TheTechGame Community Rules


1.1  TheTechGame website is aimed toward a general audience. Explicit and vulgar language, drug talk, nudity, pornography, and so forth is not allowed. 

1.2  Do not mini-mod. We would like to encourage and thank our members to use the Report button without adding their own criticism. Do not make posts stating other members are breaking the rules or otherwise act like a staff member. Instead, use the report button. 

1.3  All publicly displayed messages are limited to English. This includes posts, titles, signatures, profiles, the shout box, and other forms of public display unless told otherwise by a staff member. 

1.4  When posting a new topic, please do not name the topic title something similar to "HELP ME." Instead, a better title would be "Help me with Modding My Gamertag." It looks better and more people will respond to it this way. 

1.5  All avatars, signatures, and backgrounds must be approved by staff before use. Attempting to display explicit, illegal, offensive, or pornographic content will result in a warning and/or removal of avatar, signature, background, or posting privileges. Banners are also subject to this rule. 

1.6  Do not create a new thread on a topic that is already in discussion. Regardless of whether you "feel" you deserve to have your own thread, the existing thread should be used unless an Admin or Mod instructs otherwise. 

1.7  TheTechGame website's staff reserve the right to lock and/or delete any posts or threads which they deem irrelevant or frivolous at their own discretion. 

1.8  Please use the SEARCH feature of the forums before posting threads that address errors, problems, questions, and almost ANYTHING. Chances are that someone has already asked the same question and received an answer. Please search before starting a new thread. 

1.9  Impersonating staff members is not allowed and offenders will be perma-banned from the site immediately. This includes telling others you are staff or having staff badges as your avatar/signature. 

1.10  Do not ask for/sell/trade reputation or thanks. Do not ask/beg for reputation or thanks for any reason, this includes through the Private Message system. Doing so will result in a warning and possibly a few day ban. Griping about reputation or thanks will not be tolerated and will result in a warning/ban. 

1.11  Do NOT ask for YouTube subscriptions. Instead, use the Sub-for-Sub topic in the Youtube Forum  here.  

1.12  Do not ask for the "Gift of Gold" or rant when you don't get it over someone else. Doing so will result in a temporary posting ban. 

1.13  Any type of Sales/Trades/Giveaways are prohibited on TheTechGame. (e.g. Youtube/Runescape/Xbox ect...) Gold members are allowed to post TTG Gold giveaways in General Discussion. 

1.14  Posting of Private Messages will not be tolerated because it violates the rights of the user in question. Private messages are to remain just that,  private . This rule applies board-wide unless stated otherwise by a administrator. 

1.15  Profile View Boosting - When you knowingly have your total visitors to your profile boosted. If you are caught on either side of this rule, you may face a warning/suspension. 

1.16  Providing a download for any file or service which is designed to harm or disrupt a computer, network, or any other electronic entity will result in an instant ban from the site. Discussion of this material is forbidden. Examples of these malicious files  include, but are not limited to : Viruses, Network stressing tools (host booters, botnets, etc), worms, and IP grabbers. 

1.17  Posting of information related to warnings you have received will not be tolerated. They are for you only and no one else to see. This rule applies site-wide unless stated otherwise by a administrator. 

1.18  Referral sites - Any referral site or app is to not be discussed on TTG. Failure to abide to this rules will result in a warning and a ban. 

1.19  Multiple Accounts - A single person is allowed ONE account. There is no need for someone to have more one account for this website. If we find you have multiple accounts and IF none are banned we will ban all but the main account for you. If we find you have multiple accounts and any of them are banned, all accounts related to the main user will be permanently banned from this website. 

1.20  Sales of TTG accounts will result in permanent bans for all members involved. 


2.1  We do not tolerate spam. In short, do not post small or useless posts that are not relevant to the topic being discussed. This includes only posting images or only posting videos. 

2.2  Do not PM a moderator or admin numerous times saying the same thing to try and speed up an answer/problem. We receive the PM's you get. There is no need to keep sending them. 

2.3  Forum sigs are to be used respectfully. TheTechGame already has to display ads to cover the running costs, so don't annoy our members by making your sig into your personal ad revenue opportunity. (ie: advertising and/or reference/affiliate codes in your sig is prohibited). 

2.4  Advertising on TheTechGame is strictly prohibited. This includes posting in Private Messages, Instant Chat, Shoutbox, Comments, and our Forums. This also includes bypassing the URL filter with symbols, spaces or forum bbcode. 

2.5  Microsoft Points Generators -All of these are fake and mostly contain links to viruses. If you post them on the forums, you will be IP banned from the site and not allowed to return. We do not care if you have 5 posts or 5000; we will not allow this spam on the forums.
