Below you will find a list of TCOZ's main forum rules. In order to stay a happy and friendly environment, we suggest that all members read these rules before posting.

1. Spamming
Spamming, also known as flooding the forum will not be tolerated. Useless, annoying posts just to get your post count up is not accepted here, and we are prepared to punish offenders.

2. Advertising
No spam advertising. There are many forums out there that you can advertise on. This, is not one of them. Do not advertise in the forum, via your avatar, via your signature, or via PM (Private Messages). Private messages are completely private, but in an ideal case, the user will report the spam to a staff member, and the offender will be punished accordingly.

3. Abuse
Respect your fellow members. We understand that people may have disagreements and arguments from time to time. We acknowledge that, but when it gets to the stage that all is being posted is flat out abuse, punishments will take place.

4. Racism
People from a wide range of countries have access to this forum, any racist comments, will, get you a permanent pan. Be sure of this !

3. Double Posting
Do not double post. If you realise you need to fix up your post, or need to add something to your post, please use the 'Forum Rules - [Read before posting] Icon_post_edit_en' button. If you accidentally the same message twice, please delete one of your posts, or, if you don't have permission to do so, please edit in one of your posts that you have accidentally double posted, and a staff member will come along and delete one of the posts. The only way double posting is tolerated, is if the posts are separated by a 12 hour gap.

4. Use the search bar
Before creating a new topic, please search to make sure that the topic you have in mind doesn't already exist.

5. No pornography
This rule is very self explanatory. There is a time and a place for pornography, and believe it or not, its not on a public message forum.

6. No offensive material
Do not post anything up on the board that may be considered offensive to others. Before posting, ask yourself if it's worth it.


Your avatar is not an advertising banner, don't advertise in your avatar, it will only be removed. Please do not put anything in your avatar that you wouldn't post up on the board.

Much like your avatar, your signature is not an advertising banner, please do not advertise in your signature. Your signature may not contain images, or any more than 10 lines of text.

General user information and advise
1. When posting, make sure it is in the correct forum, and has appropriate detail, and content.
2. When replying, think of an appropriate response and don't respond
because you can, respond when you have something worth saying. Make
sure everything is readable and makes sense before clicking the reply
3. Read all sticky and announcement topics, they usually have important information in them.
4. If you find yourself in a unfavorable situation whereby you or another
has broken the rules, leave your posts alone and do not edit them,
report the topic through the report button in the post frame. This will
alert the moderating team.
5. Do not diffuse situations yourselves, report the problem, and let our staff handle them.
6. Treat people how you would like to be treated.
7. When posting, be polite, a polite post will get more results, especially when you are requesting something.
