Forums are to be typed in English so that we can moderate them easier. Factions have a private forum which is not moderated. Whilst we do understand that English is not everybody's first language, we cannot moderate other languages adequately. If you require help and cannot speak English well please speak to a staff member and we will try to accommodate that, do not post in your native language if other than English in forums though.

You may use multiple images but they must remain within the size guidelines given to you. Having large files as forum signatures tremendously slows down the loading time of the pages for other players.
