|This is an established community. Although this site is new, our members have been together for some time and have a very specific expectation of behavior by other members and new members.
The Rules of Conduct for this community are as follow:
No foul or abusive language or content. Profanity will not be tolerated by the admins/moderators. Foul language is a sign of an undeveloped mind. If you feel the need to express yourself in this manner, go elsewhere. Accounts with names meant to be annoying, profane, overtly sexual or hateful will be removed. Admins reserve the right to ban IPs for repeated objectionable behavior. This is a game forum, not a political forum.
Hate/Racial Content. We cannot stress in stronger possible terms that racist or other hate content will simply not be tolerated. There is no excuse or context for racist/hate language or content of any kind. This includes contexts of race, religion, national origin, gender, etc. Violators of this rule are subject to immediate account deletion and their IP address will be blocked.
No whining. This is a public forum and there are bound to be occasional disagreements and knuckleheads. While we do our best to limit annoying behavior and posting, whining makes matters worse. If you see something conflicting with our rules, inform an admin or moderator and move on. Do not nag...
Admins have final say. Admins have final say. These rules are not negotiable and they are not up for discussion from within the game or forum. Enforcement of these rules is as applicable by content or by admin judgment. Running this community takes a lot of effort and resources, all of which are DONATED to our community. Respect that.
No disrespect. This is a friendly and mature community, but sometimes things can get heated. Flaming, offensive name-calling and showing disrespect for site admins and moderators will not be tolerated. Do not insult other members, admins, moderators or adversity.gameover.com. This behavior is not acceptable and will result in a ban.
Discussion of illegal or unethical activities. Discussion of undertaking illegal activities is strictly forbidden. Do not discuss the commission of any activity prohibited by local, state or federal laws, including but not limited to obtaining or providing instructions on how to obtain illegal items such pirated copies of copyrighted materials, software keys, software hacks or the like. Further, do not discuss or provide instructions on any level regarding game hacks or other modifications where the intent is circumventing rules of affiliated gaming servers or using gaming software other than how it was intended by the publisher/copyright holder's intentions.
No Advertising/Conflict of Interest. Do not post messages on the affiliate servers or this website or forums advertising websites, FTP sites, clan recruitment or anything else with which you are affiliated or have a personal interest without prior admin approval. If you are trying to promote your server, website or clan, posting a a link in your signature is acceptable. But do not use this forum as a place to advertise and promote your own interests. If you have a resource you want to make available to our members and it is deemed in keeping with the philosophy of the community and is not simply self-promotion, send a private message to one of the staff admins to get interim approval. Final approval may be subject to staff review.
Sexual Content. Most of us are mature adults, but we have kids here also. Keep the sexual content light and on a PG13 equivalent level. Embedded content or links to pornography or nudity will be promptly removed and the member warned. Repeat violations could result in the cancellation of your account or ban of your IP address.
Politics and Religion. While these subjects are not taboo, they are usually emotionally charged. Frank, honest and mature discussion is always welcome, but keep it respectful and relevant. We encourage our members to be religiously and politically tolerant, particularly of mainstream connotation.
Discussion of game server punishment. This website/forum is not the platform to publicly question the punishment any player has received for game-related infractions. Likewise, it is not the forum to protest it. If you or an acquaintance was disciplined on the gaming server for whatever reason and wish to take issue with it, send a private message or email to the appropriate game server admin. Posts will be promptly deleted and the creator warned and directed to take the proper course of action.
Copyrighted content. Please refrain from posting copyrighted content. It is okay to post links to the material, but copying and posting that material in its entirety directly into these forums is a violation of copyrights and could potentially adversely impact the future viability of this site and community. Most of the time, these posts are innocent enough. Just make certain you exercise due diligence when copying information from other sites to post here in its entirety. The staff will remove such material and post a link in its place if available.
All members are expected to have read and follow the rules. Unless otherwise stated, violations of these rules will result in a warning. Second offenses of the same rule will result in the user's account being disabled temporarily, permanently or deleted altogether. These rules are subject to change or amendment without advance notice.
