Requirements to participate: register and login.
By registering, you acknowledge that you will abide by the BattleCorps (BC) posting rules. Failure to abide by these rules may result in temporary or permanent removal of your posting privileges.
When making a post on this message board, conduct yourself properly.
Proper conduct includes treating each other with respect. Confront an opinion, rather than a person; personal attacks of any kind are not tolerated. Do not use foul language or attempt to bypass our language filter.
The posting of messages or materials that are obscene, violent, abusive, discriminatory or threatening in nature, or designed to harass or intimidate another person are not tolerated.
We encourage lively debate about a number of topics, however when you object to a certain post to the point where you intend to attack the poster, contact the Moderators instead. The post may also be objectionable to us, in which case a heated response will just get you in trouble as well.
You can contact Moderators directly, or by using the "Notify a Moderator" button available in any post.
Do not post here if your only intention is to be confrontational. This includes behavior considered trolling by the Mod/Admin team.
Real world politics and religion are topics not allowed for discussion on this board.
No posting other people's personal information without their permission.
All Off-topic posts belong on the Off-Topic board. Off-topic posts should be limited to non-controversial subjects
Do not bring problems or flame wars from other message boards or webpages to this one, or personal issues from any other source. You have a problem with someone, DO NOT bring it in here.
No spam. Commercial messages are prohibited without specific permission of the Administrator.
If you post materials from other websites, books and/or newsgroups credit should be given whenever possible.
Do not post any images of the Unseen in your posts.
This means that no artwork of the Unseen from any Sourcebook, Technical Readout (3025, 3050 and 3055, which includes those IIC models that were NOT owned by FASA) or the images from the respective shows they originally debuted on.
Nor may images of toys, models or other paraphernalia related to the Unseen be used in any form with the following exceptions: You may post pictures of your painted miniatures on the message board.
Posting links to pictures on other sites is also acceptable.
This message board will not be used for trading, obtaining, making available or selling of unauthorized or illegally obtained copyrighted materials.

The Administrators and Moderators have the right to edit, delete, move or lock any message and/or thread for any reason. There may be NO warning and NO explanation as to why. The Moderators of the BattleCorps Message Board use their own discretion and judgement in deleting posts. That means that even if we're wrong, it's our right so long as we think our actions are necessary to keep the forum clean and tasteful.
Several procedures are in place to ensure that the Moderators are accountable to each other, the Administrators and InMediaRes, LLC. However, if you suspect that a Moderator or Administrator is behaving inappropriately or has made a mistake, do not hesitate to contact the Administrators.
Opinions, advice and all other information expressed by participants in discussions are those of the author. You rely on such information at your own risk. The Mod/Admin Team or InMediaRes will NOT be held responsible for the content of any message posted in the BattleCorps Message Board.
This is our typical and preferred course of action:
Posts that break any of the rules or are deemed inappropriate by the Mod/Admin team are removed to a separate storage area for review and documentation.
Every poster who violates the rules, with the exception of the violations listed below, will receive Three warnings. On the third warning you will lose your posting privileges for 1 week.
After the first offense, any additional violations will result in longer ban times, listed here:
1st Offense: 7-day ban
2nd Offense: 1-month ban
3rd Offense: 6-month ban
4th Offense: 1-Year ban
5th and final offense: Permanent ban
Please be aware that after your first ban, you may or may not receive additional warnings before additional bans.
Offenses that may result in an immediate ban:
Communicating any kind of threat
Circumventing an existing ban
Posting using another person's username with or without their permission. This will get both parties banned.
Posting pornography of any kind
Violation of Copyright as per the rule listed above
Hacking the site or someone's account
Please think carefully before you make or take any action that will cause you to lose you posting privileges. Ask yourself if it is worth it.
Special thanks go out to Scott Bukoski and Warner Doles, on whose efforts these rules are based.
