This website is dedicated to family fun, ABOVE ALL ELSE. We invite all collectors, fans and interested parties of the FFX Lightsaber to join our site and we also enjoy having members of other FFX Lightsaber forums here. Understand this, however, THIS FORUM HAS A FIRMER APPROACH TO MODERATING and the rules and regulations of this site are to be adhered to, no matter of opinion or experience somewhere else.




In this RULES AND REGULATIONS GUIDE, the word:

MEMBERS will mean the GENERAL MEMBERSHIP.

MEMBERS OF THE S.A.B.E.R. GUILD are MEMBERS of the FX-Sabers.com site who have been inaugurated by the S.A.B.E.R. GUILD.

MODERATORS will mean the Members of the FX-Sabers.com site who oversee the implementation and enforcement of the FX-Sabers.com site's Rules and Regulations.

S.A.B.E.R. GUILD LIAISONS are the MODERATORS that have been appointed to assist with MEMBERS OF THE S.A.B.E.R. GUILD due to overwhelming circumstances.

ADMINISTRATORS will mean the creators of the FX-Sabers.com website. They oversee the behaviour of ALL MEMBERS and have the final decision as to what will transpire in any event.




GROUND RULES THAT WILL BE IMPLEMENTED, REGARDLESS WHOEVER CREATES A POST:

The MEMBERS here at FX-Sabers.com has been relatively aware and respectful of the above rule implemented by the MODERATING STAFF. However, I'll elaborate on it along with more rules and regulations in a manner that are simpler to understand:

(These options can either be dealt with via PMing a MODERATOR personally OR use the Report to Moderator option below the QUOTE and MODIFY buttons)

1. SWEARING - Even though we have a swear filter on this site, there are still ways of typing words that sound similar to this or posting pics of vulgar or pornographic acts/material. Due to the nature of this website, this manner of posting will be removed, regardless and a PM warning will be sent by a MODERATOR to remove it from their post. Furthermore, if this manner of behaviour is continued by the MEMBER, the issue will be brought before the COUNCIL and the MEMBER will be PMed by the ADMINISTRATOR of this site, whom will decide in what manner to proceed with this issue. THIS IS FINAL. In the event of anything pornographic, you will be automatically placed on a Temporary Ban and the ADMINISTRATOR will render the final decision.

1a. Please read this - Swear filters, abbreviations and stuff like that. - which discusses abbreviations and swearing.


2. FLAMING - THIS IS NOT TOLERATED. Any FLAMING of another MEMBER or MODERATOR will result in a PM warning. A second incident will result in a TEMPORARY BAN, in which the MEMBER'S activity will be reviewed and then brought before the COUNCIL for review. If the MEMBER is caught FLAMING a third time, there will be a Temporary Ban again and a FINAL DECISION will be implemented by the site's ADMINISTRATOR.

3. BELITTLEMENT OF OTHER MEMBERS AND/OR MODERATORS - Even though a MEMBER'S view of another MEMBER'S/MODERATOR'S behaviour may be that of irritation and immaturity, there is NO EXCEPTION OF PUTTING THEM OR THEIR STATEMENT(s) DOWN. This can sometimes be confused with a MODERATOR explaining a post's meaning for the 5th or 6th time after it was explained by the topic's author. Unfortunately, because the MEMBERS and MODERATORS do not see face to face physically, meaningless repetition of an inquisitive post is to be taken at face value, as the way it is typed. If a MEMBER feels that a MEMBER or MODERATOR is belittling them, PM a MODERATOR or the ADMINISTRATOR with your concerns.

"Please respect all ADMINISTRATORS/MODERATORS. They do the best they can to keep the peace and create an enjoyable environment for all MEMBERS. Please adhere to their suggestions and posts. If you need to clarify anything with their post, PM them. They will do their best to explain their reasoning."

4. SPAMMING - "Please keep all topics "on track" and keep the spamming to a minimum. If the ADMINISTRATORS or MODERATORS see any excessive spamming, the posts will be deleted, no questions asked. Also, please keep the topics in the correct forums. If you don't know where a specific thread should go, then post it in the Q/A FORUM . A mod will move it to the correct forum if need be. On that note, don't flip out if your topic gets moved. Again, if you have a problem with something, then please take it up with a MODERATOR."

5. HARASSMENT - This is an increasing problem that is starting to creep into the FX-Sabers.com Forums as of late. MEMBERS have been "beating a dead horse" or "jumping on the BASH wagon" with regards to another MEMBER'S post/topic. This seems to invite more MEMBERS to take "pot-shots" at the MEMBER who initiated the topic or post in question. This behaviour not only leaves that MEMBER with a feeling of either anger or hurt or both. But HARASSMENT is a double edge sword. Asking HARASSING questions that lead nowhere and are repetitive, will result in a stern in-forum warning or warning in the form of a PM from a MODERATOR. Keep your negative comments and derogative insults to yourself. If you have an issue, contact a MODERATOR. HARASSMENT is not tolerated in real life and there is no exception here. MEMBER WILL be contacted with a warning and that INCIDENT will be discussed in the COUNCIL. A second warning will result in a Temporary Ban and the MEMBER will be dealt with by the ADMINISTRATOR.

