game account to anyone.

Your game account is the property of ManifestGreifing. As such, you are not allowed to give your account away, or sell them. Posting to do so is against the forum rules and will result in a permanent ban.
Do not beg for or offer alterations to game accounts.

Do not ask anyone to buy you an account or upgrade to a premium Minecraft account, or accounts of any type. Accounts created for begging, trading or selling will be banned.

Posting Behavior

Do not post anything that may offend or inflame another user.

That includes:

- Any sexually explicit images or language
- Graphic violence
- Offensive language that targets another based on gender, race, ethnicity, color, creed, religion or lifestyle.



The MG forum staff reserves the right to remove any content that is deemed objectionable in a public community and levy any penalties that may be considered appropriate.

Profanity and other foul language is not permitted in any form, including acronyms or self-censoring. It is not permitted in a post, in a title or in a forum account name. Evading the forum filter is also prohibited. AE forum staff reserve the right to remove or rename any instances of foul languages and to apply any consequences deemed necessary.

Threatening, harassing, flaming or trolling anyone is not permitted. Any instance of misbehavior directed toward another user will result in any consequences deemed appropriate by forum staff.

Inappropriate content that is not permitted on the forums includes (but is not limited to):

- content that breaks any national laws
- copyright infringement (many MP3s, ROMs, etc.), warez, CD keys, cracks, passwords, serial numbers, etc.
- gambling and drugs
- hacking materials and information (Minecraft Coding is NOT considered hacking)
- terrorism (promotion/carrying it through)
- trojans, viruses, worms, and other such harmful things
- Trick links
- Pranking posts
- Referral/recruitment links
- Petitions both for offsite purposes and for AE-related goals
- Advertising of any kind

Spam

Do not Spam.

Spam is anything that is not directly related to the topic at hand, as well as any additions to a post that are deemed superfluous and unnecessary. This includes:

- Excessive smilies - no more than 3 per post
- Signature overuse - no more than 3 per page within a thread
- Idle, offtopic chatter
- Bumping a dead thread (over 10 days old)
- Using all caps, oversized font or other excessive formatting such as color, font face, strikeouts, etc.
- Posting a thread aimed at an individual; use the PM system if you want to have a discussion with one person.
- Double+ Posting: If you have the last post in a thread and want to add to it, please use the "Edit" button instead of making a further post

Forum Moderation


The responsibility of keeping the forums clean falls to the members of forum staff and staff assistants. They maintain order and use their judgment to determine the best course of action when rules are violated. Each member of forum staff has been extensively trained and as a result, it is within their discretion how the rules are enforced.

Do not attempt to take over for a member of the forum staff or staff assistants.

Mini-modding is posting to instruct another user of the rules in a post that serves no other purpose. It is acceptable to redirect a user to the appropriate forum or thread provided you do it in a polite manner, with more than just a link or a quote, and that you do your best to answer their question/address their issue first. Do not demand a user remove or edit their posts, do not instruct them to leave the forum in any manner, and do not harass, flame or mock someone who has posted in the wrong area. Mini-modding is all about tone of voice. If you cannot post assistance with courtesy, do not post at all.

Rule violations should be left to a moderator or an Admin. If you consider the matter urgent, PM an online moderator. Attempting to handle the issue yourself only makes the situation worse. Enforcing the rules and addressing inappropriate forum behavior is what the forum staff and staff assistants are there for. As such, they have the final say in all matters, even those not fully addressed in the written rules.

Forum Staff has the final say.

If a member of forum staff or staff assistants instructs you to halt or alter a behavior, you will do so. Any attempt to circumvent the rules or exploit gaps or "loopholes" will be met with more severe consequences. The determination as to whether the content of a post constitues things like flaming, trolling, spam, etc. lies with the mod in question, not the users. However, if you have issues with the decisions or actions of a member of forum staff, there is one acceptable manner of appeal and that is to follow the chain of command, as defined below.

For a Moderator, you send them a PM in an attempt to resolve the issue privately. You do not post about it in a thread. Any public posts about an moderator's decisions will be removed and warned as trolling. If you are unable to privately resolve your issue, you may contact the head moderator of the forum in question. See the Forum Staff or Staff Assistants list to determine whom to contact. If you are unable to resolve your issue with the head moderator of the forum, you may contact an Admin.
