General account rules

  • Only one account per user allowed

In case of a user using more than one accounts, all accounts will be made inactive.

  • No illegal, offensive and/or explicit content

You are not allowed to promote any illegal and/or offensive content, including but not limited to any illegal content, pornography, racism, "warez", or any other content offensive to any of our users. This website is intended for all ages so do not post anything that is not meant for younger people. Means of promoting such content include, but are not limited to posting in forum, comments on the website, chatroom, signatures, garage and car descriptions.

  • No commercial content

You are not allowed to promote commercial products and/or services through any of NFSUnlimited.net's services. If you wish to advertise your product/service, contact the webmaster on webmaster@nfsunlimited.net

  • No spam

That includes but is not limited to private message spamming, spamming in forums and in comments. Sending massive amounts of private messages asking users to visit your garage or your duel is generally not allowed unless you are only contacting users that are willing to receive such messages. Promoting your website, chatroom, forum can only be done once on all areas on the site. If posted as a new topic in the forum, it is not allowed to "bump" the topic - intentionally replying for only purpose of getting the topic to the top in the forum.


General posting rules

Applicable to forum and comments on website. Includes everything from "General Account Rules" plus the below listed rules.

  • No swearing

Although we do have some filters of bad words installed, not all are filtered out, so watch your language and communicate in a civilized manner.

  • Post on topic and in the correct board

Topic titles are there for a reason! Do not post posts unrelated to the thread you're posting in! For general discussions there's Off Topic board. For personal messages to other users use the Private Messaging system. Also please look at all the forum boards available (first part is Need for Speed only, second part is NFSUnlimited.net related and last part is off topic!) and choose which boar d fits your new topic best.

  • Special forum posting rules

- no cross posting (posting the same topic in multiple board) - if you are starting a new topic with a common question, please search the board first - do not post replies with no content, especially not to old topic - reviving old topics is not prohibited, but only do so if you are posting something that you feel is important

  • Post only in english

Posts in any other languages will be deleted. Please also try to keep your language 'correct' - don't revert to 'txt' speech or 'leet' speech, or whatever seems to the be the latest shorthand Internet flavour of the month. We have a lot of members here from all over the world, many of whom don't speak English as their native tongue. Be considerate and make your posts easy to read by all.

  • Pretending to be a moderator/staff member is not allowed

We have enough staff members that can deal with everything that's going on on the board. They will also know best how to deal with users breaking any rules. So do not tell anyone what to and what not to do, do not issue warnings. If you do spot any posts that break any of the rules listed on this page, we will be happy if you report it to us by either sending a pm to one of the staff members, or emailing staff@nfsunlimited.net


Signature and avatar rules

Includes everything from "General Account Rules" plus the below listed rules.

  • Signatures

  • Follow the rules for submitting pictures

Car showroom has specified rules, only pictures that follow the rules will be accepted. We do however have the right to accept pictures that don't follow the rules, but are exceptional. On the other side we also have the right to reject any picture. Each Showroom Challenge has competition specific rules, only pictures that follow those rules will be accepted without exceptions.


#nfsunlimited IRC Chatroom rules

Includes everything from "General Account Rules" plus the below listed rules.

  • No spam and flooding

Advertising your IRC channels with AMSGs is strictly prohibited and will result in banning the user. Flooding is also not allowed and will result in ban.

  • No swearing and flaming

IRC has no word filters installed, so watch your language! Flaming at other users will also not be tolerated!

  • Talk only in english

In the channel please only talk in english. Use /msg nick if you want to talk to someone in private.

Please note that kicking and banning users is used often in irc channels. Don't be a fool!


Warnings and banning

When found breaking any of these rules you will be notified via email (sent to the email set in your profile). That email will contain the reason and the number of so called "Warning points". You will be "awarded" with up to 10 warning points and when you reach 10, your account will be terminated. In every warning mail you will be notified on how many points you have been awarded and how many you have.


Please follow these rules as we want NFSUnlimited to be a user friendly website.
