Together these form the LCPDFR.com Usage Agreement.
LCPDFR.com Community Guidelines
We all want to have a good time here across the entire G17 Media Network. Any member found to be intentionally preventing other members from enjoying themselves, be that by abusing, teasing, demeaning, 'flaming' or 'trolling' them, will be subject to serious consequences.
We expect members to follow and show regard for general etiquette. Forums and all types of discussions should be kept clean, tidy and readable. Posting messages or other forms of communication which are unstructured, messy or otherwise hard to read or understand should be avoided. The basic premise of all G17 Media communities and services is that members can interact freely with each other in a welcoming environment. For a more in-depth description of forum etiquette and some examples of bad practice, see http://www.toptenreviews.com/services/articles/25-forum-posting-etiquette-tips/
The G17 Media Network was set up as a place for enthusiastic supporters and members to interact with each other and with the projects and services offered or otherwise managed or maintained by G17 Media, irrespective of who they are or what they believe in. We strongly believe in creating a welcoming environment across all of our services and projects and will not tolerate any forms of discrimination including but not limited to those based around skin colour, ethnic background, sexual orientation or preferences, age and gender. Any members found to be in violation of this policy will face serious consequences, including network-wide banishment if necessary.
Spamming & Advertising
We expect all posts, messages and other forms of communications to be relevant to the particular G17 Media project or service that they originate from. Content which we deem to be irrelevant or otherwise undesirable to the discussion or project in question will be removed, with warnings or other disciplinary measures being issued following for repeat violations of this policy.
As part of our commitment to encouraging a welcoming and lively environment throughout all of our services, we forbid most forms of advertising. We do, however, exempt the following pages and circumstances from this policy:
- Member profile pages.
- Member post signatures.
- Links to related resources or files which are relevant, and provide a valuable addition, to the subject matter at hand.
- Any page or other communications channel where exemptions are given.
Plagiarism & Copyright
Most G17 Media services and projects depend on, and are shaped around, communities of like-minded people who share all forms of media. For legal reasons, we require that you do not upload any material that is copyrighted, or contains copyrights not owned by you. We ask that at all times the dedication, skill and work of everyone who shares content across our communities is respected and appreciated through proper acknowledgements and credits.
Profanity, Nudity, Gore & Pornography
Our projects and communities are for the most part shaped around adult video games featuring violence, sex, nudity and profanity. Although these games are intended for a mature and adult audience, we cater to a highly diverse group of people from all ages, races, religious backgrounds and genders. To keep things in balance and maintain a healthy and welcoming atmosphere, we ask that swearing and profanity is kept to a minimum and that strictly no full nudity, gore or pornography is shared on any area of the G17 Media Network, including private messages and comments.
We run and manage communities of tens of thousands of people. In order to maintain services like this effectively, it is essential that our members only operate and use one account on each of the services and communities we offer. Any attempts to manipulate any aspect of the G17 Media Network through the usage of multiple accounts is strictly prohibited, and will result in all 'multiple' accounts being permanently deleted, irrespective of any other penalties.
Additionally, we require that all information on member profiles and accounts is valid and accurate, such as valid e-mail addresses, ages, genders and locations. We will suspend and/or delete members that we find to be supplying incorrect information - you do not have to disclose your age, gender e-mail address or location, so there's no reason to lie about them.
Obstruction, Circumvention & Interference
We have these set of guidelines for a reason which is simply to make our site the best it possibly can be. We want to encourage people to share their content, discuss topics important to them and interact with the large community that our site thrives on. We don't however, want to allow people opportunities to use other people to their advantage, post offensive material or create a hostile or unproductive atmosphere in general. In order for us to do this, we rely on our members taking it upon themselves to follow these guidelines and obviously in cases where they don't, we have to do something about it. We simply won't tolerate it if our staff are obstructed from carrying out their duties or if any other malicious attempts are made to interfere with the operations of the community and network in general. Anyone found to be obstructing or interfering with the operation of the community or circumventing any sanctions, restrictions or limits will be subject to serious consequences, including the possibility of permanent banishment.
We maintain a list of sites (or "links") which are deemed to infringe copyrights or trademarks, encourage malicious activity, be a problem for our users, or violate United Kingdom or international law. As such, linking to, or sharing in any form, these sites or entities is forbidden and will result in an error message from our servers. Attempts to evade this policy are strictly prohibited - we only add to this list in extreme cases, and always for good reason.
User Submitted Content
In addition to our other policies on content hosted or shared on the G17 Media Network, we also forbid the following from being uploaded to or shared on our network:
- Files and tools which we deem to be malicious in nature, such as spyware, adware, viruses and other inappropriate content.
- Game modifications or other files which interfere with or otherwise adversely affect the game or the playing experience for yourself or others.
- Any other content which we deem poses a threat or risk to our services, members or communities.
When using the G17 Media Network, please ensure that you are courteous, professional and respectful - doing so will ensure that you are viewed favourably by our staff teams and other G17 Media members.
Note: In exceptional circumstances, rules and regulations asides from these may have to be applied. Members will receive no notification of them, but they shall be posted following their initial use to ensure consistency of network management.
