1. Posting in the Wrong Section, (e.g. Posting of guides/strategies should be in the "Camper's Spot", instead of "General Discussions".)

2. Please do not use multiple punctuation/question marks in your thread topics/posts. It does annoy other users, one punctuation mark is sufficient to establish context. (e.g. ????? !!!!!)

3. Using a oversize signature that stretches the forum or makes threads unreadable is not allowed.

4. Please do not post similar or multiple threads in the same section to increase visibility. All this serves is to clutter the forums.

5. Starting a thread in the "Screenies" section requires a screenshot in the initial post.
