Forum Rules

Post by MichaelM » Sun 26th Feb 2006

I am going to set down a list of basic rules here but really <b>the best thing you can do here is just use common sense.</b> It isnt hard - it will keep you alot more popular, and you will end up having alot more fun. Not to be mention, it will stop you from being banned.


Rules:

1 - No spam - spam is "stupid, pointless, annoying messages" - and we don't want them. Posting messages that are not related to the thread topic count as spam, as do single word posts. Always try to back up what you are saying. It makes your post more interesting to read, and helps conversation.

2 - Do not flame - Flaming is messages that are directed at another member, with the intent of insulting or offending them.

3 - Do not post links to, or name/discuss ways in which to, download illegal material.

Any site for downloading copyrighted music for free. will be considered illegal. Also, links to programs which allow downloading, (peer to peer networks etc.) are a breach of the rules as well.

ROMs are also illegal, and therefore forbidden as well. The excuse "they're legal if you own the games," does not work here. The reason is obvious; most people who claim to own the games, are lying about it.

If you see anyone violating rules - please use the "Report this post" button.

4 - Signatures

No inappropriate, offensive or ridiculously large file size images.

You are allowed one large image in your signature, to a maximum size of 500x250 pixels. Text must be in the default font size, and to an appropriate length (Shortened if you have an image as well).

If you have any questions, read the FAQ, or PM one of the moderators.

And for the cheesy ending:

Most of all - HAVE FUN! :D

Good point - Ill edit the rules thingy now to point that out :)

Spam is definitely allowed in the spam section.


So that yas know, the rules are just there as my backup. If someone breaks them, theyll have had fair warning :)

They arent up cos someone has been spamming or whatever. And there are no new rules. These are the same rules we've been using since the forum started, but ive decided to write them down now :)

WHAT!!!!!!!! I didn't break any rules besides the spam rule and that was only a couple of times, and it was completly by accident. If anything, you should shoot Jax :grr: lol. j/k But seriously, as long as it's on topic, posting too much isn't against the rules is it?

But we do prefer when you are here. Lol.
