1. No Spam - Spam is defined as blatant self-promotion, or sometimes simply mindless posting. It is best phrased as "Stupid Pointless Annoying Messages." It can also be seen as advertising for a major website in order to get profits from said website. Multiple posts of the same subject to clutter the forum, posts with no relevance to any subjects dealt with on the forum, or posts devoted purely to promoting one’s own work will be deleted, and the user will be given a Warning or a Ban, depending on the severity of the offence.

2. No Unfit Material for Minors - Many of our users are under 18 years of age and we therefore strictly forbid any material such as pornography and erotic writing. Any user posting such things will be banned.

3. No Flaming - Flaming is defined as personal attacks or insults on another person regarding the persons religion/views/knowledge etc. Though we encourage healthy discussion and debate, a certain point comes in which an insult turns personal, and this is strongly discouraged via both public forums and the messenger. Reports of such abuse will usually result in a warning; multiple abuses will result in a Ban.

4. No Trolling - The inverse side of Flaming, Trolling is defined by trying to make others insult you. Posts such as "PS3 sux" would be considered trolling, as it is a purposeful act meant to result in argument. Users in violation of this will be Banned. Feeding the trolls is considered equally against the rules.

5. No Warez - Posting up and asking for illegal warez is strictly prohibited. This includes but is not limited to: ROMs, isos, and game cracks. Violation of this Rule will usually result anywhere from a Warning to a Ban, depending on the offence.

6. No Spoilers - Spoilers are bits of story information that a user will not know. After a time, Spoilers become known as "common knowledge," and it is therefore alright to post about them. But near and immediately after the release of a game, a spoiler must always be marked with a spoiler tag
clearly. It is generally accepted policy to wait about 2 months after the release of the game before one posts spoilers without a spoiler warning. Violation of this Rule will generally be met with a Warning. Spoilers are permitted only in specially marked forums.

7. No "Gurus" - There are to be no posts telling people to "ask [a user] anything." These clutter the forum and are unnecessary. If a user would like to become well known as intelligent in the community he or she can let it be known by replying to pertinent topics. Violation will result in a Warning.

8. Signature/Avatars - Avatars must abide by the following rules: 1) The max size for avatars is 100x100 pixels, and the max file size is 20KB; 2) They must not contain anything sexually explicit, inappropriate or distasteful, as deemed by the staff forum. Violation will result in staff removing signature and the member shall receive a warning. All stated rules apply as total values when two signature graphic are used instead of one.

9. No "1337-speak" - "1337-speak" (leet) is incomprehensible gibberish and is not welcome on this forum. Violation of this will result in a Warning, but repeated offences could result in a Ban.

10. No Insubordination - Insubordination is simply not listening to the ruling of a Mod or Admin. Disregarded what we tell you to do is against the rules and will usually result in a Ban.

11. No Mod/Admin Begging - Mods and Admins are happy to promote fit users to a position of authority if they display the proper attitude, responsibility, discipline, and maturity. One way to show the exact opposite of all of these qualities is to ask for a position of authority. If you’re fit for the position, we will find you, not vice-versa. Violation of this will result in a Warning; repeated offences may result in a Ban.

12. No Ban Contesting - Though we like to have an open dialogue with our users, a ban will stay a ban. Please do not log on under a different account or send an e-mail to ask why you have been banned. If you are unable to realize why you were banned, your lack of understanding of the Rules is probably the reason itself. If you logon under a different account somehow after a banning, you will once again be Banned.

13. No E-Mail Abuse - It is unacceptable to use the e-mail of users found here on the forum to sign them up for junk e-mail, send them threats, etc. If you do this, you will be Banned and you will probably have your ISP Contacted.

14. No Double Posting - If you need to add any information to your previous post, use the "edit" button at the top-right corner of your post.This prevents the page from becoming unnecessarily cluttered, and it takes the same amount of time as making a completely new post right below your previous one. If a double post is spotted, the post will just be removed without question.

15. No Advertising Other Sites -
We employ a strict "no advertising" policy, which includes promoting your site, or that of a competitor. Linking to sources of articles is okay - however posting links in order to
send traffic to those sites is unacceptable. Such posts will be removed and the member will be warned.
