Posting Guidelines (14th December 2018) and Garry's Mod Board Rules
0 replies, posted
These are a set of guidelines to help people familiarise themselves with Facepunch. They’re not an exhaustive list, but if you follow these guidelines you can’t go far wrong.
Respect each other - Flaming and name calling will not be tolerated. Hate speech of any kind will result in you being permanently banned.
Be mindful of others - Think about how your post will impact other users. Don’t try to wind people up on purpose.
Be constructive - If you’re critiquing something, be detailed. Expand so it is helpful.
No hostility - Don’t post in anger. If something riles you up, take a few moments to compose your thoughts before replying.
Sobriety - Posting whilst under the influence is not a good idea.
Thread Necromancy - Please don’t bump really old threads. Make a new one. Don’t post in an old thread to say that it was bumped. That’s silly.
Use the Report feature - If you see something amiss, use the report feature. Ignore the text that is already on there; that can’t be changed right now. You won’t be punished for making reports.
Warez - Don’t post links to stuff. You can discuss pirated content.
“Call Outs” - These are posts that call on a user to explain something even though they’re not involved in a thread. Please don’t make these unless your post actually contributes to the thread.
Ratings - They’re a quick way to show sentiment towards a post. Please don’t angrily post about receiving “Dumb” ratings, it makes you look stupid.
Use English - This is an English speaking forum, you should always speak in English unless directed otherwise (for example, the Swedish chat thread).
Subforum Specific Rules - Subforums may have a specific set of rules which if they exist, will be listed below. Please be sure to view these before posting.
Lurk - If you’re not entirely sure what to say, don’t say anything at all! It’s recommended that you lurk for a few days before posting.
Bans are a warning - No need to get all bent out of shape if you get banned. We use these to warn you that what you’re doing is wrong. If you chat with the Moderator who banned you on Discord, they may unban you if you show understanding and remorse.
Moderators Are Never Wrong™ - We are beyond criticism and are the best. Moderators have green usernames; you should do as they say.
These forums belong to Garry - They’re a privilege, not a right.
This board is for Garry’s Mod content, Source Engine development, and Lua coding.
Script exploits must be reported to the author or distributor before being posted publicly. Exploits regarding workshop addons or Garry’s Mod itself should be reported to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
You can report servers breaking Facepunch's Terms of Service to firstname.lastname@example.org. This includes but is not limited to faking player count, creating redirect servers for falsifying ping, and flooding the serverlist with fake servers.
These forums are not checked for bug reports or feature suggestions by Facepunch developers - those should be posted to the garrysmod-issues or garrysmod-requests repositories, respectively. Game code changes should be submitted as a pull request to the garrysmod repository. Discussion and suggestions relating to the official Garry's Mod wiki belong in the wiki discussion thread.
You may report rule infractions using the Report Post button in the drop down menu at the top right of every post. Ban appeals or sticky suggestions can be DM'd to @code_gs#4197 or @Nookyava#0001 in the Facepunch Discord.
Do not advertise or ask for server IPs, hosts, developers, staff, co-owners, mappers, modellers, or any other recruitment.
Do not ask for copies of Garry's Mod, servers, or any other free goods. You may give away free copies of Garry's Mod, but not servers for security reasons.
All discussion of non-Facepunch websites, servers, or other external entities must be kept to one threadand must receive moderator permission first.
No drama posts targeting specific players or communities. Discussion of community practices requires moderator permission first.
No discussion involving malicious activities, including cheating or hacking. Discussion of cheats for prevention purposes require moderator permission first.
Thread titles must be descriptive - contents of the thread should be adequately described by its title.
No ALL-CAPS titles.
No tags in titles unless it is for help specification ([DarkRP], [Linux], etc.).
