    Default Forum Rules - Updated 16/01/2014

    Please read and adhere to the following rules to ensure this forum remains a friendly place.

    General Rules & Etiquette:
    This forum is provided by Zero One Airsoft. While we wont begrudge conversations about competitor's products, advertising other shops is not allowed. This includes links (direct or indirect) to shops and forums, hot-linking images, and discussion of other places that could be seen as being in direct competition with Zero One and Ground Zero.

    Discussion of any illegal activities is not allowed, and may result in your account being banned.

    Each member is allowed one login account. Registering with multiple accounts is not allowed. If discovered may result in banning and IP Blocking where appropriate.

    When asking for help, please try searching first or reading the stickies in the appropriate sections. Your question may have been covered before. If it hasn't please take care to post in the correct section of the forum. Threads that are deliberately posted in the wrong section will simply be removed.

    Please try to use acceptable English. Spell checkers are readily available for most browsers if you feel you need them. If English is not your first language, or if your language skills are not great, please at least try. We can live with imperfect grammar, as long as your sentences are understandable. Text speak and typing everything in caps is not acceptable.

    As youngsters may visit and use this forum, please ensure all content is suitable for viewing by minors and refrain from swearing at all times. We don't allow links to sites that are sexual/vulgar in nature.

    The moderators have the ability to remove posts as they see fit. We're aiming to keep this a nice friendly forum. We will not tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks, general troll-ness or purposeless inflammatory posts.

    Whilst these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Therefore we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way.

    Repeated violation of the forum rules will result in your account being banned.

    We do not allow people to post threads, send private messages or use any of the forum's facilities to advertise without prior permission from Rampage.

    Avatars must not be sexual or inflammatory in nature.
    Avatars that may be confused with official staff avatars are not allowed.

    All signatures should follow common sense and not be so large as to adversely affect the viewing of pages.
    Signatures must not contain any sexual or inflammatory graphics or text.

    The Classifieds:
    You are using these forums at your own risk; do not send any money, information or products unless you are sure of a successful transaction.
