General rules

Post by Konstantin » Thu Apr 20, 2017 12:23 pm

Dear DemonRoad Users,
herewith the board-administration wants to point out this forum's rules for you in order to prevent chaos and to ensure a peaceful atmosphere between members.
We ask you to pay attention to these rules and also to follow them. Otherwise the board's staff will have to take measures to prevent you from violating rules which means infractions and in the worst case bans.
We also want to give you some additional information for special cases which occur from time to time.

be nice / friendly
try to be helpful
if you got problems with some members DON'T flame
if a relatively new member did something wrong, please direct him to these rules and/or report the rule-violating post by clicking on this icon without insulting/flaming him
if you have a question you don't want to post on the forum, feel free to PM a moderator; he will do his best to help you

if you post files which include trojans / keyloggers etc you definitely will get banned instantly
if you flame / insult other members you will get an infraction
if you post a question thread in a release section (which is marked with [NO QUESTIONS]) you get a warning / infraction (if it was your first time you'll get a warning , if you continue doing this you'll get an infraction)
referrer links are forbidden; if you post one it will be considered spam and will end up in an infraction
advertising without a link back to DemonRoad is forbidden and will be punished with an infraction (warning if it's for the first time)
Advertising similar sites as DemonRoad is forbidden and will result in a ban (it doesn't matter if you've put a backlink on that site).
Advertising your own forum hosted at a free-forum provider is not allowed.
Posting a link to your Facebook page is only allowed if you have publicly liked DemonRoad. It does not make any difference whether you like DemonRoad by using the button provided on our website, or doing it directly via Facebook.
if you post racist comments, you will receive an infraction (a ban in extreme cases)
Baiting other members is forbidden, if you have a problem with another member please use our complaint forum to solve the conflict. Furthermore we consider all scammer accusations to be baiting, no matter what proofs you have. Complaint Area/e*gold Support is your place to go in such situations.
if you want to chat about non-game-related stuff, go to the Off-Topic and post there, but remember that even the off-topic is not a unlegislated area! Going off-topic in other areas will end up in infractions / warnings
posts which only contain terms like "#reported/#closerequest" etc., without being constructive are considered spam (punishment accordingly)
posting warez is forbidden, the violation of this rule usually leads to an infracton for the first time and a ban if you continue; requesting warez also is not allowed, if you do so you'll get an infraction
doubleposting, or pushing up really old topics is not allowed and ends up in an infraction / a warning
using survey download mirrors (e.g. sharecash) is prohibited unless there is another mirror option
posting pornopraphic content (no matter what your definition of pornographic content is) will be punished with an infraction and in harder cases a ban
We do not support gambling for money. Accordingly all gambling-threads which require payment for participation are prohibited. Gambling for free (actually it's just sharing) is still allowed. DemonRoad stands for free sharing
using any avatar/signature/usertitle which could make members think you are a member of the staff though you are not, is forbidden and is to be punished with an infraction or in harder cases a ban
abusing your avatar by adding fake or custom ranks/badges isn't allowed
abusing the thanks-system is prohibited; you are not allowed to sell or buy thanks from another member, only give thanks for useful posts!
if you have 3 active infraction-points you will receive a ban

The general board rules also apply to signatures!
The overall dimensions of a signature may not be too large. Simply use the following picture as a reference, if you signature is smaller than this, it is okay in terms of dimensions:
No referral links. Exceptions so far: MyBrute, Pokeplushies and the likes of them. When linking one of the latter, it must be obvious what the link is about (e.g. using an official game banner is okay, whereas using a text link that says "Click and get a free Ferrari!" is not).
A signature should not be looking displeasingly, i.e. you are not to use extremely large fonts or bright colors excessively as well as flashing animated images and such.
Restrictions regarding images in signatures:
You may use up to two images, but these combined max not exceed a height of 200px (e.g. two banners with the size of 200 x 100px).
You may use additional images when put in a spoiler.
The maximum file size of an image is 300kB.
Should your signature not comply with any of these rules, expect to be given a warning (or an infraction on consecutive violations) and your signature being deleted.

if you want to be part of the board's staff feel free to post your application here: Joining DemonRoad but please read through the sticky threads there first!
you can also help the staff by applying for the position of a "Forum-Guardian"; more information here: [Post only here!] Forum-Guardian Applications / Forum-Guard Bewerbungen
the administration won't ban you after you request it; if you want to leave the forum just deactivate any kind of e-mail-feature in your User CP and don't visit the forum anymore
if you have any kind of problems with the forum or the staff you can post it here: Complaint Area
multi-accounting (having more than 1 non-banned account here) is forbidden and results in a ban of all accounts
in case your statistics are being forged (thankspush etc) by yourself (referral to multiaccounting) you will get banned; if they are being forged by someone else without you having your hands on it please report it to an administrator;
in extreme cases (a member receives one ban after another and returns everytime just to spread chaos again) the administration can issue a restraining order which will prevent you from using this forum by law, which often is connected with financial costs
Alright, that's it. If you pay attention to these rules everything will be fine and a good atmosphere is garantueed.
The only thing that's left to say is: Have fun on DemonRoad !
