Forum Rules

  • Forum Rules

    By registering an account in the forum, you agreed to follow the next rules.

    1. Forum accounts

    • Every user must keep their login data private. Therefore account sharing isn't allowed and will result in a permanent ban from the forum. Your account belongs to you and you are responsible for the content posted from your account.
    • Every user can have only one account in the forum. Multi-accounts are not allowed and will lead to a permanent ban from the forum.
    • If you share IP with another person (friends, family, etc) remember to notify about it via forum support system. Notifications after a ban or any other measure won't be considered.
    • Usage of any IP maskers / Anonymization services (VPN, GPN, Proxy, etc) is not allowed.
    • Using throw-away email addresses is not allowed.
    • Banned users have lost the right to participate in the forum. For that reason, they are not allowed to register again. If you want to object your ban, do it via the support system.
    • You can request for your account data to be deleted, by sending a ticket to the forum support system. The account deletion is permanent.
      - If you ask to delete your account, you will be able to register a new one. However, if you had any prior warnings or temp bans you will have to contact the Forum Team via support system to notify about the newly created account and your previous punishments within the next 48 hours. Your deleted account's warnings and temp bans will carry over to your new account. Omitting this notification could lead to a permanent ban from the forum.
