Please read the official Terms of Service and the gamerDNA Privacy Statement
Some simple forum Do’s and Don’ts:
Good Manners and Respect Dos and Don’ts
1. Abuse and disrespectful behavior are not tolerated.
The purpose of the forum is to provide a platform for the exchange of ideas. Occasionally, conflicts may arise when people voice opinions. Be courteous when disagreeing with others. Debating the opinion is appropriate, however criticism against the originator of the opinion is not allowed. Disrespect can be construed as flaming, trolling, harassing, profanity, abusive language or abbreviations, personal attacks, racial, religious, ethnic, sexual slurs, or similar behavior/language.
This applies to both “public” threads and private messages.
The above are examples of behavior that is not tolerated on the forums. Directly attacking another poster will result in a warning. If the behavior persists, further consequences may be enacted against your account in our sole discretion.
**gamerDNA will be exercising a strict policy in both the “Hello World” and Support forums. gamerDNA believes that it is very important to keep these sections of the forums clean of trolling,flaming and similar behavior so that we can ensure the best experience for the gamerDNA community members who are new or need help.**
2. No posting of personal information
Please respect the privacy of other gamerDNA members and do not give out information such as phone numbers, addresses, email addresses, etc.

You are not permitted to publicize any private correspondence (including petitions, email or PM correspondence, etc.) received from any of the aforementioned without permission. As such, warnings and bans are not to be discussed on the forum. Such matters shall remain private between the gamerDNA staff member and the member.

If you have questions regarding a post or thread that has been removed or subject to other moderation, feel free to contact a moderator to discuss it.

Below is a list of examples of non-constructive posts. As a rule, non-constructive posting is not permitted.
Exploits should be reported through the proper method by filing a report at the gamerDNA Support page .Discussions about unverified problems on the site can cause unnecessary panic in the community. When there is an issue the community needs to be aware of, we will make an official statement about it.
6. Impersonating another forum member, moderator, volunteer, administrator or gamerDNA employee is strictly prohibited.
You are expressly forbidden from impersonating anyone else, including those named above, on the forum or in the game, even in jest. This may be grounds for permanent loss of your gamerDNA account.

Posting on behalf of a suspended member is not allowed. Working around a ban through other people’s accounts, trial or secondary accounts to continue posting is also prohibited and may incur an extension of a current ban. You are personally responsible for your conduct on the forums. If you create a new account to continue posting because another account was suspended, any forum and/or game accounts involved will be permanently suspended. Forum and/or game bans apply to a person, not specifically an account.

Instead, post your comments only in the official thread.
