**OFFICIAL Rules and good crap to know **

**PLEASE READ** Updated Rules

I’m sure some of you have noticed that the rules are being enforced now in ST. The rules are pretty much the same, they are just being enforced strictly due the recent atmosphere in ST. ALL of PBN’s rules apply. I will go over the ones that are resulting in the most bannings though. Some of these may be ST specific. Please check out PBN’s rules, as well as the other Small Talk rules thread when you are done reading this.

SPELLING AND GRAMMAR - This is not an IM convo. Make an effort to spell words correctly, use paragraphs, and use standard English. We aren't grammar Nazi's and we do not expect each post to be a college thesis, but we do require some level of intelligence in the discourse. Don't make posts to correct someone's grammar or spelling - if you can't understand them, let it slide. If the post is nearing nonsensical, report it, and a mod will look at it and judge its validity.

FLAMING – If you make a comment with the sole intent of hurting some ones feelings, starting a flame war, or just being mean, that is flaming. There is no exact definition of flaming. Context plays a big part in what is considered flaming and what isn’t. So, you may see instances where two different people said the same exact same thing, and one is considered to be flaming and the other isn’t. It basically falls upon the staff to decide what is considered a flame and what isn’t. Also, if you have a personal problem with a member, keep it in the PM’s or AIM. Don’t follow them around PBN starting arguments with them. That will get you banned as well.

SPAM – Posting things that have no purpose, no topic, or are just too dumb to be allowed on PBN can be considered spam. If you post random images, that is spam. If you make “IBC”, “tl;dr” or other posts of that nature, that is spam. Ipod links, outwar type games, and things of that nature are also considered spam. There is no clear definition of what is spam. So, it will once again fall upon the staff of PBN to decide what is considered spam and what isn’t. We want you guys to have fun. But, we also expect you to some intelligence when posting on PBN. A little common sense goes a long way. Threads like “have you ever beat off at school” will not be allowed, period. If your thread gets deleted DO NOT REMAKE IT. That will also get you banned. Posting "1st posts" type posts, spam. Posting "old" when someone posts a vid or pic is also spam. Believe it or not not everyone has seen ever piece of media on the internet. If you have seen it move on, don't post and start an argument. Excessive spacing is annoying. It will also be considered spam. The ORLY bird is also considered spam - we've had several people spam with this jpg, and if you post it, we will assume you're spamming as well (this goes for any "Oh Really?" type of pictures). Posting false information such as (and not limited to) "Screamer" in a thread without a screamer will also be considered spam. Posting screamers is also spam.

DISCRIMINATORY POSTS – There will be absolutely ZERO tolerance with posts of a racist/discriminatory nature. If you think there is even a small chance it may be seen as being so, it is best you not post it.

GRAPHIC/GORY THREADS - If you are going to post a vid or pic that some would consider graphic, please lable it as so in the title. Believe it or not, some people don't want to see that stuff and shouldn't have to.

PICTURES – If you post a picture that contains nudity, swear words, racist comments, or anything else that in any way breaks any of PBN or ST’s rules, you will be banned. Also, if you post a pic of yourself or a loved one, expect negative comments. I won’t allow flaming, but people are allowed to comment on pictures you post. If you can’t take it, don’t post it.

GDT’s & CHAT THREADS – PBN isn’t a chat room. If you have a topic you would like to discuss then make a thread about it. Don’t make general discussion threads, late night threads, or any other thread to be used as a chat room.

VIDEO FORUM – We have a video forum. If you want to post a thread about a video, use this forum. Due to numerous video threads, the first offense will result in a ban.


CLUBS – No clubs. They aren't productive, and multiply quickly. No one wants to sift through 4 pages of club threads to get to ST.


REVENGE THREADS – We're not going to help you get revenge on someone. If you can't come up with ideas on your on, you don't have the mental capacity to follow through any of the suggested ideas.

THINK BEFORE YOU POST!!!

All we ask is for you all to try to get along, and help keep Small Talk somewhat clean. The rules aren’t very hard to follow.

If you have a thread that got deleted, obviously a staff member thought it wasn’t appropriate. Just drop it and move on. If you get banned you can look in the “bannage log” to see why, and how long.

We greatly appreciate all members who try to help keep ST an enjoyable experience. If you see a post that may be questionable, please continue to report it. You have no idea how much it helps.

If you have any questions, the staff of PBN is always here to help.

PORN THREADS – If you instigate or provoke anyone to make a porn thread, or to post more pics once a porn thread is made...you will be perm banned right along with them.

I suggest you just get your look at the thread, and move on without posting.

CHAT THREADS - If you make a thread that says "Join this chat.. blah blah blah," you will be banned. This includes IRC, AIM, Stickam, or any other chat system outside of PBNation. This is because there is a long and consistent history of users gathering on AIM in order to spam PBN.

Picture/Macro/Video Websites - We can all access big-boys, collegehumor,MYSPACE etc by ourselves and we have, since Al Gore invented the internet. You will NEVER find anything on there someone in here hasn't seen. Please refrain from posting the links.



OK look, I'm not going to post ALL the links we don't want you to post, but really, if you think it's been posted in the last 20 years, DO NOT post it again. The intraweb is not that big. Yes, I know Darth Vader can read my mind, there's a man dressed like a chicken who will do what I tell him and savetoby is a hoax. DO NOT POST it again.

Reporting a post made easy......

