    ***Updated CF Site Rules*** Please Read

    It’s time that we update our site rules here at CycloneFanatic.com. I’m going to try to keep this as simple as possible. Please take a few minutes to go over this.

    #1 – Always be respectful – Essentially, don’t be a jerk. We aren’t telling you to not disagree or argue with another poster. After all, this is a message board. But please, do it in a respectful manner.

    #2 – This is a very large website. Our moderation team cannot see everything, all of the time. Just because you feel that another poster “got away” with something that you didn’t, it doesn’t matter. Sometimes things get missed. That’s the way it is.

    #3 – Keep it clean – No racist, sexist or inappropriate posts are allowed on CycloneFanatic.com. We want 10-year olds to be able to view CF. This is obviously a very subjective topic. We admit that. Our moderation team might think something is inappropriate that you as an individual do not.

    #4 – We realize that sometimes threads naturally will head off of what the original topic might have been. Please do your best to keep threads on topic though. Constant derailing threads is not allowed. We have a lot of visitors to the site who don’t post. They like to read the opinions of you Fanatics. This makes things much easier on them, from a site navigation standpoint.

    #5 – Absolutely no sharing of premium information from other message boards. We respect that those folks are trying to run a business. In no way do we want to interfere in that by leaking their premium information.

    #6 – No trolling, spamming, relentlessly promoting your own (or another) blog, etc. A lot of these again are obviously judgment calls that we reserve the right to make.

    #7 – No advertising. That’s how this site is funded. That's how we keep it free for you. If you post an advertisement for any sort of a product, it will be deleted immediately. However, we would love to help you grow your business. Shoot an e-mail to chris.m.will@gmail.com for more information.

    #8 – Do not publically call out our moderation team. What we are doing here is not an exact science. I’m going to use the magic words “judgment call” once again. A lot of times, it comes down to that. If you feel you’ve been wronged in any way, shoot one of our moderators or me a private message. We’ll go from there.

    #9 – Do not avoid our language filter. If you do, your post will be deleted.

    Final Thoughts

    In a dream world, this site would moderate itself. Do you know about the “Report Post” button that is always available to you here on CF?

    If you feel that a certain post is inappropriate, click on the red box with an X in it underneath a poster’s profile information. This way, the post is sent, with your reasoning, back to our moderation forum. We will address it at that time.

    That’s my goal. That someday, these judgment calls will diminish and you Fanatics will moderate each other primarily.

    But please, do not abuse the “Report Post” button for your own personal agenda.

    In the end, remember this. This is a fantastic website. Everybody involved with CF is very passionate about its future. Any and all decisions made on an administrative side are done so for the site’s best interest. Will we be wrong sometimes? Of course. Nobody is perfect. If I screw up, I vow to admit to it.

    Have an outstanding week and as always, go Cyclones!

    I have a question on the bolded part especially. If you are banned, you can't send any sort of communication with anyone on the site (including PMs). So, without having every mod's email addresses, it's kind of impossible to communicate with them.

    Could not agree more with this rule. In fact, everyone should visit my blog to read more about my take on this subject: www.BalkensSwingingPartyTime.com.

    They better be. The one at the bar without pants was epic. The apology was even more epic.
