PRE-REGISTRATION RULES AND AGREEMENT
The Modacity.net Community Forums (hereafter referred to as "the board") is an American fan owned and operated messageboard system created primarily for discussing the modding of games and game engines, such as the Halo series, the Source Engine, Crysis, and UT3, among others.
By participating on the board, you agree that you are capable of typing in English legibly, able to use proper English grammar, and able to discuss topics at hand with some show of intelligence, and you understand that posts that do not follow these guidelines, and/or the Acceptable Use Policy (shown in the forum announcements after registering), may be deleted without notice, resulting in punitive action including, but not limited to simple warnings, limits on ability to use the board, and bans, temporary or permanent.
By registering an account on the board, you realize that this account is your responsibility, and as such, represents yourself. Do not give friends, parents, siblings, etc access to your account; one person per account and one account per person. Anything posted by your account will assume to have been posted by you, and treated as such. If your account is hijacked and subsequently banned for posts/actions made by it, there are no appeals. Please practice proper account security by regularly changing your password, and DO NOT GIVE YOUR PASSWORD TO ANYBODY FOR ANY REASON. MODACITY STAFF WILL NEVER ASK YOU FOR YOUR PASSWORD FOR ANY REASON EVER.
Modacity does not accept requests for account deletion. Once a user account is created, it is permanent in the database. If you are concerned about privacy, do not post any private or identifying information. Accounts will be deleted at our own discretion, or in cases where it is critical to the well-being of an individual.
The board is essentially a dictatorship; your ability to post on or otherwise use the board is a privilege, not a right, and this privilege can be taken away from you for any given reason. What the staff says, goes. If you feel that you are being treated unfairly, contact another moderator or administrator regarding the issue. If other admins or moderators feel that the action was just, adjust your actions accordingly to avoid being punished.
The board is against software piracy and cheating in online play, LIVE or otherwise; members posting cracked/pirated software, or programs/plugins/applications/modifications made with the sole purpose of cheating or altering gameplay in favor of a single person or group of people will be swiftly penalized.
All messages express the views of the author, and neither the staff of the board, nor Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd. (developers of vBulletin) will be held responsible for the content of any message.
