Forum rules
« on: February 16, 2007, 06:32:32 PM »
In order to keep the forums running well and to prevent problems, please follow these simple rules for the forums here. If you have any questions or problems, please feel free to contact one of the Moderators.

Basic Rules

  • Please refrain from posting meaningless threads, such as one word (or short) non-sense posts, or the such.
  • Multiple or repeated posting in order to increase your post count is not allowed.
  • We also do not allow posts that are sexual in nature or violate CDF Forum community standards. The CDF Forum team shall be the sole arbitrator of what does and what does not violate community standards.
  • Advertising, spamming and trolling is not allowed. This includes using the forum email and Private message system to spam other members.
  • Discussion of illegal activities such as software and music piracy and other intellectual property violations are not allowed.
  • We reserve the right to remove offensive posts without notice.
  • If you are going to post non-English on these forums, please also post an English Translation of your post.
  • We don't like thread necromancy. Try not to bump threads that haven't been replied to for over two weeks without a good reason. Ask a morderator if your reason is good enough.
  • Do not post any NSFW content directly on the forums (NSFW content is defined as anything that most people would not want to be seen by their bosses, parents, etc.) Do not post links to content that is considered NSFW without a warning.
  • Participants may not bump threads uneccessarily (Bumping can refer to posting useless information, making corrections or updates in a new post, posting one-liners or any other action to delibrately keep a thread hot).
  • Please open new topics in the most relevant forum. The moderators and administrators reserve the right to move any topic for any reason they see fit without a link in the original forum.
  • You are responsible for your own posts and agree not to hold CDF, DragonSpires, or any other member liable for any messages posted.

Images (including Avatars and Signatures)

  • Host posted images yourself. Do not leach them (direct link to someone else's page). I recommend imageshack.
  • Do not post images of sexual acts for any kind or images containing nudity that can be considered inappropriate for minors. Suggestive is ok, but is up to the discrestion of the moderators.
  • Do not post images of explicit real-life violence.


All images should not exceed the following size limits:

  • For images in posts: up to 500 pixels wide, 300 pixels tall and 50k in size.
  • For images in avatars: up to 100 pixels wide, 100 pixels tall and 50k in size.
  • For images in signatures: a total of up to 400 pixels wide, 200 pixels tall and 50k in size.


Avatars and Signatures

  • You may use text in your signature but no more than four lines.
  • Use acceptable content. Any content that is found to be inappropriate will be removed.

The rules evolve, so check back here every so often.[/list]
