Content Rules

The following rules are true for all content on the official CRYENGINE.com forums, answer hub and comments on the showcase gallery or blog, including but not limited to usernames, avatars, texts, images in public discussions, private messages and other contributions in conversations with fellow users:

• Do not include spam or third-party [commercial or non-commercial] advertisement of any sort in your posts. If you want to advertise your own creations, commercial or non commercial, or offer work for hire, please use the respective sub forums.
• Don't post racist, sexist, gender or any other slurs or hate-speech in any context.
• Do not post any content that is vulgar, excessively violent or contains offensive language.
• Don't spread any illegal content; that includes any kind of Nazi symbols, -terms or -references.
• Do not post pornographic or sexually explicit content.
• Never hijack or maliciously affect other users' or CRYENGINE.com's property.
• Don't post off-topic or attempt to de-rail the thread.
• Don't insult or seek to provoke a negative reaction in other users.
• Never post links to external sale-sites or downloads for your assets; no matter if they are commercial or non-commercial. Please use the CRYENGINE marketplace to distribute your goods instead. Links to the marketplace in advertisement posts for your own offers are ok - bot those belong to the Marketplace forum, exclusively.
• No name shaming or call-outing of other users, people, brands or competitors. If you want to bring to our attention that you have reason to believe somebody did violate the rules, please send a PM to one of the moderators.
