Rules and Regulations (Read before agreeing)


IMC is very strict when it comes to our Regulations - We expect our members to follow rules and regulations at all times. There is no exception to anyone. Your post history/contribution does not count when it comes to following the Rules.

Thank you posts are strictly not allowed.

- Thank you posts are unnecessary. It does not matter how descriptive your thank you is how much you really mean it. A simple click to the Thumbs Up button (which represents thank you) is all it needs to be done for you to show appreciation. (You will find this button next to the Profile Avatar)

Always encrypt your links.

- You need to encrypt whatever links you are sharing. This is done to make it difficult for DMCA takedowns.

Requests should be shared either in the “Requests Section” or the original topic only.

- You are allowed to share any request in the Requests Section with only an exception where a topic already exists in the forum – In that case, you may request in the original topic post.

One account per person.

- You are only allowed to have one account. We have active bots and plugins that take care of tracking this - In the case when we found multiple accounts per person, We will issue a ban to both the accounts.

Waiting time is 15 days for Newly Registered users.

- New Members might have to wait 15 days until they can post anything. This is done to protect the website from Hijacks, Trolls, Rule-breakers etc. If you wish to remove this and have a valid reason, You may contact the Administrator by clicking - Contact Administration button.
