The Moderators of this forum want to make sure that your time spent here at the Gamer's Haven is as enjoyable as possible. The purpose of this forum is the discussion and distribution of knowledge and tactics concerning videogames. In order to make sure that everyone has a fair chance to voice their opinion there are some rules we require members to follow to post in this forum. Please take the time to read and understand these rules.
First of all, all of the general forum rules apply to this forum as well. These rules can be found in the Imperial Edicts section of the forum, and we suggest that you all become familiar with them. Here is a link to them as well:
Forum Rules (Revised)
So the Gamer's Haven Rules are a reiteration of some of those rules, and some are specific to the Gamer's Haven. Just because we don't have a rule from the general Forum Rules written here does not mean it does not apply in this forum, and you will be expected to follow all the general forum guidelines, as well as the Gamer's Haven Rules when posting here.
The following are grounds for moderation:
. Any posts that a Moderator feels is spam will be deleted. "Spam" is when you post just for the sake of posting, contributing very little or absolutely nothing to the conversation. "Spam Topics" will also be deleted. This forum is for discussions, if you post a topic that simply requires a one-word answer from people, it will be deleted. Also, this may seem harsh, but thanking people for their help is not necessary to do in the forum. If you want to express your gratitude to someone, please send them a Private Message.
Examples of spam:
Topic: How many ninja were there?
Topic: Was it raining when Amy left?
Redundant Questions and Posts
. This is technically spam, but it could also be an honest mistake. If it is, no worries, just try not to do it again. What we mean by this is simply do not ask unnecessary questions or post information twice. Any posts in response to a redundant question or post will be deleted as well. If you feel that the person posting the redundancy is honestly confused, then you can PM them the answer to their question, but don't actually post a reply. Redundant Topics will also be deleted. This forum covers a very broad range of topics, but please try to make sure that a topic you want to discuss is not already in motion before you post it.
Topic: Mythical Game
Post: I really enjoyed this game. The in game world had a rich history, with many stories and books to read. The neat part was that most of this information was completely unnecessary to actually beat the game, it just gave you a better understanding of the world.
The coolest story was about a mythical hero named Hirotazawa, he was a red-haired halfling, half-demon half-man, who carried two swords. He helped liberate the kingdom from the clutches of Zurg and restored the Cai Dynasty.
Redundant questions and posts:
What color was Hirotazawa's hair?
What is a halfling?
What was that mythical hero's name?
Yeah, I liked this game too! There was this one story about a a mythical hero named Hirotazawa, he was a red-haired halfling, half-demon half-man, who carried two swords. He helped liberate the kingdom from the clutches of Zurg and restored the Cai Dynasty that I really liked.
. Insulting someone because of their personal beliefs, religious beliefs, preferences, sexual orientation, race, gender, etc. will not be permitted. However, I do not want to discourage debate. You are completely free to express your views, but you must use tact. Saying you don't like something because it's stupid is flaming. If, though,you were to say you didn't like a game because you found the controls to be sluggish, and unresponsive, that is acceptable.
Examples of flaming:
That game is stupid, and you're stupid for liking it.
Anyone who likes games about ducks must be a moron.
. Topics that have nothing to do with the subject of Gamer's Haven will either be moved to the appropriate forum, or deleted completely. Please try to post topics in the appropriate forum. Unrelated material within a topic will either be split into it's own, separate topic or deleted completely.
Examples of unrelated material:
Topic: How do you properly tenderize a brisket?
Topic: Do you like cats?
Grammar and Punctuation
. There is a massive amount of leniency with this rule, but please try to use proper grammar and punctuation in your posts. If you have an excessive amount of misspellings or bad diction in your post, and a moderator feels that you are doing it on purpose, your post may be deleted.
:arrow: Redundant Topics
. Please search for similiar topics on the first few pages before making your own topic. The forum also has a nifty search feature that can help as well. We do not want 5 "What is your favorite RPG character?" posts. This isn't the biggest rule, but it results in a warning and topic delection. Further abuse will result in more serious consequenses. (Possible temporary ban)
That is all for now. If additions are made to the list of rules, then we will make you aware through the use of an announcement at the top of the forum page. Have fun, and we look forward to having pleasant conversations with you in the future.
