FAQ and Rules
Table of Contents:

The Rules
Our rules are really really simple, if you take the time to learn them. And you should!
  1. Don't be a dick. If you don't have something constructive to say, don't say it! This is the big one.
  2. This forum's official language is English. You're welcome to use other languages (if you at least post a machine translation), though. 'IM' or 'l33t' speak (such as 'u r dum lolol') isn't tolerated.
  3. Be careful about bumping old threads. You should only do so if you're contributing something major and new to the topic, doubly so for general discussions. If it's a hack thread, it's usually OK.
  4. Be careful when double posting. Replying within minutes asking if anybody has read your post is a terrible idea. Double posting after a day or two with something new or updated is fine, though.
  5. Let the staff handle things. Don't try to do our jobs for us — we'll handle problem users.
  6. Don't post NSFW content without tagging it! Not doing so is an instant ban. In general: Think before you link.
  7. The staff have the final say in everything. If we tell you to do something, do it. No exceptions.
And some rules that are mostly specific to the ROM Hacking fora but still a good idea to follow everywhere else:
  1. Read the stickies. They're there for a reason.
  2. No ROM links/ROM requests! If you need to upload a hack, use a patch; either IPS, UPS, or any of the other formats.
  3. Keep things in their forum. Help/Suggestions is not for your hack!

As for the punishments:
  1. A warning.
  2. A short ban to drive the point home.
  3. Permanent ban.

These punishments are a guideline and may be disregarded entirely for particularly egregious screwups.

We're often pretty relaxed, but constantly breaking the rules will get you banned fast.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask one of the admins for help.

About Jul
Jul itself is a community made up of people who predominantly like to just hang around friendlies and talk about whatever, though we also like games and occasionally anime/other things.

I'm new here. Where should I start?
Always, by reading the rules... but since you're here, it's probably a safe bet that you've already done that. (If you haven't, now is a great time.)

Once you've done that, sign up for an account (or log in if you've already made one). It's simple and very easy to do. After you're registered, you're more than welcome to just jump in and say hi. We're friendly people and won't bite (usually). Let us know about yourself, how you found us, or whatever's on your mind — or just jump in and start contributing to discussions.

I've got a question and I need some help, or I found a bug somewhere.
Post it in the forum here, or alternatively just message the main administrator. If it's a security bug in the code, we really recommend the latter.

I've been banned. Now what?
You can try checking your title (under your username in your posts) to find out the reason and when it expires. If there's no expiration, it's probably permanent. If you're post due for unbanning, let an admin know and they'll take care of it.

On the other hand, if it's permanent, you can always try to show us you've changed and request a second chance... but any further antics after that will usually get your account deleted.

I've lost/forgotten my password. Now what?
The best thing you can do is to contact Xkeeper directly. He can help you get it fixed.

I want to throw money at you guys. How do I do that?
Really? How generous.

Donations with this button go straight to the hosting bill, and we can't withdraw them, so you don't have to worry about us secretly buying drugs or other fancy stuff with your money.

However, there is a slight fee involved, so suffice it to say it's often better to donate $20 at once intead of ten $2 donations.

Donate towards Jul's web hosting!

Thanks in advance.

At some point we plan on getting a 'donor star' for those who paid our bills... other than that, there isn't really any other benefit than a warm, fuzzy feeling.

Legal Crap
The site does not own and cannot be held responsible for statements made by members on the forum. This site is offered as-is to the user. Any statements made on the board may be altered or removed at the discretion of the staff.

We do not sell member information like e-mail addresses or passwords to any third party. Data entered into user profiles is completely optional and may be left out at the user's discretion; however, doing so may complicate matters such as account recovery.
