MTC Rules and Guidelines

1. The more posts you make, the more forums you can access.
There are some parts of MTC that are accessible to members who have reached a certain number amount of posts. By creating this requirement, MTC has achieved the following goals:

• Encourage casual visitors to register, thus increasing the total membership.
• Discourage leeching (or getting, without contributing) by requiring members to post.
• Improve interaction among members as a result in the increase in posts.

2. Newbies can introduce themselves at the Community Section of the website.

3. Newbies CANNOT start a new topic! You can only "REPLY" to existing topics.

4. You can only start a new TOPIC if you have made 10 sensible posts.
With rules 2,3,4, redundant posts like "my name is 2hot2handle..." will be minimized. There are already Topics like "Introduce Yourself" or "How did you hear about MTC" so that you can make your initial posts.

5. By joining MTC, you agree to the Usage Policy

6. In starting new topics, make sure of the following:

• A similar thread does not exist anywhere. If another thread already exist, replies will be divided and the topic will be less effective/informative. This will also result in a very cluttered section.
• Use an appropriate title. There will be more replies if you use the proper title (or subject). Additionally, those who are not interested in your subject won't be inconvenienced.
• Be detailed and precise in your message. Failure to do so will only result in follow-up questions or wrong replies caused by mis-interpretations.
• Linked and locked topics may be pruned regularly to reduce page clutter. If you have a question about where your topic went, please PM a Moderator or Administrator before starting a new topic asking where it went, or posting a duplicate of the original topic. We will be happy to provide you with a link to the new location, or a reason why it was locked and/or removed.

7. Unacceptable topics are as follows :

• Incest
• Rape
• Drug use and/or sale
• Minors/Pedophilia
• Bestiality
• Blatantly criminal activities (robbery, homicide, etc.)

Failure to do so will only result in follow-up questions or wrong replies caused by mis-interpretations.
Admins and Mods may delete topics that violate the above without prior notice.

8. Procedures on how to share and request for contact numbers.
If you have a phone number to share, do not post the actual number in the board. Just give a description of the person and ask those who are interested to Private Message (PM) you.

Distributing the number via PM has 3 benefits:

• You'll be able to keep track of the people you give the number to.
• You can choose whom to give the number to.
• In case of problems, we can trace the offending member and disable his account.


To those who want to get the phone number being shared:

• PM the member offering the number. Do not post... "PM me the number." This is stupid and unacceptable behavior.
• Contact the member by clicking one of the few buttons available for that purpose.
• If you are found to cause trouble, your account will be disabled.

• Public posting of phone numbers in any format (i.e. using letters in the place of numbers) is strictly prohibited. This includes using a phone number as a handle/nickname or including it in a signature.

9. Rules on Pictures and Graphics

12. General Behavior

Having fun is good. We like fun. Please keep it positive and polite. We may take action against posts and/or topics that could cause unrest in the community beyond a civil and polite disagreement.

You may not make personal attacks on other users or staff members either in public forums or private messages.

You may not advertise or promote other companies or their products which may compete with those of Manilatonight.com

We reserve the right to ban any member who violates our guidelines or disrupts our community. We will be fair and provide warning in most cases.

Private Messages received on these Forums are to be considered private and are not to be posted publicly unless the sender of the private message agrees.

If you have an issue concerning our services, policies, or staff, please use a personal contact method such as a private message or email to a staff member. All moderators, administrators, and support staff are highlighted in the active members list. We take serious complaints to heart and will do our best to address them.

There will be no racial, ethnic, gender based insults or any other personal discriminations.

There will be no posts meant to offend or hurt any other member, in a manner which is offensive or inflammatory.

Spamming is not permitted; please keep all your posts as constructive as possible.

Users may not argue a moderators decision publicly. Any and all complaints directed at a moderator must first address the moderator in question via PM. If the problem can not be resolved, then the moderator and user must send their positions to the forum admin. The forum admin will make or change any and/or all final decisions.

Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other topics and see where your topic should go. If your topic is placed in the wrong forum, it will be moved by a moderator. The same rule holds for individual posts. If a posts is found to be off topic it will be deleted without warning by our moderators so post wisely.

If a topic is recognized as being posted in the wrong forum, or if the post is a violation of our guidelines then please contact a moderator either via PM or the 'report post to moderator' feature; please do not respond publicly to the member - a member of staff will do what is required upon contact. Any person/s who attempt to present themselves as a Moderator by posting negatively to a member's topic (which has been posted in error and requires locking or moving to another forum) will be sent a PM warning and placed into moderation queue upon further actions.

About our Moderators: Forum Moderators are community volunteers that give up their time to help build a better community. They will assist with focusing topics and enforcing guidelines. They have the ability to edit/delete posts, to move, close or delete topics, and to temporarily moderate users’ posts. Our moderators are equipped with Kevlar flak jackets and an unlimited supply of admin bricks. Do not attempt to engage them in direct combat.
