You agree, through your use of this forum, that you will not post any material which is false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, adult material, or otherwise in violation of any International or United States Federal law. You also agree not to post any copyrighted material unless you own the copyright or you have written consent from the owner of the copyrighted material. Spam, flooding, advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are also forbidden on this forum.

Note that it is impossible for the staff or the owners of this forum to confirm the validity of posts. Please remember that we do not actively monitor the posted messages, and as such, are not responsible for the content contained within. We do not warrant the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information presented. The posted messages express the views of the author, and not necessarily the views of this forum, its staff, its subsidiaries, or this forum's owner. Anyone who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to notify an administrator or moderator of this forum immediately. The staff and the owner of this forum reserve the right to remove objectionable content, within a reasonable time frame, if they determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, please realize that they may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately. This policy applies to member profile information as well.

You remain solely responsible for the content of your posted messages. Furthermore, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless the owners of this forum, any related websites to this forum, its staff, and its subsidiaries. The owners of this forum also reserve the right to reveal your identity (or any other related information collected on this service) in the event of a formal complaint or legal action arising from any situation caused by your use of this forum.

You have the ability, as you register, to choose your username. We advise that you keep the name appropriate. With this user account you are about to register, you agree to never give your password out to another person except an administrator, for your protection and for validity reasons. You also agree to NEVER use another person's account for any reason.  We also HIGHLY recommend you use a complex and unique password for your account, to prevent account theft.

After you register and login to this forum, you will be able to fill out a detailed profile. It is your responsibility to present clean and accurate information. Any information the forum owner or staff determines to be inaccurate or vulgar in nature will be removed, with or without prior notice. Appropriate sanctions may be applicable.

Please note that with each post, your IP address is recorded, in the event that you need to be banned from this forum or your ISP contacted. This will only happen in the event of a major violation of this agreement.

Also note that the software places a cookie, a text file containing bits of information (such as your username and password), in your browser's cache. This is ONLY used to keep you logged in/out. The software does not collect or send any other form of information to your computer.



There has been way too much trolling lately.  It's gotten to the point where it's virtually impossible to read the Atlas, honestly.  Accordingly, I'm instituting a new policy, called the TrollList.  For now, it is in my own section only.

Consequences of TrollListing
Your posts in Off-Topic and Forum Community will be deleted.  Trying to get around this will decrease the chances that you are ever removed.  In severe cases (marked with an asterisk on the below list) posts in the past 30 days will be deleted, if possible.

Cause of TrollListing
This policy applies to those who have received multiple warnings.  Furthermore, it only applies to those who have actively ignored these warnings (refused to respond to PMs about it) or passively ignored them (violated the same rules repeatedly despite promises not to.)  Finally, it applies to any user who has -- for any reason -- been voted as banned by the moderator staff, but has not yet been banned.

No specific warning will be given for being TrollListed.  Any poster on this list will have exhibited chronic misbehavior, and received ample warning or been the subject of many post deletions.  In other words, if you're on this list, it won't be a surprise.

Current TrollList
   Alexander Hamilton* - Inappropriate thread-bumping, personal attacks, abuse of reporting system, spam.
   Libertas*- Chronic personal attacks, abuse of reporting system, spam.

How to get off the list
It is not my responsibility to help you be removed from the list.  If you have questions about improvement, you need to contact me, not vice-versa.  You're entitled to disagree with the policy.  But personal antagonizing, "but ___ is worse!", etc., will not get you removed.  Removal will happen when I am satisfied that a meaningful behavioral change has happened in other forums.  Respect disagreement will not negatively impact your chances at removal.  Abrasiveness or further mis-behavior will.

* People who are currently elected in Atlasia will be allowed to vote and do their duties of those offices and nothing else. Anything done outside these bounds will be edited out of said post. People will also be allowed to declare for elected office.

** If posters on the troll list continue to spam all posts will be deleted, overruling the asterick above.

Libertas holds office; You want to put an asterisk next to his name, too.

I don't see a reason why Winston belongs on this list, as he doesn't do "chronic personal attacks" on people. Sure, he holds grudges, but he doesn't go out of his way to mess with people.

The asterisk by the name doesn't lead down to the asterisk at the bottom. It indicates "sever cases."

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Just to be clear, are you saying people on the list cannot post at all unless they are voting, declaring to run, or talking inside an assembly thread? They cannot debate, or campaign, or respond to newspaper requests for an interview?

That's usually what not being able to post means.

So, here is it. I imagined that the "Alcon method" would rapidly be expanded to the AFE board. Actually, I consider it's a quite intelligent moderating system, at least far better than arbitrary thread deletions.
I want to have a look at how this works, but I think it can really help improving the board, as long as moderators don't start abusing of the list.

Basically. But obviously not suitable to Atlasia. See what Teddy said.

Well we gotta think whether those people should even be allowed in Atlasia.

Yes. But that decision is Dave's and/or the Atlasian Courts'. Not someone's who is so obviously party in the dispute that it's not funny anymore.
(I also have serious issues with one inclusion on these lists btw - Einzige - and, although that's thankfully not relevant in Atlasia yet, with one absence: Rochambeau. I mean, if that's not incessant spamming then how are SpaceCom's occasional ritalin lapses so?)

Yeah, IMO Sewer shouldn't be in, neither Einzige. The first loves just making fun of everything, but never makes personal attacks. The second is sometimes very harsh, but he always gives arguments and discuss about ideologies.

He is not banned. So far he's actually followig the rules unlike Hamilton and Libertas and if it continues and he doesn't do spam he'll be getting off the list.
