These rules are for the Big Box Computer Game Collectors Facebook group located here.

SECURE YOUR FACEBOOK ACCOUNT: Accounts that have been compromised and start posting spam in the group will be permabanned. Be careful, and turn on two-factor authentication. In this day and age of online crime, we can’t take chances with our members on accounts that are not secure.

HARDWARE POSTS: Posts which contain only hardware are not allowed. We are a computer game group. Hardware centric posts will be deleted.

GAME SALES: Games sales and trades are not allowed in the Big Box Computer Game Collectors group. We have a sister group for buying, selling, and trading located here.

Do not post any ebay links, even for discussion. If you want to discuss an ebay link, post it in the Marketplace group, or post a screenshot of it instead.

Valuation posts are not allowed. If you think you have a legitimate value question, message a moderator.

KICKSTARTERS: Please do not post links to Kickstarters. These are considered transactional. You can discuss Kickstarters if you wish, but do not link directly to them. If you need a visual, post a screengrab.

PIRATES: Posting links to illegal software (which probably contain viruses) will not be tolerated in the group. You will be removed and permanently blocked as soon as we see them. There will be NO warnings – consider this your warning.

Posting about, discussing, or otherwise engaging in pirating of currently available software will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis at the admin’s discretion.

Please note: “Abandonware” is piracy. Please don’t post links to “abandonware” sites. NOTE there are some exceptions as it relates to game preservation (such as the Warcraft Adventures leak). Please contact an admin and ask before posting if this is the case.

ADMINS and MODS: Admins and Moderators have the power to ban or delete for any reason they see fit. These rules may be edited, tweaked, or changed at any admin’s discretion with no warnings needed.

DO NOT BLOCK ADMINS. You will be booted for doing so.
