PostSubject: + Sakura's Forum Rules +    Sun Aug 15, 2010 5:11 am

1. Don't post any pornographic material.

As you know, a lot of our members are under the age of 18 (including myself). So therefore, don't post pictures of nude people, okay.

Only exception is Naruto Sexy Jutsu, because it is partly censored. This also means NO Hentai images. I'm adding this part in response to this thread. (Yes, J-Max influenced this part of rule 1)

This rule also includes having inappropriate pictures for an avatar. If it is seen, the administration will remove it on sight AND you will receive a 30% permanent warning.

2. No flaming and/or trolling on this site.

Just be respectful of others and their feelings. If a flame war breaks out, there will be a severe penalty for it. Multiple violations of this rule may result in a long-term warn/ban depending on the moderator that hands it down.

3. Do not ask to be a moderator/super moderator.

I will add you when I see that you deserve to be one or if one of the current mods recommend you.

4. No multiple accounting

You only need one (1) account to enjoy our forums, so don't make another one except if (1) your account has been hacked or being abused by another user or (2) you forgot your password and can't retrieve the new one.

If you are going to let your friends/relatives/neighbors, etc. register an account on the same computer you use, let me know so I won't think you are making multiple accounts.

5. No inappropriate usernames

Simple. Don't make a username with a cuss word in it. If that does happen however, I will edit it without warning.

6. No heavy swearing

To an extent, mild swearing is permitted however you are required to censor the words. This also means no using any cuss word with the big f-word in it. Basically don't use any cuss words beyond the d-word. If you forget, the automatic filter will catch it. And don't try to cheat the filters.

7. No arguing with the staff

Remember that they have the power to ban/warn you if necessary. If you disagree with their decisions, bring it to their attention in a calm and civilized way. Or otherwise, bring it to my attention and I'll see what the problem is.

8. Racial Discrimination

Racial slurs or any form of harassment targeted at another race/ethnic group is prohibited.

9. No threatening or promoting terrorism

Breaking this rule will result in an instant account deletion and IP Ban. No questions asked

10. No mini-moderating

Quote :

This includes demanding that a user delete his/her post and/or getting the thread locked (e.g. "Delete your post!", "This thread should be locked."). Any action where the user attempts to take over for a mod (including any variation of "I'd rate this ___, if I could!") anywhere on a sub-forum without explicit permission may be considered mini-modding.

This is especially true when the user only posts to do so. If someone has posted in a forum where it might be hard to determine what topic belongs there, post with advice addressing the question and suggesting (Note: NOT demanding) that the user post in the appropriately named forum.

Posting in a particularly troublesome thread will likely get you into as much trouble as other users. The best way to take care of rule violations is to PM a mod. Only PM the mods once per violation. It is the responsibility of the mods and the sub-mod groups to enforce the rules. Please make sure to PM the correct person in the sub-mod groups, as they can only moderate in specific boards and are not global moderators. Please do not hinder them by posting in threads that need moderator action. It only serves to revive the thread and create even more of a hassle.

Additionally, if someone has already posted proper advice on where to post, do not post the same advice worded in a different way, or posting "Member X is right!" or other statements along those lines.

11. No spamming

Multiple posting and bumping are not considering spamming, provided it is not done in excess (i.e. bumping every 5 minutes, etc.)

NOTE: Posting "+1 post count" or other internet memes may be considered spamming and as such receive a +2 or +5 warn, depending on whether the moderator classifies it as Mild or Intentional. Unless you own a club that is dedicated to them, then it is acceptable

12. No raids or any attempted overthrows

ANY violation of this rule will result in an immediate IP Ban/account deletion.

13. No harassing others

Pretty much incorporates rule 2 and 7. This includes making others feel bad and profit from it, attempting to slander other people, impersonating a moderator, etc.

14. Take care of your account at ALL times

Keep in mind that anything done using your account WILL be considered if you have done it yourself, even if you didn't actually do it. But we'll check the IPs to see if it's being done from another location. Then, I can just ban the offending IP and you won't get banned.

In the event of a suspected hack, PM me the details and I'll try to deal with it to the best of my ability. Meanwhile, try changing your password every time to reduce the chances of it happening

15. Advertising

NO advertising of real-life products/businesses (includes Wall Street, eBay or some other exchange companies/corporations) without getting the approval of 1 of the Administrators/Super Moderators. We are not Wall Street, so please remember that. Any link not approved will be removed without warning. Advertising your own websites is allowed, provided that it does not contain illegal content. Just don't advertise it anywhere except in the Affiliates forum (but only use it if you wish to affiliate your site with ours).

Advertising products in a thread can be a bannable offense, depending on the section/moderator that handles it

16. Moderators have final say

If a staff member bans a user, it is for a good reason. You are free to ask them why, but they are not obligated to tell you why as it is between them and the banned member. However, they are free to tell you via PM/IM if they feel like doing so. DO NOT put it up as a thread because it will be locked.

