    Our forum rules are very easy and there are only a few of them:

    1. Do not write useless posts for collecting coins

    Do not try to cheat our system and do not post an unnecessary amount of useless posts only to earn credits here.

    This includes one word posts! You should be able to write a complete sentence. It must not be perfect english grammer but if your are not able to express yourself in a descent way feel free to be a silent reader here but please do not post anything which consists of one word or emoticons.

    Examples For Bad Posts:

    • :)
    • Wow
    • Amazing
    • Agree
    • Great
    • I like
    • Stupid Project
    • and so on ...
    Examples For Good Posts:
    • I like your motion simulator because ....
    • I don't agree with you because ...
    • I like to present you the following ...
    • and so on ...
    If you like a post or thread just use the rating box which sits below each post and use that one instead posting a one-word-comment

    We have a zero spam tolerance policy and writing multiple bad posts will cause a ban of your user account. You can read here more about our coin rules

    2. Do not spam
    We ban immediately all spammers permanently without exception

    3. Behave respectful and friendly

    4. Do no post illegal content

    This also includes anything that contains weapons or porn stuff

    5. Only english language is allowed
    Posts in another language will be deleted without further asking. Foreign languages are only allowed in the corresponding threads

    6. Do not post excessive advertising
    If you are a company you can post from time to time in the market place section
    if you want to advertise anywhere else send me pm for our advertising plans

    We will delete any postings without further asking with phrases like (except off topic section):
    • looks good mate
    • Great work
    • Funny thing
    • Wow, funny
    • etc.
    7. Do not ask for support via personal message (pm)
    All support questions should be handled publically in the corresponding support forum so that anyone with a similar question can participate on it.
    Exceptions: If someone is offering explicitly his support via pm feel free to ask him. On the other hand it's still the better choice to ask your questions publically.

    I think this post should be sticked on top of every sub-forum and/or in the new posts search results.
    In other forums - I think they call 'em Announcement Titles - they are like stuck sections

    I meant something like the following, from Assetto Corsa forum.
    the first section - Announcement Title - is stuck, made of pinned threads:

    Anyway, what you did should be already enough to stop the spamming

    As I advised elsewhere please start your own thread, as your question does not belong here.

    Please keep in mind that we will delete any postings without further asking with phrases like (except off topic section):

    looks good mate
    Great work
    Funny thing
    Wow, funny

    and at least posted similes instead of emoticon buttons

    etc.

    Instead of this you can use emoticons as much as you want....

    The main goal is to avoid spamming multiple threads just to gain some coins with useless posts.
    You can say you like one project, but when you do so in many ones in 5 minutes... ban hammer!

    You have been banned due to multiple spamming attempts, a few days ago I tried to get in touch with you via private message, but you did not respond. Phrases like

    Great work
    Funny thing
    Wow, funny
    etc etc etc

    are not allowed. Instead of this you can use emoticons.

    Hello @Pit
    I would like to make it clear that we are in the Chinese mainland login forum needs to cross the firewall, and the speed is very slow, so that sometimes a few days are not logged on the forum, maybe I did not see your mail contact,。
    Of course, anyway I Must follow this rule.
    I would like to have to confirm the rules:
    1. Word is too small will be considered spam,is this the decision of the factors?
    2. I really need to increase the coin, can i gradually increase through the normal replies?
    3. If we reply to a large number of posts in a short time , whether posts will be considered is spam by the system?
    Your rule is simple, but not is very detailed, i want to trouble you to answer my doubts, :(I do not want to be banned again, thank you..hug:
    Best regards.

    Hi Leo I was in Beijing 3 weeks ago and had no issues connecting to xsimulator.net (even Facebook which I didn't expect). Anyway I think you did understand the rules, collecting coins by posting senseless content is not allowed.

    Updated our forum rules with some good and bad examples.
    All new members should read this, especially the new point 8!
