Board Rules

- Before creating a post concerning StealthBot, browse StealthBot's Wiki, read any and all of the recent announcements and stickied threads and use the forum's search feature to see if your topic has already been posted by someone else. Topics which have already been covered will be removed from the forum and may result in further consequences.

- Spamming is not permitted unless otherwise specified within the forum's rules. This includes, but is not limited to:
  • posting topics in inappropriate forums
  • posting topics in multiple forums
  • posting irrelevant or pointless information in serious boards, in particular the Technical Support board
  • posting unsolicited advertisements
  • bumping old threads
  • thread himanlove69ing
  • double posting
  • posting excessive caps
  • misuse of large or colored text
  • reposting a trashed and/or deleted thread
- Flaming is not permitted. If someone is wrong about something, don't shoot them down, simply correct them and link them to something so they can learn.
- Pornography, warez, or any other illegal transactions may not be discussed, linked to, put in avatars, or put in signatures. This includes the discussion of illegally obtained CD-keys. The hard-working employees, in particular the development staff, at Blizzard Entertainment deserve your money.

- There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender-based insults or any other personal discriminations. Please report to a moderator or administrator if you have been insulted or discriminated-against and would like action taken.

- If you have an issue with another member of the forum, including moderators, do not post publicly about it; rather, bring your issue to an administrator or directly to Stealth by PM or e-mail. Please be sure to link posts and forward any PMs related to your complaint to the administrator to which you are addressing your complaint.

- Users may not dispute or discuss a moderator's action(s) publicly unless given direct permission to do so from either the moderator in question or a member of the administrative staff. Any and all complaints directed at a moderator must first address the moderator in question via personal messaging.

- If you are not happy with a moderator's decision, you may appeal your position to a forum Administrator. The forum admin will make or change any and/or all final decisions. Finally, you may appeal directly by PM to Stealth who will render a final decision. He very rarely overturns the decisions of the administrative staff, but he'll hear your case.

- One account per member. If a member is found to have more than one account, that member may have any and/or all of his/her accounts permanently banned from the forum.

- These rules are subject to change. Those who disobey the aforementioned rules will meet with one or more of the following consequences, chosen by the acting moderator:
-- warning increase
-- suspension
-- permanent expulsion

Those who earn a 100% warning level will automatically have their cumulative post counts reset and will be suspended for three weeks. One warning level will be removed every 30 days following a period in which no subsequent warning adjustments occur.
