We are proud in keeping our comment section and blog respectful and enjoyable for all members. Please read the following guidelines before writing a post or commenting.
Self-promotion is spam
All posts are read by our administration. If we catch questionable content, it will immediately be edited or removed for further investigation. Any post that is considered advertising for one's self-interests, including the promotion of brand or any site one is affiliated with, fits under this subject.
While you can promote your web site(s) in your signature, you are not permitted to post links to sites you run or are in any way affiliated with in your posts. In addition, users are not permitted to post any kind of affiliate program link with referrer IDs. Repeat violators who post promotional content will be permanently banned.
Language and trolling
Our community is family friendly. There are young users and language should be kept within a PG-13 level. Vulgar language is not allowed. This constitutes the use of any kind of offensive, discriminatory, or otherwise inappropriate material deemed unsafe for younger members. Inappropriate language will potentially be removed, and users will be warned.
Do not post provocative, outrageous, or pointless messages only to get a response from others, i.e. "trolling." Repeat violators will be permanently banned.
Lastly, if it is abundantly clear that a user has no intention of positively contributing to 3d visualization discussions, combined with an abrasive, combative attitude, they will be banned. Users must demonstrate an interest in contributing to 3d visualization discussions, as this is a 3d visualization related site after all. In other words, users who wish to do nothing but argue politics or other non-gaming issues are not welcome as they do nothing to contribute to the site and are not worth the trouble and headaches.
In order to maintain a positive atmosphere, no personal attacks or insults will be tolerated. While discussions may become heated, it is not an excuse to result to attacks or insults. There is a difference between a passionate, respectful discussion and one that delves into personal matters. Think of it as debating issues, not individuals. When the line is crossed, the discussion may be closed by the moderation team. Violators will be warned and potentially banned.
Moderators and administrators have the final word
If you have a problem or a complaint, direct it to the administrators and/or moderators, not to the boards. The appropriate actions will be taken. We reserve the right to ban flagrant offenders when deemed necessary, with or without warning.
If you have something to post and you're not sure which board it belongs in, do not post it in more than one board. If the administrators or moderators think it would fit better in another location, it will be moved there. Duplicate threads only serve to create confusion.
Multiple accounts per individual are not permitted
If you forget your password, use the password recovery tool, in which case you will be able to reset your password, given that you have access to the e-mail associated with your account. If you are still unable to login, contact the administrator.
Again, please follow the above guidelines when posting on our message boards. If you have any questions, please contact us. Above all, remember to have fun!
