- Unauthorized Distribution of Scripts:
Do not post any scripts that you have not written yourself on any forum unless given permission from the original author; this includes edited or modified scripts. Doing so is theft of intellectual property and will not be tolerated here.
- Offensive Material:
This consists of posting or linking to adult, child, and or anime pornography or any other unethical, inappropriate or offensive material. In the event of illegal content is posted, such as child pornography, the appropriate law enforcement agencies WILL be informed immediately.
- Spam Advertisements:
Any advertising bots will be banned on the spot and if spam advertising does occur, the internet service provider of the associated IP address will be contacted.
- Illegal Torrents / Warez:
The posting of or linking to warez, illegal torrents, cracks, keygens, serials, authentication bypass guides or any other illegal copyrighted material is at no time permitted on the forums. This obviously does not include legal torrents such as the ones provided by Canonical for the Ubuntu distro.
- Key Logging / Password Theft / Phishing:
Any topic related to key logging, password cracking, or helping others create, use, or distribute password cracks or key loggers is strictly prohibited. Any party involved in such topics will be immediately reported to their internet service provider.
- Infected Files:
Posting, linking to, or distributing viruses, trojans, worms, malware and any other malicious pieces of software, in any form, is not tolerated. This also includes topics on the creation and or distribution of the aforementioned items. Any parties involved in such activities will be reported to their internet service provider.
Pretending to be an Administrator, Moderator, Developer, or any other user or rank for any reason at any time is unacceptable.
- Returning After a Ban:
You may not return after a permanent ban.
- Buying and Selling:
Buying or selling of any scripts, services, real world goods, or virtual goods outside of the black market is prohibited. Please visit one of our friendly neighboring communities for anything related to real world money or Runescape related gold.
This involves posting someone else's work claiming that it is your own creation; this includes modified versions of the original work. Doing so will result in an infraction and suspension on the first offence and a permanent ban if it happens again. Copying and or modifying functions or procedures is only allowed if you credit the original author properly. For examples on how to credit properly, please refer to the SRL library or ask an SRL Member.
- Returning During a Suspension:
You may not return to SRL while you are serving a suspension. If you do so, the time your account has been suspended for will be increased and any additional accounts created will be banned. If you continue to make additional accounts to try to get around a suspension, you will be permanently banned from the forums.
- Multiple Accounts:
Users are permitted to have one account and one account only. Any additional accounts made will be immediately banned. Depending on the circumstances, further action may be taken as decided at the staff’s discretion.
Any users caught leaking information or scripts from their respective sections will be immediately de-ranked. The user will be given an opportunity to defend themselves and dispute the allegations.
Please avoid spamming the forum with useless posts. At SRL, we value reputation above post count. If your post does not contribute positively to the ongoing topic, then please refrain from posting it as it is most likely spam. Repeating the same question in multiple sections without waiting for an answer is also spam.
We expect all of our users to act respectfully of each other and the staff. Showing a nasty attitude will earn you an infraction in no time. Behave, don’t stir up trouble, and don’t poke the fire. Help out others, life is already difficult enough.
- Insulting Other Members:
We want our community to remain as friendly and enjoyable as possible. Insulting, flaming, belittling, degrading, personally attacking, and discriminating against other users will not be tolerated. If you continue and make a habit of doing so after being warned, further action may be taken at the discretion of the staff.
- Backseat Moderating:
If you see something that breaks the rules, please report the post by pressing the little red square with an ‘x’ on the right hand side of a post. Please do not chastise or reprimand other users. We have able and competent staff who will handle the situation accordingly.
- Bumping and Grave Digging:
Bumping is unnecessary and unneeded. People will reply in time, so please be patient. Grave Digging is when you reply to a topic that has been inactive for over 3 months and the conversation is obviously dead.
- "Clicks For Cash" Ads and Referrals:
Both are unwelcome here! Posting threads for Clicks For Cash websites will result in 10 day suspension. You will receive and infraction for any referral links in your signature.
- Posting Under the Influence:
It is not allowed to post in any section outside the off-topic category when intoxicated or under severe influence of drugs.
- Malicious Intent:
Posting of any information or directions with a malicious intent is expressly forbidden. If you do so, appropriate action will be taken against you as seen by the staff. An example of malicious intention would be to tell a user to delete his System32 folder to fix an error.
- Inappropriate language:
Inappropriate language, including swearing or cussing, of any kind is prohibited, except in and only in the BBQ Pit section. Directly swearing or cussing at another member, or insulting another member is prohibited on ALL boards. If this rule is broken, we, the staff, have the right to issue an infraction at our discretion.
- All Caps and Multi-Posting:
Please do not post with caps lock on, it is very annoying to read and looks messy. Also, if you have something to add to a post, use the edit button rather than making an additional post right after your own post. The edit button is located in the bottom left corner of your post.
