Naming conventions

These naming conventions are for threads in the Code Requests, Konsole Hacking, and Handheld Hijinx Forum. They have been formulated so that they are easy to read and so that, when threads are sorted by subject instead of date, they show up in a reasonable order.

The first part of the thread's name should be the system's abbreviation, enclosed in brackets. NES is for Nintendo, SNES is for Super Nintendo, N64 is for the Nintendo 64, GCN is for the Gamecube, GB is for the Game Boy and Game Boy Color, GBA is for the Game Boy Advance, NDS is for the Nintendo DS, SMS is for the Sega Master System, GEN is for the Genesis, GG is for the Game Gear, PSX is for the Playstation, PS2 is for the Playstation 2, and MAME is for Arcade games.

A space should follow the closing brackets and then the game name following that space. Abbreviations should be avoided if at all possible; however, if the entire title will not fit in the subject, the game name is the place to shorten the title, by abbreviation.

The game name should be followed by the region, enclosed in brackets. Standard GoodSet rules for regions apply: U for North America, E for PAL, J for Japan, and K for Korea. If multiple versions of the game exist, the region should be followed by a comma and a space, and the the version posted, preceded by a 'V', all inside the brackets. Additionally, the game ID should be posted in the first post of the thread, in order to avoid confusion.

After the closing bracket, a space should follow, and then, enclosed in brackets, the cheat device. Unneccessary details should be avoided here. For instance, listing AR and CB is enough, as opposed to ARDS and CBDS. The system already lets us know that the code/request is for the DS. The only time additional detail is needed is when the encryption seeding differs depending on the cheat device version, such as on the GBA and PS2.

It is hoped that these naming conventions are easy to follow and will help keep the forums easily organized.

If you have any questions, contact me.

More rules.

-One thread per game (or version of a game); Don't see the thread? Use the search function to make sure create. If the topic is locked, too damn bad. Wait. It won't be a perm lock.
-Don't bump old topics without a good reason (posting/requesting codes qualifies as a good reason)
-DO NOT EVER PM ANYONE ABOUT MAKING/CONVERTING/PORTING/EATING CODES UNLESS THEY EXPLICITLY GIVE YOU PERMISSION
-Read these rules.

Rules on signatures:

-They should not exceed 10 lines of text including image size
-They should not stretch the frame on 1024x768 screens
-1 image per sig of no more than 500kb in size
-Nothing annoying (moderators' and administrators' discretion)

You will receive a minimum of one warning if these rules are violated. More warnings may be given, depending on how severe the violation is, but repeat offenders will be banned at some point.

Post subject:  Re: Rules

Feel free to (properly) use the "report post" feature liberally. I do not read all the threads, and I imagine the other staff members do not do so either. However, abuse of this feature will result in a ban.

Additionally, if you receive warnings, pay attention to them. While there is no set limit on how many warnings you will get prior to a ban, they are an indication that your posting behavior warrants an immediate change.

Moderator Rules

All of the moderators should know these, but here they are in writing.

-Do not delete anything. Ever. This does not just include posts, but reports as well. Close post reports. Do not delete them. There are no exceptions to this rule.
-After locking a thread, leave it in the same forum for a few hours, so that the original poster can see that it has been locked. I generally wait until right before I go to bed before moving threads.
-When moving threads to any other forum, DO NOT leave a redirect. These are annoying.
-Take advantage of the "warn users" feature; this helps keep an easily accessible record of violations.
-All moderators have the power to ban other members. DO NOT ban any members unless there is no possible reason why this ban would be controversial among the staff. If you have any doubts about banning someone, leave it to an administrator.

Post subject:  Re: Rules

This rule shouldn't even need stating, but I'm going to anyway.

Any attempt by any member to compromise another user's account information, identity, computer, or anything of the sort, by any means (including but not limited to phishing and malware), can and will get you instantly and permanently banned. This type of behavior will not be tolerated. Our users have the right to surf our forum without taking such risks. Should legal action be taken against an offender, we will not try to protect you.

This rule does not extend to sarcastic comments combined with personal stupidity leading to damage, such as answering a computer problem with "format /y C:", or directly linking to sites (without attempting to falsify where the link goes) like http://d oo m3 .zo y.o rg / (remove spaces at own risk).

Link removed to prevent accidental clicking

This should go without saying, but this is an English-speaking site. And no, "hay u shld du tis d00d", doesn't count. Obviously, this doesn't mean everything must be in English. Pretty much anything goes in spamghetti, after all. There's a thread right now that's basically all in foreign language. Additionally, if English isn't your primary language, it's acceptable to ask if anyone speaks your primary language, in order to be better helped. Kenobi speaks French and Mewy speaks some weird language she made up, if that helps at all. However, if you have a high number of posts and the majority of them are not in English, don't expect to be posting much longer.

Post subject:  Re: Rules

Free discussion of any of these rules is welcome in The Office. If something seems unfair to you, or has not been made clear, create a new thread in The Office, and we will work with you to help. However, we ask that only reasonable suggestions be made for any necessary amendments to the rules. An example of a reasonable suggestion:

"Rules for moderators seem too lenient. Mods should take their jobs more seriously and do ... such and such, etc." [Note to mods: If this suggestion is ever made, outside of this example, don't take it personally; unless is it clearly meant to be received as such because the author is an asshole. Then you can ban him and we'll have a good laugh.]

An example of an unreasonable request:

"Rules for signatures that stretch the forum is too strict! My signature image is 7.1 megapixels, but only 340KB. I should be able to use it because it fits fine on my 60" HDTV."

The forum-specific rules have been updated to reflect the new forums. As always, you are responsible for reading and understanding these rules. Failure to do so isn't an excuse.

This post is to make a longstanding rule explicit.

Duplicate accounts are not allowed. Ever.
If you have more than one account and are in good standing, at the very minimum, you will lose access to all but one account. If you are not in good standing, all of them may be banned, and if you are using another account to circumvent a ban of any length for any reason, you will be permanently banned, including an IP ban. Circumventing an IP ban will result in an abuse report being filed with your ISP.
