Comments, Posts & Doodles
Steam Unpowered is not responsible for the comments and posts published on the web site or discussion forums and reserves the right to editing, shortening or removing comments containing content prohibited by law, considered to be offensive.
You are allowed to use offensive language. But keep it to minimum so other people, who may not like that, can feel comfortable. We do not tolerate: racial, ethnic, and gender based insults or any other personal discriminations, and posts meant to offend or hurt any other member. If you need to say something bad to somebody do it over the PM system.
- Avatars Please use proper judgement when choosing an avatar. The site uses Gravatar for avatars and if you link your account with any social site (Facebook, Steam etc) it will be taken from there.
- Signatures Do not link to adult sites in signatures, do not use offensive content or big images.
- Links Pornography is not permitted, and adult content oriented links should be clearly marked as such if you must post them at all. Any form of under aged pornography will result in account removal, contacting the authorities and IP ban.
- Images Please keep your images in reasonable size and dimensions, as not everyone may be on a broadband Internet connection.
All questions have to be treated equally. Do not speak down to people. We all started as newbies at some point – always keep that fact in mind when responding to a question.
Try to be polite and friendly, we want more users coming to our site, not see them leaving it.
Following rules only applies to CD-Key Store Owners
To avoid flame wars between CD-Key stores, store owners are not allowed to post inside a thread that belong to an other CD-key store except their own. Posts in violation will be deleted and a PM send for notification.
A CD-Key store owner may ask an admin to open a forum for their store.
Feel free to advertise your deals and answer to customer inquires. Beware we won’t delete negative feedback!. However it’s OK to ask a moderator to close a thread should it be spammed or flamed by a customer beyond reason. Should a forum be inactive for a period of more than 3 months we may delete it for clean up purposes.
