    • No obscene language or pictures.
    • No multiple accounts.
    • No linking to spam sites/virus sites.
    • No pirated software, cracked versions, or torrent links, etc.
    • No referral links.
    • No private servers.
    • No buying or selling game accounts (unless the game permits it).
    • No farewell/leaving or similar threads.

    • Do not leave negative comments or announce non-participation in Events, Tournaments, Contests or features run by the staff or another forum member.
    Levels of Punishment

    Levels of Punishment

    Content Copying

    Nobody should copy other sites or even reviews/posts here and claim them as their own. This is already a rule that is mention in our general forum and every Event thread, but it bares repeating. This is quite possibly one of the most miserable issues to take care of on the entire site. Not only does it cost a lot of time, the one who does it usually acts bad when caught. Most get a warning, but the best thing is to stop immediately and move on while continue to focus on participating in the community:).

    New Members Posting Links

    In order to combat spam better, we now require all members to have at least 5 regular posts before posting a link. Staffs, developers, and admins of games who want to discuss their games can still do so, but will not be able to post links until they have at least 5 posts.

    Besides fighting spam, this should also encourage game staffs to be a part of our community before posting a link. Posting a link and then leaving will not help your game as much as being part of the GameOgre community anyway.

    Forum Points Giveaways

    Giving away anything besides experience points will be cancelled. Here are a few instances where you can expect the giveaways to be canceled if they are noticed.
    • Giveaways using multiple accounts.
    • Giveaways using anything besides experience (forum) points.
    • Giving away points if deciding to quit for what ever reason.
    • Giveaways to new members for no reason.
    Giveaways should be trades, help, trivia etc. Even borrowing is possible if the two parties are fully responsible for it.

    New Members Signatures

    Signatures are limited to text by default, in order to add links and images to your signature you must become a Ogre Regular.

    At 200 Posts you are eligible to become a Ogre Regular. Simply post in the Become a Ogre Regular thread (in this very section!) and you'll be added as soon as possible.

    Giveaways and Events

    Do not post in contest or giveaway threads unless you are participating.
    • Please do not post more than once in any given Giveaway Thread
    • Only one code will be given per-person, please do not ask for a second one
    • Please do not use multiple accounts
    • Please do not ask for a code in Chat
    • Please do not PM anyone asking for a code
    • Do not announce that you will not be participating in an Event or withdrawing for any reason.
    • Please do not ask for codes via visitor messages
    • Basically please keep all code requests in their respective Giveaway Threads
    • Please be patient, we work as fast as we can
    • Codes will not be sent via email.
    Reviews

    Do not copy and past content from other sites, articles and reviews.

    Chat
    • Do not post personal info.
    • Do not spam.
    • Do not ask about codes or giveaways in chat. Send a PM instead.
    • No referral links. Chat is part of the forum.
    1. Must have at least 15 posts to chat.

    2. No blowups in chat. Anybody doing this in any language for whatever reason can be moderated and then clubbed.

    3. Not going to answer questions about somebody else being clubbed or put in the Pit in chat. If somebody happens to get clubbed in chat for not following the rules and you have a question about it, PM me.

    4. No shop questions or comments in chat. Again, please PM me instead. This goes especially for new or very inactive members because it has been abused and the shop is meant for active members only. If the case is too extreme, a clubbing can be called for. In other words, if you have not posted in years please do not go in chat and complain about not having any money for the shop lol.

    5. Have fun with the community. That is what chat is meant for:).

    Forum Games

    1) If you are unfamiliar with a game, read the rules. We are starting to have all sorts of different forum games around here and I'm sure most new members will not be up to speed on the rules for every single one of them. The first thread of each game will have (or at least should, if it doesn't tell me) the rules to that game in it. Simply read these rules and follow them and you'll be fine, plus you'll be able to enjoy the game more.

    2) Keep all posts family-friendly. Yeah some of these games allow for a bit of... creativity to say the least. However, we've got people ranging from all different age groups on these boards and no one wants to see a bunch of those "potty words" or "naughty pictures". I'll be honest with all you people, I really don't care if there's a curse or something slightly "suggestive" every now and then but don't be posting ****ography (hope that word isn't filtered) or using the F-Bomb in every other post. Just don't do it or I'll bring out the ban-hammer. Actually I don't have the power to ban people but I can still bring out the edit-hammer!

    3) Don't spam! I realize that a lot of posting can be done in this section, but that doesn't mean that you have to spam. It's not funny, it's not cool, and the only thing that it results in is a bunch of angry members. Plus it makes me mad. And you don't want that. Now some people are confused as to what spam is. I will give you my definition of spam and what I don't want done in here. Spamming (to me) is-

    *Double-posting. If there's a game that you really like it's okay to bump it in an attempt to revive it. But don't make a post and then a day or two later go back and make another post in there. A two-day old thread is not "outdated". Double posts will be edited with a note from me.

    *Posting things that don't have to do with the thread. This is simple and self-explanatory.

    Trade Forum
    • NO problematic, harassment, fighting, rude, spamming, flaming or insulting posts!
    • All thread made here are at your own risk!
    • The transactions in this forum are not sponsored, supported or guaranteed by GameOgre.com!
    • Take caution and sound judgment when entering into any transaction, watch out as you can be fooled, cheated and/or scammed!
    • The moderating/administrative team do not provide support or assistance in resolving disputes, about transactions!
    • GameOgre.com reserves the right to modify or delete any posting, profile, or signature for any reason, without prior notification or explanation.
    • Please help the moderating team by reporting posts that violating rules.

    No matter where you are on our Forums, if you see or think someone is breaking any of these rules please do not confront them. Please just report them to Ogreman or one of the Moderators. Thank you :)

    Yes, and you can add some as well. Apparently, we had rules spread over different areas of the forum instead of one central place.

    -isn't is a general "rule" that you don't post twice in a row?

    err for forum games anyway. Don't know if that applies in other forums but I don't like it in rs trivia unless it is the other person's thread. often I will just combine the posts =p. or if its mine and i have no control in that area. delete 1 post. copy what i had, and add it to my previous post.

    -what about no real life threats? =o i dunno if that could be really considered one though....

    "im going to kill you" or "you should die" can always be taken sarcastically.....(needs more consideration/thought into it)

    -No linking to spam sites/virus sites.

    Yes, we can have rules for different sections and list them all here. That should make it easier for people to point to the rules:).

    ah another forum game rule would be strictly for the number games (count up and down)

    -no using a program to generate the numbers to cheat. All numbers should be typed by you.

    You have to buy a card in the shop before you PM me:). I then check the transaction log before giving out the code.
