Forum rules
Sanctions, notifying

Every breach of the rules will lead to a warning. After three warnings, the account of the concerned one will be blocked and its user banished from the Forum and from Metalship.

In order to give the users a sense of responsability and to not give moderators the role of a cop, a system to report disrepectful messages has been put in place. If you think that one of the messages doesn't abide by the rules, click on the "report this message to a moderator" button . Its author will be warned (anonymously), to ask him/her to apologize and edit his/her message.

Rules in brief

Here is the summary of the general idea of the rules. To use the forum and post messages, you need to read the full rules and agree to abide with it, though.

  • Spell : no SMS style. Please respect your readers by correcly spelling your words.
  • Respect and open-mindedness : respect the other and their opinions.
  • Courtesy : don't pique others or post offensive or shocking messages.
  • Spam ads : spamming, advertising and trolling are not allowed, either on the forum or on the chat. For promoting your band, submit some news, ads or live concerts info in the appropriate sections.
  • Animated images : no animated picture as avatar or in signature (and no image in signature), to make easier the reading and surfing.
  • Public space : keep in mind that forums and chats are public. Keep your personal business as just that - personal, and solve it in private.
