    Forum Etiquette - New users please read

    Introduction
    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..

    Respect!
    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.

    DON’T ASK FOR ROMS
    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…

    Submitted Content Forum - Read Before You Post

    Welcome to the Submitted Content Forum. You may use this part of the message board to submit content for reviewing before it is posted at the main site.
    • Acceptable Material
      If it is a review it has to be one of a game or emulator.
      If it is a guide/manual it has to do with emulation(how to use an emulator etc), not a game.
      New releases - Keep in mind that we check other sites regularly for those ourselves.

    • Necessary Requirements
      You may not copy content written by another person and claim it as your own. Any material found to be breaking that requirement will be removed.

    • Images
      You may use as may images as you like. At first you will have to host them to one of the many free image hosting services available. Once your material is officially posted we will copy them on the server.
