By registering an account at the Hidden Street forum, you agree to follow our member conduct. The ToS may be changed at any time and without direct notice to individual visitors, so it is recommended that you check back with this page at any time you have questions or concerns.

1. Offensive Posting

Posts of offensive nature are not allowed. This includes, but is not limited to:
  • Using vulgar, profane, or sexually explicit language excessively
  • Using race, religion, sexual orientation, culture, ethnicity, handicap, nationality, or gender as a means of insult
  • Using threatening, harassing, defamatory, hate-speech, or libelous language
  • Posting or requesting links to illegal or offensive websites, such as pornography and hate-speech websites.
2. Flaming (Insulting Other Users) / Trolling (Inciting Flames)

Posts clearly insulting other board members, individually or as a group, directly or indirectly, are not allowed. Posts intended to annoy and/or offend other posters by going against the clear nature of a board or topic are not allowed.

3. Illegal Activities

Posts that violate or incite others to violate the law are not allowed. We take this very seriously, thus a permanent ban is imminent. This includes, but is not limited to:
  • Asking/providing links to macro/botting/cracking/hacking programs
  • Methods of circumventing copyright protection (Cracks, No-CD Patches, CD Keys, mod chips)
  • Selling mesos/account for money
  • Trading items and/or mesos between varying servers
4. Spamming / Disruptive Posting

Irrelevant posts that disrupt the forum will be removed, intentionally or not, are prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to:
  • Posting multiple hard-to-read or nonsensical messages in a single or multiple topics
  • Posts irrelevant to the topic, or the specific boards
  • Posts that specifically promote other websites and/or forums
5. Image Sizes, Avatars and Signatures

We do not encourage posting images larger than 800x600, especially images that break the design of the forum.
  • Images with posts over the specified limit will be removed.
  • Signatures should not contain more than one image, and its size not more than 600x150.
  • Avatars are absolutely restricted to a maximum of 120x120, and any avatars found to exceed the specified length will be removed automatically.
6. Multiple Accounts

Creating multiple accounts for the sole purpose of disrupting the boards, trolling/flaming other users and going against the ToS with any elaborate devious purposes will not be tolerated.

7. Bugs and Exploits

Using exploits or tricks to gain privileges, access, or abilities not clearly intended by the forum design is prohibited. While you are more than welcome to try and find any exploits away from the public eye, making them public or using them for personal benefit is grounds for immediate loss of all known accounts.

8. Others

Any other activity that is clearly detrimental to the flow of conversation and normal activities of the boards and its users may also be deleted. Advertisements without the consent of the administrators are not allowed.

Messages and topics may be removed at any time at the sole discretion of the administrators and moderators. All determinations of what is "acceptable" and "unacceptable" content will be determined solely by the administrators of Hidden Street, and you agree that the decision of the administrators and moderators is final, and you may not legally contest their rulings.
