Due to the amount of threads we get asking this, and me not wanting to put it in the main post, here is the ranks you get for posting in the forums:
- 1 - 25 New
- 26 - 99 Punching Wood
- 100 - 499 Chicken Slayer
- 500 - 999 Expert Survivalist
- 1000 + Wilderness Expert
Remember quality over quantity. Do not spam the forums to get a better rank. These ranks are NOT important and in no way impact on you getting on the whitelist. Post GOOD quality, informative posts that ADD something to the topic.
What is "Mini-Modding"?
The term "Mini-Modding" refers to someone pretending to be a Moderator. For example, if someone in the chat room yells out something like "HI GUYS!" some people will bounce on them by saying "Caps!". Or when someone spams the chat with repetitive phrases, some people will say "No spamming!" That is Mini-Modding and it will not be tolerated. Simply "report" the member on his/her profile page for breaking the rules.
What is "spam"?
While the term "spam" has different meanings in different contexts, at Punchwood "spam" is essentially "any content that is unwelcome" - including, but not limited to: advertisements, duplicate responses, caps-lock posts, obscene writing etc. If you see such content, please report it (or report the member responsible).
1) This includes multiple consecutive posts in the same thread (Use "Edit" to add more), pointless posts/threads that do not add to the topic (eg. "Cool", "Don't know it" etc).
2) Please refrain from posting in spam threads, as it makes it take longer to delete. Just ignore or use the report function.
3) Another common form of spam is consecutive or random numbers, letter, symbols, or emoticons that hold no specific meaning or value. (eg. "jhskjdghksjdg". "!!!!!!!!!!!!!!", " " etc).
How do I "report" a post?
At the bottom right-hand corner of every post, there should be a few options such as "multi-quote, quote, and report". Select the "report" option. In the text box, provide a brief description of what rule was broken and where. After that, just press send. To do this on a mobile device, you must first scroll down the bottom of the page and press "full version" and follow the instructions above.
NOTE: This is STRICTLY to report anything that breaks the rules and should not be used as any other form of communication with the staff.
ANOTHER NOTE: If the topic is a duplicate, please provide a link to the original topic either in the forum thread or the report.
How do I "report" a member?
On every member's profile page, there should be a "report this member" button. Scroll all the way down the screen and look to the bottom right-hand corner. Press the "report this member" button and provide a brief description as to what rule was broken and where it occurred. To do this on a mobile device, you must first scroll down the bottom of the page and press "full version" and follow the instructions above.
REMEMBER: Reports are only to be used to report things that break the rules and not a form of communication with the staff.
Someone broke the rules in chat, but there are no staff present! What do I do?
The best thing to do is take a screen-shot of the member breaking the rules, and including it in the report.
