The following are offenses that will result in an immediate and permanent ban from the Paintball Central Forums:

  1. No pornography or links to sites with pornography. This website is not limited to persons 18 and older. Pornography includes posting images with obvious nudity, exposed genitals or female nipples. Links to pornography or links to sites with pornography are a bannable offense. This includes indirect links, photos or videos with the url linked or displayed. We allow members to post images of persons who are wearing very little clothing but do not qualify as pornography. Those images will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and can be removed at the discretion of a staff member. Again, all images must have any link or address that links to somewhere with pornography removed.
  2. Racism, discriminatory remarks, links to racist websites, racist pictures or racist language including slang on our site is not allowed. Discrimination will not be tolerated and will result in an immediate ban.
  3. We do not tolerate scam artists. We have and will continue to cooperate with law enforcement agencies to catch those engaged in criminal behavior on this web site.
  4. Paintball Central user accounts are non-transferable and may not be sold, shared or given away. Do not impersonate someone else or pretend to be an employee of a company you are not affiliated with. Users may not commit Posting Fraud by pretending to be a 2nd user in order to post positive or negative reviews of products or comment on topics as though they were two separate unconnected users. All accounts involved in Posting Fraud will be permanently banned from use.
  5. Do not spam the Paintball Central Forums in any way. Other field or businesses are not allowed to start threads regarding their own products or services for sale. This is our website, we pay for the bandwidth. If you feel you have something we should allow you to post, contact moderator.

  6. No non-sanctioned contests, money making schemes, lottery contests or referral games are permitted. Pyramid schemes are scams, don't work, and nobody here wants to hear about them. They are considered spam.

    The following are offenses that will usually result in a 1 to 7 day temporary ban and possibly a permanent ban:

  7. Do not bypass or attempt to bypass the swear filter. The filters will catch most words, but intentionally replacing letter(s) with a *, misspelling a word, spacing out words or avoiding the swear filter in any way will result in a ban.Pictures or videos of banned words count as avoiding the filter.
  8. No trolling. Do not make posts that are inflammatory, or designed to get people riled up. Substance is the key to not being labeled a troll. If you disagree with someone or something, simply say why.
  9. Do not post other's phone numbers, addresses, pictures, instant messenger aliases, email addresses, etc., without their permission. Respect the privacy of others. Paintball Central reserves the right to release such information if need be.
  10. Do not post any material that is protected by copyright, trademark or other proprietary right without the express permission of the owner(s) of said copyright, trademark or other proprietary right. This includes posting links to or requesting illegal software.

    Each section may have its own rules stickied. Please read and follow those rules. The following is common forum etiquette for all of Paintball Central.Excessive abuse will result in a ban:

  11. Think before you post. Posts containing "ibc", "pwnd", "drink bleach" or any other off topic waste of space quickly becomes very annoying to those who are seeking useful information. Please do not type “first post, second post," etc. even if you are indeed the first poster in a thread.
  12. Post content in the appropriate forum. Read the forum stickies, or ask a moderator if you are uncertain of the correct forum to post to.
  13. Keep the use of colored text formatting colors to a minimum. Not everyone uses the same style, so text made to be blue with the [color=blue] tag in one style may not be readable to everyone in another style.
  14. Do not post in all capital letters. Posting in all caps is considered yelling, and is not only annoying, but impolite.
  15. Do not start threads directed solely towards another user. Use the private message function to contact individuals.
  16. No fundraisers or collections for charity on the site. We have no way of controlling where the money goes to make sure it gets to the right people.
  17. Posts that encourage or promote dangerous or illegal uses, modifications or actions will not be tolerated.
  18. Think of the Paintball Central Forums as a PG-13 website. If you want to post material that wouldn't be allowed in a PG-13 movie, then it is not appropriate here.

Company representatives, employees, teams, sponsored players and anyone wishing to promote a company, product or service need to follow rule numbers 4, 5 and 6.
