Rules
1. No Spamming
SPAM (Stupid Pointless Annoying Messages) topics and replies are not good for your reputation at these forums. Expect others to dislike you for spamming too much. SPAM topics/replies are always subject to closing/deletion. Examples of Spamming include:
1. Replies stating that only that you agree/disagree without your added opinion.
2. Frequently replying to topics with very few words. (A sentence would be nice you know)
3. Posting things that the general audience already knows. (Especially if you know they know)
4. Replies that have nothing to do with the main topic. (Just Post a New Topic!)
5. Postings that have only smilies.
6. Unsolicited (Not looked for or requested) advertising. (This is only allowed in the Website Chamber. See the website chamber for additional rules)
7. Posting for the sole purpose to increase postcount.
8. Replying to a topic and only saying that you "don’t know". If you don’t know, then don’t post a reply! It wouldn’t help anyone out. Besides it would make you look like a fool . . .
9. Replying to another Spam reply/topic announcing only about the Spam reply/topic. You would be pointing out the pointless!

2. Advertising
Advertising in your topics/replies is not allowed. Be careful though, posting a link to a site to help a member on something is ok. You can only post your site in a new topic if it is in the Website Chamber. Please see the sticky inside the Website Chamber for further rules on advertising.

3. No Porn/WareZ/CracKs or illegal material allowed
This forum is for the general public and we don’t tolerate any of this type of material. If any of this is found it will be deleted and the offender will most likely be permanently banned from the forums.

4. No ROMs
Nintendo declares that they are illegal, so we declare that they are illegal. For more info check this link: ‘http://www.nintendo.com/corp/legal.jsp’. Do not ask us for, or post links to ROMs. Offending topics will be locked/edited/deleted as needed.

5. No Flaming
Flaming = insulting others and/or their ideas while disreguarding the person’s feelings. Flamewar topics will be locked. Try to settle any disputes using private messages. If someone bothers you, put that member on your ignore list in your profile and send a private message about the troublesome member to an admin. Remember to give respect to get respect.

6. Don’t ask to be a moderator.
Moderators are chosen by the GHPF staff and asking only lowers your chance to become one.

7. Double Postings are to be used to a minimum.
This rule does not apply to chambers where posts don’t count and the Fan Works Chamber. Double Posting is when one member posts a message and then posts a second message directly after their first post. (Another member didn’t reply between). In areas that this rule does apply, you may only double post when there is a time difference of 12 hours between the two posts. Triple or more postings in a row will not be allowed. If you need to add/correct something to a post, use the handy EDIT or DELETE button!

8. Avoid Necromancy (Replying to old topics that haven’t been posted for awhile)
Old topics are closed and moved to the graveyard chamber. We are defining that necromancy is considered topics that have not been posted in for three months. If you have a good reason to re-open a certain topic, you may request so, by sending a Private Message to a member of the staff. Or, you may create a new topic on the discussion. (Rule added on Sept. 25, 2005)
