1General Club Penguin Exclusive Rules 1.1 on Thu Dec 31, 2009 6:05 am

Welcome to The Club Penguin Exclusives Forums! You must follow these rules at all times or there will be consequences. It looks like a lot, but a lot of it is COMMON SENSE. At least read the bold statements before you proceed to the forums.

English Only
The moderators/administrators and other users must be able to read and comprehend your posts. To ensure this, we ask that everyone posts in English. All mods/admins are able to read and write in English.

Flaming
Any posts that are hateful or mean in nature will be removed immediately. We do not tolerate attacks based on race, religion, gender, s**ual orientation. No personal threats or harassment. This includes posting pictures representing an attack. Debate opinions and not the people behind them. This also applies to all forums, threads, posts, userpages, profiles, avatars and signatures.

Hacking and Hacker Discussions
Any discussion of hackers, except to say that you've been hacked, will be removed from the forums. This includes admission of hacking, accusations of others being hackers, sharing of hacking programs (3rd party programs), and altering original game files. Inherent bugs and/or glitches of games will still be allowed to be discussed. Doing a glitch can hardly be the fault of the player as these will occur accidental to many players or should be fixed by the game provider.

This also applies to all forums, threads, posts, userpages, profiles, avatars and signatures.

Impersonation Of Other Users

Creating accounts on the site with similar names of existing users in order to cause chaos or misconceptions towards that user is not allowed and it can lead to permanent suspension from the site. Anyone impersonating or acting like they are an administrator or moderator is not allowed and can result in disciplinary action. If a user finds a thread or post that is inappropriate please report the thread or post and let the administration and moderating staff handle the situation.

Multiple/Sharing Accounts
Members are only allowed one username per person in a household and are strongly discouraged from sharing accounts with other family members and / or friends. If a guideline violation is severe enough, it may become necessary to ban/delete one or all of the usernames on the same computer, depending on the severity. You are responsible for anyone and everyone who uses your account and/or accesses other accounts from your computer.
The actions of one person could easily directly impact all known shared message board accounts.
NOTE: This does not apply to Admins/Moderators, we sometimes need multiple accounts to test technical issues that come up from various user levels and to do that properly it requires us to create "test" accounts.

Name Changes
One name change each year will be allowed. To use your name change, a valid reason for requesting a change will be required. "I want to," or any variation thereof, will not be a considered a valid reason. To request a name change, please make a thread in Help & Support, a Moderator or Admin will look at this, and see if your reason is valid enough.

If you have been suspended for a period of more than five days, you will not be able to receive a name change.

Personal Information

This site has children present therefore asking for or volunteering personal information is not allowed. Personal Info consists of Real Life Names, Age, Gender, Location, Email Address exchanges, Instant messenger ID's, D-name, Password/Account Information, School Information and other similar details. This also applies to posting personal pictures of the users, their schools, homes (that include their exact locations), etc.

Signature Lengths
Users should be considerate of other users on the forums. Excessive signatures cause the flow of the threads to be disrupted. Signature lengths over 10 text lines will be removed from user's profiles. This also applies to graphics that are larger than 500 x 200 pixels in length and width size. It doesn't matter how big the font size is as long as the total dimensions taken up by the signature text & graphic does not exceed 500 x 200 in pixel length and width. So the total dimensions of the signature should not exceed this size:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Also, the file size of the signature should not exceed 200KB. We impose this limit as a courtesy for those on dial-up.

Spamming
"Spam" refers to posting identical and/or irrelevant messages to one thread or many different threads that have nothing to do with the intended subject, or posts that disrupt a thread or fill the message board with clutter. Posting for the sole purpose of boosting your post count, threads with the sole purpose of posting "what I did today..." (this is a forum, not a blog or chatroom), excessive bumping
of threads (you are allowed one bump per thread twenty-four (24) hours after the last post created in the thread!), one or two letter replies (i.e. ok, LOL, Yes, agreed, nods), and excessive use of smileys as a response are all considered "spam". This applies to all forums, threads, posts, userpages, profiles, avatars and signatures.

Trolling

Intentionally posting false arguments, flames or personal attacks for no other purpose than to incite a negative reaction, annoy others or disrupt a discussion is also prohibited. These perpetrators are known as "trolls". Anyone impersonating or acting like they are an administrator or moderator is not allowed and can result in disciplinary action. If a user finds a thread or post that is inappropriate please report the thread or post and let the administration and moderating staff handle
the situation. This applies to all forums, threads, posts, userpages, profiles, avatars and signatures with the intent to harass the members or staff of this site. Violators of this policy will result in suspension of their account.

Forum Infractions

Forum infractions may result in immediate actions being taken that can range from written warnings, temporary suspension or permanent suspension from this site, depending on the severity and frequency of the offense:

  1. Swearing or Cussing - profane or obscene language, usually of surprise or anger.
  2. R or X-rated material (picture or website) - Censor material deemed inappropriate for children and most adults.
  3. Violence - Violence is any attitude, word, or action that threatens or destroys the human dignity of a human person or groups of persons.
The Moderators here have a monumental task watching these forums. Due to the vast number of members and the incredible number of posts per day, we sometimes do not manage to immediately catch all rule violations which is why we do ask for your help in catching things that might slip by.

Reporting A Thread Or Post To A Moderator
If you see anything questionable or another member is getting out of hand, click on the [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] on the lower right corner of the post in question. Please include a brief message stating who the person is & what they did specifically. Do not use this feature for any other reason and do not take matters into your own hands by replying, or scolding a person. Please click the button to report a post only once. An email is sent to all Moderators/Administrators for that forum and it will be dealt with as soon as they see the email.

Off-Topic/Nonsense Posts
If your post/thread doesn't make sense or is filled with gibberish, these posts will be removed. While we expect that some topics will stray a bit, if it completely hijacks the thread and/or disrupts the flow, those posts will either be removed or split into its own thread.

Double/Triple Posting
Double posting" is posting two or more times in a row. If you want to add onto your post, click on the [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] button and it will let you add more information into your post. If your computer connection messes up and you somehow post the exact same thing twice, do not worry, just edit out your second post and a Moderator will clean it up. But, if you post after 24 hours and it contributes to
the thread, you will not be given an infraction.


Users caught breaking rules will be given infractions, temporary bans, or permanent bans (Permabans) depending on the severity of the offense.

These rules were Updated August 13, 2010
