    The Forum General Rules

    Every User may register and use one account. Multiple registrations and usage of several accounts may lead to a banning of all accounts

    Welcome to The Godish GFX Addicts forums, we hope that you enjoy you time here and more importantly continue to come back to visit. If you are here, you are trying to get a general idea of the rules of the forum and for that I tip my hat off to you. The first step to an enjoyable time on any site is being familiar with the rules of them.

    While different section of the forum will have additional rules, there are the universal rules that apply to the entire forum.

    1. This Forum is PG-13

    This forum has a wide range of ages and it welcomes all of them. We want to make this a friendly environment that everyone can enjoy. Now what exactly does "PG-13" entail? Well I shall list a few things that you should avoid while you are here.
    The following things to avoid include, but are not limited to:

    * Swearing
    * Sexual Content
    * Any form of intolerance/harassment because of religion, race, gender, etc. Discrimination is not allowed.
    * Illegal drug references

    The above is for all aspects of the forum. Posts, Avatars, Signatures, etc~

    2. Respect

    Respect others if you want to be respected. Your fellow users deserve just as much respect as the staff. Each of you is a person, and although it’s easy to forget you are talking to another human being on the other end of this "internet world." Keep that in mind when speaking to people. A general good rule of thumbs is to treat people the way you would want to be treated.

    Now, while the staff is not infallible, they are staff for a reason. Meaning, if they tell you that what you are doing is wrong, it probably is and you should stop. The staff knows what they are doing, and are only looking out for your best interest. Do not make their job harder by arguing with them over trivial matters.

    Do not Flame

    We don't expect you to like everyone, but we do expect you to tolerate them. If you don't like a user or a staff member you don't have to interact with them, and so long as you aren't going out of your way to break rules, they won't bother you. Flaming users and staff members alike is prohibited. We're all here for fun, and that gives you no right to flame them. Speaking calmly and coherently to a person is much more effective then out and out telling them they are stupid/wrong. You'll only make enemies if you do this.

    3. 1. Do Not Spam

    Making a post in a thread that has no relevance to that specific topic is considered spam. We here at GGA wish to keep the forum looking as professional and clean as possible. This means if you don't have anything to add to the conversation, don't say it. Also, be sure to [keep on topic] of the thread, if you don't it’s considered not relevant to the thread and therefore, spam.

    Before posting ask yourself the following questions:

    * Has this topic been posted and fully answered somewhere else?
    * Am I contributing to the topic?
    * Is my post only consisting of things like "Cool, thanx" "Whoa, never noticed that" or the ever wonderful "What?" "I don't care." "Troll" "n00b" or "I agree." If it’s not helping the topic, its spam
    * Is this the correct section to post this thread in?

    Also, another side note to this topic. If you thread is closed, or deleted by any of the staff member, do not post it again. It was closed for a reason, reopening it is blatant disregard for the staff and will probably get you warned by the staff and possibly a ban if the subject is not dropped. If you wish to re-open a topic that was closed, first contact the staff member who closed it.

    3. 2 Double Posting

    Double posting is when you make a post directly after yours. You are allowed to make a double post after 48 hours from you last one.

    3. 3 Format Spamming

    Refrain from spamming text formatting/BBcode. This includes, but is not limited to CAPS, bold, underlining, and/or using obnoxious colors (i.e. hot pink, neon green).

    4. Refrain from giving out Personal Information

    We do not condone the exchanging of personal information. It's a dangerous thing to do and We will not be held liable for any damages that may occur from this exchange of information.

    5. Know the staff and the Rules of each section

    While this is universal for the forum, each section has its own protocol that is an addition to these rules. Now, Mods and Admins control this site, and keep it running swiftly and smoothly. Respect them, and do not argue with them. While they aren't always correct, they do know what they are doing, so it would be in your best interest to follow the rules and what they say. If you feel that there is corruptness, or unfair treatment and you have substantial proof, then bring it to an administrator and they will further the investigation, dealing with it according.

    6. Language

    In all public areas of the forum the language you are required to speak is English. Our moderating staff cannot possibly know every language, and as such, cannot moderate any messages in languages they do not understand, to prevent harassment out of the moderators control, all other languages are only to be used in PM's.

    7. Signatures

    Images in signatures may not exceed the following measurements :

    Height: 150 px
    Width: 450 px
    Size : 70 kb


    Height: 100 px
    Width: 500 px
    Size : 70 kb

    One tow images per signature max.

    This forum is made to have fun on and we hope that you do so. Each section has a different purpose.

    Additional Info

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The following themes are to be discussed with the board administration:

    - Signature Bans
    - Unban request (via email)
    - User title – Name changes
    - Complains about Mod's

    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.
