Retired Network Staff

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 higher staff, [COLOR="Red"]admins[/COLOR] and [COLOR="Green"]super moderators[/COLOR]). 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. Posts can be reported to staff via the button which is located in the top-right section of every post.
The rules: Please, 1) Don’t abuse the report service. 2) Don't insult the moderators, if you disagree with them send a private message and talk to them in a normal manner. 3) Don’t use these forums for personal attacks, name calling, insults, and so forth. This includes posting suspected cheaters.Treat other members with the respect they deserve. This means do not flame, slander or demean another user. 4) Don't post links to cheats being used in the multiplayer part of the game. Don’t start new threads on the topic of these cheats. Single-Player cheats are fine. 5) Don't post links to Warez (illegal software). Doing so will get you banned. 6) Don't expect or ask for help with the game if it you got the game the illegal way. 7) Don’t advertise services that you have to pay for. 8) Don’t use extremely large signature images (800x160px max). Check Here for details. 9) Don’t put entire posts in Capitols (Caps-Locked). 10) Don't spam. If you have nothing useful / constructive to say, don't say anything at all. 11) don't bump (revive) old threads (above 3 weeks old)
On these forums we have a system that disables old threads after a certain amount of time, if you want your own thread reopened just ask one of us to do so.
