Forum Rules and Regulations

1. Posts are to be made in the relevant forum. Users are asked to read the forum descriptions before posting. Users consistently posting to the wrong forum may be temporary banned.

2. Posting to the forum could only be made in English. No other languages are allowed. Posts in other languages will be deleted without notice.

3. Do not post spoilers without spoiler tags
Spoiler tags are listed as a button, but also can be hand-typed as: [ spoiler ] [/ spoiler ] (without the spaces). In addition, always label a thread which will have spoilers with [SPOILERS] in the title of the topic.

4. Do not make useless posts
For example, going into a thread about a serious topic and posting something stupid like "I like ham" will probably end up getting deleted, and get you a warning in return. This includes going into tons of old threads and bumping them with information that isn't needed anymore (since the poster is clearly long gone) or one liners. The definition of "useless" content is determined by the moderators and admins, and clearly has grey area. If you post dozens of posts in a short period of time, all of which are the above content, the moderators have the ability to remove them.

5. Members should post in a way that is respectful of other users. Flaming or abusing users in any way or post messages implying discrimination of gender, race, nationality, religion, etc. will not be tolerated and will lead to a ban without warning.

6. Members are asked not to act as "back seat moderators". If members note an issue which contravenes something in the rule, they are to bring it to the attention of the Admin. Do not respond to such topics yourself.

7. Members should remember that this board is aimed at a general audience. Posting pornographic (including Anime hentai) or generally offensive text, images, links, etc. will not be tolerated and will be banned without warning.

8. Members are asked to respect the copyright of other users, websites, media, game developers, etc. Users posting, linking to or asking for information on (but not limited to) warez, crackz, serialz, ISO disc images of games, soundtracks (MP3 or any form of audio files), modding of consoles, 3D models extracted from any games etc. will be banned and their posts removed.

9. Members should post in a way which is consistent with "normal writing". That is users should not post excessive numbers of emoticons, large, small or coloured text, etc. Similarly users should not use ALL CAPS or excessive punctuation (e.g. ! and ?) in topic titles or posts. Users consistently abusing this will be banned.

9. Members should use an appropriate, descriptive title when posting a new topic. Examples of bad titles include; "Need help!", "How?", etc. Examples of better titles include; "Need help to (your needs)" etc.

10. Spam is not tolerated here under any circumstances. No spam-encourage topics such as "Circle of Spam", "One Word Game" or similar "game" topics should be created. Users posting spam or post for the sake of increasing post counts will be banned and their posts removed. See "The Definition of SPAM" topic for clarification of what is spam.

11. Other than reporting to the Admin, members are asked to ignore obvious spam topics or repeated topics and not to reply to them even if the topics are not locked. In case of a repeated topic, the only necessary reply is to provide the URL to the original similar topic. Any member posting after that is considered spamming and will be dealt with.

12. Members are asked not to treat the forum as a chat room by replying to each other consecutively one post after another. Use ICQ, AIM or Yahoo Messenger instead. This is considered a form of spam and users may be banned.

13. Bumping a topic is only permitted after six hours have elapsed since the last post to that topic. Users who abuse this may be temporary banned.

14. The Admin reserves the right to move, edit, lock or delete any post at any point of time without explanation. The determination of what is construed as indecent, vulgar, spam, etc. as noted in the rule, is up to the Admin and not the users.

15. The above Forum Rules where applicable also apply to Private Messaging (PM). Abuse of the private messaging system will lead to the offending users losing the ability to send private messages.

16. Avatars
a) Users are permitted to utilise an avatar from the avatar gallery or upload an image of their own to the forum. User defined avatars are to be no larger than 80 pixels square, contain no image which attempts to portray the user as having an official status here (e.g. mimiking ranks or copying avatars of team members), and not exceeding 6KB (6144 Bytes) in filesize.

b) Avatars are subject to the same conditions as posts with respect decency, copyright and so forth. The Admin also reserves the right to remove any avatar without prior notice. The determination of what is construed as indecent, obscene, etc. as noted in the rule, is up to the Admin and not the users.

c) Users abusing these rules will lose their privileges to display avatars.
