The Great Escape Central forums are intended to provide a warm, friendly atmosphere for the www.GECentral.com community. In order to maintain order and a sense of community, all users should read and follow these conditions. By participating in the forum, users are affirming their willingness to comply with these terms. This memorandum has been created to provide you with information about what you can expect here, what is expected of you, and to answer some questions you may have in your use of The Great Escape Central forums.


RULES OF CONDUCT

1. Be respectful of others at all times.
The purpose of the forum is to provide a fun and friendly place to discuss The Great Escape. Occasionally, there will be conflicts that arise when people voice opinions. Be courteous when disagreeing with others. It is possible to disagree without being insulting.

2. Ranting is prohibited
A rant is a post which is long-winded, redundant and filled with angry, non-constructive comments. A free exchange of opinions is essential to building a strong sense of community, but rants are disruptive and incite flaming and trolling. Please post your comments in a concise, clear manner and avoid going off on rambling tangents.

3. Personal attacks are prohibited.
Commonly known as flaming, personal attacks are posts which are designed to personally berate or insult another. Text of this nature is not beneficial to the Great Escape Central community spirit and will not be tolerated. Keep posts of this nature off the forum, please, unless it is clearly a mutual exchange.

4. Trolling is prohibited.
Trolling is the word used to describe a post that is deliberately designed for the purpose of angering and insulting the members of the forum community. Posts of this nature are disruptive and do not convey a friendly attitude.

5. No posting of personal information
Please respect the privacy of other Great Escape Central members and do not give out information such as phone numbers and addresses.

6. Warnings and bans are not to be discussed on the forum.
Such matters shall remain private between the admin of the Great Escape Central Forums, and the user. Questions or comments concerning warnings and bans will be conveyed through e-mail or private messaging. Likewise, discussions regarding moderator actions are not permitted on the forum. If you have questions regarding a post or thread, please contact nyguy@gecentral.com

7. Immediate banning from the forum can result from any of the following: The posting of pornography; discriminatory remarks which are sexually explicit, harmful, threatening, abusive, defamatory, obscene, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive; excessive obscene or vulgar language; posts which discuss or illustrate illegal activity; providing links to sites that contain any of the aforementioned, or posts advertising or constant mentioning of our rival forums.

8. Spamming and bumping are prohibited.
Spam is considered to be repetitive posting of the same text again and again or nonsensical posts that have no substance and are often designed to annoy other forum users. Bumping posts in order to keep them near the top of the list is also prohibited. Posts of this nature are not conducive to community spirit and are unwelcome. Spamming also includes using your personal website in your signature on our forum.

9. Redundant threads will be deleted.
As a courtesy to others before beginning a new thread, please look to see if an active thread on that topic has already been established. If so, place your comments there instead. Multiple threads on the same subject clutter up the forum needlessly and many good posts may be lost. Keep discussions about one topic to one thread only.

10. Impersonating another forum user, moderator, administrator is strictly prohibited.
You are expressly forbidden from impersonating anyone else, including those named above, on the forums. This may be grounds for permanent suspension of your Great Escape Central Forum membership.

11. Avoid using profanity.
Using partial masking (such as asterisks or punctuation marks) to bypass the profanity filter is prohibited and will result in the same action as if the actual word had been typed.

12. Post constructively.
Negative feedback can be very useful, provided that it is presented in a civil, factual manner. Tell us what you don't like and why and how you feel it could be improved. Posts that are insulting and rude may be deleted, no matter how valid the ideas behind them may be.

13. Disputes which cannot be resolved between forum users and moderators may be arbitrated by the forum administrators. To discuss problems or concerns, please send an e-mail to: nyguy@gecentral.com
