Our forums are a place to talk with like-minded people, not a place to advertise your blog, webpage, YouTube channel or commercial enterprise. Your profile has a place for such things, and that is where it should stay. If you fail to do this, you will automatically get a 1 month suspension.
Similarly, posts including, advocating, or linking to illegal or adult material are a very quick way to end your time as part of The Escapist community, which should generally be kept to a PG-13 standard. An example of these are:
- Piracy - Do not link sites for piracy, nor advocate or admit to piracy.
- Ad Blockers - Do not link to, advocate, or admit to using ad blockers.
- Illegal Drugs in the United States - Do not admit to using illegal drugs, and do not link to nor advocate them outside of specific discussion threads.
- Illegal Acts in the United States
- Sexist, Racist or Perverted Remarks - Remarks such as these are often met with elevated penalties or bans.
For discussion purposes, users will often need to share anecdotal experience with some of these topics, such as piracy or illegal drugs. Threads where this is allowed should be very clear, but advocating these acts is still not allowed in those threads. Discussion of ad blockers, pedophilia, illegal acts, and pornography is never allowed.
