The Rules of The Land Welcome to the KSI Forums. Our rules our pretty short, simple (and sometimes sweet & chewy). We (The Forum Staff) ask that you follow them at all times. Otherwise, Charlie will kick your butt. Let's get down to business. Your Rights: You have the right to remain here. Provided you follow the rules, or pay tribute in the form of Dr. Pepper.
Remember the KSI Code of Conduct? That still applies here. Remember the Forum Disclaimer? That applies too.
You have the right to have ONE and ONLY ONE forum account. All others will be found, will be subject to shock-therapy and Chinese water torture, and subsequently forcibly removed with the equivalent force of a nuclear bomb... Or a forum ban. (If you feel wrongful action was taken against you, contact a forum staff member).
Please don't post content that may be: Abusive, Obscene, Vulgar, Slanderous, Hateful, Threatening, Sexually-oriented, or just overall disrespectful. We will remove it, we will remove you, and then we'll go back to playing our games, and eating cheese puffs.
Be courteous to others. Even if you don't like them. We don't particularly care what reasons you have, which may or may not include: "They stole my pink doll (or "action figure") " or "They brought my K/D in the negative."
We ask politely that you keep your pictures of your cat out of the shoutbox. Or any other pictures for that matter. or videos, or GIFs (It's pronounced like Gift without the T, btw...), or basically any media that may stretch the shoutbox or cause inconvenience for others. Nobody likes an inconvenience.
Please follow any forum specific rules which may be conveniently posted in a Pinned Topic in the specific forums or in an Announcement of that forum. Failure to do so may result in a Nerf War or worse.
Please don't use the forums as your personal marketplace. We don't appreciate your requests for 48-hours, or your lovely ads for male-enhancement drugs.
We have the following tools at our disposal. Topic Locks, Topic Deletions, Post Deletions, Post Suspensions, Forum Suspensions, Forum Bans, IP Bans, Starvations, Executions, Floggings, Shock Therapy, and Good Ol' Fashioned Beatings with Leather Belts.
Oh, did we mention that we may use those tools at any time, for any reason we feel necessary, possibly without warning? Including if you break any of the rules listed here OR if we ask you to stop and you continue like a child in a supermarket? Yes, ... we may.
We ask you use Common Sense around the forums. That's all.
And of course the essential "We may alter these rules at any time without notice" statement which we will place here.
Play nice, here's a cookie, Game On!

We have all spent some serious time in creating our Xbox Live avatars over the years since their introduction to the Xbox 360 in late 2008. Whether we made them look comparable to how we look in person or end up becoming Master Chief in a tuxedo top, short shorts, and combat boots, we all have come to enjoy the characters that represent us while on Xbox Live. The selection of how we can make our avatars look though hasn’t changed much at all over the 9 years that they have been apart of the Xbox Live experience. There were numerous minor changes, such as the addition of the prop store, but the selection choices kept our characters very limited on how far / how close to ourselves we could push the avatar; that however is about to change! At the most recent E3 conference, the Vice President of Xbox, Mike Ybarra, revealed the updates to the avatar editor, calling it Avatar 2.0, that was supposed to originally be released Fall 2017. This week, Mike Ybarra tweeted out informing Xbox Users that the upgrade is being pushed back to early 2018 now, however from the teasers and images promoting the upgrade, as Mike says in his tweet, “patience pays off”. As seen in the article image, the level of customization is mass compared to what it currently allows. The diversity that Xbox is allowing users to consider is extremely mass too as the promotion video (linked at the bottom of the article) shows avatars in wheelchairs, prosthetic limbs, and even allowing for avatars to wear anything in the store to null out any gender issues. The level of care and consideration for all walks of people is something that was lacking up until now. The avatars themselves also come to life with the redesigned face, actions, attitudes, and so much more customization options. Bryan Saftler, a Lead Product Manager for Xbox says, “We built these from the ground-up, they’re being built in Unity which is a whole new engine. Avatars are meant for whatever you want your digital self to represent. We don’t want to put you in a box, there are no more checkboxes, no matter what you think you look like or what you want to present online.” An official release date for the update has yet to be announced, however, this is something that will likely be released in early 2018 so keep your eyes out for it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BpMBrrgQ3Jo
