As decided by the community, this policy is now in effect.

winbolo.net moderation policy:
This policy is intended to create a free and open forum, with minimal restrictions. This is a 'living' document and will continue to be updated as required.

- Moderators (mods) may move topics to a different forum if it is posted in the wrong forum.
- Mods can post new topics in the news forum to appear on the front page of the site.
- Mods must make a comment saying that "moved by XYZ" or "locked by XYZ" and provide rationale when needed.
- Mods may lock topics that are inappropriate*, with mod vote to unlock.
- No posting of illegal material or material that may be inappropriate* to younger people.
- No posting on specific methods on how to cheat/hack related to winbolo.
- Mods will be able to move inappropriate* threads to a moderator-only forum for discussion and if it should be moved back.
- Posts for "deletion" will be kept in the mod-only forum for future reference (and thus not really deleted, just removed from general view).
- Specific posts (when in otherwise fine thread) can ONLY be edited by a mod if a original copy is created in mod-only forum and voted upon. The edited post needs specific rationale.
- Mods who break policy will get a chance to explain their rationale to other mods, and get one warning before mod status is taken away.
- Elvis makes final decision on removal/addition of mods, but mods can take their own 'non-binding vote'. Elvis may choose to warn only for minor policy breaks.

Moderator voting:
- Mods will each have a single vote for each case, majority vote wins, with a quorum (minimum) of three moderators participating.
- Mods will have a minimum of one (1) week to cast a vote, and longer periods can be specified when the vote is started.
- Elvis will have veto and tie-breaker votes, as well as ability to change this policy at any time.
- If vote is 'to keep', the original post/thread will be returned to forum.

* Inappropriate content examples
- Advertisements or spam for things not bolo related.
- Porn, warez, cracks, serials, etc.
- Links to viruses or other computer damaging websites.
- Double messages (second message can be deleted or moved to mod-only).
