Unique-Divas Board Rules & Guildlines



################################################IMPORTANT NOTICE###########################################

Okay so here is what it has come down to absolutely everyone getting punished for anything they do that violates the rules. So we are starting the new UD era we are going to make this forum enjoyable for everyone here to discuss topics and have their opinions and this can be accomplished tactfully and I'll describe what that means in a minute. So from this day forward we will start with these new rules and I'm going to break it down extremely simple so that there is no confusion on what violates the rules and what doesn't this is gonna be straight forward and simple so all can understand it. UD Staff have come to agreement this needs to be done we are not going to have this forum like in a brand new year, UD of 2011 is going to be so different. So here is the new policy and procedure.

########################################################################################################################################

Name calling/Derogatory Comments

Name calling to either members/members of staff or divas/superstars - No calling anyone sluts, whores, hoes, bitches, fuckers, mother fuckers etc.. I think everyone smart enough to figure out name calling I hope I don't have put down everything. These are also consider derogatory comments along with comments like person smells or needs a bath these aren't not going to tolerated these are warn-able offensives. So lets get an example if someone insert diva name here is a slut then need to be warned. If someone calls a member or a staff member a name they need to be warned so lets see any name calling needs to handled with warns along with the derogatory comments of some smells or needs a bath those are warn-able and the staff once they see these need to warn the offend no matter if friend or foe. This should be pretty simple to understand what is acceptable now and what is not if you are still confused by what is name calling or derogatory let me know.

###########################################################################################################################################

Baiting

Now this is a huge one that has never really been addressed and people seem to use "giving my opinion" card to get away with it will no more here it is you can give your opinion and participate in discussions and debate tactfully. So what is baiting To attack or torment, especially with persistent insults, criticism, or ridicule. To entice, especially by trickery or strategy (also consider gimmick posting), and to to tease. When members do this in topics to cause others to respond it is not tactful discussion or debate and it needs to be dealt with. So when a member brings up something in a discussion that will cause a member to react or if the member as already reacted the offender needs to warned and well as the reacting member. this way there is no favoritism on this forum with who gets warned.

The staff will enforce these rules and will warn anyone friend or not that violates the rules. They have the right to delete any post or warn anyone they feel that has violated these rules.

We want this place to me fun and exciting for everyone but, we are tired of bashing and crap that goes on here and it will NOT happen anymore we are dead serious on this 2009 is going to be a new era for UD we will enforce these rules and punish those that need to be punished. We want everyone to have their opinions and to be able to debate those however, everyone can do that tactfully on here and if not then you'll face the punishment. The new rules are clear and simply.
