DCEmu's Carus Sceptrum quod Ordinatio



Universal Rules for the Forums and Blogs:

1: No illegal/improper content such as warez, links to warez, FTP sites with illegal content, etc. This includes Utopia (boot disk) and illegal hacked browsers. No talking about the process of creating backups or getting backup/warez running on your console (i.e. NO posts about running PSP ISOs/CSOs).

2: No Flaming for any reason.

3: No posting of anything considered spam (signing up just to promote asite, unless relevant to a specific topic). Also if you find a spam thread, report it, do not post in it.

4: No posting links to pyramid schemes (i.e. free ipod etc).

5: Any topics trying to sell anything will be deleted at our discretion (no ebay links to your own auctions).

6: Signature pics may not be bigger than 520 x 120 pixels, and 75kBs in size. This size limit applies to the entire sig, not to any individual image in it. A full sized sig (120 px) may not have more than 4 lines of text. For sigs without images, the text the sig contains should not be larger than the largest allowed sig with text. The staff reserves the right to take down any signature they deem unacceptable.

This is the general template:



7: Generally staff are the law and as such have the power to hand out infractions, bans, locks or any other type of punishments at their own discretion. With that said the staff are also the subjects of the rules themselves.

8: Do not post anything insulting regarding site management.

If any of these rules are broken, the staff reserves the right to ban you without warning. Punishments may vary from case to case.


Universal Guidelines:



1: Normal users may not have alternate accounts unless they are given specific permission from the Senior Staff or Admin team. If another account is discovered the user's alternate account will be banned and an infraction will be placed on their original account. The size of said infraction will be determined by the staff member. This guideline mostly applies to abusers and will not be enforced to the extent that Rules are. What is considered 'abuse' is entirely up to the staffs discretion.
