The community forums are a place where people can interact and have discussions about several different topics. However, we ask that you follow these guidelines to ensure that the forums have some productive conversation. Failure to comply with these rules may result in a ban from the forums or the entire site, as well as removal of posts and points!

- No flaming, badgering, spamming, or trolling.
- No discussion of piracy or illegal material, or linking to these illegal activities.
- Do not post material that is hateful or mean towards race, religion, sex, or any other offensive nature.
- Do not post for the sake of forum post count... your posts will be removed if we see you posting multiple 5-7 word posts just for points.
- Do not complain about getting banned, and do not make another account to circumvent a ban.
- Do not post links to lewd or offensive content. Keep everything Safe for Work.
- Do not post any personal information about you or anyone else. We don't want to know your street address.
- Do not post advertising or referral links.
- No excessive swearing or language.
- Turn off your caps lock, do not use excessive ALL CAPS in your posts.
- Do not copy or plagiarize comments.

Borrowed from the Rules and Guidelines page.

I agree with all these rules one-hundred percent, what does &quotlagiarize" mean exactly?

Its basically mean when you copy something off someone else without permission and you take credit of it.

If I see that a single player has posted simple game comments like "cool game" or "awesome" multiple times for a single game, should I flag their comment? If so, just one comment or all?

You should flag all of them.

Yes, if it is just like that, then I think you should just flag it. However, if it is things like advertising, people copying other people's merit comment, then I think you should just report to a mod.

If the rules and Guidelines are already linked to on the main page of the forum, what's really the point of putting them in a post as well?
