Site Rules and Guidelines

Recommended Posts

ATTENTION ALL: By registering an account here, you agree to abide by and follow these rule sets.

 

1.    Members are only permitted one account. Multiple accounts/sockpuppets will be removed without notice. Further, if you were banned or suspended, you may not register with a new account.


2.    Please speak the language the majority of the users will understand, on this forum it is English. TEXT typing is not considered English. Further, 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. Users consistently abusing this will be warned.


3.    Be respectful to other users of the page. Attacks, direct or indirect, personnel or otherwise, will not be tolerated. The following examples of posts directed towards other members and/or moderators, will NOT be tolerated and may lead to an immediate ban: antagonize, threaten, belittle, harass, humiliate, racism, sexism, bigotry, and trolling.


4.    Debates about “correct” methods are going to come up on this forum. We have all seen them. Many times. Respect will be maintained throughout all debates. If you claim facts, be prepared to provide sources. Please do not simply keep repeating what you have previously stated without adding new information or facts. Further, do not copy or plagiarize others methods and claim them as your own. The moderators know how to use Google.


5.    Please be courteous to other members and the moderators and do your due diligence by searching through the forum prior to starting new threads. Redundant threads clog up forums, aggravate active members, and waste moderators’ time. 


6.    When creating new threads, Members should use an appropriate and descriptive title. Examples of bad subjects include; "Help me!", "I'm stuck!" “I Made a Monster” Examples of good titles include; "Silicone Isn’t Curing", “Paint Keeps Peeling”, “Why Am I Itching?” Please post new threads in the appropriate sections.


7.    Please stay on the subject matter of the topic when posting. Further, please refrain from making multiple posts in a row within minutes of one another. Simply edit your original post.


8.    This forum is for creature design. As such, thread topics that involve illegal activities of any kind will be removed and the poster may be banned. Examples include but are not limited to drugs and paraphernalia, violence, hacking, pirating of software or movies, or general anarchy. Further, topics regarding religion, politics, personal belief systems of any kind not directly related to creature design, will not be tolerated and will be removed with a warning administered. Keep everything “Safe for Work”, and remember that kids visit the web site. And no “versus” threads.


9.    Posts that bring a thread to the top of the New Posts list but add no content to the thread (bumps) are not permitted. This applies not only to posts that say "bump" but to those with the intent to bump, e.g. posts saying "anyone?" or the equivalent. Bumping will result in a warning.


10.    Recasting: DO NOT DO IT! Recasting is a touchy subject, at the best of times. Anyone proved to be recasting will be immediately removed. 


11.    NO Spamming. Spamming the forum, posting adverts for unrelated subjects, websites, services, self promotion, posting one word replies, or posting multiple identical threads in different sections is unacceptable. Raising your post count doesn’t get you anywhere on here. We do not give out awards, medals, or make your avatar glow for reaching a certain number of posts. Yet.


12.    Private messages, along with other private correspondence, are not to be posted on the open forum without the permission of their original authors. If someone is concerned about the content of a PM that they receive, they should report it to the moderators who will consider what action is to be taken.


13.    All forum rules, where applicable, apply to private messaging. Abuse of the private messaging system may lead to warnings and/or permanent banishment.


14.    Do not air dirty laundry that originated here on Facebook or any other social media. Sort things out in a professional manner on this site, between yourselves. Evidence (Screen captures) of airing dirty laundry on any other forum or social media site may lead to a ban. Keep it classy, people.


15.    The LostHuntersSanctum Logo, name or Graphics may not be used without written permission from the site Administrator. 


16.    Members are not to act as “back seat moderators”. If a member is obviously breaking a forum rule, simply hit the Report button. Do not point out, reprimand, or otherwise address the situation yourself. Trust us, it’s better for all of us if you let the moderators address situations. Members who constantly “act” as moderators may be warned.


17.    Moderators reserve the right to edit, remove or put on moderation queue any post at any time. The determination of what is construed as indecent, vulgar, spam, etc. as noted in these points is up to the Admin & Moderators, not users. Complaining about moderator’s actions may lead to a suspension.


18.    Moderators reserve the right to issue temporary or permanent account suspension (Bans) to users who abuse the guidelines particularly for repeated or serious rules violations. Do not complain about you or another’s punishment, lest you would like to join them.


19.    The LostHuntersSanctum reserve the right to change , add or amend these rules at any time, and the decision of the Administrator is final.


20.    If you have a question or want a clarification to one of the forum rules, please send a private PM to one of the moderators. DO NOT start a thread.

 

21. There are no items for sale nor are members allowed to sell items. If you see anything of interest all questions regarding purchase are to be handled through private message and all transactions to be done off of the site.
 

Soliciting. You may not use the forums to solicit donations, votes, or participants for surveys, contests, petitions, or product testing. Let’s face it, you’ll get more votes via Facebook, anyway. Employment requests/offers are limited to the Marketplace forum and subject to the Marketplace Rules.
Self-promotion. Self-promotional links to your blog, video channel, product, business, etc. are limited to your forum signature and your user profile, even if you have a wonderful and useful site, blog, product, or business.


The Admin is OniHunter and the Moderators on the site are identified by the "Moderator" tag in their profile.


Disclaimer : The props and costumes shown by the members on the LostHuntersSanctum are their property and the staff do not endorse the sale or copying of items and therefore are not liable and cannot be held accountable for members personnel collections. 


We hope that everyone will treat the forum and each other well, and encourage each other in their pursuit or goals.


Treat other members as you yourself wish to be treated and we'll get along fine.
 

Cheers!
