In ATF we strive to be tolerant of peoples views and beliefs, to a point where it does not hinder the ATF style. I expect a common respect and a sense of pride to be shown between all members at all times, we are family after all.
In this I would expect that no one would be demeaning (definition: To lower the dignity of or lessen respect for someone) to another member. Please show respect to your family at times.
Political, Religious and Racial posts will NOT be tolerated in the forums, this includes racial jokes. These posts cause far more issues then they are worth and should be directed to a forum more geared toward handling these issues. We here in ATF are a diverse group of people looking for a common respect across ALL members.
NO RACIAL SLURS WILL BE TOLERATED
Posts that appear to cross that line will be reported by using the "report post" button at the bottom of a post for review. The admins will then review it and if they feel the post is not demeaning then it will be left alone. If said post is deemed to of crossed the line it will remain in the trash and disciplinary action will be sought for the poster, up to removal from the clan.
ATF has used the word "Homo" since its creation. This is a staple of this great family and no punishment shall be handed out for it usage. This word will NEVER be questioned as right or wrong for ATF.
Posting of porn / nudity of any kind is not allowed. This includes linking to off site material.
If you are posting something that you think is not safe for people to view at their workplace, label the Subject line with NWS (not work safe). This way people will know not open the thread unless they are away from family / coworkers that would be offended.
Flame wars i.e. starting arguments because you cannot control yourself will result in a demotion and or removal from the clan.
Signatures sizes must be 300 x 150 pixels or smaller and no more then 500kb in file size. They can also contain a SINGLE line of text that does not extend past 300 pixels wide. No exceptions are allowed to this rule.
All rules here are final, this isn't a democracy. Follow the rules we have all bled to create or find a new group of people to game with.
The most important part of our rules is respect and kindness to your fellow members. We are all from different parts of the world with differing ideas and beliefs and know where should those ideas be questioned.
