Board rules

These rules are disclosed to clarify the various responsibilities of all community members here on The Heroes Round Table. They shall be adhered to by everyone to ensure that our board runs smoothly and provides a fun and productive experience for all of our community members and visitors.

  1. Discussion rules

    1. Keep your table clean

      1. Discussion rules - Aka keep your table clean
        (Compulsory reading which applies sitewide!)

        No insults, profanities, vulgar words or foul language. The language used here is English - if you wish to use a different language, use the Foreign language thread in our Campfire forum.

        No warez/cracks or "I think that's an abandonware" discussions. No linking to warez or abandonware sources, except for confirmed cases where the copyright holder has released the game as free.

        This is a board for discussion of video games. No religious or political discussions are allowed, as they quickly turn to pure flame wars which often become a nightmare for all participants.

        No porn.

        Please keep from linking to too big pictures sa much as you can. Resize under 1MB and upload somewhere else, use services like, picasa webalbum, & many others).

        No spam!

        In case of panic, follow the herd mods. Ask a moderator/admin is you have any questions.

        Behave nicely, talk wisely. You will receive a warm welcome in the (voluntary) member info; come and introduce yourself thread.

        Welcome aboard, pilgrim! #
