For now, though there will possibly be more changes... basically additions to the "Account Termination" section and some re-wording:


Account termination

A member will be removed from the EAB if they:
  • Post racist remarks
  • Post sexist remarks
  • Post homophobic remarks
  • Persistently troll specific users and/or projects
  • Personally attack other users
  • Have multiple accounts
  • Only posting in off-topic sections
  • Consistently derail topics
  • Are inactive in the forum
Posting racist, sexist or homophobic remarks:

The rules here are self-explanatory and reflect society. There is no place for this type of viewpoint on the forum. While it is your right to have these opinions, they are not welcome of the forums and will be dealt with immediately.

Persistently trolling specific users and/or projects:

By and large you will know that you are trolling as it’s a conscious decision you have likely made. Examples of trolling are posting remarks directed towards other members consistently that are negative, always trying to turn a discussion into the topic you wish to troll against.

Personal attacks:

As much as another member may annoy you, or has “wronged” you in another thread, this forum is not the place to carry out a vendetta against them. If you feel their remarks are out of order, report the post. DO NOT take matters into your own hands as this will likely lead to you receiving a ban regardless of if you were initially in the right or not.

Multiple accounts:

If you register a second account on the forum there is only one legitimate reason to do so, and that is you have lost your original account details and can no longer log in. In this instance when the new account is created immediately contact a global moderator or admin to make them aware, this way we can investigate the previous account to ensure it belongs to you and then furnish you with the details so the account can be accessed again. Once done, the new account will be deleted, leaving only the original account.

If you are creating a second account for any other reason, when discovered you will find all your accounts are banned and any further registrations using email address linked to those accounts or IP addresses will be banned.

Only posting in off-topic:

Check the name on the forum, English Amiga Board. If you aren’t here to post about the Amiga then you aren’t welcome. Off topic is an area for active members to post other interesting topics that do not fit under the Amiga banner, it is not for you to register and only post in. Posts do not count from this section so your account will automatically be deleted as described below under “inactive in the forum”.

Consistently derail topics:

While not a major issue as topics can veer off topic during the natural course of the discussion, however if you continually steer a discussion away from the subject or towards a topic that you wish to discuss, you will be warned. If you persist, other measures will be taken against you. To avoid this, raise your own thread on the subject rather than hijacking another similar topic.

Inactive in the forum:

Members that have not posted more than 10 posts after 6 months of being registered will automatically be deleted. This is fair warning and a reasonable amount of time to contribute 10 posts. In many other forums you have to post several times this amount to be even considered a member.
