Every player deserves to be heard and able to speak their mind
The VanillaVistaMC forums are a place to chat, suggest, and meet new people in an easier and organized way. However with this there must be some guidlines to follow to keep the interactions appropriate and engaging. The main goal is to ensure toxicity and inappropriate content do not make their way to the forums and that every player has the ability to be heard.
By following a few simple rules we can ensure the forums stays a reputable source of conversation and interaction.
Things to DO:
Every member deserves to be treated with respect. Positive and polite posts create a friendly and welcoming environment that all members will feel comfortable in.
Sensible, well thought-out and legible posts help other members understand what is being explained.
Posting in the most relevant section will ensure threads are seen by members most interested in the subject. Threads posted in the wrong section will generally be moved by moderators.
Threads should remain on the topic that they are discussing, they should not be discussing other topics. A new thread should be made for a new discussion.
Please do not make posts to inform other users of the forum rules. Use the Report Rule Breakers to send in forum posts that you know are breaking the rules.
Things to NOT DO:
As a family friendly forum we require that all content posted on the forum is suitable for people of all ages, this includes words, videos and pictures. Any posts containing inappropriate content or profanity (including self censored, automatically censored, acronyms and slang) will be removed from the forum.
Do not insult or flame other members of the forum. Similarly, do not post with the intention of provoking a reaction from fellow members. This includes encouraging flame wars. Instigation is not tolerated.
A spam post is a post that provides no value to the discussion, or a thread that creates nuisance for others. The most common spam posts are posting "tl:dr;", "+1", "this", posting image macros, and nothing but memes or images. Threads are considered spam when they are duplicates, or devoid of valuable content. Replying to spam is not permitted either.
Posting in a thread only to bring it back to the front page of the forum is not allowed, a thread should only be on the front page of a forum if there is active discussion taking place.
Do not use VanillaVistaMC to generate traffic or attention for your endeavor.
Do not behave in a manner that can cause distress, harm or inconvenience to other members, staff or the forum itself. This includes, but is not limited to, discrimination, bullying, offensive material, using multiple forum accounts, breaching others privacy and accessing others accounts without permission.
