    Forum Rules

    General Forum Rules

    Searching is key! Before you post a question, use the forum search feature to determine whether your topic has already been covered. Use general terms.
    Do not start a flame war. If you have a problem with someone, other then a reportable issue (eg. Hacking), message that person and carry on a private discussion. Also, if someone has engaged in behavior that is a detriment to the message board: spamming, flaming people, advertising, contact one of the forum moderators.
    Flaming the offensive user will only increase the problem. Harassment is not tolerated.
    Make sure you are posting constructive criticism, whether it's negative or positive. Contrary to what some people believe, we do take feedback from here into account.

    No Backseat Moderating
    Let the Forum Moderators do the moderating. Backseat Moderating is when people who are not Moderators try to enforce the forum rules. Whenever you see a person breaking the rules, take advantage of the "Report this post to a moderator" link. Or simply IGNORE the offensive post(s) or thread. The most common backseat reply is the "+1 in before lock" phrase. Backseat moderating is annoying, and pointless.

    Report Post to the Moderators
    Should you observe a fellow forum member breaking these rules please report the post by clicking the Report Post [!] button located to the right of every post, or if that feature is unavailable feel free to contact any of the Forum Staff, or Admins.

    Account Termination
    Users who are found to be repeat offenders will be removed from the forums. As well as any new accounts they make.

    Disclaimer
    Administrators/Moderators reserve the right to move, change, or delete any content at any time if they feel it is inappropriate or unsuitable, also depending on the type of rules broken and the number of warnings you already have, we decide the length of any forum account ban / TeamSpeak Ban.
