It is also prohibited to protest staff actions in titles, avatars, signatures, and the chat box. If you do not like something that a staff member said/did, DO NOT discuss this in the forums. If necessary, PM or email the staff member and try your best to resolve the problem or difference in a private manner. 5.2 Staff has final say in any dispute. Moderators and Admins have been instilled with special privileges due to the trustworthiness and dedication they show to the site. All staff have the right to, without question, violate any rule herein they deem necessary for the benefit of the site. Site Administration reserves the right to grant the same privilege under extenuating circumstances to certain users. Staff have supreme authority, and as such, all grievances are to be directed to Site Administration. Any user found disregarding this is subject to account termination. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- REPORTING ABUSE 6.1 If you have a complaint about another member, problems with other members, etc., please try to resolve the problem in a personal message. If necessary, address an admin or moderator by reporting their post. 6.2 If you believe an individual is repeatedly breaking the rules, please report to one of Administrators. Repeating offenders will be banned from the forum, and further action may be taken against them. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- BANNED MEMBERS 7.1 Any Regular or Gold Member always have priority over banned members, because banned members got banned for a reason. It's their own fault. 7.2 Banned members will be blocked from all IM services and every page on TheTechGame. E-mail(s) sent from the banned user to staff members will be ignored until the ban is lifted. 7.3 TheTechGame website's staff members are not required to notify why the user was banned, though we most likely will do so. 7.4 Should you be disciplined with a restriction or ban, you are not allowed to open a new account to obtain freedom to post. Restrictions and bans are given for a reason, and usurping that ability by re-registering is not tolerated. If another account is opened, that account will be banned immediately, and the original account will be further penalized. 7.5 It is not our problem if it is your brother, cousin, best friend, mom, dad, girlfriend, boyfriend, or kitten that got your account banned. If it turns out that your account is suffering from their wrongdoing, that is an issue you'll have to take up with them. Your account will not receive any reduction in suspension. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- AVATARS, SIGNATURES, AND BANNERS 8.1 Absolutely no nudity or offensive material in your avatar, banner, or signature will be permitted. 8.2 No commercial, business and/or website promotion/advertisement in your avatar, banner, or signature will be permitted. 8.3 Be wary when hotlinking to images. If you hotlink to an image on a site with malware, it gives other users an error whenever they view a thread you post in. If a staff member sees this, we can and will reset your avatar (and you may lose avatar/banner/signature privileges respectively). 8.4 "Army" graphics are permitted, however, any post in the forums regarding an "Army" will be deleted promptly and the poster will be issued a warning. It causes un-needed conflict and stupidity between members, and will not be tolerated. 8.5 You may not display a site badge within your avatar, signature or banner if you have not been awarded it. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- CONTENT AND LEGAL ISSUES 9.1 Although we would all like to post and leech off of shareware and illegal files such as an exploit, we can't. NOBODY is allowed to post any links or upload any files that are meant to be purchased or have copyrights attached to them saying the file(s) cannot be distributed freely. If we see any posts or chat discussions pertaining to the distribution of illegal software and/or files, that content will be removed as soon as possible and the user will receive a ban. The length of the ban will be determined by TheTechGame website's staff and will vary depending on the volume and type of content the software or file(s) contained. Legal action may be taken by the copyright holder at their discretion, though this is an issue of the End User. TheTechGame holds no liability for the actions or opinions of its users. 9.2 NDAs (Non-Disclosure Agreements) are signed, in most cases, after applying for testing of products/hardware/software. Posting of content violating these NDAs will not be tolerated under any circumstances. Any user found posting such content will be promptly dealt with, and reported to the copyright holders. Any legal action taken regarding these situations is solely placed on the End User. TheTechGame does not condone such activity, and holds no liability for such actions. 9.3 Social Engineering - Do not post HOW to defraud companies or other entities on the site. This includes telling lies to customer support for example in order to get free items under the guise of deceit. This is dishonest behavior and it will NOT be tolerated on this website. 9.4 Fraud - Do not post ANYTHING related to the act of or offering to commit fraud in ANY way, shape, or form. 9.5 License Transfering is not allowed on the forums. This is for several reasons but the most important reason will be that it open's up user's accounts to be stolen. We will not allow member's to be put at risk through this. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If you happen to violate any of the rules posted above, the following punishments against you may be undertaken: •Edit or removal of post(s) •Edit or reset of reputation •Removal of privileges •The locking or deletion of topics •Temporary/Permanent ban at staff discretion •Edit of signature or avatar if in violation of rules •Increase of the Warning Level •Removal of offender's posting rights •Suspension of the offender's user account •Deactivation/Deletion of the offender's user account •Restriction of an IP/IP range •Other punishments felt necessary by the Administrators.
