Things have gotten a bit out of control. A few rules to help keep the forums tidy. Violating most of these will result in a ban:

- No asking for promo codes unsolicited
- Keep threads on topic
- Fake release threads will result in a ban
- Do not spam your blog or review site.
- You have to be 13 years or older to participate in these forums

Thanks for the update, glad to see things are getting done.

Arn, when I first came to these forums I went straight to the iPhone games section not knowing anything about the rules because there is nothing there telling us of them.
And if we close a thread or worse, ban somebody, they may not know why.
So I suggest a sticky should be put in all the sections, especially the iPhone and Touch games section, explaining the rules. This way there are no excuses. See what I mean?

That would be a good idea.

I agree with all of them except the 2nd one. To an extent. Maybe not let a topic about Rolando go to other platformers, but instead allow something informative to drift to questions and deeper conversation. But the others make great sense, and then some.
