More 'rules' will come if we can't keep a decent community. A major rule we expect you to follow is: Don't promote any communities in here. There are plenty of promoting communities out there for you to do so.

We are growing at a rapid pace, but considering how many graphic thiefs are out there, communities like this one cannot seem to grow fast enough. Spread the word. By spreading the word you are spreading the awareness of how wrong graphic theft really is.
Remember: The more we grow, the more virtual space we cover. The more space we cover, the more members we get to. The more we are able to do that, the better our chances in stopping the culprits. One graphic stealing thief at a time!