17. No harsh Cnc (criticism)

I am not taking away your right to give criticism, but by default, tone it down to a mild degree unless the thread creator allows for it. Then, by all means, be hard to your heart's content.

(I'm well aware that not everyone on the internet has a kind heart, but please show some consideration.)

18. Signatures

Section A - Content

As stated in rule 15, no advertising real life businesses/corporations without getting prior approval from me. Links to your own site are allowed, provided they aren't leading to any rick rolls or other trick links.

Section B - Sizes
I know a lot of you like to have big signatures, but do keep in mind that a lot of users have small screens so it increases their loading time. Basically, please keep your sigs at least 12'' (width) x 9'' (height) if you don't want to use spoilers. If you put spoilers, it will not matter how long you want to make it. Keep in mind that the moderators can change your sig if it's too big. They should send you a PM if they want you to put it in spoilers.

19. Repetitive swearing/abusive messages are grounds for an IP Ban

Basically, this coincides with rules 2 and 6. I have decided to bring up this issue after this was posted on YCM. I want to make it clear that I will not stand for this kind of behavior here. The first offense will give you a perma-ban. The second will result in an IP Ban if you use another account.

20. Release of information

Adapted from the Yugioh Card Maker Guidelines

Quote :

It is unacceptable to post another user’s private/personal/public information, including email address, location of residency, contact information, or other information without express permission from that user.

Private messages from the forum or external chat clients, emails, memos, note scribbled on napkins and all other forms of communication are classified as personal and are not to be publicly posted in any shape or form onto these forums, or PMed to other users of these forums by any member without express permission from all parties involved, or by the mod team when appropriate.

21. Other Rule

If you are told by a moderator to stop, you cannot claim that it was not stated in the rules. It is impossible and impractical to list every rule possible. Attempting to circumvent a rule will result in a more severe warning. That includes deleting a post then reposting an identical or similar version of it. That will be considered both bumping and multiple posting. Also, the determination of things such as begging, flaming, spam, whining, etc. are dependent on the moderator, not the users. Any complaints involving attempts to find loop holes in the rules and complaining that it was not explicitly stated in the rules will be ignored.

22. Attachments

The only ruling on this will be that these will only be used for uploading document files. Cards should only be used as attachments if the card maker is down and you cannot retrieve the IMG code. But otherwise, just upload them to Photobucket/Tinypic and you'll be OK.

23. Icy Clause

"Whatever is said here on YCM Academy CANNOT be used as evidence for any warnings or bans on YCM Forums"

24. Whining

To put this simply, this rule was added in response to this thread. Depending on circumstances, you may get a medium-to-high warn level from the moderators. Honestly, if you have issues with something, bring it up with the mod in charge of that section. Don't post a thread about it!

25. Misleading Titles

Basically the YCM "Misleading Title" rule will not be implemented here. BUT you cannot use inappropriate content for that (i.e. swear words, racial slurs, etc.) and somewhere in the title, needs to be something relevant to the topic [you may put it in parentheses afterwards]

26. PM Abuse

Do not spam other member's inboxes. Now I can't see what you send to other members, but if you happen to be the victim of PM abuse, send either one of the admin a PM containing the content of that message and the user's name. We'll warn and ban them from PMing for a period of time.

27. Individual forum rules

Just follow the specific forum rules for individual forums. Remember that the mods for each forum don't all operate on the same guidelines I do.


Any questions, ask them in the support thread and I'll answer them.

Rules 24 and 25 added.

In terms of 24, it's mostly referring to the given link and the problem in Card Contests (grading on holo effects instead of actual card). Once again, PM the CC mod or whoever mods the section you're complaining about and DO NOT make a thread about that. That can/will lead to a flame war against you and also resulting in a warning/ban.

#25 is basically the "Misleading Titles" rule. You can be creative with your title, but don't add anything explicitly inappropriate and it must have something to do with the topic (may add actual subject in parentheses afterwards)

Attention all members of YCM Academy.

"Due to a high amount of intentional rulebreaking the past couple hours, the moderation team WILL be strictly enforcing the rules regarding inappropriate content and spamming"

As such, any penalties listed in the warning thread will be issued upon sight of a rule violation. Be warned, although this site supports creativity, we do not support inappropriate material and explicit porn/hentai.

IF YOU ARE CAUGHT POSTING PORNOGRAPHY/INAPPROPRIATE MATERIAL, YOU CAN/WILL HAVE YOUR ACCOUNT DELETED AND BE IP BANNED ON THE SPOT! NO EXCEPTIONS!

Rule 26 added.
Basically it deals with the PM system. Just don't abuse it guys, because I do have the power to ban you from sending PMs.
