Trolling, taunting and engaging in flame wars will not be tolerated. If another member is taunting you and attempting to steer your discussion into a pointless flame war, do not respond, but rather report the post to staff.

Any post containing illegal content or encouraging illegal intent will be removed and steps will be taken against the account.

Linking to other websites

You may post links to external websites (including your own website) if relevant to the thread topic. Make sure to include a description or discussion about the website you are linking to. Posting just a link by itself will result in deletion of the link.

The following types of links are strictly prohibited:

Links to websites displaying adult content.
Links to websites displaying illegal content or engaging in illegal activity, including pirated downloads.
Links to casino or gambling websites.
Links to pyramid schemes.
Affiliate links.

No images or banners allowed in your signature.
No ads or solicitations. admins, editors and moderators have the right to delete or edit your signature at their own discretion if deemed inappropriate for any reason.

Warnings, infractions, suspensions and terminations

If you violate the rules, the following actions may be taken on your account by depending on the severity of the violation:

Warnings: You will receive a warning on your account. These are usually given for minor and first time violations.
Infractions: One or more infraction points, depending on the severity of the violation, will be added to your account balance. Infractions fade over time, so don't panic if you receive one. Your infraction points will eventually clear, as long as you do not persist in violating the rules. If you do keep accumulating points, you will be suspended for an amount of time depending on the number of points you've accumulated. Accumulating 20 points will result in a permament ban.
Suspension: Regardless of the existence of a warning or infraction history, your account can be suspended by staff if your violation is deemed very severe. Suspension means that your account is disabled for a period of time proportionate to the severity of your violation.
Termination: Regardless of the existence of a warning, infraction or suspension history, your account may be terminated by admins at any given time. This will only be used in extremely severe circumstances.

Specific forums might have additional rules or guidelines, generally posted as a thread at the top of the forum.

Rules are subject to change at any time, and it is the member's responsibility to periodically check the rules page (posted at the top of every forum).
