SECTION 5: STAFF
One - Respect the staff. We ask you simply respect the staff. The majority of the staff here carries either a full time job or other full time obligations. I know for a fact several of us monitor The Siren Board throughout the work day. A couple of the staff members have invested our own money into the forums for the benefit of our members. Please be respectful as we try our best. If you have any concerns, please feel free to contact any of us.
Two - Reply to staff personal messages. If you break a rule, and a staff member PMs you, you are required to reply. We put a lot of effort into helping correct your posting habits. If we take the time to write you, we expect you to acknowledge that. Even if you simply reply "OK". When we do write you, its detailed and we always point you in the right direction. If you simply read, don"t reply, and your behavior fails to improve - we will show you the door.
Three - Report unruly staff members. If you run into a staff member that is being rude, aggressive, or disobeying the rules, we ask that you contact Matt. He can be private messaged at this link.