When a post is reported in a certain forum, all the mods of that forum get an e-mail to the thread. If the thread is long, and has multiple pages, it can be hard to search through them all and find the post causing the problem.

In this picture, there is a number circled in the top right corner. Every post has one. Click this number, and the direct link to this post is displayed in your browser window (where you type in your www.whatever.com). Simply copy that link, and include it in your message when reporting a post.



This will help us manage certain posts, rather than just closing the whole thread when it doesn't need to be, because one bad apple can ruin it for the rest.

Also, reporting a post to say " oh it wasn't fair this person got banned for this or that..." is getting very old.

Yes, posting a picture with the N word is bannable, get over it.

AIM Chats

AIM chats haven't been allowed (in regular ST) because they usually spawn spam attacks et cetera.

Make a thread about an ST AIM chat, you'll be banned.

Parody Threads - Parodies aren't funny. One turns into 50 quite easily. Make a parody thread/post and you'll be PERM banned.

Wimp.com Links - Getting out of control. Same thing as YouTube. Do not post any unless it's EXTREMELY hilarious. If it's NOT funny, or it's old, ST will speak the truth, it will be closed/deleted. (most likely deleted)

Thanks.

Duplicate Threads - Do not post the same thread in OSST and ST. The thread in OSST will be deleted.

Unnecessary Spacing - Do not put large spaces between your posts. 5 lines max. It is very annoying to scroll through.














These large spaces will be considered spam and punished accordingly.

9/11 Conspiracy Threads - No more posting "Loose Change" or the Pentagon flash animation. Both have been proven to be false. If you would like to discuss them, there is a thread in the politics forum. Any posts of them from now on will be considered spam and dealt with accordingly.

Explosives threads - Do not ask how to make bombs. There are plenty of places on the internet that can tell you. This is not one of them. It is a liability for us to have that stuff on here since most of the users of ST are generally irresponsible minors.

Read This Right Now!

NO MORE THREADS ABOUT SPAMMERS. Yes, we see them. Yes, we delete 90% of their threads before they even have 1 view. Do not make threads about them. Just report the posts and go about your business.

That is all.

POSTING IN A PORN THREAD = BAN. If there is a porn thread, or porn post, report it. If you quote it, react to it, or reply to it, you will be banned. The easiest way to get rid of spammers is to ignore them. If you are incapable of ignoring a spam thread or post on your own, then I guess we have to add some incentive.

If you post after the porn, you will get banned. This was obviously not clear enough before, so im making it a little easier for you guys.

I dont care what you post, you better delete it within a matter of minutes. if i see it, you will be banned. And if i look at your deleted post and you are encouraging porn, you will be banned.

Race Related Comments and Threads

As current events always seem to impact ST directly many of you have noticed the flurry of race related threads and bannings of members. Let me clear up a few things for everyone.

1.If you post race related material of an offensive nature, EVEN if your or other members don’t think its raciest you will be banned.

2.You don’t decide what is racist or not racist. The staff does.

3.Reporting a post to moderator does not always result in a ban. Live with it.

4.You want to talk about your banning, do so in the talk to mods forum. ST is not the place for it.

Like all things in ST, the race topic will die down and we can get back to normal in here, what ever that is.

Snakes on a Plane

To begin with, this isn't the proper subforum for discussion regarding this movie. We all know its coming out, we all know it has retarded trailers, and now we all know it has a soundtrack. If you continue to post SOAP in ST, you will be banned.

kthx.

QUOTING LARGE POSTS - Do not quote excesively large posts unless you are making an equally large reply (this applies mostly to the politics forum). Do not quote a posts with tons of pictures in them/large pictures. If you must quote a large post, delete the parts you are not directly replying to. If you must quote with multiple pictures, either limit it to one small/medium sized pic (800x600 or less) or take out the / from the image tags so you can see the [img]http://whateverpicture.jpg[img] text only.

Violations will be treated as spam.

It's getting out of hand with all the medical/legal threads. There are like 5 active threads in ST right now asking for medical advice. There are no doctors in ST, and no lawyers either. Even if there WERE doctors and lawyers here, they wouldn't be able to diagnose your abdominal pain or get you out of jail over the internet. Therefore, from now on I will be closing all threads asking for medical or legal advice, on the grounds that if you have a serious enough problem to be seeking help, then you can get off your lazy *** and call the doctor or the lawyer.

That is all. You may now return to your regularly scheduled functional retardation.

The only official threads are those made and stuck by Mods. All others will be closed.

Spamming other forums

Alright, most of you don't remember the PBR/PBN spam wars. Well, let's say some of our members' trisomy 21 kicked in and they started spamming PBReview. We have... I don't even know how many members... but well over 200,000, so when we get even a small amount of them spamming, it's still a crap load to deal with.

Since we here at PBNation like to maintain a positive image in lieu of our population's maturity, we have banned for spam attacks on other forums planned on ours. We have banned other for spamming other forums, period.

Why?

Because within the internet community, the only logical thing to do is the illogical, and spam back, and in turn, cause more spam. It just makes work for me, and I'm way too lazy and abusive to do any real work. It's much easier to just ban the spammers.

Also, when you spam using Mega Moderator's names, they tend to get fairly pissed off and write the administration angry eMails. A quick IP log and search shows who the poster in on our forum, and yeah, I'll ban you like the ancient greeks banned heterosexuality.
