1. Allowed Languages: English!
For non-english content you will receive a warning. Only for language packs the description can be in the language of the uploaded pack.

2. No Attacks / Retaliation of any kind against a member, or group of members
If you are a long standing member, act like one. Lead by example and assist other newer members rather then attacking them. We look upon our veteran members to use this opportunity to teach the newer members the appropriate way to use these forums. If someone insults you, do not retaliate but report the offending post using the 'Report' link located in each post's bottom right corner.

3. Uploads
Upload your content in the Download system without password. If you upload a virus, malware, trojans etc. you will get banned. You are not allowed to upload minimal changed "custom" skins!
If you like to use an external file host - only MEGA, Google Drive, Dropbox, Zippyshare and Workupload are accepted at this point.

4. Broken files
All who report a file as broken which is downloadable and unzipable will receive a warning. The reason is that most members are just too lazy to read the info/ instructions in file folders and then report the download as broken because they can't get it to work.
We are not responsible for any stolen or copyrighted content, if you use the broken file button for that you will also receive a ban. If you think one of our members stole your content / infringed your copyright please contact us to allow us taking appropriate steps.

5. No spamming / Low-Quality Content
Spamming is characterized by the initiation of threads or posts that contribute nothing to our forum, be it off topic or on topic. Examples include: empty bodies, bodies with few words that have no relation to the current thread or discussion and those posts that state they are spam, either to annoy or increase a member's post count (means posts like "Thanks" or something similar). This determination is made by the forum moderator or administrator and is not up for discussion.

Low-Quality (LQ) Content is border line "spamming" but less sever in most cases. LQ Content can be defined in many ways. Such as: Low Quality Posts/ Threads, Low Quality Uploads This rule is pretty self explanatory. If you want to be on the safe side post good and useful content that benefits the community.

6. No advertising
Absolutely no advertising will be allowed in the general forums. Threads can not contain a referral link or will be instantly deleted (a warning will be given to the offending user as well). This applies for monetization links and / or PPC URL shorteners as well. This includes staff and members.
For any form of advertising of products or services you can use our Market Place forum.

7. No topic bumping
It is not allowed to bump a topic without a meaningful post. If you do it you will receive a warning. If you do it three times the ability to post content will be removed for 7 days.

8. No Cross-Posting
Cross-Posting is when you post the same message multiple time in various threads or forums. Continuing to post a similar message will result in a ban.

9. No Pornographic material
Any sexually oriented imagery or links to such content will not be tolerated and will be punished with a ban.

10. No excessive cursing of swear words
We encourage you to use our community as a forum to debate topics, but don't use swear words. We will not tolerate abuse upon another member.

11. No Ripping/ Unauthorized use of code
You are free to use all knowledge here for your personal, non-commercial gain. You are not allowed to re-post any content by another user without prior consent.

12. No signature / picture abuse
If we find that an image you post in your threads, posts or signature is offending to anyone or contains advertising in any form it will be immediately removed and your account will be disabled. Be sure to keep your signature picture at a reasonable size.

13. Signature size
Always use the KISS method!
Kiss = Keep It Short & Simple

14. Respect the authority of Moderators and Administrators
If you do not like something that a staff member did, send them a Private Message. Don't complain about a deleted topic, post or a moved topic in the forums. We do not have time to inform everyone about why a post has been deleted/ moved. You can report staff abuse via the PM system by messaging any global moderator or administrator.

15. Warnings
Warnings will not be applied without a reason. If you have a problem with a warning, talk with the staff member that warned you via PM. Other administrative staff cannot follow the reasons of your warnings. In case of further disagreement invite another staff member into the conversation.

16. Support
Support will be given in the support forums, not in other forums and not as PM. Anything that is not posted in forums, will be ignored or deleted. People who PM a staff member with their support topic or a support question will receive a warning as well.
This is not a teaching page, means that we will not answer on questions with basic HTML, basic install questions, other basic things which can simply be found by using google or on any server problems (such things you can ask in appropriate Helpdesk sections). We will also not answer questions which are already answered somewhere else in forums. It can be that such topics are simply deleted.
Follow the instructions in the support forums and the topic layout which you can find as pinned topic in these forums or the topic will be deleted!

17. Questions
Follow the instructions in the forum or the topic will be deleted!

18. Forum Bans / Requests
The rules for forums are in these forums (if different from general rules) except this one: People who PM a staff member with their request will receive a warning.

19. User Names
It is not allowed to use usernames which are similar to staff members or infringe another rule. If you do so you will become a new "nice" name from us.

20. Multiple Accounts
Multiple accounts are not allowed. If you do create multiple accounts just for having more options, all your accounts will be banned permanently.

21. Leeching
Leeching is not allowed. If you download stuff here and upload it on another site without our consent you will receive a permanent ban.

22. Downloads
You need minimum an active (means not banned) account on DemonScripts and 5 useful (means approved) posts.
If your posts are not useful (just to increase the post counts), your posts will be deleted, you'll receive warning points, your post counts will be set to 0 and you will be restricted to post in moderated status only.
All posts with less than 20 characters and without real sentencing is definitely not useful. All things that count as spam are not allowed and pushing old topics is not allowed as well. Especially do not give unsuitable answers in questions and support forums, post crappy tutorials or write things like "I need this, too" under a request.
If you PM a staff member because of the approval you'll receive the same warning with the restrictions like for not useful posts.

23. Requests
Follow the rules in the forum or the topic will be deleted! Requests are only acceptable in the relating Request sections!

24. Bans and Proxy IPs
Ban evading is NOT allowed. If you where suspended for a certain amount of time it is NOT worth the trouble to evade the ban as it will lead to a permanent ban. To prevent members who are banned/ suspended we have banned common proxy / VPN IPs. That being said, the use of vpn's is at your own risk. If another member gets banned and your ip address falls into the same range you might get banned as well due to it.

25. Membership Upgrades
Membership upgrades are final and non-refundable. Any attempts for charge-backs will result in a permanent termination of membership. Read about the benefits of the premium levels before committing to it or ask about it if in doubt.
