This game contains channel rules by VideoGamePhenom. VideoGamePhenom made a set of commenting rules on order to prevent mishaps and other violations. Because VGP owns nearly thousands of videos, comments come one after another, but don't always come clean. Listed below are some rules before commenting to help keep the VGP community clean.
List of channel rulesEdit
To do: List penalties for violating these rules, whether it is warning first and then block, or immediate block, and then for how long the block will last.
- Feel free to share your thoughts:
After watching the video, sharing your thoughts of what you saw is always the quality standard.
- Do not post any offensive or unkind comments:
Do not insult this user by saying "cheater" or "hacker" for example.
- Do not spam:
Everyone hates spam. Do not post comments that consist spamming or gibberish, which can likely mean you're only try to attract attention for yourself. More ever, do not post unwanted comments, like "first" for example, because it doesn't matter who comments first, even if the video has no comments yet.
-Warning, can lead to a block if further violated.
- No inappropriate language:
Try to keep everything around a clean environment. Do not post comments that consist vulgarism, racism, sexism, anti-gay slurs, bigotry, homophobia, transphobia, religion bashing, or antisemitism.
- No advertising:
Do not post URLs in any video which may consist advertising. Sometimes, advertising could lead to harmful downloads.
- English please:
This user is a native speaker of and solely understands the English language. If you post a comment in any language other than English, it will be translated for review.
-Translated for review, and will be given any of the other penalties if any of the other rules are violated. If it is written in another language to intentionally troll, it could lead to a warning.
- No phishing:
This consists trying to obtain sensitive information such as other usernames, passwords, and other financial details for malicious reasons. Phishing is absolutely not allowed. Violating this rule could be reported and will likely lead to an immediate block.
-Immediate indefinite block.
- DO NOT post any personal or confidential information:
Do not post any personal or confidential information that includes a person's real name, date of birth, place of birth, place of residence, identification number, financial information, and anything else beyond that. This matter is taken very seriously. Violating this rule could be reported and will likely lead to an immediate block.
-Immediate indefinite block.
- No threats:
This consists that you're attempting to harm someone. We take this matter very seriously. Violating this rule could be reported, lead to an immediate block, and legal action taken.
-Immediately block (VGP still needs to set a block length for this).
- Do not tell lies, slander, or post fake news:
Do not post news or events that are untrue to the public as this may lead to major confusion. If you are caught doing this, you may be reported, and your account could be blocked immediately.
-Immediate block (VGP still needs to set a block length for this).
- No impersonation:
Do not create an account that pretends to be VideoGamePhenom. Do not post comments while performing signature forgery of this user. If you are caught doing this, you will be reported.
-Immediate indefinite block of the impersonating account, being reported, and possible legal action taken as well.
- Do not comment only in capital letters:
Using only capital letters may think you're screaming or shouting in anger or in exclamation. This will not be tolerated. Any comments discovered solely in capital letters will be removed.
- No political statements:
Do not discuss or mention politics that work for any federal government. This could likely lead to jealousy and big-time debates.
-Small warning, but will lead to a block if continued. (note: block length still needs to be added)
- No arguing or debating in replies:
It's not always polite or fair to debate or argue when you're replying to the same user or anyone else who is in the conversation. This could lead to confusion, so please comment independently if you feel that you cannot reply properly.
- No copying and/or re-uploading content:
Do not use video downloading software to copy or pirate this user's videos without formal permission. If the video you uploaded deems to match and contain the same length as this user owns, it will be flagged and taken down.
- No inappropriate usernames:
Do not come to the VGP channel with usernames offending VGP itself or any known celebrity, company, etc. If you are caught with an offensive username, you will be reported.
- No doxing:
Do not post URLs or any content that may feature photos of a person in real life without express written consent of the person who owns them. If you are caught doing this, you may be reported, and your account could be blocked immediately.
- No block evading:
Please be precise and reasonable about this. If your account is blocked, and you are detected commenting with another account, that other account will be blocked immediately as well. It's OK to own multiple accounts, but not when you're breaking the rules.
-Immediate indefinite blocking of the sockpuppet account, and then maybe some further repercussions on the main account.
- DO NOT file false or erroneous legal claims:
This is a no-brainer. Do not flag videos or other content owned by VideoGamePhenom for copyright infringement for any illegitimate reason. This may represent that you're seeking revenge or trying to retaliate if anyone (especially VGP) blocks your account. This also represents Distributed Denial-of-Service Attack (DDoS) violation, as it attempts to take the video offline for illegitimate reasons. Only a real copyright company such as Nintendo, Viacom, or any third-party company counts to be legit to remove content for copyright. If you are deemed to be making false or erroneous claims yourself, you will be reported, and legal action could be taken as well.
- Do not trick others into breaking these rules:
If you try to trick anyone else into breaking these rules by accident, they won't get in trouble, but you will be exposed yourself, so don't do it.
ABSOLUTELY NO EXCEPTIONS! These rules equal trust and safety. If you feel that you cannot obey these rules properly, then you are not welcome to comment on any video VGP owns.
