      Welcome!   03/05/2016

      Welcome, everyone, to the new 910CMX Community Forums. I'm still working on getting them running, so things may change.  If you're a 910 Comic creator and need your forum recreated, let me know and I'll get on it right away.  I'll do my best to make this new place as fun as the last one!

Spoilers

We don't want people to consider this place as a hazard zone where upcoming forms of entertainment will be spoiled. So, there are a couple of rules that need to be established.

First and foremost, if you somehow get your hands on something months, weeks, or even a few days before something is released DO NOT post spoilers. Even if you highlight these spoilers beforehand to warn people they will not be tolerated until the product in question has been officially released.

Secondly, once something is released, please do highlight spoilers before they can be visible to people. (note: I'm going to make a topic in the Mod Forum and see if we can all agree on how old something has to be before spoiler warnings aren't needed and will edit this post to reflect that later)

Signature Rules

There's been a bit of hubbub about the size of signatures here in the forum. 

After a lot of discussion between Admins and Moderators, the following restrictions need to be put on signatures.

  1. Signatures may be no larger than 700px wide by 300px high.
  2. The total number of graphics in a signature may not exceed 300kb.


The primary reason for this was someone who had an overly large graphic in a sig (I had to scroll down four times to see the whole thing... and my resolution is 1280x854). Also, we have received a number of complains from people on slow connections. Overly large graphics and animated GIFs can take a lot of bandwidth. And speaking as one of those with a slow connection, it takes a long while to load up a page with that. 

Moderators will give a friendly warning if a signature exceeds these restrictions. I know that everyone will understand and help us out by reducing down the size of their sigs.

Copycat Accounts

In the old Community, we had a situation of someone who created a "copycat" account to impersonate another forum member.

As such, there are to be NO "copycat" or "impersonating" accounts.

Period.

Unlike most of the other stuff, this is not a "three strike" situation. If you are found to have a "copycat" account, you will receive one warning. And this warning is simply so you can create a new account. The other will be deleted.

If you attempt to use a "copycat" account to pass yourself off as another forum member, you will be banned from the community.

That being said, I also wanted to talk about duplicate accounts. My personal feeling is that nobody needs more than one account. If you are going to post something, take ownership of it. However, there will be times where selected people will be allowed to have more than one account. 

As of now, if you wish to have more than one account, please PM an Administrator (Robin, Lilly, or Myself -- not Anne. She has enough to do already!) for approval. 

Any duplicate accounts currently existing will be "grandfathered" in. However, any further duplicate accounts that are not approved will be deleted. If the account -- or any subsequent accounts -- are recreated, the IP will be banned.

  1. Please take a moment to review these rules detailed below. If you agree with them and wish to proceed with the registration, simply click the "Register" button below. To cancel this registration, simply hit the 'back' button on your browser.
  2. Please remember that we are not responsible for any messages posted. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message.
  3. The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of this community. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately by email. We have the ability to remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary.
  4. You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this bulletin board to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise violative of any law.
  5. You agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or by this bulletin board.
  6. Profanity is not allowed. Period. If you use any profanity, you will be warned, possibly suspended or even banned from the forum for a period of time to be determined by the administrators.
  7. No posting spoilers. Whether it be to upcoming comics, the donation meter animations, or whatever. People work hard to give you this entertainment. Anyone who breaks this rule will be warned, possibly suspended or even banned from the forum for a period of time to be determined by the administrators.
  8. No blocking of Private Messages from Administrators or Moderators. We do attempt to keep a lot of the negative business that always comes with running a forum private. If you are found to be blocking PMs, you will be given one week to unblock the Administrator or Moderator before action may be taken. If you are receiving PMs you feel are problematic from an Admin or Moderator, contact one of the other Administrators and they will handle the issue.
  9. There are certain hot topics -- specifically, religion and politics -- that, while not specifically banned, are discouraged because of how quickly they have deteriorated into flame wars. These topics are not to be taken lightly.  They will occur.  However, we do reserve the right to shut down a topic without warning if the embers of the flames on them begin to get too hot.  We also reserve the right for Moderators of specific comic forums to be stricter on the subjects than the general 910 Community is.

To help enforce these rules, we have a warning system in place. Administrators and moderators both can assign a warning for your behavior.
