Dear BattleForums Patrons, We are sorry for the -need- of this thread. It is actually hear to help protect you as well as us. We have decided to slim down this section's stickies. You shall now find in here everything you'll ever need to know about Hacking Starcraft, Where to look, what to get, how to be safe, the rules, and even the BF top five sites/programs. Section I. Hacking A. BattleForums View We at BattleForums, specifically the members of the hacking sections condone hacking. We realize theirs a strong want for new hacks. Just because we encourage hacking, does -NOT- mean we support any malicious, illegal, dangerous content. The hacks that we support can be seen later on in the BF Top Ten Hacks. Those will be hacks that add on to a game make it more enjoyable for you. To some hacks ruin a game, and for them we are sorry. We would like to ask that if you frown upon hacking, you keep it out of the utilities section. We strongly believe in the principle: Open knowledge among a group of people helps further everyone. Battleforums provides everyone with this ability, but they will not take responsibility for what people use it for. BattleForums will not be held responsible for anything taken, done, used, or tried that causes malicious harm or disciplinary action. We strive to keep our forums clean. B. Blizzards View In contrast to battleforums easygoing view of hacking, Blizzard -frowns- heavily upon the use of hacks with their games. We have collected a bit of data from http://www.blizzard.com and http://www.battle.net , that will help to enlighten you on their view. In summary, Blizzard will immediately mute/ban your cd-key or possibly your IP, if it is found that you use hacks. Let the fear of a danger be a spur to prevent it; he that fears not, gives advantage to the danger. This fact doesn't keep many from using them or creating them. We want our patrons to be knowledge in the consequences. C. BattleForum Top Five Hacks *Working on this.* Section II. Content of Posts A. Sites We realize that sites are a major part of the Internet. Even though this is well known, we do not and will not tolerate spamming of links. If you spam your link for no other reason than getting hits for your site, we will be forced to censor your site. Certain sites have already been censored, if you stumble across one of these it will look like http://www.******.com Please disregard these. Here at battleforums we cater to all ages. This means that we will not tolerate links to offensive or crude material. If at anytime a site comes up as porn or redirects to porn, it will be censored. If you see such a link, please report it ASAP. Posting a porn link will cause you to be banned no exceptions or questions asked. If you're caught posting spam, you will be warned, enough warns and you will be also banned. Each of these will be with possible reinstatement, but at a later time. B. Words We would like the vulgar word content in your posts kept to a minimum. In doing so we have automatically blocked/censored some words. We encourage you to think of more adequate way's to verbalize your thoughts. "Words are but pictures of our thoughts." C. Flaming "Flaming- An insulting criticism or remark meant to incite anger, as on a computer network." We do not allow flaming of any kind. Be it toward hacking or toward a person in general. We will us our ability to protect other members from the taunts and torments of other members. We would like to ask that you control yourselves when it comes to criticism. At one time we were all new to the game. The beginning and endings of all human undertakings are untidy.
