Our forum is unique in that we hand out bans, rather than warnings.

Bans are time outs. If you are banned, you can make an appeal in the “Refugee Camp” channel on our Discord. Usually you will be unbanned if you apologise and show remorse.

The forums are currently in a state of flux and we are testing a lot of new things. Please provide constructive feedback in the {{Meta}} forum.

This is not an exhaustive list of rules. There will be individual guidelines for subforums and threads, please refer to these where appropriate.

These are garry's forums and he can do whatever he wants.

Posting Etiquette

Treat others how you would wish to be treated.

Warez is unacceptable. Do not post or ask for links, or brag about Warez.

Ratings are there to complement posts. Do not complain about getting bad ratings. You’re an idiot, deal with it.

If you create a thread you will be expected to maintain it, keeping the first post up to date with the latest developments. If you cannot commit to doing this, please leave the thread for somebody else to create.

Please do not create “callout posts”. These are posts calling on users to explain something when the said user has no involvement in the thread (e.g. “DEFEND THIS, HEZZY!”)

Do not post whilst under the influence.

Memes are generally not allowed, however there are a few exceptions to this where they have entered popular vocabulary (such as “REE” used in context)

Do not bump old threads unless there is a good reason.

The language of this forum is English and we expect you to communicate in this language. The only exception is if you are posting in a thread dedicated to foreign languages.

Not Safe For Work Content

All avatars and backgrounds should be of a standard that is safe for work, meaning no cropped pornography or questionable material.

Pornography is only allowed within the "Schindler's Fist" forum.

Pictures of gore are not allowed.

Please do not share or post pictures of injured / dead people in the wake of terrorist attacks.
