Time for an update. All please read and understand.

The GamingForums Guidelines

General Behaviour:

Treat other members with the respect they deserve. This means do not flame, slander or demean another user. Members reported for abusing another will be warned for their behaviour and banned if they persist. This applies to the main forums, the Private Messaging and Email to a Friend facility.

Posting Behaviour:

Please do not spam. There is an appropriate forum set aside for spam which you can use. Any posts deemed to be off-topic are at risk of being deleted by the forum moderators. When you make a post please ensure it is in the relevant section and is clearly titled. New threads which are started in the wrong forums will be moved or closed at Moderator’s discretion. Threads with titles deemed to be ‘opaque’ will be edited. Refrain from making multiple posts in a row. Use the edit button function as this helps keep the forums looking tidy. Please do not post threads in all capitals. It is considered akin to shouting and is not necessary. Do not overuse profanity in your posts. Members who persist in a stream of foul or abusive language risk having their posts edited by a Moderator or deleted entirely. Repeat offenders will be banned.

Advertising and Pornography:

Advertising of other sites/services or posting links to Pornography is strictly forbidden. GamingForums staff are instructed to remove any breaches they come across and to report them to their seniors. Members who advertise or post porn links will be banned from the forums.

Warez & Piracy:

Requests for warez and warez links will be treated as piracy. This includes requests or provision of CD keys, cracks, serials, and pirated software or movies of any kind. The promotion of peer-to-peer client software is also forbidden. Any member found to be breaching this guideline will be banned from GamingForums permanently.

Avatars and Signatures:

Avatars and Signatures must not contain offensive or distasteful images or slogans. Signatures must remain with acceptable limits. This means either 300 characters or an image measuring no more than 800 by 200 pixels and one line of standard sized text. Members who use signatures which fall out of these limits will have the signature feature removed.

GamingForums Staff:

Please ensure you follow the instructions of forum staff at all times. The staff work hard to keep GamingForums a fun place to be and any disrespect will be result in appropriate punishment for the member concerned. If you have an issue with a Moderator please consult a Super-Moderator privately who will take action to resolve the dispute. If an escalation occurs the final decision on the matter will rest with GamingForums Senior Administrators.

Now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

please ensure that you adhere to the guidelines as signatures can be removed if you don't. all members will get one warning to remove signatures which fall outside of the limits and then they will have the signature ability removed permanently.

[color=red]Just want to make something more clear...if you have an image in your sig, you can only have one line of standard text...does standard text mean not colored, not a different font, not a different size, or all three?[/color]
