Board rules





Every offence against the rules of the Forums (the now following general rules and of course the special rules for some subforums) may lead to a warning.
The Administrators of the forums has the right to ban accounts on the forums and maybe even ingame and on IRC in extreme cases. The interpretation of the rules is up to the board team.



§1 Accounts, Warnings and Bannings
  • Every User may register and use one account. Multiple registrations and usage of several accounts may lead to a banning of all accounts.
  • After receiving the third warning an account may be banned up to 2 weeks, in extreme cases longer. The circumventing of the ban by registering a second account is not allowed. An account may get banned permanently if the user receives again several warnings after the account was unlocked.
  • In extreme cases it is possible a User gets banned without having several warnings.
  • Editing a post after a warning was given (this includes removing or editing the warning) is against the rule and can lead to a ban from the forums.

§2 Attitude on the forums
  • Posting contents and links of pornographic, politically extremist, immoral and offensive material, which may breach applicable laws, are forbidden.
  • It is also not allowed to post keys, hacks, cracks or other things of illegal nature, including illegal download pages and "warez". Discussion of such items will lead to an immediate warning.
  • It is not allowed to post private conversations (board PM, IRC, MSN, ingame PM) without the consent of all the other parties.
  • Posting of contents which do not belong to the topic / relevant forum (Spam/Offtopic) are undesired and may lead to a warning. An exception of this is the “Gossip” (the spamboard).
  • “Backseat modding”, pretending like a moderator, is not allowed. If you find a post not according to the rules, just report the post to a moderator.
  • Images in signatures and posts may not exceed the following measurements:
    Height: 150 px
    Width: 450 px
    Size: 100 kb
    OR
    Height: 100 px
    Width: 500 px
    Size: 100 kb
    One picture per signature.
  • Signatures must not have more than 3 lines of standard sized text.
  • Moderators may remove any pictures deemed to be oversized at any time. No more than 5 pictures may be placed inside any single post.
  • Due to information sometimes needed to be passed on to users, staff may sometimes have an extension on the size of the image, or text placed in the signature.
  • Team Members are allowed to have bigger signatures, with permission from the board administration.
  • Flaming, offences against other users or staff, inappropriate language and trolling are punishable on the whole forum.
  • The board team holds the right to censor threads. This will be marked in the relevant post.
  • Reposting of a theme that was already closed is not allowed. If you wish to post in it, ask the moderator who closed it to reopen.
  • Trading of Ingame accounts is prohibited throughout the entire board except in Account Trading sections.
  • Advertisement and linking to other non-Gameforge browsergames is not allowed on the whole forums, including the PC Forum. Links to games with the aim to count every visitor are not allowed.
  • Mug links are only allowed in signatures on this board.
  • The board language is English, and only English. No other language is to be used anywhere in the forum, including signatures, avatars, etc.
  • Requests to unban ingame accounts are not to be discussed anywhere on the forums. Please get in contact to the Game Operator who banned you via Ticket Support only.
  • Spamming of emoticons and images is not allowed due to the fact that it may freeze peoples’ computers. Images or postings which are side exceeding (means one has to scroll vertically or/and horizontally to read all) are not allowed.
  • All posts must contain a minimum of 4 words; fewer words will be considered as spam and warned accordingly. Any forms of abbreviations such as: ICU, BRB, LOL, ROFLMAO, will be considered one word.
  • If you feel warned unfairly, first PM the moderator who gave the warning via Ticket Support. Then you may get in contact the Smod. In extreme cases you have the right to talk to a Board Admin. The Board Admins’ word is final. Follow the hierarchy, or you may find you are ignored (include all previous communication).
  • Impersonation of a staff member (name, avatar, signature) may lead to a warning or in extreme cases to a ban.
  • Posthunting (posting just to get a higher postcount) results in a warning or in extreme cases in a direct ban.
  • It is not allowed to post in CAPS (capital letters).
  • t's not allowed to post for banned people without the banned user asking permission from a Super Moderator or Board Administrator.
  • Discussion of bans or warnings is not permitted in the public forums, this may result in further bans or warnings. Please discuss these issues with the moderator involved or their superior on the board only.
  • Double posting (posting after your own post) is only allowed if you have new (important) information you want to add to your post. If you are able to edit your post, which is possible within 120 minutes after posting, you are not allowed to post two in a row.
  • The report button is only to be used when someone breaches the forum rules. Misuse of the report button will lead in a warning.

§3 Notes

    The following themes are to be discussed with the board administration:
  • - Signature Bans (via Ticket Support only.)
  • - Unban request (via Ticket Support only.)
  • - User title – Name changes (via Ticket Support only.)
  • - Complains about Smods (concerning Mods, please get first in contact with a Smod via Ticket Support.)



The staff reserves the right to change rules when they deem it necessary.
The use of these forums is a privilege, not a right. Administrators reserve the right to do what they think is best for the forums, including the banning of people.
