Board rules

These rules are disclosed to clarify the various responsibilities of all community members here on FG's Modlists. They shall be adhered to by everyone to ensure that our board runs smoothly and provides a fun and productive experience for all of our community members and visitors.

  1. Be excellent to one another. The most golden of all rules. #
  2. Don't be a hater. Defamatory, abusive, bullying, harassing (including sexual harassment), racist, hateful, or violent material is not allowed and will not be tolerated. Ethnic slurs, religious intolerance, homophobia/transphobia, and personal attacks are strictly forbidden. This includes images, avatars, and usernames. #
  3. Spam, posting excessive links, and abuse of channels is not allowed. Excessive emotes, gibberish, sentences/phrases broken into one-word messages, chain messages, and excessive mentioning of people or roles is not allowed. Mentions, reply pings, and other notification-generating activity should be used only when absolutely necessary. Trolling behavior is not allowed. Staff reserve the right to take pre-emptive action against users found to be disruptive in the wider modding community. #
  4. NSFW content is required to remain in forums designated NSFW. This includes avatars, images, messages, and usernames. Staff reserve the right to change usernames, request avatar changes, and otherwise prohibit interaction on the forum until the appropriate changes are made. #
  5. Staff are the final arbiters of any possible rule infraction. Discussion with the intent of gaining understanding is allowed. Arguments, sass, and sarcastic remarks are not. Ban evasion is strictly forbidden and a ban appeal process is in place in the event that it is relevant. #
  6. Piracy, warez, torrents, and leaked content are all strictly forbidden. Links, asking for links, and suggesting links to this content is forbidden. This includes sharing old versions of mod and modlist files. Sharing Nexus Premium accounts is against Nexus TOS and is forbidden. Discussion of pirated copies of Skyrim or any other game is forbidden. Permissions laid out by mod authors are honored on this forum and breaking those permissions is forbidden. #
  7. Personally identifiable information is not to be posted anywhere on the forum. Personally identifiable information includes, but is not limited to, phone numbers, home addresses, e-mail addresses, and so on. Respect people's privacy. #
  8. Reading the documentation is not optional. We provide extensive documentation which answers 95% of questions in detail. Search the documentation before asking your question. When requesting support, provide as much information as possible. #
  9. Worldly talk is forbidden. Topics that fall under worldly talk include politics, religion, morality, philosophy, conspiracy theories, mod/modlist author drama, and other real world issues. We're allergic to drama in this forum. #
  10. This is a support forum for FG's Modlists. Support is not provided for modlists made by other modlist authors and other modlists should not be discussed here. Content related to other modlists will be removed. Support queries should be posted to the correct forum and only once - do not cross-post in multiple forums. Do not ask to ask, nor ask things such as "can someone help?". Just post your issue and we will assist if possible. Do not direct message members of staff without explicit permission. #
  11. Staff are not required to support modified versions of the modlists. All discussion of modifying the lists should be done within the Modding category of the forum. Suggesting that someone modify the lists should also be done within the Modding category of the forum. #
  12. Do not, under any circumstances, contact mod authors, mod guide authors, or other modlist authors for support with FG's Modlists nor to obtain old copies of mods or modlist files. #
  13. Bugs are not to be reported anywhere on this forum. If you believe you have encountered a bug, you should use the appropriate bug report form on the FG's Modlists website. #
  14. Community-created content is to be kept in the appropriate channel. Do not post videos, streams, images, or any other content related to modlists that are not part of the FG's Modlists brand. If a content creator wishes to speak with ForgottenGlory regarding their content and how FG's Modlists factors into it, they may do so themselves. Do not do so on their behalf. #
  15. Paywalled mods, modlists, and other such content are strictly forbidden. Do not solicit for custom-made modlists, mods, or other such content. This is a support forum, not a store. #
  16. Most importantly, party on! We're all here to play games and have fun. #
  17. Enforcement and Adjudication

    1. Three strikes, you're out. Receiving three warnings will result in a permanent ban. #
    2. Staff use their best judgment when issuing warnings, timeouts, and bans. Warnings cannot be appealed. Decisions made by ForgottenGlory are (usually) final and cannot be appealed except in extenuating circumstances. Bans may only be appealed via the proper form. #
    3. Staff reserve the right to issue temporary mutes/timeouts for behavior deemed as disruptive whether the behavior has broken a rule or not. #
    4. Egregious or particularly harmful behavior may result in a ban without any warnings being issued. Rule 12 in particular is especially subject to this. #
