As you all know, we've been rather lax on the rules for a while, this has led some people to believe that they can do and say whatever on the forums, this isn't okay, so we've decided to get some rules up.
People who break these rules will be given a warning, and depending on the severity of the offense can be banned temporarily or pemanently.
⦁ Respect other users. No flaming or abusing fellow members. Abusive comments and threads are likely to be deleted at any time.
Avoid using words like "Elitist", "Normie" or similar as they provide nothing to a conversation and are basically Ad Hominem.
⦁ Harassment. No threats, trolling or harassment of other users will be tolerated. Any instance of this behavior is grounds for deletion from the forums
⦁ Any kind of slurs or hate speech towards groups will not be tolerated. Hate speech is speech which attacks a person or group on the basis of attributes such as gender,
ethnic origin, religion, race, disability, or sexual orientation.
⦁ Excessive Profanity, abuse, and other inappropriate content will be deleted and the user given a warning. Repeated violations will lead to suspension or deletion of the account.
⦁ No spam. All automated messages, advertisements, and links to competitor websites will be deleted immediately.
⦁ Stalking, spamming, or hacking other users' accounts will result in immediate deletion of the account and a permanent ban.
⦁ Sock puppet accounts will be deleted and the user given a warning.
⦁ Don't troll the forums as an attempt to appeal at a chat ban as this will result in a permanent ban. Such appeals should be directed to darkgod.
⦁ Be constructive and be willing to learn from others. Stay on-topic and don't derail threads with irrelevant content or arguments.
⦁ Post in relevant sub-forums only. Messages posted in the wrong topic area will be removed and placed in the correct sub-forum by moderators.
⦁ If advertising your YouTube channel, make sure to keep it relevant to the forum's and game's content, and try to keep it in a contained thread or your signature. Don't advertise in other people's threads.
⦁ Before bumping a very old thread, make sure you have something new to add and have used the search function.
⦁ Your first post in the forums will need moderator approval, please be patient and don't submit the same post multiple times.
To help moderation, be sure to use the forum's report function.
Rules are subject to be modified at any time.
