USE COMMON SENSE!
This is a community group and all we ask is that you treat other people with respect and use common sense. Spamming, flaming, trolling and general misconduct is unacceptable in most contexts. Any behavior which is corrosive to the participation of others, or creates a hostile environment, could result in a suspension or permanent ban at the discretion of administrators. This includes but is not limited to our website, TeamSpeak services, game servers, and in-game.Disallowed Content
- Pornography is disallowed in any context and/or media format, posting porn in any form will result in an immediate suspension of your account. No pictures that suggest or imply sexual readiness. This includes all mediums, whether it is a real image or drawn artwork or other type of image. We do allow artistic nudity however you must use common sense. For example, we do not allow the posting of pornstars not having sex as an artistic medium. Administrator discretion applies.
- No links, domain names or any other kind of information that leads people to pornographic material will be tolerated
- Sexual Solicitation - Asking or suggesting to a member (or members) to participate in any form of sexual activity
Posting of disallowed material will result in 15 warning points and suspension of your account.Cheating
We take cheating VERY seriously. Cheating of any kind is not allowed in this community, whether it's in the form of 3rd party software, hardware or software modifications, or abusing in-game exploits that are not intentionally part of the game's design. Also note that intentionally trying to gather false evidence, or creating fake replays for the sole intention of ruining someone's reputation and/or trying to get them banned from this site/clan, tournaments, or leagues, is also considered cheating. Ultimately, the definition of what is classified as cheating is at the discretion of administrators.
Cheating will earn an instant 56 warning points and at minimum a four week suspension from this site/clan for the first offense. Any subsequent instances of cheating in any form will earn a permanent ban, no exceptions.Profile/Account/Signature/Avatar
