It's time to make an updated version of The Rules for the forum, to keep everything in order and to be sure everybody here enjoys the experience with us without falling getting into trouble with the moderators or disrespecting the rules.
1. SHOUTBOX - All the users are allowed to write on the Shout Box. We try to encourage everyone to have a friendly attitude as we are a friendly forum community. However, everyone can use the Shout Box and make use of our resources that we have on the site. You don't need to be participating in the PDG League to talk in there, if you have anything to say, say it!
There are no spoilers allowed in the shout box for a full 24 hours after any PPV, Live event, or Weekly Show, this goes for all WWE Shows, and any other wrestling shows. - This is subject to the same penalties as breaking any other Shout Box rule, continued breaking of this rule will result in a (short term) Shout Box ban.
2. MODERATORS COUNTS - Respect the moderators (and the admins), they take time out of their lives to keep the forum up to date and clean, if you do not respect the rules and the moderators you will be issued with a warning straight away. If the second offense happens, based on how tough the violation was, you will have a 24 hour ban to think about your actions. As much as we love to use our powers we dont want to ban people for not respecting the staff, so be cool and nothing will happen.
3. LINK SPAMMING - Spamming links of any kind is not prohibited. Links that involve different forums, or rude, obscene, pornographic sites of any sorts will NOT be tolerated instead. Although, moderators and staff members, can spam the links to the topics that we have created as they are part of this forum and they're not violating any rule.
4. EMOTICONS - You can use them, but the excessive use (using too many of them, spamming multiple ones in a row) will result in a pre-warning, abusing emoticons will create disorder and will clutter up the shout box (or your post on a thread).
5. ENGLISH - In the Shout Box we would like the English language only. We get that you come from another country, we all do and that's the fun, but English should only be said around all the board and mostly on the Shout Box for us to understand. If you would like to use your native language please PM that user who you would like to talk to.
6. GENERAL BEHAVIOR - We are on the internet and we know that, but this doesn't has to mean that you can do what you want. This is a community and we'd like to be here everyday without having to worry about fights breaking out, issuing warnings and giving bans out. Too much swearing or trash talking may result plain in the end, and not everybody here may have the same kind of humor as you do, so please do not try and do this on a regular basis. Being cocky is okay, so is being reserved and serious, but being annoying or squaring up to somebody who told you to ''stop'' is what you should not been doing.
7. COMMUNITY GAMES - EVERY board member can join and have fun with our games, GFX related and nons, feel free to have a go in every kind of contest you see. You can post a signature, a poster, have a go in the Draft Game or even talking about a specific WWE/MMA event! Don't be shy or afraid to do something wrong, we never judge anything so if you're unsure about your GFX skills it's totally okay, you still can post and learn from the others and with the experience you get staying here. You may also get some feedback!
8. THE PDG LEAGUE - Probably the forums most best attraction yet. It features some of the best Graphical Artists of the internet and signing up to the league is completely FREE. Inside the League you represent your superstar, you have your gimmick and your own attitude. However, try not to bring your gimmick "outside" the PDG League, and bring it into the PDG Forum Community. To participate just sign up to the official topic and wait for a reply, you'll become a member after a GM confirms that you are now part of the roster.
9. POSTERIZED SECTION - Don't hesitate to post in the Posterized section! There you can share YOUR CUSTOM POSTERS about specific WWE's related events! Your poster must be on the subject of the real show, so no fantasy in this game. You must use the real life story line of wrestlers and add them into your piece, make it like your own WWE Promotional event poster!
10. SPORT SECTION - It's a section open to everybody and it's open to EVERY SPORT RELATED TALK!!! You've just seen a PPV of any Sport? Make a thread about it, air your views and what you thought you liked and didn't!
These are the rules that everybody has to respect: who disrespects several times the rules will be excluded from the Shout box with a minimal ''ban'', if the offender keeps having a bad attitude and ignores the rules, Warnings will be given out. Getting a 100% Warning Level will lead to a full ban from the board.
