Forum Rules

antgsm forum is implementing WARNING method as a tool for orderliness and standards as to how members will behave and deal with among members.

Each warning is equivalent to 1 point and increments the number each time members were given infraction when they misbehave or violate forum rules. Each warning expires in one month but if your warning points totaled 10 points in one month time, member's account will be disabled for one (1) month.

Take note that infraction is not a form of punishment but rather a corrective reminder to guide members towards proper behavior.


SECTION 1. GOOD MANNER AND RIGHT CONDUCT

RESPECT each and every member as well as the antgsm forum Leaders and the forum itself. Be HELPFUL and COURTEOUS always. Avoid flaming, trolling, bashing and insulting words that might result to quarrel among members. Do not create threads or reply post that might incite arguments and misunderstanding. Do not use words that contain rude, impertinent, impolite, vulgar, flaming, malicious, insult, oblique remark and the like. Do not use any words offensive to someone. To influence it to be worst is an illicit act. Anyone who is found to be flaming or launching personal attacks against other members shall be subject to penalty. All threads/posts that incite quarrel will be deleted without notice. The antgsm forum is meant to provide a delightful experience for all.

Infraction Point: Depends on the gravity of offense and the offended party.

Super Moderators - 3 Months Ban
Admins | Site Owner | Forum – Deleted Account


SECTION 2. PROPER FORUM NETIQUETTE

2.2. MAKE AN APPROPRIATE THREAD TITLE - When starting a thread, please think of a title that will best fit or that will best describe the content or queries of your thread. Do not use rude, impertinent, impolite, vulgar words. Also avoid using unnecessary punctuations like series of question marks, exclamation points, special characters and the likes.

Infraction Points:

1st Offense - 1st Warning
2nd Offense - 2nd Warning
3rd Offense - Warning Point(s): 1 + Editing of Post


2.3. POST IN THE RIGHT SECTION - Start a thread on the right section and with the right content. Post your thread only ONCE. Multiple or repeated posting in order to simply increase forum post count is not allowed.

2.4. USE PROPER STYLE, PUNCTUATION and GRAMMAR - Avoid excessive use of neon colors, special fonts, characters, emoticons, smilies, and roller-coaster, sms, txt speak, jejemon style in posting. Limit the usage of all capital letter when posting, - especially when creating a new thread title, using all caps is the equivalent of "shouting" online - and isn't really necessary for entire posts. Use emoticons and other symbols to indicate tone. When posting in the forum, there is an absence of indicators that help one to interpret tone and the forum poster's intention. In the absence of valuable voice tone, body language, facial expressions and other social cues, emoticons and symbols (smiley face, or "*smile*") can help make tone and intention clear to other forum members.

2.5. STAY ON TOPIC - Do not "hijack" forum threads and avoid directing the thread away from the current line of conversation, particularly if the original poster is seeking an answer to a question.

Spamming takes many forms but includes replies like "Thanks", "Congrats", "Galing mo", "PM mo ako", "Pa Burger", "Nice Info", "Thanks for sharing", "Dagdag Kaalaman", "hehehe", "wahahahahha", etc. Mindless spamming will NOT be tolerated in antgsm. Any user found doing (such as multiple posts with no text, only smilies - for example) is likely to incur an infraction. Filling the boards with pointless or nonsensical posts to increase forum post count is not acceptable either and will not be tolerated. Remaking or complaining about a locked or deleted thread by creating a new thread is also considered as a spam. Also, SELLING and ADVERTISING OUTSIDE of the Sales Section is considered a spam.
