People who are new to the forums should read this rules BEFORE they make a post:
Place your forum posts in the correct section.
Do Not use profane language.
Respect any and all staff decisions.
Do not advertise another server using our forums.
Do not try and fool staff.
Do not use somebody's post to place your own post in. MAKE YOUR OWN POST!
Do not create fake reports.
1. Do not use profane language on the forums.
When you are reporting a player report or a missing item/legendary, you may be angry and dissatisfied on what came across you. We at PPMC understand how you feel, but we will not tolerate any horrid language you may use in your post. We know you are angry, but do not let your rage get the best of you. If you use language, we won't even want to help you with your situation. This may include direct language in the post itself, or language used in the screenshots you provided in your post (if you did provide screenshots).
Breaking this rule will make us not want to help you. There have been cases where admins have denied help to people who use intolerable language. Trust me, if we see bad language, we won't want to help you. If you continue to become an issue we will distribute you a warning point and, if you continue to be a nuisance, a ban from the forums.
2. Place your posts in the correct section.
When you are placing your post it is important to place it in the correct section. This gives the admins an insight into what your issue is and how they can resolve it. If you were to post something missing in a "Player Reports" section, this may give them an idea that you were scammed out of something (the two topics combined).
Although no direct punishment will be given, the consequence will reflect more upon you. If you were to make a "Missing Item/Pixelmon" report in the "Off Topic", the admins may not want to look at it, and may tell you to post it in the right section. It is important you do this so you can receive the assistance you desire.
3. Respect any and all staff decisions.
All decisions made by staff (Mostly by the Admins) is to be respected. All decisions they make is made for a reason, whether there is not enough proof in a "Player Report" or "Missing Item/Legendary", or when it comes to banning someone who you found as a friend. All decisions made by staff were made for a reason to improve the quality of our beloved server.
We do recognize the difference between expressing your thoughts and arguing and becoming an issue. If you do become an issue on the forums, we will issue you a "Warning Point". That is basically us saying, stop what you are doing. We do not like distributing warning points, but if you continue to argue with staff on their decisions with repeated warnings and "Warning Points", you can expect a ban from the forums and maybe the server too.
4. Do not advertise other servers.
This one is pretty self explanatory. No server owner would want another server advertised on their forums or server. Even if you were to promote a specific server on our forums, the owner of that server may be displeased with you. Nobody wants you to take away our players, and if you are a server owner too, think about what it would be like if you were in our situation. Do not advertise!
If you are to advertise using PPMC's forums, you can expect an instant ban and your post will be immediately removed. You will not only be banned forever on the forums, but you are going to be banned on the server as well. Think about your actions before doing them. DO NOT ADVERTISE ON OUR FORUMS!
5. Do not attempt to fool staff.
When making a forum post about a missing item/pixelmon, we trust our users (however you do need screenshots) to the near fullest extent. We trust our players to the best of our ability, however there are some people who try and fool us. If you are to EVER fool staff on PPMC for a missing item/pixelmon and try and get away with it and we find out, you will be punished. You trust us, correct? We need to trust you!
If we find out that you tried fooling the staff of PPMC for your own personal benefit, you can expect a MAJOR punishment. Not only will the item/pixelmon be taken back, but we will Temp Ban (if kind) or Permanently Ban you from our servers. NO EXCEPTIONS!
6. Create your own post when addressing an issue.
When you need to create a player report (which would be in the "Player Reports" section), or just create a random post (which would be placed in the Off-Topic Section) we would appreciate if you created your own post to do it. When commenting on an old post, it brings back a topic that 1: Died Down or 2: Was already solvedthat does not have to be brought up again. If you have your own problem, make your own post. Simple as that.
Although there are no direct punishments to doing this (at least I don't think there is) you will be losing out yourself. If an admin sees a "Missing Item/Pixelmon" post under a post that already existed, they may wish to ignore it since you did not follow the correct format when making a forum post. Only you will be losing out, not them.
7. Do not create fake player reports.
When in a section that is used for a serious issue, you want to make posts that are, well, serious. We do not appreciate posts that you find "funny" in a serous section. The "Player Reports" and the "Missing Items/Pixelmon" sections are supposed to be for players with serious issues, not to be messed around with.
If you do continue to mess around with fake posts in sections that are supposed to be used seriously, you will be punished. You may receive a warning point and/or a temporary ban from the server. The forums do connect to the server so do not say it doesn't. If you continue to break this rule, the punishment will increase until you are permanently banned from the server and/or the forums.
8. Do not mention any illegal pixelmon side mods that may give players advantages.
When you notice a player using a side mod on a forum post (that isn't allowed), make sure you do not say the name of that mod! If you do, people may use that information and search up the mod, using it as an advantage to many players using side mods that are not allowed on the server. This will lead to them using mods that will extensively increase their advantage in game. SIDE MODS (THE ILLEGAL ONES) ARE NOT ALLOWED!
If you do break this rule, you will be subjected to a WARNING POINT. Warning points can add up to eventual bans from the forums, so I suggest you do not break this rule. If you do, you may ruin your chances on the forums.
9. Do not accept/ask for any real world currency!
You are not allowed to accept, request for any real world currency via paypal or any other vendor for in-game items or ANYTHING AT ALL. The forums are not a marketplace for real world goods.
