Rules & Contact

Welcome to Steampunk Rules:

1.) Harassment of any form is not tolerated. We understand that people will have disagreements and debates, but talking down to, belittling, name calling(or the implication of), and threats are prohibited. If anyone has any problems, PLEASE take it to an administrator or moderator as listed on this page. Take the high road, do not stoop to a harassers level. If no one is on at the moment, send a message to the inbox of Alexander Baker or Brielle Serra, and use the block function until we can take care of the situation. 

2.) If you are not a moderator, do not get involved in situations you are not directly involved in. Please go to a staff member, we are trained to handle these situations. Overstepping moderators or administrators can result in immediate reprisal.

 3.) As ning's minimum age is 13, we ask that the general rating for vulgarity, sex, and violence related topics be kept to a PG13 rating in the main chat before 2100(9 p.m.) North American Central time if no moderator is on. If a moderator is on, it is up to their discretion based on the ages of the members currently involved. All posts are to be kept to a PG13 rating unless they are in a closed private group with a warning about the content involved posted before one can join the group. Additionally, as a general guideline....keep it witty, clever, and veiled-think of the Victorians! They were not describing things in graphic detail, unless it was in private.
 
4.) If you have any concern about either of the above rules, or anything else, please take it to a moderator. If there is an issue, it will be temporarily handled by the moderator who is on or can get to it first, including a temporary suspension from chat or temporary ban from all site privileges if the situation is such that the person refuses to stop causing public issues. If the issue cannot be handled through talking it through with a moderator, depending upon severity of the issue it will be taken up either with one of the administrators or the entire staff ofwww.welcometosteampunk.com, who will at that time determine the necessary course of action, including permanent ban from the website. We will, however do everything possible to avert misunderstandings and come to a satisfactory resolution for everyone involved. All Staff members are listed at the bottom of this page.
 
5.)For smaller offenses(asked by a moderator to stop cursing ect), the member will always receive a verbal warning. If they do not stop upon this verbal warning, they will be banned for a day. Upon repeated issues of not listening to moderators, the ban may be extended to a week. If there are issues beyond this, it will be taken up with the staff and permanent ban will be up for discussion.
All rules are followed by ALL (Administration, moderators, members, visitors, etc.). Failure to follow the rules will receive instant repercussions.
 
 

Administration and Moderators will not abuse their power for any purpose. All judgments, punishments(except for those noted as temporary time outs as noted above), and changes to the site will be brought forth to all other administrators and moderators to be put forward to a vote.

The Administration of Welcome to Steampunk is devoted to making Steampunk a better experience for you. If there are any issues with any of the staff please first come directly to the staff member in question and if it cannot be resolved come to one of the other staff.
