If it hasn't been made clear already, the rules on SB 2.0 will be barebones. They are as follows (subject to change):

The providers ("we", "us", "our") of the service provided by this web site ("Service") are not responsible for any user-generated content and accounts ("Content"). Content submitted express the views of their author only.

You agree to not use the Service to submit or link to any Content which is defamatory, overly-abusive, hateful, threatening, spam or spam-like, contains adult or objectionable content, contains personal information of others, risks copyright infringement, encourages unlawful activity, or otherwise violates any laws.
  • No spam. If you post the same message multiple times it will be deleted and you will be given a warning. If you are in chat and you post multiple images consecutively or before the last clears the screen, you will be warned. This also includes solicitation, spamming caps, etc. Repeated violation of this rule may lead to a ban.
  • Posts dedicated to recruiting our members to other websites will be deleted without a warning, and the user may receive a permanent ban
  • You will receive three warnings before getting a ban. First time bans: 1 day. Second time bans: 1 week. Third time bans: Permanent. Habitual offenders will be issued permanent bans. A warning is valid for one year.
  • Absolutely no porn/graphic content outside of forums marked NSFW. We can get in legal trouble for this, so if you post this material you may be banned without warning.
  • You agree to not have an avatar that is sexually suggestive and/or intended to cause sexual arousal. Examples of content that may be considered sexually gratifying include, but are not limited to:
    • close-ups of breasts, buttocks, or crotches
    • sheer or see-through clothing or lingerie
    • strategically covered nudity (includes situations in which genitals are blurred out by camera)
    • images of men or women posing and/or undressing in a seductive manner
    If you do not use an avatar that is following our rules, it may be changed at any time by an Administrator of the site.
  • Do not harass others. Please try and show some level of respect to other users. While no one will get in trouble for making an offensive joke here and there, if a user feels they are being harassed and wants you to stop harassing them, please stop. If you consistently try to offend others by using slurs you think will offend them, and unnecessarily flame other users after being asked to stop, you will be warned. And if this type of aggressive/toxic behavior continues, you may receive a ban.
  • Post in the relevant forum. Don't post about things unrelated to the topic of the forum. For example, don't make a thread about Skyrim in the Ubisoft section. We realize that a violation of this rule may just be an honest mistake, so users will just be given a friendly reminder. However if for some reason you repeatedly violate this rule, you may be subject to discipline.
  • English only. Users may post in no language besides English. Posts not in English will be deleted and the user will be warned. Repeated violation of this rule may lead to a ban.
  • You must be 13 years of age or older to make an account on SB. Users found to be underage will be banned until they are of age. Again, we could get into legal trouble if we don't do this.
  • No alternate accounts. If a user creates a 2nd account with the same IP address, the 2nd account will be banned, and the 1st account will receive a warning. No exceptions.
  • An Administrator of the site reserves the right to follow-up on any illegal activities being planned, having taken place, or those in-process, by any of our members, or their contacts by proxy of discussion, whether initiated here or via outside communications. Especially those activities which are intended to harm the site or its users. Any user thought to be planning or partaking in such actions may be banned without warning.
  • No linking to copyrighted material! (AKA: Warez, Torrents, Cracked Applications) This is illegal and any DMCA's will be complied with. Posts made by users (or staff) are not under endorsement by SugarBombed
  • We reserve the rights to remove or modify any Content submitted for any reason without explanation. Requests for Content to be removed or modified will be undertaken only at our discretion. We reserve the right to take action against any account with the Service at any time.

    You are granting us with a non-exclusive, permanent, irrevocable, unlimited license to use, publish, or re-publish your Content in connection with the Service. You retain copyright over the Content.

    These terms may be changed at any time without notice.

    If you do not agree with these terms, please do not register or use this Service. If you wish to close your account, please contact us.

    Should you need clarification on the rules, feel free to contact @allout or @Potato
  • The above forum rules where applicable also apply to private messaging. Abuse of the private messaging system may lead to warnings and/or ban if reported.

Posting Etiquette and Tips:

These are just some tips on how to format posts/threads for optimal discussion. These are not official rules and will not lead to any repercussions if not followed:
  • If you have a problem with another user or the site itself, bring it to the attention of a staff member. Users are encouraged to use the "report" feature as well as the suggestions thread, and not to try and act like a mod if they are not one. The mod team is here to help, and will do their best to resolve any and all problems amicably.
  • Do not use multiple colors and tons of emoticons/smileys/punctuation in your posts. This is just hard on the eyes and will likely make ppl not want to engage in discussion. Also try to limit your USE OF CAPS TO A MINIMUM.
  • Members should try to come up with a descriptive, yet succinct title when posting a new thread. Try to make a thread about something you haven't seen discussed before, and that you think will generate buzz. Examples of bad thread titles include: "X game sucks" "Witcher 3 is the greatest" "Help me!", "I'm stuck!", etc. Examples of good subjects include; "Why New Vegas is a better RPG than FO4" "TW3 is the gold standard for RPG's" "Prey is thought provoking" "getting a certain error when logging in", etc.
  • Respond to more threads than you create.
  • Upload a high quality avatar, create a custom signature, and curate your own profile page.
  • Do not disrespect staff members, they work hard to keep the forum clean from spam and trolls.
  • have fun! Remember that everyone is here to discuss their favorite interests, this isn't that serious lol
