The providers of this service (“we”) are not responsible for the content of any messages posted. Messages posted express the views of their author only. You agree to not use this service to post any material which is defamatory, abusive, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violates any laws. We reserve the rights to remove or modify any messages posted for any reason.

**Shoryuken.com Specific Rules. **
Non-compliance of any of these rules can result in an infraction or a ban.

1. No threads/avatars/profiles/reputation comments may be created to attack other members/mods/admins or groups of people. If you have a problem with someone don’t post about it first, take it up with them via PM or speak to a mod about it.

  1. No porn. No pictures or links to porn sites (real or animated). You will be banned for this without warning.

  2. No inappropriate avatars. Meaning, no nudity, sex, sexual situations, and no women in skimpy clothing. This is a game site people. So how about some game related avatars?? If you arent sure, then ask first. If not being able to have a naked/mostly naked woman in your avatar here at SRK bothers you, then perhaps you are coming to this site for the wrong reasons. There are also size limitations to avatars. The site will not allow you to upload something that does not fall within these size limitations: 200x200 and 50Kb. The system will automatically reject any avatar that does not fall within those size specifications.

  3. No excessive signature length and text are allowed. 4 lines is the maximum signature space allowed. 500 Characters is also the maximum allowed. If you are getting a error message, reduce the size of your signature. Any signature to be in violation of this, will have their account suspended.

  4. Threads on discussing sex, is a very adult issue, keep it tasteful and clean. Any violation of distasteful posts, may result in your account being banned.

  5. Only one account per person. If you are found to have more than one account then all of them may be banned.

  6. Racism is a delicate subject and may be discussed, but threads or posts that are made to be demeaning to any particular race are NOT allowed. This goes the same for issues on sexual orientation.

8. If you have been banned and you decide to create a new account and return, you MAY be immediately banned again without warning at the discretion of the moderators and/or administrators.

9. If you have been warned by a mod, responding by calling them names is the FASTEST way to get banned without your side of the story being heard. If you disagree with the mod then INTELLIGENT discussion via PM is the best way to present your case. PMs or threads like "F* you, d*head!" won’t get you far and will get you banned again, so try and work with the mods. We are all reasonable and chances are we’ll help find a way to a happy medium for all parties involved.

10. Do not re-post a thread that has been closed or deleted. The mod had their reasons for closing or deleting the thread so do NOT go and make another one. And do NOT make a thread cursing out the mod that closed your thread. If you want to know why a thread was closed then PM a mod and ASK. On a side-note, if you do decide to PM a mod and ask, then ask NICELY. Sending a PM like this: “Why’d you close my damn thread! You B**!! F*** YOU!” is the best way to be banned immediately.**

  1. Do not threaten other members. with physical violence or otherwise. This is not only against the rules, but extremely stupid in a legal sense.

  2. Do NOT discuss anything illegal. This includes roms, emulation(do not ask for help on obtaining roms or getting them to work), mod chips, pirated games, etc. Also talking about where or how to do it, is also prohibited. Those threads WILL be closed without notice, and/or the violator may be banned.

  3. Don’t spam your site’s url on SRK. The forums have been hit with a lot of spam under titles like “This scared the crap out of me” and then a link to outwar or some other site. Do not do this. It’s a waste of bandwidth and makes you look retarded. This also applies to referral links, take them elsewhere.

14. No Taunting or Flame baiting allowed. This means slight name calling to provoke flame posts after you post. An example of this would be posting on how “Zangief is way better than Sagat, and anyone who thinks otherwise, is a jackass.” That is not allowed.

15. Trolling is classified as sitting on the forums and posting nothing productive. This includes posting with the intention of being insulting towards someone when it’s entirely unprovoked. Some people also post with the intention of doing nothing but irritating the mods. That accomplishes nothing and wastes too much bandwidth. Trollers who can’t post anything productive will be banned at anytime an administrator feels you are abusing the system.

  1. No instant messenger/irc/xbl/psn chat logs are to be posted on the site. If people wish to participate in live chat, they can do so at their own discretion, but posting logs will get you a infraction, if not more.

  2. No cursing in thread titles, this will get you an infraction.

  3. Racial slurs arent welcome here, dont use them here or you will be infracted.

  4. Do not link to anything that is illegal. This includes copyrighted material in any form. This will result in a ban.

  5. To use the trading outlet you have to be with the site for at least 6 months, and have 50 posts. Failure to meet the requirement will result in a infraction or ban.

21. No thread derailing, just make another thread or search about a topic you want to talk about, no reason to derail others. Violation will result in a infraction.

  1. Remove image tags when replying, sometimes there are quite a few and it wastes bandwidth if you do that. Failure to follow will result in a infraction.

  2. No spoilers without using the spoiler tag. No one likes having their shows spoiled especially if an area hasnt had a opportunity to watch it yet. New shows can be talked about the next day and movies wait 3 days before spoiler tags don’t have to be used. Any violation will result in a infraction.

  3. No selling anywhere on Shoryuken.com unless you have been a member for 6 months, and have at least 50 posts (or approval from an administrator). Failure to comply will result in an immediate ban.

Notice how I’ve highlighted certain rules.

I have recently been receiving too many reports regarding members breaking these specific rules here in Pacific North. Especially this specific rule:

" # 21. No thread derailing, just make another thread or search about a topic you want to talk about, no reason to derail others. Violation will result in a infraction."

This is the first, last & only warning you will receive from now on.

AS STATED ABOVE: ***"*Non-compliance of any of these rules can result in an infraction or a ban."
