  • Code of Conduct

    **WORK IN PROGRESS** This is a new forum that officially opened to the public on 9 September.

    Respect your fellow members of UNDEAD ROBOT by not violating the following rules:

    1. Posting derogatory comments of a racial, religious, or sexual nature.

    This includes your username, signature line, title and subject lines of threads.
    • Profanity is not allowed in the subject line of threads.
    • Site Staff and Moderators reserve the right to edit these items and to remove your ability to modify them in the future.
    2. Posting pictures* or links to images which contain pornography, nudity+, animal cruelty, racism, or sexism.

    Any images of violence which are extreme will be removed and may result in a warning or worse.
    • *Posts with images of violence or graphic gory items should contain a warning in the title. These types of images will not be tolerated if inserted at random in other discussions.
    • +Nudity includes any photo which contains genitalia, female nipples, sexual acts, or depictions thereof.
    • Detailed pornographic stories are also not allowed.
    3. Posting or linking to information on how to make illegal modifications to firearms or purchase illegal items.

    4. Posting comments or links in support of illegal activities including, but not limited to, threats against the life of any person, doing harm to a state or federal official, or advocating the overthrow of the government.

    5. Posting of someone else's personal contact information (home phone numbers, home addresses, unpublished e-mail addresses, and the like).

    This includes information obtained through WHOIS searches,etc. Also sharing any image of another member or their family, that the member did not share on this site first is forbidden. The last section is meant to protect a member's photo hosting accounts.

    6. Attacking or insulting a member in an effort to elicit a negative response.

    You have the right to disagree, but please do so in a respectful manner. This rule also includes posting disparaging remarks about a member's family.

    7. Posting topics or discussions that do the site or community harm.

    More specifically creating topics and or replies meant to disrupt the Site's day to day management, disrupt member's resources, or the ability of the Site to function normally. This can include but is not limited to posting overly large photos or .gif files, excessive emoticons, or the use of repetitive or overly long text strings. It can also be the posting of threads or replies, in which it appears that the sole purpose is to provoke other members, or to damage the image and/or reputation of the site.

    8. Posting repeat topics with similar or slightly varying titles.

    While it may seem to be funny, the "spamming" of the community in this manner results in problems for users and management. (Multiple topics on important issues or discussions are acceptable, this only applies to topics which waste resources for no other reason except personal enjoyment or humor.)

    9. Copyrighted Material must be respected.

    If you wish to share an article from another site, it's important that you attribute a link to the original site. We will initially issue warnings, but repeat violations will result in your removal from the site. While not a requirement, it is considered a courtesy that you only post a small excerpt of the original article here.

    10. Self Promotion

    Unless you're a member of the Phalanx Press Guild, you shouldn't be promoting your wares here in at Undead Robot. No crows. If you're an author and someone asks you a specific question about your work, you may of course reply in kind, but no direct links to purchase your work unless you negotiate a deal with the site owner/administrator.

    Other Prohibitions
    1. Using improper pictures as an avatar. Improper would be described as anything violating the rules set forth in this Code Of Conduct.
    2. Using any resource from this forum to store or distribute pornography, nude images, or illegal materials.
    3. Attempting to abuse or cause damage to the site or services by exploiting them. This includes the theft of bandwidth by using the photo server to link images for personal websites or high traffic websites.
