  • The forum has a profanity filter in place and bypassing this filter is not allowed, however light swearing such as "crap" will be tolerated to a point. (example of bypassing: if "stupid" is a filtered word, writing it as "$tupid" "stup!d" or the likes, or using broken code is bypassing.) All bypasses of the swear filter are infractable offenses, and if it continues after you have been infracted the poster will be reported for a ban. (See Warnings at the bottom of the post.)

If you are being harassed by someone via Private Messages, you are advised to place the harasser on ignore by using your Buddy/Ignore list
  • Making fun of poor English speakers will not be tolerated. Please respect each other even if you may not be able to understand them. Insults and jeering of poor English speakers will be removed. Realize that not all forum members speak English fluently.
  • Do not use the report button to submit false reports. Users who see any of the above material, can use the “report a post” icon under each forum accounts post however it should be noted that those who file false reports will be warned for their actions on two separate incidents prior to their first red infraction and eventually banned after further infractions. (See warnings)

It also should be noted that an ACCURATE English translation must be provided as the thread is also bound to the rules of the forum. Failure to provide an accurate translation can result in your thread being deleted or closed. Also note that non-English posts in an English threads should also have a English translation provided.

  • If you break rules, you may get a "yellow card" infraction, which is a friendly warning not to repeat said offenses (or any others for that matter).
  • If you do not listen you will get a "red card" infraction, which will give you 34 points toward your banning. At 100 points you will be banned.
  • Some very serious offenses such as posting pornography and listing private servers will give you an instant 100 points and you will be banned immediately.

It is expected that you follow the rules and give each person the respect they deserve. If at any time you have any questions, you are welcome to PM any member of the Moderator staff.
