This is the official rules of the forum. Follow these and your time here will be enjoyable.

These rules will be easy to remember, because most are out of common sense and manners.

1. No Spam:
Spamming is anything that has nothing to do with the thread your
posting in. (Or category.) THIS ALSO MEANS, no begging or asking for
free things.

2. No Hacking Discussion: You
cannot discuss hacks on the forum. There is a small forum for hacking
if you decide to join the appropriate user group. Many people dislike
hacking and it is strictly forbidden on the forum.

3. No Advertising:
Unless you have a official website for your club or team, and you put
think link in your club post, advertising is against the rules. You can
advertise, however, in your signature.

4. No Swearing/Cursing We have word filters here, no foul language is tolerated, no abbreviations, no using the cute little *.

5. No Double Posting:
DO NOT POST TWICE IN A ROW. You can simply press the "Edit" button and
add it to your post. This simply means that you need to wait for
someone else to post again before you can. If you post the same thing
twice because of a computer glitch, edit your second post to tell us
and we'll have a moderator fix it. However, if your double post is
CONTRIBUTING to the thread and it is after 24 hours, you will not be
given an infraction. (Warning.)

6. No Adult Material: This includes pornography and explicit content such as drugs and sex. Please do not post anything like this as you will be banned. (This also includes gore.)

7. RESPECT ALL FORUM USERS!
We will not tolerate bad behavior towards other members of the forum.
Do not be rude to other users because of something that they can't do,
or something that you don't like. Respect their effort and please,
constructive criticism only. (If you are fighting with another user,
you both could be punished, please use the report button instead of
violence.)

8. Threads Directed at one Person:
Do not direct any threads to one person on the forum, such as "Do you
think I'm selfish?" or "Kelly just wanted to let you know your new
penguin hair looks great". Use Private messaging for this.

9. DON'T POST IN HARD TO READ COLORS! Some computers show a hard time reading colors such as yellow and white so don't use them.

10. DON'T BUMP OLD THREADS! If the thread your in is over a month old, then don't post in it unless you have a true contribution to share.

11. Use proper grammar
We don't appreciate you using abbreviations for things such as thanks,
(thx) or cool (kwl). Please use the full word. We will allow the
exception of, "Lol".

12.NO BACK SEAT MODDING! Backseat moderating is when you tell people that they broke the rules, this is considered spam.

13. NO ASKING TO BE APART OF STAFF!
Yes there is a section where you can post applications but that is a
lot different then asking. Sending in an application is when you post
about your qualities, what you will do to help, past experience and
all. Asking is just "HEY PLEASE CAN I BE MOD PLZ PLZ PLZ PLZ!!!!!!"
which is very annoying for staff and users.

These are the main
forum rules and I know you'll have a good time by following them.
Please do not whine or complain about infractions or bans unless you
are sure they are unfair. Which you can ask in the forum support
section.

FAQ


1. How can I become a moderator? We are
always looking for new moderators, so we will contact YOU if we want
you to be one. Not the other way around. (Please don't ask to be a
moderator.)

2. What is a warning/infraction? You receive these
for breaking forum rules. Receive five and you will be permanently
banned. (In some cases, a 2 week to 1 month ban will be instated.)

3. Can I become a moderator even after I was banned? YES YOU CAN! Just work your way back up and be a good little penguin.

4.
Why do I have a "Please read the rules" rank? This is just a forum rank
for when you first start the forum. It will go away when you achieve 25
posts.

5. I have a lot of posts, can I brag about it? No. This forum is not completely about popularity, nobody likes a bragger.

6.
WHY DOESN'T MY SIGNATURE SHOW UP IN POSTS? You'll need to click "Always
attach my signature" in the "Preferences" section of your profile. You
can always turn this off later. There is also an attach signature
button under every post in options.

7. When I'm on, "Users
online" there is a huge map! What if someone checks where I live? This
goes to your Internet provider. Any site you visit can find this, it is
in your I.P. address, which stands for Internet provider address.

8.
Why do I keep getting emailed every time somebody replies to my post?
You can disable this by UN-checking the, "Notify me of replies button
or going to your profile and in preferences turn off "Always notify me
of replies". You can always set this back on later.

You must follow these rules or your account will result in infraction/warning and/or ban.
