Posts are to be made in the relevant forum. Users are asked to read the forum descriptions before posting. Users consistently posting to the wrong forum may be given a warning
Members should post in a way that is respectful of other users. Flaming or abusing users in any way will not be tolerated and will lead to a warning.
Members are asked to not act as “back seat moderators”. If members note an issue which contravenes something noted in the forum rules, they are welcome to bring it to the attention of a member of the Moderator Team. Please use the “post report” feature to report
posts. Do not respond to such topics yourself. Members who constantly “act” as moderators may be warned.
Members should remember this board is aimed at a general gaming audience. Posting pornographic or generally offensive text, images, links, etc. will not be tolerated and will lead to a warning.
Members are asked to respect the copyright of other users, sites, media, etc. Users linking to or asking for information on warez, crackz, etc. or re-printing material without permission will receive a warning and their post will be removed.
Members are asked only to post in English, as this is an English speaking community.
Members should respect the bandwidth of other users and sites. The use of inline () image tags pointing to data stored on third party systems for which the user has not received permission to link to may be removed.
Members should post in a way which is consistent with “normal writing”. That is, users should not post excessive numbers of emoticons, large, small or coloured text, etc. Similarly users should not SHOUT or use excessive punctuation (e.g. ! and ?) in thread titles or posts. Users consistently abusing this will be warned.
Members should use an appropriate, descriptive subject when posting a new thread. Examples of bad subjects include; “Help!”, “Some stuff”, “I see that”, etc. Examples of good subjects include; “Help, cannot login to DTP”, “Information on Verifying your account”, etc.
Spam is not tolerated here under any circumstance. Recruiting members for your own projects (moderators, designers, professional MOD work, etc.) is not permitted and is also considered spam when not linked directly or for Dark Gaming. Users posting spam will be warned and their post removed. See specific item on spam and 3rd party linking for more information.
Members are asked to not disclose to any 3rd party, board, or list any vulnerabilities in the software used by Dark Gaming before first notifying the staff members privately. You should submit all finds via a Personal Message. Time should be allowed for us to respond.
The moderating, support and other teams reserve the right to edit, remove or put on moderation queue any post at any time.
The above forum rules where applicable also apply to private messaging. Abuse of the private messaging system may lead to warnings (as above) and/or the revocation of private messaging.
Users are permitted to utilise a gallery avatar or to upload and use one of their own. User defined avatars are recommended to be no larger than 120 pixels square and must contain no animation, contain no image which attempts to portray the user as having an official status here (e.g. mimicking ranks or copying avatars of team members).
Avatars are subject to the same conditions as posts with respect decency, and so forth.
Users abusing these rules will be warned and/or may lose their avatar privileges.
