    If you post all about a game thats not released or how you downloaded it you can expect to be banned. The first offence will be a temp ban, followup offences will be perm bans.

    We dont care if you downloaded the leaked version, got it first, want to brag about it. Warez is illegal and not to be discussed nor promoted on this forum. Consider this the first and last warning on the subject. Banning commences NOW.

    One other thing aswell - we don't care if you somehow ordered it from over seas, or your parents got it for you from overseas, or you got it on ebay for cheap, or you are a uber leet beta tester or something - it is STILL NOT to be discussed (discussed - posting screenshots, having discussions about actual gameplay etc) until the game is OFFICIALLY released in Australia.

    Officially released will now be based on this topic -

    Game Release Dates

    Feel free to report the above topic if you know of applicable ammendments to the dates.

    As long as the reviews are of a legitimate source, IE a website showing preview shots etc, then that is fine.

    But if someone here obtains the game before the release date, then we DONT want to know about it.

    Considering your not an admin, why should people obey that?

    If someone gets a copy legally before the release date and brags, why does this call for a banning?

    News for you mate, I am an admin. :) Might want to check out the forum leaders page someday. Oh, and we still don't care if they got it legally (ie from ebay or whatever). AND, if we did allow it, then everyone will claim (like they already do) that they got it legally...

    Not really a hard rule to follow.

    forum leaders? Thats a little bit of a strong way of putting it don't you think?

    I don't classify anyone in here as a leader, i don't even classify a mod as being any better than anyone else.. just they have the power to delete,move, lock etc posts and threads :p

    Unless you were meaning something else? I.e there is actually a page titled 'forum leaders' in which case i will look like a right royal idiot :leet:

    Ummmm what about demos?

    Does that mean if you download a demo of a game coming out .... and review it or something but not mention its a demo.. you'll cop a ban?

    Also whats to stop people downloading the ful version, and reviewing it as if its a "demo".

    I kinda see this new "rule" as failed logic .. as there will just be alot of "demo" reviews popping up here..

    and if we ban demo reviews as well, its gonna seem really REALLY dumb.

    That's my thoughts on the whole thing..

    Then again I own a GF4 MX460, so game playing aint high on my agenda haha.

    What's stopping them ? They'll get a ban if they do, we aren't stupid.

    I can't see a problem with this, just keep talk about the demo and you'll be fine.

    Just think before you post, and you won't get banned.

    Anyway, thread closed, no point in discussing this any further.
