So you've managed to circum-navigate the join process and after much recovery you are ready to start "contributing" to the forums here. If you don't read this first I will hunt you down I swear to Go.. ok nevermind. By new people I mean anyone who has only just started posting. I don't care if you joined in 1947 but have only lurked since. We have rules here, you can find them by clicking these links:
There are a few key ones I would like to point out to you.
Posts are deleted and threads are locked for a reason. If your thread is locked or your post deleted, please do not post it again. If you’re not sure why this has happened please contact a moderator; do not make a big public fuss about it. Note however that when a thread is locked, we’ll usually post a short explanation as to why if the reason is not obvious.
The PM button looks like this:
Don’t post multiple threads on the same topic throughout the Forum. We understand you may be anxious for a reply but it’s just annoying and that won’t make people any more willing to help you.
This sort of thing can result in short-term bans, and if repeated more permanent ones.
Don’t flame or abuse other posters.
Discussions and requests for illegal downloads or making them available to other posters are not allowed. This content includes (but is not limited to):
* CD Keys (NBA Live or otherwise) & Serial Numbers
* No-CD cracks
* Original Game Files
We are mega strict about this. There is a sticky with more information regarding this particular issue here: viewtopic.php?f=122&t=69472
Here is another big one, for those who just said tl;dr when they saw this THIS IS SOME BOLD RED FONT TO GET YOUR ATTENTION
Signature images must not be larger than 450 pixels wide by 150 pixels high.
That looks like this:
We don't generally allow multiple images in sigs either. If they are extremely small we might let it go, but don't stack them up or they will be removed.
ANOTHER REALLY IMPORTANT THING IN COLOURFUL BOLD WRITING
DO NOT put animated gifs in your sig. Unless you can chop them down to like 50kb I don't want to see them and nor does anyone else. It shocks me how some people think it's alright to put 2-3mb videos in their sigs. It is not. Don't do it. Also, don't embed youtube videos in your sig. Purely because they break the 450/150 sig limit. The only person who gets away with this is Blacksmurf and none of us are really sure why.
For reference, here are a list of mods/admins and what you should contact them about if you have issues.
NBA Live related issues
NBA 2K related issues
NCAA Basketball 10 related issues
Roster patch issues
General forum issues (NBA Talk, General Talk etc)
For a good time
You guys can thank me later for the flood of PM's.
Any questions contact either Andrew, JaoSming, Pdub or myself.
