    In order to keep the forums running as smoothly as possible, and to also ensure the most enjoyable viewing experience for our members, we have compiled a small list of basic rules:

    General Rules and Guidelines:
    • While we welcome discussing and debating issues, we will not tolerate insulting comments, personal attacks, slandering or intentionally argumentative posts (trolling).
    • Posting, emailing or private messaging with the intent to advertise or "spam" links is not permitted and will result in an instant ban.
    • Reviving old topics (bumping) is not allowed — continually doing so will result in your forum account being banned.
    • "Double-posting" is a no-no. Please wait an appropriate amount of time before replying to your own topic. There are unwritten exceptions to this rule, however. Please make use of the EDIT function rather than making a double-post.
    • Please refrain from excessive cursing and any attempt to evade the censored-words filter, these forums are aimed at audiences of all ages. Take a moment to review your message and decide if it would be suitable for younger visitors before posting.
    • Discussion of illegal activities such as file sharing, software and media piracy and intellectual property violations are not welcome here. This includes the discussion and exchanging of "CD-Keys" and "cracks".
    • Should be obvious, but porn is not welcome here. Please don't use pornographic pictures for signatures, avatars, on profiles, in private messages and in posts.
    • You are permitted to register a single account with the forum, attempting to create multiple accounts will result in a permanent ban of all said accounts, as well as a permanent IP ban.
    • All posts must be made in English or with an English translation included. Only in rare circumstances will this be rule be waived.
    • Please avoid enormous signatures - they cause problems for those with bandwidth restrictions and slow browsers. Enormous sigs may have to be removed by staff.
    • The staff reserve the right to edit or delete any posts or threads without notice, including the expulsion of unruly members.
    Minor Guidelines:
    • Please do not request thread closures/moves as it is the decision of the staff to moderate posts and threads, not the members. Discussion of the sort only encourages users to go off-topic.
    • Do not ask to become staff. We're super serious. The best way to completely screw yourself out of becoming part of the team is to PM a current member of staff and ask. Personally, we won't even respond to your PM.
    • The report function is your friend but not your babysitter. Only report something that cannot be resolved by anyone other than staff. If you cannot get on with someone then please make use of the ignore and block functions available.
    If you have any queries concerning the current set of rules then you are more than welcome to contact any of the current staff regarding your issue.

    Thank you,
    - The Staff
