    IMPORTANT: SPAM via Private Messaging

    It has come to our attention that some of you have been receiving a suspicious private message (PM) claiming to be from the forum administration. Those PMs are fake and suppose a serious threat to your system's integrity. The Emulator Zone does not have reasons to send PMs to you (unless it's extremely necessary and forum-related) and plus, in a threatening manner like "deleting your account and report your ISP if you don't pass this test", there's more reason to believe it's fake.

    So, what to do?

    • Check who is sending you those PMs.
    • DO NOT click the links.
    • Report the PM via report button and we'll take care of them.

    Thanks and happy posting!

    Forum Etiquette - New users please read

    The Emulator Zone Forum was originally created with the intention of providing a comfortable place for people seeking support with emulator related problems, emulator enthusiasts as well as the every day person that happens to visit our site. These forums are maintained in that spirit and members are expected to honour those goals.

    The basic guide to etiquette is quite simple: be polite, be mature and tolerant towards other people. Also keep your language clean and respect the opinions of others (even if you disagree).

    Me no speak English
    The lack of syntax in this title is clearly intentional and is there to make a point. As intelligent creatures we have been given the gift of language(speech and writing). Please try to write proper posts in a way that everyone can understand. By doing so you give people one more reason to like you, respect you and want to help you. One more reason to do that is because that way what you leave behind is a good thing for others to read instead of random words stuck together.

    Still, your primary language may not be English. In that case we will be understanding and you should try to co-operate as well as much as you can..

    Sometimes people will write something that you may find offensive and that is completely understandable. In every day life you are surely bound to hear something on the street, read on the newspaper or see on TV something that you do not completely agree with. Before stating your opinion though please consider that the person may not have intended to cause offence in any way. It is very easy to misinterpret a post on forums and on the internet in general. There is absolutely no need to resort to insults or pointless comment. Respect others' views even if you disagree with them and try to back up your views with well structured language and valid facts.

    Posting the right way
    Things like starting a thread in the correct part of the forum, not starting the same thread more than one times and not posting random stuff all over the forum are important. It is the same as throwing litter on the street so we kindly ask you to be more careful.

    Post threads with meaningful titles
    When starting threads please make them as accurate as possible regarding the subject of the thread. This can help people that might be intrested in your subject find it easier.

    That’s the biggest “taboo” around here as some people might call it. Asking for game roms which are copyrighted material could lead us to various legal issues so we ask you to avoid doing that.

    Read the rules
    You will bound to see that phrase written somewhere, “read the rules”. Like all structured societies we too have rules here so make sure you read them before you start posting!

    That is all folks, welcome to our forum and enjoy your stay here…
