Advertising Do not use WOGL forums to advertise any products or services, specifically any services that would be in direct competition or draw users from WOGL, or any links / images to sites that benefit yourself or outside representatives. Advertising within signatures is also prohibited. Team websites are permitted and encouraged to be posted. Appropriate Forum Keep all topics in their appropriate forums. If you're unsure of the proper location for your topic, post it in General Discussion. If you canâ€™t locate a thread you've made, use the search feature as it might have been moved to a more appropriate forum by a moderator Bypassing Censors Our forums are programmed with a list of words that are considered vulgar under any context, and these words are not allowed to be posted. Attempting to bypass the censor by misspelling, inserting spaces or symbols, transposing letters, using look-alike symbols, or any other method is not allowed. Additionally, certain words are prohibited from being used in topic titles and user information pages; bypassing the censor to post those words where they are restricted is also not allowed. Cheating Accusations Cheating accusations in the forums will not be tolerated. If you have a concern about cheating, please submit a ticket at the help center . If a person or team was in fact found cheating, calling them out or posting about it in the forums is not permitted, and you will be charged with a "Cheating Accusation" infraction. Evading Suspension Do not login or create a new account while suspended under any other account. Evading a suspension by logging into any account associated to you will result in the account being used for evading to be permanently banned and lengthen the suspension time of the original account. Position Applications Do not request information regarding your position application in the forums, you will be contacted once your application is read. Posting of Personal Information These issues are left to the discretion of the moderators and administrators, but may include pictures, addresses, phone numbers, or any material that is knowingly false, defamatory, misleading, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, racist, sexist, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy or that otherwise violates any law or encourages conduct constituting a criminal offense. This will also include posting of emails, IMs, PMs, Ticket System responses, or any other communications where at least one party had the impression of it being private.

Profile/PM System Abuse The rules listed in this document also apply to Profiles, Personal Messages (PM), videos, photos, comments, or any other content uploaded or posted on our website. Redundant Threads Before posting a thread, use the search feature to ensure there is not already a thread on the same topic. If there is already a thread, please use it as there may already be several replies with good information about your topic. Report Post Feature Using the report post button located within each post generates an email to the forum moderators / administrators. If you come across a post that you feel is violating any forum posting rules, feel free to use this feature, but keep in mind that abusing it will quickly get you this infraction, or ultimately banned from the forums. Rule Violation Threads and posts that violate the WOGL Forum Rules will be deleted from the forums, and additional penalties may be applied at the moderator's/administrator's discretion. Re-posting deleted violations (yours or those of others) is also considered a violation. All determinations of what is "acceptable" and "unacceptable" content will be determined solely by WOGL and whoever it designates as moderators. Sexually Explicit Content Sexually Explicit Content is defined as sexually suggestive and/or nearly-nude images, links, or content that may be deemed inappropriate by Moderators or Administrators. Signature/Avatar Restrictions Do not use signatures/avatars that request the banning/unbanning of users from ladders or forums, staff members to be fired, or utilize quickly flashing colors. All other forum posting rules apply to signatures. Abuse can result in a forum infraction, or ultimately the loss of signature privileges. Signature Limits The maximum width of any image(s) is 480 pixels. The maximum total height of any image(s) cannot be larger than 175 pixels in height. Spamming/Reputation Soliciting Spamming is characterized by the initiation of threads or posts that contribute nothing to a forum, be it on or off topic. Examples: empty bodies, bodies with few words that have no relation to the current thread or discussion (messages such as "first post", "hello" or â€œhey so & soâ€?), posts that state they are spam, bumping of old topics (without added contribution to the thread), multiple posts in a row, fad threads (such as who's better, rate me, etcâ€¦), or low content posts (posts without meaning are unnecessary and unacceptable). Posting for the sole purpose of asking for or giving reputation is not allowed and considered spamming as well. Thread/Post Recreation If any post gets deleted or locked, do not make a thread identical or similar to the locked one, or make a thread asking why the previous was deleted or locked. Trolling/Intentional Trolling Posts intended solely to annoy and/or offend other posters by going against the clear nature of a topic are not allowed.

Continual harassing behavior directed towards a certain individual or group with the intent of creating an intimidating, offensive or hostile environment within the forums will not be tolerated. This will also include demeaning or derogatory comments directed towards WOGL staff. If you have a complaint or an issue with a staff member or any aspect of the WOGL site, submit a ticket the help center Infraction System Terms of Service Violation of these rules can result in the suspension or loss of your account.
