The New Madden Forum Rules (Please Read Before Posting)

With the influx of new users recently, and the appreciated interaction of the Madden development team, the moderating team at OS, headed by yours truly, will be instituting a new set of rules, specifically to this forum. With the trouble we have had in the past, we don't wish to see any information that is being shared or collected in regards to the Madden series to be muddled in a sea of useless and unreadable posts. That being said, here are the new rules that EVERY poster must abide by, and the new punishment system that will be put into place for breaking them.

RULES

- No outright bashing any developer, moderator, or other poster. If you have a problem with someone in the forum, PM a mod. Disagreeing with an opinion, again constructively, is alright. The very first time you personally insult another poster, it will count as an offense, or infraction as we like to call it.

- No 2k vs Madden wars. You can be constructive with your criticism, even compare a feature from one game to another to make a point. But if you turn it into a flame or bash war, *see punishment*

- Trolling. This is stating the same thing over and over in multiple threads. "Beating a dead horse" is also covered in this. This also boils down to making constructive criticism in regards to what you are speaking about, and once you have, let it go. Also covered in this blindly defending your point, positive or negative, in a negative manner.

- No "Hey Ian!" threads. If any developer sees a thread they can comment on, they will do it on their own.

PUNISHMENTS

First Offense - Red Card infraction. If you already have a red card FROM ANYWHERE ELSE ON THESE BOARDS that is still active, you will be automatically moved to Second Offense.

Second Offense - One month ban from the Madden boards. Your posting rights will be taken away from the Madden forum for one month, in which time it will be your responsibility to PM a moderator to get the ban lifted.

Third Offense - Permanent banning from the Operation Sports forums.


I will be leaving this thread open for discussion, but as far as I am concerned, these rules are very fair. Any other suggestions will be taken, but these rules will not be lightened in any way.

Thank you,
Chris Gunter

Seems reasonable to me.

Personally...I like the fact that members are held accountable for how and what they post here at OS.