6. TOPIC RULES - On FX-Sabers.com, there are topics that are like games, done for fun and lighten the mood of the more serious topic threads involved in collecting or so on. The MODERATORS have noticed that some of the MEMBERS are not following the rules laid out by the topic's author. Please follow the rules that are implemented. If it becomes out of hand, either the topic's author or the MODERATORS will inform that MEMBER of the rules. If the MEMBER insists on not following the rules, that MEMBER'S posts in that topic will be removed by a MODERATOR and the MEMBER will be notified by the MODERATOR via PM. If that MEMBER persists in not following any topic's rules, the MEMBER will be PMed and warned. The next warning will be from the MODERATOR and that MEMBER will have a Temporary Ban and shall be contacted by the ADMINISTRATOR.

7. GET PERMISSION - This is a grey area in regards to definition. However, if a MEMBER has not been approved by the ADMINISTRATOR to post sales, special positions for MODERATORS or MEMBERS advertising businesses, DO NOT DO SO. The MEMBER will be warned by PM, the topic locked and / or removed, REGARDLESS and it will be discussed in COUNCIL. A second warning will result in a Temporary Ban and the MEMBER will be dealt with by the ADMINISTRATOR.




THE S.A.B.E.R. GUILD AND S.A.B.E.R GUILD LIAISONS

In the last two years, FX-Sabers.com has grown dramatically in MEMBER size and has become recognized as a great place to contact MEMBERS OF THE S.A.B.E.R. GUILD. Along with this, the increase in demand of "Custom FFX Lightsabers" has really increased. And in order to cope with the increase, some MODERATORS have been appointed to oversee assistance with the overloaded MEMBERS OF THE S.A.B.E.R. GUILD. They are S.A.B.E.R. GUILD LIAISONS and they are there to answer questions in regards to the MEMBERS OF THE S.A.B.E.R. GUILD they are assisting. Please understand that the S.A.B.E.R. GUILD LIAISONS are appointed to relieve the heavy stress that MEMBERS OF THE S.A.B.E.R. GUILD are going through.

AVATARS AND SIGNATURE SIZES FOR MEMBERSHIP OF THE FX-SABERS WEBSITE

The total amount allowed at this time for the MEMBERS's Avatar size is 80 pixels x 80 pixels and the Signature size is 300 pixels long by 150 pixels high, IN TOTAL. This allows the Site to open pages at a smoother and faster rate for our MEMBERS. Some MEMBERS may still use dial-up and/or DSL, which moves at a slower rate than cable or T1 / T3. Also, there is to be no links to personal or other sites in the signature section. *EXCEPTION* A MAXIMUM OF 2 LINKS TO OTHER FX-SABERS.COM FORUM TOPICS IS ALLOWED. But only links to within the Site *EXCEPTION* This what the MEMBER's Profile is for and any links will asked to be removed. If the MEMBER exceeds the Avatar and/or the Signature size, they will be asked to correct the size. If asked a second time, the MEMBER shall be asked a second time SHALL be removed. If the MEMBER continues to disregard the Avatar and Signature Size Parameters, the MEMBER shall be warned by a MODERATOR. If the MEMBER thereafter disregards the warning, the ADMINSTRATOR shall be informed and deem what course of action shall be taken.

NOTE: MODERATORS, ADMINSTRATORS and SABER GUILD MEMBERS are allowed more size due to the nature of their position and SABER GUILD MEMBERS ARE allowed to have THEIR website in their signatures for business purposes.

     Also, when MEMBERS create their Screen Name, please refrain from Capitalizing each letter in that name, as this is for the MODERATORS and the ADMINSTRATORS. This is to distinguish them in a simpler fashion. MEMBERS who have total Capitalization, will be asked to correct this. If the MEMBER does not correct this, than a MODERATOR and/or the ADMINSTRATOR shall change it. If the MEMBER continues to Capitalize their Screen Name, the MEMBER shall be warned by a MODERATOR. Continued Capitalizing by the MEMBER shall be construed as a form of disregard for the Site's Rules and Regulations and the MEMBER shall be brought to the ADMINISTRATOR, whom will deem the actions to follow.




Canon Names are reserved and are not allowed to be used in whole or with Numbers any violations will be changed. Screen Names are also not allowed to be in ALL CAPS,  unless mixed with numbers and does not create a legible name.

Any violations will be changed.
