Title: Forum Rules and Guidelines
Post by: mendonca on May 09, 2012, 10:04:00 AM
Remember that Everyone Here is a Human Being.
This is the first and most important rule of the forum, and from it all other rules are derived. If you adhere to it and use your common sense, you'll be welcome here.

For clarity, the following are a list of rules and guidelines for posts and discussions within the forum (and for user made content distributed via the forum). These will all, of course, be subject to a bit of common sense and the discretion of the moderators and admins. People ignoring these rules will be subject to warnings, temporary bans - or in some cases and with repeat offenders - permanent bans will be handed out.

Please feel free to report any posts you think don't meet these rules, it will greatly help as the moderators can't read everything. If you encounter anything on the forum that makes you uncomfortable, but is not covered by these rules, also feel free to report it.


No Toxicity

We do not tolerate toxic behavior and if you are found to be spreading toxicity you will be issued a warning. A second offense will result in a temporary suspension. If you are found to be spreading toxicity again your account will be permanently banned. Depending on the severity, any of these stages may be skipped at moderator discretion.

In general any post that is overly negative, doesn't contribute to the forum or simply contains foul language and insults is toxic. If your post doesn't contribute and instead serves as a way to stir up more negativity and rage from other users, it's toxic. Keep this in mind:


No Software Piracy or other Illegal Activities


No Hate Speech


No Sexual Content



Accept Moderation


No Spam or thread bumping


No Distracting Profiles


Avoid derailing


Use Descriptive Titles


No Necroing






Current moderators/admins of the forum are:

Updated:

The "Bug Reports & Support" sub-forum is a no-off-topic-zone with tighter rules. Posting in any thread there without the specific intention to report or help with an issue is now considered an offense worthy of an official warning.

Do not discuss moderator decisions (such as the locking of topics or the banning of accounts) publicly on the forums. If you have any complaints or questions please send a PM to a moderator.
