Rules: Also be aware!


  • If you spot something you believe is inappropriate or infringes on the forum rules, please use the "report" functionality - this alerts admins and moderators and allows a much quicker reaction time than would otherwise be possible.


  • Any harassment, inappropriate behavior (or content), adult themes or similarly inappropriate posting is not welcome - please don't waste our time or yours by posting in this way.
  • Administrators reserve the right to change these rules at our discretion at any time.


  • The administrators and moderators of this forum reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any topic or ban any user at any time should they see fit. If you disagree with the actions taken by a moderator or administrator, please utilize the private messaging (PM) system to discuss that action - either with the administrator / mod in question or another administrator or moderator. Threads or posts inquiring as to admin activity, inquiring about or commenting on deleted threads or posts, or requesting the lifting of user bans are not appropriate.
  • Sharing or gifting of accounts is not permitted. Users found to be sharing or gifting accounts will face bans in the same manner as those creating multiple accounts.


  • It is a requirement of the forums that your posts be of a minimum length - if your post is under this length, it is likely that it's contents is either of limited utility or interest to other forum users (posts like "lol" or "nup", etc, merely consume space - they don't actively contribute). If you are finding that your post will not be processed by the forum due to not hitting this minimum length, please reconsider whether your post is actually worth posting in the first place.


  • If you are replying to a post (particularly a long one, or one containing images) and feel the need to include a quote, consider including only the relevant portion you are replying to, rather than the entire thing. If you don't know how to do this, don't use the quote system - people can simply scroll up to view the post, rather than scrolling past the entire thing potentially several times.


  • When posting, please consider the sub-forum that you are posting to. A discussion about your best flash is completely inappropriate, for example, in the Programming forum - yet that same thread is perfectly suitable for the Flash forum.
  • "Spamming" (this includes but is not limited to posting purely to increase your post count, advertising websites / products or services without permission, posting one-word (or similar) replies to topics, etc) is strictly prohibited. To discourage this kind of activity, discussing post counts or even referring to them offhand is also against the rules. Quality is more important than quantity. URLs / links that are considered to be spam may be added to the content filter, preventing anyone from ever posting them on our forums again.


  • By and large, posts should be on-topic and not attempt to drag the conversation off on a tangent. Messages for whom the primary audience is just one person should be sent directly to that person via the PM system, rather than creating a new thread in a public discussion area or posting off-topic content to an existing and unrelated thread. It's inappropriate in our real-world environment to just start talking over the top of someone else and it's no less so here. Be considerate.
  • Posting, attaching, or linking to abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, derogatory, sexist, sexually-explicit or any other material that may violate any applicable laws or good taste is strictly forbidden. Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned (and your service provider being informed).
  • Discussion of illegally copied (pirated / "warez") software, music, movies or similar or how to obtain or otherwise gain access to such material is strictly prohibited. Even hinting at pirated material or the use of it is prohibited.
  • Posting messages on behalf of users who have been banned is forbidden. Once a user has been banned, they lose the right to contribute to the forum community.
  • As a user you agree to any information you have entered being stored in a database. This includes (but is not limited to) posts, private messages and the details you entered when creating your account.


  • The IP address of all posts is recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions. While this information (or any other personal information, such as the details you entered when creating your account) will not be disclosed to any third party without your consent under normal circumstances. This information may, however, be used in order to determine your identity should that be deemed necessary (typically when requested by Police or when making complaints of abuse with your ISP / internet access provider, such as a school or internet cafe). The webmaster, administrator and moderators cannot be held responsible for any hacking attempt (or similar) which may lead to the data being compromised - all reasonable efforts are taken to protect against this eventuality.
  • Please remember that while the administrators and moderators of NG Xtra will attempt to keep all objectionable messages and content off this forum, it is impossible for us to review all messages. All messages express the views of the author, and the owners of the NG Xtra will not be held responsible for the content of any message.
