These are the rules of the forums:
No swearing, no racism, no sexism or comments regarding ones sexuality. This also means signatures must be clean.
No attacking members, if you have a problem with a member please contact an Admin.
Do not used the forum to advertise other sites.
Do not use the forum to post spam.
No flooding the forum with multiple posts of the same question.
Posting of inappropriate images such as pornography is prohibited.
Do not create more than one account, unless given permission by an Admin first.
Don't post other members personal details on the forums.
DO NOT upload any work that is NOT yours, or have not been given permission for. Any uploads unlawfully placed will be removed, and the user given 3 warnings automatically.
No money exchanges or asking for anything in return for money - In many cases (i.e. Nigerian scams), this is illegal, and the forum member will be banned automatically, or given 2 warnings, subject to severity.
Do try to not use more than 5 smileys in a post.
Try not to dig up a considerably old topic. Whilst this is still a small enough forum, digs of more than 6 months are generally frowned upon, unless relevant to the topic.
Do not constantly ask/pester content creators about when their content will be released either by PM or posting in topics.
Do not insult users custom content.
Don't be rude or disrespectful to other forum members.
Breaking any of the above may result in either a ban or a warning. If you find any posts that you feel are inappropriate in any way or are breaking the forum rules, use the report button to notify the forum staff of any issues.
Three Strike policy
A three strike policy is being introduced for users that break the rules, this comprises of:
Strike 2: You will receive a Temporary Ban (2 weeks or 1 Month duration depending on severity of incident)
Strike 3: You will receive a 3 Month Ban or a permanent ban depending on how serious the situation.
Try to stay on the topic of the thread.
Try not to use "Text Text" (i.e. single letter words (u,y, etc) lol, rofl, etc.) whilst writing, and don't write sentences in uppercase text.
Give a new thread a descriptive title, that is about the subject of the thread.
Use a decent amount of punctuation in your posts!!!
