These are the Rules of the forums:

  • No swearing. This includes abbreviations.
  • No racial slurs and insults.
  • No rapr crunk or 1337sp34k.
  • Please use proper grammar.
  • No sexual content or pornography, or links to any sites with it.
  • Signature images must NOT exceed 500x220.
  • Do not double-post. Use the "Edit" or "Modify" button instead.
  • Do not post with only emoticons.
  • Do not spam with emoticons in posts or signature.
  • Do not type in all CAPs as it's considered shouting and rude.
  • Use descriptive thread titles. DO NOT use topic titles such as "Question", describe your question instead.
  • Please read the WHOLE topic before asking questions. Your question may have already been answered.
  • Impersonation is simply NOT tolerated. Anyone caught impersonating another individual will be IP banned IMMEDIATELY.
  • Discussion of piracy of any form will NOT be tolerated.
  • Do not register multiple accounts. If caught, all accounts will be banned.
  • Do not hijack topics and go off-topic.
  • Allow the moderators to moderate the posts--no "junior moderator" comments, please.
  • Avoid political and religious topics.
  • No "pointless" replies such as "I don't know" or "maybe".
  • Do not attempt to recruit members, new or old, into your clan in posts unless they specifically asked about joining clans.
  • Do not bump your own topics unless they are over thirty days old.
  • Do not post topic titles in all caps. Typing in all caps is considered yelling, so please avoid posting in all caps regardless if it is a thread title or not.
  • Refrain from posting in any topic over a month old unless you have something useful to contribute to the topic at hand. If you want to talk about something else, make a new topic for it.

  • Radar usage has already been discussed at length here.  Some people want it, some people don't.   We really don't need further discussions as it has been talked about thoroughly in the past. Click here for the reasoning behind this rule.
  • Do not call out any individual or clan on an issue. You are free to discuss anything (except that which is prohibited by rules) but we also want everything to remain constructive and civil.

  • Instances of perceived "cyber-bullying" will be dealt with swiftly and decisively. Examples include using this forum as a base of operations to attack other members throughout the internet.

  • Setting up web and social media accounts using the SWBFgamers name or likeness; or willful misrepresentation of SWBFgamers likeness, resources, or media without permission may result in a permanent ban without warning.

  • Quote from: Led on February 19, 2013, 06:46:54 AMI have set up some private clan boards. The public forum rules against cursing, etc.  do not apply.  However, you are still not allowed to do anything that is not legal in there

Staff reserves the right to determine punishments for offenders, which may include temporary or permanent bans.
