Common Sense

These are the rules established such that everyone can use these forums in relative safety, and have fun. Try to be at least somewhat polite here. I'd rather not have to resort to deleting posts and banning people because of stupid childish name calling and other pointless stuff like that. I'm a pretty easy going person, and so I'd like to have a pretty easy going community, and I hope I don't have to get any stricter than the rules laid out below.

-No Flaming

Arguing is fine, as is critiquing someone's work, or refuting someones post. All of these things can be done in a civilized manner. If you flame, Your post will be deleted, and if there are consistent complaints, you will be banned.

-Don't Bypass Word Filters / Don't Fake Profanity

I've made watching the harsh language easy for you. If you choose to go out of your way to type a fake profanity your post will be deleted. After multiple offenses (at moderators discretion) you will be banned.

-No Bigotry

I have the least tolerance for this. Your post will be deleted and if moderators see it more than once you will be banned.

-No Piracy / No Links to Copyrighted Material

Posts containing links to copyrighted material will be edited or deleted at moderators discretion. This site is about gaming and modding. Not about helping people steal games. I'm not passing judgment on people who pirate games. I don't mind if you talk about piracy, or even if you talk about games you've pirated, but links to pirated files or "how to" articles about piracy will be deleted.

-Listen to Moderators

If you have been warned by a moderator about doing something, then stop doing it. simple.

Also, for the love of God, DON'T SPAM THE FORUM.
By spam I mean that new topic thread about Viagra.

This should be a permabannable offense.
