Recent posting of controversial subjects such as politics has called my attention. It appears that the Filefront Comment Rules are inadequate and obsolete. The rules, for Filefront commenting, are the SAME as the rules for any other well-operated fansite such as HeavenGames. I have contacted Ronnie (Network Admin) and asked him to add a few more rules to our comments system so that all members will be able to post responsibly. These were the original rules: No "Yay I got First Post!" posts, no exceptions and no matter what other content the post has! No Pornographic Material. Any sexually oriented imagery or links to such content will not be tolerated. No Warez or Illegal Software. This includes linking to software, posting about it, and suggesting to get it. No Cursing or Swear words. We encourage you to use our comment sections as a forum to debate files, news, etc., but please use proper adjectives to express yourself. We will not tolerate abuse upon another member or author. No Attacks / Retaliation of any kind against a member, or group of members. Please do not advertise for other sites or forums here. Maximum of 3 smileys per regular member. A member of filefront posted the following:
"Here are some reasons why America and its people aren't as great as they make themselves out to be: 1) They do not care about our planet - they are happy to be the biggest polluters in the world but are so selfish as other people have to suffer because of the greenhouse effect and America contributes a huge portion of this. 2) The racism that goes on in the media is dispicable - they should be ashamed of themselves! 3) The war in Iraq - It was so completely pointless. You think you can stop terrorism by bombing a country? Unfortunate that it does not really work like that then. And it was about oil, not about freeing the people. There are plenty of African countries with no resourses and terrible dictators but the Americans don't help them. 4) Flag waving - what is their obsession with the American flag. Having that extent of an obsession in any other country would grant you the title "mentally ill". 5) The American Dream - only so many people can become stars, the rest - who try just as hard as the people who make it by the way - end up becoming pornstars or working behind a counter in a fast food resturaunt, if they can get a job at all. 6) Guns - it is rediculous really. We see videos about how easy it is to get a gun and people talking about how they need guns and we laugh. The reason there are so many gun related deaths is because it is so simple to get a gun. If you look at places with much more stringent gun laws you see there are far fewer gun related deaths simply because people cannot get their hands on them. 7) Arrogance - the people of the US have nothing to be arrogant about really. The world see them as a bunch of morons with the highest percentage of fat people in the world!" Please go ahead and meet people in America before you say anything about them, and I don't mean just a few, I mean meet very many of them; I annoyed by stereotypical people... Seriously, where did you get that idea of flag waving? I think you're mentally ill...
Personally, I do not find this offensive. However, others do, and I have received complaints. Now, as of August 29th 2007, new rules for AoE3 Files posting include, but are not limited to: 1. No political or controversial statements involving countries, states, or people. All members are forbidden from bringing in political or controversial arguments/threads from other websites. 2. No religious statements or discussions without the Head Admin's consent. 3. Do not blow off steam after when you are angry (for example, after you have lost your game or the Admins have validated a PotD that you deem unfavorable). 4. Do not make unintelligent posts such as a plain "lol!" without other comments. There is no benefit to others or yourself if you simply post your first emotion without constructive comments. Every post must be at least somewhat related to the picture or file OR related to others' comments. 5. Only admins are allowed to moderate comments. Do not tell other people what to discuss and what not to discuss. 6. You MAY petition admins in files/potd/news comments AFTER emailing filefront AND all the admins AFTER one week has passed. The reason for this is that Filefront mail often gets lost. These rules apply in both the FORUMS and PotD/File/other commenting. A Filefront Network Admin will soon add a summary of these rules to the entire Filefront commenting system. Members who do not follow these rules will have their posts deleted. Repeatedly disobeying these rules will lead to a ban from commenting. Do not take the titles of pictures of the day too seriously! There will be NO political cartoons. All pictures are reviewed by an admin before being validated. Their captions must first be approved before final validation.
