Forum Posting Rules: Required reading
« on: July 04, 2017, 06:18:00 AM »
By posting anywhere on this bulletin board, it is assumed all users have read and understand the following posting rules.

1- Posts are to be made in the relevant forum. Users are asked to read the forum descriptions before posting.

2- Threads should remain on topic, do not "hijack" topics.

3- Do not open a new thread that duplicates a current topic.

4- Flame baiting, flaming, being abusing, being disrespectful, trolling, spamming or posting to incite or annoy is not allowed. If you cannot make a positive contribution to the thread, then just stay out of it.

5- Members are asked to not act as "back seat moderators". If you feel a post violates the forum rules, the use the "Report to Moderator" link in the post to report it.

6- Posting pornographic or generally offensive text, images, links, etc. will not be tolerated. This includes attempts to bypass the profanity filter.

7- Cheating allegations or descriptions are not allowed. Email to report any issues regarding this. HTC permanently bans anyone caught cheating in Aces High. We take cheating and allegations of cheating very seriously.

8- Complaints about a player's behavior online should be emailed to rather than posted to this board.

9- Users are permitted to upload one of their own avatars. Avatars must be in good taste and consistent with the other rules of this board.

10- Do not punt topics. Punting would be making a non-substantive post for the express purpose of bring the thread to the top of the thread list.

11- Members should post in a way which is consistent with "normal writing". That is users should not post excessive numbers of emoticons, large, small or colored text, etc. Similarly users should not SHOUT or use excessive punctuation (e.g. ! and ?) in topic titles or posts.

12- All posts, in public forums, should be made in the English language.

13- Threads started devoid of commentary will not be allowed (i.e. links, cut-n-pastes, clicky, read this...)

14- Posting topics or threads which are based on politics, race, or religion is expressly forbidden.

Posts and threads may be edited, deleted, or locked for violations of these rules. Continued or blatant violation of these rules may result in a temporary or permanent ban.

If you see a post which may violate the above rules, please make use of the "Report to moderator" link provided in the post in question.  You may also provide your reasoning on how it violates the above rules.
