General Posting Rules
1.1 – No “Flaming”: Please do not post any messages that harass, insult, belittle, threaten or flame another member or guest. Abusive behavior will not be tolerated and your account may be suspended. Please refrain from potty mouth language. Under certain circumstances (extremely aggressive insulting or trollish language), the administration reserves the right to publish your email address and IP address if your account is banned for violation of this rule.
1.3 – No “Spamming”. Casino ads are no longer permitted anywhere in our forum – sorry. You may post “want ads” or sell your domains or websites in the “Strictly Commercial” section, but promos and spam (or cloaked ads) will be removed. Also, please do not mass-PM or mass-email multiple members of this site the same message. When in doubt, ask! ATTN: Spammers will be dragged out into the street and shot. Shills be warned. Spammers and shills who violate this rule will have their email addresses and IPs posted in public view. You’ve been warned.
1.4 – No posting of privileged information. Please remember to respect other’s privacy. In the public forum, do not post real names, email addresses, or other personal identifiers that may be considered privileged information; to include company “trade secrets”, screenshots of company information, etc. If these items are already publicly available, this shouldn’t be a problem. But if these are from private correspondence, or from some user database, discretion is advised.
1.5 – No “Offensive” Posts, Links or Images: Please do not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-orientated, hateful, threatening, racist, sexist, discriminatory, or otherwise violative of any local or international laws. This includes links in your signature, profile, bookmarks as well as posted images, photos and avatars. The moderators will ultimately decide if something is appropriate or not.
1.6 – No “Libelous” Posts. Do not make posts that could be considered libelous, defamatory, or posting merely to cause harm to another’s business. Opinions are expected, but do not attack others with accusations of criminal activity unless this has been proven in a court of law.
1.7 – No posting of copyrighted material. Do not post entire articles of copyrighted material. Please provide an excerpt, synopsis, and/or a link. Postings become the property of Casinomeister.com when posted. Any copying and pasting of posts from this forum to others should be done with explicit permission or with discretion, (i.e. press releases, jokes, other information that is in the public domain are to be used freely). Also, do not post copies of postings/threads from other forums unless you have explicit permission to do so. When in doubt, ask.
1.9 – Do not register an account fraudulently. Fraudulent accounts are defined as accounts created specifically to flame others (hiding behind a mask of anonymity), or accounts opened primarily to spam the board, act as shills, trolls, sock puppets, or any other anti-social behavior. Do not register more than one account in the forum. Additional accounts will be deemed as bogus, and you may find yourself out on the sidewalk lying on your back staring at the stars. If you share a computer with another member (boyfriend, girlfriend, pet goldfish…), please let us know so that we won’t suspect you of being dodgy.
1.11 – Please do not exploit this board to promote your own personal agenda. If the moderators (and members) feel that you are spamming the board with links or ad copy to your website, harassing members with agenda laden posts, or consistently ragging on a casino that did you wrong, etc., your account may be suspended.
1.13 – “Conversations are more or less Private Messages – they can be personal – so please don’t post these with out the permission of others in your “conversation”. Personal matters should be kept personal. Abuse this function and you will find it disabled.
1.14 – No Trolls. Trolls are jerks whose sole purpose in a forum is to cause mental grief to others. If you are posting caustic, passive aggressive annoying crap, baiting others with the intention of getting an emotional response, you will be spanked or pummeled with the “ban-hammer.” Be cool – don’t be a troll.
1.15 – Do not hijack threads. If you have something to say – say it, but please respect the other members by keeping threads “on track”. If you have an issue that needs addressing, then please start another thread. Hijacking threads for your own agenda is not only rude, it is troll-like and can lead to a suspension.
1.16 – Gambling Systems. For some reason, there are people who believe that the membership consists of morons. The members may be a lot of things, but stupid they ain’t. If you attempt to sell a gambling “system”, you will be publicly ridiculed and harassed until we’re bored with you. You’ll then be banished to Never Land where you can play with Tinker Bell and all the magical fairies. You’ll be a happier person there.
1.17 – Exploiting Your Membership Do not threaten casino operations with blackmail. Mentioning that you are a member is fine, but don’t try to instill fear in a casino operation by threatening to post bad reviews or roguing them. Leave the roguing to Casinomeister – it’s tricky business and not for amateurs. Do not badger casino reps for bonuses or other perks. Casino reps are here to either solve problems are provide information. They are not here to be exploited.
