    Member Details Update and Procedures

    Post  Silent Scope on Wed Jun 29, 2011 5:54 am

    Member Details Update and Procedures

    In light of the recent events of the massive intake of new members, the administration will now be placing measures to help enforce this rule that seemed to have lost its importance with a lot of the members here:

    - Everyone is required to have an avatar, their real age and real location visible on their profile

    It's a standard fare within all members here. Disclosing location and age especially can help to identify new recruits for wars and help us to be able to guide you through any queries relating to places and such. Avatars allow for the forum in itself to look spiffy and organised with everyone keeping to their own unique identity.

    That said, these new measures will aim to improve quality across the forum:

    • All new members must comply to the rule within two weeks of making their first post. If after two weeks that they do not comply completely to the rule after their next post, a suspension may be sanctioned.

    • All existing members must comply to the rule within two weeks of this notice. If after two weeks that they do not comply completely to the rule after the next post, a suspension may be sanctioned.

    The duration of the suspension will depend, to the sole discretion of the administrator, on how much the profile is non-compliant with the rule as well as any other rules broken by the member.

    Avatars must not be offensive in nature, and may be changed by administrators at sole discretion.

    The minimum standard of information required is as follows:

    • Major city

    OR

    • Nearby suburb/town, State

    OR (if overseas)

    • Nearby town, Country

    Which is to say at the very least that it's not too much to ask for.

    Thank you for your co-operation,

    - Silent Scope

    In case you're curious about my WTB requests or my Triple Shot products.

    Don't worry, I've compiled a list so far of us VIC crew here, yo.

    Also, can you people start putting titles in PMs? I can't be bothered trying to figure out what the subject and context is within a PM.

    Good initiative SS.

    Just to clarify for us non-metro people, do we need to list our town and state - or town, nearby town/region, and state? I assume the second format is more directed at Suburbs around/within metro areas, but just want to double-check. I've seen people banned for less (not by yourself though )

    ie:

    Blackwater, Queensland.

    OR

    Blackwater, Central Highlands, Queensland.

    Cheers,

    I won't go anal, just list your nearby town with state and you should be fine.

    As for people in the metro area just listing your major city is sufficient, though it does look better if people do refer to their suburb and state format (like I have).

    Finally! Location is the biggest issue for me, or for everybody else. Just saying you're in Brisbane is enuogh to know there are people in that 'major city'. It's practically impossible to find someone who lives in such a big area.

    If you are from Brisbane and have heard of the b105 fugitive. You will know that it was REALLY hard to find him with the clues he dropped.

    I can see why people don't want to do their age because of 'internet' predators. However, it is nice to know since that way you know what the 'nerf war' day will be like.

    Can we add a maximum size to the avatars (preferably in the code) as I do recall more than once seeing a user with an avatar that went into their posts (and the posts below it), while amusing it is quite distracting and in some cases counterproductive to the efficiency of the forum.

    How that particular member was able to circumvent the size restrictions is beyond me; if anyone wishes to do so I welcome them to try, and we'll see how I'll respond to that.

    lololol

    This is a reminder for every member to comply with the rules before further action is taken. Thank you.
