Should a user have any problems or issues regarding any subject on the forum or the acts of any other user, they should refer the matter to firstname.lastname@example.org to deal with. It is not the place of users to moderate or in any way govern or judge others.
There are three main principal guidelines:
- Be courteous and polite. Show respect to the opinions and feelings of others. Use of the forums is a privilege, not a right.
- Engage your brain before your mouth. You are responsible for your own words and any harm they may cause.
- Don't dilute the forums with irrelevant and unnecessary talk. Moralorder.com is a professional, moderated forum. It's a place to talk about the project and its community. It's NOT a free speech forum.
The owners of moralorder.com reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread with or without reason or notice. Polite enquiries will be listened to. Any form of harassment will not be tolerated and is cause for instant banishment from the site.
By registering with moralorder.com, you agree to the following guidelines and policies.
The administrators of these forums do not tolerate posts that contain any of the following subjects or elements:
- Politics or political propaganda in any form - If you wish to discuss politics, kindly find an appropriate forum for such discussion. Topics of this nature resort in lengthy and unnecessary arguments that are nevertheless totally unrelated to the subject.
- Potentially inflammatory discussions or comments regarding social issues. These include, but are not limited to, topics such as racism, sexism, religion, xenophobia or homosexuality.
- Crude, derogatory, inappropriate, or disrespectful remarks aimed at any individual(s) Offensive or unnecessarily abrasive comments directed at any individual are not tolerated in any form. These include anything from personal vendettas to unnecessarily insulting comments directed at the work of any individual. Critiques of work displayed should not include unnecessarily derogatory remarks (whether aimed at the user or the work itself) in any form.
- Hate speech - Derogatory, anti-social or inflammatory remarks aimed at any group of people, with the intention to incite a mass response are not only a crime in most countries, but are also totally unacceptable here.
- Any comments made with the sole intention of disruption or to cause distress to any individual(s) Whether made metaphorically, or otherwise, any personal defamatory remarks directed at any individual(s) are unacceptable
- Pornography - This excludes the tasteful use of nudity in artwork. Images or animations depicting blatantly pornographic acts including intercourse, masturbation, bestiality or abuse, and links to pornographic sites are not tolerated under any circumstances.
- Unnecessarily violent, crude, or obscene imagery - Scenes depicting themes such as rape, or any other brutality will not be tolerated in any form.
- Racial slurs - No matter how amusing some people might find them, most users consider jokes, or underhanded comments, directed at any race or culture highly offensive.
- Piracy - Users requesting or advertising warez (or links to warez sites), serial numbers, cracks, or illegally copied software documentation, are not welcome on this forum. We do not tolerate any members that, in any way, aid or encourage the use of illegally acquired software.
- Posts that are potentially in breach of any NDA Agreements - This includes screenshots. Even if you are not the one who signed the agreement, you are still not permitted to post such matter.
- General Notes - Posts containing subject matter as listed above will be removed in all cases, and should the author of such posts persist in posting such matter, that user will no longer be allowed to post on the forums.
We believe that these guidelines are fair and acceptable, and that all users should respect our reasons for keeping them in place. The admins are not there to police everyone, but rather to protect users from offensive or unlawful content.
Should a user have any problems or issues regarding any subject on the forum or the acts of any other user, they are encouraged to contact the Administrators who will attend to the matter. Users are also encouraged to use the Report this post function within threads, should they feel that any comments posted on the forums have violated any of the guidelines stipulated here.
