b- Posts in any of the General forums may be revived if they lack any definite completion.
c- Even if incomplete, please don't revive topics over 2 weeks-1 month in Get Games to Work/Find Old Games excepting that you're following rule "a".

In addition I made a few minor changes with format issues in the document.

Since we seem to be having a problem with it:

Quote:
If you see a single emoticon post, please do not respond to it. That just makes the job of "cleaning up" twice as hard.

Made a change in Section 1 to clarify the official warez/abandonware policies ... these have been the unofficial policies for quite some time, but I figured they should be part of the official rules:

Section I.1.c changed wrote:
c- No posts may be made asking for free copies for full-version games that have not been released as freeware. You may ask for sites where you may buy aforementioned games. Also, if someone DOES ask for a full-version or abandonware game, do not provide a link to download it.


Section I.1.d inserted (new) wrote:
d- Do not post links to sites containing warez and/or abandonware information, downloads, or links to such material.
     The one exception to rule I.1.d is Home of the Underdogs ( www.the-underdogs.org ); linking to Home of the Underdogs is allowed.

Made a few small changes:

Added section I.1.m wrote:
m- Do not double (triple, etc) post. If you wish to add additional comments to a post you've made, please edit the post you've already made.

Edited I.1.e wrote:
e- Pointless posts, trolling, private advertisements or posts made for the purpose of artificially increasing your post count will not be tolerated.

I added Larry Laffer and Dosraider to the mod list, and re-added Wardrich since he's been active again.
