    Last Updated : March 9th, 2018 || Edition 1.0

    These forum rules and regulations are to be used as the baseline for forum conduct, and will explain actions that a user may take that will result in moderator intervention and forum repercussion. These rules and regulations and the consequences associated with them can and will be changed at any given time, and will take effect from the time of change, regardless of the presence of formal notice.

    • only have one operating forum account active at a time,
    • select an appropriate forum avatar to display alongside your account name if you so choose,
    • select an appropriate forum signature to display beneath your posts if you so choose,
    • keep your account up-to-date with your own personal information for the purposes of account security and personal verification.
    You also agree that, if you fail to uphold these points, or if you have selected any of the above pieces of personal identifiers which we deem inappropriate, your account can and will be subjected to restrictions and/or alterations at our own discretion.

Any infractions of these rules may result in a forum warning, or further consequences as we deem it necessary.

    Appropriate Shoutbox Use
    The Helios shoutbox is absolutely and completely subject to any and all of the above restrictions, and as such, any infractions of the above rules may result in the offending forum account receiving consequence as per the discretion of the responding Helios Forum Support team member. The shoutbox is a privilege granted to all users by default, however it may be revoked from any user at our own discretion.

    Forum Account Restriction
    Access to the Helios forums in their entirety is also a privilege granted to all users by default, and as such, it too may be revoked from any user at any given time at our own discretion. All prior infractions will be visible for your account's lifespan and may contribute towards the decision to restrict your forum account without any warning or notice. We encourage users to actively avoid breaking any of the forum rules and regulations, as complete account restriction is a last resort to be used only when necessary.

    Thank you for taking the time to read and understand the Helios Forum Rules and Regulations. Should you have any questions or concerns about the above document, we encourage you to contact a member of the Helios Forum Support Team at your convenience. We hope that you familiarize yourself sufficiently so as to avoid any interruption in forum use due to the consequences of your actions.
