If you do not agree to be legally bound by all of the following terms then please do not access and/or use “”. We may change these at any time and we’ll do our utmost in informing you, though it would be prudent to review this regularly yourself as your continued usage of “” after changes mean you agree to be legally bound by these terms as they are updated and/or amended.

This web site is directed to adults; it is not directed to children under the age of 13. Please ask a parent or guardian to post on your behalf if you are under the age of 13. Accounts found to be in violation of this rule will be deleted immediately, with no warning.

Post etiquette

You agree not to post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-orientated or any other material that may violate any laws be it of your country, the country where “” is hosted or International Law. Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned, with notification of your Internet Service Provider if deemed required by us. The IP address of all posts are recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions. You agree that “” have the right to remove, edit, move or close any topic at any time should we see fit.

Privacy policy

To use the forum you must agree to the privacy policy.

As a user you agree to any information you have entered to being stored in a database. While this information will not be disclosed to any third party without your consent, and we take precautions to update and secure our site, Media shall not be held responsible for any hacking attempt that may lead to the data being compromised.

Under European data privacy rules, you have the right to delete your account and related personal information at any time. To delete your account, please contact us with your username here.

No swearing, posting of “adult” material, personal attacks or “trolling”

The posting of “adult” or offensive material is strictly forbidden. Posting links to adult material is strictly forbidden. You may not post any material that attacks others on the grounds of their gender, race, religion or sexuality. You may not ask for such material anywhere on this website/message board.

You may not use offensive or vulgar language on this message board. Simply replacing some of the letters in a curse/swear word with a * or any other character is not acceptable. We also expect members to behave respectfully and not launch personal or abusive attacks on other members. Those who post for the sole purpose of causing trouble are not welcome here and will be dealt with accordingly.

No spamming or promotion of competing sites

This forum is for readers only. Running a forum requires significant investment of time and money. While you may post links that are useful to our readers, please do not post links to competing websites.

While we do allow our readers to link to websites and products they consider useful, we may, at our discretion, delete posts which appear to be little more than spamming/attempting to promote commercial products or services. The decision regarding what constitutes a useful link and what constitutes spam is entirely down to the moderators and is not open for debate.

No medical advice

We ask all members not to ask for, nor give out, medical advice. This is because if a member of these forums gave out medical advice that was incorrect, VideoGamePerfection / VGP Media could be held responsible.

No promotion of business interests

You may not promote any website or business you have a financial or other interest in, or use the popularity of this community to help build one of your own. We will make exceptions for this at our own discretion if the product or website you’re promoting is significantly useful or relevant to our visitors and doesn’t significantly harm our own business interests. The forums are here to allow people to freely share knowledge, not provide them with personal financial gain, or free advertising. You may however, place a link to your own personal website in your signature/profile.

No links or requests for pirate software, “warez” or any other illegal material

Providing or asking for information regarding pirated software, “warez”, “gamez”, “ROMS” or any other illegal copies of software protected by copyright is forbidden. There is no such thing legally as “Abandonware”. Discussion of region free mods is acceptable however.

No discussion of politics or religion

These topics are off limits even in the off-topic forum. Not because we hate free speech (quite the contrary) just because they tend to get people so riled up that it becomes a nightmare to moderate. We’re here to help you with video games, not how to vote in the next election or which deity to pray to. There are other forums and discussion boards on the net where you can debate these things.

Private messaging system

The private messaging system, when available, will allow you to send messages to other users of the site that cannot normally be viewed by anyone else on the site.

While we take precautions to make sure that these messages remain private, Media cannot and does not warrant that these messages are secure. If greater security is required, please arrange to use a secure messaging system off-site.

Users suspected of engaging in illegal activities or any activities that would bring VGP Media into disrepute may have their private messages read by a moderator and forwarded to law enforcement if necessary.

We reserve the right to remove or change the private messaging system at any time. We may delete or remove access to private messages at any time, without giving notice. Please ensure that you backup any important messages you send or receive.

Multiple accounts

Only one account per user is permitted.

Posts which violate the rules will be edited or deleted by a moderator and the user who created them will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious, the post will be deleted and the user may be suspended for a period of time or banned altogether. For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers the account will be banned. That means the offending account will no longer function and the user will be blocked from registering again.
