- [3.1] Multiple Accounts : Each member is permitted one forum account. If you have reason to require more than one account please check with any member of Staff.
- [3.2] Threats/Personal attacks : Any posts containing threats or personal or racist attacks will be edited or deleted and the originating account risks banning.
- [3.3] Flame wars : If you cannot hold a reasoned debate without resorting to Flaming, you are not welcome here.
- [3.4] Forum Moderators : Abuse directed at Forum Admin or Moderators will not be tolerated and will result in instant account deletion for the offender. Staff members are carefully selected and have my full backing, they give their own free time to dedicate themselves to this site and abuse directed at them will not be tolerated.
- [3.5] E-mail Address : Sign up with a working e-mail address from your ISP. This is for security reasons. It is not used for any other purpose.
- [3.6] Rules : Repeated disregard for Forum Rules or Moderator warnings will result in accounts being banned.
- [3.7] Warez : Links to warez sites or discussion of warez is not permitted. Breach of this rule can lead to legal proceedings against this site, and will not be tolerated. Software cracks that remove the "CD/DVD check" are against the Ubi Soft licensing agreement and are included in this rule - which is strictly enforced. Posts containing CD-keys and links to sites of CD-keys will be deleted.
- [3.8] Vulgarity Swearing is not permitted, it only degrades the forum and dilutes the debate. Posts of a sexual nature or of inappropriate images are included in this rule.
- [3.9] Signature Images Please keep these images to a reasonable size, less than 600x120 pixels and preferably below 100Kb in size, and 4 lines in length for text sigs. This is for the benefit of users on a slow connection and to reduce scrolling. Other forums may only show your sig image once per thread, or not allow images at all. We do, but you must follow the guidelines above.
- [3.10] Spam Do not use our Forums to advertise your business or seek personal gain. People come here to read about Ghost Recon and related topics. The definition of "spam" is down to the forum moderator in the first instance. If you are unsure about making a post, ask via private message or e-mail.
- [3.11] Cheating Discussion of online cheating is not permitted. It's bad.
- [3.12] Disruption Disruptive or persistently argumentative behavior will not be tolerated .
- [3.13] Political Discussions Topics relating to politics are not allowed, they lead to unneccesary problems ie. flaming and chest beating. All posts relating to politics will be deleted.
- [3.14] Warn Levels Each account has a 5 level warning system associated with it. If this level reaches 100% the account will be immediately suspended. The duration of the suspension will be decided by the site staff. Depending on the severity a permanent ban may be issued.