1.18 – Don’t be a PITA Members who just don’t have a clue on what is socially acceptable, or are just too annoying will have their accounts closed. The administration and moderators of Casinomeister reserve the right to close accounts at our discretion. This may be a public forum that encourages freedom of expression, but it’s still our house. Abuse it and lose it.
1.19 – Posting defamatory comments or conducting malicious attacks directed at Casinomeister: members who slander, post defamatory comments or other personal garbage directed toward the Casinomeister brand, its owner, employees, or moderators, anywhere on the Internet will be swiftly booted from the site. Spamming, DDoS attacks, or any other criminal activity will be dealt with as well.
1.20 – Threatening or abusive behavior: members who threaten or abuse casino representatives or their staff will be booted from the forum. This goes for anywhere off-site. Act like an a-hole – get treated like one.
WARNING!! ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY
2.1 – Complaints against casinos or pokerrooms will only be posted in the “Online Casino and Poker Complaints” section and within the appropriate forum.
2.2 – Do not post a complaint without notifying the appropriate casino representative here. If you cannot locate the appropriate casino rep, please inform us by stating so in your initial post. FAILURE TO NOTIFY THE CASINO REP MAY JEOPARDIZE YOUR ACCOUNT.
2.3 – Ensure your complaint is free from offensive or abusive language, and that the complaint is tactful and truthful. Making false claims are grounds for banishment or drawn and quartering.
2.4 – Casinomeister does not condone player fraud in any shape or form. If you knowingly commit fraud (creating bogus casino accounts, using fake IDs, committing Credit Card fraud, chargebacks, etc.) you will be permanently banned from the forum.
We have a strict no tolerance policy. If you break any of the posting complaints rules, you may find your account closed with prejudice.

4.3 – Pseudo Signatures Members who post “pseudo” signatures (fake signatures) will have them removed. These members will be spanked. Don’t do it.
4.4 – Linked Websites The linked pages must not advertise casinos listed in the Rogue Pit. If Casinomeister subsequently rogues a casino, a webmaster is not obligated to remove that casino but will seriously consider its positioning.
Strategy and System pages must not claim or imply that a player can beat a game with a house edge with this system or strategy. This refers to the Casinomeister Philosophy that all systems are bogus.
The websites linked via the signatures will not have any content that can be considered “offensive” (see rule 1.5). Linked-to sites must display ethical behavior. If members find questionable links, please contact Linkmeister Webzcas who will review the site.
Please refer to the membership permissions to see what is available in this forum for each level of membership. The more you participate, the more you get – simple as that.
Membership is based on length of being a member of this forum and participation. The membership is organized as such:
Newbie: This is the basic user account. Users can post, view and upload images and have full access to the public areas. This is a basic account which has many limitations.
Fully Registered: Once a member has either 50 reputation points or 50 posts and has been registered for at least 90 days, the membership becomes “Fully Registered“. These members have full usage of the public areas, and are able to create personal albums, join social groups, join the “Webmeister” user group, and blog.
Experienced Member: Once you have either 200 reputation points or 100 posts and have been registered for at least 365 days, the membership becomes “Experienced“. These members have a number of more capabilities in the forum.
Senior Member: is for members with 1000 reputation points or 500 posts and have been registered for two years – they become a “Senior Member“.
Meister Member: Once a member has 5000 reputation points or 1000 posts and have been registered for four years – they become a “Meister Member“.
Ueber Meister Member: Once a member has 5000 reputation points or 1000 posts and have been registered for seven years – they become an “Ueber Meister Member“.
Less than Zero: These are members who have been given enough “negative” reputation points or infractions that they become “Less than Zero”. These accounts are pretty much hobbled – can’t search the forum, can’t post in the complaints section, can’t start threads, and can’t use the PM or email functions as well. They are also ridiculed by their fellow forum members. You might as well be banned. Even though it’s only for a limited time (a few days to a month), you don’t want to become “less than zero”.
Webby – this is a secondary membership that anyone can join. This is meant for beginning webmasters and gives you access to the Webmeister section. You can join this in your user profile.
Webmeister – this is for Full Members and above. This gives you access to the Webmeister section and you are allowed to use URLs in your signature.
i-Gaming Representatives, Accredited Casino reps, and Affiliate Managers have additional permissions.
