Mixmakers.net Forum Rules Here at Mixmakers.net, your #1 Source for Sports Media and Discussion, we want to have a friendly, sociable environment where everybody can post freely. But with the word free comes regulations, and it is necessary to set some rules and clarify others. Posting Please post in an intelligent manner. Keep slang usage and profanity to a minimum, we want to strive for effective communication. You are free to discuss religion, politics, and race, but PLEASE do so wisely. Do not insult other members based on their race, religion, or political views. We like discussions, we do not like tirades. Profanity is accepted on this site, just please try to use it sparingly. Certain words are censored, please do not try to circumvent the censor, doing so is a punishable action. Off topic posts/Spam: Please post on-topic in each thread. Please limit the use of pictures or one word posts in threads. This includes laughing (or LORFing) at other members’ posts with no explanation. Off-topic posts are punishable by moderators. Whether you get a warning, infraction, or ban is completely up to them. Insults: Please do not insult other members. Unfortunately, we cannot regulate stupidity, but we can regulate posts, so if someone says Troy Murphy is the best PF in the league, leave them to their opinion. We consider personal attacks and name calling insults and they are punishable. Trolling/Baiting: We consider posting foolishness and instigating to elicit a response from other members trolling or baiting. We do not permit this and it is punishable by moderators. Sharing: Sharing is caring on Mixmakers.net, but there are some things that we do not care for you to share. Do NOT share Better Basketball, the Vertical Project, or similar videos on this site. Doing so can get you a ban quick. Also, do not share full albums or movies or pornography on this site. We do tolerate picture posting of clothed women, but posting of children under the age of 18 in very little clothing will absolutely not be tolerated. Language: Please post in English only. This is a very diverse site, but we only speak one language here. Posting in other languages is likely to get you a warning from a moderator. Advertising: Please consult with a moderator first if you want to advertise something. For the most part, we do not permit advertising on this site. User Groups VIPs VIPs are denoted by green usernames. Do not ask to become a VIP. VIPs are hand selected by moderators and other VIPs due to their contributions on this forum. We prefer to keep the list small and you have to earn your keep. Administrators/Moderators We administrators and moderators are here to make posting enjoyable and suitable. We are held to the same posting standards as you regular members. If you received some kind of discipline that you do not agree with, private message a moderator and discuss it politely. If you have a qualm with a moderator, please message an administrator. Moderators have bold, black names, Administrators have bold, blue names. Forum Leaders have the same privileges as moderators but for only a specific section. Donators Donators have purple screen names. If you would like to become a donator, PM a mod. Donators will also receive VIP status. Untouchable Productions UP members are denoted by red usernames. They are Mixmakers hand selected crew. Graphics artists, mixers, and cappers/uploaders make up this crew. If you are interested in being apart of Untouchable Productions, pm a moderator or an administrator.

Blog Team The blog team consists of writers for this site, generally guys who review movies, games, or write articles. They have orange usernames. If you are interested in joining the blog team, PM a moderator or administrator. You will receive VIP status and a larger avatar as well. Discipline Moderators act subjectively, punishing as they see necessary. Usually, minor offenses will lead to warnings or infractions. If you rack up enough of these, you can find yourself on vacation real quick. After the first ban, if you continue to act in the same fashion, you may lose your privileges to this site altogether. We also do not allow multiple accounts on this site. If you have multiple accounts, you will be banned. If you are banned and come back on a new account, you risk being permanently banned. Points We have a points system in place to help give incentives to the people who work hard to keep this site going. You can earn points by receiving donations from other members, betting, as well as just posting. The points can be redeemed in the Market for profile options, such as custom usertitles, username changes, gifts, and other customization options. Please do not abuse the points system or you will be banned. Thanks We also have a thanks system in place to express your gratitude quickly. Please do not abuse the thanks system or you will be banned. For the most part we are a laid back community. This site only runs off of the kindness of others, so please be respectful to your peers. If members are being disrespectful, please report posts and a moderator will take care of it. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please visit the Contact Us section. Enjoy your time here!
