Galaxies Realm Rules
Last Updated: September 10, 2008

Galaxies Realm is a place for all members to enjoy and participate in discussion. All members should follow these basic rules to ensure a safe and friendly environment.

  1. No Flaming and No Trolling

  2. Please do not post, PM, email or link to content that contains the following:
    • Abusive, threatening, defamatory, racist, obscene content or any other types of discrimination.

    • Content that is illegal or infringes upon any rights.

    • Viruses or any other harmful computer software.

    • False information or libel.

    • Spam, chain letters, or pyramid schemes.

    • Warez, Roms, CD-Keys, Cracks, Passwords or Serial Numbers.

    • Pornography, nudity, or sexual material of any kind.

    • Content that is invasive of privacy or impersonation of any person/entity.
  3. No Spamming, try to make your post at least 3 words or longer (unless in the Quizzes & Games Forum).

  4. Please speak English, as not all of our members can speak other languages.

  5. No excessive profanity. We allow a few small ones like damn or hell. The 'big ones' are filtered; please don't bypass the word filters.

  6. Please do not register more than one account unless you can't get into your current account or have Administrator permission.

  7. Be polite and don't disrespect others. Respect opinions that are different from your own as not everyone thinks the same.

  8. PLEASE post in the right forum. If your thread is placed in the wrong forum, it will be moved.

  9. Please stay on topic. Off-topic chatter should go in a chat thread or PMs.

  10. No excessive "txt speaking". This board isn't an IM chat, take a minute and spell your words right.

  11. Before you start a new thread, look around to see if there's already a thread on the subject. It's better to contribute to an existing discussion than to start a brand new one.

  12. Do not post a reply just to "bump" your thread to the top of the list. It's considered spamming, if your thread is interesting to other users, they will respond which will keep it active.

  13. While you're welcome to post images here, we ask that you follow these guidelines:
    • When posting images, make sure they do not contain offensive or distasteful material (use your common sense). Also make sure images don't contain any quickly-flashing pictures.

    • When posting images in a thread, do not post really large images (larger than 800x800 pixels) directly. Instead link to large images with a warning.

    • Do not hotlink to any image not hosted by you. Do not hotlink to any image hosted by this board.
  14. Your signature should be no larger than 650x250 pixels and 100kb. Here is a size guide

  15. Pay attention to the extra rules for individual forums posted in the sticky threads.

  16. Don't send the staff to an early grave.
