|Welcome to NeoEmpire.com.
If you enjoy fighting games, then this is the place for you.
Be sure to read the forum rules before you post. Ignorance is not a defence.
FORUM RULES **READ**
|02-01-2010 until 01-01-2020|
Forum Rules: Ignore at your own risk!
For the people who don't like to read rules, please click here for the visual version.
1. DO NOT CALL ADMIN STAFF ON THEIR PERSONAL MOBILE PHONES TO COMPLAIN ABOUT FORUM ISSUES.
If you have a problem regarding the forum, send a private message to the relevant parties. The only exception to this is if the forum has been hacked or is unavailable for no apparent explanation as it may be something we are unaware of. This is a bannable offence.
2. READ A THREAD BEFORE YOU ACTUALLY POST IN IT
The length of a thread does not matter. If you "can't be bothered" or are "too lazy" to read the posts, or to use the search function and post something that has already been answered it will be deleted.
3. KEEP POSTS RELEVANT, ON TOPIC AND CREATE NEW TOPICS APPROPRIATELY
No explanation needed here. Off topic/irrelevant posts will be deleted. Please make sure you create new threads in the correct place provided on the forum.
4. STUPID THREADS/POLLS
Will be closed/deleted without warning.
5. ILLEGAL MATERIAL (Cardinal Rule)
Discussion on how to acquire copyrighted material (roms, bootleg movies, albums, games, torrents), mod chips for consoles, etc, can result in an immediate PERMANENT ban. That includes posts asking for PMs/links or any kind of information whatsoever.
6. RACISM and SEXUAL ORIENTATION DISCRIMINATION (Cardinal Rule)
We have zero tolerance for racism and sexual orientation discrimination here. Immediate permanent ban.
7. INSULTING OF OTHER MEMBERS
Continous insulting of other members will result in an infraction, leading to a temp-ban.
8. ANTI NEO-EMPIRE & HEART OF GAMING POSTS (Cardinal Rule)
Any posts undermining NeoEmpire/HoG Staff (this includes Moderators) or trashing events will not be tolerated. If you have a problem, PM the person concerned, do not make it public. Suggestions to help improve future events is welcome. There is a line between constructive criticism and destructive criticism. Be aware of it.
9. DOUBLE POSTS
Please try to avoid double posting. It doesn't take much effort to go back and simply edit your post with whatever it is you wish to add. Persistent offenders will have the double post removed.
10. NO TROLLING
Offenders risk banning. For those who are unsure what trolling covers please click the link below:
11. AVATAR SIZE
We allow an avater to be uploaded to our forum space, and must not be bigger than 160(width)x160(height) pixels. If off site linking, then we allow avatar to be 160x160 pixels.
12. LOCKED/DELETED POSTS/TOPICS
If you make a new post/topic that a moderator that a moderator has deemed inappropriate for whatever reason and has locked/deleted it, do not post it again. If it has been locked a reason should be given. If you have an issue with this, then PM the mod concerned and state your case. Persistent offenders will get the usual infraction and ban treatment.
13. PORNOGRAPHIC/OFFENSIVE PICTURES
Should go without saying really.
14. BANNED MEMBERS
Registered members are not allowed to post up messages from other banned members. If a member has been restricted from posting on the forum for a period of time, then that is their punishment. Anyone that publically posts up messages from a banned member (in any shape or form) may find themselves banned also. Also, publicly asking why other members have been banned or PM'ing staff about it will get you banned.
15. BEHAVIOUR TOWARDS STAFF
Staff are normal people like everyone else. So by all means talk with them the same way you would talk with other members. Do not however, argue with staff in the FORUM ANNOUNCEMENT AND RULES section, or in an official TOURNAMENT THREAD. Yes we understand that people have wants and needs when it comes to the website and events. But do not argue persistently about it if you do not get the answer you want. Do what you like in any other part of the forum as long as you stick to all of the other rules.
Do not make threads or PM mods/Admin complaining that you have received what you feel is unfair negative rep. Do not ask to have your rep reset/changed/turned off either. Asking to know who has left you negative rep is also frowned upon. Any threads on this topic will be closed and PMs will be ignored. Receiving continual abusive rep however can be reported (via PM) to one of the moderators.
Ignorance is not a defence. If you choose not read these rules it won't help your case in getting unbanned. Individual topics may have an additional set of rules.
This list may be updated from time to time, and it is YOUR responsibility to check when it is.
If you beat a nobody, you are a nobody.
If you beat an ex-somebody, you're still a nobody.
