    Can we still talk about ROMs via VM's, at least mention like "I play on a ROM" and I don't mean like link to a website to download or something.

    Is that only if you're serving a ban?

    Peter, no, it's a general rule. We enforce it when it's necessary. Insomniac, I'm pretty sure talking about roms via VM has always been against the rules. Of course, we will never ask the method by which you play a game.

    I already mentioned it here and I think somewhere else. So do I serve a ban now? Let me know via PM if you can.

    I still don't understand why the "no double posting" rule is in-place, usually it's not a users fault they've double posted, it's their browsers, or if they have dodgey internet. So they accidentally double post, and get infraction, which I think is plain unfair.
    Then again I think a lot of the rules are unfair/how they're applied.

    Oh you may want to add being abused to Mod's to the list. I was once, and I can't remember the ridiculous amount of infractions I got for it. :/ Wait it's already on there.

    Insomniac, no, these apply only from here onward. Past issues aren't a big deal-I'm saying that publically so everyone hears it. Takoto, users can delete posts if they see they posted twice. If there's an issue, you can always talk to a mod about it. Also, the 'mod abuse' issue you raised doesn't mean you can get away with anything, just that we want to avoid the appearance of bias.

    Of course, if you accidentally double-posted due to some error and you delete it right away, that won't do anything, right?

    The double posting rule doesn't apply for identical posts in a short period of time, say a minute or two. Again, mod discretion applies here. Besides, like evkl said, you can delete the second post when that happens.

    This might be a stupid question but can we advertise other forums in our own blogs?

    Anyways this system is better...by a little bit. I still hate it but it's better than the last one. Oh well if it works for the staff then I can't argue too much against it. I'll just live with it.

    Yes, you can advertise in blogs.

    And what's so bad about this system?

    All of this seams like pretty basic stuff to me. Nothing really to be worked up about. I could probably do fine without caring about these rules by using my common sense.

    Just one thing... why is ROM discussion not allowed in VMs/PMs? It doesn't really bring much harm does it?

    Thanks for the reply. I know on other forums you can't so I wasn't sure if it was the same here.

    It's not bad really, I just disagree with the points system. Something about that sort of thing doesn't sit well with me. Since it's basic stuff that doesn't need a lot of thought to follow I guess I can deal with this.
    This is more just me disagreeing with such a system but if it helps you keep this place running in good shape then I'll respect it.

    I think ROM's are illegal.

    This.

    As a practical matter we can't control what you say over PMs-they're private. But we hope you follow the rules everywhere.

    Actually, I believe the law on them is you can download them if you have the game in real life, as you've already paid for the game previously. However if in real life you don't own the game, then thats where it becomes illegal.

    The law on ROM's is very vague.
