In order to make these forums a better place, there are a few rules that you should stick to. The maximum penalty for breaking one or more of these rules will be being banned from the forums (up to the moderator). It's the responsibility of each user to read & follow the GamingForums Rules & Guidelines. The staff ARE NOT obligated to give you a warning before or after banning your account for lack of obeying these rules, however, members violating these rules should be warned for their behaviour and will be banned if they persist. This applies to the main forums, the Private Messaging and Email to a Friend facility.
