Forum Rules, CoC, Banning

I. Warnings & Bans

When a user violates a rule they will receive either receive a Warning, Temp Ban, or Perma Ban. This depends on the severity of the violation and which admin/mod is handing out the Warning or Ban. There is no rigid guideline here. It's completely up to the specific admin/mod handling the violation (except for obvious ones such as a User violating COPPA which results in a Perma ban)

II. Spam

Please avoid spamming. It's fine to double post IF NEEDED. 'Low-level' spam will most likely be met with a Warning. However if the user's account appears to be created for the sole purpose of spam, then the resulting consequence will most likely be a Perma Ban.

III. Content & Downloads

No graphical, sexual or illegal content of any kind. Do NOT post any download links that violate US Copyright Laws! That includes, but is not limited to, downloads of any games, or parts of games. If you post a thread that allows content to be downloaded, be certain you are complying with US Copyright Laws. Simple honest mistakes with downloads will most likely be met with a Warning. However, blatantly posting graphical, sexual and/or illegal content will most likely result in a Perma Ban.

IV. COPPA Compliance

COPPA is a law passed in the US in 2000. If you claim you are under 13 years of age, your account will be Perma Banned. Nobody is allowed to have an account if they are under 13 years of age.

V. Code of Conduct

Insulting/threatening others shall be prohibited. This will include PMs as well. The user receiving the insults/threads from another user via PM must provide some sort of evidence such as a screenshot. Punishment varies greatly here due to nuance.

VI. Privacy

This seems to be the biggest issue in the entire Mario Kart Wii community. Do not post other people's personal/private information unless you have their full consent. The term personal/private has some subjectivity, so let's apply some common sense here. Something such as a person's favorite color is not 'personal/private' under this rule. Something such as a person's Tax ID Number definitely is.

Violating this rule will result in a Perma Ban. Personal/private information includes (but is not limited to) last names, middle names, irl pictures/videos, links to irl social media accounts, government ID number(s), addresses, phone numbers, IP addresses, and location of residence. Information posted by a Forum Member that may not be conclusive to whether or not it's personal/private will result in a Warning. After the Warning, if said Forum Member posts that same in-question information again, this will result be a Perma Ban.

Also no 'half-leaks'. Basically half-leaks are leaking a hint or clue that can reveal (with average intelligence) something that is personal/private to a user.

VII. 'Gutting' Your Own Posts/Threads

No 'gutting' your own posts/threads. What does this mean? Well if a user submits posts and/or threads with content that is considered to be of valuable information, then later edits those posts to remove said content, then this is considered an attempt to wipe important MKWii history. This action will most likely result in a Perma Ban.

VIII. Reputation

The forums include a feature to give 'reputation/rep' to users. A user with higher rep is considered to be trustworthy while users with lower (negative rep) are not considered to be trustworthy. Therefore, this rep system is somewhat important and shouldn't be manipulated. 

Thus, any user downgrading another user's reputation for illegitimate purposes will most likely receive a Warning or Temp Ban.

IX. Discussing About Bans, Appealing Bans

It is NOT allowed to discuss any ban(s) here on the site unless it's via PM's. Doesn't matter if it's about your ban, somebody else's ban, a group ban, or any combination thereof. If you feel your Ban is 'unjust', PM me. You also have the option to PM me over discord - vega8365.

X. Bypassing Bans

Any user helping another user bypass a Ban will most likely receive a Perma Ban.

XI. Sub-Forums and/or Threads (by the Admin) w/ Extra Rules

Some sub-forums or threads that were created by the Admin (me), may have additional rules to follow. For example, the 'Make it to 1000' thread has a rule against double posting regardless of the reason. Be sure to read a thread's original post for additional rules. If an entire sub-forum has additional rules; there will be a sticky thread provided. Be sure to read that sticky thread. Violating any additional rules most likely result in a Warning.

XII. Discord Server

The rules are not just limited to these forums. They also apply to the's Discord Server.
