Should any complaint of this nature be reported to Law Enforcement then we will provide any and all requested information from Law Enforcement Officers to help towards a criminal investigation.

 

Cyber Bullying / Social Media:

Any members found to be harassing or bullying members on the forums as well as outside of the forums on Social Media websites will be eligible to receive a warning strike.

If you find another member harassing you outside of the forums you should take a screenshot of the offender and what has been said, then send that screenshot AND a link to the content to the Forum Admins to deal with.

You can find a list of Admins here.

Please note, any instances of harassment / bullying on another forum will not be eligible here, you should take those issues up with the Admins of that forum. Also we can only accept complaints if you are the one being harassed.

 

Misuse of Report Function:

We ask all members to use reports responsibly. Abusing the report function (for example unfairly targeting other members, or repeatedly using it for content that clearly doesn't need moderation) is against rules and regulations, and may lead to action against the abuser.

 

Creation Website:

Boosting / Down Rating of creations is not allowed

While users are allowed to vote their own creations 10 or another person’s 1, this is only allowed with your initial vote.

All votes are logged and flagged by the system when a user is found to be manipulating the rating system using multiple IP addresses and results in an automatic warning being issued.

Failure to comply with these rules will result in a warning, with further rule breaking resulting in a suspension/banning where deemed necessary.

 

What Counts As Piracy?:

Any version of the game not authorized via the steam client is not supported on these forums.

Knowingly distributing any tools or methods of unlocking Downloadable Content for free is unauthorized.

Knowingly distributing any tools or unintended methods of gaining virtual currency is unauthorized.

 

Punishments:

1st offense- Verbal Warning / No Warning Strikes

2nd offense – 1st Warning Strike

3rd offense – 2nd Warning Strike / 2 Week Suspension

4th offense – 3rd Warning Strike / Permanent Ban

If you receive a strike and go 6 months without any further offenses it will be removed.

 

Rules are subject to change as new problems emerge that need to be addressed.
