User Profiles.

No inappropriate images.

- You are allowed to upload images to your personal album, but make sure they comply with the community rules. This means nothing inappropriate, whether in a private or public album.

Do not give out any personal information.

- Giving out information such as your full name, your address or telephone number can be very dangerous online.


If your signature breaches any of the following rules, it will be disabled and a notice will be appended in your signature space.

Signatures cannot exceed 350 pixels in height total.

- Signatures are exactly that: signatures. They're simply used for better identification of the poster and a form of expression on a forum. They do not need to take up anymore space than the content of your post. Signatures larger than 350 pixels in height are larger than they need to be. This includes blank space, text, images, and CSS.

Signatures cannot exceed 600 pixels in width.

- The total width of a signature cannot exceed 600 pixels in width. Images stretch the forum for smaller styles, and 600 pixels is the point where some of our smaller width styles and smaller screen resolutions start to break the HTML tables if something is too large in the post content. Text is permitted to exceed the 600px width limit.

Signatures must fit within the PG-13 age restriction.

- Themes containing in excess; violence, sex, aberrational behaviour, drug abuse, and nudity are not permitted within signatures.
Signatures should not be intentionally sexually provocative: This means that any scenes of a blatant sexual nature are not permitted within signatures. Anything surpassing a mild sexual reference will be considered as being intentionally sexually provocative.

Signatures should not contain violent scenes: Anything visibly harming oneself or another in a more than mildly graphic way would be considered a violent scene. The level of violence permitted is mild, anything malicious is not permitted. Themes of violence within signatures should not be very realistic, nor extreme.

Avoid rapidly changing images with high contrast.

- Consider the affect your images will have on a member with sensitive eyes, or with photosensitive epilepsy.

Do not abuse the CSS tags.

- Please do not use CSS in malicious or intrusive ways. This will be handled on a case-by-case basis by the staff, depending on severity of the offence.
