Note: These are only guidelines for moderators. If a mod feels that you deserve a higher punishment, they may do so at their own discretion. This means if they think 3 points isn't enough for posting in the wrong section, they can make it higher or expire in a longer amount of time.

Other guidelines/miscellaneous tips you might want to follow:

For the 'Hack Downloads' section, new threads must be approved by a moderator before they will appear to the general public. Your thread should either be approved or declined within 24 hours. If it takes longer than that for a moderator to approve your thread, feel free to PM them about approving your thread. This will show them that you are most likely serious about getting your hack approved, and will remind them to check the moderated threads.

Before posting a thread, think about what you are posting. Follow these steps to assure that you won't receive an infraction on what you are posting:
  • Is it relevant to the section?
  • Will it help other members of GamerzPlanet?
  • Does it break any of the rules stated above?
  • Has it already been posted before?
  • Did I give proper credits to the author/get permission from him/her? [If it's not your hack.]
That will help you in deciding whether or not it's a good thread to post.
