Site Rules

1. Important Rules

1a. In no circumstances should a user post any offensive or disruptive content in any threads or posts.

1b. If you are not a staff member, you cannot assume the role of a staff member and therefore assume the power of a staff member for yourself. Staff members will take care of the situation once they are notified.

2. Additional Rules

2a. Please use appropriate avatars and signatures; they should not be offensive or distracting to other users.

2b. Signatures should be kept to a height of no more than 100 pixels. If you have a signature that's over this; you will be told to change it to something smaller otherwise a staff member will do it for you.

2c. Before committing a post, please check your spelling and grammar; there's nothing worse than other users having to figure out what you are trying to say due to bad spelling and grammar.

2d. Also before committing a post, ask yourself the following question: Is the post I am about to submit relevant and adds to the current state of the discussion? If the answer to that question is a No then please reconsider whether to make that post or not otherwise it will be considered as spam and may be deleted.

2e. Be polite to other users, you should not threaten or flame other users. If you have a personal dispute with another user. Please sort it out using private messaging or some other method such as instant messaging.

2f. Please make use of the "Preview Now!" button to ensure the post you are about to make is what you would expect. It is also useful to check whether your BBCode syntax is valid or not.

2g. Please do not post posts only constituting of one word or emoticon, please add to the discussion if you can!

2h. Posting in very old threads is generally not looked upon favourably as any discussions in the threads are likely to have died off. Don't do it.

2i. Please don't state the obvious if it's already dead obvious in the discussion; this clutters up the discussion currently going on.

2j. Please type as you would formally, please use capital i when referring to yourself, use full punctuation and capitals when starting a sentence. Presentation of your posts will contribute to who you are in the forums and will help other users read your posts.

2k. Creating unnecessary drama in the forums or chat for attention seeking and for no other productive reason is strictly prohibited. Doing so will result in a strike to your account. After three strikes your account will be banned.


Users posting posts that do not follow the forum manners to some extent will risk their user rating being docked by other members. Going under -100pts in your user rating can get you banned without warning.

Users may also get banned immediately if their offence is considered to be extremely serious.

The staff member's decision is final.
