    [OFFICIAL] Soshi9Sone General Rules

    Post by Hwang Taeyoung on Sun Dec 09, 2012 4:43 pm

    Soshi9Sone General Rules

    Do Remember these few rules while you're at Soshi9Sone
    It's really quite common and general.
    Please respect each other while you're here
    Here comes the Rules


    01. Do not post "offensive" posts, links or images.
    Do not post anything which is offensive, hateful, racist, sexist, discriminatory, obscene, vulgar or in violation of local or international laws.

    02. No racism, bashing, bandwaggoning, hates, sexism or insults.
    All of these cause too many problems and are just not worth it. People can take offence by things you say even when you don't necessarily mean it and although the shoutbox can be more off-topic than elsewhere, it should still be somewhere where people are happy to post without being attacked or insulted by other members.

    03. Refrain from becoming too off-topic in lounge threads.
    When someone creates a thread in the lounge, they generally have a good reason for doing so - perhaps they want to see the opinions of other members in the forum. If people post in this thread and within a few posts the thread is completely off-topic, discussing something else, it can be very annoying for the original thread starter. Please try to keep threads as on-topic as possible. If you don't have anything useful to say which relates directly to the thread, then don't bother posting.

    The moderators do not want to limit too much what types of thread you can create in the lounge. What we really want to focus on is people keeping the threads on-topic. Any off-topic post or thread that has become out of hand before any moderator intervention may be deleted or closed for this reason alone.

    04. Do not post just to try and provoke a response.
    Feel free to post in the forum, but don't post here just so that you can provoke a response from another member of the forums.

    If you do want to provoke, do not provoke in the thread. Send him a private message. Do you want everyone in the community to know that you two are fighting?

    05. Use the shoutbox!
    The shoutbox can be used for more off-topic "conversations". Don't feel that everything has to be posted in the lounge. But please do read and follow the shoutbox rules while chatting there. Click that to go to our Soshi9Sone Chatbox / Shoutbox!!

    06. Do Not Make Multiple Accounts
    If we ever find users with multiple accounts in this forum, they will be taken action immediately without any warning effectively.

    07. Signature and Avatar Rules
    a. Signature Size :: not reach more than 550x200 pixels and 150kb
    For a signature size, 400x130 or 400x140 is recommended.

    b. Avatar Size :: not reach more than 150x200 pixels and 150kb
    For an avatar size, 150x150 is recommended.

    08. Do not take anything out without Permission
    Please, respect the up-loader because they spent their every second uploading to the upload site to share with you some fantastic stuffs! If you want to share download links to other website, remember to credit him/her (Please refer rule 10).

    09. Credit Anything you took from Soshi9Sone
    First of all, do not post the wrong credits. We'll have every credits given.

    If you are posting on Facebook or any Social networks, please make sure the credit is visible to others.
    Example : Username@Soshi9Sone

    10. Spamming
    a. Do not poss less than 15 words (English).
    If you are posting Chinese, Korean or other language, is 10 words, but make sure you come up with an English translation.

    b. Do not post lame replies such as 'hahaha!' or 'oic', it'll be counted as a spam.

    c. Do not double/triple post.
    Do not post two or more times in a row. You might get an infraction in this case.
    If it was an error, just put down something like "sorry! This was an error!", mods or admins will help you delete your post.

    d. Do not necro-post.
    Do not simply post what others have posted, which means do not post replies which are identical to previous posts.

    e. If you want to reserve some space for your thread, you can do it by using this term [Reserve]. This will most likely be effective in artwork thread. Doing this in other sections will be checked throughoutly.

    11. Do not hotlink
    Please do not get any links from any media upload sites and link in Soshi9Sone. To prevent any troubles, prepare a media upload sites for yourself or use the Soshi9Sone media/image uploader.

    These are the examples of a media upload site:

    Do not advertise any fan sites, gaming services, products, illegal services through Soshi9Sone. Do not advertise through any means possible - Avatars, Signatures, Shoutbox, Private Message, Threads and Posts. Soshi9Sone is a forum where Girls' Generation Fans gather, not a place to do business. Projects done by Soshi9Sone staff is an exception.

    14.Do not post topic like > ''Unseen Pictures''.
    It is really unusual for a Girls' Generation Fan to see those topics. We will take immediate actions like topic lock and even deletion of topic without any warnings.

    To maintain the discipline in all times, this rule is to prevent users from making post which are not related to the specific thread.

    16. Administrator Impersonation
    We seriously do not want to see any user impersonate one of the staff of Soshi9Sone. This is result in a permanent ban for any users.

    To specify if he/she is a part of Soshi9Sone administration, there will be labels like Founder, Administrator, Global Moderator, Moderator, Designer, Tech Admin and Translator title given. If you ever found any user impersonating, please report it to any staff of Soshi9Sone.

    17. Introduction Rule
    There are not any kind of rules in any forum but due to the amount of users and the amount of Introduction threads (topics) in the Introduction section, we decided to come up with a Introduction Rule.

    After registration, everyone is to make a thread in the Introduction Area. If you post something without having the first post in the Introduction Area, you'll get infractions every time you post something.

    Well the real thing is, we still don't know any of you. To have a closer, better community, you should at least introduce yourself to the community.

    18. Make sure to follow all rules that are posted within the sub-forums.

    19. For more information, please contact any Soshi9Sone forums staff or review the Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) section.
