    1. Post to the appropriate forum for the topic being presented. Posting General questions in the General Discussions. A moderator has the right to delete a post / thread without notice.

    2. No spamming. Any such messages will be removed at the sole discretion of the Moderators. (Spamming is defined as excessive posts that offer no significant value to the topic. Most of these kinds of posts are just single-word posts that have no meaning or value whatsoever. It can also be a post with one of the Similes and nothing else. Or even just a post that could be of normal length but take the thread completely off topic.)

    3. Do not curse in the subject line.

    4. No excessive foul language; There are basic filters for some foul language, but you are also expected to use good judgment and common sense when posting. Members here are of all ages and the content in a post should be suitable for all ages.

    5. No linking or posting of any material that is pornographic, obscene, vulgar, sexually-orientated, hateful or threatening. This includes Signature Pics.

    6. No flaming. Members are expected to conduct themselves as civilized individuals here. That means showing courtesy to staff, other members and guests, and avoiding excessive cursing and absolutely no personal attacks, bashes or bigotry.

    7. Respect both moderators and administrators. They spend countless hours maintaining the forum and helping people and building it into the great community that it has become.

    8. Newbies should be treated with respect even if they ask a question that has been answered a dozen times before, simply refer them to the proper thread that answers their question. Remember, there is no such thing as a stupid question if you don't know the answer.

    9. No shouting (CAPS Off) - It’s rude and annoying.

    10. Posts should be in English only. Non-English posts or posts with extremely bad spelling and / or grammar may be removed.

    11. Do not start threads if:
    -You are simply responding or talking about another thread that has been locked/deleted by a moderator.
    -You are asking why a previous thread was locked/deleted by a moderator.
    -You want to inform the world of matters that are completely pointless. (e.g. "I am so drunk. Look at me type while I am drunk.")
    -You solely want to complain about the behavior of forum participants or content. In doing so, you are only creating another pointless thread.
    -You have already posted the same question/comment in another forum. Do not Double Post!

    12. Do not Post Advertisements about other sites without permission from one of the Site admins.

    13. Do not post personal information (i.e. addresses, phone numbers, IPs, passwords, PINs, or any other information considered private) without the express permission of the individual.

    14. Observe all copyright laws when posting. If the material belongs to someone else, credit the original author. Do not post material where you do not have permission to distribute it electronically or otherwise.

    15. You will not discuss, suggest, engage, or encourage any illegal activity. Links provided to locations that deal with any such activity are also expressly forbidden. Do not post messages that violate Federal, State, or Local laws which include, but are not limited to, anything that violates a copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret, or is bound by NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement).

    16. Absolutely no warez links, requests, discussions, suggestions, or any discussion about warez. Same goes for pornographic material, drugs, or any other illegal activities.

    17. Banning is a LAST resort. We will not ban anybody until all else has failed.We reserve the right to ban any member at any time without reason or prior notice.

Cheats can be discussed to teach the general gaming population on what to look out for, but any discussion of how to use said cheats will result in a permenant ban.
