As a member of our community, please take the time to read our rules and respect these when you are visiting the various areas of the website.

Forum Rules
Any member found breaching the rules will be dealt with accordingly on an individual basis. You can read about the current Infraction Points System below.

1 Infraction Point: Inappropriate Language
1 Infraction Point: Signature Rule Violation
1 Infraction Point: Spammed Advertisement
2 Infraction Points: Abuse Of Other Member(s)

Furthermore the Super Moderators are able to give out Custom Infractions for violations which may not be covered above.

Please note that receiving 3 Infraction Points within 10 days will result in an automatic week-long ban.
Please also note that in exceptional circumstances a Super Moderator may feel that the only action available to him/her is a ban.

General Rules

While banter, debating and discussion is fine, we will not tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks or purposeless inflammatory posts.
Please refrain from posting meaningless threads, one word (or short) non-sense posts, or the such.
Multiple or repeated posting in order to increase your post count is not allowed. Any incidents of these posts appearing will be deleted by the administrator.
Advertising, spamming and trolling is not allowed. This includes using the forum email and Private Messages system to spam other members.
Please wait a reasonable amount of time before bumping posts. For Technical Support issues, please allow 12 hours for a response to be posted.
Discussion of illegal activities such as piracy and other intellectual property violations are not allowed.
Each member is allowed one login account. Registering with multiple accounts is not allowed.
While we are quite happy to have constructive comparative conversations about updates from other websites, we will not tolerate blatant adverts or the sort of 'check out my update' threads. Also, we would appreciate it if you refrain from blatant bashing of other boards.
We reserve the right to remove offensive posts without notice.
You must post in English at all times. However, if you feel you have to post in another language, please also post an English Translation of your post.
You cannot post advertisements or notices to other websites, unless prior permission has been approved by the administrator.
We also reserve the right to ban anyone who wilfully violates the forum rules, as access to our downloads are a privilege and not a right.

We do not allow people to post threads or to send private messages or emails to users here that advertise or solicit any products, services, funds or donations. Explicit advertising and solicitating in signatures is also prohibited. If any member receives such messages, contact the Board as soon as possible for action.

We do not allow members downloading our updates and then selling it for their own financial gain, as we offer this already for free, and we can not condone this type of service offered from anyone on the forums because of the potential lawsuit problems it brings up.

Avatars and Signatures Rules

Any images as part of your signature should not exceed 150 pixels in height. The width does not matter as long as it does not force the thread page to widen upon loading.
If you have an image in your signature, then you must not enter any more than 2 lines of text. The size must be set to '1'.
You are allowed to have up to 4 lines of text, maximum size is '2', but only if you do not have an image inserted.
Animated avatars or signatures are not allowed. Any animated materials will be removed by the Super Moderators immediately.
Linking to other websites are perfectly fine, as long as they are cleared by a Super Moderator and does not links to sites of sexual nature or does not violate community standards. Super Moderators shall be the sole arbitrator of what does and what does not violate community standards. (Examples include sites about drugs and/or sex.)
Duplicate links to the same URL in a signature are not allowed.

Due to some members having excessively big signatures, the super moderators have revised the rules and decided to set a new height limit of 150 pixel for an image in the signature.

this is a concession made to members since the old rules had stated a maximum of 100 in height.

please re-read the rules and act accordingly.
