Welcome to Zelda64.net. Announcements can be found below!
On April 9, 2016, 428 "abandoned" accounts were deleted. This is merely a spring cleaning of sorts. If your account was not active since early March AND you had less than 30 posts, your account was deleted. I sent two bulk emails to remind all such users that their accounts would be removed if they didn't at least log in by April 5, 2016. If your account was deleted, you'll have to re-register.

Currently, there are two ways moderators are informed of spam:

1 they see it with their own eyes
2 someone reports it

This is great, except it only works for this site. Spammers have an easy way of sending you emails and PMs through this site, using one of various captcha blocking methods.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU RECIEVE SPAM EMAILS:

Forward unwanted or deceptive messages to:

the Federal Trade Commission at spam@uce.gov.

Be sure to include the complete spam email.(USA only, search for your country's equivalent)

your email provider.(Google, yahoo, cox, Microsoft etc)

At the top of the message, state that you're complaining about being spammed.

the sender's email provider, if you can tell who it is. (Usually the site after the "@")

WHAT TO DO IF YOU SEE SPAM IN A PM OR A REPLY:

Report it.

WHAT IS DONE TO SPAMMERS:

Since we have a zero tolerance policy with spam and spammers, anyone caught posting spam (also advertising, or anything totally unrelated to Zelda64, or, Nike Shoes or jewelry) is immediately banned from posting and banned from the site. The IP address will also be blacklisted.

IF YOU HAVE BEEN BANNED AND WISH TO RETURN:
or
IF YOU HAVE BEEN ACCIDENTALLY BANNED:

Send an email to:

sylux102 (at) gmail (dot) com

Thank you and have a wonderful time.
