Forum Rules

Postby PaulDesmond » Tue Aug 20, 2013 9:45 am

The breach of any rule will be taken seriously. Generally all users will have 1-3 warnings before a ban, depending on the severity of their actions. After a maximum of 3 warnings you will be issued a permanent ban without any chances to return. Some rules are exempt from this and bans will be issued on a first time basis. Please make sure you read the rules carefully and follow them fully.

These rules may be updated and changed at any time. Changes will be reported on the forum. It is your responsibility to make yourself aware of all rule changes by reading forum announcements.
