Rules of the Total Miner Forums
« on: April 04, 2013, 05:57:25 PM »
1) Do not reply to spambot topics or posts, simply report them and move along

2) Do not excessively bump topics

3) Do not spam
 This includes the shoutbox. Posting smileys 40 times is spamming. Posting a bunch of random gibberish is spamming.

4) Do not harass other members

5) Do not post personal (identifying) information on ANYONE. This includes yourself

6) Do not use racist/sexist remarks

7) Do not use inappropriate language. If you have to ask if the language is inappropriate, the answer is probably yes.

8) Use proper thread titles, if staff feels they aren't, they may be changed

9) No posting of referral links, ie, click my link and get free stuff posts, etc

10) Do not use gigantic signatures, if staff feels your sig is too large, it may be changed/removed

11) If you are not a moderator, do not try to act like one
 This means only the Admin, Developer, Global Mod, Junior Mod, and Group Manager groups have any say over forum moderation.

12) Do not ask to be a moderator, developer, staff member, tester, etc. Do not campaign to be one.

13) Do not double post, edit your original post if you need to add something

14) No discussion of religion

15) Do not bump old topics, unless you actually have something to add to it. ie, don't find a 6 month old topic and post "cool"
 Bumping a topic that is still relevant and you have a meaningful comment is ok.

16) No advertising, ie, don't post topics on your ebay shop, or selling xbox points cards, pointless "come to my website!" topics. These will be treated exactly as a spambot and removed without warning

17) Do not create multiple threads on the same subject. ie, don't post a topic for your youtube channel in 3 different subforums.

18) Do not act like a troll. Yes, we can tell the difference between someone who is being a troll and someone who has an unpopular opinion.

19) Do not create topics to ask for free things. ie, "Anyone have an xbox gold card I can have?"

20) Do not discuss any illegal activities. This includes, but not limited to piracy and hacking
  Common sense will go a long way here.

21) Do not create multiple accounts for any reason, if we find you've been doing this, all your alternate accounts will be banned without warning, and the punishment will be taken on the main account.
  If for some reason you do have more than 1 person using the forums from your PC, let the forum staff know ahead of time.

22) Do not link to any website that is inappropriate. Do not post images that are inappropriate. If the website/image you're linking would not be featured in a Disney cartoon, it's probably inappropriate

23) Do not attempt to impersonate game/website staff

24) Do not post or link to viruses or anything else that may be harmful to the hardware of another user.

25) Do not create drama
 
26) Do not create "I'm quitting the forums/game" topics. Do not create "I'm back!"" topics. Expect them to be locked/deleted.

27) Don't create groups for advertising your map/forum topic/anything that doesn't fit into one of the existing categories

28) Do not give legal advise, unless you are a lawyer. i.e. Do not say a particular activity is legal, illegal or anything else related to the law. If you are not a lawyer, then you don't know what you are talking about regarding the law, so don't talk about it.

*Certain subforums may have additional rules that do not apply to the rest of the forum. These will be pinned at the top of that subforum.


There are no mandatory punishments for any particular violation. All punishments will be at the sole discretion of the website staff and are not up for debate. All content posted on this website is at the discretion of the staff.
