This is the official 5Head Gaming Forum Rules Thread. These rules apply to every user of the forums regardless of rank. 

Severity Scale
As expected, not all rules will have the same repercussions as the severity of the rule fluctuates greatly from rule to rule. Thus, the management team has created a severity scale to easily show the consequences of breaking the rules. The scale goes as follows

Please note, repeat offenders will be moved a position down on the list to a more severe punishment. (Break a level 4 rule twice and you get a level 7-8 punishment)

These rules are minor and are generally due to mistakes rather than a malicious nature, due to this, the offenders are normally given a verbal warning and taught about their mistake. However if the incident is repeated then their warning level will increase and there may be post moderation.

These rules are generally more severe and offenders will not be given the original verbal warning but rather the initial warning level and in extreme cases banning of up to a day.

The rules under this category will often merit a ban of some kind if broken. The most severe punishment will often be up to three months or longer, however the standard (if it is neither a repeat offender nor extremely deliberate) is around one to two weeks.

General permanent ban, some cases will be reduced if the offender is repentant or very mistaken.

Permanent ban on the level of Kyle, Loop, Jaymo, etc.
