    TheRealSOCOM Forum Rules

    SPAMMING/ADVERTISING

    Do not spam, advertise, or solicit on these forums. (publicly or privately) If you have a website, project, or an event you are interested in promoting/advertising, then contact a member of our staff for clearance. Violators will be banned immediately.

    GOLDEN RULE

    Treat others how you want to be treated. Heated discussions and off topic derailments will be tolerated within reason, but do not take our generosity for granted or else Chuck Norris and his ban hammer will pay you a visit.

    PORNOGRAPHY & OBSCENE CONTENT

    Please be careful about what you post. This site is aimed at an 18+ crowd, but this does not mean we want a link to your favorite porn video or pictures. NO NUDITY ALLOWED. Please keep all "adult content" within reason and of good taste. Some foul language in content from time to time is acceptable (I'm the Juggernaut, Bitch!), but please use your better judgement when posting.

    RELIGION, POLITICS, WARS & VIOLENCE

    Threads and posts on highly contested subjects such as, but not limited to; gun control, violence, religion, conspiracy theories, politics and wars will be prohibited due to the nature of the subject. In the past such subjects were allowed and permitted under moderator discretion. It has come to our notice that these threads can become overly divisive and distract from the purpose of this site. However, threads and posts discussing real world weaponry, personal collections and weapon videos will still be permitted as long as the discussion remains civil. This rule will be enforced with extreme prejudice.

    IMPERSONATING OTHER ENTITIES

    Do not create forum names and accounts that impersonate a real life entity, or another forum user, or post content on behalf of someone else leveraging a real life entity other than yourself. Examples include but are not limited to: game developers, gaming professionals, politicians, athletes, claiming you are a real life chicken that can type, actors/actresses, and other well known entities/brands within the gaming community. Another example would be if you aren't SukMyTurban aka BlackWido88, then do not replicate his username/handle/brand in any form or fashion by creating an account in his likeness or by posting content on his behalf. Any gray areas not covered above, or any other related incidents of this matter will be resolved by the discretion of the TRS staff on an individual basis.

    SIGNATURES

    Signature size is limited to 500x200 pixels and Youtube videos will no longer be allowed as signatures in the interest of keeping page loading times down. Links to personal YouTube pages will still be permitted and the other content rules apply to signatures as well.

    DISCRETION

    All rules will be regulated and enforced by our admins and moderators. Any gray areas not covered will be addressed under our discretion. If you have any questions about these rules, or any other issues in general, please contact one of our staff members by following the link below:

    In light of the drama revolving around those sort of topics in the last several months, I would like to redirect everyone's attention to the section on Religion, Politics, War, and Violence. This is a gaming site and having discussions/arguments erupt that echo those issues that exist in the real world is simply not appropriate for this place and we are no longer going to tolerate the accusation/defense back and forth that has plagued us recently. This includes the topics of race, sex, or anything else that reflects the war around the whole PC topic that infects every other aspect of our lives. Leave your ideologies at the door please

    Also please pay attention to our Golden Rule, particularly the "within reason" part. From now on discipline for negative/drama causing derailments will include not only the people who initiate those derailments but also those who use that initiation as justification to be outside of the rules themselves. "They started it" will not longer be tolerated as a valid excuse. If you see something you think is really out of bounds, hit the report button and walk away or risk getting in trouble yourself.

    It's not okay to break or bend the rules just because one of the staff haven't had the chance to address someone who is also doing that. If you have a specific question as to what is or isn't okay regarding these rules, please contact me through a private message to get clarification.
