Title: House Rules
Post by: twojeffs on March 30, 2008, 09:56:48 PM
We don't have many rules here. Registration is not - and never will be, required to download content from the site with the possible exception of some future private beta content that may only be available to members until officially released.

The minimum age for registration is 16 as stated in the registration agreement. The only reason for the age requirement is that we will not and don't expect the moderators to police the site for language or content. You may see a bad word. You may see sexual innuendo. These are both ok, within limits.

Accounts not accessed in over 90 days are subject to being purged from the database. This may or may not happen, but you have been warned.

Some rules on registration:
Spam:
Now for The Forum Rules:
That's about it.



Have fun, enjoy the mods, and welcome to Simbology!

###NOTE###: In the registration rules, I promised to disclose a number of webmail services that are acceptable for registration, because they're currently not often used for spam. If you find yourself unable to register because the system rejects all your addresses, register with one of these mail services, and use THAT address to register here. Once registration is complete, you can always change your email address to one that was not accepted during registration.

The acceptable webmail addresses are:
...@live.com (or live.co.uk, live.fr, live.nl, etc, according your country of residence)
...@icloud.com
...@msn.com
...@aim.com

Rewrote the registration section. Free email accounts such as Gmail, Hotmail and the likes will no longer be accepted during registration, because they are used by spammers way to often. Disposable email accounts are rejected for the same reason.

Sorry about that, but I see no other way to keep spammers out. After 20 months of screening over a dozen new registrations each day, I finally got tired of it.

Edited the House Rules to loosen the restrictions on email addresses for registration somewhat. :P
