<ul>
<li>Do not defy the moderators expressed wishes!</li>
<li>Do not upload our torrents to other trackers! (See the <a href=faq.php#up3 class=altlink><b>FAQ</b></a> for details.)</li>
<li><a name="warning"></a>Disruptive behaviour in the forums or on the game server will result in a warning (<img src="pic/warned.gif"> ).<br>

<li>Access to the newest torrents is conditional on a good ratio! (See the <a href=faq.php#dl8 class=altlink><b>FAQ</b></a> for details.)</li>

<ul>
<li>No aggressive behaviour or flaming in the forums.</li>
<li>No trashing of other peoples topics (i.e. SPAM).</li>
<li>No language other than English in the forums.</li>
<li>No systematic foul language (and none at all on  titles).</li>
<li>No links to warez or crack sites in the forums.</li>
<li>No requesting or posting of serials, CD keys, passwords or cracks in the forums.</li>
<li>No requesting if there has been no '<a href="http://www.nforce.nl/">scene</a>' release in the last 7 days.</li>
<li>No bumping... (All bumped threads will be deleted.)</li>
<li>No images larger than 800x600, and preferably web-optimised.</li>
<li>No double posting. If you wish to post again, and yours is the last post
in the thread please use the EDIT function, instead of posting a double.</li>
<li>Please ensure all questions are posted in the correct section!<br>
(Game questions in the Games section, Apps questions in the Apps section, etc.)</li>
<li>Last, please read the <a href=faq.php class=altlink><b>FAQ</b></a> before asking any questions!</li>

<? begin_frame("Avatar Guidelines - <font color=#004E98>Please try to follow these guidelines</font>"); ?>
<ul>
<li>The allowed formats are .gif, .jpg and .png.
<li>Be considerate. Resize your images to a width of 150 px and a size of no more than 150 KB.
(Browsers will rescale them anyway: smaller images will be expanded and will not look good;
larger images will just waste bandwidth and CPU cycles.) For now this is just a guideline but
it will be automatically enforced in the near future.
<li>Do not use potentially offensive material involving porn, religious material, animal / human
cruelty or ideologically charged images. Mods have wide discretion on what is acceptable.
If in doubt PM one.

<? begin_frame("Uploading rules - <font color=#004E98>Torrents violating these rules may be deleted without notice</font>"); ?>
<ul>
<li>All uploads must include a proper NFO.</li>
<li>Only scene releases. If it's not on <a href=redir.php?url=http://www.nforce.nl class=altlink>NFOrce</a> or <a href=http://www.grokmusiq.com/ class=altlink>grokMusiQ</a> then forget it!</li>
<li>The stuff must not be older than seven (7) days.</li>
<li>All files must be in original format (usually 14.3 MB RARs).</li>
<li>Pre-release stuff should be labeled with an *ALPHA* or *BETA* tag.</li>
<li>Make sure not to include any serial numbers, CD keys or similar in the description (you do <b>not</b> need to edit the NFO!).</li>
<li>Make sure your torrents are well-seeded for at least 24 hours.</li>
<li>Do not include the release date in the torrent name.</li>
<li>Stay active! You risk being demoted if you have no active torrents.</li>
</ul>

<ul>
If you have something interesting that somehow violate these rules (e.g. not ISO format), ask a mod and we might make an exception.

<li>Don't defy another mod in public, instead send a PM or through IM.</li>
<li>Be tolerant! Give the user(s) a chance to reform.</li>
<li>Don't act prematurely, let the users make their mistakes and THEN correct them.</li>
<li>Try correcting any "off topics" rather then closing a thread.</li>
<li>Move topics rather than locking them.</li>
<li>Be tolerant when moderating the Chit-chat section (give them some slack).</li>
<li>If you lock a topic, give a brief explanation as to why you're locking it.</li>
<li>Before you disable a user account, send him/her a PM and if they reply, put them on a 2 week trial.</li>
<li>Don't disable a user account until he or she has been a member for at least 4 weeks.</li>
<li><b>Always</b> state a reason (in the user comment box) as to why the user is being banned / warned.</li>
