The Golden Rules

BareSkinAsia isn't run by rules, per se. Rather, it is moderated by people who put themselves in the position of making difficult judgment calls.

Most of these Guidelines are geared towards just improving the state of the website through smart tips. Some of these Guidelines are more prohibitive, however, and they function as rules.

? No trolling. Don't make posts that are inflammatory just to get people riled up. Substance is the key to not being labelled a troll.
? Attack the message, not the messenger. Criticize ideas, not people. Flaming will not be tolerated.
? No member is allowed to engage in public personal attacks on any other member.
? Personal attacks are defined as Personal, Racial, Ethnic, and/or Gender based insults, slurs, or derisive comments.
? All complaints need to be communicated privately using either PM, "Report this Post" feature and/or Email.
? In the event of this, the offending post will be edited or removed, and the offending party shall receive no more than two (2) private warnings via PM and/or Email, and one final Administration warning.
? If the behaviour continues, the member will be banned for a week, and upon a repeat incident, banned permanently.
? This will apply to all other community members as well.
? All we want is a little community kindness and no attacks. Let's all work together to accomplish this, eh?

NO PORNOGRAPHIC CONTENT

? No pornographic, sexually offensive, sexually explicit, or objectifying material. Simple rule. Administrator's judgment applies here. We are 100% naturist community and we should respect the lifestyle with its own purity. Sexually suggestive images will be heavily scrutinised.
? Do not post links or requests for torrent sites or any unlawful download links

? Always remember - Post in the right forum! If it's a question about naturism or nudism in Hongkong, post it in Hongkong section under Asian Naturism. Even if it's only humour, an observation, or angst, if it's about something that we have a forum for, post it there. Resist the temptation to post something off-topic because you think you'll get "better responses" in a particular forum.

? Respect the privacy of others. Do not post other's phone numbers, addresses, pictures, etc., without their permission.

? Each BareSkinAsia.com member may have only one account.

? Do not place foul language in thread subjects .

? Blatant advertising of any commercial products is not tolerated. We are not a marketing platform.

? And of course, NO SPAMMING. No commercial-oriented posts, and no flooding with useless content.

Compulsory Rules to be followed by every member of BareSkinAsia

? Use descriptive subject lines and research your post. This reduces the chances of double-posting, and it also makes it easier for people to see what they do/don't want to read. Also, scan the subjects of the last several days' posts to make sure you aren't duplicating posts. Also, consider what forum your topic should be posted in.
? Restrict the use of excessive foul language. Swearing will not be tolerated on this board at all. We aren?t saying you can't express your opinion, but there are ways to do so without swearing.
? No "Am I Hot or Not", "show me your girlfriend." etc. threads are strictly not allowed. There are several places for that already. The picture thread is OK and since we are a naturist/nudist community, we would love to see pictures of our members and their locality. All members needs to be respected. And remember, this is not a dating forum.

BareSkinAsia.com Signature Guidelines

We have come up with some general signature guidelines, and these will be enforced.

? Signatures will be no longer than 5 lines.
? Signatures may contain a link to your personal site.
? Signatures are expected to follow the same guidelines as posts, which means no flaming, no swearing, no personal attacks, and no adult material.

If you are seen violating these guidelines you will be asked once privately to change your signature. If you fail to comply, we will change it for you. These guidelines should be easy to understand and easy to follow. Thanks for your understanding in this matter, and have a nice day.

When Rule violations happen

Warning - This is where a public announcement is made that mentions your name and that you have broken a rule. We will determine whether you knew what you were doing was wrong or whether a warning is necessary to explain it to you.

Muting - This is where you are not able to talk on the board. You may still view it. Usually Mutes are given for 10 days.

Temporary Ban - This is where you are not able to view the board for a certain period of time. Temporary Ban period is for 2 weeks.

Permanent Ban - You can never again view the board.

The following rules list the most serious violations:

? No Hacking - This should go without saying, but you are not permitted to hack the board. Guessing someone else's password and succeeding counts as hacking. Members who hack will instantly be permanently banned without any warnings.
? No Discrimination, - You may not insult members based on their religion, race, sex, political beliefs, body features or whether they are gay or straight. This is worse than flaming, because it also hurts other members of the board who fall into the catagory you insult. BSA is a place where everyone is equal, and discrimination will NOT be tolerated!
? No Bullying - Do not pick on other members. The worst kind of bullying is where new members are picked on. This hurts the member as well as the board.
? No Flaming - Flaming harms the nice atmosphere of BSA. It also causes thread's to go off topic, and most importantly, it hurts the person being flamed. The victim may defend themselves against any accusations made to them, but may not make any additional accusations to the flamer (which also counts as flaming).
? No Profanity or Obscene Content - Such content does not belong on BSA. A censor system is in place as a backup. If you see words in your post being replaced with ****, you have done something wrong. Please edit your post and tone it down before your timer runs out. To edit a post, click the "Edit" button right below it. Cheating the censor system is against the rules.

? If you break one of these rules, the following penalties will apply (first time, second time, third time...) with the exception of breaking the rule "No Hacking" which immediately results in a permanent ban.


? There are no excuses for breaking the rules. It doesn't matter if you were angry at the time and weren't thinking straight. It doesn't matter if you were only kidding around. If you break a rule, it does the same damage, regardless of your reasons for breaking it, and you will be punished all the same.

? Staff abuse will not be tolerated. As a staff member, your job is to help the people, not harm them. You may only use your powers for the purposes that they have been given to you for. There is no limit on how much you may be punished for this severe offense as this must be stopped at all costs to protect the people. This means that if you abuse your powers, there is a good chance you will be permanently banned.

? Harassing the administration about punishments is not allowed. The admins are only trying to do their job, and many times they have to make difficult decisions. You may post your opinion in the thread that announces the punishment, so long as you do not flame anyone. If this thread gets out of hand, it will be closed, and you may not complain elsewhere on the board, or by other means including, but not limited to: private messages, instant messaging programs, email, telephone calls, and house visits. You also may not make threats against administrators (or other members for that matter). Punishments for harassment range from a 5 day mute for minor harassments to a permanent ban if serious threats are involved.
For breaking above rules you may be warned/banned appropriately!
