The Community Roles
Treat all community users with respect
1. Avoid posts that are comprised of incomprehensible language and/or annoying formatting.
2. Avoid posting whole articles / large amounts of pictures. Where applicable, link to content rather than recreate it.
3. Avatars, when implemented, must be small and should not use excessive/flashing animation.
Do not spam the boards
Official Warnings Official Warnings are reserved for more severe offenses. They are only handled through private messages (PMs) or emails and are considered confidential. Warnings are indicated with the word "Warning" in the subject line. Any public posts directly in reference to warnings received will result in the post being deleted and the issuance of another warning or additional action. All warnings are carefully tracked. Members with a large number of warnings will be submitted for banning.
Account Suspension An account suspension is issued in circumstances when members are in need of a cool-down period, such as following an argument or inflammatory post. Account suspensions may also be issued while moderators discuss other issues with an account such as the possibility of a fraudulent account. Account Suspension can last for any length of time, specified at the time of the issuance. A time out will be sent by email and will have the words "Account Suspension" in the subject line, and the length of time in the body of the message.
Permanent Ban Permanent bans are only used in the most extreme cases. It should be noted that actions on these boards may also result in the banning from forum activities or even the convention itself if deemed necessary. Banned users creating another account will result in that account being banned. Allowing a banned user to use your account will result in your account being banned. In addition, if a community member commits any of the following offenses, they may be immediately submitted for banning.
Lastly, have fun! We are all here for the same reason: Gen Con, The Best Four Days in Gaming.
