The rules page on the main site have been removed because the information will now be placed directly into the registration page. Therefore, this is the new home for our forum rules and TOS.Forum Rules
Personal Attacks: While debating and discussion is fine, we do not allow rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks.Terms of Service
Baiting: No baiting. Dropping things in the forums just to stir the waters will not be tolerated.
Venting: Regularly using this forum as a way of letting out pent up anger is inconsiderate, disrupts the community and causes the same result as trolling. Shout at your TV instead.
Adult Content: No adult content of any type, including images or depictions. Avatars of a sexual nature are also not allowed.
Language: Please keep the use of offensive language to a minimum. We are here for people of all ages, and want everyone to feel comfortable.
Spamming: Spam is typically considered to be repetitive posting of the same text again and again or nonsensical posts that have no substance and are often designed to annoy other forum users. Bumping posts in order to keep them near the top of the list is also prohibited. Posts of this nature are not conducive to community spirit and are unwelcome. Out of consideration for those with poor connection speeds, posting more than four images per page on non-photo specific threads is considered spamming.
Advertising: Advertising to users of this message board in anyway is not allowed. This also applies to the use of private messages and emails without the recipient's prior consent.
Rubbish: Please refrain from posting meaningless threads, one word (or short) non-sense posts, or the such.
Illegal Activities: Discussion of illegal activities such as software and music piracy and other intellectual property violations are not allowed.
Speak English: If you are going to post non-English on these forums, please also post an English Translation of your post. Also speaking in 'txt speech' much like you do on a mobile phone can be confusing and therefore is also not allowed.
Off-Topic: Please try to avoid going off-topic as it's disrespectful to the thread owner and can irritate readers who are expecting on-topic discussion. It is essential this rule is respected for official news articles as in those circumstances moving off-topic discussions is a complicated process due to the thread being directly linked to our home page.
Privacy: If you are in the position of knowing sensitive information about another member's private life that is currently not public domain then please refrain from posting this without prior permission from the member that the information is about.
Affiliate/Referrals: You cannot post any affiliate or referral links, or post anything asking for a referral. Such posts will be subject to removal.
