Click on the button 'I Agree to these terms' below :
- You acknowledge that you have read these rules in their entirety ;
- You agree to comply fully with this rules ;
- You grant moderators of this forum the right to delete, move or edit any topic at any time.


Rule 1
Use common sense.

Rule 2
No profanity. If you are uncertain what word may be seen as profanity, then use some common sense and choose another word to get your point across.

Rule 3
Use some common courtesy and be civil when interacting with others, even if you disagree with them or are attacked by someone else first. If you are attacked outside of reason, let an Administrator or moderator (listed below) know and the matter will be taken care of.

Rule 4
Do not let arguments and heated discussions get out of hand. If the Admins and MODs feel that something is getting ridiculously out of hand, we'll ask that the matter be taken elsewhere (i.e. by email, chat, etc.) and the thread will be closed. If YOU feel that you are being unfairly treated, feel free to email or EZMail one of the administrators or moderators (listed below).

Rule 5
Do not bring personal arguments, whether from another board, email, instant messaging, or the "real" world into this board, please. No one else most likely knows what is going on, and we don't need mudslinging and name calling.

Rule 6
Do not post links to material that is unfit for this particular board.

Rule 7
Do not post links to material you do not own. This is not limited to only MP3's, but also pictures from other web sites, hotlinking to emoticons or avatars, etc.

Rule 8
Banning will not be a ban by username anymore, when we ban someone it will be a ban on their IP address. We are tired of the games that some people are playing. If you are banned and feel it is a mistake then please feel free to contact and Admin or MOD and plead your case to us. A banning is not 100% irreversible, but they are also not issued lightly or without significant consideration.

Rule 9
Polls are fine, but there will be a limit of two polls started, per day, by ANY member. If excessive polls become an issue, they will be moved to the Catacombs section.

Rule 10
I know this is the CHRISTIAN Metal Realm, and I know that the MAJORITY of us are Christians. But that does not mean that every single post has to turn into a theological study or biblical debate. Understand that if you are going to directly discuss religion, do it in the Bible Study Forum. If a thread is specifically about Universalism, keep it contained to that thread; if it is about Catholicism, keep it in that thread, and so on and so forth. Not because those ideas/religions are bad, but because that way it keeps the debate/discussion centered and focused. This is not new, and it is not meant to discriminate; it is simply meant to keep some people from feeling incredibly uncomfortable about opening up ANY thread to post. You will notice that the rest of that forum is pretty much general questions or prayer requests, not true debate. That is what I want, so that non-believers who are searching, or believers who are struggling can have an opportunity to ask questions and be open and honest and not be bashed over the head with "well, you should choose my belief because..." types of arguments.

Rule 11
Any and ALL political discussion, debate, ranting, and raving will be STRICTLY LIMITED to Ye Olde Political Realm. The administration/moderating staff will have FULL DISCRETION as to what is deemed to be of a political nature. This will be non-negotiable.

This is NOT A FLAME ROOM and shall not be treated as such. Due to the highly volatile nature of many of the political discussions recently, CMR rules will be strictly followed. Flaming will result in immediate closure (and possibly deletion) of the thread and active participants may face disciplinary actions, including banning from the CMR (temporarily or indefinite, at Staff's discretion).

If you can't live with these rules, stay out of the discussion. Posting here is a PRIVILEGE...NOT A RIGHT!

Thanks and God bless!
