Rule #1: Illegal Content Is Illegal
Posting or linking to any illegal content is prohibited and will not be tolerated. This includes illegal software, bootlegged media or unlicensed streaming sites.
Rule #2: No direct advertising
Direct advertising for good, services, etc not related to Geek.Kon is strictly prohibited. If you mention something in passing is one thing, but if you post for the sole purpose of selling something, you are subject to immediate ban. No, seriously. We have macros sitting idle for this kind of thing, waiting to be used.
Rule #3: No Flaming
Please do not make personal attacks against fellow forum members or convention attendees, guests, vendors or workers. Constructive criticism and intelligent debates are always welcome, but flaming is not. Likewise, hating on anyone's race, religion, beliefs, ethnicity, sex or sexual orientation is Not Cool and may be grounds for warnings or banishment.
Rule #4: No Threats Of Violence
Threats perceived as serious will be taken seriously and you will be banned.
Rule #5: Say No To Necromancy
When searching through old posts, note the date of a thread. Do not revive irrelevant threads, particularly those more than a year old. You may inadvertently trigger a zombie outbreak, and you don't want that on your hands. Likewise, do not double-post to bump up a thread. You may edit your previous post to make quick changes or additions to something recent.
Rule #6: No Rule Six
We don't believe in the existence of Rule Six. Nothing to see here, Lookie Loos! Move along!
Rule #7: Keep It Cleanish
The Geek.Kon forums are rated PG, SFW and other acronyms that frown upon age-inappropriate content. Anything that should not be seen by children or our bosses must be linked offsite and indicated as such.
Rule #8: Don't Reveal Too Much
As much as we're all friends, remember that this is a public forum and anyone can see it. That includes Google. Never give out any personal information. If you do, don't blame us if anything happens.
Rule #9: Moderator Activity
To keep things orderly, site administrators reserve the right to move, lock or delete posts or threads. They may also issue warnings, temporary suspension of posting privileges, or outright banning. Normally, we will start with warnings and punish more severely with subsequent violations, but egregious offenses may demand instant wrath.
