|Uploading rules - Torrents violating these rules may be deleted without notice|
|[list][*]All uploads must include a proper NFO.
[*]Only scene releases. If it's not on [url=http://www.nforce.nl][b]NFOrce[/b][/url] or [url=http://www.grokmusiq.com][b]grokMusiQ[/b][/url] then forget it!
[*]The stuff must not be older than seven (7) days.
[*]All files must be in original format (usually 14.3 MB RARs).
[*]Pre-release stuff should be labeled with an *ALPHA* or *BETA* tag.
[*]Make sure not to include any serial numbers, CD keys or similar in the description (you do [b]not[/b] need to edit the NFO!).
[*]Make sure your torrents are well-seeded for at least 24 hours.
[*]Do not include the release date in the torrent name.
[*]Stay active! You risk being demoted if you have no active torrents.
If you have something interesting that somehow violate these rules (e.g. not ISO format), ask a mod and we might make an exception.[/list]
|Moderating Rules - Use your better judgement!|
[list][*]The most important rule: Use your better judgment! [*]Don't be afraid to say [b]NO[/b]! (a.k.a. "Helshad's rule".) [*]Don't defy another mod in public, instead send a PM or through IM. [*]Be tolerant! Give the user(s) a chance to reform. [*]Don't act prematurely, let the users make their mistakes and THEN correct them. [*]Try correcting any "off topics" rather then closing a thread. [*]Move topics rather than locking them. [*]Be tolerant when moderating the Chit-chat section (give them some slack). [*]If you lock a topic, give a brief explanation as to why you're locking it. [*]Before you disable a user account, send him/her a PM and if they reply, put them on a 2 week trial. [*]Don't disable a user account until he or she has been a member for at least 4 weeks. [*][b]Always[/b] state a reason (in the user comment box) as to why the user is being banned / warned.[/list]
