x64bit Board Rules


These basic rules apply to every part of the board unless stated other!

Important Information:

1. Please be aware that violations against any of these rules will be prosecuted by the Moderators and Global Moderators.

2. A warning system is in place and depending on the severity of your actions mods can freely warn you and punish you for breaking the rules.

3. x64bit reserves the right to modify those rules without notice and ban users without them reaching certain warning limit. x64bit also reserves the right to remove any post regarding specific material and sites.

4. Please search the board before making a new thread. There's a strong chance your question has already been asked and answered.

Important: In order to resolve any conflicts involving crew members (that includes Mods, Global Mods, Admins etc), we encourage everyone to report the abusive use of moderating privileges or similar problems directly to an admin or moderator. When doing so, please provide all information needed to take care of the case; if you feel that a particular person is not the right contact for your complaint, please get directly in touch with any Admin of your choice instead. Under no circumstances start threads asking why other threads were moderated. Forum moderation is not up for public debate, such threads will be deleted and the thread starter warned.
