    8. Do not derail threads.
    • Changing the topic of conversation from the original post.
    • Do not initiate or participate in thread derailment.
    • Adding “On Topic:” doesn’t always stop derailment, think twice before posting something.
    9. Do not bump topics more than 30 days old.
    • This does not apply to the Plugins and Support Desk questions.
    10. Do not slander.
    • Damaging a user’s reputation or image without valid and or legitimate evidence.
    • Photos and videos tend to work well as evidence.
    • If you’re going to criticize another community, back it up with screenshots, logs, or other forms of proof.
    11. Do not leak private/personal content/information.
    • You are free to release your own private content/information.
    • Do not encourage others to leak the private information of others.
    12. Respect all users and communities.
    • Treat everyone with respect, kindness, and the way you wish to be treated.
    • Community bashing is moderated similarly to user bashing. Replace the name of the community with the name of a user, and see if your comment is appropriate.
    13. Do not use inappropriate pictures as your avatar.
    • Disturbing images.
    • Porographic images.
    14. Do not discuss one-on-one topics.
    • Use private messaging to resolve issues.
    15. Do not create alternate accounts.
    • Using more than one forum account.
    • Using one to avoid a ban.
    • Using one to shit post.
    • Using one to break rules.
    • You only need one.
    15.5. Do not use your account as a means for another to circumvent a ban.
    • Your account is yours only.
    • Guilt by association applies.
    16. Do not encourage Clockwork framework/schema edits.
    • Almost everything can be done through a plugin.
    17. Do not condone or glamorize Clockwork/GMod exploits
    • Posts condoning or glamorizing Clockwork or GMod exploits, especially those used against Cloud Sixteen customer communities, will result in an instant permanent ban. If you know of a Clockwork or GMod exploit that can be used to damage a customer's community or server, you could earn $20. Please private message kurozael if you know of one and it will be fixed as soon as possible!
    • Any "warning" threads created will be instantly deleted from forums and the account who posted said thread will have warning points added to their account. If you are claiming to having your server exploited and carry sufficient evidence to back up said claims, direct your messages to the Managers or kurozael through the use of PMs.
    18. Do not backseat moderate.
    • If someone breaks a rule, report it and move on.
    19. Do not advertise products from competition.
    • Anything that is not related to Cloud Sixteen or it’s affiliates is prohibited.
    • This does not apply to communities, refrain from mentioning the other product.
    20. Do not have a name that...
    • Is a spam name such as “fx2ipqr” or “asd123f”
    • Uses your server's name, and/or your rank on said server. E.G. "[SERVERNAME-RANK]{name}"
    • Uses characters that aren't derived from a language. (English, Latin, Cyrillic, Japanese, etc.)
    Expect to have your name changed if your name falls into the categories above.

    21. No "exposing" threads.
    • This is not the place to air out your dirty laundry. Any community or personal drama is barred from general boards.
    • If you post an "X exposed" thread you will be banned regardless of how much you or your community has been wronged.
    • Claims of having your server and/or community involved in any kind of drama or infighting should be spared from being posted within any board.
    • Threads explicitly made in response to an event concerning anything other than activity and the goings on of CloudSixteen should stay off of the boards. Of course, any said event that shares in some form of overtly-dramatic or extremely negative context is easily something that should remain within the boundaries of another forum. This also extends to threads relating to the private business of players and their transactions, verbal or otherwise.
    22. Do not post in the wrong section.
    • Actually read the rules thread of every section, and make sure that you're posting your support question, plugin request or release, map creation, or shitposty thread in the right section.
    • Failing to do so will result in your thread being deleted, and (depending on your offense) you being warned.
    23. Use your common sense.

    24. Use descriptive thread titles and do not use "shit" thread titles such as ones that are all lower-case or include D4nk Meme$. Threads that do not comply to this rule may be subject to removal, or the moderators may "fix" your thread title and post a message reminding you not to break the rule again.
