#7.1 When posting a new game code, please make every effort to give credit to the original author/creator of the code. If you created be sure to give yourself credit. If you are genuinely unsure about who the author or creator is, make it blatantly obvious that you do not take credit for the release, and do not know who made it.

#7.3 Codes may be posted and released without "original author or creator" permission. This is because EC Staff does not have the time or manpower to do a "background" check on every code posted to make sure credit is accurate. Posted credit is based on the integrity system. Because we cannot check every release, it is up to forum members to give credit where credit is due. We will, under no circumstances, take down or edit a code because someone claims to be the original author/creator and wants it removed.
#8.1 Currently the creation of several member accounts by one member is permitted only if the duplicate accounts were not created to circumvent an account ban. If a ban is placed on an account, and it is found that the member has duplicate accounts, all the accounts will be banned; and all additional ones will be either banned or deleted.
#8.2 Mass creation of duplicate accounts (more than 3 per user) is not allowed and is considered taking advantage of #9.1. If an excess of multiple accounts are found by any member, they may be deleted/banned at the discretion of forum staff.
