The "come one, come all"-thread was starting to get filled up and with the recent flood of spammers, I have some things to add.
Okay, in the off-topic forum, you can talk about whatever you like within certain limits:
Like in the other forums:
- No copy protection codes
- No warez/abandonwares links
- No links to porn/offensive sites
While this forum basically encourages free discussion, I'd like to ask everyone here to keep the talk tasteful and try to avoid controversial topics which are certain to end up in heated arguments.
Also, try to remain slightly on-topic in threads unless the original creator of the thread indicates that he considers the original subject a finished business.
One more thing, I'd like to adress is advertising/spamming.
These forums are here for MEMBERS to discuss OT-subjects. A member is a person who visits here regularly or occasionally. A member is NOT someone who comes here, posts a link of some sort in his first post and then gets out of here never to come back. We don't uphold this community so others can tap into our fanbase for free publicity. Someone on another board said about posts like those:
no interest in the forum
no real value
Very well spoken, I say. I couldn't agree more with it.
If you're a regular visitor on these forums and you wish to share some information about your interests (which may include your site) and it fits the topic of the discussion, I'll be willing to overlook it. But blatant ads will be deleted on sight from now on, since they really clutter up the forums. To make things more clear about things like Outwar, Kings of Chaos and all those other online RPG's:"It is not allowed to post recruitment links for games like Kings of Chaos, Outwar, Master of Medieval Times, Everwars or any other online RPG where players increase their army/character's strength by posting their profile-links on the internet unless personal permission from one of the board administrators is given! In this case, we'll post in that thread and tell the poster it's okay. In 99% of all cases, those recruitment-links are considered spam."
If there are any further questions, I'll answer them, but only questions in this thread please.
