Forum Rules

Registration to this forum is free! We do insist that you abide by the rules and policies detailed above.

Use of the Website is governed by our Terms of Use policy. The Forum Policy is incorporated into this Agreement. The complete Terms of Use policy is located at Terms Of Use.

The following rules list the most serious violations:

  1. No irrelevant Content - AONet Forums is where traders meet to talk about trading. This forum is designed for traders looking to share ideas, discuss the markets and interact as a community with the goal of improving your trading and share knowledge. Do not post anything that is not related to the topics. This includes promotional messages, links to your own website and spreading lies without facts. All spam will be removed immediately. All those who spam us will get their email addresses listed in our Spammers page, so that the email harvesting software pick their emails up and send them spam. Unrelated content is subject to removal.
  2. No Advertising - You are not permitted to make money using AONet Forums without written permission. You are not allowed to use the member list to obtain Instant Messenging screen names to harass people to purchase a product from you.
  3. No Discrimination - You may not insult members based on their religion, race, sex, political beliefs, or whether they are gay or straight. This is worse than flaming, because it also hurts other members of the board who fall into the category you insult. AONet Forums is a place where everyone is equal, and discrimination will NOT be tolerated!
  4. No Bullying - Do not pick on other members. The worst kind of bullying is where new members are picked on. This hurts the member as well as the board.
  5. No Flaming - Flaming harms the nice atmosphere of AONet Forums. It also causes thread's to go off topic, and most importantly, it hurts the person being flamed. The victim may defend themselves against any accusations made to them, but may not make any additional accusations to the flamer (which also counts as flaming).
  6. No Profanity or Obscene Content - Such content does not belong on AONet Forums. A censor system is in place as a backup. If you see words in your post being replaced with ****, you have done something wrong. Please edit your post and tone it down before your timer runs out. To edit a post, click the "Edit" button right below it. Cheating the censor system is against the rules.
  7. No Illegal Activity - You are not allowed to break the law using AONet Forums. This can get AONet Forums into legal trouble. Posting links to ROMs is illegal, so this counts as a violation of this rule.
  8. No Double Posting or Spamming - You may not post more than once in a row in the same thread. Posting lots of times in a row reduces the quality of the board, is a waste of the board's memory, and provides the culprit with ill earned post count points. Double posts will be merged into regular posts, and you will lose 10 post count for each of the posts excluding the first one. Your post count can be changed to a negative number if necessary. Spamming is also not allowed, and is defined as a post that has no meaning.
  9. No Topic Bumping - If a topic you created has no replies, you may not post again in it (although you may edit the post if the timer has not run out). If you made the thread because you need help with something, you may post again as long as you include additional information about your problem (the fact that you really really want it fixed does not count as additional information). You must post this in the same thread, and you are not allowed to create more than one thread per topic.
  10. No Posting Personal Info - You may not post your last name, or your street address on AONet Forums. This is because this information then becomes accessible to anyone.
  11. No Threatening to Leave the Board - You may not make posts threatening to leave the board. This causes flaming to occur. Anyone responding poorly to these threads will also be muted.
  12. No Hacking - This should go without saying, but you are not permitted to hack the board. Guessing someone else's password and succeeding counts as hacking. Members who hack will instantly be permanently banned without any warnings.

 

The following are a set of amendments to clarify the rules for those people who wish to nitpick:

Amendment 1 - There are no excuses for breaking the rules. It doesn't matter if you were angry at the time and weren't thinking straight. It doesn't matter if you were only kidding around. If you break a rule, it does the same damage, regardless of your reasons for breaking it, and you will be punished all the same.

Amendment 2 - Staff abuse will not be tolerated. As a staff member, your job is to help the people, not harm them. You may only use your powers for the purposes that they have been given to you for. There is no limit on how much you may be punished for this severe offense as this must be stopped at all costs to protect the people. This means that if you abuse your powers, there is a good chance you will be permanently banned.

Amendment 3 - Harassing the administration about punishments is not allowed. The admins are only trying to do their job, and many times they have to make difficult decisions. You may post your opinion in the thread that announces the punishment, so long as you do not flame anyone. If this thread gets out of hand, it will be closed, and you may not complain elsewhere on the board, or by other means including, but not limited to: private messages, instant messaging programs, email, telephone calls, and house visits. You also may not make threats against administrators (or other members for that matter...).

Amendment 4 - You represent and warrant that: You own the Content posted by you on AONet.eu or otherwise have the right to grant the license.
The posting of your Content on AONet.eu does not violate the privacy rights, publicity rights, copyrights, contract rights or any other rights of any person.
You agree to pay for all royalties, fees, and any other monies owing any person by reason of any Content posted by you on AONet.eu.
