:the forum rules:
- Be respectful to one another, please exercise plain old human decency. Yup, this is the internet but it's still common courtesy. Sex, race and religion are touchy subjects so we advise you: handle with care!
- Blatant SPAM will get you banned on sight.
- Don't use this forum to plug your own forum. We work hard here, and you're not going to use us to piggyback and get new members.
- Listen to the admin and moderators.
- Use the SEARCH feature before posting. If a thread already exists for the topic you wish to post about, please use the existing thread. That way we will not oversaturate any of the forums with threads on the same topic.
- We do not speak ill of other sites and forums on SlayAlive. Otherwise, please do not post on these forums. We don't care if other sites do not like this one.
- Trolling this forum, as well as other forums is unacceptable behavior and is viewed as bad internet etiquette as well. Just don't.
