We get flooded with hundreds of spam registrations a day. in order to keep up, we have to make generalizations on which registrations we accept. If you are joining, and know someone on the board, have them send me a PM with your registration info so i can be sure to accept your registration.
DO NOT share accounts with other board members. If you do this, you are asking for trouble as that person will have no accountability for their actions. It can easily get you banned. Posting your account password on a public forum is grounds for a ban. this ban will be repealed upon contacting a mod for a password reset.
We use the warning system. If you receive an increase in warning level, please stop the behavior you were warned for, or risk being suspended/banned. This way, if i see you doing something, and another mod comes by and sees you doing the same thing, and that you have been warned already, he does not have to bother warning you again.
warning level can be decreased if you start an awesome thread. this is done at the moderator's discretion.
Do not use your member title to extend your avatar/profile area.
Starting shortly, all threads more than 1 year old will be deleted. please do not necro post. If you want something saved, save the "print this topic" version of the page on your own.
Maximum Signature length is 250 pixels. Any signatures longer than that will be cut off.
