Now it's back up and running again (5. january, 2013).The rules have had points added to each topic to indicate what rule breakers will receive and shortly after the points table will be made public in a locked thread so members know where they stand in regards of being close to temp or perm bans so it is advised you read these rules as not knowing them when you break them is not a valid excuse (Yes we are used to hearing this one lol)Points Table:viewtopic.php?f=2&t=152428Rules Regarding the Following Issues:1.Double Accounts:

7.2 Cases will be reviewed8.Additional Rules
: (1 Point)
8.1 Bumping threads:
This is up to the discretion of the staff (the date since the last post in the thread will be taken into account) and if any action is taken it will result in a pm warning. It will be decided based on circumstance, since there are understandable reasons for doing this.
8.2 Bumping old topics:
This is against the rules and will result in a warning, followed by a week ban if continued. Any topic that has not been posted in for 4 months cannot be resurrected. If you wish to discuss the topic in said thread, start a new one.
While this is often disputable and up for interpretation, if you become noted as “trolling” more than once warnings may be issued, beginning with a pm warning. Trolling consists of making threads/posts or replying to topics/posts with the intention to purposely disrupt and/or upset other members. This often results in threads going off topic, which is why this can be a problem.
8.4 Off-Topic Posts:
These occur often, usually not intentionally, or done so another thread is not made, etc. We have all done it, and it only becomes a problem if the topic is then completely taken off track, or if a conversation begins and continues throughout the thread. Since it’s understandable, this issue will be dealt with when faced, and may simply result in deleting posts to clean up the topic, but if a warning was given in the thread to stop and it continues a pm warning may be given.
8.5 Pornographic / 18+ content
- The majority of users are teenagers, many under 18 and for this reason no content, not suitable for the age group can be posted. This rule only really applies to tasteless pornography but do consider the age range before posting questionable content. Can lead to permanent ban.
- It is not allowed to post more than one post in a row within a short amount of time. The Staff might delete your post, or "warn" you about it. If it keeps happening, an official warning will be given.
8.7 Respect Fans
- The board has been made for the dicussions of Eminem fans, if you would claim to be otherwise, any post made to anger fans and written without thought, only to preach hate will be deleted and you will recieve a 1 point warning.
8.8 Auto-Playing Videos
- It is not allowed to embed auto-playing videos within your posts. All posts with auto-playing videos will be edited to remove the video, and one (1) warning point may be issued to you by a moderator or administrator.8.9 Fake Links and Misleading Titles
- It is not allowed to post fake links to news or leaks/downloads on the forum. It is also not allowed to use misleading titles in posts about news or leaks/downloads. Infractions of rule 8.9 will result in a locked thread, and possibly one (1) warning point and/or a one week ban by moderator discretion.
If you have any questions, please post them, and myself or any other members of the staff will answer them asap. Thank you all for your time, and we hope you find these rules fair and acceptable
