Posting Rules

 

All of the Policies and Guidelines adhere and cover all areas of ToonTask, whether it be forums, profiles, or blogs.

 

Advertising Personal Sites/Forums: Please do not advertise external sites or forums within ToonTask.com. The exception to this rule is links to any Disney, Microsoft, and G-Rated other corporate-based websites. Embedded videos from approved hosting sites are allowed in the Downloads forum. The ToonTask.com Staff will look at any site for approval to be added to the exceptions list; however, the Staff can deny a website approval for any reason. We ask that any site that wishes change their intentions contact the Staff prior to this occuring. Although all content must be G-Rated within ToonTask.com, some of the websites, be it corporate-based or those that seek and gain approval, may contain sections and areas that are above our rating. We take no responsibility for the content, be it text, audio, imagery, etc., that is found on these sites. Clicking on these links is done so at the risk of the User.

 

Social Media and Networking: Posts, blogs, statuses, etc., that link to social media or networking sites will be removed. The only exception to this rule is official social media links from supported games, links to the Site's online presences, and pre-approved networking links. Each link must follow the same approval process that any personal site or forum does and is subject to denial at the discretion of the Staff. Passing of other site usernames and profiles through the use of ToonTask's communications methods is strictly prohibited and any User found in violation of this will face a punishment. If anyone asks you for personal information, please alert an Administrator or Moderator as soon as possible.

 

Signatures: Signatures may be no larger than 200 pixels high by 500 pixels wide. This rule is in place to show consideration to others while using the forums. If your signature exceeds 200 pixels in height, decrease your signature immediately. ToonTask’s Staff reserve the right to edit or delete any signature without warning or reason.

 

Inappropriate or Non G-Rated Material: Posts, blogs, etc. that contain, or make reference to, race, ethnic origin, religious belief, politics or orientational preference are not appropriate for this site. Also, posts containing foul language, or making reference to nudity, violence, or drug and alcohol use (or any other illegal substance), are not allowed within ToonTask. ToonTask Staff will edit or delete any item not adhering to this rule immediately, and will take appropriate action against the member, according to the severity of the offense. This rule applies to all movies or other material that is linked to or included in any blog.

 

Personal Information: Please do not UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES post, or ask for, personal information in these forums. The only personal information the Staff allows a User to reveal about themselves is that User's first name and unidentifiable person information, excluding age and age-related information. Personal information includes, but is not limited to, full names, cities, school names, friend’s full names/information, passwords, ages, account information, real life photos of yourself, real life videos of yourself and/or friends, or any information that could assist another person in locating you or stealing your identity. This includes, but is not limited to, passing this information to another through ToonTask’s Private Message (PM) system and anywhere within member profiles. If anyone asks you for personal information, please let an Administrator or Moderator know right away. This includes, but is not limited to, giving out email addresses, IM screen names, phone numbers, etc.

 

Flaming / Trolling: This is when a user intentionally disrupts a thread by posting inaccurate, inflammatory, or hateful comments. This is usually done with the desire to get a heated reaction from other posters. Keep in mind that this is a family site, and our forums are not meant for starting arguments. Whereas members may have a difference in opinion, be sure to keep comments appropriate and mindful of others' feelings.

 

Spamming/Annoying Posts: Spamming can be considered multiple things; but overall, spam is any post that does not follow or contribute to the subject matter of the original topic.

 

Sharing and Multiple Accounts: Members are only allowed to have one account. If you have more than one account, your additional accounts will be suspended indefinitely. Multiple members of a single household are encouraged to each have their own account, so that each may state opinions freely. Do not let others on your account ever. If they do something that is against the rules, your account could be suspended.

 

Personal Ads: Creating posts to advertise items for sale, services for hire, or soliciting dates is strictly prohibited. This site is not a dating service, nor is it a free classified ads section. This site is geared solely toward helping people advance through supported online games. Using it for monetary or personal gain is not an appropriate purpose.

 

The ToonTask Staff: The ToonTask Staff check all content for its compliance with the Policies and Guidelines, within reason, and dispenses disciplinary action at their sole discretion. The Staff have the final word on what constitutes appropriateness for the Site's intended audience. Public appeals on the forums are not tolerated and may result in further disciplinary action. Users who wish to advocate against an addition to the rules, an approved link, etc. should PM an Administrator or Moderator through the Personal Message system. Posts, statuses, etc., with the sole intention of bad-mouthing the Staff and their decisions will be removed and the situation will be dealt with through the usage of Personal Messages.

 

Users should not twist the rules and the Staff's intended meanings to suit their own personal agendas. Engaging in such activities is grounds for suspension.

 

If a User finds a post of questionable nature, said User should not, under any circumstances, take matters into their own hands. The User should notify an Administrator or Moderator by clicking the "Report" button located in each post, blog, profile, etc. Please include within the report should be a brief explanation of why you believe the item needs attention. Scolding of other Users will potentially result in punishment from the Staff. Remember - ToonTask is a safe and happy envrionment for all of our members and guests.

 

If you feel your punishment is harsh, you may appeal to the Staff member that gave you the warning, or contact Management.
