Assyrian Cafe Forums Rules

Postby chicago-girl » Sat Jan 20, 2007 12:18 am

Welcome to the Assyrian Cafe Forums Rules

With every great community, there are the rules and laws that ensure people coexist peacefully. These forums are no different. There are boundaries to what is and what is not allowed. These rules are in place to ensure the Assyrian Café Forums continue to be a friendly place where members can learn and share information on a variety of computing and non-computing topics.

Posts must be made in either Assyrian or English .

Material that is knowingly defamatory, illegal, abusive, threatening or harassing, is strictly prohibited. As with anything, you, as a member, should use good common sense when posting. In other words, you agree not to be a jerk. Posts containing personal attacks on another user will be edited or deleted with no warning or consent.

Right to Privacy
You will not violate a person's privacy by publishing information against another member, information that is private and personal.


Topics/posts that are just complete nonsense will be deleted, or have the entire thread locked, at the moderators discretion.

Topics/posts containing such will be edited or deleted accordingly.


Material that is sexually or otherwise obscene is not permitted on these forums. Topics/posts containing such will be deleted on sight.


Posting the same thing in more than one forum is not allowed. Should this occur, then only the thread in the most relevant forum will be left open; all others will be locked and subsequently deleted.

If you violate any of these rule, your account may be automatically banned without prior warning.

What should I do if I see objectionable material on the forums? -
It is important that members recognize the real-time nature of these forums; the moderators cannot always monitor the contents of posted messages. As such, we depend upon you to inform them when members are violating our rules. You must also recognize that they cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted action is taken.
To contact a moderator send them a private message.

What happens if I break the rules?

At best your post will be edited or "deleted" by one of the moderators and you might be issued a warning. If the offence is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse so please don't.
Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued a temporary ban - your posting privileges will be disabled for seven days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.
For persistent and or deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Nuked". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and your account will no longer function. If you re-register, your new account will be nuked immediately and any new threads/posts will automatically be removed, regardless of their nature


In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:
1. Use common sense. Anything that you say or do carries consequences with it. If you find yourself questioning the nature of what you're going to post, then it's probably not safe to post it. Save yourself trouble and ourselves time, think before you post.
2. Always be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world of different ages, genders, and races. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Racism.
