Reporting Posts

Post by Tetris on Tue Jun 21, 2011 1:35 pm

Below are many of the reported posts options and definitions. When you report a post please make sure that the post does violate a site rule or policy. Action will be taken by staff at their leisure. Decision of what action to take will rest solely on staff. Reporting a post does not guarantee any action will be committed. If you want to report a member for a violation that isn't specific with a post, please either use the contact form, PM staff, or start a thread in Site News and Feedback section.

Blackhat Activity
All blackhat activities are forbidden. Discussion of any kind on these topics will result in a warning for disallowed blackhat activity.


Infected Download or Link
Infecting users of ScriptKiddie by providing infected downloads or links. Infected meaning bound to a virus, trojan, malware, or backdoor.

Flaming
Posting insults directed to: a user, multiple users, threads, or sections. Flaming also falls under off topic or low quality post and users may receive multiple warnings.

Low Quality
Posts that add nothing to the thread, are non-supportive, and are generally incoherent. Quoting posts without adding to them, avoiding character requirements in a post, and anything /b/ related are considered low-quality. Short posts like "thanks", "lol", "bump" or "msg2short" are low quality. Low Quality determination is at the discretion of the staff member who receives the report.

Unrelated or Off Topic Posting
Posts should always be part of the original discussion posted by the thread creator.

Reputation Abuse

* Asking For Rep
* Offering Rep
* Inciting a "Rep Riot"

Are all against the rules.

Wrong Forum
More commonly referred to as "Wrong Section" this only applies to threads and therefore only the OP should be reported. Wrong forum is exactly as it sounds, a post has been created in the wrong section of the site and belongs some where else. This is normally linked to cross posting.

Double Posting
Double posting is when a member posts a message and then posts again in the thread before another member replies. Result will be two messages in a row by the same member.

Cross Posting
This is creating the same thread in more than one place. If you incorrectly post a thread in the wrong forum, please report the post and staff should move it for you without penalty.

Leeched Post
Leeching is when information is taken from one place and posted somewhere else without giving any credit. This can refer to content posted elsewhere on AIO or if we find content from AIOForums posted at another site. Leechers may have their account closed. This activity won't be tolerated.

Advertising
Posting an outgoing link to any forum that is in direct competition with AIOForums. Avoid other sites, etc. Some sites may be advertised with the approval of Admin PM him with the link and asking where you can put/post it.

Personal Data
No phone numbers, addresses, names, emails or contact information of any kind about anyone other than yourself.

Adult Image
Nudity, Goatse, Obscenity, Vulgarity, or anything else not appropriate for the eyes of anyone under the age of 18.

Signitures
Don't let your signiture be to big. We don't have a certain signiture limit. Use common sense, if you could tell its to big than don't use it.

Other
Everything else that you feel doesn't fit in, and a mod should look at. Don't be stupid with this one.
