1.2 No "Trolling": Please do not post any topic that disrupts the peace and harmony of these forums. Don't create meaningless threads with the sole purpose of starting a dispute. This includes messages in profiles and signatures.

So do not bump a thread within 24h or too much even after 24 hours. Also try and keep your posts on the right board. We have separate topics for a reason.

This includes links in your signature, profile, bookmarks as well as posted images, photos, avatars and images in the gallery. Staff will ultimately decide if something is appropriate or not.
1.6 No discussing religion or politics. These are touchy subjects and often result in arguments. So to keep things peaceful do not discuss either of them.
1.7 Your posts should not relate to illegal activities like warez, music sharing, site hacking, software cracking, pirate forums etc.
