If a question has been answered and the thread continues to be spammed, the spam will be deleted and the answer to the question will not be. The thread will then be locked. If the topic is something fun and people are joining in for example, "Write your name with your elbow", it is fine.

Any attempts of DDoSing these forums, or "hacking" and deleting archives will lead you to an automatic permanent ban. Abusing an exploit though will lead you down the yellow brick road to the ban. However, if you do manage to find an exploit, please report it to staff immediately, so we can look at it, and decide whether it needs be patched.

Back Seat Moderating is a normal person trying to act alike a Moderator in the forums. This can be any behavior such as a person going to a thread and pointing another person to "Stop making double posts", or saying things like "Don't spam", please use the report post button on the bottom left side of their thread, along with a reason as to why they are breaking the rules. Private Messaging or contacting a Staff member via MSN are both efficient ways of reporting a post.

When you return, if you continue your actions, your account will be permanently banned.
