Advertising Websites
Advertising websites is prohibited in posts and new threads. Anyone who makes a post JUST to advertise a website will have that website URL banned from WeW. (To clarify, if the URL to the site is not needed and you can post the contents, don't try to force users to go to that URL.) This means that everytime you post or try to link to that website (in a post or signature), it will appear as an asterisk.
Please be asure that any sort of Publicity, will not go unpunished, and the appropriative actions shall be taken.

NOTE: This not only applies to threads and posts, but to 'Private Messages' (PMs) as well. If you PM a user or many users, and an admin is informed somehow, you are liable to be banned. If need be, an administrator may read a PM if he feels it is against this rule, or the receiver feels the admin should read the PM contents.

Spam is classified in a number of ways. It can be:

  • Useless posts
  • Reviving a dead topic (something older than a month and on page 3, for instance)
  • A short, uneducated reply
  • A reply agreeing with someone, yet posting no actual opinion
  • A post that breaks a rule

Those are some common spam posts. Basically, do not break a rule and do not post ignorant messages and make your posts HAVE a point. Don't start a new thread asking a question you could easily find by yourself. Don't start new threads asking others their opinion when you don't answer it yourself. Don't make new threads posting a news story (this especially goes for the wrestling and sports forums) and then having no opinion on it -- why post something you don't actually care about? You should also give a source NAME, but not necessarily a link.

Double Posting
A double post is what it means: a user has posted twice in a row. To avoid this, use the edit button. Right now. Thus, if you make a reply and no one else replies for 61 minutes and you return and want to add something to your previous post, you MUST edit it as it is past the hour. Remember that -- double posting is a form of spamming.

NOTE: Double posting will likely result in warnings, if you shall have too many warnings, you will recive bans.[/url].

A "flame" is when you insult someone. Here at World Extreme Wrestling we try to have a community where you can freely express your views without too much moderation, but at the same time we do not want your views if it can offend another member. Now, we do not read EVERY single post on the forum, but we try. If a flame is nothing to do with race, sexuality, family members, or threats (such as killing) chances are it's probably not a bad insult.

NOTE: Insulting or Unessesary "coments" result in warnings, if you shall have too many warnings, you will recive bans.

Insulting staff
Insulting a staff member may result in a ban. Some staff members do not care if you insult him or her, but others do, so don't try to insult a staff member because you don't know what the outcome will be.

NOTE: Insulting a staff member result in warnings, if you shall have too many warnings, you will recive bans..

Staff editing rights
Any staff member has the right to edit any post he or she feels is inappropriate (against the rules, for instance). If a moderator edits your post and you feel that it was in no way "harmful" to anyone, you should contact an administrator.

Allowed images
There should be no nudity whatsoever on Wrestling Forums. Naturally, this includes any sexual content. All images from rotten.com or any website that contains any such images shall not be posted. Anyone posting these images are liable to be banned. Also, sites that are made to contain disgusting images, such as "Tubgirl," are forbidden. Anyone who posts ANY disturbing images such as the aforementioned will be banned.

SECTION: User Options

Signature limits
Most people have signatures with an image or two. This is common, so there must be some rules regarding signature size:

  • Image width should not be more than 800 pixels
  • Image height should not be more than 500 pixels
  • If you have an image that is 800 x 500 (width times height, in pixels), you cannot have another image in your signature
  • If you have an image or images that have a total of 500 x 400 (width times height, in pixels), you cannot have any lines of text in your signature
  • You may have two or more signature images if the height of both does not exceed 400 pixels in height
  • Preferred (but not required) image size: 470 x 150
  • Maximum file size of any combination of images: 700,000 bytes
  • You cannot have more than 25 lines of text in your sig if you choose to use no images
  • You cannot have more than 8 total lines on a drop-down menu
  • You cannot use an image that shows violence if it is not wrestling related in your avatar or signature.
NOTE: Lines of text is based on the screen resolution of 1024 x 768, which is currently the standard size for the average user.

Here is a sample of how big your images can be combined, and how many lines of text you can have:


If your signature is within those guidelines, you should be okay.

NOTE: Nudity is not allowed in signature images.

Signature advertisements
Recently World Extreme Wrestling has been invented. As a result, members are trying to capitalize by advertising sites as having nudity or hardcore pornographic content. This is not acceptable and all signatures relating to such cheap advertisements will be removed. If complaints, arguments, or disrespect of this rule is presented, your site and your account could be banned from W.E. Wrestling.

Signature text
Signatures and their content is shown after each of your posts, and therefore the text must not be offensive. Like posting, it cannot involve racism, sexism, or insults towards someone's sexuality.

The amount of text you are allowed to have in a signature is not by character limit, but by size. If your signature contains no images, you can use a maximum of 25 lines (example shown above). However, with an image or images, you cannot exceed the 400 pixels limit, including the lines of text your sig includes. Each line of text is about 16 pixels in height. (Example: You have two images that take up 300 pixels in height, you would not use more than 6 lines of text.)

Registered users may have avatars up to 150 x 150 (width times height, in pixels) with a maximum size of 35,000 bytes. Avatars with nudity or offending content (racism, offensive towards religion, criminal behavior, etc.) will be removed. Be considerate of others.

Profile fields (IMPORTANT)
"Profile fields" are found in your User CP Edit Profile area, under "Profile."

SECTION: Advertisements

Advertisements Complaints
Too often there are complaints posted across various forums complaining about the advertisements, both pop-ups and banner ads or text, here on W.E. Wrestling, for example is a free forum, so we cannot delete any form of Publicity, if the forum becomes a major factor in many peoples life, I shall by a professional forum. Ads are easy to avoid, but we would naturally prefer you to keep them on. However, as a result of lack of participation, there are more pop-up ads. If people would actually click on the pop-up ads or ad banners, there would be less pop-ups and banner ads. Just a thought.

Expected from the staff
Who is the current staff?
For a list of all administrators, super moderators, and moderators you can check out this page: Mods.

What can staff do?
Administrators have the power to do anything -- see your IP address, IP ban, appoint moderators, make new forums, edit forums, edit threads, edit users, ban users, and a whole list of other things.

Moderators can only edit, move, lock, and delete threads in forums they moderate, as opposed to administrators who have control of all forums. To see what moderator moderates what forum, you can look on the index page or check the Staff page mentioned above. Some mods, but not all, also have the power to ban.

NOTE: All staff members who can ban can do so for any reason he or she wants, whether it is breaking the rules or a dislike in attitude.

That just about covers all the rules. Rules are likely to change, but chances are if they are changed, an announcement will be made. If you feel something should be added to these rules, please PM what you think to Administrator.
