Guidelines

First things first. To begin, please take a look in the FAQ section. There is lots of great info in there on how to use these forums.

In order to keep things flowing here on the IndianHeadNation forums, I wanted to advise you all on how to help.

Regarding board rules

* All posts will be moderated following the rules dictated by IndianHeadNation (see etiquette and violation's stuff below).
* If you break any of the rules, your post will be locked or deleted and you may risk being banned from these forums.

Discussion Board Etiquette

* ALL CAPS
I know, I know…everyone wants to be heard. With so many topics and posts, it’s hard to stand out from the crowd. But did you know that TALKING IN ALL CAPS online indicates that you are shouting? It’s a very aggressive way to post and it doesn’t come off as being very friendly. Moderators can (and do) delete any topics or posts that use ALL CAPS.

* OT POSTS
I think it’s great that many of you have found meaningful friendships with other IndianHeadNation.com users. I also think it’s great that you want to engage them in conversations that have nothing to do with IndianHeadNation (OT = Off Topic…in other words, a conversation that is not relevant to the topic.) I’ve noticed a number of similar OT topics in forums which end up burying the pertinent on topic information. For newcomers, this makes for a very poor user experience. Moderators have been instructed that they can (and should) merge similar topics, so please don’t panic if you notice that your conversation was merged with another similar one. We’re just trying to keep the information as easy to find as possible.

* PLAYER BASHING
Ok, ok, ok…so being a little critical of performances is one thing, but players are people too. Whether you think their performances were good or bad, feel free to talk about it. But please do so as if you were talking to the player face to face. For example, try to refrain from saying "so-and-so sucks" unless you have facts to back your statement up. Otherwise, it could be taken as spam.

* BACK SEAT MODERATING
Our staff is completely capable of enforcing the rules and quite frankly, it gets annoying when someone responds with "This topic is dumb. Lock it please!" or "Ban this guy, he's a moron!" We can handle it and that is why we are here. If you have any personal issues with anything, please feel free to PM us, but leave it off the boards.


Violation's (THESE WILL RESULT IN A WARNING)

We'd like to remind users that we are like a free society that encourages discussion, and in such a society free people interact with each other as they please, as long as they do not blatantly infringe on anyone else's right to do the same. Below is a list that violates that right.

-Spam / Self Promotion (1)
-Disrespectful Attitude towards other Members (1)
-Offensive Posts / Behavior towards other Members (2)
-Disrespectful Attitude towards Staff (2)

If you need any assistance, please feel free to contact Ton or one of the moderators (BlackhawkPaul, Supraman, or MassHavoc) on this forum.

On behalf of the moderating team here, thanks for your participation. Please, buckle up, keep your hands and feet in at all times, and enjoy the ride.
