Rules of The Nest
Last updated March 9th 2019
1. ALWAYS SEARCH BEFORE POSTING! ALWAYS!
2. Remember that this is an English forum. Do not post in any other language but English!
3. Always post into the correct category / forum! If you are unsure, PM a staff member.
4. USE THE CODE button to code your links - DO NOT use the URL button, QUOTE button or the codebox!
5. If you find a dead link on the forum, please use the REPORT BUTTON to alert a staff member. DO NOT bump the topic by replying that the link is dead!
6. DO NOT post racist or politically loaded comments on our forum or start or be involved in any flame wars with other members! Rudeness will not be tolerated and rude posters will be banned without warning! Be respectful to other members.
7. NO SWEARING! Please DO NOT swear on our forum, it will result in an immediate warning increase and can end in a ban if it continues!
8. DO NOT use text or images with pornographic, religious, fascist, racist, xenophobic content! Ensure that your avatar and / or signature aren't offensive - if you have to think about whether they could be offensive it means they are, so choose another image or text!
9. ONLY use the default color text in your posts. If we change skins, or other members are using different skins, your post in different colors could be rendered useless as it blends into the different skin and cannot be read. Please DO NOT make text "invisible" on purpose by using colors that blend into the background!
10. DO NOT use this forum as advertising for your forum or website! We pay for our hosting, and we won't supplement your advertising costs!

12. DO NOT post serials on this forum. If a serial number is needed for your post, then add it to a text file and upload it!
13. DO NOT post links masked with any kind of redirect - your links must be direct from File host etc or you will be banned without warning - no exceptions! NO URL masking is permitted on this site, PERIOD!
14. DO NOT post links from n.a.k.i.d.oDOTcom (without the dots) - this download site is not believed to be safe.
15. DO NOT post more than ONE item per topic - if you have multiple games, albums etc., then each needs to have its own topic. This is allowed only when you are posting an AIO, a discography or a collection of games / movies / etc. that is included in the same archive (ie The Matrix Trilogy is allowed to be posted in the same topic if all the movies are included in the same archive - part1.rar, part2.rar etc.).
