Q When I log in I see the rules page. Why is this?
A We have modified the warning system of the forums, so that anyone who has a warning of 10% or greater will see the OCC Rules. Depending on how high of a warning level you have will determine how often you see the rules. Warning 50% and higher, you will see the rules once every two hours.
Warning 40% you will see the rules once a day.
Warning 30% you will see the rules every other day.
Warning 10% - 20% you will see rules once a week.

Q How do I get a custom avatar title??
A You must have more then 500 posts before you can edit your avatar text. After 500 posts, you will see an Avatar Text box in the Edit Profile info section of the control panel.

Q I've been banned, and I feel it was unjust. Who do I contact about it?
A If the ban was done via the warning system, contact Bosco or Bishop. However, if you have been banned completely from OCC (i.e. user group says "banned" or you can no longer access the site) you must contact Bosco.

Q Can I submit news to OCC?
A Yes! There are two options available for you to use when submitting news. The first would be to send an email to news[at]overclockersclub.com. The other option would be to use the submit news link from the main page.

Q How long to "Official OCC Polls" run?

A If it is a non-security related bug, please post in this forum, otherwise please contact Bosco directly.

Q I don't like the name I registered with. Can I register a new account?
A You can, but the best solution would be to contact Bosco and have him change your account name. Registering a new account could be picked up as a duplicate, and inavertently get you banned.

Q I share a router, computer, etc with another member. How do I make sure we are not banned for multiple accounts.
A We understand this happens often. Contact a staff member, and we'll make a note of it. Though keep in mind, if we have to ban an IP for spamming, hacking, or some other malitious action all accounts tied to that IP will most likely be banned.
