  • Forum Rules

    I. General Forum Rules:

    Do not:
    • Insult other members.
    • Post personally identifiable information (i.e. name, address, email, phone number, et cetera).
    • Bump threads.
    • Derail a thread's topic.
    • Post links to phishing sites.
    • Post spam or Re-post Closed, Modified, Deleted Content.
    • Use excessive capitalization.
    • Repetitively post in the incorrect forum (example: bug reports belong in bug & issues forum).
    • Openly argue with a moderator. Contact the Moderator via a private message.
    • Share your account. Forum accounts are intended for the use by one person.
    • Create alternate, backup, or multiple accounts.
    • Publicly post or otherwise share PMs with other users unless you have the expressed permission of the sender to do so. Private Messages are intended to be just that - private.

    II. The following topics are strictly off limits, including in external links:
    • Porn, gross stuff, or anything else not safe for work.
    • Piracy, warez, Leaked content.
    • Any discussion of piracy will result in a permanent ban from the Forums.
    • Cheating, hacking, game exploits.
    • Threats of violence or harassment, even as a joke.
    • Posting copyrighted material such as magazine scans.
    • Soliciting, begging, auctioning, selling, advertising, referrals.
    • Racism, discrimination.
    • Drugs, alcohol.
    • Religious, political, and other “prone to huge arguments” threads.

    III. No Backseat Moderating:

    Let the Forum Moderators do the moderating. Backseat Moderating is when people who are not Moderators try to enforce the forum rules. Whenever you see a person breaking the rules, take advantage of the "Report this post to a moderator" link. Or simply IGNORE the offensive post(s) or thread. Backseat moderating is annoying, and pointless.

    IV. Report Post to the Moderators:

    Should you observe a fellow forum member breaking these rules please report the post or feel free to contact any of the Forum Staff.

    V. Lifetime Achievement Award:

    Users who are found to be repeat offenders will be removed from the forums.
