- Code dumps are not allowed. ^(Do not post Game Keys/Humble Links out in the open. If you wish to just "get rid" of various codes and links [you don't want to host a giveaway yourself], message us using Mod Mail. We will gladly take the keys, and host a giveaway [giving credit if requested].)
- Game Hoarding will result in a temp ban. ^(Don't win lots games then not play them.)
- You must have at least achieved level 2 on the Steam platform, to receive Steam games here. ^(You will not be able to take part in the community until you meet this requirement)
