but some of the main ones are listed below
Spamming: (in general):
Posting short, unhelpful comments (such as "cool", "nice acc," etc).
Flooding a forum with replies for the sole purpose of increasing post count. This may also be a permanent forum ban in certain forums, especially if deliberate.
Posting comments with little to no relevance to the topic
Bumping your thread more than once a day (To Include "Delete Bumping")
Accusing Someone of Scamming: without proof (text logs DO NOT COUNT AS PROOF)
Begging: asking for free RS items, RS accounts (etc) or asking for a rank or modship on Sythe.org
Grave Digging: This is self explanatory. If a thread hasn't had a post in several weeks or months. Don't post on it. (Exception: Spam Forum and some select threads. Use best discretion when posting.)
Asking for a Name Change
1 Week Ban
Advertising: Advertising a site in a post for the first offence will be a 1 week ban, further punishments may lead to a permanent ban. Includes links to other Markets, Gold farm sites, etc... If you wish to legitimately advertise your site on sythe.org then e-mail: [email protected]. Advertising Bots will be permanently banned.
1 Month Ban
Porn/Gore: posting pictures, videos, links to websites related to porn/extreme gore, etc. The staff will decide what constitutes porn or gore. It is not for you to decide. Steer clear of posting anything which could be interpreted as this.
Plagiarism: plagiarism (including the ripping of GFX and RS/User Ed Guides) results in a forum ban from the pertinent forum as well as a one month ban the first time it happens.
PIN Sales: Sale of membership Pins is strictly prohibited. Any discussion of this will be infracted. If it continues, you will be banned.
