Community Manager: Benjamin Brigham @ Brigham@gamesnafu.com
In response to an unacceptable post or other action as defined here, the moderators may make edits or comments within posts containing unacceptable content. They may also remove unacceptable content and issue warnings or temporary service bans.
All such discipline will weigh the unacceptable content or other action against the prior disciplinary record of the individual in question. The individual's attitude and further actions with respect to the incident will also be a factor.
Borderline content will be evaluated more rigorously when posted by an individual with a significant prior disciplinary record. Posts made during a "riot" or other concerted group rules-violation activity may be moderated more rigorously. Generally, repeated unacceptable posting will result in warnings, then temporary service bans of escalating duration. Repeated temporary bans will result in a permanent ban from service usage.
Do not edit or otherwise defeat Moderator comments. Moderator edits and comments within posts are intended to implement these forum Rules.
Do not post discussions of the board itself or of moderator decisions. If you feel the need to discuss either of these, send your questions to the above e-mail addresses.

A "troll" is one who is deliberately antagonizing or posts with the main purpose of getting a negative reaction. Trolling behavior is not permitted and will not be tolerated.
"Flaming" is a personal attack on another member of the message boards. Lively discussion of ideas is important and encouraged. Personal Insults, harassment and other forms of flaming are not permitted and will not be tolerated.
Do not post Flame. Do not post links to pages which contain Flame or links to other links which contain Flame. Posts within a discussion-thread should be focused on to the thread topic, not against other individuals in the thread. Flame posts include hostile and negative posts directed at:

Please read the Terms of Service for further information on spamming.
Do not post content which is not available on U.S. primetime broadcast television. â€œContentâ€� means everything included in your post; your written words, any picture, your signature and all direct hyperlinks, whether typed or embedded in an image. Further, â€œall hyperlinksâ€� means any link you post may not go directly to any content listed below. We understand that linked pages may contain links to content in violation of these guidelines. We require users to review linked pages for obvious links to content which violates the posting guidelines and refrain from posting. Linking to a page which may contain a link to content which violates these guidelines will not constitute a violation, so long as the links themselves do not, in any way, violate these guidelines.
- Inappropriate language

- Excessive sexual innuendo
- Racial slurs
- Ethnic slurs
- Religious slurs
- National slurs
- Hate language
If you are unsure of what constitutes U.S. primetime broadcast television standards- for example, inappropriate nudity, play it safe and do not post it.
The forums utilize an automatic filter which replaces certain unacceptable words with asterisks. Note that this filter does not make the use of such words permissible - rather, its operation is a direct indication that the poster used unacceptable content.
The forums are multinational in coverage, and therefore must respect the laws of multiple nations. Per these legal constraints, all posted or linked content must not include certain historical symbols, names and concepts related to the government and other organizations within World War II-era Germany, including but not limited to swastikas.
Do not post content, including text, images, links and sig files, which have the effect of directing forum users to a website or other information source that has as a primary function the communication of information or the provision of a forum for commentary which is hostile and negative towards this site.
Do not post content that would defame, abuse, harass, stalk, threaten or otherwise violate the legal rights (such as rights of privacy and publicity) of others.
Do not repost private emails or PMs without the participants expressed permission.
Do not post directly, or post links to any site that contains either content of, or other links to, files, programs or software that could harm or lock up another person's computer. This includes, but is not limited to, "crash me" sites and automatic playing video/audio. Doing so can result in a ban.
Do not arrange for the exchange of pirated software, other copyrighted content or other illegal items or substances while using this site. This also includes links to any site that contains either content of, or other links to, pirated software or other illegal items or substances.

Do not harvest or otherwise collect information about others, including e-mail addresses and IP addresses.
Do not post to have a personal discussion with other individuals. This includes "JOEBLOW" and "EMAIL ME" type posts. Email or a PM works quite well.
Do not create "Test" posts. Visit one of the forums and contribute to a discussion to observe what you want to test.
(Signature images should not exceed a file size of 250KB and dimensions not in excess of 640 pixels wide and 380 pixels high. Multiple images in a signature, when taken as a whole, may not exceed the limit set for a single image above. The entire signature, text included, may not exceed 440 pixels in height.)
These rules are intended to provide further, more practical guidance for users than provided by the Terms of Service. These rules may be changed, without notice at any time. In any situation where the Terms of Service conflicts with these rules, the Terms of Service supersedes any of the above rules.
We have not set out to limit people's freedom of speech or discussion. These rules simply strive to keep the boards on topic, productive and inclusive for all members. Accidental violation of minor rules will not result in strict penalties. We want our users to enjoy our boards/services and feel that these rules will ensure that everyone can equally.
Using the Post Report Tool as a Method of Contacting the Moderators
o The post report tool is not intended to be used as a way for users to communicate with Moderators.
Finally, regarding ALPHA and BETA Testing: NOWHERE on our boards is the discussion of participating in an ALPHA or BETA acceptable. Nor is the discussion of ALPHA or BETA game play or any other aspects of a game that is in the development stage. That means No LEAKS, No SCREEN SHOTS, No Videos, Nothing should be posted about a Games development stage period. If you are in a ALPHA or BETA test then that game will have its own forums for the discussion of such things as game play and bugs. To do so will result in a Terms of Service violation and may result in disciplinary action to your account.

Webmaster: Tommy Claren
Born and still living in south Sweden and work as a web designer.
My first computer was a VIC 20 back in the early 80's.
The gaming interest was awaken when I upgraded to a Commodore 64. At the time C64 was considered having "stunning" graphics, and the entire family was indeed stunned as we saw it for the first time. We just stared at the screen for 20 minutes, scared that the wonderful appearance would go away if we touched the computer.
Since then many thousand hours have been spent playing games.
Favorites have been most every space combat games from David Brabens Frontier (Elite 2) to EvE online.
But I also enjoy RPG games. But most of all I like sail ship combat games!!
My first multiplayer game was Age of Sail II, followed with Pirates Bounty. Played those for 6 years. First Massive multiplayer was Eve Online, after 2 years in space I finally got my feet back on a wooden deck again in Pirates of the Burning sea. Being a member of "Sea Lords Virtual fleets" got me an early beta tester position. After abandoning ship I became a full time land lubber in Age of Conan and Warhammer online. Great fun, but nothing compares to firing a full broadside up your enemies a..ehr..nose.
