As more and more IPB resources sites have introduced tougher measures to fight against warez I've noticed an increase in the number of warez users signing up here. If you use warez or are associated with warez in anyway your not welcome here.

IP.Board forum urls will now be required when signing up, I want to start off this way as to not penalize existing members who follow the law and work hard to provide themselves with IPB legally. I'll be reviewing what extra is needed in the future, whether it's the InvisionModding or InvisionTweaks model.

I apologize to the members who follow the law if this is an inconvenience to you in anyway, I've decided on this way so it doesn't require too much waiting or review. I'll leave the debates of socioeconomic status and moral issues to others.

Right now it's not a requirement for existing members. That's not to say these rules will be tougher in the future.

Only way to do it.. I have no use for any Warez products, and I've seen a lot of sites.


IP.Board forum urls will now be required when signing up, I want to start off this way as to not penalize existing members who follow the law and work hard to provide themselves with IPB legally. I'll be reviewing what extra is needed in the future, whether it's the InvisionModding or InvisionTweaks model.

no problem..

I apologize to the members who follow the law if this is an inconvenience to you in anyway, I've decided on this way so it doesn't require too much waiting or review. I'll leave the debates of socioeconomic status and moral issues to others.

No apologize needed..If you want a good site, then follow the rules.."No Warez"

Report them and I'll take a look. I don't think you'll find a site without warez people, I've come across IPB customers who use/share warez.
