[Closed] Nintendo Wire Forum Rules
Welcome to the Nintendo Wire Forums! Please take a look over our official forum rules and make sure you understand them before posting.
First off, the Nintendo Wire Forums have three tiers to our administration and moderation team: Editors, Contributors, and Moderators.
- Editors: These are members of the Nintendo Wire team responsible for editing and publishing all the content you see on the site. On the forums, they double as administrators and also have all the powers of a moderator. They can ban members, close and delete topics, and pretty much have an unfathomable amount of power.
- Contributors: These are also members of the Nintendo Wire team responsible for writing content you see on the site, so it's possible you may recognize some names. On the forums, they double as moderators.
- Moderators: These are volunteers that help out around the Nintendo Wire Forums. Occasionally, we may bring on more moderators, so keep your eyes peeled for any open moderation positions.
Now for the actual forum rules. Learn these like the back of your hand:
- No spam. All automated messages, advertisements or other types of spam will be deleted immediately.
- Post in relevant forums and subforums only. Messages posted in the wrong topic area will be removed and placed in the correct sub-forum by moderators. For example, if you're posting about a Wii U game in the Nintendo Switch Discussion forum, it'll be moved there by a moderator.
- Respect other members. No flaming or abusing fellow Nintendo Wire members. Members who continue to post inflammatory, abusive comments will be banned from Nintendo Wire.
- Harassment. No threats or harassment of other members will be tolerated. Any instance of threatening or harassing behavior is grounds for banning from the site.
- Adult content. No profanity or pornography will be tolerated. Posts containing adult material will be deleted, and those who post it will be banned from the site.
- Illegal content. No re-posting of copyrighted materials or other illegal content is allowed. Any posts containing illegal content or copyrighted materials will be deleted and the offending member issued a warning.
