Rules & Guidelines

Introduction

We like to keep things pretty simple, but like any community it would fail without rules and guidelines to protect all of our hard work. Below are our rules and guidelines. Rules are aggressively enforced and usually very strict. Guidelines generally are more relaxed and are intended to give you a basic idea how we would like for you to conduct yourself.

Everyone makes mistakes so we aren't going to just throw you out on your ear if you break the rules. We will give you a notice that you have broken a rule and either correct it for you or give you the chance to correct it depending on the type of violation. Chronic abuse of the rules and guidelines will result in banning, though we hope we never have to resort to that. These rules are here to help ensure that everyone has a safe place to meet and share ideas.

Note: Rules are subject to change as needed.

Rules
  • Signatures and Forum Handles may not contain any obscene or unsuitable material.
  • Signatures may not contain links to affiliates or other advertising. You may link to your own site.
  • Posts may not be adult or sexually explicit in nature.
  • Flaming will not be tolerated. Debates are expected, however, this is not a free pass to assault a member for any reason.
  • Advertising of any kind is prohibited.
  • Duplicate posts are not allowed. Do not cross post. Pick the most appropriate forum and post your item there. If there is not a forum for your post feel free to suggest one in the "Suggestion Box".
  • Do not post links to warez (pirated software, mp3s etc.), warez sites or sites with pornographic or objectionable content.
  • You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages.
  • Do not post personal information, such as names, phone numbers, home addresses of any members, including your own. Your post will be deleted and your account will be terminated.
Guidelines
  • Signatures must be limited to 4 lines. No excessive font use (like a million colors or 4 point fonts etc). Images in signatures must not be animated or exceed 4 lines. Same rules that apply to signatures apply to images.
  • Please don't use foul language or cursing.
  • Quoting is encouraged, but please don't quote 5 paragraphs and reply with one line. Quote enough material to show what you are replying to.
  • Excessively short posts and one-liners are discouraged. We realize at times these are appropriate, but please use good judgment.
  • No Cap Locks. Please do not post messages with the subject or post all in capital letters, or your message will be deleted.
  • No Elite or Chat Speak. We don't want to see a sentence composed solely of chat abbreviations, like ir8, l8r, rofl, etc. It's okay to write a sentence and end it with lol, but excessive use will be edited and removed.

Although the administrators and moderators of Army.com Forums will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this forum, it is impossible for us to review all messages. All messages express the views of the author, and neither the owners of Army.com Forums, nor Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd. (developers of vBulletin) will be held responsible for the content of any message.

By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-orientated, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violate of any laws.

The owners of Army.com Forums reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason.
