All of you need to understand that this site is open to you because you are our friends. There is no fee to join, no fee to hang out, and we love all of you. However, because we cover all costs, you are not allowed to bad-mouth us. At that point, you are no longer a friend, which means you are no longer allowed to hang out.

If anything ever happens, where a conversation got too heated and an argument couldn't be resolved, if you apologized, you could come back. This is not the Third Reich. Apologies are accepted. You don't have to, but until you did, you would not be allowed here.

There are rules to play on this website. I am reposting them now. There are as follows:

Welcome to the MorgantownGamers.com. You are expected to use good judgment and common sense when posting, and act like a civilized individual. Members here encompass all ages (13+), and the contents in a post should be suitable as such. These forums are for people who have an interest in games. If this is not your primary reason for joining, then you should leave now.

Your use of the forums, message boards, and any other public discussion medium (collectively, the "Forums") hosted by Elo and Audj indicates your acceptance of the MorgantownGamers.com legal notice, privacy policy, and those terms found on the registration page and in this Acceptable Use Policy.

Please remember that the open and real-time nature of these Forums makes it is impossible for us to vouch for the validity of any content posted. As such, we are not responsible for any messages posted nor the consequences of following any advice offered within Forum posts.

The views expressed in the posts you will find in these forums belong solely to their respective authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of MorgantownGamers.com its affiliates, and/or sponsors. If you find any posts in these Forums to be offensive or objectionable, please contact a mod via private message for the Forums in question. If we determine that removal of a post or posts is necessary, we will do so.

By using these Forums, you agree to the following:
+ You must have a valid email in your profile, this is the only means of contact we have. Having an invalid / non-working email address will result in the suspension of your account.

+ Each member is allowed one login account. Registering multiple accounts is not allowed. Sharing accounts is not allowed.

+ Before you post a question, use the forum search feature to determine whether your topic has already been covered.

+ While debating and discussion is fine, we will not tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks, bigotry, or purposeless inflammatory posts. Our decision is final in these matters.

+ You will not post any material that is knowingly false, misleading, or inaccurate.

+ You will not post any copyrighted material, nor link to any copyrighted material (with the exception of publicly available sites and pages that the legal owners of the copyrights have created to make that material freely available to the general public), unless that copyright is owned by you or by these Forums.

+ You will respect people's right to personal privacy and will not post any identifying information (including their names, contact information, and any other relevant information) within the forum.

+ The Forum staff shall be the sole arbitrator of what does and what does not violate MorgantownGamers.com community standards.

+ By posting, you hereby grant us a perpetual, non-exclusive license to the posted content for use online, in print, databases, CD, and any and all other media, whether now known or hereafter created.

+ Bumping, multiple, or repeated posting in the same or different forum sections is not allowed, and will get you banned real quick.

+ Posts should be in English only. Non-English posts will be removed. If a message is unreadable due to spelling and / or grammar, it may be removed. We don't ask you to be a spelling bee champion, or an English major, only that you post messages that are readable.

+ You will not impersonate any person or entity, forge headers or otherwise manipulate identifiers in order to disguise the origin of any posting, nor collect or store personal data about other users.

+ Advertising, spamming, flooding, and trolling is not allowed. This includes using the forum email and private message (PM) system to spam other members.

+ You will not use these forums to violate any laws nor to discuss illegal activities.

+ You will, if asked by a representative of the Forums, cease posting any content, and/or links to content, deemed offensive, objectionable, or in poor taste by the staff of the Forums.

+ At all times, you remain solely responsible for anything found within your posts and agree to indemnify and hold MorgantownGamers.com and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, co-branders or other partners, and employees, harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys' fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of any material you submit, post to or transmit through the Forums, your use of the Forums, your connection to the Forums, your violation of the AUP, legal notice, or privacy policy, or your violation of the rights of another.

+ We reserve the right to delete any message and/or restrict posting rights in our Forums for any reason whatsoever. Should you continue to post messages that violate the rules of the Forums, your account may be terminated, your access to the Forums may be banned, and your service provider(s) may be contacted about your behavior. Furthermore, we expressly reserve our rights under the law to take any other actions we deem necessary.

These are rules most of you already follow everytime you post. So thank you in advance for already following them =)

I judge you when you use poor grammar.
