General Rules: (May be subject to some adjustments)
- While debating and discussions are fine, we will not tolerate rudeness of any kind, profanity, insulting posts, personal attacks, trolling, purposeless inflammatory posts or bullying. Our decision is final in these matters
- Advertising and promote goods or services without our permission is not allowed. This includes spamming, referral links, surveys, pyramid scheme and using the forum, comments and private message system to spam other members.
- Posts promoting private servers, illegal downloads or other material protected by intellectual property laws (or by rights of privacy of publicity) is not allowed.
- We also do not allow posts or links to sites that are sexual in nature or violate pivotalgamers.com community standards. The pivotalgamers.com team shall be the sole arbitrator of what does and what does not violate community standards.
Things that fall under these categories are the following:
- Bashing/flaming on a person’s (and not limited to)
- Sex/Sexual preference
- Bashing/flaming on a topic. Example: Say someone made a topic about LoL and a person went in there and started saying bad things about it like,
oh this game is for fa**ots
- Bashing/flaming on another person’s opinion on a topic. Although disagreeing on something is OK insulting that person because of their opinion is not OK. For example,
oh that person is wrong and he’s a dumbass
- Attacking someone without provocation. Example: Someone enters your thread and posts a reply that is constructive towards the thread topic, another person begins insulting or berating that individual without provocation simply because they do not like said individual.
In short, use common sense.
- Please keep in mind that our Community is intended to be international and open to all ages, therefore keep your speech simple and accessible to everyone. Remember that with such diversity everyone is free to have their personal opinions and believes. What you consider a simple joke may be offensive to another person, so keep this in mind.
