Recommended Posts

AirsoftForum Complete Board Rules
Below is a full, comprehensive list of posting rules, here at ASF. Members creating an account and participating in the forums here have agreed to these rules:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

All members who are in use of this board have agreed to the board Terms of Service, and will be held accountable for them.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You must make sure that you always maintain a working email address. If your email quits working at some point in the future and emails from the website start bouncing back, your account is likely to get deleted. However, if you have a completed profile and more than 50 posts AND you have made an appearance to the board in the last 6 to 12 months, you probably wont get deleted but you will definately get moved to the "user has broken email" group where you will not be able to post anything until you fix your email address or ask an administrator to fix it for you. If you have over 100 posts, a completed profile but not been to the board in the last 12 months, your account will not get deleted, just moved to the broken email group.

The point is that you must always maintain a working email address on file. And that you really should have a completed profile. These 2 things will be a big factor in wheither or not you get purged from the database when we "clean house" from time to time.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With regards to our entire website, there are no hacking attempts, pornography or spamming allowed. Failure to comply with this rule will result in an immediate ban.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There is no profanity, vulgarity, racist, or abusive language tolerated in your posts. Religion and politics are to be discussed STRICTLY in the Off Topic Section. Failure to comply with this rule will result in a raised warning and possible suspension under the discretion of the moderating staff. Repeated offenses will result in a ban.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

All members are expected to employ good grammar, spelling, and punctuation. This ensures the greatest comprehensibility, but also serves to keep the forums as professional as possible. Proper English exemplifies maturity and will generate more respect towards the member. "l33t" speak or "internet jabber" is looked down upon here, and degrades the image of the speaker. Incomprehensible statements are subject to deletion, as mentioned here:

Here is an example of poor grammar, and a corrected version.

This is not a punishable rule; it is more of a "guideline." It is recommended to employ good grammar if one wants to become a recognized member.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Necroposting is defined here as making a new post in an old, inactive thread. Threads inactive for more than 1 month will be considered outdated. Please do not bring up these threads unless you have an exceptional reason to. Necroposting is not enforced in the voting subforum.

Below is a link to a healthy discussion on how necroposts are perceived in good light and bad.
http://www.airsoftforum.com/board/index.php?showtopic=99794

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The act of double-posting is defined as a member making another post in conjuction with their previous one to bring their thread up to the top of the sub-forum. This is allowed under strict conditions. If the thread has been inactive for longer than 2 days and has been unanswered, then a post may be made to bring the thread to the members' attention. Double-posting has a seperate set of rules in the Buy/Sell/Trade forums. See below for a link to the complete set of BST sub-forum rules.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Long threads that seem confusing or are beginning to get too long will be closed in order to maintain a level of comprehensibility. Members may start a new topic with a link to the first thread if the older thread gets closed. Members should let the moderating team know so that a link may be established between the older and newer thread.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Which gun threads" are defined as threads in which the poster openly asks for the best possible gun. Such questions are impossible to answer definitively, as there are literally hundreds of options. Vague topics in which the poster has done little or no research will be subject to closing or deletion.
Which gun Threads will now be allowed in the designated "Which Gun Should I buy" section.
The comparison of two (but not more than 6) airsoft guns with specific questions and requirements is allowed in all sections.

Correct:

I'm looking at three different guns: the E1 Mp5, the E1 M4, and the Cyma M14. I'm having difficulty in deciding which I should get. I want to play woodland games in huge courses. Which one would be best for that?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The discussion of spud guns, modified airsoft guns (besides airsoft-specific upgrades), homemade guns, and otherwise dangerous weapons is not permitted at ASF for liability and safety reasons.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The discussion of explosives, fire crackers, or any other form of pyrotechnics is not permitted at ASF for liability and safety reasons.

A) Helping the member by showing/telling them how to do a proper forum or Google search, including the suggestion of functional key words

B) Politely giving the member the answer to their question, explaining how the answer was found, and providing a beneficial suggestion that they could find much more information by utilizing the search tools ASF provides.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The term "Backyard Airsoft", when used by members on this forum, will be assumed to be in reference to:

Playing in any part of a yard at a private residence, within visual or audible distance of any neighbor or public road or street. Fences do not count, no matter how high they are.

The term "Neighborhood" when used in conjunction with or associated with the playing of Airsoft "games" will be assumed to be in reference to playing airsoft in a public place.

This forum understands that there are many that live in rural country areas whose backyards are large and are far from any active street, be it farms, or simply a country house. These many-acre back plots are not, by the above definitions, considered to be "backyards".

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Flaming is not tolerated in these forums. Insulting members will result in a raised warning. Insulting members 3 times in a row will result in a suspension. Continuing to flame members will result in an immediate ban. This applies to all parties involved in the flame war.

Flaming a moderator is prohibited, and will result in severe consequences. Disputes or concerns may be brought to the moderator through e-mail or Personal Message with no consequence, as long as the message is professional.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It is against the rules to advertise other airsoft forums here, unless it is a locally based forum for organizing local games. You may not advertise national or multi-national forums here. If you wish to advertise your Facebook group, or Youtube channel/request subscriptions, you need to have a link back to Airsoftforum.com in your page description.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The ASF board is for you to use to gain and share knowledge about airsoft and related topics. However, these rules must be followed to maintain order and maximize the efficiency of the board. We hope you will enjoy your stay here.

This rule takes affect the second it is posted. The rule is to reflect actions against members and moderators.

 

Any actions taken against a member or moderator has the possibility of a carry over. What this means is - if you was found guilty of breaking a rule in the chat room, you may find yourself with a carry over punishment on ASF and vise-versa.
