Rules


1. Spamming.
Spamming doesn't serve any purpose but boring people. Nobody wants to be annoyed by irritating members, therefore it's a rule not to do it. Posts which serve no purpose to a thread topic, one word/image/emoticon posts, or posts which otherwise don’t have any contribution are classed as spam. Similarly, threads with no real purpose or that only incite spam/flame replies are classed as spam.

2. Swearing.
Yeah, I know, I can get really caught up in the heat of things, but overall, please don't use rude words. Not only does it lower the amount of respect you get from other members, but it just doesn't sound good in an environment like this. I try to limit the amount of vulgar words I use, you should too. Swearing isn't necessary, whatsoever.

3. Flaming.
No flamming, at all. Sure, if you disagree with someone then you'll naturaly want to argue your opinion. Just try to prevent insulting people at the same time, it may not seem hurtful to you, but it certainly damages the target.

4. Double Posting.
Don't post twice in a row on any thread, you may only do this if you need to bump it or maybe post something that'll spark new discussion. If you want to say something else then just edit your last post.

5. Correct Sections.
Make sure you follow the category lists and forum titles. Post in the right places.

6. Nothing Illegal.
- You are forbidden to send people links that pertain to:
* Racism or Prejudice.
* Pornography or Sexually-themed images.
* Numerous pop ups or other disruptive ads.
* Viruses, Spyware, or Malware.
* Phishing.
* Scams.
* Products that you are trying to sell.
* Anything deemed offensive to a specific ethnic or religious group.
Oh and don't think we won't notice, because it's quite obvious in a place like this.

7. Advertising.
Advertising links in posts/threads is not permitted on the forum. This includes schemes to acquire free electronics and other items through referrals. If you are unsure what constitutes advertising, ask a staff member prior to posting it.

8. Nudity.
Nudity is completely unacceptable here. If any of the staff catch pictures or videos of anything under the category of porn, you will be punished.

9. Ban Avoidance.
If you get a new IP, new account, whatever to get onto the forums while you are banned, you will be found, and you will be banned again. If you can't handle the fact that you made the mistake before, then there is no reason to come back to do it again.


We uphold these rules for the pleasure of the community, if you break them, you're not only letting yourself down but the other members too, as they have to experience inappropriate behaviour.

The rules will be regularly updated if need be. So please check back to note any changes.

Information About Warnings

In most cases the staff will give out warning before any bans. After a user repeatedly offends under a rule violation, they attain a ban. How long that ban is differs from how serious the violation is.

Spamming/Double Posting/Other minor inappropriate behaviour.
Two warnings, then a 10 day ban.

Trolling/Flaming/Harrassment/Other moderate inappropriate behaviour.
One warning, then a 15 day ban.

Nudity/Anything Illegal/Other major inappropriate behaviour.
No warnings, 25+ day ban.

Thank you for taking your time to read over our rules, we hope you continue to enjoy your time here on the forums. Peace!
