Rival Gaming Forum Rules and Guidelines

Now that you've decided to join us here at Rival Gaming, we do have a few rules and guidelines that we ask you to abide by while you are here. This is in an effort to maintain a pleasant and mature community environment for all involved.

First and foremost, please understand that we are requiring that anyone sigining up to join our community be at least 18 years of age. We are asking this to ensure we can cultivate a community of mature and passionate gamers who understand how to be a part of team, how to behave responsibly, and share a passion for gaming that will be shared by all fellow members. That said, here is a look at the rules and guidelines we are asking that you follow while you're here.
  • Usernames
    • Please ensure that all usernames are appropriate, do not contain swear words, and do not misrepresent you as being someone you are not (ie: please don't register as "PewDiePie" or "MrBeast" and proclaim to be them. Should a team-affiliated gamer or popular YouTube personality actually join our community, we would ask they message or email a Staff Member so that we can verify their identity and place them into a special "Verified" group). If it is not a name that you wish to be called personally, then it likely is not appropriate to use as a moniker here.
  • Multiple Accounts
    • Do not register more than one account here on Rival Gaming. This is to ensure that people are not registering multiple accounts for the purpose of boosting their post count by interacting with their alternate account, gaining badges or trophies that would otherwise take time and effort, or to circumvent a forum account ban. If your account is banned from Rival Gaming, then you are no longer welcome to post or interact with the Rival Gaming site for the duration of said ban. Discovery of multiple accounts could lead to both or all accounts being banned permanently.
  • Advertising / Spamming
    • Advertising -- Please do not join simply to advertise another website, service, product or series. There will be appropriate areas where such promotion is permissible, but joining simply to promote something that has nothing to do with Rival Gaming will result in the account simply being banned as a spammer. We do also ask that you do not place links to other sites in your signatures. This ensures that we also do not have people registering and posting just to show off a link in their signature. You are absolutely welcome to link to any thread, member, section of the site or individual post within Rival Gaming within your signature, but external links are discouraged.
    • Spamming -- Anyone who registers with the sole purpose of posting Stupid Pointless Annoying Messages (Spam) will be banned immediately. We have no problem with people being jovial, making a joke or two, or having a good time, but posting nonsensical idiocy or bots posting links spamming the forums will not be tolerated and the accounts doing so will be banned immediately and permanently.
  • Content of Posts
    • Under no circumstances is the posting of adult material welcome on these forums. That means no nudity, no pornography, no lewd images of any sort. The same is to be said of grotesque imagery, designed to offend. Anyone caught posting such images will be permanently banned from the community. This includes in signatures and avatars.
    • Please ensure that everything you post is on-topic and as high a quality as possible. We are not asking you to write an essay with each response, but please avoid one-word replies or low-quality responses. For instance, if welcoming someone to the forum, offer a genuine welcome, share an interest with them, do not simply say "welcome aboard," or "good to meet you," or something to that effect. Make an effort to greet them and make them feel welcomed. The same should be true of the rest of the forums. Don't simply respond "no" or "yeah, done that" if someone asks a question, put some thought into your responses.
    • Avoid excessive swearing. We all do it, sure enough, and we have no objection to swearing in general, but you're capable of a diverse vocabulary, use it! Posting excessive profanity will be treated as Spam.
  • Reporting Posts
    • If you happen to see a post that breaks the rules or is borderline breaking rules, feel free to click the "Report" link below that post and it will be reported to the Gaming Rival staff, who will deal with it appropriately. We certainly appreciate the extra hand!
