Any rules broken adhere to a 3-strike system, unless otherwise noted.
Strike 1: Warning to remain in effect for 1 month
Strike 2: 3 month temporary ban
Strike 3: Permanent ban.


1. No flaming, either overtly or covertly, whatsoever. Treat everyone with the same respect you wish to receive yourself.

2. Do not ruin a topic by flooding, spamming, or posting irrelevant material. Double posting is prohibited unless a relevant news update is being posted or the topic has been inactive for at least a 2 week period and the reviving post attempts to further the discussion.

3. Use proper grammar and punctuation as best you can. "Short hand" and "text talk" are prohibited. "Lol", "BTW", "AFAIK", and other more well known abbreviations are okay, but entire posts written in short hand or text talk will result in administrative action. Also, try to keep your posts at a 2 word minimum, please.

4. Try to limit the use of profanity. The occasional "ass" or "damn" is okay, but posts filled with profanity will be deleted. F-bombs, however, are strictly prohibited.

5. No promoting or encouraging illegal activities, including but not limited to pirating, illegal downloading, underage drinking, and recreational drug use (ethical discussion regarding subjects like legalization of cannabis are okay, though).

6. Advertising is allowed in the Affiliates & Advertisements sub-forum and your signature only. Advertising anywhere else on the site is prohibited.

All for now. These rules are subject to change without notification, so check back often. And if you have any questions regarding any rule you feel is ill-defined, don't hesitate to contact me or my co-administrator KeVo for clarification.

Update log as follows.

Slightly revised Rule #2. I cut and pasted from another site that worded it better than I could and I hadn't intended the "staff's discretion" bit to remain, but I forgot to delete it. My fault, I'm sorry.
