If you break these rules, you'll earn an instant ban regardless of which moderator sees the post(s).

  • Using racist, sexist, homophobic or hateful language.
  • Linking to viruses, referral sites, or maliciously coded websites either in your signature or in your post.
  • Discussing illegal activities – including, but not limited to: ROMs, cracks, warez and hacking.
  • Instigating or discussing malicious attacks on other websites
  • Posting with an alternate account whilst banned or your main account while an alt is banned. Both accounts may be deleted.
  • Posting any member's real life information without permission.
  • Impersonating Administrators, Moderators
  • Bumping any old topic without a good reason and new information.
  • Making multiple short posts (five words or less) over a short time period.
  • Attempting to smartass your way around these rules.

If you break these rules, you're definitely risking being banned. Think before you post.

  • Complaining or boasting about any ban, including comments in signature text.

  • ALL CAPS posting.
  • Chasing / harassing / flaming other users, regardless of who instigated it.
  • Harassing other users by having a continuous negative or bitter attitude towards them.
  • Insulting or harassing the moderators or administrators.
  • Trolling: cruising the boards looking for a fight.
  • Repeatedly advertising your website.
  • Recreating a thread that has been created recently. Take a second to look before hitting "New Topic".
  • Posting excessively in a language other than English for the sole purpose of excluding the majority of the users.
  • Creating parody threads or posting with gimmick accounts.
  • Attempting to smartass your way around these rules.

General Conduct

Before making a topic make sure you are posting in the correct forum. The moderators don't have tools to move your topic, so if it doesn't belong it will be deleted. It should be pretty clear where to post since each forum has a description. When making a topic in the general forum, try to keep it somewhat NG-related, too. We don't need to know what you ate for breakfast!

Give your topic a good title! This is often overlooked, and "WTF?" gives no clue as to what your topic will be about.

Before posting a topic, please ask yourself the following question: "Am I making a post which is either funny, informative, or interesting on some level?" If you can answer "yes" to this, then please post. If you cannot, then refrain.

Before replying, please ask yourself: "Does my reply offer any significant advice or help contribute to the conversation in any fashion?" (As a side note, posting "Use the search bar" is never helpful. First, if you have used the search bar and have found something relevant, just post the relevant link instead. Next, how can you presume that the person posting comments hasn't already tried the search bar and didn't find what they're looking for?)

Some simple guidelines:

  • Use proper punctuation and grammar.
  • Ignorance of the rules is not an excuse not to follow them.
  • Lurk first, post second. Read the entirety of every thread you post in before you post.
