#1.2Do not mini-mod.
We would like to encourage and thank members to use the report button

serious offense and may lead to a permanent ban.

Posting Etiquette (manners)
#2.1 Members who disobey the rules will be warned or banned depending on what the moderator believes is the appropriate punishment.
Members can be warned a maximum of two times consequently. On the
third, the member will be immediately banned. This does not mean that
you have to have a warning to get banned, moderators may ban you without
warnings depending on the offense.
A warning can have a time bomb unless you're banned. If a time bomb is
set, your warning will automatically expire after a certain number of
If you believe you do not deserve the warn please contact the moderator
who warned you. Talking back to the moderator who gave you the warning
with no sense of respect will lead to further warnings.
If you do not know why you received a warning, an email and/or private
message would have been sent to notify you of the reason why you were
warned and who warned you.
#3.1 All topics must contain a valid description.
#3.2 Treat others positively and with respect. Flaming other members or other forums will lead to a warning, possibly even a ban.
#3.3 Topics must be submitted to the relevant forums. Please read the forum descriptions before posting.
#3.4 Topic titles must have an appropriate description.
An example for a good description is "Help needed with game".

Bumping is allowed provided that the reply has relevant information
that is useful to the continuance of the topic. Short intervals of bumps
are not allowed to bump the topic up onto the first page by the same
Allowed: A topic discusses a news event. The topic's discussion has died
but there is new striking evidence to turn thoughts around. A reply
with such information that is relevant and useful is allowed.
Allowed: Requests may only be bumped once every 48 hours since the last reply.
Disallowed: Bumping topics continuously to get them up to the first few
pages. This includes using additional accounts (either your own or
others) to do so.
Double posting of the same links (also called dupe) may lead to a
warning, especially if you have your own independent topic for a set of
links and yet still post the same links in related topics with the
intention of gaining exposure.
It is generally forbidden to double post on the board. It means that
you are not allowed to reply twice in a row in any topic. Use the edit
button when altering your reply if you're the last to post in the topic.
Exceptions may be found at #3.20.

are only allowed a maximum of twice per page. This rule only applies to posts made on or after April 16th 2008.
Members are allowed to make a huge topic with an index on first post
only if all the download links are posted in the same thread as
their previous post has exceeded the maximum characters limit, or if
they have relevant content to add to their topic 24 hours after the
previous reply was made, members are allowed to double or triple post.
Trades of any kind and selling are two things that are not allowed
here. To break it down in simple terms, it's considered a trade any
time the situation is "If you do this, I'll do that" and selling is
offering a product, service, etc. for money. The staff do not
appreciate members trying to get around these rules, so please avoid
attempting to do so.
Posting games hacks & cheats is allowed as long as they only affect
the offline side of the game. It is forbidden to post any online hack
(aimbot, wallhack, ...).
You may only promote your website once. This may be done in the Link
Farms section and only applies to sites that are within the rules.
#4.2 If you choose to post a link it should benefit everyone and must not be a site of the following categories:
Web hosting. Referrals. Affiliation. warez forums. Sites that
require registration, subscription or a fee to access. Links within
posts that links to non-allowed 3rd party in order to gain access to the content (eg Link protectors, Text files, Altered links, Links directory...).
Rule #4.3 has been omitted for the time being.
#4.4 Excessive posting of similar messages to increase post count is not allowed.
#4.5 Rule #4.5 has been omitted.

These are only guidelines not strictly limited to just these examples.
Avatars and Signatures
#5.1 All rules apply in regard to private messaging.
It is the responsibility of each member to check their private messages
when online, as certain private messages from staff members may require
prompt answers. Members who ignore these messages from staff may be
warned, locked or banned, depending on the situation.

#6.3 Signatures can only be 100KB or less in total file size.
Sticky Requests: Please do not request a post to be made sticky. If
there is room to make an exceptional post as sticky, we will do so;
however, there is only room for ten stickies per forum. Topics which use
a poll to petition a sticky are not allowed.
#7.2 Rule #7.2 has been omitted for the time being.
Asking any staff member if you can be a part of the staff will hinder
your chance of ever becoming one.

All forum rules apply to every image posted in messages, signatures,
avatars and PM's. Images must not contain words that bypass our
word censor or any type of serial number.
These rules are modified from an original set of rules used from another website. If there is any problem with what you see in these rules, please tell us in the forum comments section of Dock Penguins.
