Welcome to WarezBook , Please take your time to read forum rules.

1. General Board-wide Rules 🌐

1.2 Do not mini-mod. We would like to encourage and thank members to use the flag button but not add their own criticism. Impersonating a staff member is a serious offense and may lead to a permanent ban.
1.3 All publicly displayed messages are only limited to English. This includes posts, titles, profiles and other forms of public display.
● The use of "Thank You" or similar in another language as a reply will be allowed.
● The posting of a topic of another language (Movie, Anime, Ebooks, etc...) will be allowed only if the post has been clearly identified of the topic's language that is posted.
● The description or any information shall be posted in English, any topic or post is subject to the Staff's review as acceptable.
1.4 All topics and posts (Avatars included) that are posted on the site shall be done in a respectful and visually acceptable style and manner, any topic or post that has come under question will always be left to the staff's final discretion.
2. Warning System 🚨
2.1 Members who disobey the rules will be warned or suspended depending on what the moderator believes is the appropriate punishment.
2.2 Members can be warned a maximum of two times consequently. On the third, the member will be immediately suspended. This does not mean that you have to have a warning to get your account suspended, moderators may suspend your account without warnings depending on the offense.
2.3 A warning can have a time bomb unless your account is permanently suspended. If a time bomb is set, your warning will automatically expire after a certain number of days.
If you believe you do not deserve the warning please contact the moderator who warned you. Talking back to the moderator who gave you the warning with no sense of respect will lead to further warnings.
If you do not know why you received a warning, an email would have been sent to notify you of the reason why you were warned and who warned you.
3. Posting Etiquette (Manners) ✏️
3.1 🔴 To keep the forum clean, healthy and spam-free, Uploaders must abide the following posting limits:
- All members posting new discussions/topics shall post their topics with a 2 minute spacing between each topic and the maximum of new topics shall not exceed 10 new topics per hour and a total of 50 new topics in a 24 hours period or this can be deemed Topic Spamming and the account may be Suspended at the discretion of staff.
- The use of multiple duplicate accounts to try to get around this restriction will result in immediate banning of all associated accounts.
3.2 All topics must contain a full and valid topic description typed within the Topic Post in English.
3rd party source links (e.g. IMDb, Google, Amazon, Wikipedia) or images with information can be included but cannot be the only descriptive information supplied in the Topic post.
3.3 Treat others positively and with respect. Flaming other members or other forums will lead to a warning, possibly even a permanent account suspension.
3.4 Topics must be submitted to the relevant forums (Tags). The combining of different Operating System related programs combined in a single topic in one forum is not allowed and needs to be posted in their correct forum. (e.g. Window programs in the App forum, Mac in the Mac forum, Mobile Devices (cellphone, tablet, GPS, etc) goes in the Mobile forum, Linux and any other OSes belong in the Other OSes forum and so on)
● Software that has multiple OSes built into the program will only be allowed in the same forum.
Please read the forum descriptions for all forums prior to posting so as to post correctly.
3.5 Topic titles must have an appropriate description.
● An example for a good description is "Help needed with game".
● An example for a wrong description is "HEEEEELP!".

● Allowed: Requests (Includes requests in helpdesk & graphics) may only be bumped once every 48 hours since the last reply.
● Disallowed: Bumping topics continuously to get them up to the first few pages. This includes using additional accounts (either your own or others) to do so.

Replies such as:
'You're welcome', 'no problem', 'thanks for replies', 'fresh links' or similar are allowed only after 4 or more posts by other members.
3.8 Double posting of the same links (also called dupe) may lead to a warning, especially if you have your own independent topic for a set of links and yet still post the same links in related topics with the intention of gaining exposure. Posting the same links in more than one account even if an account was suspended previously and topics removed will not be allowed.
This rule also covers the following:
● Posting of the same links in more than one topic in link generating topics will not be allowed.
● If an unreasonable amount of the same topic is posted by a member even if the links are different or different encoded versions in a unreasonable excess are posted this may be considered spamming and may be dealt with by a warning or worse and all of the posted topics may be binned.
● Changing the topic title name slightly of the same topic by a member on different topic posts to try and circumvent this rule will be dealt with also as spam if it is done to post the same topics in excess.

Web hosting. Referrals. Affiliation. Warez sites. Survey sites. Sites that require registration, subscription or a fee to access. Links within posts that links to non-allowed 3rd party in order to gain access to the content (eg Link protectors, Text files, Altered links, Links directory, Torrents or any Torrent related activity...). To clarify, we only allow either direct links to content or use of allowed 3rd party services listed below:
● Links posted using Safelinking/kprotector/filecrypt shall only contain links from the same File Host per Safelinking/kprotector/filecrypt link or folder (Multiple part links from the same File Host per Safelinking link is OK). The posting of Premium links and Free links from the same File Host under the same Safelinking/kprotector/filecrypt link is not allowed. Premium and Free links for the same File Host shall be posted in separate Safelinking/kprotector/filecrypt links.
The posting of multiple different host links within only one Safelinking/kprotector/filecrypt link is not allowed.
● In the Request forum Premium links may be posted without matching Free links only if the OP of the Request has stated in the Topic that they will accept Premium links on a agreed File Host. If the OP has not Requested/Approved Premium links than the Request Topic will follow the Rules of only Free links or matching Free links for any Premium links posted. Any member trying to pass off a small link that can easily be a free link but try to pass it off as a premium available only link so as to profit from it will have the post dealt with as spam and will be dealt with by Staff as needed.
