Post subject:  UUDD forum rules - new and improved recipe!

With the recent announcement regarding the merger with TBM come a revamp of the rules. Why now? Well, because our little community got not only larger, but also more diverse. And we want it to remain that way. Most rules haven't changed a bit, but some have.

Please read these rules for the sake of the forums themselves.

1. No indecent or illegal content.
This means porn of all kinds, illegal downloads, warez, ROMs, gory stuff, etc. Basically, if its illegal or if its the kind of thing more suited to www.rotten.com, go post it there and not here.


2. No "derailing".
Try to keep all threads on track, and try not to derail them into a spamfest. We know this can happen easily, but if you end up talking about pizza in a thread about Guitar Hero, try and get it back on track quick as you can. Failure to do so will result in the thread being split - this is a very annoying procedure and can turn the nicest of admins into a violent hulk of spittle and rude words.


3. Sig size.
Maximum image size is 550x150
Maximum file size is = 200kb
Anything bigger and it gets deleted from your profile.

4. Respect your fellow members!
While everyone has the right to their own opinions, that doesn't mean you can abuse that right to annoy and offend others. Same, if someone says something you disagree with, try to bite your tongue and not take the bait. We know some people can be really annoying - don't be one of them!

....which leads me to the most important rule of all....

5. No "invading".

Note: This applies to both old and new members.

Until now, the forums have been a mostly PS3-oriented forum. With the addition of the members from TBM, we are now going to be getting a lot of Wii and Xbox360 owners too. While you will all no doubt have your favourites, we do not want fans of one platform going into another platform's forum and making unwelcome comments for the sake of it. That doesn't mean that healthy discussion and constructive criticism is not allowed. Far from it. There's nothing healthier than a well-informed debate. What we will NOT tolerate is simple trolling.

Posts that are deemed to be troll posts will simply be deleted without warning. Continue to offend, and warnings will be issued. Take no notice of them, and we will have to go and grab the Banhammer - that's something we don't want to do, considering its sat in an expensive crystal display case that would require breaking to get ahold of it.

This is not an attempt to prevent people from entering into discussions and debates. It is to ensure that fans of all genres can hang around in their preferred forums without fear of attack, insult and degredation from others.


UUDD prides itself on being a place where gamers from all walks of life can come and not only feel welcome, but also feel safe and among friends. Some of you will have only lived through the PS2 vs Xbox wars. There are a few veterans who survived the bloody SNES vs Genesis/Megadrive wars. Hell, I know some members even put their lives on the line during the frightening Speccy vs C64 wars. But there is one thing that unites us all.

We're all gamers.

Peace out, my Brothers. Game on!

From your friendly UUDD staff.

Sorry if I use the word "inferior" when referring to the inferior console I'm referring too.

Author:  Blokeymon [ Sat Apr 04, 2009 9:11 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: UUDD forum rules - new and improved recipe!

Its one thing to call an inferior console inferior during normal conversation. Its another to purposefully go into that console's dedicated forum and, in the middle of a thread about a certain feature of said console, you just start talking about its inferiority, completely taking the thread off course.

Plain and simple, if you don't like a certain console, then stay out of their forums. If you don't like Eastenders, you don't sit and watch it while banging on about how shit it is, you change the channel and watch something you like.

tl;dr - intelligent debate good, trolling bad.

I think that me and smkey should get our own custom title something on the lines of comedians or general pisstakers, so people who don't know can work out me and him are just having a laugh.
