    Forum rules 2.1
    1. Do not post spam.​
    2. Refrain from using CAPS.​
    3. Offensive names are not allowed.​
    4. Do not argue with Staff, their decisions are final.​
    5. We will not tolerate racism.​
    6. Exploiting the forum is a big no-no we also check for login attempts, if you're trying to access the Admin Panel you will most likely get warned or suspended.​
    7. Impersonating the staff is not cool, doing so will result in a ban.​
    8. To become an "uploader" on the forum you must have published at least 3 games.​
    9. Do not "flame", "bash", "troll" or harass others. Blatantly offensive comments or actions directed at others will not be tolerated. While we do allow members to debate and voice their own opinions, there will be a limit to how far a heated debate can go before it is closed by staff. If you harass someone you will be disciplined, Period.
    10. Please show respect for all members at Darksoftware; new or old. Disparaging remarks towards others about race, gender, origin, handicap, age, sexual orientation, personal politics, and religion will NOT be tolerated and will most likely be removed by staff. The poster will then be warned, suspended or banned.
    11. Flaming, even in self-defense, is strictly prohibited. If you have something to say, say it respectfully or not at all. If someone is harassing you either use the report function or contact a staff member directly. Replying to a flame post will likely result in the removal of your post as well. Flame baiting, or attempting to draw other members into personally attacking you or each other is also not allowed.
    12. Post requests in the request section.​
    13. Do not link to other forums that host PS4 or Switch games.​
    14. Backsit moderating is not allowed.​
    15. If you have a problem with a link or if a user is molesting you use the report button or PM the staff.​
    16. Do not ask when JB 5.50/6.00 will come out, we don't know, nobody knows.​
    17. (Not a rule - but: do not take everything qwertyoruiop or others say as "the holy grail" or a fact).​
    18. Discussion/Speculation on when JB 5.50/6.00 may come out (don't post dates, rumors, etc) is not allowed.​
    19. It is not possible to downgrade your PS4 so don't ask if it is possible.​
    20. If your profile picture has gore, disgusting imagery or has a character(s)/Person(s) with their genitalia exposed or similar it will be removed and you may get a warning or a suspension.​
    21. Do not post mirror links without the OP's consent (suggested by @Samet Chan) if the OP hasn't logged-in in a long time then you can post mirror links, notify a mod so they can put your link in the OP afterward ("uploaders" are exempt from this rule).​
    22. Do not post porn/gore/etc.​
    23. If you get banned on our Discord you'll also be banned in the forum.​
    24. Advertising is not allowed.​
    25. (Suggested by @Samet Chan and various DKS members) File-hosts that limit download speeds A LOT, seem sketchy, are mostly "premium" are now banned, a few examples: Share-Online, Rapidgator, Uploaded...​
    26. Use English language only!​
    27. Dupe accounts are not allowed.​
    28. The shoutbox is meant for general chit-chat.​
    29. Only 1 thread per game.​
    30. Xenophobic remarks will not be tolerated.​
    31. (Suggested by @Samet Chan) PS4 tools may be marked by your antivirus, it's most likely a false-positive so don't worry.​
    32. Refrain from using/doing sexual innuendos (jokes) or suicide jokes.​
    33. The usage of "shorteners" is allowed DO NOT abuse them tho.​
    34. Linking to GBATemp is not allowed (DON'T ASK WHY)​
    35. Do not ask staff to delete your account, we'll not do it​
    36. Only game uploaders and staff are allowed to post early game leaks (this to avoid brickware on the Nintendo Switch section)​
    1. No Advertising/External Links, other than to DKS forum posts, DKS sites, or My Anime List/AP profiles.​
    2. Signatures must be 500 pixels wide by 300 pixels high max for static and animated gif images and no more than 5 lines of text after that.​
    Note: Most rules were already in the old rules thread, the rest were added by me and @Samet Chan or were already been applied but were not written down, this new thread is mostly just to keep things organized as the old thread was kinda messy.
