    Reposting your sig when it was banned is asking for trouble, quick change it before dalien gest here! If your lucky shireknight will see it first.

    Guess its you advertising your blog, which seems quite political.

    Anyway, please remove it, its things like this that mean we don't get a generally nicer forum, as it takes up loads of the mods time, they might even ask for sigs to be removed (for everyone).

    I think certain people (moderators, and the folks from CA staff who are on here) are the only folks allowed to advertise their website. Regular forum people cannot. That's why they banned it probably. You should move it

    It happened to me too. I used a different word.
    Holy cow I didn't know that either. I can learn all kinds of words by reading the forums.

    It would appear that work is being done on the swear filter. Progress at last.

    Oh, i didn't know you had a website in it, you are not allowed to advertise your websites, or make political statements. Although whats considered political can change from person to person..one might not be aware than an otherwise accepted issue is a hotly debated issue in another country. I have no idea what your blog says, but it could be one of the two reasons, or a combo of the two.

    I think there is nothing wrong, as long as the website is not CAs Competition. Have a look for yourself.

    If you really want to find out who the moderators are there is a button at the top of the main forums page called "Quick Links". One of the links is called "View Forum Leaders" and lists all the SEGA and CA Staff, who use the forums, as well as the moderators.

    For starters, your sig links to your blog which is highly political. Overt political statements and promoting your own site is not allowed. Sig removed again. Please do not post a link to your blog here again.

    Thank you.

    Posting it is promoting it, even in a sig.

    Looks like a refresher is in order:

    Violation of the sig and other sites as mentioned by the lovely Clover:

    3. You will not use this forum to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, is material of a sexual matter, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise unlawful. You will not use this board to express your religious or political views.

    8. Membership is at the discretion of the forum owners and can be revoked accordingly. If you follow these rules most of the time you will become a respected member of this community.

    9. All actions taken by moderators are final and are not an invitation to begin a debate. If a thread is closed, moved or deleted it was because it violated one of the forum rules.

    13. Images are allowed on this board if they are screen shots from the game. On occasion we do permit other images as long as you own the copyright to them, such as the poster who took pictures of the trebuchet he built in his garden. But generally we prefer for you to not use images as they slow the boards down.

    Links are allowed but generally discouraged. Linking to a place you run be it a blog, forum, or even a YouTube video account, will be taken down as advertising.

    As said before, the links in the moderator sigs link to help sections and the ToC of the forum.
