Welcome to Pokémon Hackers Online! If you are a registered member, or are in the process of registering, then thank you very much. You're seeing this page because likely you are about to make a new thread or post, which is great! Before you do, however, we ask all members to read and accept the following Global Forum Rules.
- No Spam
Do not make posts that are pointless or unrelated to the thread's topic, and do not quote or reply to a post that is pointless or unrelated to the thread's topic. This kind of discussion breaths further off-topic discussion. If you would like to talk to a user about an unrelated topic, you can send them a PM or a VM, or use the Off-Topic section.
Example of spam posts
- Thanks for this hack! Looks great!
These kind posts are spam, and will serve no purpose but create unnecessary space on a thread, plus it's much better to leave a message on that user's profile or send them a private message since they'll get a notification and see it much quicker!
- this thang suxz
This post is not constructive, helpful, nor does it contribute anything. People like to have proper feedback so they can continue to improve their work.
- Correct Forum Section
When you go to post a new thread, make sure it's posted in the relevant section. This helps to keep the forum organised and tidy for everyone as well as you. If you post a thread in the wrong section, it will be moved/locked and will create extra work for the staff.
- Copyrighted materials
As sad as it sounds, ROMs are illegal and we need to make sure copyrighted content is kept under control at all times. You must not link to any material such as ROMs, warez or cracked software.
- Posts in other languages
PHO is an English-speaking forum, so please only converse in English. You are allowed to talk to members in other languages through VM/PM, however, but not in threads. This is to make sure everyone is able to read all content on the site. This does not apply however to Translation and Hack Projects.
- Forum specific rules/guidelines
Each section of the forum is different, and has it's own forum specific rules you must follow while posting there. We ask that before you post in the section, you check out the rules/guidelines first.
- Respecting other people
It's important you respect other members on the site at all times. Everyone has their flaws, and we're not perfect. At times you might feel like attacking another member, but the correct thing to do is report them to a member of staff and they will clear it up from there.
Posts, PMs or VMs containing advertisements, links to other forums, websites or blogs are strictly prohibited unless in the context of the discussion. But, you are allowed to post links to images or videos. The place you're allowed to advertise is your own signature.
- Pornographic, Nudity, and Graphic Content
PHO is a PG-15, and does not condone any inappropriate content in Posts, VMs or any public area of the site.
- Theft of content
Please do not take other people's work or contents and claim them as yours. We all work very hard to produce the things we do and release here for other peoples use.
- Swearing & Cussing
Using swear/cuss words is entirely unacceptable. Swear words are filtered on PHO, however, do your best not to use them regardless. Attempting to bypass the censor is also against the rules.
You are not allowed to use usernames that contains inappropriate language. Your username must be appropriate and not target anyone or anything. Maximum characters you can use in your username is 30. Webmasters reserve the right to edit any username when needed.
Thank you for visiting Pokémon Hackers Online, and we hope you enjoy your time here.
