Large clan league in the works! Seeking Division Admins & Tournament Staff.
So we figured we should do something fun on the forums. We've had ideas for tournaments in the past, but never gotten around to it. This league would be focusing on Mario Kart Wii at the start, but we might move over to Mario Kart 8 when that's releasing if we see a need for it, but until then we are planning to have a large clan league organized and hosted on our forums for Mario Kart Wii.
Now the staff might be busy with other things such as administrating and moderating these forums and as such this would in no way be organized and hosted solely by staff, we would look it over, but other people would be in large control of it as division admins and other tournament staff.
The league will be a pretty straightforward one, with different divisions based on skill level, think WCL season 1 and you have a pretty good idea of what it is about.
A separate sub-forum would be created in the tournament section as well as a global announcement when it's under way so that it would get big exposure.
A division admin's job would basically be to make their division go as smooth as possible. Any dispute between clans in that division would the division admin look over and try to solve and other things involving that division would be under the division admins responsibility.
All division admins would of course also be part of the tournament staff, but it's also a possibility to be in the tournament staff without being a division admin, as part of the tournament staff you would have a say in any change in the league such as rule changes and similar. Also in case we get certain evidence of someone hacking, the tournament staff would also look over that and other changes or issues about the tournament.
So anyway, if you want to be a part of this as a division admin or just in the tournament staff, please PM any member of staff saying whether you want to be division admin or just part of the tournament staff, it's great if you have organized successful tournaments in the past, but it's not a requirement. Just put forth good reasons to why you would be a good choice to be a part of this. The staff will then decide between those that apply.
Whether we will go through with this clan league depends on how many reliable people are willing to help out with it. But yeah, send any member of staff a PM if you're interested. Thanks.

These community rules have been established in the general interest of members. They have been created with one goal in mind: to make every member feel comfortable with their values. This list of rules represents the site in general; however each forum may impose additional rules. It is on the onus of the members to read and abide by these rules, as well as read the stickies for any additional information.
Spam is not permitted on the board. Posts which serve no purpose to a thread topic, one word/image/video/emoticon posts, or posts which otherwise don’t have any contribution are classed as spam. Similarly, threads with no real purpose or that only incite spam/flame replies are classed as spam. This rule is the same for VM’s, social groups, calendar events and other content-based areas of the site.
Swearing and bad language is not permitted. Everything can be expressed without bad language, so do not use it. Pictures, videos and other posts avoiding the swearing filter will be punished.
3. Double/Consecutive Posting
With the exception of legitimately bumping a topic, needing space for content or updating a Fan Fiction, double posting (and other variations) are not permitted. If you need to add something to a post, use the edit button. If you accidentally double-post due to a bad internet connection or something similar, you won’t be punished, but please delete your duplicate post(s).
4. Bumping Threads
Threads can be bumped if they serve a valid discussion, but otherwise bumping threads is not permitted. Examples of threads not to be bumped include ‘Introduce Yourself’ threads a month or older, threads that discuss events that are now over (‘Idol Winner 2007’, ‘Superbowl 2008 Results’ etc.) and threads that have had their discussion finished/have been discussed exhaustively. If you want to discuss something important that has already been discussed, but the old thread is no longer relevant, please make a new thread instead of bumping.
Advertising links in posts/threads is not permitted on the forum. This includes schemes to acquire free electronics and other items through referrals. If you are unsure what constitutes advertising, ask a staff member prior to posting it. Please note that advertising is a subjective issue; in general anything that directly affects the site or its reputation is considered advertising, but anything outside the site’s influence generally is not. Please don’t post links to video channels, blogs and the like either. Advertising other Mario Kart sites or forums is punished by a permanent ban.
6. Respect Moderator Decisions.
Threads and posts questioning the actions or decisions of forum moderations will be deleted on sight, and the appropriate action taken (up to and including forum bans) against the thread starter and/or participants. However, as a member you reserve the right to PM any moderator, supervisor or administrator regarding action taken.
7. Alternate Accounts/Sock Puppetry and Ban dodging.
Creating duplicate accounts is not permitted, except for extreme cases such as main account problems, in which case a staff member needs to be contacted immediately. Alternate accounts will be cleared and offenders dealt with harshly. If caught ban dodging the staff member that has banned you has all the right to increase the amount of time that you have been given in your ban.
No pornography, offensive or illegal images or links are permitted in signatures or avatars. Also, if the staff feel that signatures are possibly slowing internet connections with large/multiple images, they will be removed.
9. Warez/Illegal Media
Posts that violate or incite others to violate the law are not allowed. This includes (but is not limited to) requesting, providing, or instructing how to find, create, or use illegal copies of copyrighted software and related applications (including ROMs and ISOs).
Be respectful of copyright law in your posts. Reproducing substantive portions of copyrighted material without permission from the copyright owner is prohibited.
Pornography, and any other sexual content, will be locked/deleted immediately and offenders dealt with harshly. This is a friendly community and many users are young, so this is not permitted to any degree.
11. ‘Level Up’ Licences/Pokemon Signatures
Posts and threads about 'licences', 'Pokemons signatures' and leveling up your or other people's licences or Pokemon signatures are not permitted.
12. Insulting Other Members/Flaming
Fighting is not permitted. If you are flaming, arguing, insulting other members, purposely inciting arguments with them or just generally being rude to them, you will be dealt with harshly. Do not even do it as a joke, that is still against the forum rules.
Posting anything that's considered highly inappropriate is unacceptable. Sexual phrases or images can be punished. This is a kid friendly forum and it will remain that way.
The staff uphold these rules for the good of the community, and failure to abide by them will result in disciplinary action (infraction or ban) by the staff's judgement without prior warning or consent.
If you feel you've been unfairly punished, you can appeal to the decision by making a thread here: http://www.mariokartwii.com/f109/ All forum rules still apply there, so be mature and calm about it explaining for what you were punished and why you think you shouldn't have been. But please refrain from insulting anyone in your appeal.
These rules are subject to change, so please check back regularly for updates. If everyone follows these rules, it is for the benefit of the community, so please do so and enjoy your time on the boards!
