    Rules:


    So1 EDIT: This site's validation system runs almost Nerfhaven-style, except you only need to wait one week or less. So, you will not be able to post here unless me or another Admin validates your account. This is easy, of course, if you are not a spammer.


    Use capitalization and punctuation correctly. Also, grammar is greatly appreciated

    Try to avoid double Posting.

    Don't Necro (Reviving old topic).

    Don't post in a topic if you don't have anything significant to add.

    No MSN/AIM speak EG: LOL, OMG etc etc.

    So1 edit: Also, avoid "leet speak".

    Search before you post. The hell, go on nerfhaven and find a topic.

    If you are a bit off the topic in the topic clearly write: OFF TOPIC:


    Be friendly. There is no such thing as a stupid question. But there is a thing as a stupid answer .

    And please no pr0n links.

    Apart from that, Have fun, because this site exists because of Nerf, not the other way around.

    Lastly, don't talk about s-n-i-p-i-n-g in Nerf. It's impossible.

    Another thing. I know this is elementary, but do not spam. Your account will be automatically banned.

    -Speed and So1

    Very good start to the rules, and more may be added along the way.

    Also, I will see to it that the title of this is in a prominent color so it pops out on the front page.

    Also, I made you a moderator. Hurray.

    I understand the need for strict rules on an online forum, but in order for a site to be successful, you need to ease into them. I doubt Nerfhaven began the way it is today. You may need to be a little more lenient as far as rules go, until you get more members.

    Say a nerfer with poor grammar shows up, and sees all the rules. He/she is flamed and goes to another site (NerfHQ). At NerfHQ he/she will have a larger member database with less rules to annoy him/her. Not many people are interested in joining a site with all the rules(con) with very little original activity(pros).

    If the grammar rules were not a must but more of a suggestion it would seem a little less strict. More members would join, and once you sustain a high constant active user base, you may implement all the rules that you see fit.

    I'm not telling you how to run your site at all. If I'm out of line here, I apologize. Just a friendly suggestion, to help things get started around here.

    You know what? You're very correct. It seems that now that I look back on this list, it appears very harsh, and makes this site look very controllling. Even the title of the thread makes this site look overpowering. Completely not the style I was aiming for here. I will make it one of my best efforts to revise this list in the following week so it may attract more members rather than repel them.

    Title changed, and all harsh-sounding rules have been mase to be simplistic and more lenient.

    I agree that we should be lenient (sp?) and flexible with the rules at first. The less people in a group, the less problems occur, and therefore less rules are needed. Our rules should change with the amount of members on this site.
