EastBound's Community Discussion FAQ

Here you can find answers to questions about how the board works. Use the links or search box below to find your way around.

Can I advertise here?

Yes, but no spamming.

What counts as spamming?

ďSpam is flooding the Internet with many copies of the same message, in an attempt to force the message on people who would not otherwise choose to receive it. Most spam is commercial advertising, often for dubious products, get-rich-quick schemes, or quasi-legal services.Ē http://spam.abuse.net/overview/whatisspam.shtml

Can I include links in my signature?

Yes. The administration/moderate team reserves the right to delete any content that is deemed inappropriate and/or to penalize the user.

What counts as inappropriate?

Links to porn sites are not allowed. Graphic content (nudity, violence, gore) will be regulated under moderatorsí discretion. Racism will not be tolerated. Again, no spamming.

How big can my signature be?

It should not take up more than a third of the page vertically.

Can I double post?

Yes, but if you post the same thing twice, moderators may delete the second post.

What happens when I get warned?

After three warnings, you may receive an infraction point. You may be banned any time after you have received three infraction points. See "Infraction and Warning": http://www.eastbound88.com/showthread.php/716-Infraction-and-Warning

What are reputation points?

For every post or thread you make, you will gain a certain number of reputation points. Members can also receive (or deduct) reputation points from each other. All it shows is that you are a respected poster and a valuable member on our site. Moderators and special VIP members are selected based on the membersí reputation. See "User Reputation and Promotion System": http://www.eastbound88.com/showthread.php/105-User-Reputation-and-Promotion-System

What is a VIP member?

A VIP member has made more than 1,000 posts and is a poster of excellent repute. VIP privileges include increased pm storage and posting abilities, among others. Sometimes a retired moderator will receive honorary VIP status for his/her contributions to the forum.

How do I become a moderator?

If the admin/mod board decides that we need more moderators, members will be asked to moderate the forum or certain subsections as we see fit. Members can also petition to become moderators or to promote other members. To do so, pm the administrator.

Why arenít moderators/administrators responding to my pm or comments?

Depending on the time of the year, we may be a. partying in Cancun, b. studying for an exam, or c. just not online at the time. Be patient. A reply may take 1-2 days but we will get back to you.

After Iíve been banned, can I be un-banned?

It is possible. Email Yer for petitions and appeals using the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of the page. If a ban is deemed unjustified, the member will regain regular member status.

What is this AF I keep hearing about?

Our old planet, destroyed by trolls and spambots. ;(
