All messages should be written in english - typing messages in other languages, especially to add insults is not allowed. Any non english posts will be removed without warning.
Learn some netiquette, no one likes rude posts and how you format your messages does make a difference to how people reading will interpret them.
No SHOUTING, swearing, !!!!!!!!!!!! etc in topic titles, it is rude and annoying.
No cursing, swearing or other abusive language in posts / signatures or other user profile fields(Disguising words with ** or other characters is not acceptable!).
Do not use [IMG] tags to link directly to large(more than 640x480 or 100kB) images.. either use thumbnail links or normal text links. Most especially do not use [IMG] tags to place several MB of images in 1 post/topic.
No personal attacks on other members.
No rude/abusive usernames, keep it clean or expect your account to get deleted.
No duplicate accounts - you only need 1 account to be a member of the site, generally only trouble makers make multiple accounts and by doing so you will be treated as such.
No clever typing to avoid any word censors - if we've censored something it is for a reason and trying to outsmart the system is not going to earn you any bonus points.
No asking for or offering private message/email to avoid forum censors / rules.
No backseat admins - if you think someone has broken the rules use the 'report post' or Private Message feature to notify the site admins. Telling the Admins how to run the site isn't going to win you any brownie points.
No backtalking the Admins/Moderators - they do what they do for free, and don't have to put up with smartass comments.
Dont ask for copies of original files from games - if you have the cd/dvd extract it from that.
No posting of links to cracked games/software/etc - No discussion of cracking, hacking, warez, asking for serial keys etc - if you have a cracked game go buy it. Telling people to PM you for info/links to warez is not a way round this rule.
Theres no need to post telling people you've sent them a PM.. the forum will notify them automatically.
Avatars / Signatures - Keep them clean, rude / abusive messages in them will get you an infraction at the least.
No posting links to game addons that we would not allow here (this includes indirect links to sites that host them), No hinting you have the links and will PM them to people, No begging for said links to be PM'd to yourself, No adding links to said downloads or sites that host them in your signature or other part of your user profile.
No discussion / promotion of recreational drug use. (cannabis, cocaine, ecstasy etc).
No discussions about Religion.
No discussions about Politics.
No nudity or porn.
