A brief word, before we start this: https://forums.pocketmine.net/threads/the-state-of-pocketmine.17849/ -Opening- It has come to my attention that user conduct within the forums has dropped significantly. To combat this, I will be advising certain actions to be avoided, and others modified. -Conduct to other Users- Conduct to other users in the forums is at an all time low. Some things I will not accept: Bullying, Blatant disrespect or lack of effort to communicate fairly, Posting advertisements to other users [Will discuss in a bit], Lack of effort to understand another users post, and in turn harass or become ignorant in your reply. Spam Posting, Spam Replying. Examples: "Next time you should just not bother asking and just ask for code to copy, because you don't want to l earn" Although that is free speech, it's a horrible response to someone. Instead format it like this: "<User> maybe you should use the Wiki etc", "Try googling this helpful topic", "Here's the completed code maybe you can learn from it " If you don't want to be nice, and just rather blunt. Don't reply in the first place. If I see a person venting their personal shit at other members, they will be published. If they continued, theres always a nice spot on the ban list for a week. -Advertising- Now I may have been guilty of it at a extremely early stage of this forums existence and may still be with my referral link [I don't think so to be honest, both parties get something out of it and no real money is trading hands], but Advertising in PM's or in forum topics is not allowed. Just today I came across a User who was mass messaging users to sell unfinished plugins to users for $50 each. Disgusting. You know who you are. If you continue to do this, you will be dealt with. [To clarify, Advertising with the intent of gaining tangible usable Money, is not allowed. Referral Links are okay as they offer the prospect of "Credit" rather than usable Money to which someone may have monetary gain.] -Plugins- Remarking with the theme in the previous point, selling plugins on the forums is a big no no. It's pretty bad form as well. Again, charging $50 for a probably half finished plugin is pretty bad. Along with this, distribution of plugins through private messages is a big no no as well. It presents a huge security concern for you as well. Don't take the candy ! Yes I am aware "no one" is reviewing plugins, I'll try get that under control. Posting plugins in the development section is also a punishable offence. You may post uncompleted and non .phar plugins [Still uncompleted] here, here being the development section. [Recap] Uncompleted projects and uncomplied plugins [That do not represent a full completed project to which you can release a plugin] can be posted in the development section. Full release plugins posted here are against forum rules as by doing so you bypass the review process. Stolen Content = 7 Day ban EXTRA : https://forums.pocketmine.net/threads/new-posting-requirement-read.17843/ -Private Messages- Now we don't go through everyone's messages like the NSA, but if you get reported, you get a big shinny "Come here moderator and look at all my chat history" marker. To which we can see your entire chat history, and potentially punish you for each violation we see. ProTip: Don't make someone have to report you due to your conduct within private messages and this won't happen. -Wrong Forum Posting-Not something I, and other staff members will punish you for, but if done enough maybe we might. There is numerous forums to post your questions, content and conversations in. All we ask is you seriously have a talk with yourself to see if I'm really posting in the right forum! Think first, click later. We hope you have enjoyed this Public Service Announcement. Failure to comply will result in punishment. Tl;dr You do shady shit, you get banned.
