Location Rules

#1 Post by SEGA_Genesis » Sat Jun 29, 2019 12:00 am

I don't know if it's because it's 12:55 and I exhaustedly glossed over the location section of the rules, but I had a question about the rules regarding your location.

Obviously you need to give your city, state, and country for the anti-spam bot and to even get your account verified. However afterwards there is a location box in the profile settings.

What are the rules on this?

could you put things like "the Moon", or "Soviet Union", or "Right behind you", or or does it have to be something serious?

Now that I'm getting adjusted to the forum I'm messing around with the personalization features, and I don't wanna get banned for doing something I wasn't aware was not allowed.

Thanks guys.

Regarding the location, keep it truthful. IIRC at least one of the moderators checks the IP addresses, which can be used to verify which country you're in.
