- The spelling and grammar of your posts is not required to be perfect; however, we do ask that you post to the best of your grammatical abilities. In addition, while we’re not very strict when it comes to post quality, we ask you to please post at least one (1) sentence per post, and reframe from posting things such as “Bump”, unless you are playing a Forum Game.
- Unsuitable Content – Any website that includes inappropriate content may not be discussed, linked to, or advertised on Forum Promotion. Unsuitable content includes the following:
- Pirated or nulled software
- Hacking (black hat and white hat)
- Torrents and black hat SEO
- Non-English content
- Misleading links, shock images, and shock videos
- Content that targets hate on the basis of race, religion, or belief group
- Anything else determined to be unsuitable
- Only Advertise Where Allowed – Posting links to your site or affiliate links in off-topic areas is not allowed. Private messages and profile comments may not be used to advertise your website, forum, or thread. If you receive a PM that violates these rules, please report it. Private messages cannot be used until a user makes five (5) posts. Affiliate links may only be posted in the proper section of our Promotion Directory.

In extreme cases, all of your accounts may be banned from Forum Promotion. Ban evasion is not tolerated. Switching accounts may be allowed in special circumstances with the permission of an administrator. If you are using the same computer or IP Address as another member, please contact us prior to signing up to prevent any potential issues from arising.
- Backseat Moderation – If you see a post that breaks the rules, please simply report it, rather than replying to the post. We appreciate that you want to help, and you can help us by reporting posts that break the rules; when users try to solve problems themselves, it often causes problems and arguments.

That means that, including all images and text together, the signature’s total size may not exceed 150 pixels vertically. For staff members, valued contributors, and retired administrators, this limit is 200 pixels. Finally, no individual image in the signature may exceed 650 pixels in width. Example.
