The Administrative Team, Team Simuscape, including, but not limited to, the Artists Guild and other staff members will endeavor to give members reasonable notice of such changes. These rules apply to all forums on Simuscape unless otherwise stated.


2.2 Specific Forums and Sub-Forums

Some forums and/or sub-forums have their own specific set of rules to be followed. In such case, these set of rules are clearly marked by the forum/sub-forum master, (e.g. Artist Guild member, Simuniquem member).

A member, by invitation or by own request, granted permission to be upgraded to an Artist Guild member is obliged to accept and sign the Simuscape Non Disclosure Agreement, NDA;

2.3 Communication

Private Messages, (pm's), sent by the Administrative Team, Team Simuscape, will be considered read once the member has subsequently logged on to the site. It is the responsibility of each member to ensure that the registration e-mail address supplied is valid and regularly checked. Failing to provide a valid e-mail address may lead to an account deactivation.


2.4 Simuscape Administrative Team, Team Simuscape

Administrators, assisting administrators, moderators and other staff members are responsible for the smooth and efficient running of the site. The Administrative Team, Team Simuscape, reserves the right to take whatever action is deemed appropriate in any given situation, regardless of whether there is a specific rule covering that situation or not. If there is a misunderstanding or dispute, bring the issue up politely with that staff member in private. In all matters, the decision of the Administrative Team, Team Simuscape is final.

When appointing new staff members, the Administrative Team, Team Simuscape, only pick trusted, active, and helpful members to fill vacant positions. Staff positions are never obtained by asking or campaigning for them.


2.5 Prohibited Actions

It is strictly and expressly prohibited to post or upload;

  • Anything relating to the pirating, or copying, of any software game title.
  • Anything referring to CD keys or no CD cracks.
  • Any content malicious to computer hardware or software, such as viruses
  • Any content that violates another members privacy.
  • Any material that is the work of another individual but is being represented as original. Permission must be obtained from the original creator, and due credit must be given, before including any element of that creator's work in custom content upload.


2.6 General Site Conduct

It's recommended that members do not give out personally identifiable information to anyone else on the site or the internet. There is a zero tolerance for the following behavior;

  • Swearing, (masked or otherwise), offensive, or profane language.
  • Any offensive, pornographic, or obscene material.
  • Overt sexually loaded comments or content.
  • Discrimination against the age, race, gender, religion, ethnicity, nationality, or sexual orientation of another member
  • The personal safety of our members is a primary concern. Any inappropriate or unwelcome attention, harassment, solicitation, or sexually orientated comments or behavior directed towards another member, either publicly or privately, should be immediately reported to the Administrative Team, Team Simuscape.
  • Inappropriate use of Simuscape User Accounts. The following is not permitted;

  • Creating or using a clone account while banned.
  • Using clone accounts to bump the original users threads, double post, or to otherwise disrupt the forums.
  • Creating spam-bot accounts solely for advertising purposes.

The Administrative Team use a range of options to deal with breaches of the site rules. The staff will always endeavor to use the fairest and lightest method available. Common sense rules, like politeness, are not explicitly stated but are still enforced.


2.7 Forum Activities

Regular forum posts should normally be posted in the default text size, color and font. Exceptions include the use of text formatting tools and color of more creative posts.

What happens at a different site stays at that site, (e.g. if a member has a dispute or grievance with another member, moderator, administrator, or webmaster of a site other than Simuscape, it may not be brought here for discussions).

Users may not post within their own thread simply for the sake of making that thread appear at the top of the forum. This is commonly referred to as "bumping". The edit function should be used to add to a previous post.

Do not revive or bump old threads after they have dropped to the later pages, unless there is significant new topical information to add. Please make an effort to find the right forum to ask questions or post a new topic. Many common questions have already been answered, and a simple search may locate most of them. Please attempt to find the answer through our search machine first, before posting a new thread.

All threads are advised to use an informative title describing the topic or question accurately. “Help!!!" or "Hallo!!!” is unlikely to get many useful responses, and is generally considered misleading. Such titles may be alterred by the staff.


2.8 Site Language

Simuscape, although located in Sweden, is an English speaking forum with an international audience. Proper spelling and grammar is generally expected. Overuse of net-speak or txt abbreviations should be avoided. Please be patient and courteous with non-native English speakers trying to write in English.





    Privacy Policy


3.0 Introduction

The Simuscape administration considers your right to privacy most seriously, in that you should feel comfortable using this site. Our Privacy Policy deals with personally-identifiable information, below referred to as "data", that may be collected. Our Privacy Policy doesn't apply to other entities not owned or controlled by the site editor, nor does it apply to users not employees of the site editor, or that are not under the site editor's control.


3.1 Data Collection

To take advantage of the full content of Simuscape a membership registration is required. Registration of such an account requires a valid e-mail address and a username that has not been chosen by another member. You are not required to provide any other information should you not want to. Be aware that the username of your choice, your e-mail address provided, and any other entered information may render you personally identifiable. This may possibly be displayed on this site intentionally depending on your choices during the registration process, or unintentionally subsequent to a successful act of intrusion by a third party. Similar to many other sites, the site editor may also automatically obtain general information contained in server log files, such as your IP address and cookie information. Information about advertising and how it may be served on this site, in such case it's indeed the site editor's policy to display advertising, is set forth below.


3.2 Data Usage

Data obtained may be used to further customize and improve your user experience on Simuscape. Undoubtedly efforts will be made to prevent your data from being available to third parties unless,

  • provided for otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy,
  • your consent is obtained, (e.g. when you choose to opt-in or opt-out for the sharing of data,
  • site service is provided which requires interaction with a third party, or provided by a third party, (e.g. application service provider),
  • pursuant to legal action or law enforcement,
  • your usage of this site violates the site editor's policy, terms of service, or other usage guidelines, or if it's deemed reasonably necessary by the site editor to protect legal rights and/or property, or
  • this site is purchased by a third party, in which case that third party will be able to use the data in the same manner as set forth in this policy. It's adviced in such event you use links displayed on this site to visit other sites, you should get familiar with privacy policies on those sites.


3.3 Cookies

Similar to many other sites, this site sets and uses cookies to enhance your user experience, and further to acknowledge for instance personal settings. In the event commercial advertisments may be displayed on this site, cookies may be set and accessed on your computer, although being subject to privacy policies provided by parties providing the advertisment. It should be noted that parties providing advertisments do not have access to this site's cookies.


3.4 Minors

You are provided with the ability to edit the information stored for your user account during registration. For editing purposes, visit your User Control Panel. You are also provided with the ability to delete your user account, and content or other data provided, not stored within your user account, may continue to remain on this site at the site editor's discretion. User accounts upgraded to the Artists Guild earn specific privileges, obtained and validated at the time of the upgrade. Such specific circumstances may also apply to whole or parts of permissions for user admittance of the Simuniquem area.


3.6 Privacy Policy Changes

When necessary or prompted for, changes may be made to this policy. Substantial changes will be announced on the site, or in particular cases, by e-mail messages sent to your initially provided, (i.e. account registering), e-mail address, stored within your user settings.


3.7 No Guarantees

While this privacy policy states standards for maintenance of data, and while efforts will be made to meet said standards, the site editor is not in a position to guarantee compliance with these standards. There may be factors beyond the site editor's control resulting in disclosure of data.
