Forum Rules **Last Changed on 8/8/2016**

Updated on April 1, 2017 in General Discussion
15 on July 16, 2016

1: Stay on Topic This is a forum for Pokemon GO. It’d be very helpful if the information posted on this forum is relevant and or helpful in some way.

1.1 Other Content Not allowed

  • Malicious Software
  • NSFW Content (See Sec. 2)
  • Game Breaking Exploits
  • If you know of such and exploit and how to reproduce it, report it to Niantic.
  • Bait and switch links

1.2 Low Effort Posts
 This pretty much just means don’t post spam or steal someone elses post, it’s not cool man.

2: No NSFW Content

  • Sexual Incentives
  • Suggestive Clothing
  • Hardcore Drug Use
  • Excessive Profanity

3: Hateful language will not be allowed on this forum
Unless it is an OBVIOUS joke, please try to be as kind as you can on this forum. The goal is to have a safe friendly environment for other “PoGoers” to interact and exchange information with one another. Just be respectful.

4: Heavily insulting another user is not acceptable.
If you call someone a moron or a terrible player, whatever – this is the internet. But if you start really tearing someone a new one? He better really deserve it and be such a terrible person that we’re banning him instead of you.

5: No Advertisements

 This includes

  • Apps
  • Self Promotions

 This does not include

  • Websites that are HELPFUL

 Advertisements may be posted but only with the permission of Admin: Pikachu. 

 If an advertisement is posted without permission it will be taken down as soon as it is noticed.

6:Enforcing the rules
 When a moderator removes your post because it breaks one of our rules, we will direct message the user. We also keep track of which users break which rules, and will ban users who break the rules multiple times.

We use a series of increasingly severe punishments for most of our rules:

  • First time user has broken the rule: removal of the post, warning from a moderator
  • Second time: removal of the post, 3-7 day temporary ban
  • Third time: removal of the post, 30-60 day temporary ban
  • Fourth time: removal of the post, permanent ban

There are a few exceptions to this structure:

  • We don’t often ban people over low effort posts
  • Users usually get permanent bans by, at most, the second time they break Rule 3 or Rule 4

And, again, the mods reserve the right to remove posts and ban users (or not to do those things) at their discretion, regardless of these general policies.

TL;DR: Read the bold.

Thanks, but no, I would actually really appreciate if you guys can leave us alone, I know all 4 of your sites probably belong to the same owner, and actually, let me speak with you in Chinese: 我建这个论坛的目的不是为了赚钱也赚不了多少钱,放点GOOGLE广告只是COVER网站费用,我只是想提供一个平台给大家交流,并且杜绝一些不良的游戏风气,其实本来还不错,大家都是中国人我也不避讳,我们很多华人并不考虑总体环境,只是想为自己着想,虽然情理上没有什么不对,但道理上真的不是一个可持续发展的路,我能不能在这里请求你们可不可以不要在这个平台上SPAM了,去别的地方我不管,但这里是我个人的一点小梦想,不想因为我们华人的一些风气而破灭了,谢谢,你可以加我微信,Ryan_Liu_X 如果有任何问题的话

Question for Picachu (admin)

I’ve been working with my 11-year old son and creating Pokemon themed videos for a YouTube channel. I had asked before – was it alright for us post updates on this forum, to let others know.

The previous answer was an affirmative, but I’m north able to locate it (was part of this thread).

I just want to confirm before moving forward.

What is with the FIFA Coins and Path of Exile posts? Can they be deleted/blocked? I don’t think anyone has replied to them. That’s some kind of spam, right?

How does everyone feel about the accounts for sale post? I for one, would like it and others like it, blocked.

Trainer

Agreed.  But I didn’t see any kind of report button.  Who’s actually administrating the site?

I would like them blocked, then hunted down and beaten with a sack of doorknobs. I’m not the most veteran person here, but this pop stand has been remarkably free of unpleasantness and tripe.

I come here for the dialog, insight and camaraderie. I would gladly buy each of you a round at Nicky’s on I-10, except I’m pretty sure a few of you lads and lasses can’t yet get in the door. That said, if I ever meet one of you out in the real world hunting the same 100 IV dratini, I expect you to join me for at least one Shiner.

Man are you speaking my language. Door knobs. Dratini’s. Shiner. I’m in.

All we need now is a date and time.
