SWGEmu Accounts are used to access the SWGEmu Network, including but not limited to: the SWGEmu Forums, Website, Test Center(s), Bug Tracker and IRC Server. All SWGEmu Users must follow the following rules in respect to their SWGEmu Account:

1.1 Multiple SWGEmu Accounts are not permitted. Each user may only have one account per household unless approved by our staff. Measures are incorporated to detect multiple user accounts. Please see the Account Issues Policy (https://www.swgemu.com/forums/showthread.php?t=28) for help.

1.3 If you are banned, it is not permitted to get back to the SWGEmu Network on an alternate account. You may contact an SWGEmu Community Manager to discuss the nature of your ban and its duration via email or private message. Submit a ticket to support.swgemu.com (http://support.swgemu.com) or send an email to complaint@swgemu.com if you feel a ban has been issue unfairly.

PLEASE READ AND FOLLOW SWGEmu Based Server Section Rules and Polices too (https://www.swgemu.com/forums/showthread.php?t=161687).

Additional guidelines:

Respect each other. It's okay to argue, but try to settle flame wars in private messages.
Respect the SWGEmu staff's authority.
Please use only English to communicate. It is okay to use other languages in private messages and forums groups.
Do not report same post repeatedly
Refrain from posting about server status, it is frowned up on. For (somewhat) correct server info use our front page gadget www.swgemu.com (https://www.swgemu.com/), or our IRC #status channel.
Please try to post in appropriate sections
Do not promote or advertise other SWGEmu or non-SWGEmu based servers on our forums in any other section then one designed for that very purpose (https://www.swgemu.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=198). If you do decide to do that, follow the guidelines posted in the sticky thread in that section (https://www.swgemu.com/forums/showthread.php?t=36265). Any posts that are outside that section or are not in accordance with our guidelines will be deleted. Keep in mind that re-posting of deleted content is already regulated by our website and forum guideline 2.2
In situations where the interpretation, implementation, or specific application of a rule is called into question, it will default to the staff to provide guidance and ruling on such circumstance. Forum/game users may file an appeal to said ruling at the listed locations above in the "Voicing your concerns" section. All submissions will be reviewed by senior staff.
When posting large pictures use a spoiler BBcode
We reserve the right at all times (but will not have an obligation) to remove or refuse to distribute any Content on the Services and to terminate users or reclaim usernames.
Forums signature recommended size 500x250, even though we will allow signature to be wider than 500p please refrain from making them taller than 250p.
These rules are subject to change at anytime.
