    I've been wondering about this for a while. Is it OK to send someone a ROM site through PM's?

    I haven't done it yet... [​IMG] (Honest!)

    I've read the rules! [​IMG]

    I'm pretty sure you are not allowed to send ROM sites through PM. The rules and regulations say
    "# Members may NOT ASK and MAY NOT PROVIDE INFORMATION or LINKS for and to places that provide ROM, WAD, and ISO files.
    # Members may also NOT mention torrent or warez-containing sites or channels by name or otherwise."
    May not provide probably includes private messaging.

    Side note: It's not aloud it's allowed.

    Uh, unless they feel like manually changing the account password to something they can enter - no, they cannot read PM's.

    You can send whatever you like really, just don't tell people you are doing so. They don't want legal trouble, obviously.

    Well if
    1. No one catches you
    2. Mods don't check on your PMs for w/e reasons
    3. The other person doesn't snitch on you
    nobody will find out

    I guess we don't really have a hard rule on this, but this is how I see it.

    What you do through PM is your own business, HOWEVER, DO NOT

    A. Request or Offer anyone illegal material in any of the forums.
    This also includes things like
    "can someone pm me the rom or wad"
    "pm me if you want the rom"

    I know that we miss these things sometimes, but if we notice it we will take action.

    B. PM a random person asking for roms.
    If you PM the wrong person, they will probably report you, and again we will take action.

    So you will have to have some other way to communicate outside of the forum, or have someone you already know well, before communicating such material through PM. Which imo essentially defeats the whole purpose.
