The Forum Rules
Do not insult or flame other forum members.
The staff recognizes that not all relationships are perfect, and that disagreements will occasionally arise. We ask that any members involved in a disagreement, please maintain a level of maturity. This means no name-calling or personal insults. Members who behave in a bad manner will be warned, followed by a temporary ban. Also, if the disagreement has nothing to do with this board and/or its staff or members, please keep it off this board, to be resolved in private, or on the board in which it originated. Members who violate this rule will be warned, followed by a temporary ban or potentially a full ban.
Any instances of racism, sexism, or discriminatory behaviour will result in an investigation. A lifetime ban will be issued to ANYONE found guilty.
No pornography or links to pornography.
Pornographic images or links to any kind of pornographic material is forbidden. Any forum member violating this rule will be warned and possibly banned from the forums.
This includes posting links to other websites or posting topics advertising other services. The only exception being links to source material. You may ask for permission to promote charity related advertising. Or you may also ask to become affiliated with us. In most cases we'll scratch your back if you scratch ours. In all cases you must ask permission!
Post in the right forums.
If your topic is about something that we have a forum for, post it there.
Don't post something off-topic just because you think you'll get "better responses" in a particular forum.
Do not double or triple post.
There is an edit button in the top right hand corner of your post. Please use it if you'd like to say something more. Bumping is allowed but please leave at least 12 hours between bumps.
Any kind of advertising about other websites or message board is not allowed. If you wish to advertise any other site.
Any flooding with useless content is strongly forbidden.
Posting pointless threads and polls is also counted as spamming and will be taken seriously Spamming is defined as the following: topics made with the intent of flooding a forum and causing legitimate posts to be deleted and advertising in any forum.
Trading or posting links about the downloading of copyrighted material will not be tolerated.
Search for threads before posting a new topic.
If a moderator has edited/locked/deleted a thread, DO NOT create an identical thread in its place.
We at Gears of War Fans understand that this is a forum for your voice.
Editing or deletion of posts is either a matter of urgency or a last resort. However...
GOWF Admins and Moderators have the ability to edit and/or remove objectionable messages. We reserve the right to edit or delete any message for any reason, at our sole discretion. We will occasionally warn the user before this takes place, but we are under no obligation to do so. Reposting the same material or offensive post after it was removed or locked is grounds for an immediate ban. Public complaining about the removal or closure of any message or thread is grounds for expulsion.
Each user is only allowed one individual account per person. Creation of second or third accounts will result in the additional accounts being banned and the old account getting a temporary ban, with a term based upon the severity of the offense. After multiple violations, the ban will become final.
The forum staff reserves the right to change/add to these rules at any time.
Thank you for reading and abiding by the above rules.
