Unless you are unable read or are dead then we expect everyone to follow these rules (and before anyone says they cannot read just remember you have to register .. unless someone else registers for you, in which case get them to tell you these rules)

Da Rules

1. Conduct
Please do not make other members want to kill you.
No swearing or foul language please, and do not get involved in flaming matches because we can close topics faster than you can reply! (and we know how to use the 'ban' button!).

2. Downloads/Uploads
Do not under any circumstances, and I mean any circumstances, attempt to post anything other than freeware on our board. This means that 100k virus will not get on the board, nor will the crack file from RapidShare. We monitor all files uploaded to our board as well as links provided and WILL moderate your submission. Anyone attempting to upload such will face an instant ban. Any author links provided must be relevant to the download on offer and not simply an attempt to advertise your own site by uploading someone else's freeware. If you wish to exchange links with us please visit our Partner Page.

3. Download Comments
All registered members have the ability to post comments on any download they choose. As with any other part of our board, please make sure your comments are fair and constructive, and not simply "What a heap of crap" - if you have something to say about a download then by all means let it rip but please be fair and constructive.

4. Authors
Authors of freeware are encouraged to participate in the download section which is a great way to remain interactive with users. We offer an 'Author' status to those responsible for producing freeware which allows those in the group a little extra freedom on the board such as being able to access the board when it's offline, avoiding flood controls and so on. If you are an author please consider applying for 'Author' by using the Contact form or PM me.

5. Advertising
Due to the amount of spam posting recently we have changed the rules and now require that all members wishing to place an advertisement to any site in their signature MUST REQUEST PRE-APPROVAL from me beforehand by sending me a PM HERE. Placing links to external sites anywhere outwith the signature is forbidden also, unless again, you request pre-approval. There may be certain area's of the site these rules will not apply although those area's will specify this and you should pay particular attention to the descriptions and notices for any such area's where this will be noted quite clearly. Repeat offenders will be warned or banned. Under no circumstances will we accept promotion of commercial or shareware software and if your website is based around either of these please don't consider requesting approval as it will not be given.

6. Spam
Telling someone not to spam is easy, making them not spam is the hard part. Basically, if you want to spam then you better be quick because when we catch you it'll definately stop. Similarly, please report anyone you know is spamming immediately. Do not expect to keep an account or get another one if you are found spamming. Similarly, abandoning an email account will inevitabely result in freewarebb receiving 'non-delivery' warnings for your email address which will then result in your account being deleted or ammended.

7. Admins & Mods
If a mod says 'don't do that' then chances are you shouldn't be doing it, and if you continue to do it you're sure to attract the attention of an Admin. If this happens, place your head between your legs and kiss it goodbye (and your account). If you manage to dodge the Admins bullets ... brace yourself!.

8. Everything else
As and when new situations develop we may need to ammend these rules and or add new one's and we reserve the right to do so.
