Forum Rules/TOS

Forum Rules:
1. Do not use profanity or sexually explicit language we have people of all ages who visit here so keep it clean.

2. Do not engage in personal attacks against others

3 Do not post links that point to inappropriate content, such as pornography, game hacks, cd cracks etc. The link will be removed.

4. Treat others how you would expect them to treat you

5. Basically No profanity, no personal insults, no clan bashing, no ongoing disputes, no off color comments… in other words, keep it clean and considerate.

6. What not to post!!

Types of Images. Images that can be considered offensive, such as racially motivated, that puts down others etc.

Hate speech. You figure it out. If it serves no other purpose than to incite, demean, or diminish any other Member(s), then it really serves no purpose at all. You will usually be warned or asked to explain your reason for conducting yourself that way, if you have one. If you have some compulsion to continue behaving in a fashion that otherwise appears beyond your control, you should settle your issues elsewhere.

Unfounded Slander or Libel. You are solely responsible for the content and veracity of your posts, profiles, and uploads. Please refer to the varied Amendments of the US Constitution that govern free speech and freedoms of the Press. Basically, if you can't back it up, or don't have a good reason for saying it, then don't. "Truth to the best of your knowledge" is gossip, and "ignorance does not provide exemption."

Overt Plagiarism, Intellectual Property Theft. We're not going to Google your posts. We're not going to check if you used a collegiate level of internal citation. If another Member reports that you have stolen his/her words or work, we will be happy to assist the Prosecution. If you copy from other sources without crediting them, SFI Clan maintains no liability and may even assist a petitioner or complainant in redress.

Child Pornography. NO, NO, NO, NO, and NO. In case that wasn't clear, NO, YOU ABSOLUTELY MAY NOT POST/UPLOAD/ATTACH ANY PERSONS APPEARING TO (a) be under the age of 18 who is not yourself and suitably dressed [when in doubt, it will be removed]; ( be engaged in a non-consensual act; or © condone, participate, or encourage sexual acts with non-human creatures/objects.

Copyright Infringement. Since certain portions of our site permit the uploading of images from your computer, it is the expectation of SFI forum Staff that said depictions are (a) you; ( licensed to you; © owned exclusively by you; or (d) otherwise defensible as "public domain." Reproducing or uploading unlicensed images cannot be monitored 100%, but their compliance with any applicable Federal regulations (such as Title 18, §2257) is expected. Images are subject to inspection and removal at our discretion.


Any entity making claim to specific images should contact one of the SFI forum administrators, ask nicely, and the images will be withdrawn as soon as possible. If an image is of you and you did NOT license or otherwise allow its use to anyone else, said image will be deleted immediately.

7. Impersonating an SFI member (by registering using their name etc) on the forum. Simply put this is a one way ticket to getting banned so DON'T do it or you will be banned.

Continued violations can result in being banned


We reserve the right to update these rules at any time. It is the posters responsibility to know the rules.

[SFI] Clan is a non-profit, independently-run site, and in order to keep this site alive and running, we'll need your help! We rely on donations simply to stay afloat. The [SFI] Clan is run by volunteers that put lots of work into the site for the purpose of helping our members enjoy the SFI gaming community. None of us get paid for the work we do, because every cent donated goes right back into the [SFI]Clan for site fees and gaming servers.
