Please private message an Admin, if you have any questions about or need an exception to the rules and guidelines below.

We divide the forum rules into two categories: Class One Offenses and Class Two Offenses

  • Class One Offenses result in an immediate ban.
  • Class Two Offenses result in a 20% warning.
    1. Each warning expires automatically in six months;
    2. Five warnings (100%) in six months will result in a one-week ban; and
    3. Each additional two warnings within a six-month period will trigger a forum membership vote to decide between a ban for life and a two-week ban.

Class One Offenses
  • Holding an account under the age of 13. In order to comply with the FTC’s Children’s Online Privacy Act of 1998, all members must be at least 13 years old.
  • Using multiple accounts for malicious purposes. We define malicious activity as using duplicate account(s) to:
    1. Post spam;
    2. Vote more than once in elections and polls;
