CODE OF CONDUCT
Below is a list of rules that explain the expected behavior of you and other users on this forum. Please note that the following guidelines and policies are not exhaustive and may not address all manner of offensive behavior. Therefore, the forum moderators have full discretion of addressing individuals who have engaged in behavior that is perceived as unloving or offensive. Your access to these forums is a “privilege,” and not a “right.” Christian Truthers reserves the right to suspend your access to these forums at any time for reasons that include, but are not necessarily limited to, your failure to abide by these guidelines.
We assess each person's violation on a case by case basis. This means that previous violations will be taken into account when determining the length of a suspension. Repeat violations, despite severity of each, will result in a permanent ban on the Christian Truthers site.
Christian Truthers and Moderators have elasticity when enforcing the rules. In other words, the “it wasn't written exactly in the rules” loophole is not an acceptable argument. If you do anything that is disruptive to the community you will be warned or banned.
Posting any information contrary to our "Beliefs" section will immediately be flagged as inappropriate. So please review them before engaging in fellowship in this setting.
SPAMMING AND TROLLING: This is broad and is not limited to the items mentioned below. Please review these before posting on the forums.

DO NOT HARASS, DEFAME, OR DENIGRATE OTHER MEMBERS: If you can't say it with genuine love... don’t say it at all. We are promoting a loving place for our family to feel welcome and encouraged. Insulting a member will get you banned from the forums. Insulting Christian Truthers or arguing with Moderators will have your forum account suspended or permanently banned. If you see a member that is potentially hacking please report it to a moderator.
"But the fruit of the Spirit are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness and self-control. Against such things, there is no law." -Galatians 5:22-23
NO RACIAL/ETHNIC/RELIGIOUS SLURS: Although discussion on the culture and migration of various ethnic groups may fall within the context of scriptural study, no racist comments will be tolerated within the forums.
NO OBSCENE/VIOLENT/SEXUAL/ALCOHOLIC/DRUG REFERENCES: Any content that is considered sexual in nature or content that contains any personal drug or alcohol references are not allowed on the forums. This includes any images, links or slang that we deem inappropriate. Moderators will remove all offensive images, links, and slang.
DO NOT MAKE REAL-LIFE THREATS: Threats not be tolerated. Personal (physical or spiritual) threats to other members will cause your account to be permanently banned on the forums and other potential social platforms.
DO NOT DISTRIBUTE REAL-LIFE PERSONAL INFORMATION: This includes releasing any real-life information about other members or Christian Truthers moderators without their consent. Doing so will cause your account to be permanently banned on the forums.
POSTING CHEATS, HACKS, TROJAN HORSES, OR MALICIOUS PROGRAMS: Posting links to cheats, hacks, or malicious viruses/programs will get you permanently banned from the forums.
INAPPROPRIATE LANGUAGE: Intentionally bypassing the curse censorship will result in a warning, infraction or possible ban. Images, videos, links to anything outside the forum that contains any inappropriate language needs to be censored completely. This also includes any use of inappropriate language, just because it’s not censored doesn’t mean it’s safe to use.
DO NOT CREATE DUPLICATE THREADS OR CROSS LINK THEM: Don't create threads just to link them to another one. Additionally, if your thread was previously locked do not try to create another one unless you have the consent of the moderator who locked your thread.
NO ADVERTISING ON THE FORUMS: Advertisement of any kind, possible malicious websites, and anything that tries to urge members to pay/join is prohibited. Members may enjoy posting discussion topics about other ministries where relevant. Members are welcome to post their artwork, images and videos from another website; however, excessively linking, posting images and urging other members to click advertisements is not allowed.
NO CIRCUMVENTING A SUSPENSION/BAN: You do the crime you do the time… be patient and just wait for your ban to be lifted. Any form of ban dodging while your account is suspended will automatically result in a permanent ban on your main account, your ban dodging account, along with any accounts you make in the future. If you were permanently banned all of your accounts will be deleted. This also includes posting on another account or having someone post on your behalf.
DO NOT HASSLE THE COMMUNITY ORGANIZER, MODERATORS OR CHRISTIAN TRUTHERS REPRESENTATIVES: If a rule was enforced on you and you have a question about it, you will need to submit a complaint to one of the Moderators. Do not create threads about how dissatisfied you are. We will not ban members unless there is enough evidence that they are violating these terms.
DATA MINING THE CLIENT AND POSTING ON THE FORUMS IS NOT ALLOWED: Data mining the client in an attempt to search for personal content and future project releases is not allowed to be discussed on our forums.
