  • General Forum Rules

    Welcome to the CodeMasters-Project Forums

    Thank you for participating in the CMP Forums. However, as with all social circles, there are a few rules you must abide by in order to maintain your active membership within these message boards. We are trying to provide the highest quality Community experience for all of our members and following these guidelines is the best way to maintain a quality environment for all age groups. These rules are very basic and we hope that you read them fully. Often a particular forum will have a thread marked as "Forum Rules" any additional rules will be listed there; you will be expected to abide by those as well. Also note that we explain any warnings and additional rules you might receive. Thank you for helping us build a great online community.
    1. Language Used:Make note that this is an English speaking forum. we have nothing against other languages but this forum is meant for English posts/Topics, be it having grammatical errors, or spelling errors both are excepted. Note that this only effects Posted/Topics.. all other areas are fine for Multi Lingual.
      .
    2. No pornographic material. Any sexually oriented imagery or links to such content will not be tolerated. Offending posts will be deleted, and your account will likely be banned or otherwise sanctioned.
      .
    3. Avoid discussion of warez, illegal software, and illegal activity in general. We can be somewhat lax on backup topics for console software, but as a general rule we don't want discussions of pirating or cracking Windows, Photoshop, etc. Acceptable discussions would include PS2's HD Loader, game backups, modified cheat devices, trainers, Pandora, and virtually any console exploit you can think of.
      .
    4. Avoid excessive profanity and racial slurs. We will generally tolerate bad language in small doses. But peppering your posts with swears every other word, and generally fuming like a 70s-era Fred Phelps will be frowned upon. If you plan to use a racial slur, it had better be funny, or in some sort of academic context where it's appropriate.
      .
    5. Avoid personal attacks. This sort of behaviour is generally unacceptable. It is up to the moderators and administrators to decide when an argument has crossed the line.
      .
    6. No trolling. Trolling is any series of posts from a user who is set on causing conflict or provoking other users. Again this is monitored on a case by case basis. Within the Bag sub-forum, this sort of behaviour will be given more rein before it becomes a problem.
      .
    7. Restrain yourself to the topic of each forum. Most of our forums encompass a fairly narrow set of subject matters. You should post your threads in the appropriate forum, and avoid discussing matters that are off the topic of the forum you're posting in. We have set aside general discussion areas where random topics can be discussed.
      .
    8. No avatar, signature, or custom title abuse. These are a luxury and abuse will result in your losing the privilege of having them, and, in extreme cases, other discipline. You must follow the other forum rules when creating these. We will not allow links to pornography in your signature, and your avatar cannot be a picture of exposed naughty bits. The text of your signature should not be more than five lines. Avatar images can be a maximum of 100 pixels wide by 150 high. Images in signatures are limited to 500 pixels wide by 175 high.
      .
    9. No spamming. Spamming is characterized by the initiation of threads or posts that contribute nothing to a forum, be it off topic or on topic. Examples include: empty bodies, bodies with few words that have no relation to the current thread or discussion and those posts that state they are spam, either to annoy or increase a member's post count. This determination will be made by the forum moderators or administrators.
      .
    10. Avoid bumping topics. In general, we do not appreciate no-content posts whose sole purpose is to push a thread to the top of the list. There are occasional exceptions, but if your reason for doing this is something along the lines of, "damn, I really want these codes", you should probably not bump. If you delete a previous post so you can cut and paste it into a new one for the purposes of bumping, we will take away your {Delete Own Posts} privileges.
      .
    11. Avoid multi-posting. This is essentially replying to yourself. If you need to add something to your previous post, use the edit feature and place it there. Exceptions will be made when a long interval has elapsed between posts, or when valuable information is being added that merits "bumping" the topic.
      .
    12. Avoid quoting images. You should typically not quote images. Please edit the [img] tag so only a link will appear instead of the image in the quoted text (smilies exempt). Sometimes quoting images is unavoidable and/or necessary, but usually it just clutters the thread.
      .
    13. No private messaging abuse. Do not use private messages to threaten other members, spam them, or otherwise misuse the service. This forum is not for advertising in any form, including through private messages. If we determine that you have abused the feature, your rights to it will be revoked at a minimum, but it is more likely you will be banned.
      .
    14. Insubordination and special cases: Please note that the above rules cannot cover every topic that might present itself. If a forum official informs you to stop doing something we ask that you comply. This also covers ignoring additional rules outlined in an "attention" thread stuck to the top of the forum or in the announcements.
      .
    15. Long-time members guideline: If you are a long-standing member, act like one. Lead by example and assist other newer members rather then attacking them. We look upon our veteran members to use this opportunity to teach the newer members the appropriate message board usage.
      .
    16. Online Games: We want to keep this fair for all, Online game hacking is not everyone Cup of Tea. its not directly ban from posting as long as the game is not online only or Player Vs Player (PVP), What not to do is post "Codes work online" beside your hacked codes.. if they work online so be it, but they better work offline to. we dont want to see Direct online only codes. please refrain from posting this type of codes to the forum.
      Note If you Use codes online and your Ban this is your own doing and not the responsibility of the CMP you been Warned.
      .
    17. Active User: to become a Full member you need to post 1 post into the CMP welcome Wagon thread with "Copy Pasted 1 Rule title and also put Rules Read in your post. Not doing this will keep you from seeing the rest of the forum and posting to any place. on the CMP.. once u have made this activation it will take 30mins or so for your account to Switch over to Active User and you will see that you can see everything and post. There is to be No one saying i did not read the rules, to many violations in account activation will in turn start giving infractions for not following the rules.
    Enjoy yourself. The board is intended to talk about games and game-hacking. Community Lounge was created to talk about pretty much anything. Have a great time posting, and we look forward to your feedback.

    The staff reserves the right to change or alter these rules at any time without any notification. Please note that an administrator’s word is final.
