Our General Principles:
We expect that all members of NewOrderOnline will behave in a way that’s conducive to the diversity, intelligence and respectfulness of the community. Each of these three general principles is fundamental to the quality of our site.
Diversity – We’re a community of thousands of fans of different countries, from different backgrounds and with different perspectives on music and life. At all times, we expect our members to respect that.
Intelligence – We’re a community with quality standards and expect our members will make a sincere effort to contribute their thoughts on interesting subjects in a meaningful and respectful manner. Posting messages and otherwise interacting on NewOrderOnline is completely optional; many members often prefer to just read what others have to say. But if you do post, we expect that you’ll be respectful of the time of others by posting meaningfully.
Respectfulness – We expect our member to show respect for others. Respecting their person, their musical tastes, their time and their opinions – even if you disagree with them.
The following six categories of online conduct are unacceptable at NewOrderOnline and constitute a violation of our Community Standards which may result in warning, suspension or loss of membership:
Harrassment… Harassment occurs when a member insults, attacks, and denigrates another member at any time. Even though we realize that discussions can get intense, we have zero tolerance for taking an argument about a topic to a personal level. For instance, the use of terms such as "idiot, moron, stupid" and other derogatory terms constitutes harassment. Harassment not only includes individuals but also can apply to insults against others members of NewOrderOnline. Repeated critical and sharply negative posts toward a forum members can also constitute harassment.
Disruption…Posts which intend to disrupt the topic of conversation or steer the topic away from the focus of the forum and related news. Disruption can include harassment, multiple posting of the same post and posting completely off topic messages.
Vulgarity and Sexual Explicitness…As a community with a diverse variety of members and readers, we ask that our members to post without using vulgarity. Vulgarity not only includes vulgar language and pictures but also sexist, racist, anti-religious and homophobic language which may offend other members. In addition, the "masking" of vulgarity by inserting * or another keystroke in place of one or more letters in a vulgar term is unacceptable in most cases. We realize that there's a "grey area" of judgement with vulgarity but we ask that you'll respect others by avoiding vulgarity.
Solicitation… Refrain from using NewOrderOnline’s forums or chat to advertise your site, items for sale, commercial services or website. You may attach a short link to your site within your profile or signature but if you would like more promotion, you can either purchase publicity or contact us for promotions on the site.
Spamming…Spamming is the multiple posting of an identical or similar post on one or more of our Forums.
Please bear in mind that these are only guidelines; there is always a "grey area" and we understand that. Use your best judgment. If you have any questions about our Community Standards as they apply to specific cases, you can always Contact Us or ask a Moderator.
