Forum Rules 3.0 04/20/2016The Rules of The Land
Welcome to the XGN Forums. Our rules are pretty short, simple (and sometimes sweet & chewy). We (The Forum Staff) ask that you follow them at all times. Otherwise, Prod will kick your butt.
Let's get down to business.
You have the right to remain here. Provided you follow the rules, or pay tribute in the form of Dr. Pepper.
Remember the XGN Code of Conduct? That still applies here. Remember the Forum Disclaimer? That applies too.
You have the right to have ONE and ONLY ONE forum account. All others will be found, will be subject to shock-therapy and Chinese water torture, and subsequently forcibly removed with the equivalent of being sent to the void..Or a forum ban. (If you feel wrongful action was taken against you, contact a forum staff member) or send an email to [email protected]
Please don't post content that may be: Abusive, Obscene, Vulgar, Slanderous, Hateful, Threatening, Sexually-oriented, or just overall disrespectful. We will remove it, we will remove you, and then we'll go back to playing our games, and eating hot cheetos. Please DO NOT post hundreds of counting games throughout your divisional forums (ex: “count to a million”)
Be respectful to others. Even if you don't like them. We don't particularly care what reasons you have, which may or may not include: "They stole my pink doll (or "action figure") " or "They brought my K/D in the negative."
We ask politely that you keep your pictures of your cat out of the shoutbox. Or any other pictures for that matter. or videos, or GIFs (It's pronounced like Gift without the T, btw...), or basically any media that may stretch the shoutbox or cause inconvenience for others. Nobody likes an inconvenience.
Please follow any forum specific rules which may be conveniently posted in a Pinned Topic in the specific forums or in an Announcement of that forum. Failure to do so may result in a Nerf War or worse.
Please don't use the forums as your personal marketplace. We don't appreciate your requests for 48-hours, or your lovely ads for male-enhancement drugs.
We have the following tools at our disposal. Topic Locks, Topic Deletions, Post Deletions, Post Suspensions, Forum Suspensions, Forum Bans, IP Bans, Starvations, Executions, Floggings, Shock Therapy, and Good Ol' Fashioned Beatings with Leather Belts and our defcon 5 warning system (who can forget about that)
Oh, did we mention that we may use those tools at any time, for any reason we feel necessary, possibly without warning? Including if you break any of the rules listed here OR if we ask you to stop and you continue like a child in a supermarket? Yes, ... we may.
We ask you use Common Sense around the forums. That's all.
And of course the essential "We may alter these rules at any time without notice" statement which we will place here.
Play nice, here's a cookie, Game On!
The general punishment guidelines are as follows:
1st Offense: 2-day suspension of posting privileges
2nd Offense: 7-day suspension of posting privileges
3rd Offense: 2-week suspension from the forums
4th Offense: Indefinite ban or indefinite suspension of posting privileges
Note: Punishments are subject to change at the forum administration's discretion. Every situation is different, and may or may not call for different discipline than what is noted above.
Below I have written some terms and what they mean so that everyone is clear on them I hope this helps Spamming- The act of posting several times in a row without having anybody post after you regardless of it being a “spam” section this is not an exception and you will be warned/suspended. Posting several things over and over again throughout your squad and division that are non xgn related. If its important information regarding the div/squad then its not “spam” Flaming- The act of disrespecting an individual person, the community as a whole or threatening a squad/division is the act of flaming and will be banned on site with no warning whatsoever so be careful what you say and who you say it to. Dead topics- Topics/threads that are considered “dead” which means they are older than a month and have less than 10 replies the moderation team goes through and moves them to our web staff trash can that only web staff members, and owners can see.This is done on a weekly basis so if you’re posts are being “deleted” they aren’t they are being simply moved and the sections kept clean as possible

Shoutbox rules 11/23/2016Rules For the Shoutbox Do not flame (disrespect) other forum members. Please keep in mind that what you may consider a joke may be seen as offensive by someone else. If somebody is purposely starting a problem or Continuing one report it to the attention of a Forum Staff member Do not use abusive language, racism, Anti Homo-sexual slander. Asking and or pestering Forum Staff for Moderator abilities consistently will result in suspensions. Asking to be Banned or deleted will result in such action, even if in a joking manner.

Its highly noticeable when people are Actively Avoiding the Filters.
