Attempts to evade banishment by creating a new account with either a new name, email or IP address will get that alternate account banned along with the other and can cause a longer ban.

Spam is an offense in this forum. Posts which are unrelated to or have no connection with the topic at hand will be given penalties. Other types of spam can be asking questions in boards/ topics it doesn't belong (trolling) or double posting.

Double Posting
We have an edit button feature to allow you to make any edits / corrections to your posts. Double posting, which is back-to-back posting is not tolerated. The only time you may double post is to bump a topic in which your post is the last post and was posted 24 hours ago. Do not bump your topic if 24 hours have not elapsed. You may also double post when posting important news if you choose to keep your comments and the news separate.
Note: We understand that sometimes computers are unreliable and expeirience lag. If you double posted by accident, please notify us here and a staff member may assist you soon.
