SET RULES

This is a private board. As such, decisions made are final.
We reserve the right to remove any message board content without notice for any reason.


Rule 1: Responses to rule violations
Violating these rules will result in warnings, either formal or informal, suspensions, banning, or other sanctions.

- Do not make attacks or insult other users, either in the forums or through private messages. Disagreements and debates are fine, but don’t make it personal.
- Do not attack groups. This includes professions, races, religions, sexual orientations, genders, incomes, or even vague groups like “you people.â€‌
- Do not use ill terms which are offensive to groups, do not “flameâ€‌, “troll.â€‌ or “hazeâ€‌.

Rule 3: Respect the forum purpose and structure
- Make your posts in the appropriate forum.
- Please use the Search function. If a relevant thread already exists, please post there instead of creating a new thread about the same topic. Duplicate threads will be closed to keep the forums orderly and easy to navigate.
- Keep off-topic posts in the off-topic forum.
- Don’t start discussions about games that are not ours.
- Do not cross-link to other message boards or websites unless approved by a moderator.

- Do not encourage users to break terms of service. This includes giving information about how to find scripts, exploits, or cheats, as well as arranging to buy or sell accounts or virtual goods.

Rule 5: Respect the audience
Think about who you're talking to. Users may be as young as 13 on these message boards, and may be male or female, and from countries across the globe.
- Keep your language civil. Profanity is frowned on.
- Do not post Adult Material, inappropriate graphic sexual content in any format, or links to sexually explicit sites.
- Do not post graphic images or explicit descriptions of violent acts.
- Do not use an avatar or signature that could offend other users. They have to look at it a lot.

Rule 6: Respect privacy

- Do not post private communication between customer support, members, moderators, or administrators on these forums, or anywhere else. (This include support ticket responses)

- Do not post Facebook information about other forum users.
- Do not post any private information about other users.
- Do not post in-game information in an attempt to have other players attack your target. Be careful to not cross the line into bullying.

Rule 7: Do not spam
- Do not post repeatedly about the same topic.
- Do not spam users on the forums or through private messages.
- Do not start a thread without actual purpose.
- Do not start a thread about a news story or article unless you make it clear what the story is about, and offer your own opinion to start a discussion.

Rule 8: Respect your account
- Do not share your account information with other individuals. You will be held responsible for any rules violations that occur under your account.
- Do not create new accounts or use other tricks to avoid suspensions or bans.
- Do not create �sock puppet’ accounts – multiple accounts created just so that you can agree with yourself and make it seem like your ideas have more support than they do.
- Never include your e-mail address or any other personal information in posts.

Rule 9: Respect the Moderators
- Do not post using the color red. This color is reserved for moderators.
- Do not impersonate moderators. Do not claim to speak for the moderators.

Rule 10: Respect the decisions of the moderators
- The moderation teams reserves the right to warn, suspend, or permanently ban users judged to be acting against the spirit of the rules, even if the user is following the letter of the rules.
- Do not argue with moderators about moderator decisions. You can disagree with a moderator’s opinions, just like any other poster, but when they post moderator actions in red text, it is considered final.
- Moderators have no access to your game account. If you have an issue you must contact customer service.

Generally, BE NICE. There is nothing wrong with being nice to each other.

    Re: Freedom of Speech!

    Think because of the "team" aspect of the game that a full total ban permanently may be a bit harsh..

    Perhaps pa is able to
    1) restrict chat to empire and eve chat..
    2) restrict further to just empire
    3) total ban

    Coupled with time frames each step would be active.. Could rehabilitate players into having kosher language

    Just a thought pa appreciate it if taken seriously ty

That will go really far in court. Panda. Your a hipocritical Sock loving drone. I've accepted that. Have you two taken my real name and city off your site yet? Is it completely gone from these forums as well? See that in itself puts my life at great risk because of psychopathic stalkers who have nothing better to do then plan my demise. Keep spying bro. Keep being a two faced creep. You are doing a fantastic job at it, and thanks for your two cents. Sorry. I think it just fell down the sewer.
      If by months you mean two weeks then sure, blue my remarks were not in any form an attack at you, but sincerely trying to give others a better understanding of the situation at hand. I honestly don't see where i'm being a hypocrite in this. I acknowledged as to why you were chat banned. I honestly don't know why every remark someone makes that goes against your thought process is taken as a trash-talking statement. I'm sorry i try to help you and others and all you can do is try and flame me. When you said you wanted a forum war in kik, i honestly laughed. I don't need your drama of a "forum-war" with me. And as for harassment, since you seem so keen on defending it. How'd that apology to Airmid go..... Oh i forgot the facebook account was deleted because she was harassed, and is no longer on the forums anymore either..... As well you brought up psychopathic tendencies and stalking people, interesting what happened to Airmid in real life and all....... Oh well i tried to stay neutral with you after you took shots at me the first time.

        I hear Sock was harassing Airmid far more then I. In fact, I heard that's the reason she deleted her Facebook account. All I was "harassing" airmid to do was catch cheaters. If you think I harassed her real life Facebook then please take a look at our one sided conversation and tell me where I did so... image.jpg I have been keeping quiet about you and even protected you, but once I took offence to Sock's Team Blue pic: image.jpg you went crazy and unleashed in the forums about me.

          Re: Freedom of Speech!

          The real discussion here is chat bans and why was it necessary to go from 0 to 100...

          Half the time it's instigated by the same people who report. I know some stuff blue said or did was uncalled for but did you guys also take into account that he was instigated for some of it at least?

                  Thank you very much. I hope that PA begins to realize how much this chat ban has impacted my ability to play. Its nearly impossible. Much appreciated.

                    I am helping blue with the empire he currently holds the star for, and I must say it isn't the easiest thing to do to help him run it and relay messages while leading eve. No it doesn't bug me, but eventually it will. And I'm sure it seems weird to the new recruits (that don't know him or the situation), to get relayed messages from their empire boss. Like honestly how many of you would want to show respect to a boss that has been banned from chat?! I know if I didn't already know blue, I wouldn't wanna be around a boss that's banned from chat. Makes the empire look bad in my eyes.
                    Almost the same reason the suspended players got kicked from the empires they were in because it looked bad on their empire. So not only is this ban affecting blue but the empire that he is the boss of.

                      Also the 9 other empires I have had no choice but to leave as I felt unknown or unable to correspond with. It has taken it's toll. I have learned my lesson. I have not even cussed in these forums once in a month. That should speak volumes. I am trying my best to correct my mistakes, and all I ask is for one last chance PA. I feel I have done alot for your company and I dont feel I have ever gotten the credit I feel I deserve. That being said, I once again admit I made many mistakes. I am only human. I am not a bad person. I just have a sharp tongue and big kahunas. I will do my best to never let my anger speak for me again. You have my promise. Thank you for taking the time to read these words, and I hope one day soon, you will find it in your hearts to help my cause.

                        I had one encounter with blue. He was with ES at the time. We were ranked nowhere near them. They of course smashed us. In war chat he was very friendly and funny. It made the loss not sting as bad. Banning his chat permanently is not only making his game play not as fun, but also the players that enjoyed his chat. There seems to be a lot of those people. The fact that he's stuck with you and is still spending his money should be enough.

                          Just because I may be a higher level then someone, or my empire is more stacked then anothers, does not mean I am better then you or my empire is better then yours. I like to give everyone a fair chance and if they treat me with respect, I will treat you back with respect. Dayna, you seemed to take the war like a champ as did your team and for that, even if you may have lost, in my eyes you and your empire are champions. Thank you for your kind words. They mean alot.
