Exclamation Forum rules and guidelines

Treat other forum members with respect. All posts, especially disagreements, should be constructive and devoid of personal attacks. We, the developers, read these forums carefully and appreciate all feedback and suggestions. Please help us maintain a positive environment.

Notice: Administrators/Moderators reserve the right to change/edit/delete any content at any time they feel it is inappropriate.

I. General Forum Rules:

Do not:
  • Flame or insult other members.
  • Troll (intentionally disrupt, cause controversy, incite argument, and/or receive negative attention by deliberately posting provocative content).
  • Post spam or make pointless posts that don't contribute to a thread (+1 10char, rickrolls).
  • Post personally identifiable information (i.e. name, address, email, phone number, etc.)
  • Bypass the swear filter or other filters.
  • Bump old threads unless you have a good reason.
  • Openly argue with a moderator. Contact the Moderator via a private message.
  • Share your account. Forum accounts are intended for the use of one person and are not to be shared.
  • Share Private Messages publicly or to another member without the consent of the original sender.
  • Post or PM Community Point referral links on the official forums.
II. The following topics are strictly off limits, including in external links:
  • Porn, gross stuff, or anything else not safe for work
  • Piracy, warez, Leaked content
  • Cheating, hacking, game exploits
  • Threats of violence or harassment, even as a joke
  • Posting copyrighted material such as magazine scans
  • Soliciting, auctioning, selling, advertising, referrals
  • Racism, discrimination
  • Drugs, alcohol
  • Religious, political, and other “prone to huge arguments” threads
III. No Backseat Moderating:

Let the Forum Moderators do the moderating. Backseat Moderating is when people who are not Moderators try to enforce the forum rules. Whenever you see a person breaking the rules, take advantage of the Report Post button . Or simply IGNORE the offensive post(s) or thread. The most common backseat reply is the "+1 in before lock" phrase. Backseat moderating is annoying, and pointless.

Report Post to the Moderators:

Should you observe a fellow forum member breaking these rules please report the post by clicking the Report Post button located in the top right corner of every post, or if that feature is unavailable feel free to contact

Lifetime Achievement Award:
Users who are found to be repeat offenders will be removed from the forums.
