Community Rules & Guidelines

CrazyWare Rules and Guidelines

Welcome to CrazyWare Arcade! Please take a look at our rules and guidelines. These apply to all areas of CrazyWare Arcade, including the store, game ratings, discussions, and comment sections.

When providing feedback, posting information, or discussing a product that is listed on the store, please make sure you are being relevant, constructive and polite (whether it’s positive or negative). Developers take feedback from all kinds of sources into account, even though they may not have the time to respond to every post or question.

When posting comments, always be respectful and civil. Don't be a jerk to others. There are real people behind the screens, and your words and actions can affect other people.

Please note that we reserve the right to edit, delete, move, or merge any content at any time if we feel it is inappropriate, abusive, or incorrectly categorized.

General Rules

Please obey the following rules:
  • Do not attack, harass, or insult other members
  • Do not abuse, or encourage abuse of the comment flagging system
  • Don’t abuse, or encourage abuse of the game reporting system
  • Don’t abuse, or encourage abuse of the content reporting feature
  • Do not post personally identifiable information (i.e. name, address, e-mail, phone number, etc.)
  • Do not post spam, or re-post modified or deleted content
  • Do not abuse, or encourage abuse of the rating system (i.e. “dislike-bombing” a game)
  • Do not impersonate other users
  • Do not create multiple accounts (there are a few exceptions, such as family members, friends, or co-workers connected to the same network, or if you have lost access to your account and created a new one)
  • Please be civil, mature, and respectful
  • Please report users who are not complying with the rules and guidelines

Content Rules

Do not post any content on CrazyWare Arcade containing the following:
  • Porn, inappropriate or offensive content, warez or leaked content or anything else that’s NSFW (not safe for work)
  • Discussion of piracy, including, but not limited to:
--Cracks
--Key generators (or “keygens”, for short)
--Console emulators
  • Cheating, hacking, game exploits
  • Threats of violence or harassment, even as a joke
  • Copyrighted or trademarked material (magazine scans, company logos, etc.)
  • Soliciting, begging, auctioning, raffling, selling, advertising, referrals
  • Racism, sexism, ageism, discrimination, or bigotry
  • Abusive language, including swearing
  • Drugs and alcohol
  • Religious, political, and other provocative or “prone to huge arguments” content

No Backseat Moderating

Backseat moderating is when people who aren’t moderators try to enforce website rules. If you see someone breaking the rules, report them by clicking the report/flag button or simply ignore the offensive post(s), content, thread, or review.

Please don’t try to enforce website rules, unless you’re a staff member. Let us do the moderating.

Reporting comments, games, and other content to the staff

If you see a game, comment, image, or other content that is in violation of the Rules and Guidelines, please report the comment or item by clicking the flag/report button, or clicking “Report this Game” next to the game.

You can also report people by clicking “Flag as inappropriate” next to their comments.

Repeat offenders

Repeat offenders of the rules and guidelines listed above will be banned from CrazyWare Arcade.

Bans

The banning of a user may be temporary or permanent, depending on the severity of the violation(s). For example, impersonating/posing as other users will result in a permanent ban. Posting comments or content pertaining to illegal activities will result in a ban. Creating multiple accounts will also lead to you getting an infinite/permanent ban (though this can be appealed, under certain circumstances).

IP address bans may also be issued, especially under extreme circumstances. For instance, if someone is creating 70 alternate accounts, and breaking many of the rules, they’ll definitely be banned. Another example is numerous people at home, at work, or elsewhere deliberately posting racist, homophobic, disturbing, or provocative comments and other content, and bullying other members. A less extreme example is someone who is trying to evade a ban.
