The Rune-X Official Rules

This is how it works here at Rune-X:
- Users will be given warnings when they have broken minor rules.
- Users will be given infractions if minor rules are constantly broken or when more serious rules have been broken.
- A user who receives 3 infractions will receive a temporary 14 day ban.
- Multiple temporary bans will lead to a permanent ban.
- Infractions expire after 1 month.

Users can also be banned immediately for breaking the most serious rules.

[size=15pt]Users will receive 1 warning for the following [/size]

(though infractions for repeated offenders, or if you do this because you know you will only get a warning):
- Multiple Posts: posting numerous times in a row
- Bumping: posting just to get a topic at the top of a forum, usually with just the word “bump”
- Gravedigging: posting in a topic that has not been posted in for over 2 weeks unless you are the owner of the topic and it is a selling or buying thread.
Scripter Clause: The above three rules do NOT apply in the SCAR (working scripts) section for script authors and coders ONLY.
- Spamming (in general): posting only a few words in a topic such as “lol ok” or something with little to no relevance to the topic; creating topic deemed useless by staff or one solely for the purpose of spamming
- Caps: posting in all caps
- Backseat Modding (mild): posting things like “lock this thread” - basically acting like a mod

[size=15pt]Users will receive 1 infraction for the following:[/size]

- Multiple warnings
- Misleading Title: making a thread’s title different from its content as to attract attention (i.e. title of “FREE ACCOUNT” with content about some random question, “READ THIS,” etc...)
- Flooding (mild): posting in many threads in a forum in a row
- Posting Multiple Topics: creating many threads about the same thing
- Badmouthing newbies: disrespecting newcomers simply because they are new
- Accusing someone of scamming: without proof (text logs DO NOT COUNT AS PROOF)
- Begging: asking for free RS items, RS accounts, etc...
- Infraction Complaints: making a topic asking about one’s infraction, whining, asking for infraction removal, etc... anywhere except the Dispute Forum
- Trying to sell something that is free: for example, Rune-X’s old autos or some free bot
- Oversized signature: Oversized signature: Maximum of 350 pixels in height including all quotes/text/pictures in it and a maximum of 550 pixels in width with all text/quotes/pictures. Any advertisements must be under size 4. Vouches in signatures are frowned upon, as they are basically useless unless they are from a highly known/trusted and/or staff member.
- Posting Prank Websites: posting links to rick roll, chocolate roll, etc...

[size=15pt]Users will receive 2 infractions for the following: [/size]
