PostSubject: Chaos Era Academy Rules   Tue Oct 09, 2012 1:49 am
The following are the rules established by the Chaos Era Academy that will be applied to all users on the forums and chatroom at all times.

* Any rule changes are to be agreed upon by a consensus of the majority of Chaos Era Staff, with a 3 day (maximum) vote with all non-votes counted as an abstaination.
* There are no exceptions to the rules unless listed or defined in this post.
* Sabbaticus has the right to veto a vote in extreme circumstances.
* Any disputes with the rules will be handled by a member of Chaos Era Academy staff and appropriate action will be taken upon as a result.

Rules on offenses and punishments:-

Class 1: Minor Offenses: 1 warning

* Necro-posting (Bumping old threads)
* Posting in a language other than English for the sole purpose of excluding the majority of users
* Spamming (Double posting, irrelevant/meaningless posting, off-topic posting)
* Abuse of Profile privileges (signature, avatar, spamlinking)
* Advertising without permission from Sabbaticus
* Offensive language once a staff member has said to stop
* Posting game rolls in a non-games post or sub-forum, or any topic/subforum irrelevant to that game.
* Undermining the staff
* Any Talk of Monetary Exchange for whatever reason
* NSFW (Not Safe For Work) material
* Making baseless accusations

Class 2: Moderate Offenses: 2 warnings

* Harassment (Trolling, insults, cybering, advertising)
* Evading or attempting to evade bans
* Attempting to find loop holes in the rules with malicious or exploitative intent
* Disruption on either the forums or chatroom (such as ALL CAPS posting)
* Flooding (repeated posts in either the chatroom or forums of the same/similar content)
* Arguing with Chaos Era staff members on bans, warnings, locked/deleted thread or the rules
* Requesting/posting a users real life information (Such as bank card numbers, passport numbers, telephone numbers, home address', etc.)

Class 3: Serious Offenses: 3 warnings or immediate permaban

* Cyber crime (Hacking, threats of hacking or attempts to hack, malware posting, identity theft, etc)
* Copyright infringement (Piracy, plagiarism, off-site links to piracy websites)
* Having more than 1 account per person (This includes deleting accounts)
* Threats of harm or suicide/murder
* Posting pornographic, illegal or serious NSFW material
* Defaming this website
* Using an offensive username
* Hate speech against protected groups
* Astroturfing for malicious means

Exceptions to the rule:

- Taunting of other players in a competitive/fun manner is allowed. However the line is drawn at harassment of other players, with a moderator to determine whether a line has been crossed or not
- Chaos Era Administrators have the right to change a rule in serious cases of breach or exploitation of the rules with those rules to take effect immediately, those rules can/will be re-evaluated at a later time (within 5 days of inaction) for a consensus vote for a more permanent change or having it only as a temporary rule for a certain period of time
- Serious cases of rule violations can lead to immediate Permaban even with no prior warnings given
- Multiple violations in a short period of time may be given in verbal warnings instead of written ones
- Double posting are allowed exclusive only to the War subforum for the purposes of record keeping and live updates, however irrelevant/off-topic spam is still considered double posting and will be given a warning.

Warning System:

1st warning - verbal warning, put on record
2nd warning - written warning, put on record
3rd warning - written warning, put on record, disposal of 50% of your DP
4th warning - written warning, put on record, disposal of 100% of your DP, Timed ban determined on the seriousness of the violations
5th warning - Permaban


Green rules:
The following rules do not apply to any other group with the exception of basic users (Green users) who haven't been or are in the process of being tested to qualify for a dorm placement:

Prohibition in participation in:
* Shadow Arena
* Events
* Tournaments within CEA

Avatar and Signature Rules
To make sure everybody can access the forum at an acceptable speed without having to download outrageous sized avatars and signatures I've decided it's important to implement the below guidelines:

Avatars must NOT exceed 180px width by 300px height.

The maximum size of a signature should not exceed 5 lines of text OR 1 image with a maximum size of 500px width by 200px height.

If you use an image it must NOT exceed 300kb in size.

You are not allowed to have more than 1 image in your Signature (Userbars are allowed. If you have more than 4 userbars, you must put them in a Spoiler code).

You are not allowed to have more than 1 Smiley in your Signature.

If the above avatar and signature rules are not withheld, the violation in question will be removed and a verbal warning (not on record) will be given.
If the offense is repeated, features on the forum will then be disabled for you.
