Default Our Rules

1. General Rules :

1.1. Section Rules - Some sections have their own set of rules which you must also follow. If you can’t find these, they are usually a sticky at the top of the page. They will specify the rules of this section as some sections have slightly different rules.
1.2. Referrals - Do not post sites where you either have to sign up under someone’s username or have to click in order for them to be able to gain prizes.
1.3. Shoutbox - Forum rules still apply! And remember "DO NOT ADVERTISE YOUR SITE IN SHOUTBOX" If you want advise or a review, make a post.
1.4. Referrals - Are not allowed at all!
1.5. Forum Status - Asking for any type of rank such as mod, respected or admin repeatedly can get annoying.It can lead to a temporary ban.
1.6. Also while these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way.
1.7.Language - Altho English is preferred, it is not required ,You can post and chat with any language you speak .

2.1. Each member is allowed one login account. Registering with multiple accounts is not allowed.
2.2. Signatures/Avatars - Max height is 175px. Other rules still apply.
2.3. No user name changes ever ,be sure you use the one you want to keep

3. Behaviour to Members :

3.1. Flaming - This includes petty name calling to full on abuse, threats of any kind and general rudeness. All people involved will be banned(excluding Staff). If you feel someone is treating you unfairly, simply press the report button at the bottom of that person's post, and a Mod/Admin will deal with it. Do not become involved in an argument!
3.2. Discrimination - Discrimination or racism towards anyone will not be tolerated. This includes religious/personal beliefs, race, colour, gender, language, etc.

4. Posting :

4.1. We do not tolerate abuse, insulting posts, personal attacks or idiotic flamming posts or shouts.
4.2. Do not post threads in order to mislead a member. This could be anything from phrasing a question as a tutorial or saying it is one thing and it being completely different.
4.3. Bumping Threads - This means if a thread has not been posted in for a while, DO NOT post in there to bump it back up unless you are generally interested.
4.5. Please report posts and a staff member will deal with it.
4.6. Do not feed the trolls or even become one. Posting a fake thread about how you are going to leave the site, got scammed or anything like that is trolling.

4.9. Multiple posting in order to increase your post count is not allowed and infractions will be given.
