Forum Rules

Forum Quick Rules

Respect – Treat other members with the respect they deserve. This should go without saying, but treat others like you would like to be treated!

Be Real – As a general rule, write as if you were speaking in real life to another human being. Do not use any catchphrases, memes, internet slang, or any other crap that makes you look like a 12-year old.

Real World – Try to stay out of other peoples’ personal lives.  Keep in mind there’s a good distinction between the Internet and real life.

Don’t post Crap – Please do not post crap asking us to vote for you on some website, give you referrals for free iPods / flatscreens / spare tires, or any other semi-spam things.

Spam – Please do not spam. The definition of spam is an irrelevant or un-approved advertising post. Any post considered spam will be removed.  We don’t mind people or companies advertising their events or stuff, as long as its relevant, but please just ask us first.

Respect the Mods and Writers – The moderators are here to keep the forums safe, sane, and secure. If they ask you to do something, please do it. Please do not harass or intentionally annoy the mods or insult the front page writers. If you do not like the mods or the moderation, feel free to not post here.

Insults – Insulting and flaming or personal attacks against forum staff will be not tolerated.

Language – The forum language is English only! Please only post in other languages in PM.

Shouting – Please do not post threads text in all CAPITALS since this is considered to be shouting and is not necessary.

Image size – we want you to post images, but please refrain from posting images larger than 800×600. This is considerate to members with slow internet speeds and keeps the forum looking tidy.

Red Text – Using red text is forbidden. Only moderators and administrators may use this.

Swearing – Swearing is not completely banned, just do not swear unnecessarily, and only use minor words. A filter is in place to safeguard this system.

Hacking – No hacking, and illegal activity, such as torrents and illegal downloads, this will not be tolerated, and if appropriate, may be reported to the local authority.

Adult content – Please do not post inappropriate material, I think everyone understands what I mean by this. The policy goes that if you would not feel comfortable viewing it at work, or in front of children or parents, don’t post it!

We think these rules are clear and easy to follow. These are only in place to ensure our community is a fun place to be, and a comfortable atmosphere for all.
